    Those of us who have lived in multi-pet homes for all of our lives preach that it is never a good idea to allow different species of animals to live, or even play, together. The most popular combo is Rabbits and Guinea Pigs. And then I saw a vet program where the guinea Pig had to have a leg amputated because it was attacked by it's bunny cagemate.

    Hamsters are solitary animals. They prefer to live alone. The energy level and different life-style of a mouse would drive a hamster insane. The hamster would quickly dispatch (kill) it's unwelcome house guest.

    Don't even try it, it only takes a milli-second for the mouse to be killed.

    No, it particularly is impossible. That a million/2 mouse hamster toddler is gonna finally end up delivery defects with 2 heads a million eye 5 tails and prefer 30 ft. So superb guess is get yet another hamster and yet another mouse and notice what occurs.

    It all depends on what kind they are. They are more likely to not but if you wanted to try you could put them together for a while watch them and if they don't they don't. but wish you luck on that.
