Happy Ratty Christmas!

Merry Christmas from the Ratties!!

My clever mum made these xmas mice, although they look more like rats to me!

The boys have a brand new home: A glorious Explorer cage from Pet World Direct. It’s fabulous. It’s well built and sturdy, with plenty of room, while having a much smaller “footprint” than my previous Furet XL. The bar spacing is great – it would suit young rats from 6 weeks old. The price was fantastic. So easy to clean! The only draw back with the cage that I can see is that it’s very heavy, so it’s not so easy to transport – but you can unscrew it all and flat pack it. I’ve thrown these cage furnishings together, so it’s not as aesthetically pleasing as it could be, but here it is:

The rats are extremely comfortable in their new abode, as you can see here:

Today my lovely rats are mostly dreaming of eating Christmas dinner!

  1. HI.
    I just stumbled across your blog and wanted to say I love all your babies. Such cute pictures.
    Is that a critter nation you have? I am planning on getting one soon for my boys! :)

  2. Thanks Casey, I love them to bits. My cage is an Explorer, but I think it’s similar to a critter nation in size anyway. I had a quick look at your blogspot and your boys are heartbreakingly cute! I hope you have lots of fun with them!
