        When you have multiple buns living together, how do you go about collecting poop samples? Do you separate them until they drop some precious gold? I can guesstimate based on size but since this is really important testing, I’d rather not guesstimate. Also, how much does one usually collect?

          In the past I would keep the litter box very clean, and then stalk them and wait till they are in the litter box eating. Usually a bun will make a little pile of poops and you can grab some right when they move away so you know which bun they came from. Temporarily separating them with a barrier would also work!

            Ha, one refused to give me a sample all day. I separated her during the day and she was furious. I let them be together in the evening and then separated again overnight. She had the worst litter habits ever (compared to herself), showing me she knows how to go, just not on my time table.

            The other one gave me exactly what I needed immediately. I asked and he popped out a few, no more, no less.

                hahah! You can try giving her a tummy rub. Massaging along the spine (gently!) can also trigger them to poop!
