Whew! It was looking like we never were going to find him. After almost 24 hours missing, Alexandra and I were resigned to the fact that we might find him eventually, just not alive. We looked EVERYWHERE. Cupboard, drawers, pockets…even places that were impossible for him to get into! We were trying to THINK like a hamster. Nothing. So, I decided to make dinner instead. Maybe if we just let him do his thing, he would come back on his own. He needed some more alone time. or he was already stiff as a board. We weren’t sure. So, I thought I’d make some homemade sweet potato fries. Why not. First things first…crank the oven to 425. Get it hot baby! Well, that’s too hot for a hamster I guess, because in about 5 minutes the little guy crawled out from behind the stove! ” HE’S ALIVE!!!“, I screamed! He also kid of scared the pants off me. So, life has returned to normal in my little place. HP is back to living the dream in his cage.
