    Hi guys! So I have always used a great affordable paper litter from walmart but they no longer carry it! I was just curious if what others use? I have tried using some others but did not love them as they did not absorb the scent as well and tended to stick to the litter pan more than the one I was previously using which is a bit annoying lol! Just wondering if anyone has one they really love!

    I use compressed pine pellets. If you can find them as horse stall bedding or wood stove pellets they are one of the most economical options. And they work really well at absorbing odors.

    I also use horse pine pellets. I get a 40lb bag for $6. It’s more absorbant and has better odor control than paper bedding.

    I also use the compressed pine pellets, super big fan of them!

    If you’re in the US you can find these as wood stove pellets at an Agway, or in normal hardware stores like Home Depot in the winter. Tractor supply sells them as horse stall pellets. I usually pick up 2 40lb bags for my single bun and they last us about 6 months

    I just simply place a sheet of news paper with a half sheet of a puppy pad. She uses one side so I turn it to the other side for a second use. Might or might not work for your bun as they do tend to get used to what they are used to.

    Wood pellets (hardwood fuel pellets)!

    CareFresh! I only use bedding in litter boxes for Magpie because her hutch has a vinyl plank floor, and for Fitz I cover the whole hutch (he’s finishing litter training!) after he’s trained I’ll use fleece blankets as long as he leaves them alone

    I still use the sheet of newspaper topped with the puppy pad, but I did get the care fresh type paper litter & I sprinkle it over the puppy pad now. It has reduced the white spots she left on top of her hidey house! It’s a breeze to clean too, I just roll up the layers, wipe or rinse the tray & replace the fresh layers. I buy the box of large puppy pads & cut them in half.

    I am going to try the pine pellets next though, sounds like it would work similar to the paper fresh, but even more cost effective!

    I use hardwood pellets! They cost about $6 a bag (40 pounds) and are great for masking odors too!

    I can’t wait to get some! When I got the paper fresh I really wanted the pellets, but couldn’t remember what they were called or what section of the store to find them in. But I have it written down now. Getting some later in the week!
