petstreetmall has free shipping!  ;D

I was refering to the shipping costs of selling the top half of my CN  ;)

I'd be buying the one level used from a member here  :)

Wait.. would I even be able to attach the top part of a double onto my single?? Or would I require extra parts? Hm...

You'd be able to attach it :)

The single and double are exactly the same, except instead of putting a top on the bottom half, you put a front and back piece into the holes. I know two members have made triples, and it worked just like an FN extension. I think one was coliekumar...it looked like her cage... I don't remember the other.

Mine was a single on top of a double level, so they were not connected, but you can also attach the top parts of a double onto a single in the same way, no problem.  I have tried that as well of course  ;)
Two girls have arrived :) Names coming soon.

IT CAME :blob1:. I just ordered it Sunday and it came this afternoon. I have it set up, decorated, and rat infested  :BlueDumboSmileTongue: already. The little boys are in the top and my soon to be spayed girls are in the bottom. I'll get pictures as soon as I figure out the camera. (It's like a dinosaur.)

Possibly! ;D

Still convincing the parents to let me buy the one level. My four are so active, they really need the extra space. First though, they want me to try opening my cage back up to a double. I'm hoping that it doesn't go well(as long as my Bella-boo doesn't get hurt  :heart:) so that I can get it. *crosses fingers*

If I do decide to, I'll let you know :) Though I imagine shipping would be atrocious :(

Wait... I don't understand why you can't just have the double permanently separated... I must have missed something.

My four use to live in  double, but in early June Bella suddenly lost use of her back legs so I down graded to a single. She gets around very well now and can climb up to the shelf without a ladder, so I want to expand their space, even though they *techinically* have enough space now. I don't know how she'd far in a double tall, as if she wanted to get to the second level, she'd have to do alot of climbing, and I"m worried about her getting hurt. I want to get the second one level to make a double wide so that she'd have to only climb only to get to the shelf like she does now.

I hope that clears it up! ;D

I did a major deep cleaning of both my room and the rat cage tonight. I re-ratproofed too, which means I just got rid of more of my stuff. Every time I clean my room, it becomes a little more the rats' room.  :doh: I'll have pictures sometime in the near future...
I am ratless. Someday I will own rats again.

Rats across the Bridge: Penny, Heidi, Jerry, Teddy, Lucy, Sophie, Silhouette, Jupiter, Ozy, and Rorschach. I love you all and hope we will someday meet again. :heart:

Your girls are so cute, hotto!

I cannot believe I still haven't posted any pictures of my cage... Such a slacker I am!  I'll have to clean it tonight/tomorrow and make sure it's all matchy so that it looks GM worthy!

For those of you who put a lot of hammocks in your cage, how do you do it?  I've been experimenting with different organisations of the cage (I like to switch it up a lot, change the levels around etc. so the rats get a variety of habitats and usable space), and can usually fit three to five hammocks on each level, and then only a few other things, including their litterboxes (which are admittedly huge), igloo, food bowls, water bottles, and toys.  What size are your average hammocks?  I've been making mine extra large lately, because my four seem to love to squeeze all into one hammock and I thought they'd appreciate some extra space, and for me XL is about... 10" by 18-24".  That just doesn't leave a lot of space for other things in the cage, I guess.

Thanks! It's from tysetsu. :)

Sooo everyone was out playing while I was cleaning cages. When I clean cages I leave the doors open because it's easier and since nobody is in the cage I don't have to worry about escaping. I walked out of the room, left the door open, and when I walked back in, I found this -

Every body gets their fabrics at different stores. Joann's has a lot of sales, and a lot of people by from there. Hancock is also popular. Just depends. Wherever is fine.
