So today I finally went out and got some fleece to switch to fleece bedding so I can save money and just wash them instead of throwing the paper bedding away and replacing it. Well anyways since I put it into the cage my rat is acting strange. He seems to avoid it by either climbing up his cage or going into the hammock. He'll even take his food into the hammock to avoid walking on the fleece. I thought fleece is really safe for rats and yes its 100% fleece. Is it possible he allergic to it and it bothers his feet? Or is he just not use to it? I would hate to have switch back to paper I hate that paper bedding.
