Default Hemp mats

Just wanted to pass on that the Kerbl one is rubbish! Far too moulty and hairy and I don't think it's suitable because of that. The first one I had was the Hugro one from Zooplus and that's really good, so I'm getting another one.

So if anyone else gets a hemp mat, get the Hugro one (which is dense and doesn't moult everywhere), not the rubbish Kerbl one!

Sound advice as always Serendipity. Not something I have ever bought myself but I can see the temptation as they can be made into shelf liners or walkways/low slung hammocks. x

Charlie has a circle of it lining his rat sputnik and loves it, as it makes it cosy. I just cut a piece for the shelf in his new cage as well. Thinking about the hammock idea but it would probably need metal ring reinforcements so it didn't tear.

I've only used the Hugro ones & they are good, cheaper at Ratrations than zooplus I think.

Yes those are nice! Softer than the grass hammocks. I got one recently but it had a funny smell, so I put it through the washing machine and it started falling apart lol. So maybe I'll get another one some time. I might just be allergic to grass mats or something! But the hyacinth tube is the same stuff and that doesn't bother me, so maybe I just got a slightly mouldy one lol. Better luck next time.
