How often should you clean a hamster cage?

when i first got him back in june, we were cleaning his cage twice a week. then we got one that's a little bigger and started cleaning it once a week. i think it might be too soon. his food bowl is still almost completely full a week later and since it's bigger there's more bedding in there. his water level is good too. maybe every other week?

  • I do mine once a week but he tends to be a little more stinky than other hamsters. Or maybe I just notice it more, I don't know.

  • I used to do mine once a week or sooner if it really stank!

  • lol- mine is pretty messy too. you cant notice the stench though unless you get up close. maybe i should just stop being lazy and do it every week haha
