Re: Joey, I will never kiss you again :(

About a year ago a wasp flew in to my room and into the rat cage... I was really scared it would sting one of them so was wheeling the cage around the room like a lunatic trying to get it out but while I was doing this one of my siamese girls (can't remember who) ATE IT!!! I was so worried but she w...

prednicare seemed to really work well for my Peppa for a while anyway.

Re: This may be a stupid question...but...

Personally I'd just chuck them all in with all the stuff in there! They'll have a great time exploring. The reason people introduce cage furniture slowly after introing a group is to reduce the risk of rats becoming territorial over an item/hiding in somewhere and not interacting properly etc. etc. ...

Re: Free ranging outside?

ooo I didn't know any wooden ones were foldable! Thanks!!

I actually think I might have been an absolute idiot and we have one in my parent's garage. I'll check tomorrow. Exciting!

Re: Free ranging outside?

I don't really unfortunately... only cage with a detachable wire top I have is a Furet Plus and for 6 or 8 rats I don't know how fun that would be. I suppose it would be a start to see what they thought of it. The idea I had in my head was to put them in the carrier with comfy things and some food a...

Re: Free ranging outside?

I think the bar spacing on that looks a little wide im afraid. You could have a look on ebay/preloved for second hand ones-the ark style ones which are usually tiny and rubbish for buns/guins would be ideal :) Thought so, what a pity. I forgot to mention before that it really has to be foldable too...

Re: Free ranging outside?

guineapig runs are so expensive!

Any idea if the bar spacing on this is too wide? http://www.equinecaninefeline.com/catal ... -4426.html

Re: Free ranging outside?

Hmm true, that is a pity as the only outside space I have at the moment is a horrible tiny yard which the landlord stores scaffolding in and is littered with (other people's!) cigarette butts - not really an option in other words, and I'd love for them to see outside! I wouldn't bring them to a busy...

Re: Free ranging outside?

I've been thinking of piling mine into a carrier and bringing them to the park and letting them have an explore. I've always been afraid of the possibility of them catching something from wild rats though.... is this not as big as issue as I've assumed?

Re: Aurora 600

The wheel is when I notice the noise most, and also when Luna shakes it on purpose. I suppose it rattles a little when they jump into a basket or something but that's not quite as annoying... :lol: It is only the actual door rattling, it's not as if the whole cage is really wobbly so I hope I haven'...

Re: Ferplast Duetto - Opinions?

This is the third time tonight I'm advertising this cage but have you thought about the Aurora 600? That doesn't look bad, but I don't think I could own a cage where the doors don't fully open anymore. I'll probably just stick to the explorer for now, I might get a John Hopwell tray made for it... ...

Re: Aurora 600

Do you have wheel-addicts? If so, yes, it is definitely noisy enough to wake someone up. I have babies who never stop running in the wheel and it shakes the cage terribly and makes so much noise! But yes, I really don't think that it is something that would be hard to solve. I just thought the shelv...

Re: Ferplast Duetto - Opinions?

Just out of interest, what don't you like about the explorer? Don't get me wrong, its not a bad cage, there are just a few annoying things about it. Its rather heavy, which makes it a bit of a pain to move around. I have had to use an ikea storage box on the floor, though I could just get a replace...
