I may be moving to New Mexico in the near future. What cage would be best for traveling for about a week for 2 mismatched size Rats. Must have narrow wire as my 4 month old is real small.
I would be giving them 1 to2 hour hotel bed play each day, and I want to put the cage up on the front seat near me.

Eek! I normally use my 'starter kit' cage for travelling, but not for that long of a period... That's going to be rough... Maybe a normal or slightly smaller cage (seatbelt up for safety! :lol: )?

that's what i would say too forensic just make sure it is belted up whenever i go to the vets i use a cat carrier for my big boys so maybe you could get a medium sized dog carrier?

Thats what I thought too. I have 3 or 4 Mid sized rabbit cages but the bar spacing is too big, I need something like that my little one can't wiggle through.
I guess the cage doesn't have to be too big, they sleep during the day its the nights when they want to party, maybe I can lock them in the bathroom with toys, food, water and a warm igloo and clean up in the AM.

Maybe you can find something to put over the bars, temporarily?

yeah, i'd try covering up the wires for transport, but the bathroom play sounds like a fab idea. good luck with the move! i'm glad you're taking your pets with you, i hate when people leave animals behind just because they're moving. your babies don't understand why you left them! :(

Thanks for the input, I'll dig up some wire mesh and cover the cage. I thought about the bathroom idea but someone told me those Motels spray tons of bug and rodent poison so I'll stick with supervised bed exercise each evening till I get to NM.
