After I created this thread he started sniffing around and looking outside the cage, so I went to the cage and put my hand there and he came onto my hand and we went to the playground and played for half an hour and then I brought him back home. I guess he just wanted to be alone for awhile and didnít pay any attention to me. Usually when I pet him he turns around and licks my finger, but he didnít care for me petting him at all. Today everything was back to normal.

I was concerned there might be a health issue or something.
I think hamsters are just a bit like us, we can sometimes have good and bad days. Iíve had this with my hamster and like you I wonder if something is wrong but they are solitary animals and sometimes as you say, they just like to do there own thing. As long as heís eating and generally pottering around his cage and using his wheel, I would assume all is good. Turning round and licking your finger is super cute, not sure Iíll ever reach that kind of friendship with my Hams, but you never know.
