Default Wet fur help!

Hi this morning I woke up to my hamsters behind fur being wet and under neath to. He wasn't like that yesterday. Also lately its been really hot and I put a ceramic hideout in so he can keep cool and in the hideout today it was all dirty with poop! Is he sick?

He may have just pee'd in his nest, they do do that sometimes keep an eye him though and make sure he is hydrated etc.
He may be using the ceramic hideout as a toilet...

How hot are we talking exactly? Wet fur is a sign of heat stress, but it could also be due to normal grooming, wetness from a bottle, or urine as rads mentioned. Feces in the nest area is normal, as is the toilet areas. Are his stools solid or do they appear abnormal? Pictures may also help us
