Question DIY paper bedding.

This probably sounds like a stupid question but Is it safe to use color paper for that DIY paper bedding or would the ink be toxic to my ham ham.

Definitely not.You need to know what the dye is from,and if it is artificial it can at the least stain or at the worst cause health problems especially over time with exposure and ingestion.However,you could use plain toilet roll and make dye from hamster safe fruits instead to make DIY substrate(although it wouldn't work well for anything other than a substrate topper,certainly not as the entire substrate and would never replace plain undyed toilet roll as nesting material)

Just wondering how you're making your paper bedding, just in case you're thinking of using shredded paper don't! It can be really sharp & isn't safe.

With me I'm planing on using whole sheets and rolling it in a ball and roll it in my hands until it gets softer then unroll and then rip it in strips.
