METAIRIE, LA - SEPTEMBER 05: Kimberly Ledet, 24, cuddles her pet hamster after returning home and finding it alive September 5, 2005 in Metairie, Louisiana. Ledet evacuated before the hurricane with her four children, and didn't have room for the hamster cage in her car. A week after Hurricane Katrina hit, residents were allowed back to their houses in Metairie to collect possessions, but authorities are encouranging them not to stay as a massive recovery gets underway.

A hamster in England recently fell down a three-foot pipe that was too narrow to reach into.  But after six days, animal rescuers were able to save it by constructing a tiny ladder out of wire, so it could climb back up.

The RSPCA said animal welfare officer Alison Sparkes responded to a Bridgwater, Somerset, England, home after multiple attempts to rescue Jamie the hamster from the pipe failed.
