Just a thought, but would it be easier to build shelves out of a light, solid plastic? That way you could just wipe them down, instead of having to pull fabric off every time it's time to clean!

Otherwise... my my it's huge! Lucky rats!

I love that photo of them in the Kleenex box. It's like Peep is saying "what other rat? There's just me, so you better just give me ALL the attention and yogies."

Hm... If you're going to use the wire for shelves (unless you go for plastic as Captain suggested), put some laminate flooring on the shelves and then put fabric on over that. Then the hardware cloth won't start to stink from the urine. When you make the door, the bigger the better!!! As long as they can't get out of it, bigger doors are always better. Even if you make a really big door that's kind of hard to open that you could use only when cleaning/decorating, and then a smaller one for getting them out on a daily basis.

And I would suggest fleece for the bedding. Not only does it make it cute and colorful, but it's cheaper in the long run because you can just keep reusing it. Plus it's better on their lungs, which is always a plus!

I would be sure to put a large sturdy door on the cage. u want to be able to have access to everything in the cage and u might want to add large items shelves, large toys, large boxes, etc

i'm guessing that because you mentioned home depot that you are in the states somewhere, so you'll be able to get fleece by the bucketload at places like joanns, michaels, walmart, and any other sewing/fabric store.

Re: My new cae! (unfinished, home made with pics =D )

aw thanks <3 They're about three or four months old. We've had a lot of trouble with a good door so we're just going to buy a wire shelf and use it, it will come out on the sides and not look that great hah but it will work and be nice and safe and easy to use *and just a little more money*
Aw crapola I'm in Canada maybe they have some of that here *walmart :)
Thanks so much everyone, I'll be sure to post pics when it's done so far we have one level in.
:)
