Desperatly Seeking cage ( any ! )
« on: January 16, 2010, 11:11:49 PM »
So i've recently found myself in the situation that I have more rats and mice than I can handle . It's all because I have a friend that continuoslly has rodents that she gets and that need forever homes >< So i've become the person that chooses to 'take them off her hands'. *Sigh*  :doh: And although I adore the ratties , I have only 2 really suitable cages , but 5 rats and 4 mice ! Before you think "you're so irresponsable!" just know that if I had not taken them in the would have been turned into feeders . Couldn't let that happen  :BlueDumboBigEyes:  So I have found homes for 2 mice and 2 rats  , but I am keeping two rats and two mice , so I need a suitable cage . My 2 rats (houdini and Daisy ) are currently living in a cage suitable for only 2 rats , and I will be soon adding a third one into the mix .
So long story short , I am seeking
~ A cage suitable for 3 rats
~ Under or around $40 (( willing to negotiate of course ))
~ In the manassas virginia area , will drive a reasonable distance to collect .
Help is MUCH appreciated .   :heart:  :bow:  :confused:

Have you tried Craigslist?  I found a few cages in your area and price range.  None are perfect, but they might suffice until you can save more money.

If you can't find any one cage that's big enough for three rats, you could also take two smaller cages (the one you're using now and another one that's a bit too small) and attach them together in what I call a Frankencage.  If you like this idea, I can help you figure out the logistics of it with a bit more info.

Oh , with a little . . . lot . . . of tlc , I think that that last cage could become a nice little extra cage  :BlueDumboSmile:
Though i've already found one on ebay just a little over my price range I think i'll look into buying that one too . Thanks alot !
