Here is the top part of my CN.  The bottom part is basically the same but it has no hammies.  My mom is going to teach me to sew, but I dont know when.  =(  She said after the next goodwill pick up comes.  Which hopefully is soon. 




I ran out of fleece for the shelves so I had to leave them bare. I would use a towel but my dad would get mad.  lol
I miss having ratties!

Can your order an extra level for the CN? I like the single level, I just feel that one more solid level would increase the available space for the better. I tried searching but I can't find anything with this site, or Google.

Are you talking about a shelf or a double CN?  I am confused  ???

No they are not available yet.  I don't know when it will be or even if it is for sure they are going to.  There have been people who have modified them together.  Like two 1 levels together sideways.  Another person had two two levels and took one level from one of their cages and turned the other into a 3 level  and left the other as a one level.

lol I worded that wrong. I meant shelf. The single level only has one and I think another one at the back of the cage (as opposed to the side) set slightly higher than the first would be nice.

I've been thinking about searching around for metal shelves of the right size to put in my cage (not a CN) and just zip-tie them or something. Is there a place I can order shelves for pet cages? Or ramps? I've searched all over the place but I just can't find any. Ideas? :sign13:

I'm making some new hammocks & liners today out of old shirts! :) I love recycling. Photos to come when I'm done later tonight or tomorrow.

Here is a corner shelf with ramp: http://www.ferret.com/item/super-pet-corner-look-out-with-ramp/650775/  They sell these elsewhere as well, I am just not sure of the stores.
Two girls have arrived :) Names coming soon.

You can get a ramp here: http://www.amazon.com/Midwest-Ferret-Nation-Exterior-Ramp/dp/B0012GPZXS/ref=pd_sim_dbs_k_1  I couldn't find any shelves though :(

Oooh! I've seen that stuff before but never thought of giving it to ratties. It probably makes great nesting/stashing material :D

I want a CN so bad but it's hard to get in Canada. You can get them online but they want to charge you up the a$$ for shipping and then expensive border fees on top of that.  >:(

Colie, How did you get a 3 level CN?

I've never met a rat I didn't like. I've met plenty of people I couldn't stand.

PorkChop: Thanks so much! Artsiekat makes them.

Pennytherat: Its Ecobedding  ;)

BubbleandSqueak: It is a single level on a double level, the top is not open to the bottom.  To get a true triple level where all of the levels are open, you need 2 double levels since there are no add-ons (or I guess I could do some modifications to the floor of the single level...)

My girls keep chewing up the liners, so I have to binder clip the heck out of them D: I wish the CN pans were metal and didn't have a bump on the sides. It would make clipping liners a lot easier, and my girls don't scatter litter or make a huge mess, so that's not an issue.

My boys always end up chewing a corner of the liner so they can tunnel under it.  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:
Luckily for me, I haven't found any foods stashed under there.... YET!

Brand new home as of Thursday.  (A local shop was able to special order it and get it to me in ONE DAY, woo!)  Nothing super-fancy, really, but my two ratties are very, very, very happy zooming, climbing, and modifying (mainly the bottom level gets tunneled under / etc). :)  Unfortunately, I'm having trouble uploading photos to my album here; I don't know if it's because my account is newish or if I'm just clueless / impatient.  But, photos:

Here is my CN as of today. My parents are coming down here to meet my ratties for the first time so I spent all night making a new set for their cage. I still need to make a few more hammocks, but I absolutely love this set!

Love the set up miss_jenna ;D
I wheeled the CN outside today to do a full, deep cleaning again. The mailperson came up to our house and asked what it was for, and I told him rats, and he said wow, spoiled rats you have! xD

I would have pictures, but I haven't uploaded them yet :P I should go do that now.

*still have envy*
Can someone measure how high the top doors are on a 162?? I roll my current cage up against my bed and the door opens at the perfect height for them to climb out.
