I have two boars that I rescued. One is turning 5 and the other, 6. They seemed to have been litter trained but they don't fully use their litter.(I have 2 litter trays) They urinate a lot on their fleece and I don't know how to fix this. I have tried putting their hay in there litter trays but since they have corner trays it's not as comfy. I use care fresh bedding as the source of litter. And I'm pretty sure that they don't have any urinary or internal problems. I even tried an experiment by, putting down pee pads over top their fleece. They seemed to have peed mostly on the fleece even when their litter trays where clean. Any tips at all, on how I can fix this problem. :ple:

Guinea pigs are notoriously hard to litter train! They just seem to wee and poop where they are. Have you tried putting pee pads under the hay in the hay trays? or where they eat and drink? that should catch a lot of it.
