I have owned three hamsters. Each time I adopted one, the person said to leave it in the cage for two days without disturbances. It needed to adjust to its new home. It feels like forever, but if you wait two days before holding your new hamster, it will be happier and it might even live longer.

Well first how long do you have your hamster because if you have it only a couple of days it doesen't know you and don't want's to be holded.Or maybe you didn't treated your hamster very well.Think about that.

When I first got my Roborovski hamster, I held it as soon as I could. It was 6 weeks old and very friendly to me. Always hold it when sitting down, otherwise you will scare it.

User Avatar

well i would say as much as you can the more you play with them and hold them the more loving they will be.

It all depends on the type but usually they hold it for awhile until they eat it no more than a day is normal.

Well, when you get a new hamster. You know you need all of the food and the cage. And stuffing. Leave the hamster alone for atleast 2 days. It needs to get use to its new home. If you touch the hamster before 2 days nothing will happen. It might just be a little skiddish. Scared of you. But you should hold your hamster(s) everyday for atleast 10-20 minutes. It doesn't matter how long you play with it. They are fragile so be gental.

It depends how often you hold him/her, and for how long. The more you handle a hamster, the quicker it will become less shy. Male hamsters tend to be more shy, and female hamsters tend to be more vicious. It also depends how much the hamster has been held in the pet shop it came from.

Try to hold her as much as you can and just keep loving her and she won`t be aggressive long.

Well, for starters why are you spraying him in the first place?! And second of all, what do you mean by "How long will a hamster DIE?" Do you mean "How long will a hamster LIVE?"

Greater Long-tailed Hamster was created in 1899.

Get a majorly long string of yarn and tie some with their shells peanuts to it then leave it there when the hamster comes out at night it will try to gather the peanuts then leaving a trail of yarn to its hiding place set up several of these in different rooms

if the hamster has long har all over the body quite (scruffy looking) then its proberly a russan hamster or if its a small long haired its a russan dwaf if it has short har quite normal sized then its a syririan hamster if its got shortish har (not very long) then its a average chinesse dwaf hamster if its not any of these then i could be a roboroviski dwaf hamster these are quite speedy hard to handle then its one of them hamsters come in differant sizes breed and color my guess if its a syrian hamster if you are not satisfied with this awnser then check the web site at pets at home look at the small pets part and at the left hand side and click pets at store i hope this has gave you the awnser from annomous hamster owner Excuse me for writing this on this. You do have an awesome point(whoever wrote this) but I am guessing the hamster is a Teddy Bear Hamster. This is just a guess but I think it is correct!

it has an instinct to run if predetors pick him up. but there might be a spot on him where he will be sort of paralized if you hold that spot for a long time.
