Idk how he does it but some how TempleTon manages to poop outside his cage.. my closet doesnt have a door so i had his cage in there for a while and when i was rearanging my room and took his cage out of the closet there was a big pile of poop on the floor outside his cage.
And then today i noticed some poop behind his cage on the floor...
Any ideas on how he manages to do this???

He probably just backs up to the wire and poops. I have yet to meet a rat that purposefully flings poop (that's more of a monkey thing anyways). I've had girls that peed out of the cage too. If you have removable shelves you could always remove them for a few days to encourage proper litter box habits (if you use a litter box, that is). Now if he doesn't have shelves and he's still pooping out of the cage I'd go with the poop flinging theory.
