Physco Hamster!!!!

Post by CRAZYU » Wed, 19 Mar 1997 04:00:00



I recently bought a hamster. In the pet store it was an active friendly
little thing, but now that I got it home and settled in it's acting up.
Anytime Itry to pick it up, talk to it, and sometimes for no particular
reason at all it screeches at me!!!  I've had several hamsters before and
this has never happened before. I can't pick it up or play with it AT
ALL!!! I'm at my wits end, Why is it doing this and what could I do to
stop it?

                    Thanks Much!!!

The screaming you mention is an indication of fear.  Just be patient
with your hamster and introduce it to your hand gradually by stroking
it before attempting to pick it up.  It should settle down soon.
