Lets see your rat cages

How do your rats live the ratty life? What kind of cage set up do you have?

Here's my current one:

Critter Nation 2 level
Housing 6 male rats

You'll need to find a place like photobucket to house them, and then copy the image link for a forum from there.

Slightly off topic here, but when I first read the topic title (at a quick glance) I saw "cat rages"
..which of course just reminded me of why I tend to be a dog,rat, lizard, fish kinda guy. :-D

Look how fat those little chewy babies look! They must have been sweet and tasty. I'm glad Cindy's taking care of them.

I love your cage set up. The florescent color scheme is groovy!

I'd have gotten away with it too if not for you meddlesome kids! :-P

I must also add that those are a couple of nice rat homes!

These are awesome. Did you buy these at a pet-store, or build them yourselves?

Hey Trance, It's funny, but in my experience most adequate rat cages can't be found at pet stores. Well...I found a couple that are adequate, but not good, and they were overpriced for what you got. Mine is especially designed with rats in mind and I special ordered it from an online vendor for almost half off.

You may already be a ratty veteran and know your stuff, but in the event you're not and you're interested in finding or building a cage, I can hook you up with some links. I spend two years researching. Someone should benefit from my work. LOL
