Nibbles STINKS

any thing to make it better?

does anyone use yesterdays news for the bedding? does that control odor well?? or carefresh ultra, i have care fresh now but i can really really notice his smell. after a day and a half after fresh bedding

if i use yesterdays news i will get him soft stuff for in his hut.

what works best for the smell i dont want other people in my appartment to notice and complaine to our landlord.

I use Carefresh and never have any problems and i got two piggies...i change it once a week and it works great for me. I line the bottom of their home with newspaper then add the Carefresh on top.

Maybe you should use more bedding?? Maybe that would help??

I have three boys on fleece, and only clean them once a week, and they don't stink. Neither does my 1 boy/2 girl cage.

lol...the male species usually are smellier ...lol..usually . Im talking human species....

as for piggies i dont think it matters if it is a girl piggie or boy piggie as to who makes for a smellier cage.
maybe your just not used to having a piggies yet...but the cage shouldnt smell if its being cleaned properly???

No, male guinea pigs dont' spray. Females can spray urine, but males mark by rubbing their butt on the ground.

Piggies, stinky? I've never thought any type of rodent stinks but sometimes people that aren't used to them will say they smell. I don't think Twix stinks *sniffs his cage* Nope....but I dunno why he would stink....hmmmm, mystery to me but of course I'm new to piggies to so I dunno..Sorry...I'm crazy

i dont know i was pondering using fleese and trying to litter train nibbles i think he would do good with it if he was so freaked out when he gets out of his hiddy and someone moves. he poops like a little mad man though. piles piles everywhere. im going to clean the rat cage tonight and maybe for some reason its them.

He himself doesnt stink, and i always thought hamsters stunk but rats dont really. i think the humidity isnt helping

Humidity definitely doesn't help and I think when it's hotter, the odder is worse then normal. It's 74F here today WOOOT...I love it, it's so nice...suppose to be 77 toorrow.

A lot of people don't use fleece because it requires daily upkeep. I have to vacuum mine twice a day to keep it in decent shape with all the poops on it.

Also it's a pretty expensive "startup" cost.
