    I baught my first hamster last mon, and she escaped her cage friday night and the cat got her. i was really upset. my parents baught me a new hamster, 6wks i think. v.young. shes very cute, but im finding it hard to adapt to her coz she bites sometimes and it really hurts. ot can i do to stop her doing it?

    will she stop doing it?

    she bites so hard my finger bleeds everywhere.

    Do you think she is biting because she is just not used to being handled yet? Maybe once she gets comfortable with you handling her she will stop biting. Can you were gloves for now?

    I'm sorry about your 1st hamster. could it be possible there is something in the varnish that is tricking her senses? Hey, at least she's telling the cat who's boss!

    Are you mad how would you have liked it when you were a baby if your parents hung you upside down to stop you crying...

    Never hang any animal upside down all this really teaches is to be scared of you..

    Never try and pick up a sleeping hamster as there reaction is to bite because you startled her..

    Gloves are a good training aid and will help reassure her that your not going to hurt her..

    I had hamsters when i was younger and they were feisty but within a week of constantly holding them both turned out very tame and relaxed as soon as i opened there cage they would come running straight to my hand but most of the time they would climb out stand up waiting for me to put my hand out for the to climb up.

    My hamsters loved to sit on my shoulder while i was watching tv...

    Before handling her wash your hands thoroughly and try again see how she reacts, But all it takes is patience and time and she will become a very loving tame hamster...

    You didn't help you hamster do anything except be scared of you. Biting it their natural reaction against preditors (they are on the bottom of the food chain as it is) but they will learn to trust.

    I've had hamsters since I was around 6 and never once did it take me longer than a week to train it to be hand tamed, all it takes is patience. There's no need for extreme measure with any animal.

    Perhaps this topic should be named "hamster bite" instead of "hamster death", hehe.

    Female hamster bites more. I avoid playing with my female hamster. Although my fat male hamster gave me a nasty bite that caused significant bleeding when I picked him up from the merchant but after reaching home since then he will never bite me no matter how I handle him. The conclusion: play with male hamster instead.

    Pardon me Chezza, but I mean that for hamsters only. Please don't get me wrong. Perhaps we can start a poll about this, hehe.

    I am talking about hanging a hampster upside down, I have one, a rescue, wild, no-body had touched her, NOW she is the sweetest thing you could imagine..She is still a wee timid, but she allows you to pick her up with NO BITES..And she was wild..It took patience and lots of it to get her to where she is..Definitely not having to hang the poor thing upside down..Thats darn right cruel :? :?

    Now I see it. You are talking about what hamstertrainer said. Yes, I agree with you. Only bats like to be up-side-down. I thought that is common sense.
