i have a one-level CN waiting for my three little boys to take over in a week.. but the more i look at it, the more apprehensive i am about the amount of space they'll have when they grow up. does anyone else have the single-level with more than two ratties in?

all this talk of doubles is making me want one/wish i'd gotten one.. haha

I have been keeping three of my boys in my single level until after their neuters and re-intros.  They have been in there for a couple months and it is perfect!  They are fully grown, but they are also pretty big boys and I think it is the perfect cage for them.  My girls on the other hand, need more floor space (no matter the number) so I prefer them in the double wides (even for three))
Two girls have arrived :) Names coming soon.

Clean cage and FINALLY my boy, Sam, has been integrated!! It's his FIRST TIME EVER having roommates in his year and a half alive! (it took a LOT of work getting him to speak *rat*)



Top, I found that lampshade at the dollar tree. =D

Whole thing

My monkey, Margot.

Blurry, but sweet. Sam and Margot didn't get along initially. Now they're best buddies.

Run, run, run!

PILE!

He's such a pretty & happy guy.

And I love this cage. Soooo easy to clean and organize. And room for plenty of girls and a neutered boy. =)

that just seems so unheard of to me, i mean ive heard about rats liking wheels but ive never seen one on a wheel.  though i have really lazy boys so that may be the reason lol.  i need to get a cage of girls just so my wheel can get some use XD

Ok my new cages are set up and ready for display! Let me know what you think of my rattery now.

I installed some shelves under the levels on both cages and you cant see them in the pic so I posted a close up of that here.

I still have to go buy a waffle house for the boys and any other toy that I see and like.

The nursery tubs are on top...

So I went out to dinner tonight for my 8th grade graduation... I got a present... IT WAS THE RECEIPT FOR A CRITTER NATION!!!!!!!  :hyper: :hyper: :hyper:

My mom ordered it yesterday! I can't WAIT! :D I'm so excited! Tomorrow we are going to the fabric store (I bought a swim suit that is WAY too low and needs a little more fabric to keep me covered :P) and maybe some fleece will accidentally end up in our cart...  :cheeky: I need to get to the dollar tree/goodwill/garage sales/fabric stores/walmart and stock up on stuff to fill my CN!  ;D

EDIT : How long do they take to assemble? I hate assembling things >_> I have memories of my mom struggling and grumbling over bookshelves and the *shudder* rat manor. I hope it's not a PITA to put together... =S

Congratulations!!! It didn't take me too long to set mine up, but we needed a hammer and I had a friend to help. I can fit in the bottom section of mine! lol

Congratulations!  :party:

I know how long you have been waiting to get one of these! Mine were both very easy to assemble, the 2nd only took 20min. max (it actually took longer to take it out of the box than to put together  :P ). Just have a hammer handy in case, but I never needed one.

Good Luck!!!

Lol thanks you guys!

SQUEEE! I'm so excited! We're going to the fabric store later today. I hope we can get some fleece, the CN is a big cage to fill!
And tankgirl, I think I could too xD I'll try to get a picture of me stuffed in the bottom when we get the cage :3

The rats are really loving the CN. And the litter training was like non existent because they have been raised on the litter and prefer to use it. So I am having very few accidents. That's making me happy because I didn't expect it. I thought I was going to have a miserable time with this until I order those deep pans, but now I am second guessing getting them at all.

Here is a couple of pix from today.


Heaven at last!

This is the first time in along time there is nothing new in there!

Awesome job, Colie  ;D!


Here is the girl's CN from last night. They are in the dining room for now and I am LOVING all the light from the windows that shines into their cage.





Here is the CN and FN side-by-side:

Four days left till my CN comes!!! :D

I've been sewing up a storm, I'm trying to stock up on hammocks... but they're all standard flat ones and a pocket. But this is what I've accomplished:

The BEST batch I've ever made, except the purple hammock is made from stretchy shirt fabric and thin cotton... it was difficult to work with and came out thin and wobbly =/


And my first attempt at a pocket hammock! I just made a standard hammock and sowed GRRR sewed a piece of fabric over the top, then slit that piece of fabric and hemmed the edges. I don't know how others make pocket hammies...


Tomorrow I am sewing some more, maybe I'll even try a triangle/cube  :cheeky:

Here are some pictures of my new CN before and during dinner. It's only been a couple weeks now, but I'm sold on this cage! The girls are so happy, especially mommas and daughters who finally get to be together. Litter training is still in the works, but is much easier to do with this cage.





On the menu last night; fresh bed of lettuce, raw quaker oats, homemade cornbread, sprinkle of cheese, mandarin oranges, topped with roasted sesame seeds.

Thought this was the cutest of all the shots. Dolce is chasing her mom Spooky down the stairs on the top level, June is munching down next to her mom Sabrina on the bottom level, and little Honey is trying to play with the kitty ball on the top level.
