LOL - only one doe, my adult siamese "Cherry" would explore. All the rest had no idea what to do with the ramps- and if they ventured down one, they would be 'lost', lol.

Looks like they have lots of space! Great job on the cage. For the ramps you might want to add bumps for them to step on. They might have trouble going up and down such a smooth surface.

Here is a picture where you can see one of the ramps in my cage:


It's just small blocks of wood screwed into the longer piece. It makes it easier for them to walk on.

Yeah I have more green fabric for hammocks, and I need to make them a bunch of toys. They were all in tanks before and if I put toys in with them they would not have any room... So looks like I need to go SHOPPING!

I just hot glued fabric the entire length of each of those ramps. I had meant to do that before but wanted to use the staple gun which we couldn't find... I guess the glue is better, though, because now it doesn't sag when they climb it. Which, they are climbing it now, which is good.

Oh, thanks for that link! I had totally forgotten about that site, it was in my bookmarks. I've given them stuff to chew on and a shoebox to hide in... Will make them more toys soon!

No problem !
Also .. alot of people find that its HARD to hang hammocks .. so if you get like a pole and put i along the top .. or a washing peg line it will make it easier to hang hammocks .. or use little nail hooks! GOOD LUCK & have fun!
