The only problem with martins is the pee gets caked in the corners and unless you have a high pressure washer it's REALLY hard to get out. Also they don't come apart so when you do clean it your going to have to lug it outside or lug it to the shower. You'll probably want to cover the wire floors with something solid so the rats have something to stand on to give their feet a rest. If you do decide to go with a martins make sure its powder coated and you'll probably want to get one with a flip top lid. The doors on the sides really aren't that big. Martins are good people to work with when it comes to cages so you can always get one that's kind of custom made.

I don't have the tower,but I do have a Martin's cage.
And I love it.The only problem is,like Pinkie said,it is hard to clean! Especially when the dirt cakes into the corners and in the floor...otherwise I have no issues.

Thanks everyone!!!
Yea...We have a big clawfoot tub and it'll fit in there...
Well, there's a couple others I'm looking at also...
If I can sell my loft bed soon then I'm gonna get either the feisty ferret cage from petsmart
http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...ductId=2753641

or the Ferret Nation
http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...ductId=2752837

It all depends on how much money I have at the time I guess...

Look up feisty ferrets and ferret nations online and find the cheapest price. Print out the page and take it to petsmart. Most Petsmarts will do price matching. I bought a Ferret Nation for $150 when at Petsmart they sell then for $230. So I saved $80!

Also the if you have girl rats the Ferret Nation will have to be modified. The Feisty Ferret is okay but the ramps are really steep and only one door opens.
