New Mookie Cage

I'll take pics this afternoon. Right now I'm just sp pumped I have to tell everyone. Month(s) ago when I found the wire rack shelf that I was going to make Mookie's cage with, I changed my mind. I was concerned it was a tad too big if we want to move this summer. Pat and I need our own place again, and we can only afford a one bedroom. Those that know me well, know I all ready have my big homemade degu cage, so fitting our stuff in a new place COULD be a challenge (but i like those!). So, I had made the wooden wire cage. They're in a post I made in January. As of yesterday, my guild has been chewing at me, saying the wooden cage was too small. It onle ended up being 3 rats long, 3 rats tall, 2 rats deep. That's not good, I decided. Mookie's only 10 weeks and all ready I feel he's 'crammed' in there? So, out comes the creative ideas. By midnight I was completely done changing the wire rack shelf into his new cage (a project I started then abandoned last month). I used his wooden cage for parts (of course), and I was VERY impressed that he stayed sleeping in his hammock the whole 7 hours I was working at this. He woke at a few points when his cage had no walls, and I was afraid he's get up and I'd have to put him in the bathroom. But he was SUCH a good boy, stayed in the hammock until I put it/him in the new cage. Then it was crazy time! lol he was so funny. I kept him in his new cage while I added its accessories. He was popcorning all over the place!!!! For a good hour I was slowly adding things, tickling him, getting licks (hehehe), petting him, he had a ball!!! He's set up now, right beside my degu cage, so they can see each other. It was funny, for a good hour, my goos were not impressed. However, I was up this morning to the good sleeping together on the shelf closest to mookie's cage, and mookie sleeping in a jean tube closest to the goo cage. And, my good are fine now, a little grumpy, but fine. They're sweeping with their feet and digging more, but they'll live. It'll keep them entertained, and mookie and the goos deserve some entertainment lol. Believe me you'll get pics. I can't wait, i just have things to do first

I had a male rat that lived alone due to aggression issues. I gave him a stuffed pig and he cuddled with it and beat it up and peed on it. If you end up having to wait, you can try that.

I love your pics. He's suck a cute boy!
