Default Example Litter Pans?

Hey everyone!

I had question about what type of litter pans everyone uses. I'm currently using one of those large rabbit-style litter pans that are in the corner, attached to the cage wall.

Similar to this without all the accessories: http://www.petsmart.com/product/index.j ... Id=2753367. I use the recycled paper-style litter on the bottom and use the shredded-paper style litter on top.

Anyway, I'm finding that this litter pan is taking up way too much space (especially considering he doesn't use it). I really want one of the pans that go under the wheel, as that is predominantly where he uses the bathroom at (on or around the wheel). I know that I've seen this all around the website here, but no one ever says where they get them!

What do you all use with your hedgies?

I use the litter pan that came with our Carolina Storm Wheel. It's one of those Glad plastic containers, but the size is just perfect to fit under the wheel.

Before I got the CSW, I had a plastic container (I think it was a drawer organizer,) maybe 1 inch tall, that I bought at Walmart.

I use a small shallow metal baking tray under the wheel as a litter pan :P lined with paper towel.

It works fine but the hedgie sometimes splats on it when its hot.

Do all of the Carolina Storm Wheels come with a pan still? (I guess that's a question for Larry to answer :P)

Indeed, I'm sure he'll share where his stockpile comes from, I'd guess probably Walmart.

Yes, the Carolina Storm Wheel comes with a litter pan (and it's a very nice wheel!)

Do you all like the Carolina Storm Wheel more than the Sunshine Quills Wheel? I had saw before that the Sunshine Quills wheel was smaller, I think. Once I remove the litter pan, I won't be too concerned about space, but I was wondering what is generally the community's stance.

I'd say to each his own

I don't personally see the need for the high sides of those corner pans (as in my experience, hedgies don't really spray urine or anything like that) So long as the bottom of the pan is solid, It should be safe.

I just went to the thrift store and looked for a plate that wasn't too big and had raised edges. I got a little tray looking thing (maybe 8x4x1/2) that I use. I don't think its necessary to have a lot of litter (depth wise) as I've never had an issue with too much urine, or an odor.

It looks to me like Larry is using clean frozen meal plates

the Carolina Storm Wheel is EXTREMELY quiet. You don't hear a thing except the pitter-patter of your hedgie's feet ^-^

Here's a video I posted a while back to give you an idea
