Oh...LOL!
I was so tired last night when I posted,I didin't know!

I wish they would too.
I have told sooo many people not to use it and I hate the ignorant people who are like "well why is it sold in a pet store if it is harmful?"...GAHHHH! Some people just don't get it.

I have used it before.It is safe,but around here it is HARD to find and when you can find it,it is a little expensive.I liked it though when I had it.

I hate that even the petstores sell it as a good bedding for small animals,, quick question on the pine,, I give my gerbil hunks of 2X4 which I recently found out to be pine,, is this a bad idea,, I have heard that since its not shredded its fine,, whats your opinion??

My rats live in a homemade cage made of 2 by 4s. I did not know they are pine. Is this harmful? They don't seem bothered and I use aspen bedding.

I personally don't like companies (especially advertising them) that make huge profits on pet owners. But that is just my opinion.

One solution that I prefer is to find a local wood worker that can provide you with good quality and fresh wood shavings, that are pure and without any contamination.
