When I had rats I’d just throw all the poops in the litter box and eventually she figured out the poops go there.

Nothing is as cuddly as a good pee-rock, I guess?

Oh, what’s a pee-rock? Never heard of it!
Also, your rat is very cute!

I’m pretty sure the pee rock is supposed to be flat and smooth, like a river rock. Cute rat though.

Hahaha, precious and typical rat behavior. 😂

I have had so many rats that had such diverse relationships with the litter box.

My first boys were really good about using the litter box as intended, my second set of babies didn’t use the litter box at all, either to eat, poop, or sleep in, then my third mischief had a bit of everything! Some would poop and pee in the box and eat, others would only eat in it, while others would only poop in it.

I gave up a long time ago and just leave the box in there out if habit, but my current boy is so good and uses the box to potty.

You just never know!

Cute as hell! We got our boys a pee rock too, a nice smooth one but all they do is eat on it

My boys were stinky little muck tubs. They loved nothing more than lying in filth. Despite my attempts, they refused to be toilet trained 😂

He’s lovin his new rock though, so at least your guy is happy

Can I suggest you try a flat slate like rock? We have one of those and my rats exclusively pee on it. They still poo outside their litter box but at least they pee there.

This isn’t even close to the first “rat naps next to turd” pic I’ve seen in this sub and I’m living for it. Honestly love how weird and gross rats are 😂❤️

I’ve used distilled vinegar on their poo and pee rock in my corner litter tray, it leaves a sterile scent that makes them want to mark it, do it enough and it becomes muscle memory…although my 7 m/o boys still tinkle on top of their barn bc they have hammocks above it and…lazy sleepy ratties don’t wanna climb allll the way downstairs lol.
Best bet is to put it in a high traffic area, put all the droppings you can find in the litter box for couple days and cross your [ washed ] fingers 🤣🥴

Our pee rock only collects poop! They still pee everywhere except the litter box. Maybe it’s time for a new rock

I know it sounds gross but try moving their poop from around the cage into their litterbox, they will notice that it’s been moved and it might entice them to start using the box

Yup, that looks about exactly what our boys do with their pee rocks….hang out with them in the litter box. Right after tossing the poops overboard. Sooo comfy cozy!

I don’t know if all of the litter got kicked out, but it looks like there should also be some more in there. It is better if they can stir it up with their feet (and it also won’t work properly unless there is a layer that covers the whole tray.)

My girls kick theirs out sometimes, so I realize that’s a possibility as well.

Also, I might suggest trying a larger/deeper tray if this still isn’t working. It may do a better job of holding the litter and waste, and will let them churn it up more naturally with their feet – which is also supposed to be a good thing/natural behavior too.

Years ago I had a rat and gave him a little litter box with cat litter, deep enough to dig in. He peed and pooped in there no problem.

It looks like there are very few pellets of litter, maybe he needs more?

I have to give my rats baths often because they love to sleep in their gross litter and they smell foul. ):
