    The little men are growing up, and as their hair is getting longer, their bottoms are getting muckier. So it was time for their first bath, and boy, they were no impressed!

    These pics were pre-bath. Trying out their clean cage, we tried them on fleeces for the first time, and it seems to be suiting them quite well.

    Dandelion wouldn't sit still anymore so I never got an after shot of him sadly! But they smell gorgeous now :)

    Now into their clean cage

    They look so well behaved and very fluffy after their bath :001_wub:

    How does it work out having fleeces in their cage? Do they need washing regularly or can you keep them in there a while?

    Well they've been on fleece for about 10 days now, and we've found we need to change them every three days. I was surprised as I always thought fleece would smell but it really doesn't.

    Oh Bless! They look so sweet (and p1ssed!) :laugh:

    I would never have thought of fleeces for GPs - brilliant idea.

    It's certainly working out cheaper than using hay!
