Re: What size wheel for male rats?

Thank you for the lovely suggestions everyone! :D

Cyber ratty you mentioned the perspex tray. Is that something I can buy pre-made (I really hope so!!) or is there an online shop I can buy the pieces from? Also recommended dimensions! :D

Re: What size wheel for male rats?

Good to hear that smaller rats can still use the 16" - means that the wheel is more versatile and usable by any future rats I might have :love: I'm a bit wary of the Silent Spinners as the yellow 'rim' around it seems like a good place to collect pee! The Tic Tac wheels, although I understand you sh...

Re: What size wheel for male rats?

Thanks Cyber Ratty! :D It is helpful to know that the 16" is the best size for male rats, I am assuming that even if the rats are on the smaller side they can still use the larger 16" wheel? I really like the Tic Tac wheels but as I'm saving up for an SRS cage I'm looking at ways to save elsewhere. ...

What size wheel for male rats?

I will hopefully be getting a male trio in about 2 months time. Currently making sure I have everything I need. I would like to know what is a good wheel size for male rats? 8-) I would also appreciate any suggestions for good wheels. I have heard that Tic Tac wheels are good but they are rather pri...

Re: Liberta Explorer 2nd Edition - Actual Cage Size

Thanks! After reading loads of reviews of people who have had the Liberta cage for more than a year it appears the cage is prone to rusting badly which is a bit disappointing :( . After a bit more research it looks like overall people seem to prefer the Savic Royal Suite and I have seen the SRS 95 o...

Re: Liberta Explorer 2nd Edition - Actual Cage Size

I'm not so much worried about getting around the cage for cleaning, I plan to leave a decent gap around, plus I can always just get the Hubby to move it for me 8-) . Depending on the cage I will likely get some thick wood cut to size, put some casters on the bottom and have the cage sitting on that ...

Re: Should I get 3 rats or is a group of 4 better?

Thanks for the feedback everyone! I'm glad to hear that 3 is a good number for a group, I wouldn't mind 4 of course but as a first time owner I think I'm going to take it slow, as it is I'm sweating about how I'm going to keep an eye on 3 little fur monsters at the same time :lol: ! I'm used to hams...

Should I get 3 rats or is a group of 4 better?

I am looking to purchase my first rats and want more than 2 as I feel it would be nicer for the rats and, not to be morbid, but should the worst happen to one of them I would not be in the situation of dealing with a lone rat. The question is then if I should start with a group of 3 or 4? I don't fe...

Liberta Explorer 2nd Edition - Actual Cage Size

I am currently looking at cages before I purchase my first rats. I am keen on the Liberta Explorer 2nd edition but due to space restrictions there is only one spot I can place the cage and it's where the roof slants so I have to be careful regarding cage height :( . I have looked online and the heig...
