It all reminds me of the time my sister and I caught a racoon in the back yard to give my dad for his birthday! I'll tell that story tomarrow, and I have pictures to go with it.

My hamsters live outside in two cages on the back porch. I cover them up with a blanket to keep them warm. This morning I went outside to feed them and when I lifted up the blanket I noticed a foriegn rodent in the upper cage that Puff has to himself. (there are 9 hamsters in the other cage) Anyway I look into a cage which should contain one little siberian hamster that resembles a tiny snowball and I see a little black rodent looking back at me. I am not sure if it was a baby rat or an adult mouse but I scared the shit out of it. It zipped around the cage like a speedfiend. I tried to catch the little buger but it finally slipped through the bars of the cage and I chased it around the porch for a while before it eventually escaped. I probably looked really stupid. When I went back to get a better look at Puff it looked like his ear had been bitten. So I moved their cages higher up and left the blanket off until it got dark outside and have checked on him twice as much as usual.
