I worked a late shift on Wednesday, planning to do childcare for our Friends meeting. No kids came (which was just as well, b/c we forgot to book the room!) but I got a lot of work done in the quiet evening.
On Thursday Tumtum, the more active and alpha of our two hamsters, chewed through the wire netting and took off. We barely caught Nutmeg as he followed his friend to freedom. After about 8 hours of intensive activity (including multiple children searching the library repeatedly), he was discovered by a staff member making a break for the lobby and ultimate freedom (and death) and recaptured. Tumtum and Nutmeg are now sulking in "prison", i.e. their old cage, until the new lid comes for their aquarium.
