Haha, good thing you reminded me! The camera was gone for a while, but I found it again a couple of weeks ago. I'm gonna use the purple fleece next time, can't wait!
They were REALLY confused when I put in the lime green liners. They had a look of "wtf?!" on their faces, it was priceless. I hope they do it again when I have the camera ready.

Woot! We're steppin' on multi-coloured bugs and frogs!

Kaylee approves of eating breakfast on new, clean and fancy fleece.

Inara approves (but is a bit comfuzzled!) of new girly fleece.

Those ladies are just too darn cute! LOVE the bug fleece ;) I really liked that snowflake fleece also.

I had ordered extra of that lime zebra one you picked and mad TONS of liners for our cages. I'm in love with it!

The bugs are awesome! And the lime zebra! I need to order more of those soon (when I've got space to put it somewhere... heh...need to rearrange to make room for more piggie stuff!)

Jen - I'm dying to see pictures of your piggys' cage(s)! Also, how much would a liner for a 2x5 be? Are the liners already pre wicking? How thick are they, and are the towels absorbent enough for one week? Thanks so much!

There are pictures of my cages somewhere on the "show your cage" thread, but those were pre-move. We moved in the beginning of January and had to re-do the cages and I have yet to get pictures yet, but I will :)

I don't make a full 2x5. I would recommend getting a 2x2 & 2x3. I find this easier for washing purposes. The prices are listed here http://www.jenscustomcrafts.com/cage-liners.html

I use a thick towel for the bottom layer, batting for the middle layer, and fleece for the top layer. How long they last really depends on your pigs and the cage size. I normally don't go more than 5 days, but have on occasion gone a week. Some cages need to be changed every 2-3 days, I find this more common with aging piggies.

We are trying out some liners with that new Zorb material to see how well they work and if that fabric is worth the hype. So you may be seeing those on my site before too long!

Hey Jen - sorry for all the questions - but if I have a 1x2 coro kitchen in a 2x5 (thus, making a 2x4 running space), should i order just for the running space? And what would be more convenient, etc. - a 2x3 and a 2x1 or a 2x2 and a 2x2?

No problem :) If you planned on using disposable bedding in the kitchen area, then I think the best bet would be 2 2x2 liners in just the running area. I use all liners in my cages, but I have extra pads that I put under their hay hammocks and those need to be swapped out on a daily or every other day basis.

If you do want to use liners in the kitchen area than I would suggest using 1x2 liners in that area so you can swap them out more often than the liners in the rest of the cage.

Okay - I will definately think of purchasing! (Along with a bed maybe?) ;-)

Also, how would I wash them? Just like normal fleece and towels with 3/4 cup of vinegar? Oh, and I found the pictures of your cages! They are ridiculous! Haha, I'll be dreaming of them until I oneday have the space to have a "critter den" like you Jen. :D

We just wash them in warm water on a normal cycle and dry normally. Yep, just like normal :)

Um, Cody and Patches are getting rather "hefty" for their huts. :) I guess I am doing my job?

Yes indeed! I put fresh huts in the cage just now and they went crazy. I always love watching them popcorn after getting fresh huts! Then I noticed how big they have gotten!
