Title: Christmas Cages! Let's see you & your rat's decorating skillz...
Post by: catsandscales on December 06, 2010, 09:03:15 PM
I'll start... I only got one winter/Christmas pattern of fleece, but I bought little stockings, a Christmas-basket, and a door-hanger with jingle bells on it to supplement the Christmas theme. ;) And I STILL don't have my rats, but when we pick them up in 12 days they will have a cozy, festive abode! Let's see your Christmas set-ups!

Whole frankencage:

Top portion, hammocks & liners by moi!

Bottom portion. There are dollar tree cat toys and some candy-cane shaped rawhides in their Christmas stockings. :3

Just for kicks... a stocking-shaped snuggle-sack I made! I thought about getting a dollar tree stocking, but it seemed like it would be too messy to clean up. =P

Awwwww! That looks great! And I can't believe it's only 12 days until you get them!!!

I'll have to stop at the dollar store (when I'm off bed rest for my back.) and pick up some cute little mini stockings and xmas stuff.  :ratsanta2:

I know, it's actually gone by surprisingly quickly! =D I'm so stoked... I miss them and I haven't even met them yet. XD

 Hope your back gets better ASAP! You've got cages to decorate! =P

I got some decorations today from the Dollar Store. My cage isn't quite as decked out as yours (yours is awesome!) but the ratties were very interested in the stockings, garland and bells!  :ratsanta1:

This would be my 1st year cage decorating!  :rudolph2:

Here's some pictures! Upper part of the FN cage:
