Big RAT house for the rat
Materials: Gorm system
Description: You might be asking..”What a strange introduction to a hack..” I’d like to introduce the house of our 5 rat girls..
As a new cage for our rat pack would be WAAAY to expensive..my gf and i decided to have a go at it ourselves..Meaning – I’d have a go
It all started with a trip to the nearest Ikea store and the purchase of this.
Price ok, everything ok..and now what??
This is how it looked when we got it home..
You will need one of these..
Special tray for food, toys…stuff
Wheels for extra mobility (2.99€ for 4)
The neighbours like me a bit less..but what has to be done, has to be done..
As we all know how sneaky rats are… I’d rather put in 100 extra staples than search for the rat in our apartment.
The netting is cheaper in a roll than in one piece… we need the same thing to hold the Space Shuttle together…cable ties.
The best cage is useless without doors..
Take care you get straight pieces… crooked wood will not help your project..
Fresh from England..Sputnik rat houses..
Litter box with small Samla toilet.., rat Manca has to pose..
The 2-nd Sputnik hanging on the ceiling-again – cable ties..:)
I hope you like my work..:)
