Help!!! Every time I put my hand in my hamster's cage to pick him up, he closes his eyes and holds out his front paws over his face like he's scared of me. I don't know what to do to get him to like me. He only bit me once or twice in his whole life ( I only had him 3 days) and I really want to tame him so he's not so scared. I hate it when he flinches!! Please help someone!!!!

Try rustling the bedding close to him before you try to touch him so he "knows you are coming". Also try to scoop him up in your hands, not grab him from the top of his back as they think you are prey trying to attack them.

I do rustle the bedding before I touch him and i do cub my hands when I pick him up too. He just raises his paws like he's really scared of me. Do you think giving him a treat before I pick him up would work?
