It is fine for piggies but hard on their feet so it cannot be the bedding for the main area. But as kitchen bedding, it should do fine?
I have a video of my pigs doing circle. Not sure if I should post them here or start a new thread.
Here is my latest cage. I can't stop modifying their cage.
Oreo, Cookie and Rocky (from left to right):
Left side loft:
It is on the floor (which I don't like but we would have to build some type of table as the cages are L shaped and huge, but that is a future project), it is L shaped, the 2 long sides are 4 grids and the short sides are 2 grids. I hope that explains it well enough. When I get home I plan on taking and posting pics.
They were so happy when I put them in there! Butterfinger's was doing zoomies! I haven't seen him do that in a long time. Cupcake just wanted to eat hay LOL.
Only problem with it though, except for the table thing, is that it butts up flush to my other L shaped cage for my group of 3 females. I didn't think to measure the room before I set up the cage, luckily it fit! Butterfinger's is an unaltered male, Cupcake is a spayed female who doens't like anyone but Butterfinger's. The 3 girls have a very dominant female who is known to fight. Right now I have the joining sides with cardboard so they can't see each other, and I have grids on the top of it on that side so Mr. Butterfinger's cannot climb the grids and have fun with the other females. I've never seen him climb before but I've heard of it happening.
I'm just so happy to have them in a super cage! One day I will figure out and get the energy to do 2nd levels on all the cages... One day...
Just a question.. do you guys change the fleece every day? How often do you change it?
1/3 of my 2 guinea pigs cage is carefresh and the other 2/3 is old beach towels and face clothes. They pee SO MUCH. How do you guys keep up with it? ^^;

Just wash the fleece 3 times with an unscented detergant without any fabric softener. Then put over the towels and you're good to go. I usually wash the towels with the fleece too, for at least one load. What you're doing is breaking down the water barrier on the fleece so the urine can soak through to the towels underneath.
