I caught the hamster!!!

For the last two...three hours...Magic has been whining at us. Now Magic is a pretty placid cat, whining is unusual for her. Usually means she got shut up some place and now she wants out. Joe checked on her a couple of times, but she wasn't trapped.


Magic started whining again...so I went to find out what was wrong with her. It took me a couple of minutes to determine that she was in fact in our room with the door open so I started to leave...then she darted out of Joe's closet over to mine. And she was chasing something.


Magic chased her out to where I could catch her, called for Joe ('cause I can't get up off the floor without hands), transferred Harvey to Joe and we moved her to her cage. Where we figured out that someone removed the tennis ball from the top of Harveys cage. (Tennis ball is a perfect size to cover a hole for more hamster trail)

We put the tennis ball back. And we fed her. She's had a rough night!

I'm glad we caught her...Ike would have been heart-broken.

The hamster might have gotten out on her own. I had a wiley one who could open his sleeping compartment, tried to gnaw his way through wood, push his wheel to a wall so he could push his lid open....hhhhhmmm...maybe he was Houdini reincarnated. I would spent 45 minutes at like 2 am, sifting through my messy room to find him.

To summarize my off track ravings: hamsters is wily-er than they should be for such tiny brains. You might wanna escape-proof, whether she let herself out or had assistance.

I might have suspected that except for the fact that the tennis ball was in Ike toy bin...not somewhere it would have fallen if Harvey shoved it out. Somebody moved it.
