Interesting

This is more or less your average bedding. My only problem with it is it has always felt itchy when I first put it in the cage.
I would recommend this to a friend!

Big Mistake

When I first opened it, it had a strong scent that immediately made me think of a new house. It was a strong, overpowering scent. I still went on to put this in 1 of 2 bin cages my Syrian lives in, which turned out to be a big mistake. I should have had red flags when I couldn't find specific a wood type in the description, other than "kiln-dried shaving." My Syrian absolutely refused to go in the bin cage with this bedding and decided to sleep in his puzzle playground so I immediately went to the store to replace it the same night I put it in.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

One week into using this product and the guinea pig seems quite happy. It is able to throw some out of the cage when it is running around. true to the reviews, there is little or no odor. See how the first cage cleaning goes. Product works fine. I would recommend it to friends.

I use this as a base in my Guinea pig cages. I then top it with Carefresh Natural and Carefresh Ultra.
I would recommend this to a friend!

My hamster loves this

My hamster loves this bedding. She loves to play with it and separate the shavings from the blue bedding. She spends hours at night moving it around, she really likes the loose pieces instead of compacted bedding.
I would recommend this to a friend!

Never Again

My robo hamsters HATE this litter with a passion. They hate it so much that they would rather sleep in their dust bath than deal with this. They have had a lot different of bedding in the few months I have had them: First they had all sand ( play sand) and they seemed to like that, but after awhile it really started to stink (after a week). Then it was Carefresh confetti and they really loved that. But I wanted to try something different and they do not in any way like this and they are staring at me with sour faces and angry eyes. Sorry my girls never again. Two weeks back to confetti.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
