Default say hello to Holiday Snow

Hello bunnies and rabbits
My name is Holiday Snow
I was giving that name due to my owner adopted me just before the holiday season started
And I look like a snow ball.
I am only a couple months old
And I am a girl bunny
My type a white pink eye or red loinhead
I am kind of shy at this time.
Please welcome me to this forum

Happy holidays
Love Holiday Snow

Hello. Welcome to the forum! She's cute, but you should stop with the wood shavings. It's not very good for your bunny. Ideally, your rabbit should have a litter box with some natural wood litter (NOT mineral, nothing scented) and nothing on the rest of her cage. That way, it will be less of a hassle to clean, your rabbit will learn to do her business in the box and she won't have to lay / eat in her own waste.

My owner cleans the cage every 3 weeks and Pratt's said this litter is safe.

You are cute ... welcome to the forum.

However, perhaps you need to think about telling your owner that wood shavings gets in your fur and can make a mess. Litter training isn't too bad and then that messy litter can be eliminated ... that is, if your owner uses pelleted litter for your litter box. Or if your owner doesn't mind the shavings in your fur, he or she can just use the shavings in the litter box.

I have to say something on the safety of litter. Pet stores sell cedar bedding, and many claim it is safe for animals. It is not. The phenols (smell, odor, oil) in the bedding causes irritation, even for people. Just because someone says it is safe, it may not be safe.

On the other hand, I am of the opinion that pine is relatively safe. Most pine beddings that are manufactured for animals are put through a process to dry it so that it is safer. Now, if you used pine shavings direct from a tree, I would say that isn't a good idea. Hardwood shavings such as aspen or poplar are even safer. There are also paper-based products. The key to this is finding a bedding brand that isn't dusty, as dusty bedding can cause respiratory problems.

You're so cute!

The following replies are true. I used wood shavings as my rabbits bedding before. It has a stronge scent and my rabbit was uncomfortable. I did some research. Turns out, rabbits are not compatible with wood shavings! Of course it might be cheaper to buy, but it can be a big mess. I can already see from the few pictures that it clings onto your fur!
I recommend buying natural bedding. Not wood chips nor pine wood, but a softer bedding.

Tell your owner! And you're very cute!

I use wood pellets in my bunny's litter box. ( a thin layer of hay because the wood pellets are hard ( then the hay rack)
If its aspen, then yes its safe. To prevent your bunny getting bedding in its fur a litter tray would be ideal (it might not be good at litter training if he's young) have fun with your fluff ball!

Tell your owner that paper bedding can actually be made, that's if he wants cheap bedding/litter.

How did you get your name???
