The most important thing is the hand to hand running through the fingers so he feels your hands round him. Have him in the ball or tub then let him walk out and crawl over you while you stroke and hold him. Hamster is from the german word hamstern meaning to hoard or store!
We have a hamster, we didn't ask for it, we took it on because my niece was not able to look after it any longer due to health problems. My boy loves animals and even he is getting bored of him i think and hardly asks to see hamster Are all hamsters this boring or did we just strike it unlucky with this one? I wake them up in the day for a cuddle then in the evening for a run in the ball! They might be sleeping a bit more as it's colder aswell. Yep, they do make rather dull pets due to their nocturnal nature.
Honesetly, this hamster is so boring, I know they nocturnal but seriously we hardly ever see this thing and when it does make an appearance it goes straight to its food bowl and takes it back to his little house and we never see it again for the day.
He will be frightened just now as everything is very new and he has never been handled before. If he is really not coming out at night you do need to check he is not unwell. Gently take off his house lid and herd him into a box so you can look at him and see he does not have a wet bottom or anything.
Don't worry though as he will settle with gentleness and consistent taming. You can also take him out in the bath (dry) so if he jumps he cannot run away. If he seems ill you need to see a vet but I suspect he is still just scared and untame.
She had him log into the same chat room with a male profile and a female profile – and the difference was startling.
