Good writeup and good guide. It's stuff like this that keeps SCP-100-J in check.

This is good and you should feel good. I think there's one other good reason to redact things in the containment procedures: if it's a duty that a single person is responsible for, and which demands a higher level of classification than the remaining procedures. You could potentially do something like 'PROTOCOL 555-GRAPEFRUIT' to abstract it out, but something like a human-resources protocol (we don't want anyone exposed to XXXXX) might be appropriate to black-box censor.
I'm not sure if everything here really falls under the umbrella of containment procedures, and I've found containment procedures to be one of the more finicky things in an article, but the advice in this guide is quite good, and presented in a nice, easy to understand manner. Good job.
As someone who has a few partially-written SCPs sitting on my hard drive, this actually has helped me work out a few kinks in then, namely the containment procedures. While some may view this as "well yeah, obviously", I think it states a lot of great information, and I'm sure it'll help a ton of people. Great job!
What are the standards for animalistic + safe SCPs in regards to simplistic comfort items?
Like a hide for reptiles or a bed for cats/dogs?
IMO, it depends on the animal.
Most Safe-class animals (like Josie) are provided with comforts so long as they do not violate the containment of the object-in-question or of other objects.
When it comes to deciding to include comfort items, the enforcement of the SCP and the safety of the containment staff should come first.
Gotcha, so as long as the comfort item is cheap and couldn't cause harm to the staff it should be good?
Enh. This is a pretty poor guide. More of an essay, since it's all personal opinion.

*shrug* Your call.
That said, if one was to rid of all the guides which are a personal opinion, the only stuff that'd remain in supplemental guides would be About the SCP Foundation, Tag Guide, Licensing Guide, Technical Words and Expert Witnesses.

I saw this line and I could not stop laughing at this. I usually don't tell jokes a lot or genuinely laugh at people's jokes. But the fact that three words in a sentence could make me laugh so hard is beyond me.
I'm old enough to know better, but young enough to do it anyway.

Love your enemies. It makes them so damned mad.
Can we actually "know" the universe? My God, it's hard enough finding your way around in Chinatown.
