At first your hamster may be frightened of you, do not worry! This is completely normal. Hamsters need time to settle down in their new environment. It takes an average hamster 3-4 days to get comfortable with its new surroundings, inside and out of the cage. So although it may be tempting, don’t touch your hamster until the 3-4 days have passed. To get your hamster used to your voice, you could talk or sing to it in a soothing tone. Comment below if you have a question or suggestion.
