Hamsters don't like cold weather. In extreme cold weather they sometimes go into hibernation. Often people mistake hamsters for being dead when they are actually hibernating. Hamsters go into hibernation for a few days at a time. It is usually when they feel an extreme drop in temprature. I have had 4 hamsters and out of all of them only one went into hibernation. The only thing you can do is make sure the hamster doesn't feel extreme temprature drops. You should just make sure the temprature in the room the hamster lives in never drops too low and keep an eye on your hamster well during the colder months.
