I went to the dollar store today I baught Jay and Bob a Baby Bath teddy bear (Purple Hippo to be exact). The moment I put it in their cage Bob goes over and starts grroming it as if it were Jay or another rat, hehe. I found him laying right next to it and he soon fell alseep after snaping a few shots.




Heres a couple random pictures of Jay cuteness. :)

What is your floor made out of? With the circles?

Its floormats I made to fit my own cage.

The fleece is under a heavy duty plastic for decoration, and under that is kitchen grip mat so that it stays in place. I wanted something squishy and soft to walk on, but can easily be wiped down if one of the boys pee/poo on it.




On top of these I add real mats/ towels for them to walk on and sleep on if they want.

Umm, I have no idea about the old lady plastic...LMAO, but I got it from OSH; they usually have it in the back where all the wire and fncing is. The board I had used was that construction paper kind, its not construction paper though and its not that foam bored, its just like a cardbaord type. You can get it at Michaels, but I got mine from Rite Aid.

I suppose you could use any type of board you wanted though. The only reason I used the type of board I did, was becuase it was blendable and I figures it would be easier to take in and out of the cage.

neatness. maybe someday when i have money to spend on extra things like that i will make some, but for now their fleece blankets will have to do.

They are so easy to clean, lol. I spot clean daily its great to just wipe things up when I need to. I dont use this alone tho, I set down a few hand towels and little mats I made down so that they still have something soft and warm to sleep on. :)

That is just sheer brilliance! I'll be looking out for some "old lady plastic", for sure :D

You know, if they're that easy and cheap to make, you should sell them on Etsy. You could make them to order, size and shape wise, too. :)
