Ignore dad

Emily: Can I keep hamsters in my room dad?
Me: No. We have 3 cats, two of which (as you well know) are predators
Emily: It's OK, I'll keep my door shut
Me: No. It's a stupid idea, it's asking for trouble.
SWMBO: It'll be OK, you worry too much.
Emily: It'll be OK Dad.

That was about a month ago. They gave been driving me nuts as her bedroom is above our lounge and when they were on the wheel it made a racket.

Just heard a thump from upstairs. That's strange, Emily is not here ... that sound like a cat hitting the floor ...

Gets upstairs to find one of the tunnel sections prized off the side of the cage and Bella, a master hunter/killer cat on the cabinet and his brother Monty underneath.

One hamster missing.

Why the F**K does no one listen to me?

haha oh dear. I suspect either dead hamster or hamster managed to escape the claws and teeth of your lions and is hiding somewhere. 


If the latter remove the cats and shut the door. Get a bucket and put some hamster food in the bottom with a hamster ladder/platform it can climb up going up to the bucket hammie will eventually come out of hiding and head to the food bucket dive straight in and not be able to get back out. One captured hamster. 


also if hamster is alive i might recommend a wooden stand alone wheel. They make far less noise than the plastic ones if that is what you have now. 


Hope hammie is still ok.

      epic24 seems so long ago and I haven't been back since. Having taken the 3v3 Rocket League tournament, I'm hungry for more.
      And so...
      I have plans to return to epic27 with a new team behind me! I am incredibly excited as epic24 was my first taste of a LAN and I loved every minute of it. It's completely worth the 700 miles round trip and I'm ready to do it all over again!
