Litterbox Training a Pocket Pet
Litterbox training a hedgehog, rabbit, ferret, or any pocket pet is easy. For most of these pocket pets, simply placing an appropriate container with one to three inches of nonclumping litter in the cage is enough. Their natural instincts take over and suddenly the litterbox is the only place they are eliminating. It can make cleaning the cage and controlling odor much easier.
If your pocket pet doesn’t seem interested at first, you can put just a couple small drops of ammonia in the litter. The smell attracts them and triggers the appropriate response.
An appropriate container is indestructible, water resistant, and won’t break, tear, splinter if chewed. Sturdy plastic storage containers work well and are easily cleaned. Be sure the container is large enough for your pet to move around in and is cleaned at least every other day.
