I am not 100% (I am sure someone else will jump in) but I didn't think you could use yesterday's news as their actual bedding...just as litter. I could be wrong though....

As for cleaning Niblet's cage. He is in a ferret nation with fleece liners. I spot clean his cage everyday. I pick up all the poop and wash his wheel down. Every other day, I take off the top layer of fleece. Once a week, he gets a complete cage cleaning and a foot bath. We also have a small air purifier by his cage. We have never had any issues with smell.
