Title: First cage set in 3ish years.
Post by: *Kat* on March 05, 2010, 10:41:35 PM
Ok, So I got to work on a cage set for the girls tonight.   From one piece of fleece I had I ended up making a bottom liner, 2 shelf liners, 2 rectangle hammocks, a corner hammock :)  OH, and we picked them up a basketball net tonight too.  So they have all those things in their cage in addition to their food bowl, and 2 boxes.  I'd forgotten how excited ratties get when they have new cage decor!  I had to evict them while I set the cage up cause they kept wanting to come out while I was setting it up, so they went to play with hubby while I set it all up.

Very cute.  What kind of cage is it if you don't mind me asking?

Also, I may be overly paranoid, but is it at all possible do you think that they could get caught in the basketball net?  Just wondering.

We used a basketball net years ago with rats and never had an issue, just when it starts getting frayed we throw it away.   

It's this cage.  http://cgi.ebay.com/Ferret-Chinchilla-Rat-Cage-Cages-3974_W0QQitemZ220567151572QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item335ad3a3d4

Thanks, it's the fleece I had enough of and was ready to part with.  Wasn't ready to give my malden mill (sp) fleece to rats, lol.

No, we took some time off from rats.  I haven't had any in that amount of time.
