Re: new toys in the cage!

they'll figure it out - mine are just now starting to 'get' some of the fun stuff in their cages...however, they tend to find uses for it other that what I had in mind :lol:

Re: cage reno!!! updates and pics!

Is the rope dangling or tied at both ends? If i give my boys a dangling rope they ignore it, but if I tie it like a tight rope they either sit on it or use it to get into their hammocks. If your rats wont use the hammocks you could try putting a treat (or two or three...) in it, they'll climb in to get the treat and then realize how fun it is!

Re: cage reno!!! updates and pics!

well thhey used to love the hammocks! then i took them all out to wash them, when i put them back in they didnt use it anymore, so i will try the treats (thats what i did last time) but they could be useing it when im not around. ive only ever seen them sniff the rope, so ill tie it at the ends, but once again they could be using it when im sleeping or not there
