The top doors are 3 feet and 26 inches up, and the very top of the cage is about an inch and a half up :)
I haven't uploaded photos in forever... so I have like 25 piled up on my desktop waiting to be uploaded :P I'll post pictures in a minute. They're nice and bright because I decided to clean AND decorate outside, since it was so cool out.

Hey, after I hosed down the cage, we wheeled it up the porch steps and this yellowish brown nasty liquid came dripping down from the wheels... what is it? I'm pretty sure the structure of the cage is hollow to a point. Is it just crud + water + hollowness?

No problem :3
I'm waiting for them to upload, I have 10 or 11 left first xD I've been taking a lot of pictures lately. Probably because there's such good lighting when it's slightly overcast.

EDIT - finally loaded :D

There's no full view because I managed to get our license plates in the picture :P

Pennytherat; Great set up!  I love the little chair, so cute!  :)

My fiance took me rat-shopping today!  I went to the Dollar Tree and the Dollar General.  :hyper:  I got a BUNCH of stuff and completely re-did the CN.  Hooray for fiances!  :bow:  Please excuse the crappy quality, all I have is a cell phone and a film camera.

Dollar Tree.  :)  Part of the Halloween stock, they also had little skeleton men strung up the same way.  I love halloween stuff!  I always end up using it year round.  :yelcutelaugh:

So awesome! I think i'm going to hit up the local dollar tree and get some stuff for my girls. The majority of their hammocks are halloween themed! lol.

Here is my amazingly mismatched cage  :yelcutelaugh: The yellow & grey hammocks are made of old shirts! I'm going to start selling "Recycled Rat Hammocks". I'm all about recycling & reusing!!


They sure are eating away at that pan fast! I need to get the boyfriend to spray paint my bass pan that came over a week ago! If I would've just done it as soon as I got it I would've almost been able to use it!  :doh:



Here is one I made from my shirt from the summer camp I worked at this summer.

Corpseflower - I really love whatever fabric that is that you used as the pan liners. Are those towels, or actual fabric, and where did you find it?? It's so bright and colorful and I love the stripes. :)

I made them from some fleece throws [blankets] I found at the dollar tree.  I THINK they were four dollars.   :)

New Layout! I absolutely ADORE this monkey fabric I found and sent to Violet to have made into a cage set.
Made a new note to self today too : it is a serious PITA to do cage cleaning with the crew still in there, the girls drove me nuts trying to figure out what I am doing, even when I am dustbusting! luckily, the boys were content to play in the other half while i worked..  :doh:   :yelcutelaugh:

If that trash bin works like I think it does, a rat could get stuck in it =/ If the lid thingy closes, I don't know if the rat can push its way out. Take the lid part off to be safe :)

Great setup though! I love it when people do blue/green or pink/green for each half. I never have enough stuff to mix and match :P

How do your rats fit in a hamster cage?!  I didn't realize the holes in those were all that big?  Cute set-up, I am also a big fan of the dollar store  ;D
Two girls have arrived :) Names coming soon.

Yeah, Penny, after I posted pics I thought about it and took off the swinging door. Thanks. :)

Colie, that is their wheel! They LOVE it, and I do too. It  is called the Critter Revolution, meant for a hamster cage but is also a great rat wheel. Quiet, too! I have had 3 girls running on it at once, it is that big! :thumbsup2:

Oh I know its a wheel, I just couldn't believe your rats can fit through the hamster size hole to get into it!  None of my girls can squeeze into our hamster's tubes  ;)  Some of my girls are a little pudgy these days though!  :yelcutelaugh:

Thanks :) I think I always do blue/purple/green setups because I adore those colors... and of course I used them for my room too :P

Yes, they can fit through the holes. My girls are small, though..except one of them. :)
They usually use the door on the bottom left, it is wider and taller.

Penny, I love those colors too! :)

I wish I had pictures of a CN to post! I've been searching all over Goosemoose for CN mofication tips but I haven't been able to find anything. Would anyone here be able to tell me how they/how to convert a Double Level into having 2 separate levels. I have 3 rats, soon to be 4 if Newton takes to the new baby & I'd love to be able to keep them all in the same unit, just not together. Any help is appreciated, thanks ;D.

P.S. Everyone's cages look great, my head is spinning with fabric ideas!

There is a ladder that goes between the two levels.  It just hooks up onto the middle level of the cage blocking it off so that the rats cannot go through.

I promised myself that I wouldn't post before I had pictures of my CN to take photos of, but since I'm at my parent's house tooling around until I get my new girls in the morning, I thought I'd add my two cents in. :)  I love the cage, and it is much nicer looking in the room than my old Martins.  I've currently got it split, because I don't want the boys to start thinking of the top level as theirs when the girls get there after QT.  I think that'll make them more likely to accept her after I start intros.

I do have a couple of questions -- what do you guys do about hanging hammocks on the long bars?  I try to always keep the hooks on the short bars, but sometimes it doesn't work out the way I want to.

I'll get pictures up tomorrow after I get back home. I promise.  I have ratoob pictures to upload also.

You mean so they don't slide across the bars??  I take a small binder clip and clip it across two of the bars (if you only clip one bar it still slides) next to where I want it to stay.  Easy enough to move when I need it elsewhere.
