    I can agree with that too! Us we have two double FN (making more like 4 cages in one) and cleaning them takes less time then all my other cages(7 other types of cages) And makes the place look nice and tidy ;)

    That's why I just can't use complete-fleece :( Mine all destroy it apart from my little gummy.

    Something about the CN is encouraging them to use their hammies and cuddle more often, though I still have yet to see ALL three together. They like to sleep in pairs... :roll:

    The bright colored hut and food dish are from a fondue set I found at a thrift store. :giggle:

    That pink tile by the wheel is a granite tile piece I bought from a used building supply store ($1). The idea was for it to function like a "Chinchiller" ($10) so they could lie on it and cool off, but I haven't seen them do that yet. I've only had them a few days.

    And here's a video of them exploring their new CN for the first time:

    Dose anyone not use anything on the floors of there cn's?
    I am unable to use bedding because it irritates Toby's resp issues, and blankets and fllece get soaked in about 10 min, from them peeing on it ..so I just have litter pans with YN in the cage and leave the floor bear. They hardly ever pee on the bare floor, maybe one spot in a run of a day.

    I've tried to go that route and wiping down, but it's too much work for me. My kids tend to grind their lab block dust into urine to make a thick, nearly impossible to scrub paste if I don't put fleece down.

    Thank you crumbilina :) I made everything (liners and hammocks) but the elephant. The elephant toy is an ele-fun, its a ferret toy that is a tube with a toy they can bat at inside, its pretty neat and the rats love it. And yes definately post your pics!

    Also, I too tried the just wipe method...it was really gross and ineffective for me even wiping it multiple times a day.

    Haha, yeah I'm smesyna on GM.

    I've used granite tiles and they were no more rough than the edges of the chin chiller, but if you are worried about it you can always make a cotton or flannel (cotton is cooler though) cover for it and then there is no way to get scratched :)
