Keep your chinchilla happy and his cage smelling fresh by finding some good chinchilla litter and bedding for your buddy's habitat. Chewy carries a great selection of chinchilla litter types and brands, so you'll have no trouble finding the right material for the bottom of your little one's cage.
The best chinchilla litter material will be dust-free, absorbent, and comfortable for your pet. Most paper bedding for small animals has all these attributes and comes with the added benefit of being compostable and biodegradable, too. You can find paper bedding in many different textures and piece sizes, and some of it even comes in fun colors to liven things up. You can also use shredded paper as a cheap bedding alternative, but make sure to use ink-free or non-toxic printed paper and avoid newsprint for safety.
Avoid chinchilla bedding and litter made from cedar or unprocessed pine shavings, as their aromatic oils can cause respiratory distress in your pets. Soft aspen shavings are dust-free, odor-free and suitable for chins, but they can be less absorbent than paper and may not reduce odor as well. You can also use kiln-dried pine shavings that are free from harmful aromatic oils, or try a product made from eco-friendly pelleted wheat straw. Some chinchilla owners like to use chinchilla fleece as bedding, too, but be sure to find some that's anti-pill to ensure your chinchilla's safety.

Put a safe, odor-free and absorbent small animal litter and bedding material on the bottom of your chinchilla cage. Paper bedding is usually the material of choice, but you can also use aspen or kiln-dried pine wood shavings or even fleece to line your cage. Be sure to put at least a few inches of bedding in the cage so your chinchillas have plenty to nest and play in, and remove any soiled litter you find.
The difference between chinchilla bedding and litter is that you put chinchilla litter in a litter box for elimination and bedding at the bottom of the cage for resting, digging and playing. If your chinchilla does not use a litter box, your chinchilla bedding will function as litter, catching waste and absorbing moisture and odor. The best substrates for chinchilla bedding often work well in a litter box, too. Just be sure to use different substrates for bedding and for litter so your chinchilla knows where to "go".
Usually, chinchillas do need bedding and litter in their cage, but you can just use bedding if your chinchilla doesn't use a litter box. Choose an absorbent, small animal-safe bedding and/or litter like paper or aspen wood shavings. Some pellet litters can work well as bedding and litter for chinchillas, as well.
