    Fleece Bedding Hazards?

    Hey guys! I talked to my vet the othe day about adoptable cavies in our area. I told her about my plans for the cage and accessories. She (who is also my close friend's mom) said she was worried about the guinea pigs possibly injesting the fleece bedding and it being fatal. Any suggestions on how to keep the bedding super safe? Also, while I am posting, I need some name sugestions. I contacted a shelter about a pair of guinea pigs and I aso far have two male names and one female names. I dont know if its a girl pair or boy pair, so does anyone have any female name suggestions? so far I have Gwen, but im looking for unique names that aren't "people names". Any suggestions?

    Personally, none of my pigs have ever eaten their fleece bedding, though none of my pigs were/are big chewers. A lot of people also clamp the edges of their fleece with clips against the walls and therefore they really wouldn't be able to bite it very easily. I don't think that you would have to worry about it happening.

    None of my guinea pigs have ever chewed on their fleece.

    Mine, either. And I think the right diet has a lot to do with that; if you keep them supplied with hay, that seems to take care of their urge to gnaw and they're less likely to chew on stuff they shouldn't. Fleece is soooooo easy, cheap, and cozy for piggy feet...I'll never go back!
