Today when searching craigslist for a cage i found a Super Pet Habitat Defined Rat Habitat for sale. For $20 i got the cage, a water bottle, a random assortment of toys, 2 food bowls, a bag of bedding, a bag of food, multiple bags of treats, some cage cleaning spray, and a carrier. Now i have a few questions of course before i get my rats to make sure this cage is safe.
1. One of the toys is a rubber dog toy...is this safe?
2. There is a bag of lab blocks food and a container of seed food. Should i use the seeds as treats instead of food?
3. For those of you with experience in this cage, i was wondering if its a good idea to remove one of the shelves to make more room? Have any ofyou done this before?
4. Lastly, i am going away for christmas. Should i wait to get rats or is it ok to get them now? I do have a trusted pet sitter but want my ratties to be comfortable even though christmas is still months away.
Thanks everyone! I would have posted pictures but my ipad wouldnt load them :/
I hope i didnt post this multiple times... My ipad wont send this post. Ugh !
