With my hamster Twinkle I honestly thought it was never going to happen, I was just re-reading the thread I have on him today and I forgot how I could do something with him and then he would shoot back into his house, but then come back out again. It was like his security blanket, things started to go really well about the 6 week mark and he is sooooo tame now.
I'm so glad Twinkle is tamed! Thank you for giving me a few tips with the bathtub method.
