Another Hamster Bites the Dust :(

Last week Seth's hamster (Sniffy) went missing. This is not an uncommon occurrence in our house. We've tried many things to keep the hamsters in their cages, including locks on the cage doors. The little guys are tricky, though. Thankfully, most of the time we find them & put them back in their harm-no foul. In fact about a month ago, Coy's hamster (Stuart Little) had gotten out twice in one night. He learned to bite the latch (which you can't put a lock through) & push up on the door @ the same time. We watched him to see how he kept escaping, and ended up having to tape that door shut!
If you have been reading my blog for any time now, you might remember my post from May 2008. Coy's hamster had gotten out of his cage. It ended up dying in our air vent. We paid an air duct cleaning company $650.00 to come clean our vents & retrieve the body. The guy showed me where they found it. Turns out the hamster was just behind a panel in the furnace in the garage. Well, I'll give you one guess where poor Sniffy was found today :( I am thankful that the guy showed me where he found Stewart Little & I'm thankful for my father-in-law coming & taking the panel off our furnace for free, because I really have much better things to do w/$650.00....

Hopefully we'll need it to be buying plane tickets to Colombia soon. No we don't have any new news, but we're hopeful :)
