This tutorial is pretty self-explanatory, so I won’t bother typing a bunch of words unless someone gets stuck – if you do get stuck, just let me know! One thing I will say is that after you’ve added the treats, don’t be shy about adding more cardboard strips – really jam them on! The more you can add, the harder it will be for your rats to get it open.
My ratties love tearing these treat puzzles apart. I like to throw one or two in when I leave for work. Even though the puzzles will be destroyed in just a few minutes, it’s something to keep them busy and mentally stimulated.
So, I know there are a lot of good tutorials on how to create a no-sew fringe blankie. To make this tutorial a little different from those, I am incorporating the no-sew blankie into a coated wire basket that can be fastened to the side of your rat cage. My rats go nuts for these fringe blankies – they love to untie the knots or chew them off. It’s a little bit infuriating, but because the blankets are so easy to make, I don’t really mind!
This tutorial will show how to create a fleece hideout that will attach to the side of your rat cage and can easily slip on and off for cleaning.
