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.

hehe...

 

how big is the cage for how many ratties? They need a lot of space so we need to check that the cage will be big enough (:

Thanks. Yup, it's supposed to be ok - big enough for 3 females apparently. Tried to post a picture but couldn't figure it out. Caryn's how to on loading them on the third party website was great but I couldn't figure out how to then attach to my forum message??

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. :ratgiggle: :ratgiggle:

 

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. :laughCry:

 

my baby rats were happy as they got the smaller bedding instead. :tummykiss:

I also buy from Settican, her goods are awesome and much loved. I even have the first few hammocks that I bought years ago. My boys love to chew their cubes to pieces but fortunately the hammocks and double bunks have lasted an age even though it's always a treat to get new bedding. The fleece she uses is really good quality. I have the added privilege of going to fetch personally as well.. being in Cape Town and having her 10 min from my daughters school :D
