I recently adopted a syrian hammy from some very nice people. They said it's 6 months old and the reason it was up for re homing was they just didn't have the time for it. I'ts a lovely hamster!! The only thing that im worried about is that it acts very strange. It's hard to explain but it walks like its drunk? Its very weak and wobbly and shakes like it moves its head up and down when it's eating but it doesnt seem bothered by any of it, do you think it could have brain damage or anything wrong with it?? It was in quite a small cage when i got it and had no wood or anything to chew and as soon as i put it in my cage it went for the wood and chewed it like crazy!! I've had 2 hammy's before and they never acted like this. I will get some piccy's of her this evening when she wakes up as shes very pretty!!
