Unfortunately, re-bonding isn't really an option once they've fallen out. Keeping them together wouldn't have had any benefits for the hamsters, and possibly you as well. It would be stressful for the hamsters and stress would result in a weakened immune system for both of them. Whenever my hamsters began falling out, I had trouble falling asleep every night. I was terrified that I would wake up to find a dead or very injured hamster(s). Once they were separated my stress was relieved immensely. I wouldn't wish that kind of stress upon anyone.

The hamsters might act a little more skittish than usual in the next week. After all, it's probably the first time they haven't lived with another hamster! But they'll settle in soon.

Good luck p, and if you have more questions please don't hesitate to ask
Thanks ive checked them this morning and they both seem fine other than beong a bit more skittishxx going to pets at home to by some other toys and things for them bothxc
