How messy is your hamster?

May 15, 2008 1:46pm CST
I recently moved house and the hamster cage had previously been on top of a bookcase. When i moved the bookcase, there was so much sawdust behind it. Anyone know how to keep this creature under control...?

Under control - That's too funny. I always had the plastic cages back when I had hamsters. But I do remember having to clean the cages about twice a week. Hamsters are great though! Well worth the trouble! Have a great day!

I don't think there's an answer to this one I'm afriad. Imagine if you were a little hamster in a little cage ... now wouldn't chucking all your sawdust out seem like fun? :-) How about putting the cage inside a larger tray? Then the sawdust would remain stuck inside something and you could recycle it back into the cage.
