I just bought a hamster today and I'm pretty excited about it.
I think rodents are some of the most adorable animals.
I don't think this little hamster was handled much at the store and he is pretty scared when I put my hand near him (and bit me a few times, which is expected).
I know I'm just going to have to keep spending time getting him used to my hands. But I was wondering if anyone here has some advice on how to adjust a new hamster to people. I'm pretty sure he's a baby, but not 100% certain.
I was able to hold him for a couple minutes earlier without him seeming too upset, but he really really wanted to jump back in his cage.
