Well, I first had the top part as a cage for two rats, but it was a little small. I replaced it with the purple one but it was a little small for the third rat that I picked up. So how to solve this problem of two cages that are pretty close in length and width?

First I took the top of the old cage (black) and zip tied it securely on top of the purple cage. I used ten zip ties. Then I took a wire cutter and cut a hole in the top of the purple cage. I filed down the edges and arranged the hammock in the bottom so they could get to the top. I'd have to say it turned out pretty well. :)

According to the rat cage calculator I have room for another rat :D

The whole thing:



The new top level:

Yeah! Looks good!

One of my friends has three smaller cages stacked - it's such a great way to make use of old cages and give your ratties a spacious home.

I just rechecked the cage dimensions and took into account all the shelves and stuff and I can put two more in there! awwww
