These mats are indispensable to me and my birds. I use them in many different ways : I have created a little shelter in the sleeping area of the cage for when they go to sleep or simply just want some alone time, without it being too 'nesty'. They have a semi secluded area on top of the playtopsk of their cages also. One of my quakers weaves his leather strips and paper straws in the holes of the mat, and it keeps him busy for hours, all the while fulfilling the natural 'weaving' tendencies of his species. They all enjoy chewing on them and I also dangle toys from them. I buy several so I can just switch them out by replacing with a new one while washing and letting them dry out in the sun to dry.
