Default Polski just did something weird

Hi, I've just had Polski out for a run and he's just laid down on my chest staring at my face for about five minutes. Literally he was just lying there and I was stroking him.

Usually he never sits still for more than a few seconds together and he was running about before and after.

He's 18months old now, is that normal as they get older or should I be worried?

They do sometimes do this "freeze" thing. I've seen it while they're walking around out of the cage - just freeze and stay in the same position for ages. Makes you wonder what they're thinking about! Maybe he was just relaxed and dopey and enjoying the stroking time. They can be very active at certain times of day and a bit dopey at other times of the evening.

It can be strange when hamsters sit still thinking.
They were probably really relaxed
They do have what me and my partner jokingly say are PTSD moments when they just stare into space for a minute thinking

Were his ears up? Sometimes they listen to something we can't even hear and stay still for ages.
Must have made a nice change to be able to stroke your hamster for a full five minutes. Maybe he simply enjoyed being near you.
I am a bit jealous.

I know this thread is slightly old - but I wonder if he was on your chest - maybe he could hear your heartbeat/feel it, and was trying to work out what it was !

Yes he was on my chest! Maybe that was it and was liking my heartbeat, thank you. X
