I purchased this in the hopes of potty training my Syrian. I saw her putting some of it on her cheeks and thought she was taking it to her den. A week later i found out she had eaten it when she passed away due to a blockage in her digestive system. She was less than a year old. I would not recommend anyone use this product.
I started with a sand bath for my senior dwarf hamster, but he decided it was a litter box instead. The bathing sand was turning to smelly cement when he peed in it, so I switched to this litter and its perfect. No smell, easy to scoop, and keeps everything clean unlike the bath sand which would stick to everything and gets kicked everywhere.
I was nervous about trying this. Either it wouldn't work - or would the hamster eat it? Worst case scenario I am out of $4, but wanted to try anyway. I monitored Pinky and he immediately got to work depositing his poop in the litter box. I am so happy! I will buy more when we run out! It should go a loooong way.
I tried this the day I brought him home. He immediately took to it and he has not gone anyplace other than his litter pan. Definitely recommend
My hamster likes this litter and it does help potty train him to keep his home nice and clean
I grew up with hamsters and had no idea they could be litter box trained until we bought my son a hamster and the cage came with the teeny tiniest litter box. I was totally dumbfounded. We buy this litter and sure enough, this hamster is completely litter box trained. I think this would have changed my childhood! But I’m glad I know it now!
Our hamster Sandy uses this more than the reptisand. She kicks it out of the little potty she has. She rolls around in it too. It's really cool.
I put this stuff in a small litter pan for my rats and they were using it within minutes. There are a few caveats: 1. I am using the grate that comes with the litter pan because otherwise they eat the clay which I don't think is good for them. 2. They are peeing in it, which is great for saving the bedding/keeping the smell isolated. The pee sinks below the clay and the pan needs to be washed very well. But that's better than turning into cement as I've seen other products do in reviews.
CLAY LITTER IS BAD FOR SMALL ANIMALS!!!! Especially for rats. Small animals have very sensitive lungs and CLAY litter is bad for them
I have a Syrian and a Dwarf (kept in separate cages) - the dwarf Robo wasn’t a fan of this but the Syrian seems to like it. He poops in it but pees in a separate ceramic bowl thing. At least he’s consistent! (Not the products fault)
