  6. General: Re: What are you guys getting your pigs for xmas?

    A cage expansion! It's another 2 x 5 C&C cage, which at the end of all this will give my boys twice the room they have now. I'm very excited about setting it up for them!

    Fleece: Re: Trouble Getting Fleece to Wick

    I soaked my fleece liners in diluted vinegar for about an hour (I put them in a bathtub, ran warm water, and dumped vinegar in), which did the trick for me.

    If it's any comfort, I'm not good at building things either. Putting together my boys' C&C cage did try my patience on more than one occasion, but seeing the end result was well worth it. Besides,...

    I have a large carrier because it's the cat carrier my family's used for years and I figured it would be better than buying a brand-new one.
