Default Squeaking?!

Sweep has just been squeaking for the past few minutes. It's kind of like the noise you get (sorry about this!) when you have a really blocked nose and you're trying to blow it ... He has just woken up I think, and I've not been over to the cage yet today ... I've never heard this sound before from any hammy! Is he ok??

Sweep is trying to get your attention to give him some yummy treats or something along those lines, I'm sure that is perfectly normal, especially a new hammie while your just getting to know each other.

Maybe he's been dreaming. Just check he's ok in case he has hurt himself on something, but some hamsters are more vocal than others

Charlie has only squeaked twice - once when he was scared and once when he hurt himself, but if it's squeaking for no reason he could be just being vocal.

Ok thanks. I went over to him and he came over to say hello! I let him have a peanut in it's shell, which he happily ate. He then came over to me and put his little paws on my hand just as I was trying to take it out the cage! I think he was trying to shake hands LOL. So I stroked him a little and then let him have a 2 minute explore in his ball whilst I added a little more substrate (I'm hoping this will keep him warmer too!) and then put his toys back where they should be. I followed one of Erin's youtube videos, and mixed the old substrate with the new so he was pretty happy to go back in there. I have a couple of photos I shall put up when I've finished eating my lunch (NOM NOM!). He's having his lunch right now. Can hear him nibbling away
