Default Tasty yellow drink...

Every night after my baby girl finishes eating, she goes on her wheel for a quick jog and does her pee and poo but then she DRINKS HER PEE! Why and how can I get her to stop? I always wipe it up as soon as I see it. I pick up the poop and I soak up the pee right after she does this but I'm just so confused as to why she would drink her pee. I spoon feed her water right after she eats too.

...I have no idea.

Add a water bowl right near her wheel, so she has it readily accessible for post-run thirst?

Aside from spoon-feeding water, do you have a regular water source in her home? I'm in favour of bowls since that way she can gulp freely, but a water bottle can also be an option.

I have to second that... start by making sure she always has fresh clean water available at all times, probably next to the wheel. These little ones can do the weirdest things sometimes.

Yeah she has a bottle in her cage but I spoon feed her water because I thought she might be dehydrated that's why she drinks her pee. I'll give the water bowl a try!
