So the hamster disappeared exactly 2 weeks ago and had not been seen since. We were about to give her up for lost when late last night we got a call that the neighbor found her roaming around the back yard. Well, more specifically, the neighbor's cat found the hamster. (That was actually another Google suggestion: use a cat ON A LEASH to see if the cat could find the hamster's whereabouts). No idea how she got out of the house but... Success!
Now she is back where she belongs. Only she's about twice her regular size... I think she ate ALL of that hamster food she stole a few days ago and/or got impregnated by some street rat. She is soooo fat. Like hamsters-in-the-Kia-commercials fat:
Unrelated: I promised my kids that the llamas would be nice to them if they were nice back. However last week one of the llamas hocked a BIG loogie in this girl's hair for no reason. It was hilarious. But I felt bad for her because it reeeeked.
(And in case you were wondering, I had to look up how to spell "hocked a loogie". I don't think I've actually ever seen it in print)
