18 Things Hamsters Hate

In this video, we’ll discuss the top 18 things that hamsters hate and you should avoid.  It goes without saying that hamsters are easier to care for than, say, dogs.

However, they also deserve a pleasant and quiet life, so it is better not to get carried away by the emotion of the moment.

Here are some of the MOST COMMON MISTAKES beginner hamster adopters make.

Loud noises

Loud noises are stressful for your hamsters because they have much more sensitive hearing than humans.
The sounds of slamming doors, vacuum cleaners, horror movies, noisy vehicles, blenders, or hair dryers can scare your little pet.

Bathing them

Hamsters are known to be very clean animals that groom themselves frequently. Therefore, they do not need a bath. These animals also have sensitive skin and bathing can cause problems with dry skin and fur. Bathing them can cause shock in a hamster.

If your hamster has dirt on a certain area of his body, you can clean it with a damp cloth.
Bathing in sand is also something most hamsters love. Provide your pet with a bowl of pet-safe litter.

Waking them up

Hamsters are crepuscular, nocturnal. This means that they naturally sleep during the day and are most active at dawn and dusk. This means you don't have to wake your hamster to play with it.

Instead, schedule your interactions for late afternoon or early evening after you've had enough rest.

Strong Smells

Hamsters have a very keen sense of smell. This is why hamsters hate overpowering odors like perfumes, deodorants, strong scented soaps, lotions, garlic, and some air fresheners.

Another thing hamsters don't like are essential oils. Don't keep them around your hammy, especially if they're undiluted. Hamsters also despise the smell of citrus fruits and olive oil. Likewise, make sure you don't use harsh cleaning products in your living space.

Cotton fluff bedding

Never use cotton fluff for nesting. Cotton lint is harmful because it is indigestible. If your hamster accidentally swallows it, it can cause a blockage in your pet's digestive system and lead to death.

The cotton can also wrap around the extremities and cut off circulation, leaving the extremities dead.

Too much change too often

Hamsters hate any type of change if it happens too often. This is why they are very scared when taken to a new home. They will need time to adjust to the new environment.

A dirty or smelly living space

Hamsters are very clean animals and appreciate a clean and pleasant environment. Dirty and smelly homes will create mental and physical health issues for your pet. Be sure to clean your hamster's cage regularly.

Sharing their territory

Because hamsters are territorial and quite solitary animals, it is usually best to have only one hamster per enclosure.
Most hamsters don't like to share their territory with another hamster.

These and many more are the things you should avoid so that your hamster lives happily with you.
