Default Q for rat owners!!

Where do you get your hammocks?

I bought one at Petco the other day, just to see if they would actually lay in it and sleep in it before I bought nice ones.

So, where do you guys buy yours?

I found this etsy shop, which I LUUURVE and will probably get some from, but I'm open to other recommendations too!

From the shop I love:

I want it soooo bad, but I know they would have the hangy parts chewed in a couple days!! Maybe I should just buy the metal thingies for when they do chew them.

From another shop I have been stalking on etsy:

This one has the metal things that I like.

I used to just make my own. No-sew hammocks were my best friends: http://www.suzsugargliders.com/nosewaccessories.htm

She does a really nice job and always has the most awesome fabric choices.

Now that I have a sewing machine I'll be making my own, most likely, but I'll still use her for things I don't know how to make (ie cubes).

I never bothered buying any fancy ones. They always loved tearing them up, so it was really just a waste of money! I always either made my own out of fabric scraps or something similar..

I too make my own. Way too expensive to buy (though not saying the people overcharge, its just they get destroyed...even my males who werent big chewers took care of them pretty quickly).

They are so easy to make, even the cubes etc.

These are examples of things I've made, no pattern and very quickly, usually with the kids "help" lol....and I am NOT a sewer. I make these and baby carriers lol

I always made my own, too. LOL! Even if they were only as simple as a single layer of fleece, cut in a square or rectangle, with holes poked in the corners to hook binder clips, through. If I was fancy, I would make TWO layers and just hook them together.

I've also done the type where you cut two pieces with fringe, and then knot then together to create a two-layer hammock. I'm sure you could do the same thing to make a tube.

I also knit/crocheted a lot of hammocks for my rats.

How do you sew cubes!!

Seriously all I know how to do is sew 2 pieces of fabric together. I can't make things lol.

I had a pattern once upon a time for making no-sew cubes. Hrm. Going to have to look for it for you!
