The best affordable rat cages can be a hard thing to decide on even when you are given the size and all the information you need. Sometimes it’s just a lot easier if someone points out a few for you to go off of.
There are just too many to choose from and there are a lot of opinions on how a rat cage should look like. So here’s a few that I’ve found to be good. I’m going to assume here that you’ll have at least two rats.
Just a side note, I’m pretty picky about rat cages and I also think even if you have 2-3 rats, it’s better to get a bigger rat cage in case you want to expand your rat family.
However, even if you’re not looking to get more than 2-3 rats, it’s nice to give your rats more cage space. And usually, with the larger rat cages, the dollar per inch of space is cheaper than getting a “just enough” cage.
I highly encourage a bigger cage for rats or get a “just enough” cage for two rats. You should always be keeping your rats in pairs and spaying and neutering as necessary.
