I think you have to wash/dry, but sometimes I cheat and wash/wash/dry, wash/wash/dry.

I finally got pictures of my fleece! Took me long enough!

Here's the left side of the cage. You can see the big green bottom fleece cliped to the sides of the cage. The whole thing is covered in pads because I've started swapping out the dirty ones daily- it really lets me clean the cage 7 days apart.

The draped fleece is because the boys are currently having some kind of hormone war. Max is now full blown adolecent and he's stiring the pot- no houses for us!

This picture shows the right side of the house. The red fringe is hiding their sleeping area. The fringe is a big hit!

The fringe is a great idea! I'm definitely going to be trying that in my cage!

Well.

Boyfriend is over and he has just told me that the cage fleeces "hurt his eyes" they clash with one another so much.

Apparently, my fleece decorating skills suck and he thinks I should have a much more "manly" cage for the boys. The current fleeces are either girly or too babyish, says he.

*pfft* What does he know, huh? This from the man who won't even put up curtains!

Just tell him you like Modern Art and all the bright colors. So, is bf going to go out and buy all new fleece, wash it, then put it in the cage so his eyes don't bother him?

Haha, I think it's the first one fey-lin. I don't actually know since I got it out of a fantasy book when I was about...12. It's been my online name ever since!

I did suggest that boyfriend go out and buy the nice manly new fleece himself. He was all into it, untill I told him that it's $13.99 a yard!

I have so many remnants because I just buy whatever scraps are left over for $2 a yard.

It is kind of clashing, though, with the fish print, pale pink, bright yellow, and the green school print.....

Feylin - he sounds like Kevin. We now have 'manly' blue flames for our boys. Maybe for the holidays you can get 'him' some of his favorite sports team's fleece - Wrap it for him - give it to the pigs. Perfect!

Ha Feylin, my cages look like that too. I have odds and ends of scraps everywhere. Nothing matches, but one day I will get on the ball and make them look nice and neat. My closet is full of fleece, i'm talking probably like 10 full bolts, I should be able to make the cages match you would think, hehe.

This is my current arrangement for Archie and Oscar. Im not quiet sure that it is "manly" enough for them, but it matches the room and I thought it was pretty anyway. Everything that is made out of fabric was sewn by hand. They have two sets-- a dark blue set and this green set.

They hay Box/ kicthen area where Oscar spends most of his time at. It has a batting and fleece pad underneath as part of the kitchen area.

The bedroom. Im in the process of replacing the waffle blocks houses with two fleece houses.

Image

The play area. I had to construct a cloth tunnel for Archie since he his a bit too large for any other commercial tunnel.

The actual fleece bottom is one large pad. I sewed it all together in one unit for easy cleaning. The bottom layer is grey fleece, the middle is a twin size matress protector and the top is also fleece. So far it has worked wonders for me.

Amy I love your fleece set up! It's manly enough I think. I've had the same problem with my pigs being too large for some things. Great set up!

Purple Peep and PA- I love the bright, cheery colors. Happy colors=Happy pigs!

I'm so jealous! I bought 3 sets of fleece but when I tried to use it Sierra started her smelly mushy poop troubles...so the fleece was a nightmare!

I hate the pine...it gets stuck in Cassanova's manly area too easily...but makes removing mushy poop a breeze...I hope that we can switch to fleece some day.

*sigh*

I've started using fleece in one of my personal cages--I'll have to take some pictures. I made really crappy cage blankets (my darn sewing machine kept messing up--something to do with the bobbin and tension) out of fleece and old mattress pads.
