Hey everyone!

A while back, our old cage thread was accidentally lost in the site transfer. So we're starting fresh here.

Post any pictures and information you have of your rat cage setups here! Keep in mind this is a picture only thread, so please keep discussion off it.

Any chat or casual posts will be deleted. If you like someone's cage and want to let them know, you can send them a PM instead.

I'll start with mine.







This is my Martins R-680, which housed my 2 boys. All the liners and hammocks were made by me :)

O what a shame it got lost. O well, we'll just have to see them again :p

My latest cage pictures are actually a few months old, so they have new hammocks now, but anyway, here's mine:






I'm working on some really cute strawberry hammocks at the moment, so I'll have to post some new pictures when they're done :)

Just set this one up today! Spent four hours getting everything just right, and then discovered that all my rats can easily fit between the bars! Nooo! Happily, they're in a rat-proof room, which they usually romp around in all day anyway, so I'm not too worried. I'll have to put hardware cloth over the outside, I think.

Both of these cages are Petco Rat Manors. I have three boys in the left one and three girls in the right.
And since I am a SAHM, they get lots of free range time (in the bathroom, with door shut- to avoid them from getting to the opposite sexes cage and having any hanky panky through the cage bars!LOL!)

I want to add my weird thing, though it isn't a cage! It's a used jewelry display case, with internal dimensions of 58" long, 18" deep, and 30" high. Built some doors on it. Got it used for $30 and the extra materials to convert it cost me no more than $25 more.

Who says you can't make levels in an aquarium?! This is my 55 gallon, housing two females. The top is wire mesh (1/4 inch gaps) and the girls get tons of outside time. I use towels for substrate, spot clean multiple times daily and change the towels out/wipe down ever 3-5 days. I haven't had any issues with odor. IMG_8599.jpg IMG_8601.jpg IMG_8610.jpg

Petco Rat Manor

Upgrade from Super Pet "My Deluxe First Home for Rats" It was fine for the first two weeks, then saw all the "real" cages! So much more room, not to mention the white cage was almost hard to look through. Played tricks on the eyes...

And their new FN I just got last night half off at Petsmart! (it had sat on the shelf too long and they had it severely discounted! yay for me)
Since I practically just finished putting it together last night, the decorating is pretty lacking and bare lol. It will be fun project for a while :) Plus they get hours and hours of free time around the apartment daily.
