Drache, is that large green litterbox the bottom to a smaller cage?

My CN is supposed to be delivered today!   :hyper:

Update: The 162 has been delivered but I am at work right now and it is at my practically father-in-law's house since I live in an apartment and didn't want it left at the door. My boyfriend is finding out now if his brother or cousin wouldn't mind helping get it up the three sets of stairs. UPS says it is 111lbs.  :o

It shouldn't be harder than dragging a body up the stairs ;)
The 162 weighs as much as me!  :o

And you're familiar with dragging bodies up the stairs?  :-\    :P

Hehehe, maybe an unconscious robber or two. xD Just kidding. Although, I did drag my bored friend up a set of stairs once. That would be the one that wasn't used to staying up past 3 AM.

Lol. My boyfriend and his cousin got it up the stairs while I was at work.  ;D I've already posted this on the FN thread but I thought I'd post here too. :) The box looked terrible, it has several huge holes, but the cage is in great shape. Only the top half is decorated right now. I'm going to decorate the bottom half sometime between tomorrow and this weekend, I always have a bunch of fleece that I need to sew into hammocks.

So here's the top half of my new cage. :)  (the spot where the stairs are clipped up is now covered with a folded up piece of fleece they're sleeping on)

2 new ladies are on the top.  The little PEWs that my hubby thought might be pregnant and didn't want to leave them in the feeder tank.  He's got a big heart, what can I say.   :heart:  On bottom are our 3 bigger ladies.  I did a little intro today, but our Jail Bot (we call her that because she very much resembles a vicious robot that keeps track of the jail on an Adult Swim cartoon called SuperJail!) well, she was pretty overwhelmed with it all.  Things were fine while they were in the tub, but when we put them in the newly cleaned and decorated cage and they started to dry off, Jail Bot got really aggressive.  I'll try again in a couple days.  It wasn't TOO bad, I do tend to overreact when they fight.  I just want to take it slow.

Whole thing...

Jail Bot and her minions' realm


And for anyone wondering how the heck I got corner hammocks in a CN...zip ties!   :wink5:  I put a zip tie around the end of the cage and just put the clip onto that instead of a bar.  If you've tried to put a corner hammock in one of these, you know it's impossible without some rigging.

I see you found those baby teething rings too, Heather!  :wink5:
Penny likes to balance on them. It's fun to watch her rock back and forth trying to stay on xD
I finally have a babysitting job soon! Maybe I can get some more wiffle balls.

It's so simple! I can't believe I didn't figure that out. My corner hammocks have been in retirement since the CN came.

Heather, I have the same thing going on right now with my own "Jail Bot". What is working well is opening the divider between the top and bottom of the CN and letting them all explore for an hour or so a day. I just sit next to the cage and referee. I really want them all to have full run of the entire cage eventually. Good luck to you!

I FINALLY ordered my CN yesterday! I can't wait for it to get here! I ordered a new cage set, and I'll also be busy at my own little sewing machine making things for it (of course, they won't look as nice as the cage sets I order, but they work). I'm crossing my fingers and toes that I'll come super fast (like this week)!  :hyper:

I do that all the time with my current cage. A lot of decorations need a little rigging in it.

I'm still doing intros with my new guy too. It's not that anyone is picking on him, it's that he is the biggest cry baby. Anyone even tries to groom him he starts squeaking like he's being killed (then he runs over to mommy for protection ::) )

cerulean blue - I just ordered mine yesterday too! I keep checking my order status, it's expected to ship today or tomorrow......*drums fingers impatiently*

I ordered from allpetfurniture - anyone know if it comes from them or Midwest warehouse? Cuz if I'm remembering correctly, it comes from Midwest and I think their warehouse is in IN, which means if it really ships tomorrow, then I COULD have it by Friday, I'm just over in IL!!!!!

I'm DYING to go get come fleece, I don't know if what I have now will fit. Maybe I'll just go pick up some sale fabric to make a whole set of hammocks and stuff to deck it out when it arrives to keep me busy while waiting.

I love how in your fourth picture, there are a pair of little rat feet coming out from under the 'one kiss' plush heart. :P

Haha, I noticed that too!  At first I was like, "Is that heart standing up?" XD  Then I noticed that the feet were definitely not plush!

And I totally saw that heart bowl at Micheals the other day!  Is it bad when I wanted the bowl SOOOOO much, because I thought it would be the perfect rattie bowl... and I don't even have rats?

Love the Valentine's set up!

My CN comes TODAY!!!!!!!

Today is cage cleaning day, so now I have to decide whether to put their pink valentine-y stuff in their current cage, or the CN! Can you move them into a new cage immediately? Or is that too stressful?

I was hoping someone would say that!!!!

Off to get all my other stuff done for the day so I can attempt to put it together when it arrives! I think a trip to the fabric & dollar store might be in order to celebrate as well!

I put it together myself also.  Not hard at all as long as it comes in not broken or bent.  I had to bend open one little bar.
