      Hey y’all! Me again.

      Cleaning Jumping Jack’s litter sucks. She always ruins her toys, so she gets bored fast. That makes it to where she finds entertainment in drinking. And peeing. Lots.

      In other words, my bunny is the filthiest living thing ever when she uses the bathroom.

      I think this would be better if she has better litter. Since it’s cheap, I use rabbit safe pine shavings as litter. It’s not absorbent at all. I know feline pine is a great rabbit-safe litter too, but it’s wood pellets so I don’t know if it’s absorbent or not.

      So, what I’m looking for in a litter is something that clumps, a little more heavy so she can’t kick it out of the box, safe, and smaller (so I can use one of those scoops with holes in it to remove the dirty stuff and keep the clean stuff).

      Anybody got anything?

      I would recommend tractor supply pine pellet stall bedding. Lots of people on this forum use these bedding. It is not expensive which is great!

        Can you get it online? I love Tractor Supply, but I have never seen one in Montana.

        I’ve never found a great source online (the shipping is prohibitively expensive), but if you look for feed supply stores, or hardware stores in winter they often carry them. They are also sold as wood stove pellets (with no additives or propellants).

      I also recommend the tractor supply pellets.

      As a side note, increased drinking/peeing can be related to other things aside from boredom, so make sure to monitor if it may actually be a sign of some sort of ailment, like teeth discomfort.

      Also, it is actually very positive that your rabbit is “ruining” toys — most rabbit toys are consumable and ruining them means she’s engaging with them to get energy out. As owners, we need to make sure we have a regular supply so our rabbits can consistently have that engagement.

      I concur that pine pellets are awesome.

      Clumping litter as a rule is not safe for rabbits, but pine pellets break apart when saturated, so it’s kind of a reverse clumping. I use a cat scoop to scoop out the wet areas and sift out any clean pellets.

      Yep, pine pellets are great. If you can’t find those, compressed paper pellets (e.g. Yesterday’s News) are good too. The pellets break down when they get wet and those wet areas can be scooped if desired.

      Oxbow also makes pine pellets too. I don’t know much about them though.
