I finally have my cage done, I think it turned out pretty good. I still need to get a lot more accesories and I'm in the process of sewing a couple of hammocks.

Its 68" tall, 30" wide, and 12" deep, I know its not too deep but its the best I could do with the wood I had to choose from.

Tell me what you think.

They seem to enjoy it :D

i think the two of them will have a ball in it! just wondering though, what did you use to coat the wood to protect it from urine? there seems to be an interest in making grottos right now and the coating of the wood is an important step. i'm sure someone would appreciate the information on how its working for you and i'm just plain curious

WOW! Nice cage.

My question is, how long do you think it will take until there's like, six more ratties running around in there? GRM's coming for ya!

As soon as I can find a breeder or rats needing rescue! Haha.

Yup. Everything is sealed, I did not want to take the chance of having pee soak in to anything, because that would smell horrible. Haha.

Im starting mine this weekend. I'm using yours as inspiration if that's alright? But i think I'll make it like a little more than half yours' size. Where did you shop? Lowes? home depot?
