#10920 - 10/21/03 12:18 PM HELP!!!

one of my babies just escaped into the wall by the heater. I was getting ready to move him from the bonding pouch to the cage, and he jumped and skuttled off into the wall. I know he is right by the opening because I can hear him, but I can't get to him. I put some food and his pouch by the opening, is there anything else I can do? or should I just wait and pray?

#10921 - 10/21/03 01:14 PM Re: HELP!!! [Re: ]

Turn off the gas or electricity that the heater is powered by. dust some flour by all ducts to detect footprints and make sure he is still around.yes, set out a pouch and food. set these out every vent or other place he could get out of the wall.

you will need a treat he can't resist and a sound he can't stand. example: my gliders love candy canes and hate the sound of crumpling paper. go around space by space and make the sound at the wall. be very still and listen for any sounds, scraping clawlike scuttling. then if you hear any, wave the treat around, call his name if he normally likes that, and hopefully he will come to you.

good luck! be patient and most of all, safe. take 100 times more safety precautions than you usually would, regarding open doors, other pets, and standing water.

let us know how it is going. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/worried2.gif" alt="" />

That happened to me just a few days ago, only, he went behind the fridge. I unplugged the fridge, and if you see him, don't be afraid to snatch him. I was so afraid my baby would get hurt, I just snatched him and put him in his pouch. Good luck with that! I'll pray for you. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/worried2.gif" alt="" />

my glider is back, safe and sound in the cage!! After hiding out for 2 hours, I managed to somehow chase him back into the cage. Boy is that a relief!! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/party.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/muchlove.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/littleglider.gif" alt="" />
