I made this little comfy pouch for my two pet rats to sleep in, since they like to be covered and cozy Smiley

I have seen little hammocks and pouches and houses for rodents in pet stores, but they're always over-priced, and rats like to tear things apart, so why not make your own?

I came up with this pattern to custom fit my rats' cage. I used blue corduroy for the outside and light yellow fleece for the lining. Nice and cozy Smiley

The lighting isn't the greatest in these pictures, sorry!

Here's what it looks like. The whole thing is about 10" x 8".



Another view:



What it looks like on your way in Tongue



Here's one of my rats, Pokey, modelling it for you



And here's both of my rats all squished in there.



Aaaand one more.. thats Ludo on the left, and Pokey. They also like to use it as a cushion Smiley




If you're interested, here's the video tutorial for this that I put up on my crafts/sewing channel on youtube. Feel free to subscribe if you like my videos!

Thanks for looking Smiley
