I have just bought two russian dwarf hamsters. One is adorable and soft it lets me hold her, but the other is very scared. When i put them in together, mr. fiesty had to go and bite the others ear, so now he wont let me hold him.

hi,
i used to have a teddy bear hamster who bit me ALOT! He was very mean. I got him at petco, but then 2 days ago I exchanged my old teddy bear hamster for a dwarf hamster. Her name is eskimo because she is gray and white and has never biten me. I recommend if you have just gotten a new hamster that you wear gloves first and pick it up to see if it bites. (I wouldnt recommend bathing your hamster because they dont like water, trust me i have learned the hard way). So get a hamster and hold it at the store before yout take it home. i recommend getting a baby so it thinks you are his or her parent and it is nicer, but it just depends on the hamster.
bye

I bought a chinese dwarf hamster called Nick. He's lovely but very small. Nick is very jumpy and active at the moment, but he loves a good cuddle/stroke. He is my first hamster. For the last 3 years i've only had mice, but i wanted a change this year. I'm only 12 and only held a hamster at my friends. Thanks for reading, chloe sanderson

Hi, today i bought a pair of roborovski hamsters. They are so adorable and they sleep squashed up together. They certainly like to run. I had 2 ideas on what to call them, comet & sparky or Jam & marmalade. In the end i ended up calling them jam & marmalade. They are so cute and never bite, although they are fairly quick moving. I highly recommend them as an older childs pet.

I have 3 hammsters. I got Minime first and shes older than the other 2. Midget and Dodget are the other 2. They are in one cage. They are so cute and adorable, i love snuggle with them. I didn't really want them but i wanted my parents to trust me with animals. Moms and dads... it's the best way to get your 13 year old responsible :-)

My hamster has a cyst that keeps opening and blood and this white gunk comes out. He is in lots of pain and if your hamster has this type of thing. Either go to a vet or just keep cleaning it everyday.

My hamster's name is Hammie...His orginal name was Polo but i changed it. He likes to chew on the cage and its very annoying. When the cage gets left open, he's quick to run out. He doesn't use the wheel anymore
but i love him anyway... That crazy Hammie

Hi! I have a teddy bear hamster and her name is PohBear. When she was a baby she looked exactly like Winnie the Pooh. She is almost 2 and I have been noticing she is loosing her hair. She is my baby and I just can't imagine that she is getting older so quick. She and my cat get along so well, I know it's crazy but she was bought originally as a pet for the cat.

Hey.
I just bought my daughter, who is now six, two long hair teddy bear hamsters. At first when I heard that they have a tendency to bite I was kind of worried about how they'd be with my daughter. But both of them are sweet as can be and they are both females, named Lilly and Lola. They get along great with each other and they love to be held and petted. If you know anybody or if you are thinking about getting one, I would highly recommend it. They are not hard to take care of, they are so sweet, and they are fun animals to have around the house!

I have four very fat and spoiled hamsters. Sometimes when i get off of work i wake them up and snuggle with them. My hamsters are part of our family, they even have there own playdates. Now if thats not funny i don't know what is.
