My sister has two rats and for christmas I tend to get them something little... Not spending anymore than £5, preferably less!
They don't get along particularly well so I'm reluctant to get something they could fight over. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what to get her for them? She has more hammocks than she needs and they've got chew toys. I was thinking about a rope or two? Or maybe this? (http://www.ratwarehouse.com/shop_detail.php?item=179&cat=6)
Also, any good online shops?

I dont own a rat but have two guinea pigs. They have this http://www.ratwarehouse.com/shop_detail.php?item=89&cat=6 and its great. They love it as it makes "treat time" exciting and encourages them to wear teeth down ect.:)

Has anyone used that site before? How long did economy postage take to get to you? (I'm not a cheapskate, just a student!)

I would get it from a pet shop as most of the things on there are in pet shops, just to be on the safe side.:)

I don't know where the pet shop round me is - I think it's right out by a big park and ride and I really can't be fussed with running around Canterbury to try and find it! (Unless any Kent/Canterbury people know where one is, in reach of the shopping centre?!)

You can never have too many hammocks ;)
Or how about a treat ball? My rats absolutely love theirs, I had to get them a rabbit one though because I have 7 and the rat size one just didn't hold enough. It's so cute watching them play football with it to get the food out :)
Mine also love this little wooden toy called a Knot nibbler, they also like little plastic cat balls with bells inside them, I have one that has to organise them at one side of the cage and if you move them he gets upset and sets about fixing them again haha. Dog chews and biscuits too, those are pretty cheap and they love them.
