I had a jenny rat cage but my lodgers son came around and somehow managed to break it so i had to buy a new one at short notice! I couldnt find another Jenny rat anywhere so i got 2 biggish cages for the money i had at the time and have stuck them together! My girls are loving their new home as much as they did their old one lol i dont think they have noticed the change! I am in the middle of making a new hammock as i have 2 little chewers on my hands lol! Tell me what you think so far.....they love their igloo i have a pic of Missy peeping out and Pica is just behind her if you look closely!



Here is the new cage set-up!





I apologise if the pics are the wrong way up lol thats the way my phone takes them!!!

Very cute and creative! I would try to get that wire floor covered in linoleum though, much easier on their little feet ;). You'll have to show us the pictures once you get their new hammock made too. I find it helps to always be making some, as they go through them soooo quickly! You're girls are adorable.

still consider placing the linoleum or floor tile squares on the wire even if you use the fleece

this will provide them a solid surface to walk on which gives them a more secure feeling while contained in a cage.

question:
did you secure the lid on the white cage? Use some longer zip ties that will keep it from flapping around or simply remove it.

That is a clever cage. The igloo is way cool. Where did you get it?
Looks like you have a lot of room for hammocks too. I love hammocks. My girls have a ceiling tunnel hammock that they sleep in. It's so cute when they stick their heads out of the hole in the top.
