WEll if you don't feel comfortable using that use some shavings....there clean and not harmfull for him and just as easy to clean up. I also talked to Binky bunny when i first got my rabbit Shadow and you could try using pine PELLETS.....same stuff you can get for cats, i find it work awsome.

Hi ASG,

If you're working on litter training your bunny, purchase at least one litterbox, since the idea is to confine the area your bunny using as a bathroom. Also - if your hutch has a wire bottom it can lead to problems with sore hocks, so I would highly recommend layering mats or newspaper over the wire bottom to protect your bunny's paws.

Newspaper is safe for bunnies, and makes a great base under litter. Most people use litter because it really is good at absorbing the odor and urine. My personal favorite is called CareFresh - but there are a number of other rabbit safe litters you can use.

Popular & safe litter choices: Care Fresh, Yesterday's News, Cat Country, Critter Country, Papurr, wood stove pellets (very inexpensive, but it's harder to find in the summer)

Avoid / unsafe: pine or cedar shavings or chips, clumping litters, corn cob, clay litter

Here's a helpful article with photos about litter training:

If I'm understanding you correctly, you're only using newpaper, shredded and flat?  That's totally fine.  It's not the most odor absorbant stuff around, but it's not unhealthy for the bunnies.

Other litter that is better at absorbing odor and is also paper based is Yesterday's News and CareFresh. (I think Gravehearted covered that)
