Oxbow Eco-Straw 8 lbs
Excellent absorbency and odor control!
After reading the reviews I decided to try this litter for my rabbit. I put a small amount on the bottom of the litter pan and add some wood shaving litter on top. It works great! It is super absorbent and has excellent odor control! Using the shavings on top ensures that my rabbit won't mistake the litter for food pellets (though I've heard it wouldn't hurt if she ate them), it keeps her feet from contacting the pellets since they are very hard initially, and it helps keep the cost down. Plus, I didn't have to worry about introducing her to a completely new litter (since her normal litter is all she sees on top), which might have made her want to use the bathroom elsewhere if she didn't like the feel of it. I've even used this litter for my cats after their spay/ neuter surgeries (when the vet said to use alternative litter), and it worked out well since I already had this stuff on hand. This is a great product! I highly recommend it!

I use this product in my 9 year old bunny's litter box. It keeps the odor down and is easy to clean. Highly recommended. We love all Oxbow products!

Seriously the best litter available!
Before I tried this brand, I had been using CareFresh for a long time in my bunnies' litter pans. After trying this litter though, I'm really impressed! Oxbow Eco-Straw is reeeaaally absorbs a LOT... and controls the odor better than anything else! Plus it doesn't stick to the litter pans, which was a problem I'd had with carefresh. Now I use approx 3/4-inch of Eco-Straw, topped by only a thin layer of carefresh (to cushion the bunny feet a little better than the pellets alone). For smaller animals, or ones that aren't litter trained, I recommend putting a small layer of soft bedding on top of the pellets to make it more comfy.
To anyone considering trying this litter: buy with confidence. It works really well!! :)
