Talking Yay!!!

I had mentioned a while back that I could NOT for the life of me get the brats to stop pooping on the shelves. So everytime I cleaned the bottom of the cage (the bathroom ) I also had to tear apart the shelves & scrub those too. I think that is part of why Winnie was always trying to bite me when I reached into ger cage... she was protesting the shelves moving & changing all the time.

Well... someone suggested putting bedding in the corner of all the shelves. I wasn't sure which type of bedding they meant so what I did is used old pillow cases & towels. I cut a small hole in the corner & used a zip tie (cable tie) & secured it to one corner of each shelf so they can't pull it off. THEY LOVE IT!!
and...

NO MORE DIRTY SHELVES!!

Thanks to whomever it was that offered that advice!

The bedding in the poo no no spots works great doesn't it?! Glad you solved that problem. I had that same problem myself and then learned about their sleeping habits and such, so I just started filling the shelves up with bedding! Now if I can get them al to be 100% litter box when they are out of the cage!

It was you Janie!! THANK YOU SOO MUCH! cleaning the cage has been sooo much easier!

I can not get ANY of mine to go in liter boxes when out of cage... BUT they all go back to the cage to potty about 98% of the time. (I leave the bottom door open for them)
