    It's six inches long.! Is this normal.?

    My hamster which is now a year old looks huge to me, for a hamster that is, he is 6" long and 3" wide, tried to weigh him but he keeps running off the scales.
    Is it possible I overfed him, do hammy's get obese.?

    if hes running of the scales, then he cant be too fat. get worried when hes rolling off the scales.

    Not sure if he is over-sized but any animal can become obese!

    you made me stop and read this lol wondered what was going on

    and i agree all animals will overfeed if given the chance, my vet once told me that cats will only eat what they needed to eat but 2 years later he was telling me my cat was overfeed

    I am sure they can get fat.

    I would get a tupperware pot, weigh it, then weigh it with your furry friend in it. Deducting the first weight etc - you could be breaking all sorts of hamster records.
