You have everything nessesary but they like to come out alot so maybe a playpen and some outside the cage toys.
remember, rats chew out a LOT of supplies. get a hamster ball, or a smaller cage for when you clean out the cage. Put a sock or a towel in there for when hey go to sleep which is a LOT during the day. Both my rats went to sleep in the same sock. Girl rats get tumors often, so save money to get them removed. Get them removed as soon as you see one because you don’t want them to lose too much skin in the process.
Unless the food bowl is pretty heavy or attached to the cage, your playful rats will probably knock it over on a regular basis. Even though our bowls are attached, our rats will dig through their food & make a glorious mess while looking for their favorite tidbits. The litter bos should also be firmly attached to the cage or it will become a toy before they learn how to use it.
You might want to get a variety of chew treats for your rats. There are lots of different kinds/flavors/textures & it’s hard to say what a particular rat would enjoy. Our boys love peanut butter flavored dog biscuits but our girls have lost interest in them.
Some rats enjoy those hard plastic balls that have bells inside (normally sold as cat or ferret toys). If your cage doesn’t have an exercise wheel, you might get a Silent Spinner or a Wodent Wheel, although some rats don’t see the point to running on a wheel (all 5 of our current rats enjoy this, but many previous rats have ignored their wheels).
It’s a good idea to phone your local vet clinics to find out who sees exotics so you’ll know where to take your little guys if they ever get sick or injured. Also, it’s nice to have some $ set aside for vet expenses if/when needed.
