There are different types of hamster bedding, but whichever type you choose, it will need to be kept fresh and dry. Hamsters like to nibble their bedding, and if there’s any dirt or mould on it, this could cause digestive problems for your pet.
Storing the pet bedding in a sealed box will prevent dirt or creepy crawlies getting in. Or you could freeze it for 48 hours to kill any parasites or fungi. If you choose this option, defrost the bedding thoroughly before putting it in your hamster’s cage, or they might become too cold.
The Qute with storage
If you have the Qute Hamster Cage that comes with its own storage space, you can keep the hamster bedding dry in the unit's built-in drawer. Otherwise, it’s important to have a clean, dry area of your house for storing the bedding.
