Default Re: How to hold a hamster

Will he climb right on to your hand when you hand feed him? I've found just letting them do that for a while then once they're comfortable with it I begin to lift my hand a fraction & gradually build up, if that doesn't work you could try something like a mug, let him climb into that then put your hand in front so he can walk out onto it.
Or you could just cup both hands under him & lift him slightly that way.
Whichever you choose to do if he's a timid ham just go slowing increasing height & time very gradually.
