I use Yesterday's News for my boys. Don't buy the small animal brand--buy the kitty litter kind. I get it at the grocery store for less than $6 for a bag and it lasts me maybe two months or more. I always make sure to freeze it for a couple of days before using it, just to make sure they don't get mites.

Cell Sorb by FAR!! I got a 40lb bag for I think $30 online. Usually only sold in feed stores but according to the site, some petsmarts sell it too. Its like YN but waaay better. I have 6 rats and I'm now back to changing a cage weekly.

If you do go with YN, just get it for cats. Its cheaper and the same thing pretty much.

Just the other day I bought a 30lb bag of "GOOD MEWS" 'cat' litter pellets. But on the back it says that it produces no dust, etc etc.... and is safe for cats, dogs, all reptiles and small mammals. For about $8.

So I think it is an off-brand of Yesterday's News. Just recycled newspaper stuffs.

I hope I made the right and safest choice. *fingers crossed*

It looked like Yesterday's News to me, and the price was good. Still need to figure out how often the cages will need to be cleaned, with this new stuff. But safety was primary concern.
