Okay, so right now in my girls litter box I have cat litter pellets made from recycled materials they handle it well... but, im wondering if maybe I should switch to a custom made fleece liner or made my myself to fit their litter box because litter can be pricey and money is tight as I'm sure it is with most of you too and it goes very quick at times. and I'm thinking it would be more comfortable for them as well on their little feet. help on deciding please?? :confused::?::(

I use homemade fleece liners in my kitchen. I cut a little bigger than kitchen as it does shrink some. I sewed a uhaul pad to fleece. Under that I do put a towel for extra absorbency as they do a lot of their business in there while eating and drinking. I have several of them as I switch them out every 3 to 4 days. Just shake out and throw in the wash! Good luck :)

I'd recommend Joann's Alova suedecloth. It wicks like fleece, but hay doesn't stick to it. Also, based on my experience, it starts to wick after one wash. You can sew it to uhaul pad.

I haven't try the pattern ones. From cloth diaper forums, people are having problems with the pattern ones.

You should be able to find them on those sites, since they are used for cloth diaper. Make sure not to get microsuede, they are different fabric.

Good luck I tried fleece in the litter box/kitchen area and it didn't work for my boys. Everytime I clean up the hay they immediately pull enough out of the racks to lay in. They eat the hay in the rack but want to lay in it as well. I have carefresh around still and am going to go back to that for now, just do not like how dusty it is.

Is there a reason why you want to buy from Amazon or eBay, and not Joann?
I just saw them on sale at Joann for $3.60 per yard. They are also offering promotion for flat shipping for $2.99.

lissie - JoAnn's website says this suedecloth is to be handwashed and line dried. Is that what you do with yours, or can it handle the washer and dryer?

I have always washed all my piggies bedding in hot water and tumble dry. I've never had any problems with them.
They may shrink, so you should wash before you cut them for your sewing project.
