Default Paper bedding with wool

This was available in our local pet store today. Does anyone have any thoughts about the safety of it? Fortunately they had another brand that was just paper, so I bought that.

Do you mean it actually had wool in it? Never heard of that. I do however use bedding called paperwool, it's probably a miss-leading name, as no wool is in it.

Petite, please refresh my ailing memory: did you get a hamster from the mainland or did you travel over yourself to get one?

I haven't got one yet! I'm booked on the ferry tomorrow to see what they have in Inverness. Having rung around, there seems to be a shortage of Russian dwarf females, and I have a pink wheel, pink carrier, and pink flying saucer! OH says a male wouldn't mind that, but I'm not sure that I wouldn't mind. I think I read somewhere that male pee has more odour than female, which is another reason for wanting a girl. I'm not sure if that's true, but no-one has one a female anyway. I didn't ask about female robos, though; there might be one of those somewhere.

I have one of those small dome-shaped carriers which just about takes a hamster and some bedding but not much else. Would that be big enough to bring a hammy home in (around 4 hours in car, ferry, and queue for ferry, or would I be better buying a carrier while I'm there that is a bit more capacious?

Pets at Home had some female Russian Dwarfs a couple of days ago, but wouldn't reserve one for me for any reason whatsoever, even though I explained we were travelling a long way to get it, and even though my last one died and I've been waiting 2 months. And now they don't have any.

Wish me luck.

Isn't there a pets@home in Elgin in case they don't have a girl in Inverness?

I have that small carrier and i'm still trying to figure out why i bought it. I think that it is too small for a journey that long. Also, i'd put a slice of cucumber in the transport box to keep her hydrated.

Safe journey and good luck with finding a girl.

Yes, there is one in Elgin, and they don't have any girls either.
The wee carrier was perfect for transporting Theo to the vet, which is only 10 minutes from us in the car, but I agree it's probably not suitable for a longer journey.

And yes - cucumber - thank you for reminding me to take some with me!
