Hi,i've got a syrian and two roborovski hamsters & i find that if i leave them to wake up themselves at night then they dont get up much before 10pm,which is no good as we have to be up by 7am so can't stay up till 2 or 3 in the morning handling them and letting them run free before putting them in their exercise balls.The robo's i dont let free-i just handle them in the bath tub for twenty mins before letting them run around in the ball for twenty mins. Do you find your hamsters whatever species they are dont wake up till late?What do you do about this?Do you wake them up earlier in the evening like 7pm or is that too early to wake hamsters up. I'm planning to get a further couple of robo's so have thought perhaps its best i start then waking the robo's first about 7pm & handling each pair in the bath tub so they cant escape for twenty mins & then let them run in their ball twenty mins before putting them away and waking the syrian hamster to get him out. Do syrian hamsters need to be allowed out of their cages for a longer period of time than robo's?to spend interacting with them.Dont they need longer to run free as well as being handled and then finally go in their ball until say you're ready for bed. I feel robo's arent that keen on being handled for long periods of time so dont need to be kept out of the cage as long as a syrian.Whereas a syrian needs more time out of its cage. What are your views on these issues?
