Im a little low on money right now since buying them a cage and a bunch of new toys, but my ratties are startign to get more playful. They especially love the toilet paper roll? haha so what are your DIY rat toys !
heres a view of my cage at the moment
Cardboard boxes as huts. You can fill some toilet paper rolls with some food and fold it up. But that will be gone in an hour so it may not be the most money efficient. You can buy fleece on sale quite cheap and make your own hammocks. Or you can put in an old winter hat or jacket and they can explore/sit in them/pee on them. Lol. Hope my ideas are helpful.
Ive been making my own hammocks! brought some of the dog fleeces from Poundland and ordered a grommet set off ebay they are soooo much cheaper than buying them ready made! especially if you have the patience to hand sew alothough ive ended up buying a sewing machine as hand sewing too me atleast an hour for a 15inch square lol
