Ooh, great setup WEAVER!  Looks good.  Did you make those liners yourself?  They are really pretty!

Thank you Jenn ;D

I did make the cage liners.  :)

IT is almost time to clean the girls entire cage for the first time.  I still have to make them another set of liners for when this one is in the wash. :cheeky:

I HAVE to know where you got the Angelina Ballerina fabric, it is too darn cute. I'm tight on money right now, but I would so splurg on that for my gang!

Yes, I love the pink polka dots.  I did end up getting a new dish in the mail yesterday from MRR and it is pink with all pastel dots.  Also really cute.  I love the colors in yours ;)

I cleaned the girls tonight and changed their cage around.  Here is there new setup :)

I absolutely love this cage!  I think I am going to get a black tv stand to put it on and get it up off the floor.  I hope to find one with doors on the bottom of it to help store all of their stuff.

That happens sometimes with me and the FN thread and I feel weird for taking pictures of my cage so much  :yelcutelaugh:  But then I remember it's because it rocks  ;)

I wanna see your pics, Marsha!  :BlueDumboSmile:

I really do feel like I am taking over the thread, but here is my cage this time around.  (Same colors, sorry I love pink :D)  All of their hammocks, and such are made by Chelsey.  I love how they came out and they match the cage pads wonderfully.

Here is the cage with the doors closed.


Here is the top level.


Bottom level.


Several people on my guinea pig forum said that I need to cover my ramps or my rats can get hurt.  Is that true?  The grids on the ramps are so close together and the rats barely even touch the ramps.  Two hops and they are where they want to be.  I would think it would be the same as they climbing along the outside of the cage ???  I don't want the girls to get hurt, but I also don't like the look of the ramps being covered and I think it would be a pain to get them to stay on and change them out to clean them.  Any input regarding this?

Now that's a bright cage!  I love all the pink - it's my favorite color.  The hammocks looks great in there  :)

Don't worry about the ramps - no need to cover them  :)  The only reason I cover mine is because I have an older boy (Nigel) who has hind leg paralysis, and a girl (Encephalon) who's not very well coordinated because of a brain lesion and other brain-related issues. For young rats especially, they barely touch the ramps!

I envy you all who can put fabric on the levels of your Martin's.  I can only have it on the bottom pan, and it's gotta be pinned down with binder clips really well or it will get dragged around and chewed up.  I have linoleum on the levels, but I'd love to be able to put something softer.

Heather, have you tried to use grommets in the corners and binder rings?  Mine were dragging the pieces around and than I started attaching them to the cage and they are much better now.  The little stinkers are still chewing my towels on the bottom of the cage to pieces, but the cage pads are "safe" :D

Jenn, your cage looks great.  I love the tunnel hanging from the top :heart:  Very pretty!

I adore Martin's cages, and have both rat and ferret cages that are used regularly.

Well, here are just a few of mine.  ;)

My boys' cage - an R-695


The Dwarf boys' cage - an R-680


My girls' cage - an F-430HR


I also have another R-695, an R-670 (currently in use but no pics) and an F-420  :thumbsup2:

Is that F 430HR powder coated or PVC coated?  I like that cage but my girls chew the PVC coating off the bars.

My eyes are burning!  It's so colorful  ;D  It looks more and more awesome each time to clean/re-decorate, Marsha.  And I never thought about burrow hammocks being hung that way!

Ohmygosh I love all of the pictures posted! Everyone is sooo creative. :]

I actually ordered a martin (the 695 one) and it should be arriving sometime soon. Though I should probably get some more stuff... I see everyone's cages filled with all of these toys and ropes and hammocks... @.@ -runs off to search around-

I will be back to post pictures (maybe) if the thread is still alive and once I get the cage and have it set up! Hehe :P
