I had two rats, but one died so I only have one now I have two babies joining her on July 31 though (A white dumbo rex and a dalmation!) I have NO idea what cage I currently have, which for some reason bothers me to no end - LOL. I adopted my two rats from a pet rescue place and the cage was thrown in for free. It is a nice little cage and will fit 3 rats just fine, but it has two small doors in the front and one small door in the roof and it is SO hard to clean out. You can't even really spot clean easily without lifting the entire top off the base, but then the ramps hang down and get caught and...well... it's just a pain. There are two shelves and they're both plastic with plastic ramps. Maybe some time I'll photograph it and see if someone can name it for me!
The problem is the rat cage is in my son's room and he has a small room with only a small area that the cage can fit. The current cage is 29" long x 19 inches wide by about 29" tall. The length and width fit just perfectly btwn his bookshelf and his dresser. We could go taller... and maybe an inch longer and wider at most.
We don't have a ton of money to spend on a brand new cage, but I've had my eye out on CL and I'm keeping my eye out on amazon as well. And luckily I don't need the new cage immediately so I have time to shop around.
Looking at those dimensions, does anyone have a cage recommendation?
The big two-door opening in the front is my fantasy. It looks soooooo much easier to clean them out with that!!! I honestly dread cleaning out the cage now because trying to pry off those stupid plastic shelves from underneath and then trying to reach under and jam the plastic clips back on the sides to reattach them just causes my head to spin and I say all sorts of inappropriate things that my rats just shouldn't have to hear.
Thanks in advance!!!
