Bathroom manners

Published January 15, 2013 by Kokomo

YES! It has taken 5 weeks in the new cage, and apparently a new and bigger toilet, but my ladies have refound their bathroom manners. Peeing is still an issue, but not nearly as big as in their old cage, where they peed on the barred floors and made it drip through they entire cage, but once again they poop in  a corner toilet. I am such a proud rat mommy!

No more clearing poopies from everywhere in the cage, no more changing the toilet for no apparent reason and no more corbo spread through the cage and on the floor 🙂

My new toilet is from the same producer as the cage, savic. For rodent-owners this is quite a common brand and a very common toilet (apparently).

Poop-house :)

I got them the green one, since that is still the color I have (very) few items in throughout my apt. I could have gone for fuchsia-pink, since their running  sleeping ball is also in that color, but I am not one of those nuts who has to have the entire cage in one color theme. That would kill my OCD for sure 😉

Here they are sleeping in the ball. Still their favorite place ;)

I’m thinking their recently refound manners may have something to do with the size of this toilet being at east 2,5 times the size of the old one. Either way, they haven’t tipped it over in 2 days and they haven’t pooped outside it (aside from one or two stray poops).

So here’s to a proud and happy rat-mommy, hoping they will keep up this wonderful behavior 🙂
