No litter training 4 them

Well I have been trying to litter train my ratties for a while. I am at a lost because everytime I put the litterbox in the cage they dig everything out if I give them a flat one they throw the litterpan everywhere. I tried different litters one for bedding one for litter box then amoung numerous other things. The girls win.

Have you tried those chinchilla baths? They are like little homes, a friend of mine uses one as her litter box and it seems to work. It's also nice and deep so it's harder for them to kick things every where. Here a pic of it below.

No I never thought about a chin house. Great idea. I tried a gallon jug cut in half tied to the cage bars to suspend it in the air so they couldn't spead the litter everywhere and all that did was contribute to alot of mess!

with th epotty training, i found that once a day when they're awake, go through a put all loose poos in the litterbox. they'll watch you to see what your'e doing. eventually they'll either figure it out or just care not to lol, but my boys mookie (rip) and timmmehhh both picked it up easily. the new guy peter is taking his sweet time lol


p.s. i use a rubbermaid dish bin, i'ts about 6 inches deep and about 12x12 inches, perfect size so they can dig and not pee "over" the edge lol

I was using the bottom half of a gallon jug.
