How did you make that heart cube, it is way cute.  I am still working on a regular cube, this last one came out only one side the wrong way, but way to big.  I was going for a lil bigger for a co-workers ferret but not that big  :yelcutelaugh:.  I tried making a regular heart shaped hammock for v-day but it didn't work either lol.

Drache, what's in the left-most food bowl?  It almost looks like store-bought seed mix  :P

It's actually a home-made mix. There are beans, pasta, whole grains, chopped veggies, some sunflower seeds, nuts, puffed rice, etc.

I love looking at all the cage setups.  I meant to order my CN today but i keep putting it off...sure is a lot of money to pay, even for an awesome cage...I have to money saved out of my expenses tho, so eventually I will get it lol.  I have been collecting things to fill the cage with, beds, fabric for liners and hammocks, beds, toys, etc.

cerulean.blue, I bought a 2-pack set of the white heart basket at Deals! I'm so glad to see that it works out so well!

Hahah thanks! I always feel guilty when I look at everyone else's pics because my cage seems kinda bare to me. But I actually have a few more than the recommended number of rats in there so I don't want to overcrowd them with too many toys. :P

It doesn't look bare at all! I love how bright and fun it looks, especially the barn.
Is that a deep pan you have? I really need to get one of those for my messy guys.

Yup! I ended up getting two sets for the price of one since the first set was bent really bad. But hubby managed to hammer them out and they are still usable.

Question for members who have the bird/cat toys in the cage -- do your rats like them?? I can't find anything my little stinkers will play with or chew on.  They turn their noses up at apple sticks, we had some jingly balls in there but they went ignored.  What to get fussy rats? Our cage really IS sort of bare, but anything we put in there just gets peed on and not played with.

Ping pong balls drive one of my boys crazy. His goal is to get them into his food dish, but they're too big to bite or grab! It's funny to watch!

What is that pan made out of or where did you get it?

Sorry if the question has been answered already. :)

That is made out of coroplast.  It is like a corregated plastic sheet.

You buy the sheets of coroplast and then cut to size, cut slits to fold up the sides and I don't know what people use to hold the sides together.  I used it once for a rabbit cage and used like packing take on the corners.  I think you could probably use some sort of hot glue probably also.

Sorry if it didn't make a lot of sense.  Hard to explain it I guess.

That heart cube is so cute  :heart:. Did you get that "Be Mine" pillow at Target?

The "Be Mine" pillow was from Walgreen's. They had 75% off their Valentine's stuff, so I got a ton of pillows and things for only $5!

How did you make that heart cube, it is way cute.

First, I made a heart shaped template. Then, I cut two pieces each of fabric and fleece from the template. I measured around the outside of the template and cut out a piece of fabric and fleece that was the length of the outside of the template, and about 4 in wide. After I sewed all the pieces that went together, I sewed the long piece around the edges of one of the heart pieces. Once that was done, I sewed on the second heart piece to the middle piece. Then, I turned the whole thing right side out.  I don't know if that made sense?

I have a Bass pan, but haven't put it in the CN yet, since it has to be painted first. It's been windy here, so not good spray painting weather. I ordered it from here.

It's he-ere!  The SO is picking it up from his parent's house now (I was afraid to have it delivered to our apartment building and let it sit outside all day). Pictures later!

EDIT: PICTURES!

It's a little bare right now, but we haven't finished moving everything in yet. They're really liking it!
I miscalculated the liner measurements, so we have a Joker-esque theme going on  :yelcutelaugh:

Mine is quoted to arrive between March 2nd and March 9th.

Sounds like we'll both be celebrating in the same week!

I was looking in the cage today, and could only find three out of four girls. I noticed a fleecey lump in the corner.  Natasha apparently decided she wanted to be warm, so she pulled back one of the corners of the binder clipped liner and was cocooned in it. So cute! Of course I caught all the cuteness on camera to post later!

I found it on ebay!  I'll look in my history and see if I can find who it was from.  Isn't it awesome???

I found the link for the person I got it from.  They have a hammock and pouch in the same fabric but the corner hammock thing I got they don't have anymore.  Here is a link to the hammock.
