I was playing a game with The Little Kid, when I noticed our schnauzer staring. Normally, Molly only stares if there is a hamster running loose to stare at. I checked the hamster enclosure… no hamster. No open door, either. Shoulda called her “Houdini”.
Looked under the entertainment center where Molly had been staring. Sure enough, there was Mousey.
Calling Mousey had little effect. She stared at the flashlight in my hand. She was unphased by her favorite treat, the rat kibble.
I had to move the entertainment center and grab her before she ran off. Safely scooped up and returned to the hamster encloser, I rechecked for open escape routes.
There were none.
