I've got a vintage 16" round birdcage that is currently housing two girls. It is similar to this:


Currently, I have their wheel hanging from the top, a bird perch underneath the door, a PVC T-tube, and four cardboard shelves. It's a really hard cage to decorate, because they pee while they're on the wheel, soaking everything below.

Cardboard shelves don't really cut it, though. They have to be changed pretty often and it's a big pain to cut them out at the right diameter.

I'm wondering if linoleum is strong enough to stay rigid with two rats on it? Or if anyone has any other ideas to make permanent shelving that can be wiped clean?

They're going to get a new cage as soon as I graduate & get a job, but this needs to suffice for another 4-5 months.

um um um. that's interesting, lol. how about you run out to your local DIY store like Home Depot or Lowe's and pick up a small roll of 1/2" PVC coated hardware cloth (ask someone, they'll know, it's usually green) for about $8 and a strong pair of wire cutters. you can cut the right diameter half-circles and such, and zip tie them in place. THEN you can put linoleum or something similar on top, just so that the linoleum has a base.
