McNutty in the house!

Quick update on Franklin McNutty, the escape artist hamster.  I came home early from work on Thursday and opened the door to the room he was confined in and there he was!!  He was just kind of walking around like "welcome to my room".  I scooped him up and got him back in his cage where he drank a ton of water, stuffed his little cheeks and promptly passed the F out.  Poor little guy!  He's lost weight (probably all the running around hiding from me) but otherwise seemed to be really healthy.  After I got him secured, I ran around like a crazy person telling the dog that her buddy was found.  The dog, having no idea what was going on got really excited because I was excited and jumped around the house with me.  It was a good day!

Mr. Franklin McNutty

Our hamster is missing and I'm seriously stressed about it.  It's been 4 days and I don't know how long he can survive out in the wild of the bedroom that I use as an extension of my closet.  It's gotten a little crazy.  I have his food out, his water bottle accessible, his ball open and waiting and an Easter basket with fake grass for him in case he wants to snuggle up for a little nap.  I have the room cordoned off and I know he's still in there because he's been eating the food I leave out. I think the cats suspect that something is up too.  They aren't allowed in that room because of Franklin but lately they have just been sitting by the door and I'm afraid they are going to blow my cover.  See, I haven't told my husband that Franklin is missing yet.  I was hoping to just find him and then tell it to him after the fact as a funny story.  What will not be funny is if he finds out and then proceeds to tear apart the bedroom piece by piece!  That is exactly what will happen if he finds out too so I'm trying to keep it on the DL for now and tempt him out with carrots and treats.  Keep your fingers crossed for a swift recovery of Mr. Franklin McNutty!

I realize that I have said over and over taht I am going to post more.  Honestly that is my intention, but lately I have been having some serious struggles with depression.  It comes and goes and right now it's like a huge weight on my chest, it's hard to breathe and I feel very small right now.  I know this won't last forever and I know that it will get better.  I know all this but I'm still just having a rough time.  Please bare with me, it'll get better, I just know it will.
