    fleece and uhaul pads

    I am in the process of building my first C & C cage and I was curious about how the uhaul pads work with the fleece? Do you just tuck the fleece under the pad to keep it down or will I need to pin it to the sides of the chloroplast? Thanks!

    There was a thread started earlier today very similar to what your asking. Check out the link I posted and you should be able to get a few different ideas from there.

    Thank you. I think I would rather fold it underneath just for aesthetic purposes if I can get it to work for me, but if not I will pin it to the sides.

    I recommend trying just folding the fleece under, like you mention. I do that for my four pigs, and so long as you don't have a pig that is intent upon getting under the fleece, then you should be fine.

    I'll try to put enough stuff in there for them to hide in that they won't be concerned with getting under it. But, seeing as how all of my animals are difficult, I'm sure there'll be one that ruins it for the bunch. LOL.

    Re: fleece and uhaul pads

    I made pads with mine. two layers of uhaul and one layer of fleece on top. I have 2 2x5 cages and it works out with all their cuddle cups and what not, to be 1 load per cage. Not bad if you ask me. If you can sew or know someone willing to do it, I would highly suggest sewing pads.
