Well, I have found the Product on the net, I think from their website you
can get the stuff, but may have to order it. I just called them, they have
never Shipped to the States before, but they said they would be willing to
do so, with shipping cost's
Here's the website with the product on there.
Its called Safe Bed, Paper Wool. I use it for all my hamsters and rats, for
males and females with pups. I was told about it by a breeder that has been
using it for years. I buy the Huge bag, 2kg's it costs me about 8.50 as
the exchange rate is now its about $15. It last's for ages, (I have about 80
cages) I change it about every 2 weeks, depending on how much you have in
the nest, and how much the hamster pees in the nest. I never change it all.
They do have other products that they say are safe, but I have never used
them, so I can't say for sure if they are.
Hope this helps.
