I just emailed ferret.com and asked how long the 5 dollar shipping was going on for. She told me they may continue for the rest of June, so anyone wanting the FN should still check back there throughout June. Great deal!
Those FN cages are really nice... the only thing that I don't like about them... is you pretty much have t ohave your rats litter trained... There is no room for litter or shavings really... or very little and they will more than likely get kicked out of the cage...
They are very nice looking cages though... Just for me, it would not be practical.
That's really cool. Don't the rats chew up the towels? Or rather, doesn't it get expensive replacing them?
I have tried towel bedding before with rats that weren't litter trained... I wasn't too impressed with it...
My girls are over a year old now, and we are trying litter training... But I find that the smell is much easier to manage with a cage that has a deep bottom.
I sure do love the look of the FNs though... I would love to try one...
I actually used Yesterday's News in the bottom pan of my FN for a couple weeks. It worked much better than lighter beddings like shavings or carefresh. However, when I switched to towels the boys almost trained themselves.
My boys have chewed the towels a tiny bit here and there, but not enough so they're unuseable, so I switched to baby blankets and those were hardly touched. Now I've cut my own fleece and they seem to be leaving it alone. And think, the fabric is reuseable, wash and go!
