New rats and smelly cage tips!

Post by xcosmox » Sat Jul 30, 2016 12:47 pm

Almost a month ago now I got 2 new boys - barton and pavel :D They have just moved in with my other 2 and they all get along great! They are such cuties!! They are very sweet although Barton (the smaller one of the two) is still quite timid.

I was also wondering if anyone had any tips on keeping the cage smell less? Im not particularly bothered by the smell but my brother really hates it. I clean out the cage once a week and I spot clean twice a day. But there is still a pretty strong smell coming from the cage :-/ Thanks for the help!
