I have pictures of my SP cage that I will load up today.  Just wanted to pop in & say how much I've enjoyed this (& the other 2 pictures of cages threads)!  They have given me so many ideas for my girls!

Is that a rug in the bottom? Do you just wash it?

Yea, it's a rug and yes, wash it in the machine...and all the rest of their bedding. Throw a little vinegar in with the detergent. It works pretty well with the only problem being I have to wash a LOT and clean the cage a lot because of urine. I mix it up with using the rugs or just throwing in carefresh bedding on the bottom if I'm not going to have the time to change the rugs a lot. I like the rugs because we don't have the funds right now to buy enough carefresh to keep it changed as much as I like (sniffles).

It's a fabulous cage set up!  You get massive props from me for putting together decorations so economical and inventive. 

Thanks!!  :BlueDumboSmile:  :rattysmiley:

Here is my cage this week!  & a couple pictures of the girls 'sploring!










I made all the hammocks, cubes & liners myself!  I have been sewing like mad this week in prep for my new nekkid girl & because I am getting another SP cage just like the one I have for the boys!  I love this cage!

Wow, you have a very unique cage set up.  Very nice.  I really like the unique type of igloo too.  It's also funny how the lab blocks ended up at the bottom of the "slide" lol

Oh, and that basketball thing looks alittle unsafe.

I always put their blocks at the bottom of the slide.  When I moved Winky into the cage that is where she would stash her dry goodies, so I just started putting them there to begin with to save us both the time & a little cage mess.  Since then all the ratties just leave them there.  I have pretty tidy girls.

The basketball looks unsafe?  May I ask why?  Argie loves it & carries it around in her mouth & plays with it.  I'd hate to take it from her.  :(

In the pic, it looks like the edges might be sharp enough for her to cut her paws on.  Perhaps it looks worse than it is?  I'd test it with my finger pushing hard against it.

Oooh.  :)  I will test it & see what I think.  Thanks for the heads up.

AlwaysAmy, it looks great!
I may be going blink but i can't quite make out how you have the liners attached--are they tied to the cage bars?

btw:  If the basketball is sharp you can smooth the edge with a soldering iron or even just a nail heated with a cigarette lighter.

They are tied onto the bars.  I made them because I needed liners that also have the holes in them (for the tunnels that attach to the shelves of this cage).  I am still trying to figure out exactly how I want to make them.  I sewed these ribbons into the liners.  I also made some with the corners folded so I can thread ribbons through, thus I could replace them incase the ratties chew them.  I know you can do clips but these shelves are deep & have a lip & I don't know if they would work like I'd want them to.  I am also thinking of making some that have hammocks built into them & hang under the shelves.  We shall see.  I am still cooking things up in my head.

I have the Super Pet 'My First Home' cage.  I like it because I can move all the shelves around each time & remake the layout of the cage.  The rats really like all the slides & tunnels.

Thought I'd post a pic of my modified SPE.  I actually am no longer using the original shelves or ramps that came with it.  I built a full middle floor and found some hanging closet organizers that have the same footprint as the shelves.  I get bored with my cages very quickly so I may wind up putting the original shelves back in there at some point.

Here is mine again this week.  I found some sweet new shelves so I've been messing around trying those out.







I've usually don't give them boxes as part of the cage set up just because they shred them up so fast & make a mess.  But I've got so many saved up, I figured I should give them a few & stop saving boxes for awhile!  haha

When I was still teaching last year, I had one of those rolling bins to take work/teacher's editions home with me to take care of.  Well, other teachers/students started noticing I was snatching up all the empty tissue boxes to take home to the rattums lol needless to say I needed up with GARBAGE bags FULL of empty TP rolls and tissue boxes hahaha  It took me several months of giving them like 3-5 boxes at a time to go through them all and not get the evil eye from hubby dearest for having garbage bags of "trash" and not throwing it out hehehe  :P

Aww the vintage looking little girl in blue fabric looks so cute in there (especially with the fuzzy fabric lining it).  Are those things knitted or crocheted?  I might have my mom knit me some hammies/toys lol.

It's not vintage looking, it is vintage.  I love to thrift shop & I am always dragging home fabric.  I make all my hammies out of that stuff.  It's way cheaper, more unique & green to boot.  :)

My old blind man Gollum is living in a SP Deluxe Care Home with the shelf taken out. He doesn't get around so well anymore, so he's just living in the one level, with plenty to do on the ground, and a couple of low hanging hammocks for him to easily get into. I don't have a decent picture unfortunately, but you guys have some great shots!!
