Giant rope for cheaps

Post by acapae_wolf » Fri Mar 18, 2016 3:06 am

B&M Bargains currently have really big ropes for only £3.99 (previously they've been £4.99, and elsewhere similar are usually around a tenner). Having such a large diameter they're going to be pretty easy for all but the least agile rats, but you can make ropes harder by having them more saggy/ less taught, and it's still lovely variation in enrichment :)

Sian said I didn't need one (which is probably true!) but she did pose for this photo to show the size.

Wow, I've never seen them that big; I think we'll be bagging a couple tomorrow (especially when the rope bridges in P@H are not much different, and cost £11 :shock: )

I'd check that because they're opening loads of new ones at the minute; the one near me only opened last summer.

Thanks Beri! I went to B&M specifically to get one of these yesterday after seeing this post a few days ago. I was in luck, they had three left in my store. Now just need to figure out how I am going to attach it to the cage, I am thinking it will be a plastic tie jobby :D

Great find!!! Have bought 2 already and they are easily zip tied to the bars of the cage.
