My home
Ok, I am a bit slow on the posting recently. A lot of things have been going on here at the rodent apartment. I have re-arranged the rooms in which the babies occupy to make sure everyone is in the best spot for temperature and social interaction.
The hedgehogs are best kept in the kitchen, the warmest and darkest spot in the place. The mice are kept in the living room next to the couch for much needed human interaction. The guinea pig is also in the living room with the door to his cage always kept open so as not to feel in-prisoned and allow for easy access to mom and dad. The hamster is kept in the middle between the bedroom and the living room as to allow him peace and quiet with mild interaction, he can be testy if his nap is disturbed. Anyway I took some photos of the new arrangement,

Heres my babies, Moo-latte, Beat and Smokey.
