Default Re: Mean Hamster help

That's a bit mean to call a little hamster mean, lol!

Maybe she needs more time to settle in and doesn't like hands in her cage. She could be scared and bites because she feels threatened and not because she's aggressive by nature.

A human hand looks huge to a tiny creature like a dwarf hamster.

I'd scatter feed for a while and just talk to her softly. She may well sense that you are getting fed up with her which won't help things at all.

Enjoy watching her for a while, go easy on her and do things at her pace not YOURS.
