Patty & Selma - a few new pics

Hi all.

I thought you may like to see how my girls are doing so I've got a few pics for you! I've now put lino down in their cage (apart from on the ramps) so hopefully that'll be a bit more comfortable for their little feet. They've also let me handle them a little and cheeky little Selma (I think it was Selma anyway!) climbed onto my head last night whilst I was doing the daily cleaning of their cage! Lol. They're still a bit jumpy when they're out of their cage but they're getting better!

Aww, they're darling. They remind me of a rat a friend of mine owned ages ago. She looked like them. (Love the names btw )

Just curious, what did you do to the bottom of the shelves?

It's self adhesive tile squares. I just cut them to size with a scissors then peeled off the paper on the back and stuck them down. Was quick to do and the ratties love it! Much better than that horrible wire flooring for they're delicate little feet! Lol

Thats a really good idea and something I never thought of! I never had problems with wire cages and ratty feet,but I bet it is uncomfortable!

You just gave me an idea...something I woulda never thought of! Time for a trip to the hardware store!

So you did it underneath too? Just making sure I understand! lol I can be really thick sometimes lol Especially when I've only slept a few hours... Did you know sleep is actually good? I had no clue lol

I THINK I found a cage that works btw. But if it doesn't I might go with your idea, money is a bit tight so it depends on how much a cage is going to cost me versus cleaning out an old tank in the garage lol

Thanks for the idea, it's really good.

No I didn't put it underneath, just on the top of the floors. That was mainly because of the doors on my cage though, and I sort of need the bars to be available underneath so I can hook the door open. If you can find a cage with the right bar spacing and big enough that's a decent price, the modifications really don't cost much.

Woo! One of my girls let me pick her up today without any struggles! Breakthrough! Ha ha. It's taken a while because they were 10 weeks old when I got them and hadn't been handled much, if at all! So that's made me very happy today. It's so nice to see progress!

I think your girls are adorable...however in some of the pics, first esp...i noticed that the height levels in your cages is on the low end..rats need a cage that they cage stand on their two feet comfortably and wont worry about hunching over..
