The Rat Galleon

Due to the increasing podginess of my rats, especially Rocky who at times resembles a big dollop of ice cream, I’ve cut down on their “naughty” treats (like yoggies and cheese), and came up with the idea of making them an assault course/climbing frame/pirate ship thingy. Lack of space in the shed means that they don’t have as much opportunity to climb as they used to, therefore I made the climbing structure fairly tall (with levels, so they don’t fall to far). It was a simple construction made of bits of wood I had lying around, old bamboo sticks, heavy duty string I had in, old plant pots, cardboard tubing and the only part I actually bought was the ladder. The total cost was about £3.50! So here it is: THE RAT GALLEON!
