Our house

Published September 13, 2012 by Kokomo

Hey there!

We have a fantastic house, called ‘the ratty-flat’. We started out small, but it has grown bigger and bigger over the months. First we had to live on cotton in the bottom. We liked messing that up, pushing it out of the cage and making a giant mess all around the cage. Now we just get old towels that get washed every week. We LOVE these! Not only are they great to gnaw on and tear apart, we can also build little nests in them. See, us rats, we like sleeping in our own pee, it’s a very comfortable smell. We hate it when our owner cleans the cage. We try to escape and hide as far away as possible. Clean cages smell too clean. So the first thing we do when we are finally caught and put into our cage is pee everywhere and mess everything up.

We really enjoy certain features of our home, such as the hammock, the fortress on top and Ruma loves running in the big silent spinner wheel. Koko mainly likes pooping in the wheel. One thing we hate about the cage is the bars. Koko vigorously tries to gnaw them very often. No success so far.

For a while, we had a tunnel that we could use to get from one cage to another. But, little deviants that we are we gnawed our way through it several times and managed to escape (more about this in another post).

So now we are stuck in a smaller cage, until our owner has time to clean the other cage and we can spend the day in one cage, and the night in the other.

Luckily, we do get let out on a regular basis and then we run around like madmen, tearing up the place! Nothing like a little messmaking really.

We have enclosed a little gallery of our home over the past months. Yeah, it keeps our owner busy!
