Today my daughter got a new cage for her pet rats. It came with ramps and food bowls but needed a few homey affects.
So we ripped up an old pillow case and I crocheted them a little hammock. We wanted something cotton, not too easy to chew, and strong enough to climb and snuggle on.
In winter we make them little wool sacks to hide in but it gets a bit hot here in summer. Hence the cotton. Its basically a triangle in SC and then a little white around the edges and to make the ties.
My daughter used the left over strips of the pillow case to make a rope and added beads and things to play with so nothing was wasted. She added some beads, a bracelet and used an old ear ring too.
Rats like to have lots of different things to play with and chew and they have been having a lot of fun today in there new house.
