the-cheer-teacher  asked:

I want to get my first ever pet rats, I'm so excited for it but the cages are so expensive, do you have any experience of diy cages? They will probably be out most of the time I'm at home, but I want a good home for them when they can't be out. I was also wondering if you had any other advice for a beginner? Thanks

Hi  the-cheer-teacher!

That’s exciting you’re getting pet rats and that you’re doing this research ahead of time.

Keep in mind you only need to buy a cage once. I believe you can save a lot of time and money in the long run by buying a high quality, ready-made cage. You can often find cages with discounted prices online. (More on this later on.) There are other pet rat supplies you can craft yourself. For example, using cardboard boxes for hideouts, and making your own hammocks and toys can all help cut costs. 

PHOTO: Cardboard boxes are a budget-friendly way to furnish your pet rats’ cage.

I’ve looked at a lot of DIY cage photos. Some are made using inappropriate materials and some are shoddily constructed. The best DIY cages I’ve come across are the ones made of the wire cubes used for closet storage. You’d need to find the right grid-size, though, so your rats won’t be able to squeeze through. The other possible problem with using these wire crates for cage-building is, if your rats chew on the wires, it could be toxic for them. When you purchase a cage made specifically for pets, you can rest assured they’re completely safe and non-toxic.

PHOTO: Wire closet storage cubes can be used to make cages.

In case you want to look into using wire storage crates, here are some examples of cages made for rabbits:

The wire storage cubes used in the above cages can be purchased inexpensively from Walmart online here

I previously responded on Tumblr to someone who was interested in converting a bird cage into a pet rat home

I love the idea of converting cabinets into pet rat cages. However, since converted cabinets only allow for air flow from the front, any build-up of urine and/or feces would be even more dangerous for a rat’s sensitive respiratory system. To keep rats healthy, It’s important to have adequate ventilation and air flow.

In fact, here are a few things you definitely want to avoid in a cage—whether or not it’s store-bought or hand-made:

  • Wood - Liquids (including urine) will soak into wood. Wood cannot be properly and thoroughly cleaned. 
  • Sharp Edges - Rats can easily get puncture wounds which can develop into abscesses.
  • Aquariums – As mentioned earlier, air flow is important. Aquariums don’t allow for adequate air circulation.
  • Wire mesh on the floor(s) of the cage unless kept covered. - If routinely allowed to walk directly on the mesh, rats are more prone to develop bumblefoot. Bumblefoot is a bacterial infection and inflammatory reaction that occurs on the bottom of rat feet, and is not always easy to resolve.
  • Wire mesh that’s rectangular (instead of square) can potentially pose a risk.  Injuries can occur when the gauge is just big enough for a rat’s hind foot to stick all the way through one of the rectangles. If the rat then rotates its foot and tries to pull it back out of the rectangle, a sprain or other injury could result.

For more information on choosing cages with the best specs and materials, I have a page on my website dedicated to Pet Rat Housing.

To help cut expenses, you could always look for a used cage in good condition. As long as the cage hasn’t accumulated years of crud and is still structurally sound you can sometimes find great deals on craigslist, eBay as well as on local rat group facebook pages.

Finally, the Critter Nation Double Unit is often on sale. Right now it’s on sale for $179.99. (It’s normally $239.99.) Many rat owner feel that this cage is the gold standard.

My personal favorites are the Martin’s cages. The F-470, in particular, looks fantastic. It’s nice and roomy, well-constructed and has square mesh. It is a bit more expensive but, as I said earlier, you only need to buy a cage once.  

PHOTO: This is the Martin’s cage in which my own rats live.

For babies, you can always get a Rat Manor as long as you can get a larger cage later on when your rats become full-grown. The Rat Manor is collapsible making it easy to store. This is a great cage to have on hand when you need to temporarily house your rats in another room. It can also be used when introducing new rats.

I hope my response is helpful. I know I went beyond just answering your question about DIY cages. However, since a cage is such an important part of a rat’s life, I thought I’d give you an overview that encompasses more than just cages you can build yourself. Rats love building nests and making their living spaces their own. Even if your rats will be out most of the time while you’re home, you’ll still want them to have a lot of space in a well made cage when you’re not home.

For tips on general care, I have a website called About Pet Rats. I also have a Guide to Essential Pet Rat Supplies you can get for free when you sign up for my pet rat care newsletter.

Enjoy your new babies and I’d love to hear what you decide to make (or buy) for their home!

Best Wishes,

Six: Today has the makings of a lovely day!

River: Really?

Six: Mm, we could, you know, go for a walk along the beach later…

River: We could…

Six: And I spy a little store selling ices at the end of the pier!

River: Oh yes!

Six: We could, um, dream… a little…

I’m not okay with how adorable these two were in The Diary of River Song, not in the slightest. What did I do to deserve a scene where Six and River have tea together and he bashfully proposes a date inside her dreams? What did I do to deserve any of the Six/River scenes? (I know they had to save the world ‘n all… I kinda wish they had been able to dream together I’m so schmaltzy…)

Some Poisoned Food For Thought by tjstar (16/16 | 56,354 | Not Rated)

Josh feels uncomfortable as Tyler’s hollow glance travels to his ‘I WANT TO BELIEVE’ tank top. Tyler’s face is emotionless, but his words come out with such a non-breakable confidence.

“You’re on my team, aren’t you?”

Josh’s breath hitches.

“What’s the team?” he asks cautiously. “The team of ‘The X-files’ fans?”

