New ferret owner with a question??? - Wednesday, June 13, 2018 1:41 PM
Hello everyone,

I have two ferrets Lily and Rocky.  I am new to owning ferrets and I am in need of help.  My one male ferret Rocky will not use the out of cage litter box.  He uses his one in the cage but poops and pees right next to the one outside of his cage.   The  boxes are the same kind, shape, color and has the same litter.  I have tried everything I have read to get him to go in the one outside of the cage.  I even used vanilla extract on the inside of the litter box.   They have a good sized area to roam in outside of the cage.  Not too big to have two litter boxes.  We only  let them roam around the house when we can watch them.  What can I do?  We didn't buy these ferrets from a pet store but from a lady who didn't have enough time to spend with them.  They are not even a year old yet.  I think they are around 8 months old.  We have owned them for just over two months now.  They are wonderful pets!!!  I always tell Rocky he is lucky he is so darn cute

Thanks in advance,

Try to catch them right before they do the deed and place them in the litter box. I find that they can be 90-100% while in the cage and for some reason that percentage drops while they are out of the cage.
