Unhappy Playing in his litterbox?

I've had Oliver for about a week now and I trying to litter train him so that it would be easier to clean his cage.
The problem is that he doesnt use his litter pan for going to the potty. He plays in it and goes potty every else. Litterally, EVERYWHERE else.
What is some advice to help me litter train him?
Thank you

Default Re: Playing in his litterbox?

Where is the litter tray located? Under the wheel is the best, because that way most of the poop and pee that happens while he's running will end up on the tray. Even if he doesn't figure out to use the litter tray voluntarily, most of it should be isolated to the wheel and the tray. The rest of it you can pick off the liner and put on the tray to encourage him to go there. It's also helpful to position the wheel, with the tray, at the opposite side of the cage from the bed/igloo, because they have a tendency to avoid doing their business where they sleep.
