    hi
    im building a cage for my degu's and was wondering if anyone knew any safe, wipeable paint i could use. i cant't find anywhere that does animal safe paint but my friend told me that i can use child friendly paint that people use to paint baby toys, that their babies will chew.
    thanks :)

    The cage im building is 5 ft by 3 ft so i cant really buy it in pine because it would cost a fortune. So someone told me that they bulid there cage for their chins and goo's out of mdf then paint it with safe paint then put mesh over the sides, this way they cant chew it and its wipeable.
