Why are so many pet owners choosing fleece cage liners?

Are you tired of the cost and environmental impact of non-reusable bedding, along with the odour and bacteria it creates? Many small pet owners have been seeking a better alternative. That's where Teacup Nethies' Absorbent Fleece Cage Liners come in, offering the following benefits:

  1. Simplicity
  2. Time-efficient cleaning process.
  3. Better for your pets' overall health.
  4. Fun and funky designs.
  5. Environmentally friendly.
  6. Reusable, saving you money.
  7. Reduced odour

Our Handmade Custom Fleece Cage Liners

Say goodbye to smelly wood shavings or hay forever! Say hello to Teacup Nethies' fleece cage liners. We designed our cage liners with two layers of polar fleece and one layer of 5mm thick non-toxic absorbent material, ensuring that your guinea pig, rabbit, or rodent's cage remains dry and comfortable. Teacup Nethies' liners actively wick moisture away from the fleece and transfer it to the absorbent core, effectively minimizing unpleasant odours. With these liners, you can bid farewell to the hassle of cleaning out smelly wood shavings or hay.

Besides their practical benefits, our fleece liners also add a fun, yet stylish element to your small pet's living space. You can choose from a range of playful and funky patterns/colours that match your home's decor or just simply reflect your pet's personality.

Super Absorbent Core - Our non-toxic absorbent layer is highly absorbent. It absorbs moisture away from the fleece layer to keep the fleece and small animal’s feet dry. The dryness minimises the chance of Bumble Foot / Sore Hocks (Ulcerative pododermatitis) and Urine Burn/Scald. Which can be life-threatening for small animals. 

Lastly, the liners are all handmade with love and care by me on the Mid North Coast (NSW) of Australia.

Note: They are suitable for guinea pigs, rabbits, ferrets, rats, and even dogs and cat pens.

Fleece Design & Choices

The patterns and colours we stock are lots more fun and funky than your traditional boring old wood shavings and newspaper. On top of that, we also have other products that you can mix and match to create a theme or style for your setup. Some of these products include our Potty Pads, Cuddle Sacks, Cosy Beds, and hides. Which all make a great addition to any setup. 

Save Money in the Long Run: Consider the Cost

The upfront cost may look daunting, but our fleece liners are reusable and made from quality materials by Elise (the owner and an experienced seamstress) who takes pride in her work and is dedicated to producing the high-quality products that we are known for and that our customers expect. Which means our liners last for a long time, which for many customers, is often years. However, this depends on your pet and the care you put into them. Our liners can save you a lot of your hard earned money in the long run, and the time and effort running to and from pet stores.

How to clean your liner

I spot clean the cage every day or second daily if you wish. Using a handheld vacuum or dustpan and brush picking up any little mess that has missed the litter tray, or rolling it up and shacking outside and if not wet I’ll flip it over so the other side used before washing. Change and wash the liners 5-7 days, depending on how many pets you have. Also, if toilet trained, they last longer.

How to care for your fleece cage liner

They will last hundreds of washes if used correctly. More than a year ago.

Please refrain from using softeners and dryer sheets, as this will stop them from wicking as they should. The idea is to let the liquid pass through the fleece to the absorbent core in the middle. The fleece stays dry. YOU MUST wash before it will wick ( around 3 times). Machine washable on cool gentle wash and dryer friendly on a cool setting, but we recommend line drying in the shade to extend the life of the liner. REMEMBER MUST wash the liner before use.

Tip: Using a Potty Pad in high-traffic areas like toilet tray, water bottle. This is a handmade product, so pattern placement will vary and movement in the fabric. All caution is taken to quality check before shipping.

    I’ve purchased many fleece liners as well as cuddle sacks, not only for my own guinea pigs but also as gifts for fellow guinea pig families. The quality of these products is exceptional, featuring beautiful designs, and they even come with care instructions to ensure their longevity. I highly recommend them.

    I am v ery pleased with the quality of this liner and know my piggies will be very comfy on it. Just one little thing though if I may – on the c olour chart I thought I ordered pale pink and green. But the liner is very bright. Still lovely though. Thanks a lot. Ros

    • Elise Norton (store manager)

      Hi Rosalie,
      Thankyou for your kind words.
      Regarding the colours in your order you put pink and green. However I believe you may have been wanting the baby pink as this is a pale pink? As the normal pink is bright.

      But I’m glad you still find the colour lovely 🥰
      – Elise

    We really love these liners. We have a very sick guinea pig and need to keep it in a dust-free and clean environment. The liners are perfect! We need to wash them more often than indicated on the website, but this is likely due to the fact that our guinea pig is on medication that makes it pee more often than normal.

They material is very soft and my cage looks adorable now and I think my Guinea Pigs are a lot happier with having cage liners. It’s very aesthetically pleasing and easy to clean. It’s definitely worth the wait and the money. I might get some more at some point.
