I am going to the store today to get bedding. There doesnt seem to be a huge selection and i usually get care fresh ultra. This week the nautikins have decided they want their carefresh everywhere but in the litter boxes (go figure). What else can I use that is safe, but wont be as desirable or easy for them to move about. I know about the pine and stuff but I did see litter for ferrets and other small animals but I wasnt sure about it.
any suggestions? I dont mind sticking with the carefresh, its just I seem to be wasting alot of it when I clean the cage during the day, and I remember reading a thread while ago about someone switching to something else for the same reason.
thanks jodi

do you mean what you can put in the litter box?

i suggest just a peace of newspaper ore sum? i think it's the easiest because you can just take it out when it becomes ''dirty'' lol.

yes thats what i mean...i was using the carefresh in the litter box just cause thats what they were used to peeing and pooing in from their last cage. I never thought about plain old newspaper! ha i just wanted to make sure there wasnt anything else out there i should not use
thanx
of course theyll probably remove that too eventually lol

I got some of the YN, (for ferrets is all they had). It seems to be working well. But i have seen tiny pieces chewed up everywhere. Do you think they would actually eat it? Or are they just playing with it cause its something new?

Shouldn't eat it. May gnaw on it a bit...

Sometimes I think my boys are chewing on it, but I think it just looks that way when it breaks.

yea, thats what I figured. The tray in my FN was literally covered with tiny broken pieces of it everywhere, but today there was barely any mess. I think they were just playing with it since it was something new. Thanks for the suggestion:)
