I noticed on some of the pictures you guys have posted that you may use blankets to cover the floor and (if potty trained) you have bedding as their litter. What kind of fabric you use for the floor for that blanket?
haha I'm not going to use towels. Was curious about what fabric is the best when it comes to it. Considering the fact that I have two males who will end up marking territory every week I clean it. Didn't want a fabric that would horde the smell or w/e.
The only danger is that they may chew towels, and then they have places they can get stuck. If you use them you have to always check them to make sure their safe. I prefer fleece, it's a little more expensive but lasts much longer.
Mine did chew one of the towels, but only until they could get underneath it. To prevent further chewing, I just leave a little bit of room in one of the corners for them to get underneath if they want to hang out under there. No more chewing! The towels I use for them don't really have the loop things most towels have. I got them at a garage sale for $.10 each, and they're really soft and nice. (Garage sales are wonderful places to find rattie stuff for even cheaper than dollar/thrift stores!)
Has anyone tried making slip covers out of the material of your choice to cover the shelves? My FN is on its way here and I was thinking about making them with zippers around the outside so that there is no way to get under the fabric... I would also make them quite snug.
A definite downside would be that I couldn't hang things from the bottom of the shelves...
You could still hang stuff, if you make it to fit the plastic pan and not the shelf itself. That actually sounds like a really good idea. If you do that, let us know how it works! I might try that when I get my FN ^_^
