i got a new wheel (which the rats are terrified of) and re-organized the cage enjoy!

ozzy investigating her wheel that she's scared of


the wheel and the corner hammock


ozzy playing in poop (the rock is to hold down the box)


ozzy does not approve of the flash


looking for food and exploring at the same time


bottom of the cage (not a great pic)


they need to grasp the concept that they lay on the hammocks, not the other way around :p


sorry i dont have lots of pics of hyper, my next post in meet my rat i s full of her when we were playing our game today :)

Ozzy is so cute! I love beiges, and barebacks ^_^

That wheel looks really small though. Is it an 8"? Your girls will need at least an 11" wheel, preferably 12". They need enough room to stretch out to actually run. In a wheel too small, their backs will bend too much. I'm not even sure they'd use it, but they might get hurt if they do.

lol yeah, I had that problem when I first got rats. I made some hammocks for my two girls soon after I got them without comparing it to them, and they ended up waaay too small.

btw, where do you get a 14" wheel? Do you know what brand it is? The biggest I've ever seen is 12" and I feel like I ask this everywhere someone mentions a bigger wheel but never get any answers ^^;;

You have a really nice cage! :D

My cage is hopeless! :roll: No matter how much I try to re-arrange or decorate it, it stills looks boring!

get a couple of old t- shirts, rip em up and make a rope! hang a basket from the top and fill it with tissue, cut off a sweater arm and hang it to the side (thats what that big white thing is) do you have a pic of your cage?

The biggest wheels I know are 12" (Wodent Wheels, Silent Spinners, and Comfort Wheels). I've never seen any bigger, in stores or online, but I've heard people mention 13" and 15" wheels. I just can't seem to get an answer about what kind/where to get them ^^;

Search up chinchilla wheels. They come in all sizes. I've seen 12, 14, 15, and 16, as well as the rather interesting 'flying saucer'.

Did you ever have one of those things on the playground where one person would hold on and the other would run as fast as they can and spin it around and around until the first person flew off into the dirt?

Yeah, I think that might happen. :lol:

On the bottom, right side wall?


You could probably use the eight as a bed if you took off the stand.

thats a good idea, the stand would go under the litter box with the wheel i want, but i dont think the rats care really

I have a 12" Comfort Wheel, only it's teal (I'd rather have purple too!). It's really noisy though, and kinda flimsy. If you can, get a Silent Spinner or Wodent Wheel instead :D

I didn't really consider that bigger wheels would have bigger prices. Some big chinchilla wheels I just looked up were nearly $100 x_x;;
