Can Equine Pine pellets be used for small animal pet bedding?

It is recommended that Equine Pine pellets should not be used for cats because the size of the pellets are larger and most dislike the texture and will refuse to use the bedding. For use with small animals they find the pellets to be uncomfortable to lie on. Also, some of the other Equine pellet companies may utilize other woods for creating their pellet and they can contain tannins, which can be harmful to cats and other small animals.
