As the proud mom of four small furry creatures, I go through a lot of pet bedding. As I buy various types of bedding, I always feeling bad spending money on something that will end up in the trash a week later.
Meanwhile, I shred our bills and junk mail, feeling vaguely bad about throwing all that paper trash into the garbage each week (although I don’t consider myself all that “green,” I do love repurposing items).
One day, VOILA! I thought, why not use all that shredded paper as bedding?
You observant readers may wonder where pet #4 is. He is a rabbit, and doesn’t use bedding.
Try this for your small animals and see how it works. If your animal is extremely sensitive, I suppose it’s a possibility that the inks in the paper would bother him, but our pets have had no problems with it.
Additionally, my girls love knowing that last week’s math homework is now creating a cozy bed for their furry friends.
