Default Possibly not wheeling?

Sweet Pea's wheel has always been dirty in the morning, but for the past two mornings there has been plenty of poop and urine under her wheel, but not on the wheel at all. Do they sometimes run without making a mess or do they just not run some nights?

She has been eating and drinking well, so I don't think anything is really wrong with her, just wondering what others have experienced.

Thanks in advance.

I've had a few that quit pottying on their wheel. That could be it. Check the wheel to make sure it rotates easily and that it is at a comfortable tilt. Perhaps it is a wheel issue.

She's wheeling again, but she is just not going to the bathroom very often on the wheel. It's been a much easier clean up in the mornings.

Thanks for your input.
