Default Change in behavior

Sargent Pepper our 3YO hedgie has recently started changing where he goes potty. He lives in a C&C with flece and runs on a Carolina storm wheal since we got him he has alwayse done majority of his buisness on his wheal and on the tray below with paper towel in it. He has started using another corner of his cage and also we have found a few poops on his iglue. I'm not sure if he is getting older and just not making it out of his house to go as often or what is going on.we clipped his nails to make sure he was comfy running and cleaned his whole house to try to stop the behavior any other suggestions? do you think he's ok? He's just not one to go potty just anywhere but it's in his iglue that worries me more ten anything. Thank you!

Any other behavior changes? How long has this new behavior been going on? Eating, drinking and activity levels the same? What temperature is his cage at? Honestly, if it's been a while since you last had him at the vet for a check up now may be the time. Even if you were there recently, it may be time to go back anyway. It could be that he's not wanting to leave his house to potty because he doesn't feel good.
