when I had hamsters, mine used to sleep in the food dish all the time. its nothing to worry about, it just means that they don't have a comfortable sleeping area. try using some toilet paper for him/her in a different location so that it will lure them away from the dish. your welcome is this helped :)

Dwarf hamsters are small pets that don't eat very much.Two tablespoons of dry hamster food,bought from a pet shop(I get mine at Pets Mart.) Dwarf hamsters only eat one forth of there food which is not very much,although your hamster is not very big at all.Always give your hamster that amount and if you own more than three adults,give a little more to prevent fighting over food,so remember always give your hamster a little more than it eats when you own more than three adults.And change your food daily.
