Many people have lost their hamster at some point, and it is often a very stressful experience. The best thing to do if you’ve lost your hamster is to stop and take a deep breath. Once you’ve calmed down a little, try to retrace your steps. If you can’t remember where you were when you last saw your hamster, try to think of where he might be. If you have other pets in the house, check with them to see if they’ve seen or heard him. It’s a good idea to check in some unusual places, too, like under furniture, in boxes, on shelves, and in any small spaces where your hamster might find shelter.
