I tried carefresh as bedding. It stunk after a few days. I just use it for the litter box now. crushed walnut shells (which you can find in the bird or reptile isle) is what I use now and I have heard great things about it. Including, it absorbs urine and smell very well and you only have to completely change it once a month, with daily pellet scooping and replacing damp bedding with dry. Hope I helped! :wink:
I used to use carefresh, never tried the pink kind.
I use towels now and change them every other day or so, but my boys are potty trained so sometimes its changed ever 2 days. Towels by far have been the best thing, for me at least, and the boys seem to enjoy burrowing in it and tossing it around.
My sister keeps her hamster on a mixture of blue and white carefresh and I think her hamster is actually healthier now than before, simply because there is less dust. I'm thinking of buying some for Betty just for that reason!
I have been interested on the colored carefresh also. I have never heard of any problems with the colored carefresh. please let me kno of any future problems as i am young and trying to learn alot. good luck -Josh
