Rat Cages, Habitats & Accessories

When shopping for rat enclosures to house your little pets, you'll want to look for ones with enough space for exercise, play and rest. Chewy carries a range of great rat enclosures, along with all the rat cage accessories you need to make your rat cages feel cozy and welcoming for your rodents. Here are a few things you should consider before picking out a new rat home.

Rats are very active and love to climb, so large rat habitats with multiple levels and platforms are ideal. The best rat habitats are usually wire enclosures with horizontal bars that encourage climbing and a solid floor to hold in bedding and protect delicate rat feet. Vertical bars are fine if you provide other things to climb, just be sure that bars in any direction are spaced no more than roughly a half inch apart, because rats are great escape artists. You can also cover a wire cage bottom with solid flooring like plastic or laminate if necessary.

Avoid glass enclosures like aquariums because they won't provide enough ventilation for your rats and tend not to have enough height or surfaces for them to climb. Wire cages made for chinchillas or ferrets work very well for rats, and you can find some cool designs with lots of room in the small animal section of our site.

Create extra vertical space in your rat cage using hanging rat hammocks & beds; rats love jumping into them and enjoy the feeling of safety a hanging bed provides. Be sure to put a few rat hideouts or nest boxes in there, too. You'll want to line your nest box with lots of fresh rat bedding made of paper or non-toxic wood and spread a generous layer of bedding on the floor of the cage, too. Tunnels, rope ladders, branches and shelves add extra living space to the cage and provide healthy outlets for exercise, while rat toys bring out rats' naturally playful personalities. You can even design an exciting rat playground in your rat enclosure with a few key cage accessories and a little creativity. Whatever habitat you decide to create for your rats, you'll find some great rat enclosures and all the accessories you need to make them amazing at Chewy!

Frequently Asked Questions about Rat Cages, Habitats & Accessories

What enclosure is best for rats?

A wire enclosure with a solid (not wire) floor is best for rats, as it provides good ventilation and will be relatively easy to clean. A solid floor is a must to protect rat feet from painful wear and a condition called bumblefoot, and all ramps and shelves should be solid, as well. Multi-level enclosures are best for rats, and cages should provide at least two cubic feet of space per rat, if not more. Bigger is always better when it comes to rat cages, so get as much horizontal and vertical space as you can. Some cages are even expandable in case your rat family grows!

Can you keep 2 rats in the same enclosure?

You can keep two or more rats in the same enclosure, and you definitely should! Rats are very sociable animals and will enjoy some companionship. Having multiple rats will encourage lots of healthy play and exercise and help keep your pets mentally healthy, as well. However, be careful about housing two unfixed male rats together because they may fight, and avoid an unfixed male-female pair if you don't want to wind up with rat babies.

Are wire enclosures bad for rats?

Wire enclosures are ideal for rats, but you must make sure the floor, ramps and platforms are made of solid surface material and not wire, as these can injure rat feet and cause a painful condition known as bumblefoot. Hard plastic is also better than solid metal for surfaces, so consider getting a cage with a plastic floor, ramps and shelves. You can also cover a wire cage bottom with a solid surface material and get ramp covers and liners for cages that have wire metal surfaces.
