Its a new hamster to our family, and I think it is a little shy and scared of its new suroundings. We just got it today.
Do you have any kind words of wisdom to share with me so I can talk her out of hating this hamster. I already told her that we won't take it back because pets are for keeps. BTW- she is ten.

PS- her old hamster died yesterday and it never bit any one, so my DD was shocked and disappointed when this new hamster bit her.

I just went and put my hand in the cage. I was going to pet it from the side. It whipped around, hissed at me, and tried to bite me too. Now I'm scared of it too....
I told her that we would leave it alone and try to at least pet it again tomorrow. I'm worried though!

Thanks for all your responses. We got it at petsmart. They did tell us that this hamster did not like other hamsters but was great with people. We held it right away at the store and it was fine. We held it again when we got it home and it was fine. Then after it had been in its new cage for several hours is when it bit my DD.
As far as being pregnant... LOL... I told my DD earlier that it would be kinda funny if this hamster wasn't really "fighting" with the other hamsters and wouldn't it be shocking if we got the "buy one, get eight free" deal. We both laughed it off as not being possible... but now that you mention it, she/he is really fat!
