Although my rattie cage isn't as great as all of yours but I've just added some toys that I made for them as well as the two I bought.
However, we just got good news. We have a huge cabinet thats coming our way soon and so we are converting it into a rat house. I love looking at all the pictures of your cages. Giving me loads of ideas on what to do with the cage when we get it!



Oh and incase you was wondering... yes the girls are in there, Annabell is in the vianeta box and Elizabeth is under the wood arch. They had enough exploring and went to bed :)

And i had to share this freaky pic of Rosalie; she rushed the camera when i was taking a pic of her and her eye looks kinda scary, but cool


I currently have this set up and a pink set up but i think i am gonna make a dark blue/green/orange set up to make 3, just depends on if i feel like sewing more hammies  :cheeky:

Oh my gosh, Lauren_22, that is an AWESOME picture! You must have very lucky timing. Your cage is pretty darn cool, too, I love your Nemo fish! :D Mine's not quite as fancy, but I'm working on it.

Hehe yes you did :D I got it from a charity shop yesterday. They had a table to go with it but I thought that would be pushing it a bit  :BlueDumboSmile: I tried getting a pic of Annabell sitting in it (of her own free will) but my camera is slow so by the time the picture took she was off it. I'll keep trying though.

Animummy, are you planning on getting a larger cage soon?  I don't think the one you have is large enough for two rats, though it is cute and all.

I reaaaaallyyyyyyy like CNs even though I've been looking into Martins for longer. It looks so much easier to clean with more floor space. The only thing I likd about the Martins more is that the had more levels for climbing and exploring, but I could just add another balcony to the CN somehow...has anyone done this? Petsmart sells birdcage add on levels. I mean they'd be much smaller than the CNs level, but they're cheap and would work. I've heard of peple using other stuff too. Anyone?

I just posted a picture of the heart shaped bowl in my Target thread  :P. I got those towels from Walmart on Black Friday for $3 each. I can't seem to come across pastel yellow or the pink anymore. I think they just ordered in other colors for BF. You can get awesome towels at Target on sale sometimes for $4 each...bright pink, teal, green, ect.

^^^You have so many neat ideas for accessories in your cage! That is so neat. Do you mind if I ask about that super long tube on your top half? Is it something that you made, or bought from someone?

This thread makes me want a CN very badly!!!

The SO just bought a lot of unnecessary and expensive airsoft supplies which means I think I'm entitled to a CN...

I'm just having trouble deciding whether I should get the one level or two level!!  I'm sure the one level would be more than enough for my four girls, but.....two levels would be much more fun to decorate :)

You can't add on later so, personally if you have the extra money and you have the room I'd go with the 2 level.  I bought the 2 level for my 6 girls (7 girls if I can successfully intergrate one of them) and I just yesterday got another 2 level CN for my 4 boy's(used the 20% coupon I received, nice discount).  I love them.

Schrute:  Isn't the fleece tube fun?  It was made by Wonderrodent and is incredibly well made.  The extra holes in the sides make it easier to go hunting for sleeping ratties...  I've had it for about a year and it has worn and laundered extremely well.  Her items are great!  I must admit, the girls rarely use the bird toys on the top half (the ladder with chews and small blocks that is stretched horizontally and the hanging colorful wooden toy).  The terracotta pot was a bust, too.  Even the hanging roll-around ball is totally ignored.  They seemed like such good ideas!  Oh, well...  I should just give them away on the forum.  Maybe someone else's ratters will enjoy them.

Andie:  Isn't the toilet paper a riot?  I've seen them climb into the cube, then pull the paper in after themselves.  It's a wonder they fit in there at all...   ::)

Does anyone have suggestions for something that could be used as another half-shelf?  I have a lot of wasted space in the lower level and I think another shelf would be nice (over the wheel).  What have you all used or tried?

I just picked up these 2 wire letter trays at a garage sale this morning on my way to work for $1.00.  I figure I could cover them with fleece liners or something.  Now I just need to get someone here to help me zip tie them on.

Bachlais- I LOVE the toilet paper hanger! I MUST try that! Penny's definitely the type that would loooove to unroll a whole roll of T.P. and use it as bedding  :cheeky:

And I was glad to notice that the bottom of each level was made of the same wiring as the top of the CN - you can hang hammocks just as easily!
I decided I wanted a FN142 (which changed to a CN161) in September. I promised myself I'd make money. And here I am, it's March, and I have four dollars in change.  :doh: I really suck at stuff like that...
