Hey all,

So I have had my two girls for awhile now and never any issues with them. Well recently they have decided that they MUST get under the fleece. I used to use about 10 binder clips without any digging issues, I have gone to 26 and still they go dig and dig until they get under, I have gone from about 1.3 yds of fleece to 2 full yards so it goes well over the edges a few inches and still they are insistant on gettiong under. I have added another igloo since one gal seems to be hogging one, and it is a larger so both coudl go in together I figured (funny the both huddle in the smaller oen still) I added more loose fleece and hay since I thought they were cold or maybe just "needed" to borrow... I am at a loss... any suggestions or anyone have this issue?
 
That's amazing that they can still manage to dig under with the fleece with it being clipped down to the sides. I wonder if adding a cozy fleece tunnel or something would help. How many hidey places are there in total?
 
They have a cuddle cup, a fleece forrest which is a whole grid of fleece pieces tied, a double igloo and a single. Three months weve had this set up and only the past two weeks have they been adamant that they get under. I even cut their nails so they wouldn't rip the fleece to get under
