Smile I need cage help!!!!

Hello! My hamster Coconut loves being on the top area of the cage with the wire and poops and flicks it out of the cage, leaving it on the ground. It is annoying to wake up and see around 10 pieces on the ground!!! Is there something created out there that can like wrap around the cage to not let the poop fly out? I know there are potty stations but I donít know how I can teach him to go in there .

(I need help with attaching a photo)

I upload photos to imgur and use the BB code [img] to insert them here.

Potty stations usually work just because there's sand in there and they tend to like doing their business there. Not all of them take to it, you can take poops or wet bedding and put them in there to give them the idea but you can't really train them.

Hamster poops are dry and easily removed with a dustpan and brush so can't really see the problem here. I have to brush my floor daily because my hamster chucks things about but that's all part of keeping a hamster as a pet.

Hi - what cage is it with the wire part at the top? Sounds like he is trying to get your attention!

You could try a 'toilet', my hamster uses a sand bath as her toilet (although just for urinating), or you could use cardboard on the inside of the cage around where the hamster poops keep falling out. Otherwise a more permanent option could be a strong piece of plastic zip tied onto the outside to create a higher edge? Although before you do this I would suggest ensuring your cage is the correct size and depth as this may be the reason that the hamster is making a mess as they love to dig, which without a deep tray this can be the cause of a big mess. Hope this helps
