So some people have been telling me that my rats cage size would determine how big my girls got. As I don't want them to have too small of a cage I was thinking about expanding on what I've got now.



I don't have alot of money for a new cage so I was looking for some simple and cheap ways of giving them more room.

You can go down to a hardwear store and buy yourself some fencing (I believe its 12-14 guage) for a couple bucks a yard and use Zip Ties to hold everythign together. Very cheap and easy way of expanding a cage. Here are some pictuers of mine and what I did:

This is how I did the doors -




And just a cute picture to end with, hehe!



All this cost me only about $35, not bad IMO. :)

oh yeah! If you do decide to do this dont forget to shave down all the sides so that nothing is sharp or pokey, if you have a drumel tool that will work, but my BF and I did it all by hand with some special metal shaver thing and it sucked balls. lmao
