Re: Shopping trip to B&Q! (Home made toys)

Thanks for the suggestions :D Here's what I ended up getting: - rope braided and hung across the cage - flat tape/rope stuff twisted into another bridge/climby thing - plank of wood, put across the cage just below the blue shelf as a secret walkway/hiding place - Drain pipes, one on the floor, one l...

Shopping trip to B&Q! (Home made toys)

I'm going to go on a shopping trip to B&Q later on to find some bits and bobs to make rat toys with :D

Does anybody have any suggestions for what I should buy/make?

Or, equally, is there anything I should stay away from when making toys?

Re: Rookie error - cat litter :(

Thanks for the reply! :D I've left them in there for now and they'll get a lovely fresh cage tomorrow, with no nasty pine litter.

Advice for introductions please :)

Why are rats so cute? :) I was planning on getting 2 rats and now it looks like there will be 4 of them! I'm getting 2 rescue rats on Saturday (2 females, both 6 months old) and I ended up getting 2 youngsters today (they're also females, one is about 12 weeks and one is 8 weeks). The little ones ar...

Rookie error - cat litter :(

Ahh, I've been a very silly girl. I'd read that cat litter is okay to use as long as it specifically states that it is suitable for small animals. I bought some litter which specifies that it is safe for small animals, but when I got home I realised that it smells very pine-y and I'd also read that ...

Ahhh, Jemma, your cage is amazing :D :love:

That's definitely some good inspiration! I think I'll set mine up in a similar way.

Re: Meshing Marchiro Tommy T3?

Ah, it's definitely good to hear that there are people out there who have successfully housed girls in this cage :smileyrat: The cage looks brilliant! I didn't have time to put it together yesterday, but I did take a photo of the spacing (one in inches and onc in cm). I've also included a photo of h...

Re: Meshing Marchiro Tommy T3?

Ah, thanks for the comments :dumbogirly: (haha, I love those little smilies). The cage has arrived at my flat but I'm still back at my boyfriend's parents' house at the moment. I'm heading back to mine later on tonight so I'll attempt to put it together and have a look at the spacing. The girls arri...

Re: Meshing Marchiro Tommy T3?

Thanks for the reply :) I haven't got the girlies yet, they're 2 rescue rats both 6 months old, so they might be okay in the cage. You know I can't even find where I read the thing about galvanised metal ... maybe it was complete nonsense. Just thought I'd better check before I go meshing the cage w...

Meshing Marchiro Tommy T3?

I recently bought a Marchiro Tommy T3 second hand as it was only £40 and it was advertised as a rat cage. I thought it sounded like a great deal so I (stupidly) didn't do any research before buying it. I've now been told by numerous people that the spacing is going to be too wide for girl rats. I'm ...
