So I've only had Egon Goob since sunday, but he's got some poop on his quills...

Should I give him a bath? I've tried wetting a Q-tip and trying to wipe it off, but its really dried on there :/ I thought if I gave him a bath, I could try to trim his nails afterwards because they're getting kinda long :/ and sharp :/ plus the cuddling afterwards would help us to bond more :)

What do you guys suggest I do?

Oh, and I would just be using oatmeal water because I have not yet obtained any aveeno body wash for him. I do have baby shampoo, but am not going to risk it. His skin is a little dry already. Not going to add to it :p

Other than him having poopy quills, he's an active little guy :) loves his wheel and burrowing, lol, tried burrying in my sleeve this morning :3

If you can't get it off, then I'd go ahead and give him a bath. I wouldn't do the nails yet, though. That can be an adventure in itself! A bath will give him some fun snuggle time afterward while you wait for him to get completely dry before putting him back in his cage.
