I keep getting emails and tweets asking me if we have managed to catch our escaped Hamster yet.
Sadly, the answer is no.
Hammy Pawper has so far evaded the open cage left in the middle of the floor, and the chocolate button left on a bit of paper, perched on top of a kitchen bowl.
In fact, I wasn’t sure that HP was even in the lounge anymore. But there are so many places in this house for a little hamster to hide, I wouldn’t know where else to start looking. read more
We are not having much luck with hamsters in this house.
Last night the kids had Hammy Pawper out in his ball, as we’ve got into the habit of doing. Of course I was supervising, i.e sitting at my computer NaNoWriMoing, but it all seemed fine.
The Lurcher was in the room but was showing very little interest, just moving out of the way when Hammy tried to run her down. The biggest hazard to HP’s health was DD3,who was following the ball round and round the room and had to be told repeatedly not to pick him up.
Of course, it all ended badly. The next time DD3 picked the ball and hamster up, DD2 made a grab for her pet and the ball was dropped. Of course it broke open and Hammy dashed under the sofa. read more
