That's it really . We got the hamster in the summer for DS1 and he seemed to be awake earlier at that time. DS1 (9 yrs) was doing really well with handling him until he got bitten and then he was too scared to touch the hamster. I've been getting Charlie out in the evening once sll the chores are done (9 ish ) to keep him used to being handled but I would really like to encourage the hamster to wake earlier so I can help build up DS1s confidence to handle him again . I know hamsters are nocturnal but I'm hoping we could get him to wake about 5ish. Is this possible?
