Rat Cages

Rat cages are available in either plastic, wire or wood but the most preferred option for your rat cage is a plastic base with a wire top. This allows for easy cleaning and access to your pet. Most rat cages have two or more levels allowing your rat to explore as they are naturally very active. As rats have teeth that are continually growing there is a need to have something in your rat cage to allow your pet to gnaw on. This could be something as simple as a cardboard tube which not only will serve its purpose but also provide your pet with plenty of enjoyment.

There are some essential items that your cage must have. Your rat requires hay for nesting material, wood shaving for the floor covering or as a cheap alternative you can use paper towels torn into strips, a ceramic food dish, water bottle and food.
