    Dispisable cozies?

    Has anyone ever thought of disposable cozies? Like, they would be made of dollar store fleece stuffed with carefresh. You could just make a whole bunch at a time, and just throw them away every week or two? Am I crazy or does that sound like a good idea? :crazy:

    Cat question.

    How old is a kitten when it stops needing KMR(if it has no mother?) How would you introduce a young kitten to an older cat(5 weeks to a 5 year old)? What would be the best way to feed a young kitten(dry and canned, preferably)? Actually, an info on small kittens would be nice! Thanks!

    Is it possible to build an upper level, without zip ties? I don't have an upper level at the moment, but I enjoy rebuilding my cage, and it is tons of work to un-do and re-do zipties, plus the guy at the hardware store gives me a weird look every time I buy $40 worth of zip ties. Especially...

    Hay This hay ok?

    OK, I found this local hay at a small pet shop(non animal selling, adopts out/rehomes small animals), and its pretty cheap($7 for 3.3 lbs) and its SUPER soft, it must be third cut, there is no seedheads, or stems in the bag so far, the pigs arent insane for it, but I have some 2nd cut timothy...

    Bedding Got rid of fleece.

    I have gotten rid of my fleece, mainly because cleaning it takes too long. I am very busy most days and I would rather spend that time giving floortime, and cuddles than cleaning. I never noticed before, but now my bedroom doesn't smell so, poopy, it doesn't smell like anything now! I was...
