    And I have a question. I have them on paper towel now, but when should I change to pine shavings? Is there a generally accepted rule to follow? Thanks!

    I usually last to about a week with paper towel....then they are just too poopy. Paper towel is so much nicer because they don`t kick it in their water or feeder.
