Its been getting into the high 90's here where I live and although my room keeps cold compared to the other rooms in the house, I was wondering what a good way to keep my ratties cool during this horrid random heat wave. I change there water twice a day, making sure its cold.

what else can I do?

You can also give them frozen peas to go fishing with, some people give fruit in blocks of ice, a slab of marble for them to lie on...

As I understand it, rats lie with their feet up to cool off, if they are overheating, so that's something to look out for.

if you want to go with Donna's suggestion of a marble slab don't buy the one they sell in the pet stores. You can get a tile twice as big for less at a home depot.
Ooh, good idea!

Whats the chance of my ladies breaking into their pillow and having too much fun? Lol. Sounds good though!
Plenty, but you may get lucky... they may be so comfortable when they are cool that they can't be bothered to destroy it... we can dream, right? :lol: Seriously, though, you might have to repair it a couple of times until they get bored of chewing it, but it sounds like a good idea.
