This subject has been a topic of debate for a long time. So I'm going to give you my opinion.
Contrary to Popular Belief:
While paper bedding and fleece are often used as bedding for small animals, I strongly recommend against both of these options. The main reason is because neither have the ability to control odor and ammonia levels build up very quickly. Fleece is also not absorbent. When animals urinate on it, it builds up over time as a film over the top. This means animals are constantly walking on their own urine. Even when placing an absorbent layer underneath some urine still stays on the top of the fleece, building up over time.
Anyone who decides to use either of these should understand that they need to be changed very often to keep animals healthy. Paper bedding should be changed every 2-3 days and fleece NEEDS to be changed every other day.
Here at Bleu Jay Exotics, the use of any beddings that are unsafe will result in making our health guarantee null and void.
