  • Uh oh! I haven't, but good luck! Crabs like to climb and burrow, try looking for anyplace they could get into to hide, like piles of clothes or even a hole in the mattress. Put out some water for them, maybe you'll get lucky and find one when he gets thirsty!

  • Sorry, but that's pretty funny. Poor hermit crabs. We lost our ferret one time. Well, kind of. We figured out she was stuck in the couch and we couldn't get her out for a few hours. We ended up having to cut the fabric on the bottoms of the couch to let her out.

  • We were painting the rooms in our house and my cat crawled in the furnace ducts and to make matters worse, she's deaf and I was pregnant and freaking out - you could hear here crying in there but couldn't reach or find her - luckily my husband grabbed a flashlight while I went outside and cried and got her out for me..ugh

  • I lost my hermit and my hamster in my house when I was little. Never found the hermit but found the hamster!

    I lose my cats alot in my home, well not really lose, they just hide really well. I always call me DH freaking out to see if he has seen them but I usually find them by the end of the day in weird places.

  • I lost a cat about 10 years ago and never found her, I lost a snake when I was a kid--found him and he was hungry after being burried for a week under toys. I wish you luck finding those little guys.

  • No, but I was never allowed to have a hamster growing up because the neighbor's kids let all 4 of theirs escape and get into the walls.
