My girls love to crawl under the fleece and run around, it's really cute actually but it drives me nuts. lol I have all the fleece clipped to the sides except the back wall. It's 12 inches and the fleece doesn't fit over it, which is how they get under it. Do I need bigger fleece blankets? Or does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?

Is there a reason the back is 12 in high? Can you cut it down? Are you talking about the coroplast or plastic liner or do you clip it to the grids?

I'm talking about the coroplast. Sorry, I thought I mentioned that. Three of the sides are the normal 6 inch, and the fourth is 12 inches.

How about velcro dots strategically sewed onto one end of the fleece with the other side on the coroplast? They sell dots with one side with a sticky back and one side sew on for projects like this - fabric to a non fabric.

What about finding clips with a flat side (I've seen chip bag clips that when not in use are magnets on fridge) and gluing to the 12" wall?

Is it big enough?? I had a 12" wall and the others were 6" I didn't find it useful. It is possible to see so it will fit though.

How far up the 12" wall will the fleece go? If you are close, then I would trim the coroplast down a little. Or, can you sew a strip of material on the short side to make it long enough? The velcro idea sounds good too. Good luck!

AlyssaNicole I had the same issue and with me having a HUGE cage it was difficult to get the fleece up the walls and even then they still found away. I have been working and tweeking my design and I just actually finished a youtube video to help people with this issue.... Check out my video. It will solve your problem I think:

Looks like a good idea.. But I would be really nervous about the clips.. Piggy toes and feet can get very injured IMO..

The metal wires can be removed and put back on as needed very easily.

That's a GREAT video Onetwo!
I think I'll have to see if I have enough leftover coroplast to make some.
