Guide to Gt Litter Boxes
Gt litter boxes are not your normal litter boxes. Without out it, you are unable to really have your gt bunny. They are special litter boxes that are designed for gt bunnies, plus they are able to make their lives a lot better!
GT Litter Boxes come in three different sizes: small, medium, and large. The size needed depends on the personality of your gt bunnies. A small or medium will be sufficient for dwarfs or dutch but if you have giant breed bunnies then go with the large size.
Things in gt box
- Litter mat- this will help keep the litter from tracking outside your box and making it easier to clean up any stray litter on the floor around your box. This is particularly important if you have carpeted floors as i do, but can also be helpful for hard flooring as well because it will give your cat traction so he or she won’t slip when they get out of the box (i know mine does).
- Bedding- the best bedding is something that absorbs and neutralizes odors and wetness. You can use wood stove pellets, recycled paper pellets, or care fresh which you can buy at Petco/Petsmart type places. It may seem expensive but a bag will last you months!
- Litter: there are many options when it comes to litter so feel free to experiment with different ones until you find what works best for your bunny. Some bunnies like fine-grain litter such as arm& hammer clump seal ( one of my gt’s favorite litter), some like large grain litter such as chinchilla gold (another of my gt’s favorite). There is also natural litter such as pine, recycled paper pellet (rpcl), and litters like oxbow natural rabbit litter which is alfalfa pellets. So many options but there are also some litters you should avoid such as cedar and scented litter (if your rabbit can eat it then i don’t think it’s very good for them to breathe in the fine particles into their lungs).
- hay rack- hay gives your bunny an option of what they want to eat and this will cut down on their food bill. If you would like, you can make one using a plastic container such as a butter tub with holes poked (needle) in it, most bunnies will love hay racks because it’s like an extra treat for them!
