View Full Version : C&C for pets that chew anything?

06-22-08, 09:45 am
;) Hi everyone, I'm new here! I'm considering building a CC cage for my rats, and potentially a rabbit I might be adopting later in the year. Does anyone here keep anything other than guineas in their CC cages? How do you keep them together? Dont the rats/rabbits etc just chew through zip ties? I have the chewiest rats on the planet and I cant see them respecting cable ties unless I used about a million. Does anyone have any other ideas regarding keeping the grids together?

The connectors that come with the grids.

I have 3 adult male rats and they can get through grids. I don't think grids are appropriate for rat cages at all. You can make a large 2 story for your bunny though.

I'm moving this to the rat section.

Go to the photo galleries, under "cages for other pets", search for "rat mansion". This rattier (a real word?) did a great cube cage for ratties.

Sorry for the double post. The thought occurred to me after my edit time expired. There are grids that look like chrome that might work for your rabbit. I don't think that they are painted. There are lots of ideas in the photo galleries.

Hi Frank, the rats would be able to chew the connectors no problem.

Ly&pigs, where I am you can get grids which are meshed with very small holes, absolutely no way a rat could fit through them.

Thanks Toadies. :)

The mesh grids may work where the regular grids won't unless wrapped in hardware cloth.
