    Damp under fleece?

    Recently when Iíve removed the kitchen area of my boysí cage, itís really damp under there, extending a bit under the fleece pad as well. I canít figure out where itís coming from. I donít think itís pee since it has no scent, so the only thing I can think of is itís the water bottle somehow, but I just got a new, non leaking one!

    any ideas would be appreciated, Iím worried for my boys, since I know damp isnít good for them

    Is it one of those plastic kitchen inserts from this site?

    Maybe it could be the condensation from the pee/water in the cage. You could try putting paper towels or fleece under there to wick up the moisture.

I figured the wetness was from my not drying it enough. After removing the kitchen (didn't like the pigs having to leap over the edge of the kitchen), I never had this issue again.

    So, update! I think it was an issue with the water bottle, because I move it so that it was attached on the inside of the cage and not on the outside (with the nozzle through the bars), and haven't had water issues since.
    I think when my boys were drinking, water was dribbling out and between the cage and the kitchen.
