Lots of people use rabbit pellets as a cheap alternative to Yesterday's News. Just be prepared for it to crumble to dust and you had better like the smell. L(

I lucked out and found a YN knockoff at PetValu in Canada.

We use it in our litter boxes. I, personally, love it, as I found some stuff in my YN that certainly didn't belong there and can't support the company on a personal level. You do have to like the scent of alfalfa, though. ;)

If they nibble on it, it won't hurt them. Rats *can* eat alfalfa, they just don't get any thing from it and really don't like it much. Most rats will take a nibble and be done with thinking it's food. :)

I use rabbit pellets for both of my cages---I love the rabbit pellets because they are so much easier to use and a lot cheaper too.

Are you talking about rabbit pellets... as in rabbit food? Isn't that stuff kind of smelly and messy to use for bedding? Just curious.

Cool. I may have to try that. I switched from Care Fresh to fleece, because the Care Fresh made them sneeze so much. The fleece works well, but it has to be changed too often, so I was thinking about switching to aspen... but maybe I'll give the rabbit pellets a try.
