Chloe on the lam again!

For the third time in her little rodent life, Chloe broke out of her little residence and explored the larger house. She pushed open the front gate again, then spent at least 8 hours roaming the downstairs, presumably sleeping behind the entertainment center. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw her appear between speaker and furniture, so I leaped up and grabbed her, then returned her to her proper home... this time with a big paper clamp acting as a front-door lock.

Within five mintues, she had stuffed an entire bowl of food into her cheek pockets, rendering her virtually too wide to fit through her tube into her upstairs bedroom.

Hamsters.