“The team of Believers,” Tyler rolls his eyes like he’s talking to a stupid baby and runs out of patience, but the knot of nervousness in Josh’s chest slowly unties itself.

Aka the story in which Tyler is obsessed with aliens, and Josh can’t leave him alone.

This is what I do, remember? When you came to me, you gave me a job. A purpose. At first, well, I had been trying to save the world for so long, I–saving one life at a time seemed a bit anticlimactic. 

But then I realized… sometimes one life… If it’s the right life… That’s enough.

the daily clarke

Bellamy woke and wiped the sleep from his blurry eyes. He always took the first shift of the day. Eager to check on all the systems and farms to make sure everything was running smoothly. A calm enveloped the Ring as everyone else was still sound asleep in their quarters. Only his footfalls and the hum of the equipment gave any indication of life. Afterward, Bellamy grabbed grub from the kitchen for his breakfast. Grub was an accurate name, very little taste or texture, but down it fast enough and you didn’t really notice. His one consolation was a hot cup of tea. Discovering the seeds to tea plants had been a good day. 

Bellamy brought his tea to the the observation deck as the sun began to emerge over the eastern half of the continent. Like clockwork, the computer signaled an incoming message from Earth. The Ring’s comm system barely worked within its confines. It definitely didn’t have the juice to transmit anything but they could receive strong transmissions. Bellamy smiled as he pushed the button to turn on the speakers as Clarke’s hopeful voice brought him up to speed with her life. Foraging for food, learning to use the special technology in Becca’s bunker, and raising young Madi. Asking him if he had dealt with something similar raising Octavia. He thought of travelers in the ancient world who wrote letters to family and friends in far off lands who had to wait years for those letters to reach them with news. He got his news in wonderful daily doses. But she would have to wait until he returned to Earth. Still more than 2 years away, he longed see Clarke and Octavia. Gazing down on the continent he had once trudged through, sometimes the short months he had spend down there felt like a dream from which he had woken up. 

He finished the last sip of his drink and saved the message to their logs. Someday he’d tell her everything that happened up here. How this was the favorite part of his day, listening to hers. He knew she was counting the days and he counted along with her as the others began to shuffle along the hallway to start their day.

"I can save you" "No you can't" prompt maybe? Yes yes?

YES!

“I can save you.”

Morty had looked over one day, after being contemplative and quiet, and the words that left him were a bombshell dropped on Rick’s brain. He turned to look at his grandson, eyebrow raised, and chuckled a little, rolling his eyes.



“Ye-yeah, Morty? Y-you think s-so?” It was obvious that the elder didn’t believe that. He didn’t need saving. What he needed was another drink.

“Yea-yeah, Rick. I… I do.” But his tone wavered and he looked down at his feet, shame written across his features. Maybe he really did know better. It was almost cute; had Rick been a little less inhibited, maybe he would have kissed him. Sadly, he knew Jerry was home and willing to burst into the garage at any given moment.

“We’ll see.” Ominous as it sounded, Rick didn’t have high hopes for himself, unlike his hopes for Morty.

—-

“M-Morty, go!” Rick yelled, hollering as loud as he could with a chest full of broken ribs.

“I– I’m not leaving you, Rick!” Morty looked like he was going to put his foot down, be adamant, and not permit Rick this last good thing. It was infuriating, but so endearing that Rick’s face betrayed him, a gentle smile on his lips as he tugged the other in for a slow kiss. The wheezing sound of his breathing left Morty in a panic, but he didn’t say anything, just relished in the soft touches.

“You can’t save me, Morty.” Rick muttered, pulling away barely enough to shoot a portal beneath his grandson, “But you can redeem me. Be better than me. Go on and do something good with your life.” Monologuing wasn’t his favorite thing, or maybe it was, but it at least kept all of the other’s fearful complaints out of his head. If he was going to die, that was fine. He was an old man, he’d done his fair share of everything, but Morty had barely begun to live. Maybe he’d get that chance, now.

After a refreshing ride along the coastline to calm his nerves, Dwight disembarked his horse and tied him to the fence outside the church. He could do nothing to prevent his smile nor the almost painful butterflies in his stomach. The church was empty save the minister and two people Dwight did not know, just like they had arranged it in the good old days.
He took his place and waited for her. He did not have to wait long. She walked gracefully on her own, wearing a fine satin gown with blue flowers decorating her golden hair. He noted that he would die soon if he did not regain his breath. She took her place beside him, where it would now always be, and smiled.
The entire ceremony was a blur. Soon it was over and the moment he had been long waiting for had arrived. He savoured it: the feel of her soft red lips, the ever-present taste of honey and sugared almonds, the sight of his ring as he touched her porcelain face. The minister had subtly cleared his throat twice but Dwight did not care. He could not stop. He could not let her go. He would not let her go.

/

The force of the blow seared his face. His dream had allowed him a few moments escape but he was now forced to face his grim reality.
His arms ached as they were hastily pulled along, his legs tore through his uniform as they skidded along the uneven ground, his nose and eyes burned from the rank seawater, his head was cold as if it had suffered some sort of injury.

As he came face to face with a large iron gate, the two accompanying soldiers muttered something in French which Dwight could not understand.
The gate flew open and Dwight gasped in horror at the sight before him: an impossibly large building, the grounds of which were peppered with numerous dead men who adorned the same uniform as Dwight.
He stared emptily at the intimidating building, the agonising screams from within pierced his ears and scarred his soul.
His entire being filled with dread. He now doubted his dream would ever come true.
