Yes, you have to 'fluff' the product to make it expand but it is so worth it. I get like 4 cage changes out of the largest bag and I fill my tanks DEEP because my little guys are crazy tunnel dwellers. If I want a pop of color I will add a 20% mix of the care fresh colored bedding for fun without compromising softness. The main reason my hammies and I love this stuff is how freaking SOFT this product is. So fluffy and great for tunneling, I don't have to worry about a tunnel collapse at all. I have ROBO hamsters so the smell is very minimal. I change the tanks out about every 4 weeks but I do spot clean once a week.
I absolutely love this bedding for my two guinea pigs’ cage. It is very compact, so I can get 2-3 changes out of one bag. It is very soft and fluffy, so I am sure it feels nice to them as well. I ordered this on a Sunday and it was on my front porch the next day. Very impressed with the shipping time! Definitely recommend this product.
My hamster lovesss this bedding. This bedding is the only bedding he actually likes. But it has random prices of plastic and trash in it. Make sure you look through it before putting in an animal cage because your animal could choke on the plastics.
After a couple of bad batches of the carefresh bedding, I decided to try the kaytee again. I must say the quality has definitely improved. I actually prefer this over the carefresh now. There's been no dust, and it expands very well! It's very soft too. My gerbil and rats approve!
This product says it expands to 3x its size. I was hoping it would expand upon putting in my Guinea pig cage, however, it does not. It is hard to spread and you have to separate by hand. And it doesn’t seem to work any better than pine shavings as the smell returned just as fast. I’m switching to something else.
Make sure you sift through this before giving it to your small pet. I found a piece of metal and multiple unknown types of of string? The piece of metal was honestly concerning enough that I likely won’t purchase this again. It was the size of my pinky nail, not sure how that got through quality control.
This is my absolute favorite bedding. I’ll probably never switch from it. It’s always so soft which makes me comfortable with my piggies having to walk on it all the time. I use it in their litter box as their “litter” and I love it. Since it’s white you can easily see the pee spots and spot clean them, allowing it to last for longer. I find it also has pretty good odor control but I don’t think that matters much because you should be spot cleaning your pet’s potty areas every day. I’m not always the biggest fan of Kaytee but this product is great and the quality is reliable
This is good highly absorbent and odor preventing bedding. My main complaint is the prices have gone up. Would recommend
The Kaytee bedding used to be great and control the urine smell in my Guinea pigs cage. Something changed. After just 3 days I can smell it while it used to last the whole week. I don’t know what Kaytee did but I wish they would go back to what they used to have. The change seemed to happen right when bedding was hard to find several months ago. Not recommended. People coming to my house have even mentioned that they can smell the cage when they have said they never smelled it in the past.
I have rabbits, Guinea pigs, and hamsters, so I’ve gotten to try this on a variety of animals. I would not recommend this product for Guinea pigs and rabbits or any smelly pets. It does not absorb smell well at all. I tried it in a proper sized Guinea pig cage and in my rabbits litter box, and I was not impressed with either. The Guinea pigs especially smelled so bad. All of my clothes and fabrics smelled like Guinea pig pee. I do recommend this product for hamsters/less smelly rodents though! The bedding holds its form well so great for hamsters to dig their tunnels. It is very soft and comfy and not super dusty.
