    ok so I was looking at a article type thing on using usual blankets and they had a link and so I was wondering if thease ones are safe. I have been googling moving blankets and I did not find thease until now, and I think they seem to be what everyone uses. On the site thing they mentioned using towels which I don’t really agree with for safety reasons, but other than that I found it helpful. Here is link to blanket: https://www.uhaul.com/MovingSupplies/Packing-Supplies/Furniture-Pad/?id=2670
    And if you are interested in the article: http://ratropolis.blogspot.com/2013/10/using-u-haul-furniture-pads-with-rat.html
    And I know I made a thread on this, but can you cut these blankets?? Which Jorats did reply to, but she said she was unsure. If these ones are the good ones to use I think they look safe to cut and in the tutorial on the article it seemed like they cut the blankets, I think I was confused because I was looking at the wrong thing.:rolleyes:

    Edit here is a link to the same looking ones on amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Textile-Movi...ocphy=9028740&hvtargid=pla-350571401031&psc=1 if the first ones safe I don’t know why thease wouldn’t be. Although there are some quite bad reviews one saying it smelled chemically and actualy fell apart in the washer and dryer.

    And another link (sorry) https://www.amazon.com/Sure-Max-Mov...ncoding=UTF8&refRID=41YMPV5PPC77C4WE12V3&th=1
    I was looking at thease earlier, but I think in the reviews they mentioned them actualy being water proof so I do t know how well they would work.

    If I get rats I will for sure wait to buy in bulk until ikon which ones work...
    Sorry for a long post

    no idea, but you can buy cotton baby quilts second hand at used clothing stores like Value Village (not a value and make sure all items are washed well re insects/bedbugs/fluid contamination etc) and they might be less expensive

    I did a quick google search and I don't think they can be cut, also in some areas, they warn against washing it too often. I don't think I would get those. I would just still to either towels. A while ago, I use to use bathroom mats in my cages, the kind without a backing.
