Whaaat. Is that carpet I see? How does that work for you? My little girls are fleece shredders.

Yes. It's bathroom mats! I love it. My rats are fleece monsters, but barely chew on the carpet mats. They are heavy enough they can't pull them up, absorbent enough they keep down smells fairly well, and machine washable. You do want to make sure to get rugs that don't have loopy yarn so feet can't get caught.

I have to admit. At first I didn't see the rats. I scrolled up and then back down and jumped when I noticed the rats.

Ha-ha! 4 live in this cage, although one isn't shown in this particular photo. I have a dumbo double Rex Himi named Imp, top eared Himi named Willow, PEW named Mochi, and a Blue Hooded Rex named Mr. Pickles!

Here's ours. We finally got it moved over to our new place. Popcorn just had surgery, so she stayed with us in her Hospital cage until she got her stitches out 10 days later, and over the weekend I got to sewing a fresh set up for her (and her new friends). We are only using the top half currently.

The word I think of is...PINK! What kind of paint did you use and how is it holding up to wear?

Thanks, its my favorite color!  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:
Well I originally painted i teal, and it held up great. Then I repainted it pink without sanding first and it's held up okay, but in spots you can see some of the blue through it where the pink has chipped. I recommend it if your cage needs repainted, but I'd sand it first if its an older cage, or already been painted once. (And most importantly I want to mention: Let it cure outside for 2-3 weeks for the safety of your rats if you do paint your cage!) Its Rustoleum Painters Touch Spray Paint. :)

That pink paint is amazing, and matches your hammocks perfectly. I have never painted my cage, but now I'm thinking about spray painting it green.

We repainted our blue cage. I left it outside since I had no room for storing it before we moved, thinking it wasnt a big deal because we didnt plan to get more rats. Well now we have a couple of ferrets we adopted from our vet. Bryan wanted them. I only said yes because they are older (4-5 years old) and shouldnt be too big a commitment. I had ferrets about 9-10 years ago and they stole my heart, I was so broken up about losing them (both passed from renal failure a few years apart), I would cry any time I saw another ferret, and I honestly cried just thinking about adopting these two.

Anyway, we fixed up this cage and it will be ready in a few days for them. The ferrets get this minty color DCN and the ratties will keep their pink DCN.

That mint cage seriously makes me want to go get my cage back. I bought mine used and it started getting a few small rust spots so I gave it to my brother for his ferret. But that cage looks amazing! Just the normal spray can paint? How many cans did you have to use?

Ours was left outside for a year (or close to it). It wasnt in great shape, but the paint really helps make it look new again. Its Rustoleum Painters Touch spray paint. I used 7 or 8 cans, but thats partly because I have Bass Pans that I painted to match. If you dont have Bass Pans you will probably need only 4-6 cans (maybe more depending on how badly the wind carries the paint away, or if you take the cage apart and spray each piece separately.) And most importantly, let it cure outside for 2-3 weeks. Ours is on our enclosed patio with every window open.
