How many times a day do you guys answer litter box questions? Sorry to add to it
I cannot get Finn to use the litter box outside of his cage. At all. Seriously. He will go around it, go under it, move it out of the way to go behind it, but god forbid he actually uses the darn thing.
In his cage his habits are decent. Always pees in the box, still working on getting poop in the box, but I pick them up every morning and drop them in the box and every time I walk by his cage during the day.
When he's out I found the spot where he likes to go. So I put the litter box there. And then he started to pee next to it. so I moved it. Then he started to pee where it used to be. So I moved it. This went on for a couple of days. Then I set down a towel (AH HA! I'll out smart the little bugger) and that worked for a day. He peed in his box. I watched him. it was miraculous!!! Then I cleaned it, and left a little bit of soiled litter in there so he would use it. Ha, I got this in the bag right? Wrong. He started peeing on the towel. So that back fired.
Now I've been sitting in his pen watching him and moving him to the box when he tries to pee. Today he outsmarted me and I missed him. He hasn't been using the box so I can't praise him.
I've tried hay in the box, I've tried care fresh, paper towels, news paper, nothing. I don't know what else to do to get him to pee where he is supposed to. Help?
And I clean up the messes as soon as I see them happen with natures miracle.
