Default Poo everywhere!

So we bought home Cheese yesterday (random name I know, but that is a 4 yr old for you!) Anyway, he is pooing everywhere, I know he is settling in and am reluctant to pick it all up at the mo but should I be cleaning it up or should I wait another day?

Just leave it, you don't have to worry about poo in the same way as pee as it will dry out & they need to eat some of it anyway so unless it's an abnormal amount or wet indicating that he might be unwell just leave it be, they do generally tend to leave most of it in one spot after they've settled.

Cypher is correct, there isn't a way to stop hamsters from pooing all over, it's just their thing! Hamster feces do not contain high levels of bacteria/infectious diseases like they do in other animals and thus it's not a concern of whether or not it's sanitary. Have fun with little cheese

Thanks Cypher and Drago. We had a dog up until a year ago so seeing poo around the place was a little worrying lol
