I received a sample of this product in exchange for my honest review.
My kids got their first small pets last year, and one of the first big parts of pet ownership has been making sure they keep up with cage cleanings on a regular basis. Guinea pig and hamster homes can get pretty smelly if you don’t keep on top of cage cleanings, so I am always making sure we have enough bedding on hand. The kids were looking forward to trying a product we hadn’t tried before that I got from Chewy.com – Kaytee Clean & Cozy Forage Fun Small Animal Vegetable Garden Bedding.
Turn your furry one’s enclosure into a home he’ll love with the Kaytee Clean & Cozy Forage Fun Small Animal Vegetable Garden Bedding. Soft and fluffy, it encourages burrowing and nesting to keep your pal fit and mentally stimulated, and is twice more absorbent than wood shavings. It absorbs up to six times its weight in liquid to keep your pal dry and snags up odors for guaranteed odor control. Since it’s 99.9% dust-free, it helps make cleaning the cage easier. Plus, it has free carrot chews in the bedding that your pal can munch on, encouraging healthy foraging. (Chewy.com)
This bedding comes in a compact package, which expands to 2x it’s size once opened. The package contains 23L of bedding, which gets us through a couple cage cleanings. This bedding is soft and has a more “papery” feel to it compared to our other beddings, and our hamster started exploring right away.
Since the bedding includes some fun treats, we shared them between the guinea pig and hamster. Nutmeg really enjoyed chewing on her carrot!
Our hamster got busy digging and nesting in the bedding. Our house has been a little chillier than normal with winter weather arriving, and it is nice to have something to keep the pets cozy.
I did notice the bedding sticks to the hamster’s fur a little bit, since he has such long fur, so this is a little better suited for our guinea pig. It has helped kept the cage fresher between cleanings.
