I woke up this morning to a find my two dogs attacking my computer desk and going nuts. At first I thought they were just playing, and told them to cut it out...afterall it was 5:30am. A closer look told me there was something they are trying to get at behind the desk....then the alarm in my head goes off.....Hamster! But I look over at the cages and they were both closed and sealed. But the attention they were giving the desk made me get up to take a look.
The minute I stepped out of bed I stepped in something wet...further investigation told me that it was pee.. :( So I look over again at the cage and realize the tower for the cage is open.... now I know it must be the hamster they're chasing. So I force the dogs out and begin to look for it behind the desk... nothing. In the closet...nothing, under the bed...nothing. Just as I was giving up hope that it was going to make it (probably got biten and would not make it) I look in the corner of my room behind some bags and there it is.
Hiding in the corner in a "praying" sort of manner...and looking up at me with its pitched black eyes. Poor thing...must of been scared to death. Funny thing is that it was rather out in the open....I wonder how it got by them without it noticing...especially the Siberian. He has an excellent nose.
Happy to say, we narrowly escaped a catastraphe this morning, and I'm glad because it would have been my own fault....I was cleaning the cage last night and forgot to close the tower's lid. :(
