Unhappy what do you use in the litter box?

If you are using a fleece liner in the bottom of the cage, what do you put in the litter box?

I recommend using a sheet of paper towel in a litter box/under the wheel, unless your hedgie has a tendancy to shred/chew on it.

I was using corn cob, but I read that it wasnt good for them, and also my hedgie tends to turn her litter box upside down and that can be VERY messy with corn cob! Haha, so I just use papertowel for now. I'd like to use Yesterdays News.

Exclamation Re: what do you use in the litter box?

I use Soft-Sorbent lavender for both hedgehog litter-boxes and the rat. I pick out the dried flower petals. They all love it.

Ok I wanted to add a question into this. I feel stupid for asking, but do you scoop it like a regular cat box? I'm going to be using Yesterday's News for potty training my baby boy, and couldnt' really decide if that was the best way to scoop.

Yes poop and pee can be scooped out daily with a regular cat litter scoop. You will find that because yesterday's new is pelleted you will need to completely change the litter out every 3-4 days, possibly more depending on how much your hedgehog pees in it. The pellets go really soggy when wet, which is why it's hard to scoop all the pee out, and why changing the litter completely will be neccessary every few days.
