It's always important to know a lot about a pet before you get them. Most hamsters aren't that social, and if you want that in a rodent, you'd be better off with a rat. But, given that he/she is now your pet, enjoy it for what it is. They are not cuddly animals, but do enjoy eating fresh veggies, and using a wheel :)

Just because animals can't talk, does not mean they should not be heard

I did lots of research before getting him, and I had one before. Oh well he's still cool.

Mine is like that too, so I say if you want a cuddly small pet, get a cat. :P Hamsters arent snuggly critters.

1 Male ~ 5 Females
3 Bronze Cories
1 Hamster

Yeah I agree. I have a cat and she is my homie. But I want to get rats someday.

i had a hamster when i was a kid. it was the most unfriendly thing ever. never wanted to be touched, and tended to bite when picked up.

My hamster is not agressive, but he is shy....since i posted this though, he has warmed up to me a little. I think I chose the wrong pet...but I'll just take good care of him for the rest of his life and know better next time.

My husband will tell you that hamsters are mean and bite. But I had hamsters as a kid and was never bit by them. I had a teddy bear named Peaches (found out later she was a he) and I used to carry him around in my pocket. He loved interacting with me and my friends.

I had another hamster named Remington Steel (that will date me for anyone who knows who that is)

The best small furry pet I've ever owned were guinea pigs! OMG, I love them! They coo and are friendly if handled properly, and they do this funny thing called 'popcorning'. They hop up and down and around. It's so cute!
