Hamster Dream Meaning and Interpretations


Hamster Dream Symbol – The hamster is a symbol of frivolity and happiness. Dreaming about this creature is a sign that you need to take a shopping spree and spoil yourself and others.

Hamsters are the bringers of simple pleasures and while it can be dangerous to overindulge in frivolity and bacchanalia, having a little fun is the prescription that your dreams are trying to give to you. Have a little fun and enjoy life for the next few days without worrying about getting ahead or trying to make big decisions.

  1. My girlfriend had a dream that we were at my mothers shore house. There was a room full of laundry and she kept doing laundry, but she could never get it done. Then my nephews showed up and gave her two hamsters. That were normal. And she was given a third one that was small pink sick and had flees. She threw it in the sink and woke up.

  2. I had a dream the other night my pet hamster was swimming in a pool. He kept going in swim for a second then come out. Then after that at some point in the dream the hamster kept biting me. He attacked me until I had huge deep cuts all over my arms and back. I though it was just on my arms but rolled my sleeves up to find out these cuts were everywhere and I was bleeding a lot. I want to know what this means it’s really bothering me. Someone please help!!!!!!

One was a normal sized Hamster but it was dead at the bottom of the Cage, while the other one about the size of a small dog was doing a victory dance beside it.

Does anyone know what this could mean xx

  6. I’ve had a dream about a vengeful hamster escaping his cage all the time and leaving needles on the floor so I would step on them and hurt myself. I kept picking them up and looking for the little guy and then I felt him crawling up my leg, under my trousers and biting me repeatedly during the climb. I was trying to get him out without crushing him and it was quite scary and then I woke up. Not sure why he hated me so much lol.

  12. Amazing. I had a dream last night that I was playing with a hamster called Hamlet (too cute). I was having a lot of fun.
    In reality, I reached a big savings goal today and last night an expensive new bag I purchased online arrived (I’m usually extremely thrifty). So I would say this seems like a pretty great analysis.
