Hello all! I am looking for recommendations of a plastic tote/litter box that will fit and cover the entire bottom of the ferret nation cage? I have always had one of these litter boxes but added an older girl to the gang who is having all sorts of issues with it. We've gotten her to the point where she's at least going to the bottom of the cage but the success rate with the litter box itself is pretty low.
Any suggestions would be great! So far the best thing I've found is this container from Home Depot which will just require a little trimming.

Somebody makes guards for the ferret Nation cage that go around the bottom so poop doesn't shoot out. I'm not very hands-free right now so I can't search for you. They're a little expensive but worth it I find.
Mine are free roam but I use containers four litter boxes. They're clear wrapping paper containers (very long and not tall) my boyfriend used small electric cutting tool to cut down one or two sides to be an inch high and then cut the rim off of it all the way around and we screwed it to the wall. if you go to home Depot and find somebody and tell them what you're looking for and what you need to do there pretty good at helping you. one time a guy even gave me his number so I could get something cut at his place because I'm useless with cutting tools.
I originally had that problem with my ferret going beside the litter box and not in it. He would go in one corner, then I'd move the box to that corner and he would go in the other corner! I couldn't find anything big enough to cover that one side of the cage he was in at the time so I made my own litter pan from plexiglass. After that he always used his litter box. Then when we moved into a ferret nation my concern was him again going beside the litter box since the cage was much bigger. I had just got 2 cat litter pans from the dollar store and put them in his new cage (one on each floor) and he has maybe gone beside it about 4 or 5 times.
You could always try putting puppy pads on the bottom of the cage but she may try to carpet shark under it and moving them around. Maybe you could try putting the litter box in the bottom and put puppy pads around it. The litter box could hold some of the puppy pads in place.
