To my Scottish customers. I have had to add a new courier choice for courier deliveries to Scotland because unfortunately, the courier I use have increased their prices across the board and whilst I used to absorb the extra cost of shipping to Scotland, I can no longer afford to do that. It might be more economical to split larger orders into two or three orders weighing less than 2kg. It is a pain, I know, but there is not much I can do. I can also offer a collect+ type delivery as well if that would be of any interest, it is convenient and keeps costs down a little.

TRW P&P prices have recently changed to reflect the Royal Mail prices increase and restructuring. In some cases, the prices will be lower and in others, they will be greater. Unfortunately, the price changes are more significant than the last ones. As a small and very specialised company, it is impossible for me to subsidise shipping costs and remain open, but I endeavour to keep costs down and pass any savings on to my customers. Increases are more noticeable in international shipping.

We have added a new section for your doggies! The shop sells a lot of items that are designed for dogs but are suitable for rats. But we sorted those products into one dog aisle. We will be adding doggies products as time goes, keep an eye on there!
We also have a few new products in, check out the treats and toys aisle.
Have you seen the Trixie Mini Capri carriers? They are probably amongst some of the best small animal carriers I have come across, they feel sturdy and the access is great. It can also double as a hospital tank. When people see them at shows, they sell like hot cakes.

Check out our new loungy tubes! We now currently have them in pink or lime zebra, or pink and black or white and black skulls and crossbones fleece. We are also looking into a few new products from an entirely new supplier! Exciting! As we update our Facebook page more regularly than the news page, we strongly recommend that you join us on there for more regular news and updates!

Some prices have gone up recently, due to the increase in VAT and in fuel prices which has a major impact on the cost of importing and purchasing supplies. We try to keep our prices as low as we possibly can so we apologise for some of the prices which seem to have jumped up recently.

After numerous reports of faulty Ferplast Drinky bottles, we have decided to take them off our shop.
17th Jun 2010
Alpha Herbal Deluxe has been taken off the shop. The manufacturers have decided to change the recipe to improve it for rabbits. It now contains grass pellets and lots of grass which makes it less appealing for rats. We have replaced it with Burgess Supa Rabbit Natural which contains no alfalfa pellets but does contain some grass. It is a little compromise I hope everyone will be happy with. It also provides copper at 15mg/kg of food and 12.5% protein.
19th Jan 2010
We will have our pink cocoon igloos by Savic online soon! Keep an eye on our lounging page.
Also due to certain production issues, the Hammock section will be rearranged shortly and you will be able to purchase our hammocks again. The colour ranges will be limited but will change more often. We will also introduce our new Hammock dimensions to suit new larger cages such as the Explorer and Tower/Abode.

Sometimes people forget, or are unaware, that this shop is run by one person, me. Today, my Mother died in Canada. So I need some time to sort things out which is why I closed the shop temporarily. I trust you will understand. Thank you, Sabby.
