From what I read here and elsewhere, aspen shavings are safe and I've seen them at my local Tractor Supply so I would guess all stores carry them. I know I've seen the really huge bags there but not sure if they carry small sizes in case you want to try out a small amount first. My Walmart carries small bags but not sure if others do.

Yes, aspen is fine, but not pine or cedar. Some good brands I have used are Kaytee Clean & Comfort and Carefresh bedding. They are a tad costly, but if it's only for a litter, it should pull you over for a bit.

Pine is fine to use if kiln-dried.

I highly recommend Carefresh. It helps eliminate odors, absorbs well and is comfy for your piggy's tushy!
