What Happens When I Clean The Rat Cages

I usually hand wash all the smaller items like the hammocks, bunkers, cubes and cotton baby blankets. So when I pulled out the wigwam from Flowers cage, this is what I found. She has totally destroyed it. But I know she likes it so I washed it and will put a baby blanket inside it so she can curl up in it once again. 

I hand washed the baby blankets that I use to line the shelves and add into the cubes because they love having a soft blanket in their cubes that they can snuggle under. 

Flower has several hammocks, cubes, and a pouch she can snuggle into as well as some toys to play with. She destroyed the wooden bird toys I had in her cage so I added some non toxic baby teething rings to her cage and she climbs all over them, hangs upside down and chews on them.

Scribbles was looking at me like, "I really hope you're done messing with my cage now" after I replaced the baby blankets on his shelves. 

He really gave me, "the look." 

While Flower could have cared less as long as she has a Yogie to eat. 

Flower happily stayed on the bottom level of the cage while I changed the blankets and cubes on the upper level and ate her yogie and dumped over the food bowl to find all the good stuff. lol I clean it all up, fill her food bowl and she turns it over and dumps it all over the floor. 

Scribbles stayed in his cube on the upper level of his cage until I was done with the 2 bottom levels and then he came down to see what I had done, sniffing every square inch of the new blankets. 

Flower was happy with her new blankets and new cube and was ready for another treat. 


  1. haha that is the way, just get it clean and then they'll make even more of a mess

  2. Looks about as involved as mine is. Whenever it starts getting too messy for the boys Wicket starts posting paper out onto the floor so I know it needs doing. ;-)

  3. LOL what a naughty girl chewing through her pouch but aws for a happy herd babe.

  4. Pat- They love to make a mess.

    Click- LOL That's funny. Mine start throwing their poo out of the cage and onto the floor where the dog can find it. o.O

    Anna- She just loves chewing things. I know my couch is very decorated by her chewing. lol

  5. reminds me of my dog when she used to rip her pet beds apart.

  6. My cat has no appreciation for the little cleaning things and extras. You do a lot of sweet things for your rat babies.
