Another go at getting it right

We keep tweaking the layout of the rat room (and the house in general, really) and with having four cages on the go it’s important to make sure the space is used as effectively as possible. Biscay spent a lot of last week in the back bedroom because there wasn’t really anywhere satisfactory to keep his cage in the rat room. Then, during cage cleaning this afternoon, J suggested some alterations which would make everything a lot easier and more logical. He did all the moving of furniture in between washing cage contents, while I dealt as usual with emptying and cleaning the cages themselves.

So now, when you open the rat room door, instead of a load of boxes of comics with a throw over them, you see this:

There was a lot of scrambling around and working out who the new neighbours are but it all seems to have calmed down again now. Though Biscay is doing his best to persuade me that he shouldn’t be alone:

    Aaaw, that face! Biscay is adorable, and I’m sure he’ll be happier when he’s approved for company. The rat room is looking good.
