rat rat rat rat rat

Soooooooooooo, I have been busy doing some construction lately. My rats needed a new cage, because they ate their way through the old one. So here are some photos of the cages, and of my babies.

Here's the old cage, minus half of the wire because I needed it for the new one. The girls lived in the top half, but they chewed a hole through the floor. And my construction skills for this one weren't that awesome either, so new cages were in order.

And here are the rats: Oska, Boris, Anouk (or Nook, or Nookie) and Ruby (aka Rubes). Boris is the oldest, he's the alpha male and sometimes beats Oska up, but they get along well. Rats live better lives when they have company, so Oska came along about two weeks after I got Boris.
I got the girls about 3 months later, Ruby first, and then Nook a week later. They get along really well too, and always sleep in 'rat piles' in the corner of their cage.

And here's the new cage, this is where the girls live now. The boys are getting one just like that, once I get around to finishing it. Right now it's in pieces on the garage floor, haha.
About the new cage: the top floor has their lunchbox house (with Nook inside) and a hammock, middle floor is where all the food/water is (and Ruby, eating something), and the bottom floor has their litter box. I'm trying to train them to use it, but so far they just keep knocking it over.

And that concludes today's lesson.
Everyone should have pet rats because they're awesome.
