My 12 year old son has recently decided he would like a rat. After much research and deliberation we have decided we would like to add two female dumbos to our family. (We have had rats before our last rat, Snitch, RIP. Passed away about 5 years ago). I am going to build a large cage(similar to the way rabbit cages are built) using the crimpers and the square chicken wire. Probably with 3 levels and tubes and rope ladders and other toys...I am very excited, our whole family loves rats! We're in the process of looking for a responsible breeder with in an hr or so drive from us. I'd love to see pics of anybody else dumbos, or home made rat cages even. Thanks!
