    This. Is. PERFECT! Thank you SO SO much for this!!!! I've been waiting to make a C&C cage because I was concerned about (A) Them digging up the fleece (B) Them pooping on the surface after they dig up the fleece, and (C) Getting it to fit on a second-level cage. I can finally start using a C&C again!!!

    So glad my idea could help! I have been working on the design since summer as I too have a digger pig! Plus a crappy apartment washer and dryer so I needed something that would be stiff and solid but come apart completely to wash!

ID:	41753 That's just too parts of my cage I love it already. It was a bit of work scoring the coroplast for my cage, but I really like it! I haven't done the ramp yet, but everything else is done

    I agree, this is a great idea. We will be getting our very first guinea pig soon and this may be the way we go instead of flippers.

    It's such a good idea.
    Just a quick question, with your peeing boys, what absorbent material do you use under the blankets?
    Someone mentioned puppy pads under fleece, advice?

    If you search the forums and photo galleries, you see that people use a variety of things. Some that I have seen include U-haul pads, mattress pads, puppy pads, and towels. Personally, I would recommend U-haul pads. They seem to keep the smell down and absorb the most urine.

    Thank you @Onetwo !!!!
    I finally got more coro and made one of these for my new cage and it's awesome!! No more digging!
    I didn't get it as snug as I wanted so I need to make another one but it still works wonderfully with sweeping and looking neat.

    Thank you for posting for all of us to benefit from.

    I don't think there would be a problem, as long as it was sturdy enough to clip the fleece through. The pigs wouldn't be sitting directly on it.


    I just finished my liners yesterday, they're amazing and my pigs love them. They make the hard to reach areas much easier to clean. This should be a sticky thread. Thanks for the awesome idea! I knew I wanted fleece, because I'm allergic to dusty wood shavings and carefresh, but my sewing skills are lacking.

    They're working great for the base of my cage, the 2x7 which I change about once a month. The pigs never pee down there, it's always dry. and clean.

    I'm still desperate for a solution for my 2x3 kitchen though.

    How much fleece per section with some to fold over? I found some sport themed fleece of Texas Ranger would love to have for my herd. Though for some reason I can't find the binder clips at walmart Target even office depot i'm a lost cause hehe. MLB Fleece Fabric-Texas Rangers & MLB fabric at Joann.com would this work?

    Well my coro is a different size than everyone else because my cage is a 3x6 that is divided so your fleece will depend too! Just measure the inside of your base. Most fleece is 58-62 inches wide so I'd make sections either that wide or that long or HALF that size for maximum usage of the fleece. My sections are about 6 inches smaller width wise than a 2x3 So I cut the fleece 30 inches for the 3 grids width. That way I can get 2 cage changes out of 5 yards. (I think it was 5 yards) IDK its been a while since I cut fleece! LOL

    That is REALLY weird that you can't find them! Are you looking by the paper clips? I missed them the first few times at walmart too! They tend to be in small boxes with no pictures.OfficeMax Heavy-Duty Black Binder Clips Here's what they look like...
