Thumbs up Potty Trained?

Do you have your hedgie potty trained?

Have you tried potty training?

What are your thoughts on this issue for hedgies?

When I had Isobella she was potty trained. But I usually had to clean it at least twice a day because she was a neat freak. I am not sure if the hedgie she lives with now is potty trained or if they continue to use a litter box with her.

Grover poops wherever he please but he does tend to go more often in a certain corner of his cage.

We tried potty training Louie but had no luck. (I know someone who has been trying for 2 years!)

Since hedgies are pooping machines it sure would be nice to have him trained!

Hey
I voted but forgot to post! lol Anyways, YES me girls are both litter trained! Well, i just put a big litter pan in there and B' just used it right away, but for Penny i had to like put the litter pan in, then like, fill her cage up with towels and stuff so it was like there was no where to go but in the box kinda..I just put the wheel in the litter box now and everything ends up in the litter box. Occasionally they will 'miss' the boxes but they do very well usually

YAH, specialy as i use liner so it makes it even grosser if they are not litter trained. I can just change hte litter box every day or two and dont have to change the liner until they get dirty some how (i jsut do them about once a week)

Actually, My mom works at the Hospital, so she got me about 6 of these sheets. They are made off a good fabric(not sure what) that cant snag or anything so they cant tear it, and it has a thick plastic mat thing in between the layers. I think they ight be for people that have Baldder problems at nigh, so they keep the bed dry!?!? But they work GREAT! I use them to cover the whole cage, then i also have the litter boxes...
