How to Handle a Hamster Correctly

Handling a hamster correctly is pretty easy.  Make sure you approach them conspicuously enough that they know you’re coming.

  1. Pet them a little before picking them up.
  2. Scoop up your hamster, making sure you never squeeze them.
  3. Handle them with open hands. They will get a kick out of walking on your hands, so make sure you give them a place to walk!
