Hello, hope someone is reading this who has or has had a hamster! We are looking after a friend's 6 week old hamster. It has an amazing cage with tunnels etc but seems to be terrified of us. We have moved it to where there is less noise have tried giving it extra treats but it still cowers in its tunnel or house whenever we are near it! We talk softly to it and have stopped trying to pick it up but its still stressed. Its moved its bedding out of its house and taken its bedding and some food into the tunnel since we cleaned it out. It never seems to sleep either, its awake morning noon and night! Oh my word, all suggestions gratefully received, please - thank you a worried Lois x
