    Its official, I’m getting a bunny! I finally got my parents to agree and we ordered the nic cubes last night I am super excited. I had a question about litter, is aspen shavings safe? I have a giant bag because I have two hamsters, and I know that pine and cedar shavings are not safe for either animal, but aspen is safe for hamsters, so is it safe for bunnies too? If not, what litter do you guys use? The only experience I have is I volunteered at my local shelter and in the bunny room when we cleaned their litter boxes we just put newspaper in the bottom and filled it with hay, but it smelled really fast and always was nasty to clean, as it just went right through the newspaper. So any ideas on what to use as litter would be great!

    Congrats on being about to get a bunny!!

    Yes, aspen bedding is safe but I personally wouldn’t use it. I use wood stove pellets and they are great with keeping the smell down and they aren’t nearly as messy.

    Are the wood stove pellets the same at hard wood fuel pellets? Thats the only thing I can find at the store near me.

    You can buy aspen pellets, which would be less messy than the shavings. Aspen Supreme is one brand. That’s one of the litters that I use. It’s sold at Petco, and I assume some other places.

    If you buy wood stove pellets, make sure that they are the plain ones, with no accelerants. Those are very economical, only a few dollars for a 40 pound bag. You can use horse stall pellets. They also only cost a few dollars for a 40 pound bag. You can find them at Tractor Supply stores or feed stores. Here is the link from Tractor Supply – https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/product/tractor-supply-pine-pellet-stall-bedding-40-lb?rfk=1. Another brand of horse stall pellets is Equine Pine.

    Great, thank you so much! I’ll definitely look at the aspen pellets, and I’ll go check if somewhere near me sells the ones with no accelerates.
