Now a semi-closed rattery/hamstery! The animal room has been moved. Visitors will no longer be allowed in the official animal room unless I know you personally. Clients will still be welcomed into my home. New photos of my set up are now available.

The very large bins are mostly for Syrian Hamsters or paired-up/nursing rats. The bins measure 32 inches long and 19 inches wide. The tall cages are critter nation triples.
All cages are cleaned twice a week.
I completely understand wanting to see the conditions in person, but to help improve biosecurity and therefor the safety of my animals, I felt this change was necessary. I will always put my animals first!
Custom videos of the animal room are available upon request to clients who sign up for my wait list.
The top two smaller bins are used for first time rat moms. This is because new rat moms can sometimes have issues with keeping their babies in their warm nest if the cage is large. Moms will spend no longer than 12 days in there.
These bins are large! They measure 32'' wide and 19'' long. Total of 608 square inches. They are used to house hamsters, opossums, or rats with litters.
The small wired purple cage is a transportation cage. The containers with blue lids store the dry rat foods. The smaller screw top container beside it stores the hamster seed/block mix.
Shown above is the examination and storage table. Rats will be examined for health on this table when necessary. Medical supplies, utility tools, extra bowls, meal worm growing containers, spot cleaning supplies, etc are stored here.
