The learning abilities of hamsters who have been showered with affection
The hypothesis that hamsters that are shown human affection will be able to learn faster is proven to be true.
Whilst animals are able to be benefit from the affection that we give them, it is also a fact that we human beings in turn benefit from the affection shown to us by our pets. Domesticated animals are kept at home as pets for children to play with and also for security, as in the case of guard dogs. Dogs and cats are also being used to help elderly patients to show love and affection and this has been proven to have healing effects on them. Dogs are also trained to help blind persons to walk on streets and even to cross roads!
The experiment can also be done using a different kinds of feedlike dried shrimps.
How will the results be if the experiment was done using white mice shown affection vs. wild mice? What about dogs? or cats?

Be careful when handling hamsters. Although they can be friendly, they do also bite when nervous or upset. Wear gloves to prevent injury.
