Rat Cage Tour

Video Transcript


hello guys welcome back to my channel
today is a video that you’ve been
literally been asking me for full months
and that is going to be a cage tour of
my rat’s cage I’ve had this cage for
about three months now and how would
really showing you any of it and the
main reason for that is that I just
wasn’t happy with the cage so I wanted
to wait until I was happy with the way
it looked before showing it to you but
you guys have been asking me to show you
this cage for months so I’m finally
getting to do that for you today so in
this cage behind me is the pet panic
Bratton ferret cage I’ve had this since
June and before that I had 2/3 prospero
cages stuck together so this is
definitely the biggest rat cage I’ve
ever had this cage is very similar to
the Liberto Explorer style cages that
many people have it’s just a little bit
cheaper and has a few differences but
before I get into showing you the cage
and the layout of the cage or something
I quickly wanted to show you first and
that is that a company called dainty
pause ek was kind enough to send along
some hammocks for the boys to try out
and we’re really excited to show these
to you and put them into the cage now
the first thing I saw when actually open
the packaging was this really cute
letter ally has a sticker on the front
with a really cute hamster which I’m
kind of tempted to peel off and keep
because it is so cute so that itit just
says hi Emily thank you so much for
letting us send you this gift we hope
you like it
sorry again about fig but then it will
look hot I hope these were able to
brighten your day lots of love Millie
from dainty paws if you don’t know
recently I did lose my mouse fix they’re
getting this package in the mail
definitely made my day so thank you
again many for sending these to me so
many was kind enough to let me pick the
fabric and the style of hammocks I
wanted to go in my cage and the first
one I picked I think it’s called a
double hammock and it’s absolutely
massive this is what it looks like and
it’s got this little compartment here
and then another one down here this is
definitely too big for the two rocks I
have now I do plan on getting more rats
and I’m adopting to you at the end of
this month so I’m hoping that they’ll
all enjoy getting along in here together
so all of our hammocks do come with it
rings and clips to attach the cage
because it’s not online right now
because I’ve just taken them out the
cage to show them to you but that’s
really handy because you don’t have to
go out and buy your own and then the
second hammock that I have to show you
is just a flat hammock and it has this
pattern on the outside and then on the
in
it’s just green fleece and again this
has the rings and the clips that come
with it along it’s like how much he does
also have a lot of other items for small
animals such as toys and treats in her
shop which I will leave linked down in
the description she’s been kind enough
to give us a discount code which is I’m
we tend to give you 10% off at checkout
if you do decide to purchase anything
from her this discount code does run out
on the 27th of October 2018 so if you’re
watching this far ahead in the future
and the code is probably not going to
work you should definitely take out with
her shop anyways
so without further ado I’m going to go
ahead and show you my cage and show you
everything I have inside of it so this
is my rat’s cage and is the pet panic
Braton ferret cage this isn’t how it
looked when it came if you see this
little bit here that was actually a
second level in here kind of like a tray
that had a hole in it and then a ladder
that came down i’ve actually made the
decision to take that out just to give
them a more active layout and to allow
me to hang more things in the cage
because the level that did come across
here didn’t have any like grid or
anything i’ll show you in a minute what
the levels look like but it didn’t have
a grid or anything to hang anything
underneath so i made it really hard for
me to actually fill the cage and put
things in the cage and also i really
didn’t like it because the level that
was here did have a hole for the ladder
to come down and all the bedding that I
do use was falling through the hole and
that level was ending up there so I
thought it was just bad to take it out
to give them an active layout and to
save me the house that I’m having to
keep putting bedding back into that
level this is what the latches on the
door look like and you just slide them
to open like this so this is what the
bottom level of the cage so exciting
spiral is about to jump out come on jump
on the actual door of the cage or just
zip tied a basket that I got from
Poundland and that just has the same
bedding in it that’s on the bottom of
the cage just to absorb anything if they
do decide to pee in there and then a
buffer is a wooden shelf
got from ebay I believed from a seller
on eBay as you can see in the back
corner I just have one of these hanging
to nose and these are great to use
either hanging in the cage or on the
floor of the cage too and then next to
that is just the ladder that leads up to
the next level over the cage and then
below that is a foraging toy this one on
the left is a foraging toy which I have
a couple of treats in but they have to
roll around and get the food out of and
then next to that is just a little cat
toy and then moving on from that I again
have another foraging toy this one is
actually aimed at cats and it is in the
shape of a little mouse or rat I’m not
entirely sure but I really like this one
this is one of Sunday’s favorite toys
and again this just has a couple of
treats in it not behind this I have this
little blue her and this is something
that I’ve always had in my cage this was
what I got when I got my first rats and
they really loved this so I always kept
it in the cage I know I don’t have them
anymore I kind of keep it there as a
little like not to them so the tray on
the bottom that the cage comes with is
about an inch deep I have looked into
getting perspex trays made to increase
the depth at the bottom to allow me to
put more bedding in but also to prevent
it for being kicked out because I have
carpet in this room and it does get
kicked out really easily but perspex
like that is around 50 pounds so haven’t
gotten around to buying it yet the
bedding I’m using is a recycled
cardboard bedding called fin a card
although this is not the most absorbent
bedding I do use got to feed my rats to
encourage them to forage for their food
which is why I don’t have too many items
on the bottom to allow space for this
and this bedding works really well for
this purpose but this is actually the
last of this bedding that I have and I
want to try something else so I think
I’m gonna be switching beddings quite
soon attached to the side of my cage is
