I just got a 10 week old (supposingly) short hair hamster, the first day he was very active like he was in the pet shop, he played on his wheel for hours, ate and ran around. Then the next day and to the present (1 week now) he never seems to stay up for more than 15 minutes and thats just to go get water and food. The cage has a house that's attached to the side of the cage and he never seems to want to leave it. He goes to the bathroom in there too so I clean it everyday and when I do, he gets freaked out sometimes and hides in the cages tubes (habitrail cage) and I try to be very gentle and quiet when I do it, waking him up slowly. I hope he's not sick, has anyone ever heard of this? I can't tell if he is though because he is eating, cleaning himself, drinking water, and can run fast and climb up these 1 and 1/2 ft tubes, I'm very worried.

Hi, my name is naomi and I just got a pet dwarf hamster named little lad. He never comes on to my hand, I've tried putting food on my hand and rubbing my hand in his bedding, he just won't come on my hand.

Also my cousin liked the my hamster named little lad and she got her own off this woman. The woman didn't tell her what breed the hamster is so we looked up everywhere and can't find them. We think the hamsters she owns, named snowy and hami, were half rat because they were bigger than dwarf hamsters, pure white, no short tail, pink eyes and made a hissing noise and they spat and bite a lot. What on earth will we do! please help naomi

A month ago I bought 2 teddy bear hamsters. My family and I thought they were both girls, but a week ago we found out they are not. Now we have the hamsters in separate cages because the father will eat them, and warning, don't bother the mother or babies or the mother will bite them to death. The babies are soon coming out, in maybe 3 or 4 days.

Her name is Lily. We bought her a month ago. Se always gets lost and we never find her. She likes to play a lot. She's long and is white, beige, and black. Steven borrowed her and now he can't find her. She has been like one week lost. Lily bit all of her sisters close and then ran away. I hope we find her cause damile, my partner, misses her. One day she escaped and her mom started screaming jajajaja, jijijiji. My mom was scare of her, and me too. I want to give a shout out to my friends um damile, syndey, karen, elijah, and tamy.

Me and my brother got our hamster about a month ago. We liked them at first sight. However, a few weeks later our hamsters gave birth. We were astounded to see a little red critter lying there under it's mom. Another week after our hamsters gave birth, they grew more and more courageous. Snowflake (female) was so cute to look at. Whenever we went to look at her, she'd look at us and seem to plead: "can't I have some better food?" We, of course gave her some food. But some how, she lost all confidence. Now Hermes (male) is more confident. Booey (female) was always confident.

We purchased our first dwarf hamster about a month ago. We walked into the pet store and she had her little front paws on the front of the cage, her ears all perky as if to say "Look at me - I will make a great pet!".
Well, we couldn't resist. We named her Despereaux. It took her a little time to become acclimated to us, but now she is so funny! Every morning when she hears us enter the kitchen she climbs to the top of her cage (we have the Critter Trail X, which has a viewing station for her - great cage!), and starts poking her nose out to say good morning and to get her Cheerios! YES - CHEERIOS! She loves them. We feed one at a time, she usually eats 3 - 4 pretty quickly, then will take a few and hide them for later. We crack up laughing at how quickly she hides them and then comes back for another. We let her hide maybe 3 - 4 for later. We don't want her to eat only Cheerios. In the afternoon after she eats her pellet food she will again go to the viewing station looking for us - this time for popcorn! We just use popcorn that we pop at home with a little oil, no salt or butter. One piece of popcorn takes her 5 minutes to eat - it is hilarious to see how big the one piece is in her hands - and the cutest part is that she sits and holds it with her front paws.
Don't waste money buying the expensive treats in the store!
Needless to say we are very pleased with her.
We look forward to many more fun times with her.
