Basically what the title says. Our new hamster has started doing all his wees in the play tubing in his cage. This means I have to dismantle the whole thing to clean it, and he is running through it all the time until I notice/and able to get him out of the cage.
Any bright ideas on how we could train him of this? Thanks.
we have a little litter tray for ours but we were lucky that he tended to use one area and so we put some of the soiled bedding in the tray and he never looked back. I don't know whether yours would do that.
Is he a syrian (your basic normal petshop hamster) or a dwarf? Never had too much trouble with my syrian hamsters but my roborovski dwarves absolutely love peeing on their wheels and nothing will stop them!
I was going to suggest the same as Happydays. Our Syrian uses the little plastic house that came with the cage as his toilet. So I'd take the tubes out for a while and see if he'll use something else as the place to go.
