Default Critter Care Natural Bedding

Hello all,

I am looking for the most suitable bedding for my pet rats but since I'm in Bathurst, small crappy city, I am kinda limited and I have no credit card so can't buy from online stores. Which would you pick?

1 - Critter Care Natural Bedding (Which I'm currently on)
2 - Papertowel
3 - Newspaper
4 - Shredded white sheets
5 Other (Any suggestion?)

Other than that, I only saw some pine and cedar bedding, which I already know aren't good so I don't take them.

Have you considered using fleece liners? I have my boys on fleece blankets from the Dollarama that are secured with clips. Then all you have to do is unclip them and throw them in the washing machine. Its much cheaper and alot easier if you dont have access to a large selection of different beddings.

CLips.. Interesting.. But, I have a very large cage though. Dunno if it would be large enough to clip them XD I could host about 15-20 rats in that cage.

you can also buy fleece by the meter at Walmart...that might be big enough

I use towels. Walmart had small bath towels on sale for 2.50 during boxing week and loaded up on them.

I cut and edge my towels so they fit nicely on the pans then clip them down with binder clips, but you could just as easily just fold them over. I also prefer them over fleece.

I went from using Carefresh Bedding to aspen shavings to fleece. I've finally settled on fleece. It's cheap, clean and easy to use!

Yep, me too (well not me - I use the bathroom, the rats - they use the litterbox with Yesterday's News or Mewsprint)!

I love fleece and so do the ratties. Way less expensive and environmental friendly.
