Hamsters are naturally full of energy. However, this does not give us a clear picture of their emotions. Is your hamster running its wheels out of boredom or joy? When it bites your finger whilst handling, is it mad or not? Before we get to know if hamsters miss their owners, do they have emotions, in the first place?
