Cage Thread

I know we've all posted pics of our cages in various threads, but I'm really interested to see how you guys set your cages up, all in one place. Once I find the old pics I have of my female rats cages, I'll post em up as well.

I had to take the hammock out because it was pretty much chewed to bits!



I use carefresh ultra now because it's easier to litter train them...the poo contrasts very well with the litter and so its easy to just pick up and throw in the box.

Wow that's a nice set-up you have there! I only have pics of my lone male's "batchelor pad". He's gone now though.

Hmmmm....this is tricky...since I have a small bedroom with a ton of cages.

Largest to smallest
the RUUD

the stacked R-680's

The R-680 on top, the R-695 on the bottom

The 2'x2'x2' Superpet that is sometimes broken down and stored. I will be using it soon to foster 4 boys whose mom had to give them up and their new mom can't pick them up for 2 1/2-3 weeks.

The double decker modified dwarf bun cage

Hestia's dwarf bun cage (plain but she gets irritated with ladders and lots of toys )

Moth's R-660

the small Supetpet cage I use for hospital, QT and temp. maternity ward (never again!!)..its usually broken down and stored

This is the batchelor pad.

Treat shelf.

His pig.

His box.

His gigantic food bowl that he didn't have to share.

I absolutely love cage pics!!! hehe...i wonder if anyone has an actual room dedicated to their rats!

here are some of my cages in general....


this was my old setup where i kept Skrat, Alex and a few other little guys together


Skrat's first cage..this one is now put away


i know this isnt really in a cage category..lol, but this is where Constantine and Alex currently live


this isnt a cage either, but this is my mouse place on my mirror counter


another Skrat cage, when she was a pup


Skrat's cage with wooden floors atached


heres a pic of my first syrian's, maggie, cage, thats when i thought that these critter trails were awesome and in the end she free roamed my room, before i had rats


this was Molly's cage, my mouse, she was a rat in a mouse's body..and that was before i had rats and syrians..she free roamed the room then

the large one is our new cage, my dad and i made it (33x27x40 in). the tank topper is now empty and i am wondering what to put in it. my 2 rats used to live there and now moved up in life. the boxes are all connected and are my rats play palace. and the one is comparing my old with my new cage and the wall that i have them on

ask away, im more than happy to answer

when i just had mice and a hamster, the mice had the desk/counter space, while the hamster had a cage that she slept in but was free to get out and use the floor as she pleased

now i have my rats/mice/hamster thing so the hamster has a huge cage, while the mice and rats still free roam, Constantine my rat is a complete free roamer has the desk and room to herself with my mouse Alex (but he just uses the desk), and the rest of my mice live on my mirror counter, out of reach of Constantine
