Lauren - Are those bright orange and blue pan liners towels? If so, where did you find them? :)

Yep they are towels. I got them from Walmart about 5 days ago. They have all this new summer bright colored stuff near all the bedding and they were on the outside of one of the isles like on the end. They had bright pink, green, blue, orange and this really deep purple. I never see bright colors there so I will probably go back and get more for when these get demolished. They were $3.50 too!

I went to Walmart yesterday to look for towels and the cheapest ones I could find were $5.00. I guess my Walmart is lame. :P

Mine is too, Schrute. The only cheaper ones they had were white which certainly isn't going to work.

For those of you who use towels, do your rats' nails get caught up in them or isn't that an issue? Also, do you cut yours down to fit the cage and then sew the edges so they don't fray?

My guys never get caught. That was one of the worries I had when I first tried towels but it hasn't happened yet.

I WOULDN'T cut them to fit! A normal size towel is a perfect size and I just fold the edges over. I have tried cutting to fit before and they NEVER stop fraying even after sewing, and I always had a mess!!  :P

Schrute- Sorry about your Walmart! Thats weird that they can very so much from place to place. Our towels are $3.50, $4.50, and $7.00 for the really nice ones and beach towels are $7.00.  :-\

Redecorated on the top level...I didn't have time to do the bottom =p

I made my first double decker hammock! All hand sewn and terribly done, but my babies destroyed the DearPie one, and need something while waiting for the new ones my mom is making me...

And pictures of my new girl, Daisy (the fawn self)

I made this hammock EXTRA long because I know they either all want to be on the top or all inside, and with like 6 and sometimes 7 rats (soon 8 as soon as Julie Lane has her tumor removed and her mites are gone), it has to fit them all!


I made a lip on one end because I know they like to get out easily. =)


The Siamese girl, Margot, is almost four months old, and the fawn self, Daisy, is 5 weeks old...and she's bigger!)

Booty!

Margot making the best face ever while Sam, my neutered man tries to mate with a Daisy who is in heat :doh:

LoL thats a funny look by Margot looks like she is shocked what your male is trying to do. And I like how Daisy looks like she is winking at the camra.

My bottom level is very dark, partially the lighting in the room, and partially the way I hung the hammocks, so forgive that bit, also forgive the food and such everywhere(and the empty bowls because they stashed the entire contents!), I didn't get pics taken until my kids had had the run of it for a bit. heh. They absolutely love it though!



Top level doors open:


Bottom level, for some reason can't find my pics with doors open..


Sebastian and his wheelie tail


Top level hammocks I got from CavyCarnage,
bottom level are from Violet976.

Isn't that toy fabulous? Found it at petsmart in the bird section. I think it was 14.99.  it's a wicker-type wood, so they can destroy it... and I love my little Seb. he is such a dear, and It cracks me up that he has wheelie tail more often than any of my females!

I love my rats.

I did the bottom half of the cage tonight (relining, not scrubbing yet):

There's Margot mid-excited jump and Toad in the back Leaping from one level to the other because she doesn't believe in ladders.

Everyone posing in front of the new hammie my mom made me

Mom's getting really good at it! (She's a quilter, new to hammock making =P)

Yes, My boy is a little fat. Hahaha.

Apparently fleece tastes good.

And one of my first hammocks. =D

Its a shoe rack that I turned upside down and zip-tied to the top of the cage. We have had them a while but I think we got them from Lowe's in the closet section.

I had the same basket (but purple) for my girls and they ate theirs also. My boys aren't big chewers so they don't mess with theirs.

To everyone who's got fleece ropes and hanging toys: do your rats play with them??

I've tried all that stuff and they couldn't give one lick about climbing on it or playing with it. My girls are so boring!

Mine don't really use the fleece ropes, I just make them so that they are there if they need them. But they do love all their hanging bird toys. They chew the wood constantly and it keeps them busy, and they also like the one with the little bell and mirror.  :)

Ditto. Don't care about the ropes, occasionally play with the hanging links, LOVE hanging bird toys. especially the destroyable wood and such types

I LUST AFTER THAT BUTTON CUBE.  Oh dear lord, I want that fabric SO BADLY.  Soon, I will definitely cave and start ordering mass amounts of hammocks of the 'net, I'm sure.

LOL. I love that fabric too! I bought 3 yards when I found it and made 1 set for myself, 1 for the ferret rescue near me, and I made one that I posted for sale on here but no one had any interest so I donated it to the humane society in my city because they occasionally get rats and ferrets.

I found it at Jo-ann's btw in case you were looking for it.

I need measurement for the floors/shelves in the Critter Nation Two Story Cages.  I'm having Dearpie make me some flooring/shelving pads, but I don't have the cage yet to measure.  I'm trying to think ahead!  Would any of you mind getting the measurements for me?  Thanks in advance.

If you do a search on the forum for "CN measurements"....you will probably get a ton of threads and posts including the measurements  :P.
