So, I thought I'd share the funny experiences of an inexperienced, new rattie mom! I have found it very difficult to find cages, toys, food and hammock beds etc. for rats in JHB. Everything seems to be in Cape Town (unless I'm being really blond and looking in all the wrong places!) So, I ordered everything on line and had it delivered to JHB. Today, the beds arrived to much excitement. Then I opened the box and everything was HUGE! Hahahahahaha.... I had no idea how big they would be - needless to say, instead of having 3 beds to choose from, only one bed fits in the cage! And the cool monster toy is TWICE the size of the cage (and it was the smaller toy!) Big shout out to Annerie from Mischief - the items are gorgeous. Totally my mistake for not realising the true size of everything. I'm still giggling. At least I have spare beds for when one is being washed.

Mischief Pet Products is based in Gauteng, that is Anneri There is nothing in Durban, I usually purchase all my fabric cubes, hammocks, tents, bunks, etc from Settican of Rat Comforts in CT though. Her stuff is amazing. And I buy all my cages from Petmania's online shop and deliver up this way from CT too.

hehehe oh claire.shame man swty but don't worry about the mistake, as i have done a similar thing before from anneri except i ordered to small.
my biggest girl at the time (candi) squished herself into the small corner bed or at least tried too.& got her bottom stuck outside & head inside.it was rather funny as she was such a pedigreed upper crust lady rat.after man handling her & finally getting her unstuck.she scuppered off & sulked with paws crossed on my pillow.she was most upset & not amused.
my baby rats were happy as they got the smaller bedding instead.
