Default Re: How to recapture an escaped hamster

I would probably just go back to sleep as soon as i found out it was a hamster
My room is hamster secure at night though so its not that important if they escape!

haha it shocked me more actually, nothing wakes him but he walked over my foot first and I was still asleep going "there's a spider climbing over me!!".... then I woke up :/ haha

I've never had an escapee.. i put pegs on all their doors just in case.. we once lost Bo down the back of the settee once, i cut my hands to shreds looking for her down the back then saw her sitting by my feet watching me... i thought i was going to have a heart attack..

I am glad Cordelia just comes over to us, she doesnt try to protest at all, we havent had to use food to get her back bless her. She loves my 10yr old daughter so if she is up when she escapes its her that puts her back lol. (She is sneaky and can open her pods grrr)

I've had no escapes yet, touch wood. When Pudding was in a HH, the small top door was a little weak, so I reinforced it with a couple of binder clips, just in case. Don't know if she could have opened it on her own, but I felt better knowing she definitely couldn't with the clips on.

my hamster is really good, his cage is open most of the evening and he is able to run freely round my bedroom. when hes had enough he goes back in his cage and goes to sleep. alot of the time he will go back in his cage just to run on his wheel!!

i love it when hes out hes a right little explorer. he climbed up a dress in my wardobe and was hanging from the coat hangers, i could hear them clinking. he can also climb up my walls as they are chip paper walls and up the curtains and on top of the wardobes hes a right little climber!!

I've done this for over a year and never once has he gone to sleep outside the cage or hurt himself. although once he did get hold of a whole packet of dried apricots that i had to wrestle from his as their bad for hammys!! i must admit I've never had a hamster that I've been able to do this with, i think he just has a really good personaility, he isn't a chewer so i dont have to worry about that, and i think he feels safe in his cage as he always returns

at 3am yesterday, we heard a rustling in the bathroom. my hubby thought it was a rat, he got his bb gun (!) and it turned out to b Charlie, in the bathroom cabinet, he'd opened his habitrail pod, got into the skirting boards, and used the pipes or floorboards somehow to get upstairs, he definetly didnt use the strairs so must've come through the floor! we managed to tempt him into the bathroom bin with a grape and return him!

Gosh, a BB gun
Glad you managed to get naughty Charlie back though Grapes seem to work well, I used a grape and a biscuit to get my first hamster back when he snuck under the piano
