Hi guys, yet another topic by me (sorry)!

I noticed that in a lot of your 'meet my rat' pictures, that your cages are lined with carpet or material. The man in the pet shop gave me 'megasorb' (spelling?), and I naturally lined the bottom of the cage with it. On the top level (my cage has a shelf level), I put soft shredded paper bedding.

I was wondering whether I was right or wrong to line the whole lower level with this 'megasorb' stuff, would material not get dirty/smelly?

In one particular picture I noticed there was a tupperware type box filled with what looked like this megasord material, that type of thing.

I'd appreciate feedback :D

my cages are lined with kitty litter, the paper variety, which the ratties take great delight in tossing out of the bottom of their cages (they know how much i love vacuuming... NOT!!) for bedding i give them old towels that i buy at one of the local op-shops for a couple bux each, some fleece squares and either newspaper or lined school paper for them to shred. the towels i toss when they are sufficiently destroyed (at least one per cage per week), the paper gets tossed at the same time, and the fleece squares i just throw in the wash with my clothes. so far, they havent complained or asked for something better/different...

I do mostly the same thing, My guys live on towel and old shirts. I wash everything every 5 to 6 days. I clean their cages every 2 days but wash a little less than that :p. I love my towel because you wouldn't even know I have rats if they didn't come into their cages and say hello lol.
