Travelling the backroads in Aug.with my friend,Cathleen, & my granddaughter,Savannah, we discovered many items to be thrown away from yard sales we were too late to go to, of course Cathleen said Savannah must have a hamster cage sitting out for trash. After church the next day we were at Petsmart getting the hamster she named Hope.
Well,there was a reason it was sitting out to be trashed, it fell apart while we were cleaning it & we couldn`t figure out how to put it back together. I had an extra cage in the shed, so she went in it.
She was fine & had a little ball she could roll around in too, it was scotch taped closed though...things were going so well her mom allowed her to take it home. Mon.after school I get this phone call from Savannah that Hope had escaped from the cage.She was crying so hard I could barely tell what she was saying.They live in a townhouse with 3 floors. I got her calmed down & told her she was most likely in her room somewhere,well they did find her under her bed. They put her back in the cage & she promptly escaped right before their eyes, so that night she rolled in her ball all around Savannah`s room stressing her out so Savannah couldn`t sleep.
I recieved her back the next day,so I took the measurements & went to walmart & bought a tote to set the cage down inside. It was tight so I knew she couldn`t get out but she still had her wheel hooked to the cage to play on.
Well, don`t you know I went to check on the creature later, & she was wedged so tight in the bars of the cage & against that tote where she had been escaping from that I thought she was dead. I carefully took her out, she was not dead but I am glad that I checked on her when I did.The bars were embeded spots in her skin.Slowly over the next several days the bar marks went away & I am happy to report she is fine & healthy .She lives in the tote now with a new stand up wheel to run on which I listen to at night when I can`t sleep,squeek...squeek...
