    I'm in my office which has a built in bookcase, and a Hamster Cage, and my son's Hamster (creatively named "Hammy").

    I plucked Hammy from his cage.

    He jumped from my hand and landed on my foot.

    Then he crawled into the woodwork of the bookcase.

    How do I retrieve the Fucking Hamster? (ALIVE)

    ****amputation is NOT an option****

    Really, just leave his cage door open, make sure the only food & water source is in the cage. You'll find him in there eventually and just close the door.

    Alive. I need Hammy to be living AFTER he is caught.

    I thought about that sticky paper stuff, but am afraid that I'd amputate his feet when I pulled him off......then I thought, it might be kinda cool to have a foot-less hamster....sorta like a Tribble.

    Unless you have a cat. Then it could take forever.

    Yep. That's exactly right.

    Put food and water in the open cage and close off the room. Make sure nobody enters or exits overnight, and you'll likely find Hammy running on his wheel in the morning.

    That's what happened with our Robovorski Dwarf Hamster when he got out the first week he came to live with us. We (not so creatively) named him Mick. We're Irish. ;)

    Best wishes to you and Hammy...

    We have a cat, 2 dogs and 1 dwarf hamster.

    Only took 24 hours with this technique.

    Not sure why Hammy is giving his family such a hard time! :eusa_eh:

    I guess I'll continue filling his food and water for a couple of weeks, but then the little shit's on his own.:evil:

    He's probably holed up in one of your books for the winter.
