This is the Syrian’s ‘toilet’ which was converted from one of the dwarf hamsters’ older small cage. I changed the sand only about 12 hours ago, so the number of turds you see were all produced in one night (awkward topic, I know >.>).
Hamster ‘toilets’ are awesome
For anyone who doesn’t have a bath/toilet for your hamster, you should really consider getting or making one! Most hamsters will do their thing in the sand bath or you can train them to. It makes cleaning up much easier. And you can go longer between bedding changes if you just clean up the toilet area and spot clean the few turds that might be outside of the toilet.
You don’t have to have a huge toilet like the one in the photo. A smaller bath/toilet like this one put in the corner of the cage would work too. Alternatively, you can use Chinchilla sand in a plastic container or ceramic dish, just make sure your container it’s deep enough so the sand doesn’t get kicked out so much.
You can also make a DIY hamster bath house out of old gift boxes and popsicle sticks like the one in photo below:
