    Default Temporary Shelf Material

    I read somewhere here about a material thatís heavier than cardboard, but that can still be cut with scissors (I think??),

    Until I can get my husband to make me some from wood, or buy the metal ones, does anyone know the name of this stuff ?? I want to be sure itís not toxic ; kind of sensitive about that word right now

    But I need something temporary to replace the destroyed plastic ones. And Iíve learned (too late for these) how to wrap them well so this stuff will last awhile, hopefullyÖ

    I'm not sure of something like that, only thing I can think is chip board or particularl board and both are a no go in my opinion.
    I'd just use the real deal 'SAFE WOOD' 👍

    I guess we can use the tiles until get the metal ones ordered, or get husband busy, whichever happens first

    I wouldnít use anything but untreated wood or metal. Anything that can be cut with scissors can easily be cut with a squirrels teeth. Any of the MDF or particle board products are held together with some type of glue. Who knows if that glue is toxic? Iíd use either metal or plain untreated pine for shelving.

    I dont have a good solution for a temporary fix, but I highly recommend the metal pans. They are easy to clean and 100%chew proof (well of course lol).
    One of my rehabs I think it was actually Tiger.......chewed through the pillow cases and blankets to destroy the plastic liners.
    You will love the pans and because of their depth there is less mess around the cage as an added bonus.
