My girl has started to pee outside the litterbox! She still poops where she's supposed to (except for the ocasional poop in the hammock), but I can't think of a way to encourage her to pee in the litterbox. Any help is greatly appreciated!

BTW, are rats in any way like cats in that if they stop using the litterbox there's some medical problem?

My boys sometimes pee outside of the litterbox. I think it is normal once in a while (correct me if im wrong, still learning lol)

Is there another spot that she pees in more often than others, if so you could try putting a box in that section too.

Somtimes it is just that they are too lazy to run to the box....

To the best of my knowledge you can't really train a rat to pee anywhere specifically. They'll pretty much go wherever they want. You can only train them to poop.

Darn. lol. Yeah, I'll try putting a box there. I'm happy that it is at least on the bottom level and not out the sides like previous rats I've had.
