You guys are KILLING me here. I SO should not spend money on one, but I want one so bad! I only have 2 girls, so it would be logical to get the single, but I feel like it'd be too low and that would bother me but I cannot justify spending $140 on the single, let alone $240 on the double! AH. Now... how to make some extra money... or get someone to buy it for me lol.

I know how you feel! I almost had enough money to get one, but I took in some newborn puppies that some idiot 'breeder' was going to kill.... and all that money has been spent on puppy formula. I is broke. :BlueDumboBigEyes:

What's that orange cube thing on the shelf?

Ahhh, I love seeing all of you guys' cage pics. I feel like my CN is going to be really bare when I first get it set up. I better get to sewing! Mine should be set up by Tuesday... I hope. I've got to finish cleaning my room, and take down a shelf that's attached to the wall way better than I thought it was. lol

I got that orange thing at a second hands kids store.  It had the link toys attached to it and they fit inside it.  The blue door on the side opens and closes.  It is a little small but they still squeeze inside it to sleep!  It matches my orange stuff so I loved it!

I love how you have that blur in the first picture as somebody is zooming along.

Bah, today was my 1st cage cleaning day and my camera battery is dead!
It probably took me just as long to clean it as my old cage, but this is twice the size! MUCH easier to clean.

I need more stuff for it though. I have a wheel, an igloo, and then my favorite set from Chelsy including and envelope hammock, a corner hammock, a double decker, a large burrow hammock, a cube and a flat hammock. It still looked bare so I hung a fleece hat, added a cardboard box, and a little corner basket.

And I STILL have room. Off to raid the toybox!

I feel the same way. I only have two boys and dont plan on getting more or ever having more then say three at a time. And yet I am saving to buy the double. I just cant wait to move so I can buy it! I told husband that I wanted to move this year but I dont know if it will happen.

I got mine set up earlier than expected!! The top pan is cracked and the corner broke off, so I'm going to call Midwest to see if they'll send me another one, and the deep pan I ordered from Bass isn't here yet, but once I was done cleaning I just couldn't wait to set it up. lol So here is my first CN set up:

Whole thing, doors closed:


Whole thing, doors open:


Top:


Bottom:


Rats Added:








I am sooo happy with it so far! I love how I can reach everything in it, and I love the hanging hooks under the shelves. I still have tons of room to hang stuff in it right now. I need to make more of that camo set, and more of the other set I have, plus shop around for tons more toys! It was pretty easy to set up. I did it (mostly) by myself. My dad only had to help me twice.  :D

I got that orange thing at a second hands kids store.  It had the link toys attached to it and they fit inside it.  The blue door on the side opens and closes.  It is a little small but they still squeeze inside it to sleep!  It matches my orange stuff so I loved it!

Oh cool. I think I saw something similar at one of the stores around here, but it was too small for me to get it. I guess the boys could've used it to escape from the girls every once in a while though. lol

They do sometimes, but they used the comfort wheel a lot more. I like the flying saucer much better because it's so quiet when they do use it, but I guess they liked the comfort wheel more. Maybe one day I'll switch them back, but I was hoping the longer I left it in there, the more they'd get used to it, and start using it more.  :BlueDumboBigEyes:

I know.  ;) Yours was the one that made me go look for it. It took me forever to find one, but I really like it. The ratties like playing in it too.  :thumbsup2:

I tried getting them a Playskool car wash thingy, but they weren't too interested in it.  Apparently my rats don't like anything that everyone else's on here like!

Oh, wow!!  I LOVE that tree-house - it's adorable!  I finally conquered the scary sewing machine (I even learned how to fill a bobbin) and made my first set of cage liners for the CN.  At age 37, this was big step.   ;D   I kept forgetting to leave part of a seam open so that I could turn it right-side-out - argh.   :doh:   You'd think after the second time I would start to remember!  Next on the sewing list - cubes.

I love the idea someone mentioned earlier of using zip ties to create a secure place to clip items into the corners.  Otherwise the clip or hook just slips along the horizontal bar.  Great idea!!  And so simple to implement.

Pelli and the big girls, Pan and Zuzu, were successfully (albeit hair-raisingly) introduced this weekend, so I am looking forward to a full cage redecoration this weekend.  Thanks for all the ideas!

Congrats to all the folks who just got a new CN - enjoy!!

I caved and ordered a CritterNation. It came today! It will be the baby cage where all the babies will go into once they are 2 1/2 to 3 weeks old then when its time to wean - girls on one level and boys on another. I still need to add toys....






Edit: to remove the candid photos since you could not see much of the CN. Cute baby pictures exploring the CN can be found here http://www.goosemoose.com/component/option,com_smf/Itemid,118/forum,rat/topic,4049575.msg4524215/,#msg4524215

 :eek: I caved and bought one tonight. My bank account is suffering.. eeeeek. Oh well, it'll be worth it. My girls will be happy & my boyfriend & I will be happy because it won't take us half an hour to clean it like it does with our current cage.


I only got the single because there was no way I could afford the double, or justify it since I only have 2 girls. I figure, when the time comes that I have enough money to get the double, I can probably sell the single for $100 and buy a double!

I'm so excited. It's estimated to be delivered between 2/25-3/5. How long did it take everyone to get theirs? Especially those of you in/around southern california!

I luv the last pic, they look like they are smiling, so happy in their new home :)  The first pic of the babies looks like one of em' could get lost in that wheel lol.  I love the fabric, ex specially the flowers but they both match sooo well!

I bought mine the 18th, and it had the same date range for my delivery as well.  When I look at my UPS tracker though it says it should be here Monday (2/23).  Hopefully we both get ours soon!!
