Hank hasn't had a poo in a week! Well I haven't seen one anyway. Should I be worried? He is pottering about and still eating. I've seen him have a drink too and he has had a few baths but still no poo!

What are you feeding him? He might be eating it.

In the last week he has had Curly kale, cucumber, pansies, rocket. I've seen him eating his food.

He's probably recycling then lol. If he was fed poorly before you got him, it can take a few weeks for them to fill up anyway, as their digestive systems are not like ours. It's like when hibernating, it can take up to a month for them to empty.

For what it's worth molly was only pooing once a week,then started going a bit more, now she's holding on to it again. More likely to go in the bath, but not always.

Ooh! Ok, lol
Thanks everyone. He is definitely still eating and happy. He is just having some dandelion flowers and pansies for his tea.
