I have been pouting about not having my double wide for about a month now, so I decided that was probably long enough and I should post pics again.

Boys Cage:







Girls Cage:





Two girls have arrived :) Names coming soon.

You didn't always have base pans right?

Nope  ;)  Birthday present to myself!

Violet:  Its just a pocket hammock on the shelf (It is not fit to size)  I am sure you could make them that way though!  My boys love pocket hammocks on the floor to cuddle in, especially the hairless  :)

I can not find my cam anywhere   ???  Which is sad because my cage looks really nice this time.  I just wanted everyone to know that we had the super cheap towels at my Walmart, plus they had really nice 50 cent cloth placemats that matched the brown towels!

Colie, what happened to your double wide?

It does not fit in my new apartment.  We had to rent sight unseen and it is much smaller than it was made out to be by the management company.  On the plus side, it is *much* easier to wheel around the 2 CNs when they are not attached!

That's neat, Boots. :) Is that colored Carefresh? You may begin to notice that it gets a little pricey to keep buying it and end up switching over to fleece/flannel/towels. ;)

That's where I got my bowl too!  ;)
And yep, it is colored Carefresh. I actually didn't notice it matched the cage until just now. It was the only kind they had left at the little petstore where I shop. I don't like buying from the chain stores if I can avoid it.
I have green Carefresh in the freezer right now for next week (again, the only kind they had left), so it won't match anymore after that. Oh well. 
I wish I could use towels or fleece, but I'm worried it would stink really badly. My boys aren't litter trained unfortunately. I have to change the fleece on their shelves at least twice a week because they pee and poop all over it.
Maybe I'll buy more fleece and try it for a week to see how they do. Couldn't hurt to have extra fleece if it doesn't work out!  :)

I would try towels, Boots. I get mine at Walmart for $2.50 each and they fit the bottom shelves perfectly when laid out...I always double mine up because my rats like to burrow under them...I also don't pin them down because they will shred them. I think towels work really well for odor control.

A little late to be posting this but I found my cam.  Just wanted to show off the 50 cent placemats.  I took these pics during the day, which I never do.

CN finally came today, I just can't figure out how to get the pictures on my post.  It's not cooperating with me.

are you going through a photo hosting site (such as flickr)? basically, your photos need to be hosted somewhere online (stored somewhere on a site), so that you can get the image address to paste in between the forum image code. you can get the image location for your photo from the site hosting it (for example, flicker gives you image locations for 3 sizes of your photo), or sometimes if you have the rights to a photo already hosted, you can just right click on the photo and click "copy image location". this would be the code to post an image of my current avatar, for example.

 
Code: [Select]

Thanks for the info, lets try this again. The CN finally showed up and here are the first pictures.







Alot of pink for the boys but the cage is in my daughters room.  I was hoping the skulls would offset all the pink  ::)

New cage for the boys!!

Peeking out ;)

The brothers

Morty is turning into a real MAN.

Crappy picture of the two next to each other.

ALSO, have you guys had issues with the 2 level CN becoming the Leaning Tower of Rats?
Mine is leaning to the left...

Mine leans very slightly, try setting a glass of water on your floor to see if it's level. That or the base could be tweaked ???
Also, your boys are so cute n__n

When you put your CN together did you use a rubber mallet?  I had a couple of spots that were slightly bent from shipping and didn't fit just right. While putting it together I noticed the left was just a little out of whack.  I hope pounding the pannels in like that won't make it really hard to take apart and deep clean later...

I did that too, and it was easy to take apart :) I used a flat head screw driver as a lever to help get the peices apart. I wiggled it up and down a bit to unlodge the peices. It only took a few minutes to take my double apart. You won't have a problem :)
