I brought home 2, teddy bear hamsters from Seattle. My youngest daughter was ecstatic.
About a week later one of our cats got the cage open and was preparing to make a meal out of the smallest one, when Lisa rescued it.
Poor thing died not too long after that.
Hamsters must not be too smart, and or, I have the smartest cats on earth. We bought a new cage so that it wouldn’t be so easy for them to get into, and yet….
Last night I got up to get a drink and I noticed Romeo watching, very intently, under the fridge. I’ve seen that look before and I knew exactly what he was waiting for.
The cage was open and the hamster was gone. Now, if I were a hamster and my cage were opened and I was in a house full, no, a room full of cats, I would NOT get out, but, it seems that this one did.
I had to move the fridge to get to him and he’s missing a bunch of hair, but he looks to be OK. Only time will tell.
Rodents, sheesh! BIG HUGS, Steph
