I'm thinking I will need to set up an ex pen in my living room for them to be in the hot months. Their room they currently have is getting warm fast. They use to be more free roam and move themselves to cooler areas. But with Jerseys poor litter habits, I can't keep up with cleaning if I let them roam. Nor can I allow them to have the whole room 24/7 because the flooring will be destroyed. They will get time out of the pen of course and I allow them to go outside most days when suitable.
To put on the base of the pen, Ive been considering in investing in some incontinence bedding materials made for humans. Or similar thing made for pets. Vet Bed maybe?
Under that I would probably use vinyl or some other waterproof floor protector. Jersey and Rumbal don't really chew fabrics, especially when kept flat.
Has anyone done this before?
Or am I better off making something up myself, like sewing several layers of fleece together?
I need a lot of absorbency. Currently the pee runs on the tile and they track thru it and it's a constant battle to keep it cleaned.
I know the pen will get as messy as their current set up and I need to treat this as if Im setting it up for incontinent rabbits.
I'd love to hear (or see) what others have done.
