close call.

After coming home from doing some 31 Flavors-style, report card celebrating last night, Avery found her hamster cage like this...
She had left the doors OPEN. Understand we had been gone for 2 hours. She screamed, "My hamster got OUT!" We all went into immediate excavation mode. Davin grabbed the flashlights and started yanking everything out from under the beds. Hunter logged onto Google and typed in "How to catch a hamster"and started yelling out things like, "put granola bars all over the house" and "set up a trap!" I went running room to room reminding everyone to "watch where you step." We looked everywhere...
Of course Dusan was the only one who remained calm. He heard scratching between the refrigerator and the cabinet in the kitchen. We set out some bait...and lucky for us, Coffee Cinderella, aka "Hammy", was hungry.
I am sure it won't be the last time. Here is one happy and very relieved 5 year old.
