Where do you keep yours? :)

Post by Zoundz on Tue Jan 10, 2012 2:17 am

I've just realised I have no pictures of our shed Sad but many of you have been in and seen it anyway Smile Must get some new photos! For now, I thought I'd share some old ones of our rat room when we were in Swansea. I do miss it - it was so comfy - spent half my life in there!

Well I'm lucky enough to have space in the spare room in my house so I keep my two boys in there, My other half's girls (both deceased now unfortunately) stayed in the bedroom which was sometimes unpleasant as they kept digging and nesting and there was bedding out on the floor every morning but they deserved the comfort of a lovely cosy room away from the boys so we lived with it Smile

My two girls have a large three storey cage in my sitting room, but when I'm in watching TV they get on the sofa and they love running around, taking in all the smells and trying to nab whatever we're eating. They also spend a many evenings in our bed, which is Blanche's favourite place. :-) But Blanche also rides around on my shoulder a lot.

Our lot live in the spare room. Our living room is far too hot for them & because it's open plan with the kitchen it can get smokey and stuff which wasn't good for little lungs.
The room is a mess so there's no pictures of it, but this is their cage:

Top: Girls.
Left

Right

From the side


Bottom: Boys.
Left

Right

From the side


Unfortunaltely the boys' is a little boring because Albie's HLD is getting bad and I had to lower the platform & ball down etc this week so he doesn't fall and can still get about. I'm avoiding the retirement cage for as long as I can.
Also, the room gets pretty dark at night, so hope you can see the boys cage okay.

Thank you for deleting those last two attempts to put pics up. I'm a disaster when it comes to image url's. My guys will be two soon bless them. They still look really well Smile

Could not believe it that they will be two soon, they look really great and youthful, I read somewhere that 2years in a rat is equivalent to 45yrs in a human person. Enjoy the birthday celebrations!! Steve

I think age equivalents depend a lot on the lines - 2 for our lot is nearer 70-75 in a person.

Well I'm going all out on their birthday celebrations and i'm gonna make them a special rat cake lol! It's the very least I can do as I'll have to leave them for a month Smile. I would love if they lived over 3 years. Cleo was 3 years and 1 month when she sadly passed away in November so fingers crossed. I admit these pics might not be the most recent. I'll have to put up more recent ones but they still look the same. Little stunners lol!

I would love if they made three too! They would be the first rats from our line to make 3!

Rat house

Post by WordVomit on Wed Jan 25, 2012 10:46 pm

I keep three of my rats (Julian, Horatio and Roy) in my old wardrobe! Me and my dad built it. It's gigantic!

We are currently making the second wardrobe livable for my other 2 boys (Dave and Wallace)

Dave and Wallace are currently living in a black cage, it's too small for them but as it's all in my bedroom those two get to sleep in their cage but adventure in my room most of the day.

Lots of cleaning! All my loved goods are kept in plastic sealed boxes under my bed.

there is nothing they won't chew or pee over! Hehe. I do love the company though.. Wallace sleeps in my bed! I have two duvets and he sleeps between them

I'll try and get a pic up of the wardrobe. Smile
