A bird may love a fish, signore, but where will they live?

I’ve been thinking a lot about animal cages lately.

My two rats, Nim and Noi, are over due for a change in scenery. I bought an antique iron birdcage this summer and was able to bring it back to life with lots of tlc and a fresh coat of paint. The girls have yet to move in because their current wire and plastic home, while being less than lovely to look at, is much larger.

When the tv broke, we lucked into a new one that will necessitate rearranging the living room. Now is the perfect time to come up with a way to make the rats’ home both comfortable for them and aesthetically pleasing to me.

While searching for inspiration I came across this incredible creation.



The Duplex aquarium by Constance Guisset is a beautiful and poetic design. While not very practical (imagine changing the water and the potential mess from the birds) I think the concept is pure genius!


Guisset has also produced another spin on the aquarium/cage combo:
