Hi! New ferret owner here!
My husband has always talked about getting them, he had them when he was growing up.
Long story short, I’m having a really hard time litter training my boys. They sleep in a cage at night with a corner box, and they do OK. They will go to the bathroom in and out of the box at night. During the day they have a playpen with a box, I’ve tried a few different kinds, and they don’t seem to like any. I tried using the one from their cage, but they just make a mess with it because it can’t hook on to anything in the pen. The one we’re currently using and kind of working is a high sided cat litter box, I put a rack at the bottom to help them from sliding around. They also aren’t super thrilled about the “ferret litter”, but it’s kind of working with the rack so far.
I praise them when they go in it, give them treats. But they still go in a corner the next time.
I’m almost to the point of giving up, I have been very close to renominates this. But I have grown to love them now, and even though I get SUPER frustrated it kills me to have to give them up.
ANY ideas, thoughts would be super helpful!
Sorry for the long post! Thanks in advance!
