Slight variations in poop colour and softness can be diet related eg extra veg eaten, new food given etc.

Keep an eye on it though. As it could be a sign of illness.

If she is still active and behaving her normal self. Then she is likely ok. If she changes her behaviour then a vet visit may be needed.

Thank you for your reply!
I changed her food a couple days ago by recommendation as I had Wagg before and heard it wasn’t too good so I changed her on to Harry hamster, she is perfectly fine in herself, she doesn’t seem weak or anything, she’s still running around her cage and running in and out of her tubes.
I have done her a quick check, her nose is fine, her eyes are nice and bright and her bum isn’t wet. I’m just monitoring her and she’s pooped some more and it’s darker and abit harder now, the light brown soft one was her first one of waking up I don’t know if this has anything to do with it?
I hope my little mimi is okay! X

Your robo May prefer a dwarf specific hamster food. Like Burgess dwarf hamster food as the pieces are smaller.

When changing food over to a new one. It is best to do it gradually. You give mostly the old food and a little of the new food. Then gradually give less of the old food and more of the new food.
