We've seen lots of pictures of cage set ups and play areas, but where do keep your rats' cage(s)?

Our rats' cage is in front of the fireplace, in our living room. This is where we spend most of our time, as we are home all day. They can see us from there, they can see everything that's going on and they can watch the tv from there... well, Ratty can... LB can't see for squat! :lol:

The dining room. Nice open corner there for FN, plus it's directly outside my bedroom, so I'm always over there.

I have a book shelf with one large cage on the bottom, a smaller mommy cage on the middle then my boys big cage is at the end of my bed :D. The rest of the cages are outside in the rescue room.

I keep my three girls on top of my armoire where the scenery is at its best. we're in that room most of the time as well.
When we get our own place my boyfriend and I are thinking of investing in FN cage so we could have some boys as well.

On my nightstand. Works great because my desk, computer, etc. is in my room, so when I'm in there working in the evening I can let the girls out to play on my bed.

our cages are in the little alcove where the bedroom/bathroom doors are, yet still in the living room where we spend most of our time. they can see and hear us all day and night, except for my daughter, who sleeps with her bedroom door shut.

I feel so silly saying this, but our rats have their own bedroom now LOL. We got into a much bigger place and always wanted a separate rat room. 12 cages fit nicely :)

My cage is in my bedroom, on top of an old comode. This is where I spend 99% of my time, so it's ideal for playtime.

You spend 99% of your time on top of an old comode? 8O

(Just kidding! ;))

My rats (and mice, and rabbit) reside in my bedroom :)

I really hope by "commode" you mean a small dresser or something, and not a toilet!

My rats are in my living room which is where all the "action" is. I am home pretty much all day on most days, so they get lots of attention. At night they come out for "free play" on my couch and two end tables. I let them run all over me as I sit on the couch and play with them. The dog joins in and its really a fun time for all.

My two cages are on top of my sewing desk (that I would really like back!) in my room, until my grampa finishes building my two freestanding cages. They'll still be in my room though, cuz I need to keep the cats away when I'm not around to supervise (I don't think the cats would go after the rats themselves, but they've jumped on and knocked over the girls' cage more than once *eyeroll*)

mine live in my room as my mom has a super-nose and thinks they reek even though their cage is cleaned every other day. :p i leave a window cracked for fresh air and a little light for them when i'm not there, but they get free-range time in my room once or twice a day for at least an hour each, as well as shoulder time and tv-time, etc. :D

when I get my ratties, they will be on a short bookshelf in my room.
I would have them in the living room or something, but the TV and music would probably bother them. Plus, my dad wouldn't like seeing a big rat cage in the middle of his space. (he's weird about that stuff)

Six of my boys live in my kids bedroom, Fizzgig (who is going back to the breeder in about a week) lives in the living room, my five girls and two boys are in my rattie room (really big walk in close i converted into my computer room/rattie room) and Eight fosters are also in the kids bedroom but they are leaving next week too. Eventually I will have a rat room but that is when we start building the house which is not for a while.

Right now two of the girls are on medical watch and they are in the living room with me but as soon as they are feeling better they will be going back with the other three girls in the ratty room.

Usually my rats are in the front room. Sometimes they are in the bedroom though, as in the summer, that's where the absolute best a/c is. :)
