    I stumbled upon her tonight. After staring at her little home and thinking "she'd usually be wheeler-cizing right about now".

    Anywho, here's some very bad quality pictures of the little adventurer upon her return. We filled her food bowl up, and she shoveled half of it (including a quarter piece of cucumber slice) into her pouches, and has held it there for almost an hour now.

    Stuffing her hungry face (she hadn't eaten in three days and even came back with a small scab on her nose, and she'd obviously lost some weight, we could feel her ribs and spine way too much).

    See her full pouches? Hehe

    Much better view.

    Again, sorry for the photo quality, these were taken with a sidekick three phone, since I somehow forgot my camera.

    Have to say, I'm relieved she's back!

    *These are older photos, before she was MIA for three days, and much fatter too! Also, better quality, taken with my 8 megapixel camera.*

    Animals this cute should not be left alone wandering around under boxes and furniture, getting scrapes and being covered in dust bunnies!

    HURRAY--funny that a thing that small could be located, and safely returned! I was amazed when my kids hamster was missing for 3 weeks, and we found her--alive, fat, and fine! So glad you have her back.:)

    Thanks everyone! I'm glad she's safe and sound. I would've posted a better post at first had it not been so late.

    We owed the dog a big apology, I've been ignoring her for three days thinking shed eaten her. Doh!

    Aww, I'm glad you found her. I remember when I was little and I lost my hamster...I was really sad.

    We noticed today that the food she stufed in her pouches is still there, just as full if not fuller.
    I'm a little worried, is it possible for them to put so much food in that they can get it out? Are we just being too worried?
    She usually buries her food underneath where she sleeps and guards it, but she hasn't even gotten any out of 'storage'.


    :(?

    Update: She still hasn't gotten rid of all that food, and she just shoved MORE in there! Ugh.
    Her cheeks got stuck when she tried to get into her new wheel, which I bought the largest size.

    Anyone have any experience with THIS?!

    She emptied them for about an hour, then shoveled back in what she took out. She's acting very strange tonight, such as the pouch stuffing, and the fact that she is sleeping on top of her napkins curled in a ball, when usually, she diges a hole, rips them up and pulls them over her with her head sticking out, like covers.
