The hamster was bought at Christmas nearly 3 weeks ago, it's a baby Syrian Male. cookie has only ever had my 9 year olds hand in the cage. We have got him to the stage where he is ok with her feeding him food between fingers and he has taken from her palm once and hes fine with her stroking down his back, so far so good! To get him to this stage she has had a couple nibbles, and 1 big bite where he drew blood- that was wen he took from her palm. Sinse then she dosnt want to do any more tho shes extremely dissapointed as shes desperate 2 hav a trusting friendship with him and hav him love her and let her hold him eventually. Can i take over? Will my scent confuse him as well as hers? If I start the taming process again from the start but with my hand instead of hers will we get there in the end? The most important question- Once hes tame with me will he be tame with my daughter?
