The best option for safe rabbit cage bedding

Is paper bedding combined with some dust extracted bedding hay for the ultimate in cleanliness and comfort, to help your rabbits enjoy the cosiest naptimes.

Although you can use an old newspaper as a rabbit cage liner, it’s not ideal as bunny bedding or bunny litter. If your buns rip it up, the newspaper ink can be harmful if they ingest too much of it.

Likewise, softwood litter such as sawdust is too dusty and can affect your rabbits’ respiratory system. Remember that hay is not just for bedding and to ensure that your rabbits have constant access to soft, sweet-smelling, dust-extracted feeding hay.

Soft on little paws, Excel Nap & Nest Paper Bedding is ideal. It provides super-absorbent, odour-free, safe bedding for rabbits, made from unused offcuts from teabag production.

An ideal solution to keeping your buns clean

Specially designed paper bedding for rabbits and other small animals is super-absorbent, safe and an ideal solution to keeping your buns clean and cosy while they sleep.

Your buns should also have a constant fresh supply of good-quality feeding hay, placed in hay racks, willow balls or tubes and in areas that are separate to the bedding area, along with fresh, clean water.

Rabbits generally prefer to munch on hay while they’re resting and they also like to ‘poo and chew’, so put a pile of yummy feeding hay in their favourite resting places and hang a hay rack above their litter tray. That way, your buns’ accommodation can stay clean, dry and hygienic while they munch away happily on their favourite .
