Keeping a little bit and finding someone who wants it sounds like a good idea, thanks.
I don't know how much you've got Beri, but I'd probably buy it from you! :lol:

Re: Vetbed

I like this stuff for poorly animals. It stays in place, keeps them warm and pee goes straight through it so they stay dry. :D

Re: Levels for an Explorer? Any suggestions?
