Question by Laurey: ferret cage for a rat?
I’m going to buy 2 female rats, and I want them to have the best cage possible. There’s a nicely priced one a petco, and it looks like the rats would love it, but it’s a ferret cage. The wires are properly spaced, and it has 4 levels!
What I’m worried about is this tunnel thing that the rat would have to climb through to get to the second level. Would a rat be able to use this? It’s not very tall, so the rat won’t have to really climb much, but it sorta bends upwards at a near 90 degree angle. Obviously a ferret could use it, so could a rat? It will be big enough. I don’t want anything that would hurt the rat’s back, or something it would refuse to use, thus defeating the whole purpose of the 4 level cage.
Also, it comes with one of those hammock things for ferrets. Will the rat use this?
Mrs Phas — it is the second cage you posted.

My rat just climbs up the wire instead of the ramps =D
