    Okay i went to QD today and went to have a look in the pet section.

    And they had a rat cage, i wouldn't even put a robo in it

    it was about

    20cmx20cmx34cm

    the hamster cage was worse !!

    20x20x25 :(:(:(:(

    i cant belive they sell it.

    and the rabbit hutch :( 2ft by 1ft :(

    Okay what i need you guys to do is write somthing of why they shouldn't sell the cages, like a petition.

    Then im going to go as soon as i mend my 'new' camera im going and taking secret photo's then as soon as i get information built up im going to see QD and try and get them to take all the cages off the shelves.

    so with your help :)

    rats people
    hamster people
    mpuse people
    gp people
    rabbits people

    etc

    all of them need to have things to back up why not to sell them cages

    OMG I saw one in a local petshop in Liverpool and it called itself a rat cage....... dunno exact dimensions, but using my tape measure it must of been about 20cmx20cmx25cm..... you couldn't even fit a dwarf hamster in that, never mind a rat or more!

    Might be better off contacting the RSPCA, but if those cages meet the minimum requirements per animal theyre intended for then there isn't a lot you can do, but worth a try, you never know.

    I also saw those cages in QD today and was disgusted. They aren't big enough for a snail to live in let alone a rat.

    I hate QD!!

    lol creativelc we should go together, and complain!!

    What i need people to do is like say why the cages are too small and why no animal should have to live in it!

    okay

    somthing like

    A rat needs alot of space for climbing and toys rats also need to live in pairs in that 'rat' cage you cant have one rat let alone 2


    somthing like that so i can print it of and let the manerger see them lol

    its just so goddamn annoying that they sell cages like that and some numpty will think, OMG only 14.99 for a rat cage bargin imma going to put 15 rats in ther from pets at home and let them breed, i might put a rabbit in ther aswell
    woo ¬¬ :eek:ut:

    that is a good idea though

    it would give them a kick up the arse!

    *hmmmmm thinks*

    can i just go in ther and smash the cages up and say they fell of the shelf so obviosly aren't rat proof

    :001_tt2: :idea:

    OMG thats outrageous! Cant believe anyone would keep a flea in a cage that small let alone a rat or hamster!

    Ok here goes....


    Hamsters need as much space as you can give them to keep them from getting bored, when they are bored they start to chew the bars of the cage which can cause brain damage. Anyone who willingly sells a small cage is ultimately providing people with the means to cause cruelty to the animals they keep!

    Oh I didn't know bar chewing could cause brain damage :O

    Sausage used to do that all the time, but I haven't noticed him doing it recently... maybe because I've extended his cage and tried to make it more exciting for him :)
