Hey all. I'm getting the Rat Skyscraper from Martins Cage for my birthday in about a week. (Excited!!) I've seen this type of cage on the forums before, and I've seen it put together with zip ties. My question is, do the rats chew through the zip ties? If not, I am totally going to use zip ties to put the cage together. :D

My rats would chew zip ties, which is why I used wire to put hardware cloth on my FN (instead of the zip ties people tend to use) - so if your rats aren't big chewers it should be okay, but I'd keep an eye on the zip ties in case any do get chewed up and need to be replaced.

More often than not, rats seem to leave most of them alone. Honestly, I've never had ratties chew the zip ties on the Martin's, but I have heard of it happening.

That said, I would absolutely reccomend NOT using the c-rings it'll come with and trying zip ties. Keep the c-rings and if you need them, you can use them. :)
