    Hi, I'm thinking of using fleece as bedding on the main tray instead of loose bedding as they put it out. they do push much out, and it doesn't smell more than it should work for two rats. But as they HATE the hover, I want to minimise how often I have to use it near them. As I have loose...

    How do you guys keep your rats from climbing under the cage liners or dragging the entire piece of fleece into their hide? My sweet girls are absolute fiends when it comes to nesting, and no matter how much nesting material I provide, they always want to rearrange their liners. I've been...
