Default How cuddly are your hammys?

How cuddly are your hamsters?? Mine wriggles madly while you hold him but then in the middle of the night he rattles the cage bars and squeaks his head off until you come and give him a cuddle and a banana chip.... If you just give a banana chip he'll carry on rattling the bars till you give him a hug... He's really tame but not too cuddly as he won't sit still...Are your hamsters like that?

My girl isnt cuddly as such ( she wont be still for long enough) but she is very needy, especially when she is in heat. She used to be happy playing in her ball or her playpen, but now she doesnt seem to want to do any of that and prefers playing with me on the sofa. Sometimes she will climb up my arms and down my back so I have to catch her, sometimes she will randomly climb my hair and sit on my head. If I am super lucky she will sit on my shoulder, stick her nose in my ear and snuffle or sometimes squeaks (whispers sweet nothings in my ears haha) She mainly likes to "treadmill" over my hands or crawl under my dressing gown and see where she gets too. On the one hand I should be happy that she wakes up and wants to play with me. But on the other hand it is very distracting when I need to study or have assignments to do. I feel bad when she is awake and in her cage and I feel like I have to play with her as much as possible before I go to bed so that she isnt as unfulfilled when she spends hours by herself before she goes to bed haha. I probably created my needy monster haha

My hamster Duncan is super cuddly, he's the calmest hamster I've ever had! He'll fall asleep in my hand after a few minutes of exploring a bit. I think it's up to your hamster as an individual as well as how old they are and how tame they are. Young hamsters tend to be full of energy and won't sit still for even a second. However, an older hamster may be a bit less antsy. I've also had hamsters though that want nothing to do with me at all! It really all comes down to each hamster

Jasper isn't really cuddly. He likes being held and having the attention, but he also likes climbing all over me and trying to jump off things. He is incredibly tame though, and I credit it that to his breeder.

I have noticed that when my brother wants to hold Jasper, he always climbs back onto my hand as he is a little Mummy's boy lol.

Pip loves climbing up me to sit on my shoulder, she puts up with being stroked and loves burrowing into my dressing gown and using the sleeves as tunnels..!

My roborovski hamster, Fairy is a sweet girl who likes to explore her cage and gather her food. She will stay out and about whilst I talk to her but is not keen on hands anywhere near her.

My female syrian, Kashi loves to be fed through the bars and to have lots of cardboard bags and boxes with food hidden inside to chew. She bites and doesnt like to be handled. She also tries to get out of any play pens and doesnt seem to enjoy them at all.

Gopal, my chocolate syrian male likes to sit and watch the world go by. He will gladly go into his play box and allows the odd strokie but doesnt really enjoy them.

Arun, my fluffy cream syrian adores playbox time. He will leap into his transport box and allows strokies when in there but gets too busy once in the playbox.

Your hamster sounds like a real character. It must be lovely to have cuddles with him.

Three of mine are really happy to be held or cuddled but Jessie thinks that there is too many exciting things in the world to want to sit still and be held. She is however, really friendly and likes it if you play with her in her playbin and talk to her whilst she's in her cage.

James loves to snuggle up in a fold of fabric or a pocket and have a little snooze which is really quite cute.

Smile Re: How cuddly are your hammys?

OMG! Rads & chesca_27, your hamsters are just like mine. Wasabi loves attention, being stroked, being groomed, and always climbs all over me and seems to love to jump from my hand to my lap even though my hand is only like 1 inch away from my lap. When it's winter or the beginning of spring it's a whole other story. I would go to give her some food and she'd crawl up my arm and try to hop on my bed. Then she acts like she's not going to survive without me cuddling with her for 5 minutes.
