Bedding, branches, and litter

More questions...

What brand/type of bedding do you like?

What do you put in the litter pan?

We have ash & birch trees - are the branches ok for bunnies for a chew toy? What about the bark from eucylptus trees?

Thank you!

I dont use bedding, because Smudge is litter box trained. His cage has a rug in half of it, and the other half is a vynil runner (those clear mats with spiky things on the bottom that you put on carpet) cause its super easy to clean.
In his litter box I use compressed sawdust pellets, and they work REALLY well. I buy massive bags of it in the horse section at Fleet Farm.
I know apple tree branches are fine, but Im now sure about the others.

I don't use bedding either because my bunny uses the litter box. In his litter box I use a product called "Yesterday's News" These are small recycled paper pellets. I place some thin strips of paper in the litter box too - he likes to chew a little as he does his business
I have cardboard in about half of the cage.
I tried the plastic mat that Jess was talking about but he had a fit with it in his cage. I'm still trying to find something else.
I read apple branches are fine - I don't have apple trees so I buy the small apply chew sticks.
