hi, is there any suggestions on what is the best type of litter to keep rats on.

as amonia created by the rats urine causes major respiratory problems and therefore a bedding is needed that a) absorbs the amonia and stops the smell and b) is dust free.

any suggestions???

i use aspen. my ratties love it. my two girls push it all inside there hideout and make 3-4 inch high bed out of it, lol. it works great and is relatively cheap.

I buy corn cob bedding at Wal-mart, it is $3 for a large bag. I change the litter in my cage 1-2 times a week and it lasts at least a month per bag. You can also buy the same size bag of Organic corn cob bedding at Petco for $7-8 I think.
I bought the Petco kind because it has a resealable bag and I refill it with the wal-mart kind to keep it fresh.
you clean the cages 1-2 times a week? i dont have to clean mine more than once a week or once every 2 weeks....depending on the size of the cage. why do you have to clean them that often?
oh, yesterday's news.....i thought u were talking about the clay cat litter people use in a cat's litterbox.
