Using food bowl as a toilet
Posted 23 September 2017 - 09:17 PM
I have found that they are using their food bowl as their toilet instead of the lovely toilet I have for them.
Any suggestions on how to correct this?
The person I got them from used and ice cream container with a rock in the middle which they apparently climbed on to do their business. I tried putting a rock on the toilet but they are avoiding it altogether.
Appreciate your help, please.

Bubs that age can be full of nonsense Using a "pee rock" does usually help. Maybe try that again? Otherwise, the only other thing would be to scoop up all the droppings and keep putting them in the correct litter area. Sometimes this does help redirect them and teach them that that's a toilet area.

I know it's tough to get them litter trained in the beginning but if it's any consolation once they are then you'll never have to do it again. If you get new bubs later on they will learn from the older girls and then they'll teach any newbies after that and so on. They also pick up other little habits too from their elders. It's very sweet to see it happen as they settle in
