I have seen this kind of bedding before, and now I have just seen it again on Petsmart. I am making a chart thing comparing the different beddings and the brands of beddings, I was wondering if this was safe? Here's a link to it on Petsmart:
http://www.petsmart.com/global/product_detail.jsp?PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=84552444180 5989&FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=2534374302026355&ASSORTMENT%3C%3East_id=2534374302023695&bmUID=1097199708477

It says it isn't pine or cedar, and it says it is soft white shavings, what could it be?

Also, I have found CitraMax Critter Comfort bedding. It says it is made out of orange peels, I have never heard of such a thing! Any thoughts on this? Here is the link:
http://www.petsmart.com/global/product_detail.jsp?PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=84552444178 1546&FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=2534374302026355&ASSORTMENT%3C%3East_id=2534374302023695&bmUID=1097200286257

I'm also not too sure about the following beddings:

Kaytee Soft Sorbent- http://www.petsmart.com/global/product_detail.jsp?PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=84552444178 1551&FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=2534374302026355&ASSORTMENT%3C%3East_id=2534374302023695&bmUID=1097200579100

Kaytee Chlorophyll Pine Bedding-http://www.petsmart.com/global/product_detail.jsp?PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=84552444177 4977&FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=2534374302026355&ASSORTMENT%3C%3East_id=2534374302023695&bmUID=1097200579133

Does the chlorophyll really help anything?

I've seen it before too, in the store itself - it looked just like aspen to me. I didn't flip it over to read about it though. Dunno about the others.

Ok here I go-
Kaytee Soft Sorb- pretty much like carefresh a little cheaper depending on where you live works really well. In my opinion works better than carefresh but I still don't love it. Too spendy doesn't last long enough...

Cozy Critter Shavings- They don't have any smell and they definantly aren't pine or cedar you can tell. I love them they work nice. They are pretty spendy though....

Kaytee Chlorophyl- This stuff is no good! The chlorophyll is just an added thing that really doesn't do anything It is not needed. Unless you want to air this stuff out for a couple of weeks or more don't buy it! And if you want to talk about aromas, this bedding has them... It even says "Kaytee Chlorophyll Pine Bedding and Litter is an aromatic bedding that helps mask odors. Chorophyll is added to quality pine to provide a clean fresh aroma. Also, there is a special triple cleaning process that helps eliminate wood debris and fine dust. " Basically this stuff is no good don't buy it!

I have no idea about the last bedding other than that it is too expensive!

Ya it varies for me one bag will be dusty the other bag won't. But it does work nice. But it is too spendy for the amount you get!

I don't think it would be too good. It wouldn't absorb anything much, and the smell would probably get to them. Clorophyll is just color added to the usual pine, which is bad. Kaytee soft sorbent is fine, but Kaytee is generally not a great brand, so I won't buy from them. (hay dusty, foods contain icky stuff) I think the wood shavings should be fine. Sounds like they may be kiln dried or else aspen. Looks promising!
