my friggin hamster (who i love dearly)has turned into houdini

firstly...yes i am writing this at 4AM IN THE MORNING

so.... i wake up at about 3.40ish and her some weird noises by my curtains and it was beginning to irritate me (NB: i had my window fully open so HUGE gaping hole but pull my curtains, one in front so birds dont fly in and the second hooked over the handle so dont let the light in too early in the morning) so.... i get up in the dark, no glasses obviously so a bit blind to say the least...

so i shake the curtain thinking it is a moth or fly keep flapping against the curtain..nothing then i pull the window out a little bit and i hear a loud bump of something hiting the floor......
...... by this time some people with poor bowel control would not have been so lucky..... i thought oh my F*****god what was that?!.....

........heart facing faster and faster and then thoughts of oh crap how i am gonna get a bird or whatever this huge thing is that i have out of my bedroom and at this time it was still dark......so ran over got glasses and turned light on.....look on the floor nothing and i was like i really didnt imagine that...crap where has it gone (NB:my bed has a lot of storage boxes under it) so i but my very brave cap on and had a quick peek under the bed and who do i find......

.......Honey (the hamster) the great escape artist.....

2 thoughts still going through my mind 1)..am i dreaming 2) WTF?>?!?>??!!?!?!?! my hamster has not only escaped from a high cage but 2) he has run up my curtains and was about to commit suicide...well thats what would have happened. i cant believe that i woke up and found him otherwise i would have found him on the driveway this morning, dont think even HONEY houdini could survive that jump!!

i'm not really sure if i will be able to sleep, i have made sure the window is SHUT! but my heart is still racing.....i am pleased it wasn't a pigeon or any other species but could have really done without this!!! he is now safely back in his old cage(which is only a wire cage,no plastic), chocolate drops saved the day(i leward(?sp) him back with them!!!)

this has NOT been a fun evening/morning/sleep

oh harry is lovely :) i love hamsters....he wont be able to escape from the cage he's in now as long as i remember to shut the lid.... thankfully there isnt (usually)very far for him to go, cos i live in new build and there are no holes.....did however think i could open a window in my house but clearly not

perhaps he thinks he is Jai from home and away and that he is indestructable!!....i think i shall stop him from watching it...

i cant sleep and now am hooked on mahjong!doh

I had a hamster that was a master of escaping. He could sqeeze under the the gap between the bottom of the bars and the tray and escape that way. In the end we had to put him in a tank with pieces of persects on top held down by books with very small beathing holes.

I called him snowdrop, but in light of his tallent he became known as snopdrop bond - because I'm a geek.

Dicky!

Awwww I have a hammy called Cookie and she's 2 now. She's getting on a bit so sleeps 24/7 and eats and drinks and that's about it. I love her soooo much =D



Someday I'll wish upon a star
and wake up
where the clouds are far behind me
Where troubles melt like lemon drops
away above the chimney tops
that's where you'll find me

Hamsters are so silly!

My last hamster headbutted something on its cage, escaped, and started scratching at my door. Then it escaped again when we were at my aunt's house and I was woken up in the middle of the night because it was in my aunt's bed! It also crawled up behind a radiator and got stuck so I had to push it out with a ruler. Then it managed to get inside the couch and we had to cut the couch open to get it out.





I put it down on paper and then the ghost does not ache so much.

honey is now back in his old boring cage, i took the other one back....they were like why?? so i said well i dont think it is safe for my hamster to be able to chew the lid off and then nearly escape through the window...num nuts!!! he seems ok today from his little adventure.
thankfully if he does escape there isnt generally anywhere for him to go but from now on gonna keep the toilet seat down and never leave a window open when i go out!!

when i went for a sunbed today ended up talking to the owner about him, she said she had one that escape and day she heard a 'plop' and her hamster fell out from the chimney into the (unlit) firplace....
these hamsters are naughy pickles...but i love him! :)

i hope my hamster lives till 4 :) i'll be devestated when he's gone xx

There is a book about this written from the hamsters perspective. It's written for children but you may find it quite amusing.
The book is called,
I, Houdini: The Amazing Story of an Escape-Artist Hamster. by Lynne Reid Banks

My little hamsterdude, Penguin, has yet to escape. Thank goodness! I don't know what I'd do if he got out.

But I did put him down in my sink when I was changing his bedding (the sink was stopped up so he couldn't go down it, and he managed to climb out of it! He just looked at me like 'what?'



Men come and go, but dust accumulates.

haha. i have on a couple of occasions woken during the night to have something climbing on me, and not having much sense when half asleep just lunged at them hoping they were hamsters instead of mice or something. hamsters are so amazingly clever, i miss having them!

I had a little hamster called Pickle when I was about 5, and he escaped (he was a ball of fluff!!) and he made a nest underneath my kitchen sink and then (somehow) found a way through to the living room floor and chewed through a piece of carpet - mum saw him, and tried to get him and whilst trying to get him, the toast burnt and then the smoke alarm went off!! LOL! We had to take him back and get Pickles the 2nd though.....

I have little Didge now, but she's really good. x

Awh!!!

Glad he's okay!



So many faces I have seen, so many places not yet been.
So many people I have met, so many names not to forget.
Such beautiful people in their right, laughing, dancing through the night.
So many faces I have seen, the futures so bright it can't be seen.
Is any of this even real?
