So I must be going crazy. Before we had Jingo, we had two adorable ratty girls for a couple years, Penny and Juno. I have been wanting more for a long time but the timing hasn't been right for a number of reasons. Well, I am finally getting around to securing a new cage, new stuff to fill it with, etc, before finally bringing home a pair (No, I don't have any rats picked out; we're going to see what comes along) and I am trying to see if I can use a lot of what I already have for bird toys for them. Those of you with rats, can you help me sort this all out? So far I think I know the following are safe: Hardwood beads Loofah Vine Willow Apple Cardboard Paper Popsicle Sticks Seagrass Cork Coconut shell Cottonwood Cotton Acrylic Cholla Stainless Steel And unsafe are: Pine (fresh) Balsa Soft Plastics Rubber Small Plastic beads (pony, etc) Yucca What I am unclear on are: Leather Bamboo Pine (kiln dried) (I've heard it's okay if they can't pee on it??) Pinecones Palm Anything else I am missing?
