Fancy Rat Cages

Fancy rats make great pets for the right people. Even with the recommended minimum of play-time outside of the cage on a daily basis your pet will still spend the majority of his or her time inside of the cage called home. These animals are active pets and very intelligent creatures. Because of this, itís important to make sure that you provide a fancy rat cage that will allow your little friend to exercise physically, as well as, mentally.

The minimum floor space that is recommended for each pet rat is 24 inches by 12 inches. Please keep in mind that this is the absolute bare minimum recommendation. It is, also, recommended that if you can afford it and have the space that you get a larger cage. Vertical space can give your pet some added space. Vertical cage space isnít important and floor space but it is much better than no space at all. Fancy pet rats are very active and will utilize any space that they are given.

Ventilation is important to the health of your pet and the quality of the air you breathe. Decomposing fecal matter and urine give off ammonia gas, among other things. Many respiratory problems in rats can be traced back to ammonia gas and poor ventilation. Because of this, it is recommended that you get a wire mesh cage to use as your fancy rat cage. The open walls of these cages make ventilation a breeze when compared to aquariums or other glass tanks. You can put some litter down on the floor to help absorb the droppings. Regardless of the use of litter, you should plan on cleaning your petís home, at least, weekly. Wire cages are, also, very handy when it comes to hanging hammocks, toys, or water bottles. Try to find a cage that does not use plastic. Rats need to chew to keep their teeth from getting too long and they will chew through a plastic cage or floor.
