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.


Optional Items:


(  ) 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.

(  ) Wood Ledges, from Adorkable Pets.
