Of course not. Even if the rabbit didn't kill the hamster then the hamster could escape from a rabbit cage, and a rabbit wouldn't fit in a hamster cage.

Rabbits should be kept in same-sex pairs whereas Syrian hamsters must be kept alone.

Rabbits and ferrets cannot share the same cage. The ferrets natural instinct might perceive the rabbit as prey and kill it.

rabbit = cage / hutch fish = aquarium hamster = cage chicken = coop / hutch

Oh God no!! Didn't you know that if they are in the same cage rabbit becomes a savage and kills the hamster in a horrible way. DON'T DO IT!

No. Mixing different species is not recommended and you may well end up with a seriously injured or dead hamster. They don't have the same care requirements, and would gain nothing from the interaction.

It's unlikely that a rabbit and hamster can be good friends. Even if they are good friends, though, they shouldn't be kept in the same cage or left together unsupervised: the rabbit could accidentally trample and injure (even kill!) the hamster.


You just take the hamster out of its cage..

Hamsters aren't supposed to share cages if there syrians(dwarf hamsters can share a cage very happily). Your hamsters could kill eachother; hamster's nature is to roam alone. However, if you have one male hamster, and one female hamster, this may not apply, as the female can, well, you know, with the male and before you know it.... pop goes the BABIES. Be prepared.

get rid of the hamster or buy a cage for it!!
