: I have always used a sock for a bed for Roanie, and it has always been great. But just last night I went to go feed her and she had a thread wrapped tightly around her hand, with one finger particularly enlarged, red, and very sore. I immediatley cut the sock and freed her, but this is just a warning not to use socks as beds. She is okay now, but if she was there another few hours who knows what could have happened.

You're lucky. There have been many warning over the past
several years about just this subject. Not only socks but
anything with a loose weave. I have polar fleece pouches in
the cages but they all perfer their nest boxes full of
white paper towel.
