🐹 How to tame your hamster 🐹

This is just my personal method for taming hamsters which has worked for me, I hope you can find some of these tips useful for taming your new hamster 😊 Some hamsters are more timid than others, so some may take longer than others to become tame, but just be patient and keep trying 💪

    Such a sweet hamster. I’m getting one on Monday. The tips for leading are incredible. I’ll definitely use that method.

    But doesn’t the hamster get depressed and ill if it’s kept awake during the day? That’s what happens to humans who stay awake during nights for too long.

    Tysm!!!!, my hamster is tamed!

  8. Gacha goddess Kim on July 1, 2021 at 8:48 am

    Actually when feed them from your hand it slowly encourages them because one animals always use us humans for their own benefit like when a wild animal goes into an urbanized place and people start feeding them then they’ll come back because they get the idea like “Oh their feeding me”

    About that, some comments are saying "why are you not posting" well vanilla ham ham is not posting for almost a year which is now, are you thinking.. That vanilla ham ham needs a break? Well your wrong, its because the owner of the hamster either died or something else.. thoigh i did really enjoy vanilla ham hams videos also, before vanilla the hamster existed, there was a hamster called noodle. She doed before vanilla came, but vanilla died too, and since they both died, they got a new hamster which is in this video called butterscotch, also please do not say butterscotch replaced vanilla, because if vanilla died without getting another hamster what would you expect? There would not be any videos about making foods and things anymore. If vanilla ham ham never posted this wouldnt happen.

    *Thanks for reading this*

    Well when my hamster was new it was newborn and when I try to touch it my hamster always bite

    At the first my hamster keep sleeping and I knock the cage many time so my hamster wake up

    I really make a mistake 😀

    But how does your hamster don’t bite
    My hamsters scare me when he keep biting the cage

  23. Fox Playz on July 1, 2021 at 9:07 am

    i dont use hamster balls bc they can be harmfull but she always bites when i put my hand in her cage so i put the ball in near her and if she gets in ill put my hand out and if she crawls in my hand ill see if she wants to go back and if not i play with her, but she always makes me bleed when she bites me

  24. Nicky The Demon on July 1, 2021 at 9:07 am

    Is there a way to not get bitten?
    Getting bitten is scary for me and I kinda want to avoid it

    my first hamster (toby) was super playful the day i brought him home. he was a Chinese dwarf hamster. the first day he would play around and crawl all over me but now with my new one which is a teddy bear syrian (ravioli) he is very nervous so it’s very hard getting used to this.
