regular towels or multiple folds of paper towels with no litter box.

Hi Mike, Sukie and all - Try Depends or a disposable diaper for post-op
ferrets not strong enough for litter box. Either absorb very well and this
super absorbancy helps keep the surture line clean - also soft for ferret to
"wipe" when finished.
