Rats (and mice and most rodents) should not be kept on pine or cedar. Aspen wood chips are fine. Some people like Carefresh or a cat litter called Yesterday's news.

My boys are kept on fleece, but they usually try to pull it up to make a nice big comfy nest.

Pine is bad, yes. I'd switch to aspen, carefresh Ultra, or Yesterday's news ASAP.

I'm about the same as JennieLove. Fabric or bare solid floors and YN in the litterbox.

i just started using yesterdays news instead of aspen and i love it! i barely notice an oder now and i don't have to clean the cages as often. they also don't throw it out of the cage like the aspen, so their is less mess on the floor.
