It is big enough, but your ratties would probably be more comfortable in a bigger cage. It will do. But like i said if you want them to be comfortable. I beleive in going all out when it comes to cages so maybe somebody else could help a little better. *luck*

Yes, cages are ridiculously expensive. It's unreasonable. Good luck finding a new one.

I'd say it's probably fine for two boys. Boys aren't terribly active, and especially if you have them out a lot they should be fine. But bigger is always better so if you're looking for one you can afford think outside the box. I don't know what you have there, but here we have local websites that sell or auction used pet items. We got a huge four foot bird cage really cheap off of a website once. All we had to do was add a couple of $2.00 baking sheets as comfort shelves and a couple of $4.00 bird ladders and it was an awesome rat cage for way less than it would have cost me to actually buy a commercial rat cage that large. Check newspapers and garage sales too.

Yeah me and the boyfriend defently want a bigger cage because even tho my boys are VERY lazy we ain't in during the day alot but we have them out for bout 4-5 hours every night so yeah they are out alot.
But we would like a bigger cage for them because i think bigger the better i have tried alot of sites and i cannot find any at all
ive tried Ebay, amazon, and all of those sites are pet shops only sell the savic freddy 2 as the biggest and it cost me £85 which is very dear .
So i am asking please if anyone finds any cheap cages in the UK to please send me the link as if i cant find any they will have to stay in this cage .
thanks for your replys xxxx

Zooplus.co.uk sell some decent sized cages, one of them is called Jenny I think but it costs about 90 pounds (sorry, have 'lost' pound symbol from our keyboard!) I think they also sell it at Pets at Home for about the same price. I wouldn't rush out to buy another one if I was you, keep trying Ebay etc and I'm sure something will come up. You give them plenty of exercise when they come out, so you can afford to keep looking/ saving for something that will be perfect.
