Oh, and I forgot to add. Aspen, or a paper-based bedding such as Care-Fresh or Yesterday's News, is best for rats. You want to avoid pine or cedar at all costs - they are very dusty and contain a lot of oils which will upset a rat's very delicate upper respiratory system, which can be fatal if left untreated.
