It's not the hamsters fault, but yours! Every couple of days you should take out whatever you have on the floor of the cage (they will do their business on one part of the cage, but not near their sleeping area.) Buy a bag of wood chips (meant for rodents) at any local pet store or sometimes grocery stores and every two days clean out the woodchips and replace it with new (much like a cat's litter box.) Also be sure there is good food (also from the pet store) and fresh water. You can place cotton baton and pieces of ribbon if you like in one corner of the cage so your hamster can make a warm bed out of it. Hamsters groom themselves so no need to bath that hamster! LOL
