Wow! A question based on location that I can answer! :D I'm in the US, also! :lol:

You actually do NOT want to use pine or cedar. They can both be toxic to your little ones (any small animals, actually). Which is rather stupid, because here in the US, pine and cedar are the most popular offerred beddings for small animals! :roll: PetSmart (as well as almost every other pet specialty store and some grocery/department stores) carries aspen bedding in the same aisle--looks similar to the pine, and it is safe. It is the only safe wood-shaving-type bedding that I am aware of here. It is a little more costly, but not too bad. It's the cheapest safe thing that works well that I can find. I have been searching constantly for something more economical that works, to no avail. The only horse beddings I can find here are straw, cedar, and pine pellets. So, aspen is what I use. Though, I usually mix it with Yesterday's News cat litter (just a thin layer on the bottom of the cage beneath the aspen), as it is really absorbant and helps with odor. However, you don't have any bucks, do you? lol
