Roborovski hamsters are a very small breed of ham-ham. These critters may look super duper cute, but they can be just as aggressive toward their own kind. Hamsters largely enjoy a solitary life. Courtesy of fanpop.com images5.fanpop.com

Hamsters groom A LOT! They like to keep clean and smooth. You can usually see a hamster doing this soon after it wakes up. It is a great bonding experience when a ham-ham grooms itself in your lap.

One tell-tale sign of a happy hamster is one that stretches and yawns, especially in your lap. Ham-hams who feel at home in their surroundings will get cozy by stretching. Courtesy of cuteoverload.com cuteoverload.files.wordpress.com

Take care of your ham-ham's teeth! Hamsters need hard snacks like salt tablets to chew on or else their little teeth will grow too long. Overgrown teeth become easier to chip and that can be painful. Irritable ham-hams with long teeth will chew on their cage bars if you're not careful! Watch a hamster yawn when he/she wakes up and inspect their chops.
