5 Best Ferret Litter Boxes – Review Guide

1. Marshall High Back Ferret Litter Pan (Single Pan. Colors May Vary.)

You can get the Marshall Ferret Litter Pan in high back and lock it on.

Both offer a good amount of space for your pet to defecate and pee and a high back wall to make sure that the mess will be contained inside the litter pan. You can place this inside or outside your ferret’s cage.

However, make sure that you have a big cage because the size and shape of this litter pan might take a lot of space.

The lower lip front offers easy access and is helpful to old ferrets. In addition, the pan is deep and wide enough for you to put the ample amount of ferret litter necessary to absorb your pet’s mess.

This is best for those with more than one ferret because you will have enough space to put in as much litter as needed.

Key Features

Highback – 14 x 12 x 7 inches Lock-on – 14 x 14 x 9 Inches

Highback and Lock-on both offer a huge amount of space for your pet to move comfortably and for you to put as much litter as needed
The lock-on has a lock mechanism to secure the litter pan
Both high back and lock-on offer high corners to avoid spill

2. Nature’s Miracle Disposable Litter Box, Small Animal, 1-Pack

This is the perfect litter box for those ferret owners who don’t have a lot of time to clean their pet’s mess. You can just dispose of this litter box after a while and replace it with a fresh one.

Just make sure that you will replace it as often as needed because bacteria may breed and grow in the pores of the paper/litter box which can be harmful to your pets and to the whole family as well.

Although made from recycled paper, this litter box can be used as a stand-alone and it won’t break apart.

Of course, the number of pets that use it shall also be considered. If you’re not comfortable in using it a stand-alone, you can put it inside a plastic litter box too.

The walls of this litter box may be too high especially for older ferrets, but too low for pets who are diggers. To help your aging ferrets access this, you can cut the side or front to make a low front lip.

Put pet litters with baking soda to add to the built-in baking soda in this litter box. That way, odour can be controlled for a longer period.

Key Features
Made from recycled paper but does not leak or shred
Disposable so it can save you time from cleaning
Can be used as liners for your litter boxes or a stand-alone litter box
Has built-in baking soda to help your litter to manage odor

It is also shaped strategically so it will fit any corner that your ferret chooses to use as their toilet, making it easier to potty-train your pet.
