Some do, some don't, some will, some won't......it's the way of the Grey.  I haven't bothered with Charlie because I know where he is going to go and get ready with paper etc. lol.

I havent bothered with toilet training either. Bailey wont come to me anyway when she's out of her cage, so I'd be waisting my time right now. :rofl: :rofl:

Bailey loves to perch on top of one particular kitchen cupboard so I just cover the surface with paper and catch any 'falling parcels'. I also lay some under the door of her cage as that's the other place where she likes to sit and poop!!  :loo


Do you recognise when she's going to poop? I always (well usually!! ) know when she's going to poop so I do a countdown and when she does it, I say 'blast off'. However, sometimes Bailey likes to trick me and wiggles and gets ready to poop, but laughs when I start the countdown!!

Sid doesn't poop in his cage, he seems to save it all up and does a massive one when I let him out. You could say he has trained himself  :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

We recognise the signs for Thabo with his little squat, if we are watching tv and he sits with us he steps up, we take him to his toy box which has paper around it and he does it but then looks up for praise

Alfie likes to sit on his door and poo so i usually just put paper under there.
I also know when hes going to poo, he does a little bum wriggle and crouches down  :rofl:
When hes sat with me on the sofa, every 15-20 minutes i take him back to the play stand and he will poop and then i tell him good bye and pick him back up and funnily enough i do think he kind of knows what to do because when i take him back he always poops and then looks to come back to me

i know when Charlie wants a poo he gets restless so i just put him on the floor for him to do it, we have laminate flooring so just clean it up with baby wipes.
He looks so funny when hes looking for a spot to do it he waggles his bum like a duck and walks backwards in circles.
In his cage he got 3 poo spots where he always does it in the same places
