    Quick Question regarding floor time...

    Normally we lay out extra fleece blankets, put up the "playpen" and let the pigs go! I picked up an extra fleece throw the other day and didn't get a chance to wash it - and then used it for floor time. Our pig was on it before maybe 10-15 minutes before my daughter reminded me that I hadn't washed it.....we picked her up and got her back into the cage. Is there anything to be concerned about? I thought the big deal about fleece was more about getting it ready to use as cage lining -- of course I'll wash this fleece throw now before we use it again -- but for my daughter's sanity: no harm, no foul?

    thanks!

    I don't see that there will be any problem with your pig being on the fleece before laundering it. You are correct, the idea of washing it first is to prepare it for wicking. I think your pigs will be fine.

    I don't see a problem either.

    Thanks for answering! Logically speaking, I couldn't see where it would be a problem -- but my daughter's worry got the best of me!! (And I just want to do right by the piggies!)
