Hello there,

First of all, I am so sorry that I dont reply or post anything of late. I am so busy with work and life and what not, I wish I did have more time to post.But I am looking at the posts sometimes so thats good. I am still learning bout rats :)

Secondly and this is the excitement. I went into a pet shop the other day to generally look around and buy my dogs some food and toys. Mum came with me and she said "Why not get that cage over there for when you get your rats." So knowing how my mums mind can change, I did. No turning back now I have the cage and am full on my way to getting ratties. Yaaay! How excited I am. I can almost feel their fur now. Haha! But I do want to do it proper so I must wait for a little while longer :p

Well thats my exciting news!

i have two of those cages... at the moment, one has the three little girls until they are big enough to move into the big cage with the older girls... and the other one i lent to my neighbours today as they got themselves two little girls (and a third one tomorrow if its still at the pet shop on its own) and only had an aquarium otherwise.

i suggest a hard plastic water bottle, such as "rat luxury" by pet one, when you get to that point. my girls have chewed through all the softer plastic bottles (which reminds me... i need to get a couple more). i dont know if you have pets paradise in your part of aussieland, but not all of them will have the hard plastic bottles.

That looks 'zactly like the kind we had for my guinea pigs when I was a wee tot. :)

If you happen to be in the States, do you know about how much that cost?

ETA: Duh, it says you're in Australia. :roll:

I currently have two females living in it, but when they get too big for it I move them to a bigger cage. I think it's a good cage for young girls and maybe males. Take out the bottom of the cage though, so they live in the littler, cause wires bad on their feet. Oh, but some females can manage to squeeze out of tiny gaps so be cautious. Are you getting male or female?

I'm sure you'll have fun with your rats. :D

Congrats. That cage looks like it has alot of head room for hammocks! Very cool. We are still waiting for our ratties. We get them on Thursday. It has been so hard to wait! I feel for you right now.
