    My hamster Phoebe had babies 8 weeks ago, when it was time to seperate boys from girls we left the girls with her in the same cage now there is only 1 girl left and both mum and baby still seem very affectionate towards each other does anyone know if this will last? has anyone heard of a mum and baby hamster remaining happily together? :0)

    Thanks for your help, they are Syrians so I will separate them. It is hard to believe when you see them cuddled up together that they will end up killing each other but I know they will!
