I do everything content.

If you have a wire mesh cage for your pet rats, make sure you cover the surfaces, so their tiny feet stay healthy.

If you have a wire mesh cage for your pet rats, make sure you cover the surfaces, so their tiny feet stay healthy.

 

Apparently the wire floors and ramps in pet rat cages can be quite bad for rattie feet.

It’s healthier for your ratties to cover the wire mesh and provide solid flooring.

Ideas for materials are endless, just make sure they are non-toxic and easy to clean or replace:

 

Handy materials for surfaces in your pet rat cage

– plastic sheets

– newspaper (printed with non-toxic ink)

– fleece

– old towels / t-shirts

– egg tray filler flats

– cardboard

– cereal boxes

 

Bonus Tip: Use office pegs to pin down the material to the cage floor, so the ratties can’t remove it.
