View Full Version : Fleece bedding questions

02-22-05, 10:55 am
Hi there,
I just finished making a 2x4 cage, and am interested in using fleece as bedding. I have a few questions, though:

1. Can someone show me a picture of how they attach the fleece to the coroplast? (Or, write a detailed explanation)

2. How many layers of newspaper do I need to use? (I have one GP - wish I had move, but one's our limit right now)

3. Do I put anything underneath the newspaper? (Fleece on top, newspaper underneath, ???, coroplast)

Thanks for your help

hi there:)

1. I have just started useing fleece- but not really, i just use towels- they do the same job that the fleece does and they are cheaper plus you can clean them a lot better too. all that I do is put the newspaper now ( cover the bottom) and them but one white towel down and then a bluse or brown one on top of that, i then just tuck the ends underneith and they stay, just fine. no tape or that (mine just eat it any ways)

2. I use about one whole newspaper and then every other day i take out one section and it's fast and easy.

3. no you don't need to put anything underneith just the coroplast.

If you put many layers of newspaper down, you won't have to change it all everyday, just the wet ones.

I don't attach the fleece, I just lay it down and it comes up the sides about 1 or 2 inches. If you wanted to attach it then you could use velcro and attach it to the sides of the coroplast, just make sure you cut the fleece 2-3 inches larger than the inner dimensions of the cage, sew velcro on the fleece where you want it and get some sticky backed velcro for the coroplast.
