    Yup, they do that. Our hamster cage had a 3 inch plastic barrier around the bottom of the cage and they still managed to have wood shavings and rodent poop all over everywhere. They also loved taking the shavings up into the Habitrail tubes and making their nests in one of the curves, therefore 1. making the tube impassable and 2. making cleanup much harder (have you ever tried to scrape dried hamster pee from the inside of a three inch curved tube?)
    I used to love to watch them stuff things into their cheeks. We used to give them strips of paper towel to use in the sleeping nest, and they would stuff a 1 inch by 1 foot piece of paper all the way into one cheek. One of them got found a way out of the cage once and took the time to fill both cheeks with food before leaving the cage and taking up residence in the 2" space between a cupboard and the wall next to it. Don’t think that wasn’t fun to clean up.

    Ha! Like oiling the wheel ever worked! When I was a small child my older siblings had hamsters, and all the oil in the world didn’t stop that infernal squeaking.

    I can still remember that wonderful aroma of cedar shavings however…

    @A SAINT

    You can buy those cedar blocks for that smell… and you don’t have to buy or care for the hamster!

    Unfortunately my cat does the same thing with the litter in her box.

    There’s a reason cats eat rodents.

    Wait until the hamster figures out how to open his cage. Like my hamsters did.

    Oil doesn’t work for Hamster cages, but wesson takes care of it! Worked for us and my daughter in law. No Hamsters now, the cats like “rodent crunchies” too much.

    Ah, yes…we once had a hamster who we named Houdini for that very reason. Luckily we managed to find a new latch type that hamster cannot open.
