litter training

  1. Cats
    Right now I am trying to litter train my kitten. She is a little over eight weeks old, and it takes me FOREVER to get her to go in her pan. I have to sit and try to encourage her for 5 minutes before she decies to go poop or pee. Any tips for encouraging her to use the litter pan? I've tried...

    I have a 4 month old lop eared male bunny I want to litter train. He has a cage that he has access to all the time and I open the door and he can roam the house. He does not seem to want to return to the cage to go at all. He is not too bad when he's on the floor, but he loves jumping up on...

    Sorry I am back. I think for the first 4 months of my little sweet pea's life she had HORRIBLE litter habbits. meaning none at all. Not sure how long the training process is supossed to take. I have been putting ALL the hay in the box, which she sits in all the time, and actually leaves to do...

    I just got rats for the first time and they've been great so far! They haven't bitten me or my boyfriend, and seem to have no problems being held. I've only had them for about a week or 2, but I decided I want to try to litter box train them before too long. (I thought it would be easier for...
  6. Guinea Pig Discussion
    Hi again, 2nd question..I've had my 3 piggies for about 4 years now. Is it too late to try to litter train them? I heard you put their food and hay in their litter box because if they eat in there they will pee in there also. Is this true? Isn't that unhealthy for them to eat where they pee?

    Hi everyone :) I need some help with litter box training Cookie & fudge please. I don't know what I'm doing wrong but I just can't get them to use the litter box all the time. They use it occaisionally and I think that's probably just a coincidence that they happen to be sitting in it when...
  8. Chinchilla Discussion
    Hi, I've been thinking about litter training my chin, since I've noticed he's only going in one spot in his cage. From what I was reading, he would need a little dish or pan of some sort and some litter and some urine soaked bedding to draw him to it, right? What kind of litter do I look for...

    Hi, I'm having a problem with my little Joey. He's about 4 1/2 months old and I've had him for about a month. He's done great with the potty breaking, only going in his litter pan in his house but lately when he comes out to run, he's been sneaking (and I do mean sneaking, cuz he only does this...

    Cool it worked! She seems to be enjoying her new space. She loves being out and she whimpers when she is made to go back in while my daughter is at school. Never knew bunnies were so vocal. :D

    Outside his cage, Flash has trained me to put his litter box in the spot where he kept pooping, and to give him treats when he jumps in the box. So we're doing quite well in the litter training when he's not in his cage. I don't think he's peed or pooped outside his litter box and cage since I...

    i have just acquired a newborn kitten. Mama cat abandoned the litter. The kitten i have is the only one left. I am not sure about her age. I have been feeding her with a bottle every 2-3 hours, keeping her warm in a crate with blankets and an electric blanket on low. she seems to be doing...
  13. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    I was just wondering and getting a little concerned about Husky. I know it's probably normal, but when I get Husky out of the cage-as much as he is a little darling and will fall asleep anywhere- he just poops and poops and poops! I know it's not a big deal, but it starts to smell and I dont...

    My Rayray used to just pee where ever he was instead of using the litter tray because he is to lazy, mine only poop in theirs. Now Rayray will get out of his hammock, back up on the cage bars and pee out of the cage onto my floor! Do you know maybe why he is doing this or maybe its just because...
  15. Rabbit Discussion
    I found a stray bunny Tuesday night. He (She?) is obviously domesticated, and I'm probably going to end up keeping the little critter, since I've already put out the word in my neighborhood, and I can't find anyone who's looking for a lost bunny. He's pretty happy in my apartment so far...

  17. Rabbit Discussion
    I just adopted a bunny and he (I think) is about a year old or so. I read what Kibblesmom wrote and I was wondering how I can train my bunny. he poops ALL over, not just one corner of the cage, in the house ALL over. He doesn't let us pick him up but we can pet him, he won't come to us when we...

    Ok, littertraining.. TELL ME ALL THAT YOU KNOW!! I'm freaking out! My old bunny Thumper never went to the bathroom out of the litterbox. I didn't have to train him. I got pretty lucky =] So now I have Ruby who doesn't use the littlebox, AT ALL. She uses the bathroom (numbers 1 and 2) in her...

    My beloved almost 2yr old rat josie passed away recently. I was so sad. I got my first male rats and I am very happy with them! Their names are Douglas and Seymour. They are much more cuddly than my hyper female. I plan to train them to do tricks! Any tips? I appreciate it!!! :elmo:
