Default Re: Question about bedding

I would put paper in one half of the cage and wood in the other then see what happens. I'd go with whatever the hamster prefers because he's the one who has to live with it and not us humans.

I use Kaytee mainly with a bit of Carefresh now and again but use wood shavings in their playpen box. I can't remember why exactly wood shavings are deemed unsuitable and what harm exactly, if any, they are meant to cause a hamster.

My dwarves dig in both, paper and wood and seem to like both but prefer the Kaytee i think, going by the amount of time they spend underground and the number of tunnels they build. They need paper for their nest so they can surround themselves with it and plain toilet paper strips are well liked.
