So My 5 male rats are super spoiled. Best part of moving is I have lots of cardboard to make them stuff with.

This box the kids had played with after unpacking and it was SO beat up. So I upcycled it.

My Double Critter Nation is wonderful and I LOVE it. But I needed an easy way for my boys to get in and out on thier own.

So with some rough sketching and lots of packing tape I made a set of stairs for my boys. They use them when they play in my craft space. to go into the cage to go potty, get a drink, or eat a snack. Sometimes to take a nap and then play some more. Wink


Proof they do know how it works. lol Wink

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Heeey Eliea!!  Cheesy Glad to see you! These critter steps make me happy; I like to think that there is a special honor in Animal Heaven or the karmic circle of life for people who create things that help animals move about more freely or safely.  Smiley

Not that it is necessary AT ALL, but it would be fantastic and ridiculous (in the best possible way) to hot-glue some ornate trim on the sides, or maybe paint/draw trompe l'oeil pillars and a palace motif. With little framed rat portraits on the sides. Adding a red velvet carpet (out of wide holiday-season ribbon) is probably not the best thing on surfaces where they could potentially pee...but in the rat palace of my imagination, I still like the idea.  Cheesy

This is the joy of having a pet is it not ? If you weren't able to find a little bit of entertainment and enjoyment in making the lives of your fur friends better, then you shouldn't be a person who has animals in your home I think! Pretty sure that every pet parents would agree that you need to be at least a little bit crazy about buying stuff for your pets when you've decide to welcome one into your home!

I totally wanted to cover it with wooden printed contact paper, but since my measurments wound up off that hasn't happened yet. Eventually though I SOOO want to.
I'd also love to add a decorative "railing" but then they could only access from one side and that's kind of a pain. So haven't fully thought that out yet. Wink
