    Does not meet my expectations

    By Cage on Mar 8, 2019 top250Contributor

    I bought this for my 2 gerbils. While this may be acceptable for some small animal owners, I am mot pleased with this item at all. 1. I waited a week to get it, and it would've been worth the wait had it actually been a quality bedding. But it isn't. Let me describe it to everyone. First the package was smaller then I expected but in chewy's defence I didn't pay attention to the size of what i was buying at all. I didnt even look at that i was looking at the quality it claimed to be. That being said how many people have left paper in their pockets forgot about it and washed and dried that paper? That is exactly what this is same consistency just in smaller pieces.

    Super hard

    By Jules on Jan 11, 2019

    I just had gotten a new hamster and I heard this brand had to top bedding. But when I opened the package, the bedding felt really really hard. Is it supposed to feel like that? I’m a first time hamster owner so maybe I’m wrong. However my friend has a bunny and her bedding was the same brand and it came to her soft. After I opened the package I decided to see if it would soften up a few days later but it was still very hard. :/

    Excellent for bird cage liner

    By SylosHouse on Jan 27, 2019

    I purchased a Major Mitchell’s Cockatoo and was turned onto to this product through the breeder. I have bought 1 bag so far and it is perfect for keeping Spicy Chicken’s cage neat and tidy... Hardly if any dust and soaks up poop and spills that messy birds make.

    is just ok

    By HBleacher on Aug 22, 2018

    We just got a hamster 2 weeks ago and have almost used this whole bag because we have had to change the area where he goes pee every couple of days or the living room stinks. I thought it was going to be better than that. It is somewhat soft but it just looks like shredded paper and I thought that it was going to be more like fluffy paper pulp.

    Very good for little ones

    By debtzu on Sep 5, 2018

    I didn't think there would be much of a difference between this & the regular one. I was mistaken. My 2 mice definitely seem to burrow more & better. I also think it controls the odor better. I will continue to buy this for my mice :)

    Great value, fast and easy

    By Angie on Aug 1, 2018

    This is basically the same product I had been buying from the store just a different brand. I recently got two hamsters and this size bag gives my 20 gallon terrarium and 10 gallon a healthy amount of burrowing for each of my hamsters. Makes it much more convenient for me to get what I need since I need it so often because I don't have to go shopping every few weeks when I need a new bag.

    Almost exactly like Carefresh Complete

    By Sandy on Sep 12, 2018

    I literally cannot tell the difference between this and regular Carefresh, but regular Carefresh is absorbent, safe, and good for tunneling, so it worked out well!

    He likes it!

    By LittleBear on Jul 24, 2018

    I ordered this from Chewy after using the coarser version available in pet stores, and my hamster makes a better nest with these smaller pieces of recycled paper. Haven’t seen this in pet stores near me, so I will order again. Paper is a brown color, which camouflages poop, and the price was low.

    Good bedding

    By KB97 on Aug 2, 2018

    Bedding works out nice for my children's hamster cages. Hamsters also seem to like it. Breaks up easily.
