    New mom to Sid and Manny!

    Thanks for the input! They definitely get along in that tank. They do everything together, even when out! Silly brothers. :P I think I'm gonna try a 3.5x2, but if that doesn't work, I'm glad to know that a 3x2 will work for them! And a 3x3 sounds great, but that would definitely not fit! :)...

    New mom to Sid and Manny!

    They came with this tank style cage. I thought it was bigger from the pictures, but it's not all that big (50 Gallon max, I think). I want to build them a C&C cage but don't have much room. Would a 2x3 grid cage work for two boys? I know it's not optimal size, but according to the site, it would...

    Ezra is quite the heart stealer! I rescued him and Fiji from a terrible home. They had clearly been trying to breed them, and when Fiji wouldn't get pregnant, they decided to get rid of them. They were living in a filthy bare cage with no food or water. Apparently they had been eating cookies...

    The older style shelves have a pretty dangerous gap between the plastic and metal parts. If not placed or covered correctly, it makes a small enough gap for a rat foot to get stuck in it. It's personally never happened to me, but I've lots of stories about it. :( And about the ramps, I have...

    Ratties Pics of my rats!

    I do have stair covers but I don't always use them! I mostly use them to absorb their pee. I can understand why ferret feet would get stuck in the ladder, but rat feet are too small to get stuck in it. ;) I've never heard of a rat getting his feet stuck in the ladder, but it has happened with...

    Yes, they do pea fishing! (I think that's what you meant) They love it on a hot summer day. They also love to dig in their digging box (bin full of dirt and planted bird seeds)

    New mom to Sid and Manny!

    We just adopted two brother piggies from someone who didn't want them anymore. Manny is white and orange and Sid is all white. They both have very scruffy hair! They both seem quite sweet and we clipped their grossly long nails (they were curling in) last night without much resistance from them...
