Hi All,
I hope you are well.
I have notice that my male chin is very convenient in terms of defecating.
He does not bother going downstairs to pee but instead once he leaves the hammock he's peeing from height all over the place sometimes not missing the food bowl.
He's over 1 year old and I have not seen females doing that.
Can this be corrected in any way? Should I put him in a low cage to acknowledge the litter box?
Best regards

Some chins are just lazy like that. Most chins seem to pick a spot to pee, but not all do, so trying to get them to use a litter box isn't always possible. If they don't wont to they just wont. My boy often likes to pee from the shelf his house is on when he wakes up, so I just put the litter box under the shelf, so it mostly ends up in the pan.
