"Shannon -- the only female hamster I ever had squealed a lot. Squealing is a sign of fear in hamsters. My advice to new hamster owners is not to bother your hamster once you first take it home for a few days and put him or her in the cage. Let them adjust before you start handling them. They have no idea where they are or what that big thing is that keeps coming towards them (your hand)! Amrit -- It is normal for hamsters to chew on their bars. My first hamster made it into a hobby and nearly chewed all of the paint off the bars of his cage. There are several things you can try, like rubbing pickle juice on the bars (they usually don't like the taste) or finding alternate things for your hamster to chew on. Kukkiii might not like chew sticks, but he/she might like to chew on toilet paper rolls or blocks of wood. Also, anyone looking to buy a hamster, in my opinion, if you want a more docile pet, try choosing a male. Be sure to clean your hamster's cage at least once a week! Never keep any hamsters in a cage together unless they are dwarf hamsters and have been together since birth. Even then, beware of fights. "
