If the grids are smaller than 1x1 than it should be fine :D. Actually, a fair amount of rat people like using them, I would if I could find smaller grids locally.











Hope these are enough examples fo ryou ;). Sorry for the picture overload, a friend of mine collects pictures of different cages.

I would say zipties, as those connectors can leave some extra space ;). Don't want to risk babies getting out!

can i use towels as a bedding and just lay it across the bottom.
Depends on how actively your rats dig! I made a temporary cage for my girls out of that material, it worked out pretty well I think, except that they looooved to get in between and under the layers of fabric I'd used, and then the pee wasn't absorbed, and it was just a general pain.

And I used the connectors- not sure how young your rats are, but mine were about 6 weeks, and I didn't see any chance of escaping, myself.

*don't mean to take over* but reachthestars do you have instructions on how to make those cages??? I think that might be the solution to my problem!
