  1. Fleece: Re: What should I use for cleaning fleece bedding?

    I'm doing sort of the same thing myself right now (crib liners), and I have a question. Do you have any trouble with the absorbent layer slipping under the fleece, or does it stay put okay? I taped...

    So glad you finally got your gp baby! Abby is so sweet! And it's awesome that she's getting used to you... Tannim took a while with me. But now he actively looks for me and insists on his routines....

    Adopting: Re: I got new pigs, everybody!

    Tannim gets pellets all day too... I didn't know there was any other way! I give him a scoop in the morning and then he just takes all day to finish them off.

    Diet: Re: Veggies to feed with mazuri pellets?

    I'm not familiar with mazuri pellets, and Amazon didn't list the ingredients/percentages/etc, so I can't really say. Personally, I don't worry about the ratios too much; I just try to make sure that...
