Missing!

Oh, we have terrible hamster problems here at Chez Things. You can read about the beginning of our hamster curse here. So, the latest involves Thing 2's Christmas hamster, Snowy. She desperately wanted one ever since her previous hammie died tragically a year or so ago. So, we got her a super cute winter white hamster for Christmas and she was THRILLED!


However, this past Saturday night, we went to dinner at our neighbors' house and when we came home, one of the tubes had been knocked off the side of the cage. And well, Snowy is M.I.A. No sign of her anywhere. It is very frustrating-I don't even know how to possibly find a very tiny hamster in our comparatively gigantic house (I mean in comparison to the hamster, b/c well, anything bigger than a shoe box is gigantic to a hamster...) I am sure she is sneaking around behind me every time I bend down to look under another piece of furniture-and laughing at me!! We feel pretty certain the dog did not eat it (although he has tried in the past with our other hamster, no not the one referenced above that we killed within hours, the one that replaced that one-he ate it and threw it up, and it lived, for 6 more months-NO, I am NOT making that up, can you even make stuff like that up?? I told you, hamster CURSED!!) b/c well, let's just say we are pretty sure, and leave it at that. But the cat seems a little shifty so I don't know...I'm actually quite certain, given that we got ANOTHER foot of snow this weekend (that makes 2 giganto snow storm this winter already-we live in the south for a reason-why the snow, Winter?? why??), that that little rodent hopped a plane for Bermuda. And I just may have to go look for her there....

I lost my hamster for months when I was a kid. We knew he was alive because dog food was missing every night even tho the dog was lock in my room away from her food. We finally set a live trap with peanut butter and caught him. Might want to try setting a live trap.

When I was a kiddo, I had a hamster (which I, incidentally, came to detest) and once he escaped and made his way into the basement where he was eating the birdseed (uncannily similar to hamster food). We got him with a live trap set with peanut butter as well. With your "luck" it sounds like a live trap may be a wise investment. Looking forward to the updates on the hamster hunt!
