It is possible that the hamster feels safer in a cage. Open spaces scare him if he has only been exposed to a small space since birth. It is called "institutionalized" and sometimes people get that way too.

You should take the hamster to the veterinarian immediately if you haven't done so already. This could be permanent. You are not supposed to hold a hamster high above the floor. It's extremely dangerous and can be fatal to the hamster if he jumps off your hand.

Would your hamster hide in the air vents in your house?

my hamster is hiding in our air vents. I know because it smells like an old hamster cage. My question is how do I get it out?? Our last hamster died in there and it smelled almost as bad. (ps: if you have a 3 year old, don't get a hamster!) One way to get a hamster out is to look for a ceiling vent in your basement. If you have floor vents in your first floor, then the ceiling vent will be on the same level. Once you find a ceiling vent, find where hammy is hiding. Listen for little footsteps in the air vents. When you think he's near the ceiling vent, stuck hamster tubes up inside of it. Hammy won't be able to resist crawling in his hamster tubes! That's how i got my hamster out of the air vents. - ya u totally copied that from the hamster hideout forum...
