I lost my dwarf hamster sometime yesterday but I didn't know until today. Help!!! I looked around my bedroom and can't find him. I've also looked into the other rooms and living and dining room. I know that they are nocturnal and that the best shot is at night time but I hope he isn't dead. The problem is he most likely is sleeping in a dark area thus making it harder. When my gerbils escaped they made lots of noises and pooped everywhere thus making them easier to find. They also ran around so we were able to find them. My hamster, named Mr.Pepper doesn't poop as much and is very quiet. He also doesn't chew.
