    Oh that's such good news. I'm so pleased he decided to brave the slipper and be found! Excellent. X

    Lucky! Have you put him back in the same cage and did you know how he escaped?

    Yes, I can't remember the dimensions, but in the loft I have a Gabber Rex. I think they are rare as hens' teeth these days though.

    Absolutely not. I am leaving him in the carrier until I can set up a temporary safe but too small for long term use cage.

    I can only assume that his escape was made by him squeezing between the bars. He has some bald patches on his back which might have happened when he made his bid for freedom. He has no injuries though, thank goodness.

    The aviary cages I have for the chipmunks have bar spacing at 1cm, which is only just ok for adult chippies (sold as finch aviaries) but is the smallest available on commercial cages. Any deviation on the bars means they can escape eg from a waterbottle nozzle. I have put some much smaller mesh panels on any stretches that I can reasonably do (from Wickes) - mainly to stop the cats getting their claws & paws in when I had to split up the colony and had to use narrower cages. It more than doubled the cost of the cages, though, and is only practical on large rectangular areas - not something I would recommend for complicated shapes like Fearghal's.

    I hope you find some appropriate housing for him soon. Maybe keep the carrier inside his old castle until then? It at least provides some level of extra security in the short-term.
