Our house is all tile, and the loud noises from the hard plastic crate pan was driving us crazy. The only solution was putting a bed in the crate, but Joey destroyed anything that got in there. One morning I bought a gorilla "chew resistant" bed and it was full of holes by lunch. I got the kuranda crate bed and it worked perfectly! After almost a year it is still intact. Joey chews on the supports, but hasn't been able to do anything more than some cosmetic scratches. If he gets through the support, its replaced free! You can't beat that. He also loves the bed and seems to be very comfortable.
