Default Re: Worried about my little dwarf...

Hamsters sometimes change their behaviours and routines for no obvious reason.

My dwarf Edwina has spent a lot of time underground lately and forages whenever she surfaces. It could be a seasonal thing and with the winter on its way they spend more time foraging and building their underground nests.
I've checked her over and everything is how it should be so no worries there.

It doesn't matter if he only picks up the scattered food because that's what they'd do naturally.
Make sure that his water bottle works ok.

What i would do if you can is to try and lure him out of his house with a treat or pick him up if he's tame enough to give him a health check.
