You know, I didn't know it was necessary to handle a Syrian hamster...I thought they were solitary animals?

They like to be without other hamsters. But they're actually one of the tamest hamsters ever. Just with humans, no hamsters.

I know but I figured since they dont need other hamsters then they dont really care if a person holds them or not...

I guess with any and every pet it's a requirement to check their environment and make sure it's safe and comfortable every day...

Sorry for all the consecutive posts -_-

Lol thank you :)

SO daily:

-Change water
-Feed
-Check on hamster itself
-Check on environment (Make sure wheel is working, water bottle is working, Nothing is flipped over, no sharp edges, chew toys intact, etc.)

Here is what I do for my hamsters.

*Check food dish/water bottle for fullness.

I make sure check their food dish to make sure that its not empty. If it is, l add more food, if not, I move on. I also check their water bottle to make sure its not empty. If its close to empty, or is empty, I fill it. I also make sure the bottle works and that the hamster is getting enough water from it.

*Spot clean bathroom area

Hamsters are fastidious groomers and overall very clean animals. As such, they usually designate one corner of their cage as the "bathroom" area. I just scoop it up and toss it.

*Visual and Physical Check of Hamster's Health

I usually give my hamsters a visual check first, and if something looks off, I pick them up and look at whatever it is more closely. This proves difficult with the roborovskis so I just scoop them up in an empty peanut butter jar and do a visual check.

*Environment Check

I make sure to check their environment to make sure its all in order. If something is looking a little too worn, soggy, smelly, and can't be cleaned or fixed, I take it out and pitch it.

*Treats!!

I also make sure to give my hamsters a yummy treat on a daily basis. Whether it be a peanut or whatnot. This helps them to associate me with a positive reward and therefor reinforces their hand taming.
