      Hey all! My buns have had the same cage setup for 6 years, but we are moving and their xpen will now be in a room with a hardwood floor vs a carpeted floor (their play area will still be carpeted).  They already have a carpet pad underneath their cage setup which will be coming with us, but we want to add extra padding  to compensate for the new hardwood floor bottom. I was planning on just doing that with fleece blankets because they’re easy to clean and we know our buns like them – and I had always assumed that when people said “fleece liner” they just meant “fleece blankets,” but as I was hunting for a fleece big enough, it’s become clear to me that there is actually a key difference that I am missing… can someone enlighten me? Not sure if this matters, but they rarely have accidents outside their litterbox, so I’m not worried about needing to absorb stray pee. Thanks!!

      TL;DR: What makes something a liner vs just a fleece that you line a cage with? Also if you know of any fleece liners big enough for xpens, I welcome any suggestions!

      My understanding is liner is simply a word people use to denote something that’s purpose is to line something, like flooring. I don’t think it really denotes anything beyond that. I think it’s a buzz word. You can use a blanket to line something.

      I wonder if the liners sold as cage liners (like for guinea pigs) might be double layered to give them more structure?

      I usually just buy fleece fabric by the yard and cut it to the size I need. If you want one large single piece, I would just search for a fleece blanket sized for a queen sized bed (but that would prob cost more).

      I’ve seen people start to use these blankets called “whelping mats” for bunnies. They are blankets with 1 side that’s water proof, meant for puppies. There are also “picnic blankets” that usually have 1 side fleece and 1 side nylon that also seem like they could be nice for bunnies (assuming your bunnies don’t chew).

      My understanding is that a liner is specifically made with an absorbent layer in between outer layers of fleece. Very common in the guinea pig world.

      Personally I just use plain fleece fabric and just fold it in half so it’s double layered.
