I use a plastic ladle to pick up poops in the far back corner of the cage, and I love my rubber brush to get hay and hair off the fleece. This Little Piggie Marketplace sells a set of rubber brushes that I use every day.
I am going out to buy fleece after work in hopes if I wash it over and over ALL NIGHT they'll have a cosy home ready by the time we get them here.
I am thinking I'll add about 6 inches (3 inches per side) to the fleece for tucking and shrinkage? (I don't expect much shrinkage.) I want to make sure I get the amount right.
And to start, unless there's an insane sale, I'll just be getting enough for 2 or 3 changes, does that sound right?
Should I budget for double layers of fleece, or will single layer be enough (with towels and/or puppy pads underneath)?
(I have to add this. After working all morning on the cage--which looks AWESOME--my sweet husband said in response to my congratulations, "I just wish we'd done this for Lazer" (wee piggie boy who died last week). He's such a marshmallow, my guy. :-)

How high is your coroplast? if it' 4 inches on each side you need 8 inches if you are going to clip it on both sides.
I double my fleece witih thick tri layers of towels under. Not sure if that's needed or not, just the way I do it.
