Homemade Hammock

Rats love to lie around in hammocks. You can buy them or you can make them for free! These hammocks are fun because the rats can either lie in them or on top of them. First, take an old pair of jeans, the kind you have lying around that you will never ever wear again. Then, cut a small hammock size piece from the leg. Make 4 slits in the top of the hammock, one for each corner. Hang it from the top of the cage with yarn or old shower hooks if you have them. Last, add rats!

You may have noticed that giant hole in the middle is not part of the instructions. It's probably important to mention rats tend to improvise a bit if you don't get it just the way they want it! It should also be noted after this process has taken place you will need to make another one, repeat above instructions.
