Jen, you're quite popular with your items being available in multiple places and for multiple species. ;)

I love the cage pads. I was able to donate most of my towels to my vet and the shelter since I only use them now for the vet bedding and sometimes the pen. I found that the cage pads aren't cost effective for some of the pigs who have a high urine output. Too much laundry! I use the commercial machines at the laundromat and it can be quite expensive. :(

That's great GPF!

I can see how that can get pretty costly if you have to go to the laundry mat!

I need to invest in a second washer and dryer. I always have SO much pig laundry to do. Our regular laundry suffers waiting for the pigs stuff to get done.

Then i'll have twice as much time to sew! Yay!

JEN! Let me get this straight ... you have a bunch of pets, a little daughter and a husband, run a business, AND go to school?!? Is that even possible? I'm very impressed!

HaHa, well I suppose it is possible. It's rough though! Like I said, I can't wait for school to be over. I may get to take one day off a week or something crazy like that! I don't think I would know what to do if I wasn't running around like a crazy person.

I saw them Brenda. Those boys are so cute and special. I fell in love with them when I read the whole story and saw all of the wonderful pictures. I told my husband he was lucky that they were all the way in California! They look like they are wonderfully bonded, and going to be super spoiled from here on out :)

Thanks about the young and cute part;) I'm going (actually husband and I) are both going to get all of our hair chopped off tomorrow! We've been growing it out to donate to locks of love and we are finally ready to do it! Jason has beautiful red hair, which there is a shortage of, so some lucky kid will get that!

Anyways, i've never had super short hair and I am quite nervous about it! I bet it will make getting ready quite a bit quicker now though.

Jen- have you had many orders for the cage liners? I'm very curious to see what people thought of them. They seem like a wonderful idea and would make my cage cleaning a breeze especially being pregnant and hating the nastyness and smell of boar pee and poop. Silly boys..

I was searchin' for some testimonials! ;-)

I have a testimonial. I am anxiously awaiting two more sets of cage liners because I purchased one set of cage liners a few weeks ago and am absolutely hooked!

With the exception of wiping down the cage once in a while, cage cleaning literally takes me 10 minutes for a 3x5 C&C cage. Then the used pads get shook out outside and washed. SUPER EASY!!! Initial cost may seem a bit for some but when you consider how much you will save on bedding AND time it is definitely an EXCELLENT investment. Additional bonus, the piggies LOVE it! Mine popcorn every time I put a new pad down.

Awesome! I'll have to go home and count my grids, we just moved and I re-designed their cages. I think this is a great idea and I've been searching the past few days on what to do about their bedding to make it easier on me. The bonus is like I said we just moved into our new house and we got a new set of washer and dryers so I get to use the old set for the boys bedding! Can't beat that.

Send Jen your cage dimensions and she will work out what pat size is best for cage and washer if the standard 1x2 pads don't work.

Thanks for all of the answers EARPS!

I've had quite a few happy customers with the cage liners LANDREWS. I use them myself and will never go back. It really does make cleaning much easier. I have an entire bedroom full of cages and I can do everything in probably 30 minutes. Where as before using disposable litter looking at probably 2 hours at least. Even when I switched over to using basic towels and fleece, I was still spending at least an hour cleaning everything.

When I clean cages now I take a large storage tub into the room, pick up the liners and shake them off into the tub. Then just throw them in the wash. Cleanup is super easy :)

And Earps is right. Just let me know the length and width of your cage and we can figure out what will work best as far as sizes of cage liners.
