I picked up a smooth tile to use as a dry erase board, then decided to use it instead for the ferret cage. Although I have a meatloaf pan in the cage for a litter box, I put the tile in the corner where the ferret sometimes goes, and it is so easy to clean up. It is better than using a paper towel, because you just pop it out, wipe it off, then pop it back into the cage.
Tiles are also a good paper weight and they are fun to use as dry erase boards. If using as a dry erase board, be sure to use the smooth shiny kind and not the rough surface kind.

When I had ferrets I used a low-sided plastic storage container the same width as the short side of the cage. That stopped them from backing up into one of those corners to do their business as the little guys frequently will do. I put their food and water in the other corners keeping them safe and clean!
I have an oak side table that I use between two chairs. I purchased a large 18" tile and use it like a large coaster! It's pretty, compliments the oak, and I don't have to fuss at my hubby about where he puts a beverage!
