Product Review: Super Pet Toys
From the RMCA web site, June 2002
This sleeping spot is wrapped with colorful rope and designed to hang from the attached sisal rope. The opening is large enough for 2 small rats to sleep together or for one large rat alone. The inside made of durable plastic makes for easy cleaning. My smaller females enjoy climbing inside for a snooze. Reasonably priced at approximately $5.50.
Critter Cubby-Hole Ball
Drawback: There have been two reported rat deaths after the sisal rope had been chewed and the ball fell face down trapping the two rats inside. It is recommended that airholes be cut in the back of the ball for safety.
The Hog Hollow, a tube for running through or just plain hiding out, to escape annoying little ones or that dominant Alpha Rat. Made of durable plastic, easy to clean and place anywhere that your rats like to frequent. Priced at approximately $5.50.
Hog Hollow Hide-Out
I found that after trying this with the girls they much preferred the Critter Cubby-hole.
MIGHT BE FUN
The Critter Inn, easy clean plastic, that makes for a nice cozy sleeping place or hideaway, especially when adding some of the colorful nontoxic paper crinkles. My rats love to hide their yummies in here when saving them for later munching. The Critter Inn has two attached plastic hooks in back that allow you to fasten it securely to the cage while sitting on the shelf or to raise up higher depending on rats preference.
