Litter train your little critter and you'll cut down on the number of cage cleanings required.
To get the little fella trained, just put a little clumping scent-free kittty litter into each corner. When your little friend had decided which corner will be the "outhouse", you can use a closed in or open accessory specifically designed for such use. Just put a little of the soiled kitty litter in with the fresh stuff (until he gets the idea, then just use clean) and your critter will use the "toilet" every time. It really cuts down on the odor that small animals can cause and you won't need to change the shavings as frequently.
