Default Question on Litter

Hello all!

I am a new hedgie owner and have found this forum so helpful in helping my Millie get used to her new environment. I had a question regarding teaching her to use a litter box (if possible at all really). Generally, I wanted to see if anyone had trained their hedgie or what I could do to help the situation. I had just put a little dish with litter in and she also tried to eat it so I immediately took it out. Any suggestions are appreciated!

What type of litter did you use? I can't imagine it tastes good enough for her to try and eat it more than once. If that's a problem though, plain paper towels work fine (just be prepared to change it out first thing in the morning, since they don't suppress smell at all).

Thanks for the suggestions! She's stopped eating the litter, but will just kick it around the cage. Haha, we'll get there eventually. She also hasn't been running on her wheel much, but will run around in her play pen fine...I guess she's just getting used to me as I'm getting used to her!

Most of the time, if they "drop their business" outside of the litter box, pick it up and put it in the litter box and pretty soon they figure out that that is where it goes.
