Is Dougal eating his paper litter? I know that Yesterday's News here in the US is a good litter made out of recycled paper. Noble used it while staying with other bunnies while we were in Hawaii. It is great stuff and doesn't smell as much as the country cat liter we normally use.

I use a recycled paper cat litter. There's no nasty toxins and my bunnies seem to enjoy lying in it!

Paper based pellets are fine.   I also used recycled paper  - though it is compressed into hard paper, but there is also this stuff here called carefresh, and it's softer.

Paper based pellets are great, though the softer stuff may not soak up the odor as well. You will find out if the product you bought does okay with that.

It is usually not  a problem at all for bunnies, unless Dougal decides to really consume it like dinner.  Otherwise, it's fine for him to nibble on and eat small amounts.

How's it working so far?

I use Bio-Catolet, which i get from Tesco and comes in a green bag with a cat on the front. (Most pet shops stock it i think) I found it much better than the softer stuff you can get from super markets as my rabbits used to trample the soft stuff around with them as it sticks to their fur, i was forever sweeping up around their poo-trays.

I've used the wood pellets too, but that turns to mush when they wee on it and the same thing happens - i also thought paper was better for rabbits if they were going to munch on a bit.

With BOo having her op tomorrow I was wondering what I should use as bedding if she is going to have a belly wound. She currently likes to lie in bio catolet just like bunnybabes bunnies, aswell as hay. Sawdust and wood shavings are a no no because she has breathing problems. Will an old towel suffice or do you think I should use something else or just continue with the paper pellets.?

Apart from this I think I am all ready for her post op care.

For post op, I'd recommend something especially soft - like a piece of faux sheepskin or very soft blankie in her cage to lay on.  You may also want to pick up a small bag of carefresh to use for the week since it is softer than the pellets would be.  We're all thinking good thoughts that the surgery will go well!
