I finally decided to go platform free in my explorer :)

Image

Image

I'm so glad I did it and dont think I'd go back to having a platform in now! Every single thing gets used a lot, even the almost vertical post thing gets used by everyone! I love it and my boys seem to as well!

We have a brand-new cage! We bought an Aventura (basically, a Critter Nation) from EQF a couple of weeks ago, and we're starting to really love it. Here's some rubbish-quality pics :oops: sorry, taken on a camera phone, but hopefully you should be able to see the general outline

The top half;

The bottom half;

The disgruntled occupants are waiting for out-time, I think they were'nt impressed with my sense of priorities.

We've replaced the tray-style shelves that came with the cage using several layers of reinforced cardboard covered in sticky-back plastic - unorthodox but it works well, cleans easily, and if we don't like the colour, we can get new ones. They sit in the cage-holder frames (technical word?) much better than the metal ones as well, and don't fill up with 'debris' :sick:

We've got some hanging houses on order from snugglebugs which should arrive before xmas, which I'm really looking forward to adding to the cage :D

The boys current set up. Haven't had the middle section in for quite a while. Hoping to get a larger plastic tub for the bottom this weekend and see what other bits and bobs ikea may have for them.

Layout before clean out:

New layout, I'll probably shuffle it about a bit as I'm not sure I'm happy with it yet:
