    Default When to stop stimulating

    My baby squirrels are almost 7 weeks old. They opened there eyes two weeks ago. When should I stop stimulating them to go to the bathroom? I donít want to stop too soon. They started peeing on their own like a weeek algo but i havenít seen poop. One of them pooped on me today.

    I stimulate as long as they will allow.
    It really helps the fleece/bedding stay "somewhat"
    cleaner.
