Default Human breath

Strange one but only had Maisy a week but she seems to hate my breath when I get up close and talk to her. Now my partner assures me i dont have bad breath but then hamsters obviously have very sensitive noses.

Not had this with any previous hamsters, just a case of getting used to my breath I hope?

My guess is it's less about the smell and more about personal space. Also air being blown on their face (inadvertently from talking) is universally not enjoyed by hamsters ��

Since you've only had her for a week, you need to give her longer to be completely tame.

Maybe she thinks you're going to eat her
