Hi my name is Marissa and I just got a teddy bear hamster about three days ago. Her name is Gracie Delilah. She is so cute, she is only 4 inches! She is suppose to be the runt and is adorable. I'm so glad I got her I'm even thinking about potty training her! LOL
This website is very good. It taught me a lot about my russian dwarf hamster.
Shannon -- the only female hamster I ever had squealed a lot. Squealing is a sign of fear in hamsters. My advice to new hamster owners is not to bother your hamster once you first take it home for a few days and put him or her in the cage. Let them adjust before you start handling them. They have no idea where they are or what that big thing is that keeps coming towards them (your hand)!
Amrit -- It is normal for hamsters to chew on their bars. My first hamster made it into a hobby and nearly chewed all of the paint off the bars of his cage. There are several things you can try, like rubbing pickle juice on the bars (they usually don't like the taste) or finding alternate things for your hamster to chew on. Kukkiii might not like chew sticks, but he/she might like to chew on toilet paper rolls or blocks of wood.
Also, anyone looking to buy a hamster, in my opinion, if you want a more docile pet, try choosing a male.
Be sure to clean your hamster's cage at least once a week!
Never keep any hamsters in a cage together unless they are dwarf hamsters and have been together since birth. Even then, beware of fights.
Hi there- my name is Amrit and I got a dwarf hamster about 1 month ago. It is a greyish white colour and I named it Kukkiii(friend's choice). Anyways I love it and never want to lose it but it does bite ALOT! I have not held it once and even though I give it chew sticks it continues to chew on its cage bars! It is never awake and really feisty when it comes to taking it out of its cage (ziploc inc. tub) to clean it. I would like to know what I should I do if anyone has some information for me.
This web site is very informative. In fact, I did not know about the animal "HAMSTER". Moreover, in our Society we usually keep some common animals as pets such as Cat, Dog, and Goat; and some kinds of birds such as pigeon, sparrows, etc. A couple of days ago I came to know that my nephews, living in Canada, got a pet Hamster. Since I was unaware of this animal, I went through this website and found complete details of this animal. Thank you so much for enhancing the knowledge of people living around the globe about animals.

Hey there! I'm Allie. I really want a hamster, but my family has had a few problems with Hamsters and Guinea pigs. For example, once (Like a year ago.) My brother had a hamster named Oriele, and he kept getting out, so eventually he got away. But I will NOT give up! After I find out what type I want (and convince my parents to let me get one at all!) I will type back.
OMG! I just found out my teddy bear hamster was a boy! I thought it was a girl, so I named her Gaz. Well now his name is gir.... I'm so sorry gir! They mislabled you at petco!

YAY! I'm FINALLY GETTING A HAMSTER! I would prefer a Teddy Bear Hamster, though I would settle for any other kind of Syrian hamster(I will not get a dwarf!). I will get a boy and name him Squiggy. I'll tell you about him once I get him!
Hi! I'm Kelly. I used to have a Teddy Bear hamster, named Stewart. He was so awesome, but he bit a lot. When I was about eight(a pretty long time ago), he got out of his cage and drowned in my Sump Pump. My mother had come home from work, and I forgot to close Stewart's cage. My motto here is to always make sure that your hamster is safe when you leave him/her for the day. If you leave it's cage door(s) open, it will surely get out. It just may end up like Stewart. Well maybe not in the Sump Pump, but probably dead somewhere. Please take this message into consideration! DON'T LEAVE THE CAGE DOORS OPEN!
HI! My name is Rayanna. I have 2 hamsters. One's name is Theodohre who is a syrian hamster (like from Alvin and the Chipmunks - because he's fat!) and the other one is named kitty who is an albino russian dwarf hamster. I have had theodohre for 2 months now and I just got kitty yesterday. They are both so precious. Kitty is a very sweet hamster who lets me pick her up even when I'm not supposed to because she's not used to me yet. I love them already!
