Here is a little checklist sheet I have made up that may help when getting things ready for your new rattie. When picking
up your new baby from RRRA we offer a great take home package to cover some of these items.
New Rat Check List
( ) Cage- Martins Cage, Critter Nation, or similar (1/2 inch bar spacing)
( ) Food- Can be purchased at RRRA (no petsmart/petco mixes unless its Oxbow)
( ) Carrier- Great place for the rat to go in while you clean, or small trips. (can also get from
Raining Rats when you pick up included in package)
( ) Toys- Small bird Toys work well.- One comes in take home package.
( ) Beds- Hammock, Baskets, Box (RRRA offers these through the store)
( ) Water Bottle- I like lixit brand
( ) Rock, Brick or Lava Perch- Wonderful for keeping little toenails trim and box training!
( ) Litter Pan- Something not to high sided, we use simple baking pans.
( ) Litter- I like Swheat Scoop or generic, yesterdays news, or Corn Kob.
( ) Fabric- Strips of fleece fabric cut, to be used as bedding or in a dig box.
( ) Bedding- if planning to use aspen, or paper base (not a fan of care fresh)
( ) Food Dish- I like ceramic best, they are heavy duty and can’t be knocked over.
( ) Wheel- *Must be over 11inch round Wodent Wheel or my fave found HERE!
( ) Tubes- *I use PVC pipe from Home Depot - Comes in Tote package from Raining Rats.
( ) Rope Perch- *Mine adore these.
( ) RRRA Mush- *Great warm food - Comes in Raining Rats Take home package
( ) Fabric liners *Can be bought online to fit your cage.
