    Newpaper on top of fleece?

    So knowing that guine pigs "eliminate waste and feces" in their hideys a lot, would it be ok to put newspaper under the hidey? Since newspaper isn't all that absorbant I figured the pee would go through to the fleece which would wick it to the towels. Then I could just roll up the newspaper everyday. Would this work? Or would carefresh on top of newspaper w/ fleece underneath work? Or should I just hav carefresh and newspaper by themselves in tht 1 spot or like hav a litter bok ther? Thanks I'm tired sorry...but ya hepl is appreciated thanks

    Newspaper will get messy. You can wrap a small piece of fleece over a folded hand towel and place it under the hidey. Change it daily.

    Newspaper totally defeats the purpose of the fleece. It won't work well, will leave the pigs on wet bedding, and will be a mess to clean up.

    If you're using fleece, make a few small fleece pads by sewing fleece to towels or mattress padding and put those under the hidey. They can be changed as often as necessary without having to change the whole cage.
