Re: Hair pulling advice needed

Are they doing anything else to each other - any pinning or scuffling or any other kind of fighting? I also wondered if this was happening when they do intensive power grooming because I've seen mine get a little bit carried away with grooming and Abiail gave Matilda a litle cut once.

Re: Carefresh vs Ecopetbed

I've goneback to carefresh. At the end of the day it's much easier for me to get hold of and I wasn't that impressed with the ecopetbed. Fond carefresh easier to clean out too! :P

Or you could tr emailing these guys http://acrorats.homestead.com/index.html to see if they've got a pink igloo.

I was kind of hoping fuzzbutts might have one since theyve got the pink sputnik but no such luck!
