Newspaper Newspaper in Litter Box-Okay?

Right now I'm using newspaper (folded) in Ginger's litter box. I change it everyday. She seems really drawn to it. I moved it to a different spot and she went right to it. Is this okay?

You can use whatever works for you. I used newspaper and shredded newspaper in the past, but found that it does not absorb well. You may have to change it out often or she will sit in her own urine.
Mufasa has a couple of spots that he favors for poop and pee. I used Carefresh, but now I put some squares of newspaper under the bedding in those spots. I change it every morning, and it seems to help with keeping his cage cleaner between the weekly strip-down.
