Use Shredded Paper for Pet Bedding

We use our shredded newspaper and junk mail as bedding for our pet rats. It can also be used for other small pets like hamsters and gerbils or even rabbits. This is better for the animals than traditional wood shavings which can irritate their lungs and its completely free. Best part is, since these animals do not eat meat (which could contain parasites) it can be composted when their done with it and used in the garden. Caution-don't use glossy sheets or envelopes with plastic.
