    Here are my rat boys. They're very tame, but I think Leo's the tamest. I want to start clicker training him... I think that would be awesome. The click stik I just bought, the nose isn't so loud, so I think that'd work better for my rat. Well, Leo is "mine", Dust and Ralphie are my roommates, but we all take care of all of them. Anyways... :D

    are all of them litter trained? That would make life much easier! I always wished my guinea pigs could be litter trained---I dont' have any now, but would think about it again if I could train them!

    Yep, they are :D

    They still occasionally pee outside of the pan - actually, I've read that rats are incontinent, so they might do it more than I think... but it helps a lot with cleaning the cage! :)

    I did have a wee bit of a question. That cage looks pretty small for 3 full grown adult rats. Is it bigger than it looks? Or is that a temporary cage...?

    *goes back to look at the pics* The cage is much bigger than it looks. I can see how it looks small in the pictures - it must be the angle.
    However, it is a temp cage in the sense that I had to buy a smaller one because of the spacing on the bars because they were only 6-8weeks when I got them and they slipped through bars easily ;)
    I have been looking for a BIGGER, multi level cage... I want the *right* one for us, and the most decent price, of course :p <3

    Have you checked Goosemoose.com in their "Sales" section? A lot of people sell their old cages on there, for cheap.

    Thought'd you guys would like to know (especially punky) that I finally found and awesome cage. It's a 4 level cage, I got it off of craigslist for only $50. The picture really doesn't do it justice, its like brand new and HUGE
