Before I ordered mine on Allpetfurniture i called all the petsmarts in the area and asked if they had the cage in stock I got told they had it online. Half of them didnt know what i as talking about.

Aww, thanks! It doesn't match at all with the purple/pink fleece but I really like it to, so oh well. :) The girls don't mind. ;D

YAAAAAAY, Schrute!  You got your cage undamaged!!  I saw the pictures of your book in the other thread and was amazed at what great shape it was in!  I sure hope my second one comes like that.  :)  Your cage looks great!

Everybodies cages look so nice  :) YAY my parents agreed to let me get one, so I'm ordering my two story on Monday. I know it's not likely, but I'm hoping I'll get it buy Friday and have all weekend to make more hammocks and such to make it all pretty! AHHH I'm shaking with excitement! ;D ;D ;D

Thanks! Part of me feels guilty that it came undamaged, kind of like, why mine after so many people have had trouble? I guess I should just be thankful for the fact and not question it.

Like the OP's husband in other CN thread said, you *will* need a hammer to hammer some of the parts back in to place, or else it won't go together right. It's kind of like fitting lego pieces together, hehe.

I posted my CN in the FN thread, like others were doing, but I guess I will post it here, too. This is my CN from last week, cage cleaning today!

You are killing me with the pink, you don't even know....

I need to remember to start buying more pink-themed hammocks. That would be soooooo cute!

I am not girly, at all, I'd rather have vintage-like fabrics, blacks, skulls, ect.....but for some reason when I fabric shop...my eyes are drawn to pink girly fabrics. It is annoying to me  :yelcutelaugh:!

I just think that when I make my rat cage vibrant, bright, happy colors...that whenever guests come over, they take to my rats more quickly then if I had a dark colored cage. Though, they do wonder WHY my BOYS have PINK!!

I love the pink... I just, for some reason, never buy pink hammocks. Most of my hammocks are blue, or green, or darker colors. I need to make an order with just pink... bright enough to make people's eyes hurt when they walk in the room. That would be awesome. ;)

That was the girl's cage, the CN, well....Spice and her babies  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:. I am getting her boys (Jack, Jasper, Harper, and Tucker) used to pink as they grow up, since they will be neutered and might as well blend in with the ladies :yelcutelaugh:!

Julztonni97what is that green shelf thing in the upper left of your cage? It looks really cool for another shelf.

It's an add a shelf made by S.A.M.  I used to have it bookmarked but we got a new computer.  I would have to look around where to find one.  I couldn't find it in stores only online.  It is great because the green part comes off to wash, the center is yellow fleece material for them to lay on.

For 32 years of my life I was not girly at all, and pink was right out!  But for some reason, when I hit 33, I began slowly buying pink shirts....pink shoes.....then my ratties got a couple of pink hammies.....then the girls were suddenly decked out in every shade of pink..... :yelcutelaugh:  I'm just going to admit it, I ENJOY pink!!!!  I am a pinkaholic!   :thumbsup2:

Me too! If everything I owned was pink I would be thrilled to death. That is why I am so excited about having the CN for the girls because I can deck it out with PINK. My boys are probably glad they don't have to endure it, haha. :)

I'd really like to get a two level CN, but that's just not financially possible right now. So I was wondering, how many rats can live comfortably in a one level? Also has anyone ordered one from Petsmart.com? I'm wondering if any have been received from them damaged or in bad condition. Thanks!

12 for a 2 level, 6 for the 1 level.  That's what the cage calculator says.....but personally, I like for them to have more room and I probably wouldn't put more than 4 in a 1 level.  that's just me though.

Thanks. I only have two right now, so it shouldn't be an issue. But I just wanted to plan ahead for the future. Is it possible to buy a one level now, and then buy one later and connect the two? Or would I need to buy a full two level one?

I'm fairly certain that you can't connect the CN the way you can the FN.  The two level isn't much more than the single, you could just save up a bit longer and get the double.

I plan to buy another one level CN and connect it with my current one level CN, side by side...to form a horizontal cage  :).

I don't think they have an add on unit for the CN yet, either. But someone mentioned somewhere that you could always buy a second single unit later on and connect them side by side. I connected the two halves of my FN back to back, and used it as the bottom half of my rabbit cage. (The top is made of NIC panels)

(undergunfire beat me to it!)
