I had a brainwave so I thought I'd share!!

All you need is: scissors, old bed sheet, metal shower hooks.

Step 1 - Cut 6 long strips however long you need the ladder to be and however wide depending on how chunky you want it to be. Mine were about 3 inches wide. Knot together 3 of them and then knot the remaining 3.



Step 2 - Work out how many rungs your ladder will need then multiply by 3. I needed 5 rungs so I would need 15 smaller strips. Cut as many smaller strips as you will need, again however chunky you need it. Mine were about 1 inch wide. Double knot them in bunches of 3 and plait them, leaving enough room to tie another double knot in the ends.



Step 3 - Begin to plait your long strips and then when necessary, plait the rungs into the long strip. The double knot is supposed to hold the rung in place. Plait it in very tightly (it hurts your thumbs after a while!)



Plait in all of your rungs and tie the long strips with a knot when you get to the end.



Step 4 - Now do the other side! When you're done, add the metal shower hooks and voilą!



In the cage! The boy ratties actually use it! smiley



It could also be hung from a shelf instead of the roof of your cage or just wherever you think best. People in the UK who can't get the shower hooks because we don't have dollar stores (I checked the pound shops), I got 24 for about £3 on ebay! smiley
