I get my cage today, I'm about to go to work, so I haven't openedthe box yet. I am worried about unpackig the cage, she box is pretty beat up, and I heard the delivery guy drop the cage in my doorstep, I'm hoping that everything is okay with it. I can't wait to gt off work now. :party:

A lot of people in this thread have had bad experiences with UPS and their boxes coming totally destroyed, not to mention the cages being broken.

Mine looked like it went through heck and back, and was perfectly fine apart from a slightly bent wire on the very top portion.  I hope yours arrived fine, even though the box might be scary looking!

UPS is actually better out here than FedEx. My box came with only one bit of damage to the corner. The top pan for my cage was cracked though, and my dad said that that was more likely from the way it was manufactured than from UPS.

I put the cage together today, it was a little frustrating. Some of the sides were bent out of shape, but easy fixed with a hammer, and the base is a bit wobbly, but it at least looks nice. xD
 my crew love it, and Penelope cant stick her head out and try to bite me when I open or close the doors.
I'll have to get some pics after I get my cage sets from Smidge.

my CN came several weeks ago and the box looked like it been thru hell but amazingly nothing was bent at all. we did use a hammer and a block of wood to make sure everything was in as tight as it could go though, which improved things. I'm so happy with it...and here is the first few pictures of our new babies, Tass and Lyra (Siamese, cream and American Blue respectively) inside.

Wow it looks great! I how do you get the fleece to stay on the shelf? I'm always looking for new ways. :)

on the shelf i take out the plastic and just tuck the fleece around the edges and slide it on. stays well and the girls don't mess with it. It's just a single piece of fleece but it was measured so the sides lined up and the top and bottom were long enough to be securely tucked under.

The bottom pan is a pillow case style and I measured it so that it fit snugly around the edges and had a overlap on the opening. I just tuck the open ends under and it works rather well.

I added the toys and wheel after.

Thanks, I love it! The ratties get a kick out of climbing from one tube to the next.  I got it from artsiekat's website, its called the quad hammock or some such.

 :cheeky: We must be! It's just such an awesome print haha. I'm going to joanns tomorrow to buy a bunch more of that fabric. Hopefully it's still there. There was a lot left last time I checked. Did you find it at your joanns?

I love cage cleaning day  :heart:





See the shirt hanging on the bottom level? My daughter grew out of it, so I sewed the bottom shut, added grommets at the shoulders and voila! :)
Of course they haven't touched it, but that's typical, eh?  :yelcutelaugh:

Here is some quick shots of the double wide after we set it up.  Everything is a bit messy from setting it up.  I will post more pics after it is fully decorated.  I am so excited  :hyper:

Just cleaned everything today! I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, but wow does tripling your amounts of rats make things dirty quickly  :eek:


Left side, featuring the wheel, their absolute favorite thing. Also the litter box, their least favorite thing  ::)


Right side. Tenny's being cute in the tube, Gibbard's looking for a way out, and that's definitely Honey hanging from her hind feet in the bottom right corner. Could somebody tell the little monster she's two, please?  ;D


Full cage. Note the escapees.

Also, the obligatory pictures of my new babies:

Gib

and Ten

Here is my 1 level.  Took the wheel out because the boys were not using it anyway.  I found the shelves on sale yesterday at Target for around $5 each.
