My hamster bites my friends.

My hamster dosent bite me ever, he only bites other people.

He has never ever bitten me but when my friends come round he bites them.

Your hamster probably doesn't feel as safe with your friends as he does with you.

You can also ask Dr. Marie for a second opinion on your pet's condition.
