    My cat is determined to drink out of my glass of water rather than his bowl. He keeps knocking it over too. Pain in the bum but I love him!

    ^^ I've heard that's quite common with cats but I've had no experience with it. On the Sphynx forum I'm on, a fair few members leave mugs of water about the house for their cats rather than a bowl cause they prefer to drink from them. Odd! Haha.

    Ferrets too, haha. I always offer mine cups of water to drink from. they think they're people.
    My amazing custom bedding arrived at my in-laws place today (sent it there instead as shipping to an apartment building tends to be a nightmare 70% of the time)- there next in a couple of weeks for my neice's first birthday. Excited! Here's a picture of my order:

    so thanks for all the advice on rats guys looking at cages at the moment would something like this one be okay
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Home-Sweet-C...7686916&sr=1-4
    or this one
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/RAT-CAGE-ZAN...7686916&sr=1-2
    I'm assuming that the first one would be better as the bar space in the second one might be a little big space between bars is 13mm?

    With rats, go as big as you can afford/fit in. Then stuff it full of hanging stuff etc. Like the stuff Benji got for her ferrets. I had rats for years and they LOVE those things.

    Benji, I'm still jealous of your ferret nation and I don't even have ferrets anymore hahaha. Such an aesthetically pleasing cage and perfect for them. I miss it almost as much as I miss my ferrets!

    Tig used to be obsessed with painting water (back when I used to paint). Keeping her away from that was a nightmare.
    Current: Double nostrils, philtrum, nipple. Various cartilage, 9/16'' lobes.
    Retired: Nipple, navel x4, wrist, nape, MD, tongue web x2, lower lip piercings x4, nostril, helix, lobe piercings, septum, cheek piercings.
    4 tattoos.

    What is my life for and what am I going to do with it? I don't know and I'm afraid. I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want.

    thanks so would either of those two cages be big enough? affordability isn't a problem but I don't know if I can go much bigger as space in my flat is sort of limited
    and what sort of hanging stuff would you recommend?

    The second one supposedly has pine shelves, which is lethal to rats.