a water bottle and you’re probably
thinking oh my god what the heck why is
the water yellow that is really
disgusting but don’t worry this is
actually vitamins and minerals I’ve
added to the water the one I use is
called daily essentials and this is just
added vitamins and minerals that you add
into the water are another beneficial
thing to their health and I’ll add this
in about every week to two weeks and
they really enjoy drinking this in fact
the other water bottle gets pretty much
ignored when this is in and they
actually really enjoy the taste of this
when the other water bottle that has
nothing in it is also in the cage though
much prefer to drink this which I guess
is a good thing
because they’re getting those added
extra minerals and vitamins so moving on
from that a little bit of both what I
just mentioned I have a wooden bridge
which is attached to the Shelf here and
then above that acting is kind of like a
rope ladder is an Ikea tie holder these
you can get really cheap from Ikea and
there’s a really good thing to add into
your cage a lot of things in my cage
aren’t actually meant for wraps but they
work really well and then right above
that I’ve just zip tied a bendy tube to
the side of the cage and that goes all
the way up to the second level in the
cage
so then above all of this is the first
shelf in the cage and I actually line
these with a bath mat from Ikea ideally
I wouldn’t have to have anything in
there but I do want to protect these
shelves from getting rusted so this is
already the next best thing for me and I
just attach these with binder clips and
then at the front is a water dish
because I’m paranoid about my rights
water bottles not working so I always
like to have a second water source for
them just in case and then to the left
of this is another foraging toy which I
really like because it’s in the shape of
a right which Sabonis and that’s when
the holes are a little bit bigger so
just put things like fruit or vegetables
or dog biscuits in there a little bit
harder for them to get out and then
above this is the triple hammock that
dainty poles UK centers and then to the
right of this is a foraging wheel which
is my favorite following toy I use this
to put their main food in when I’m not
scatter feeding it on the floor if I
have time to fill this up because you do
have to take it off of the cage and fill
it up through the little holes so when I
do have time to put this in I’ll use
this and they have to work really hard
to get the food out this so I really
love this toy and then in the back
corner of the shelf I just have a litter
tray I found that if I didn’t have
anything here the rats were using that
as a toilet
so just for the litter tray that you
kind of prevent them from going in that
corner I also have a pee Rock in there
to encourage them to pee in their litter
trays so moving on to the top half of
the cage this is what it looks like with
a door shut and this the way it looks
like with the doors open Sunday
so starting with the door at the top of
the cage you just have these three
wooden shoes these two are from pets at
home and I think this one was from zoo
plus and I really like these ones
because they are like realistic looking
and they really enjoy chewing these so
starting with the left hand side of the
cage I just have this wooden ladder that
is above the turnable and hello
there’s above the tunnel and the IKEA
tie rack and this just attaches to the
shelf on the right and then behind that
I have another of the wooden bridges
that I showed you below this is just to
fill the gap in case they do fall behind
this is another corner litter tray and
this one just clips onto the side of the
cage and it’s really easy to take off
and again I just have a pea rock in
there to encourage them to use the
litter trays and then above this I just
have this foot and hanging toy it’s a
little bit too small for them to
actually climb on but they do really
enjoy chewing this so if this we just
have this dog rope I picked up from B&M
for 4 pounds I found the ones that are
targeted at rats or birds are a lot more
money so I’ve just got a dog one and
I’ve zipped idea to the side of the cage
and this one just goes all the way up
here and then all the way round bear to
attach up there and then directly above
that is just another one of those wooden
purchase and then behind that is another
IKEA item this is just a storage thing
that I found in the kids section and it
just works really well to zip-tie onto
the side of the cage and inside of this
I’ve just put some really soft bedding
for them to go in and sleep in and
suddenly actually really likes to use
this and then directly in front of that
I just have this fruit holder which I’ll
sometimes attached fruit and vegetables
onto just to make it a little bit harder
for them to get them and then in the
middle of the cage right at the top is
one of the dainty paws UK hammocks this
is the flat hammock and Sonia is asleep
in there right now he’s really not fazed
by how loud I’m talking and then next to
that is just the rope that carries on
around and behind that right at the back
is a Sputnik and then below this I just
have a lava ledge which is supposed to
help to keep their claws down and this
just acts as a step up into the Sputnik
so this is the second shelf in the cage
and again I’ve just used an Ikea bath
mat on here which is attached with
binder clips and then most the shelf is
taken up with this Heidi house thing I
really like this design
it’s open on both ends so if you do have
a lot of rats and they are all going
into one high to sleep together and they
don’t feel too trapped and they can get
out of both exit and if one of this is a
foraging toy which sprout has decided to
demonstrate with this one’s a little bit
harder than some of the other ones I
have but I’ve just put really small
treats in here or bits of cereal and
they have to pull all the different
levers to get it down to the bottom but
I find that if they just knock it and
some of them will fall down and then
they have to stick their heads inside
yet the treats out and then lastly on
their shelf I just have this little
donut chew toy that I got from pet show
home and then on the outside of the cage
I just have another water ball so this
one just has plain water in it so they
have plenty of water sources in the cage
so it underneath the cage I just have
the spare tray that I took out of the
cage some extra ladders over here there
carry cash and dog biscuits to put into
the foraging toys and then all the
storage boxes that has their food in
some extra toys things to hang hammocks
with some props or photos and then all
these things here this is Mouse food and
then this is rat treats and then that is
what treats and then this is a box that
I go out when I play with them so that’s
it for today’s video guys I really hope
