Some ropes in there would be cool :) I get dog toys from wilkos for a couple of quid each, or there are ratty ropes or bird rope perch type things :). Mine also like these cargo nets http://www.ratwarehouse.co.uk/shop_deta ... =422&cat=6 and giant wheels (silent spinner or wodent wheels are the ones I've used).

More hammocks. You can hang them to the underside of the shelf to maximise space. Perches such as lava ledges http://www.amazon.co.uk/Super-Pet-Ledge ... B00176F466 , wooden wine racks which have been plastikoted, tubes like these http://www.equinecaninefeline.com/catal ... -1001.html , cardboard boxes, pinatas for hiding food. The list is endless

You could put some big tubes round the edges? Like off of the carpet rolls?

I have a couple of them round the edges of the cage (I have same cage) I just stick em on with cable ties...

Also I found some excellent little folding desk basket thingies that are excellent too and I think they were only a £1 in the stationary shop (I actually found a link to one!) http://www.ryman.co.uk/0161208419/Reall ... re/Product I just stick them on with cable ties too, and when you take them out the y fold up so they don't take up any space :) My ones attached like the grey basket in the bottom of Retrolemons cage. (I'm rubbish at putting pics up myself)

Don't be afraid for it to look messy or a bit cluttered - thats what rats live for remember! :lol:
