Wink Fitch bedding - import to Europe


maybe this is a bit of a weird question, but still I would like to try : ) I would really love to try Fitch bedding that is so used in UK, since I have read so many good reviews on it. However, Fitch does not ship this bedding abroad and it cannot be bought in Europe. I have also tried to contact Fitch, but I was not succesfull with it.

I would like to ask, if there is someone maybe, who has the possibility to import this bedding to Europe? I would pay of course all the expenses. Maybe there is someone with small shop, who would be willing to sell the bedding to me.

I have very bad experience with Kaytee Clean and Cozy (extremely dusty, full of plastics pieces), and Carefresh is expensive here and does not hold burrows. Unfortunately, I do not have many other alternatives for paper based beddings.

Thank you,

Default Re: Fitch bedding - import to Europe

I think it would need to be a private arrangement as Fitch are the only sellers (Amazon sell it but it still goes via Fitch directly).

There are similar beddings sold by rat rations who ship all over the world I believe- not sure how much it costs. You’d have to put something in the basket and go partway through checkout to find how much shipping would be. They sell aubiose (hemp), pure comfort (paper) and finacard and other soft card bedding.

I’ve used Pure Comfort before - it’s ok but can have a tiny bit of dust. Not as good as Fitch but similar. You could mix a paper substrate with Finacard to make it go further abd have another texture.

However with the current pandemic situation and flight restrictions it could be difficult to get anything shipped abroad.
