This is the adorable picture drawn by a young girl of her lost pet hamster that she stuck to a pole in the hope of retrieving it.
Angela’s pet golden hamster went missing in the town of Hougang in Singapore on 25th May.
She resolved to make a lost-pet flyer in the hope of finding the female rodent. However, she hit a stumbling block when she realised she did not have a printer at her home.
Undeterred, she decided to draw its likeness instead, and she laminated the resulting A4 poster and affixed it to a pole in a street near her home.
Along with the cute, coloured drawing, she included her phone number, her address and even the hamster’s length of “about 17 cm” (6.7 in).
Angela’s hamster’s name is Jie Jie (older sister) and it is one year old. It reportedly went missing after chewing its way out of its home.
In the wake of its disappearance, Angela told news site Mothership.sg that “a few kind people” had promised to help her to track it down.
She said: “Even if I can’t find it, there’s a lady who helped post the lost hamster (poster) on Facebook and an uncle who asked me about rehoming some hamsters that I would really like to thank.”
When asked as to what she plans to tell her pet when she is once again reunited with it, Angela replied: “Where have you been, you naughty hamster?”
The golden hamster or Syrian hamster is naturally found in northern Syria and southern Turkey. It is a vulnerable species.
