I found a bag of this natural kapok fiber. It's soft, warm, and appears to make nice bedding. I placed it in my mousies cage and they immediately began to feel it. One of them started munching on it and alarm bells went off in my head! Thankfully I found information on it. It's great for pillows, life preserves, jackets, etc; but not to use it for pets! It also went on to say that kapok fibers should NOT be used in the pet industry.

The fluff's song fibers can wrap around the small limbs of a hamster leading them in some cases to chew their limb off. The fibers when accidentally eaten can also cause digestive blockages which can be fatal.
