    Speaking as a vet best to leave it until it grows/falls off. Most things wont 'agree' with small furries I am afraid :-(
    How much is on it?

    You may have to bite the bullet and snip it out. Poor hammy may look a bit rough for a few weeks but it will grow back, and there's no risk of harming him

    I would , very carefully, snip it off, you don't want hammy licking it when washing :wideyed:
    I love hamsters, they are so cute, just like dormice :D I hope you can get it off.

    Best wishes RRB

    Oil takes oil based paint out, animal,fat oil is the best but a vegi oil will di it as well.
    Get a little oil on your fingers lift paint part away from body and gently rub I get a piece of kitchen Towel and remove oil and paint should lift away

    Give it an overall re-spray. That way, at least it'll be a consistent colour :D


    PS: before anyone reports me to the RSPCA, this is a joke, OK? I love small furry animals. Particularly with a side order of fries :)

    I'll get me coat .............

    Lol @jay hay-char. Bumpy boy seems none the worse for his adventure & has retreated to his toadstool house after having a good haircut. He does look a tad patchy because of it, but he can carry off that "punk" vibe me thinks. Thanks for making me smile. Have a good Sunday.
    Ali. :)

    Glad to hear he's OK and I hope you have a good Sunday too.

    Can't help feeling - if he's looking punky - that you need to re-think his name :D

    Can we have a photo of the punk hamster Alison?

    OMG, just too cute, he is adorable, just like Dory and Dizzy. My grown up daughter used to have hamsters when she was a teenager, Nibbles, Fudge and Teddy Bear <3
