I have used carefresh for many years in all kinds of animals cages. I have had prairie dogs in it, mice, rats, guinea pigs, rabbits, even lizards once in a while. I would rather that because it is recycled. I'm not killing more trees and because you dont know what the shavings are treated with I dont find them as safe. Even if it is from a tree that isnt known to cause respiratory problems, I believe they are supposed to treat the wood with chemicals to kill any mildew, mold, or insects. Has anyone else heard this?

I prefer it for rats. They can't have most bedding because it causes respiratory problems, so it is a really good one to use.

I alternate between Breeders Choice cat litter and kiln dried pine shavings

Finally seen carefresh bedding over here...AU$15 for a small bag....sorry but that price is just silly for the amount you get...i spose its ok if you only have 1 cage and not 7

We use only care fresh for our rabbits' litter boxes and also in the bottom of the ratty cage. For us it's been wonderful at limiting our allergic reactions as well as easy cleaning. (we recently graduated to a shop vac for quick clean litter area cleanups We love the stuff.

I would go a step further and ask what folks think of the colored varieties? Daughter saw it today and of course desided she needs blue to match her room! LOL But my first thought is one of caution of unnecessary dyes? Would/could the dyes cause a reaction in our bunnies or ratties?

I know a few people who use the colored ones and haven't had any problems.However there is no difference really then the regular stuff,it is only for show.

The white stuff looks really dirty and grey/yellow after a day or so!!!

Thanks Lisa! I suppose I will be buying the blue version for my daughter next time then. I feel better after hearing that someone's used it with no problems.

Care Fresh is the only bedding I use! It's soft, and I can get it in big bags for a cheap price. Only problem is, it tends to be dusty and makes my rats sneeze!
