Can't speak for hamsters, but ferrets certainly do. On their first 
encounter with our Lab puppy (who was dashing in circles around the 
cage, panting and drooling and barking) the ferrets emitted a series of 
high screeching discords unparallelled in my musical memory. After that 
I wanted to name them Shostakovich and Stravinsky, but the girls 
overruled me.
