My name's Maranda and I aim to spread the word about good ferret care. I volunteer at a ferret shelter, work at a pet store, and am owned by many ferrets. I'm a huge advocate for raw feeding, private breeders, and choosing adoption first. I do my best to answer any ferret-related questions!
Does he have other places to sleep? Some ferrets prefer other sleeping places… some like hammocks, some prefer sleepy sacs, some like little donut beds… some just like to bury themselves in blankets. Try offering everything! And every time you see him sleeping in the litter box, move him somewhere else. And try to pay attention when he falls asleep— learn the pattern of play, sleep, play, sleep, and what times they do it. If you can anticipate when they’re about to fall asleep, you can herd them into the proper sleeping area.
ferretorium: Put litter boxes in the corners, then! I cut the edges on a normal, square, Petco kitten litter box. Cut it so that the entrance is low enough and they just walk in. That works for mine.
The litter boxes are in the corners. They keep going next to the litter box. The kitty litter box seems like a good idea.
Yeah. I used a pair of shears (like for pruning bushes, lol) and just chopped the edges off. I’ll take a photo for you. It really works!
