Subject: [ferrethealth] bedding good/bad for ferrets

I just adopted a ferret who was kept in a gray bedding material per local Petmsmart protocol. Does anyone know what this bedding brand is called? It looks like ground up newspaper and cardboard and resembles material I have found in mouse and squirrel nests in cabins. It seems it would be harmful to the ferrets with such small fibers breaking loose. It was scattered in the total bottom of the cage - he did have a hammie to climb into and he had a separate litter box. Any help or resources if this is unhealthy would be helpful. Cathy
