Thank you Chelsey. They do not have it any more, but they have a few other food bowls I like quite a bit. :)

I NEED one of these...!  :-[ They're just so massive...I don't have the space! Or the money for one...they're on sale right now..but 200 something is a lot of money for the cage...! They're SO FUN!

Do the rats that live in those HAVE to be litter trained? I could NEVER get my rats to poop in one spot. They'll have nothing to do with it, they just poop on absolutely everything and favor peeing from the top down onto their roommates.  ::)

Just finished cleaning the cage. It has a very Valentines kinda feel going this week. I think my boy Teddy literally had this reaction when he saw it  :eek:  :o . My mom said it looked like a bordello   :puppy_dog_eyes: (maybe the playboy fabric).

I need to stock up on valentine's stuff! I think (hope) I can scrounge together enough fabric for a pink/red hammock...  ???

The cage looks great though... I'm sure Teddy has adjusted.

I thought that was a pink turtle when I first looked at it and thought to myself, "Where did she get that one?"

Dumb point for me...

I finally sucked it up and started slowly hand stitching a valentine's hammock :P It's wine colored fleece on one side and red on the other. I also managed to stitch a nice purple heart on the fleece side and stuff it (it's pretty awesome!). I have virtually NO pink ANYTHING in my room... I hate pink!
I managed to make her cage look as valentine-y as possible, I laid out some of the wine colored fleece on the bottom of the main level, and scattered pink paper hearts all over... It's mostly purple/red/pink in there, I managed fairly well. With the hammock it'll look better :)

I firmly believe part of the joy of rats is having that "doll house" cage to decorate, clean, and fuss over.  It's creative, low stress, and fun.  Even if I'm running like crazy on a busy day and just rush through the cleaning, I still feel a sense of satisfaction when the job is done and the girls have a clean environment to enjoy.  I love my doll house!   :D

I think baschlais meant that the FN/CN is like a dollhouse because it's so fun to rearrange things and decorate for our rats aka "dolls"

I did have a huge dollhouse that I picked up at Goodwill and was going to make it into a cage or enclosed play area for my hamster but it didn't work out, it was wooden and would have soaked up urine and we couldn't find a waterproof paint or sealer that was non-toxic, water based, etc. The idea though, if we had been able to find a safe paint/sealer, was to use plexiglass with lots of breathing holes drilled into it to close up the main opening in the doll house and the windows. It would have had terrible ventilation and I'm sure the wood would have been quickly chewed through, so the idea was dropped though we could have probably found a safe sealer eventually. It was a cute idea, but not really functional.

LOL - I'm sorry, Penny - no doll house cage!  That would be pretty funny.  I'm sorry that I wasn't very clear in my last post...  I just see the girls' cage as a doll house; something for me to play with.  Of course, the "dolls" tend to poop on everything...    ::)   It's just a CN and my imagination.

Lol, that would be a very sleepy Grace at 3 AM ::)
That WOULD be interesting. When we had hamsters, we actually let them run around in an old dollhouse. They were only in there an hour a week before they ruined it with pee and chewing!

I love all of that pink, and I really, really like that floral with green background fabric for the hammocks! That is the cutest fabric ever, and matches so well with everything!

I love the barn on top of your cage, HelloKatie!  Do your fuzzers enjoy playing with it?  I would love to find some FisherPrice buildings for the ratties, but they seem to get snatched up at yard sales quickly.  Very fun!

Hooray! I'm buying the girls a two level CN with my tax return...and maybe some Dearpie hammocks..and a Star Dome Home...and some Chelsey's Cozies..and.....

Question: When making liners, do you usually use one layer of fleece or two sewn together?

I was just cutting the fleece to go over and under the pans, but my rats ex specially the girls would chew the corners alot.  I bought a sewing machine and started sewing the liners.  I use fleece and flannel or fleece and cotton and they seem to chew it way less.  Don't get me wrong there are a few tiny spots they chew but not bad at all.
