From: GUEST,Corridus

Day 350: I am still stuck in this hellhole. The Enormous One put more food in last night...as usual. There is now enough stored food in here to last, I calculate, three and one-half hamster lifetimes. I am getting overweight, because there is nothing to do but eat, sleep, and run on The Wheel. At first I thought The Wheel was a magic portal out to The World At Large, but I was bitterly disappointed. I thought that if I ran fast enough to reach light speed I would be transported by The Wheel into another dimension...a place of unlimited freedom and verdant meadows filled with growing things.

No such luck. No matter how fast I ran, nothing changed. I still run on The Wheel from time to time, but I expect nothing from it. My hopes are dead. I only do it to get revenge on the Enormous One at night, because the huge brute sleeps after dark. (A very unnatural habit!) And The Wheel squeaks! This drives him to distraction, and it provides me with a satisfying retaliation for the daily racket he makes that drives me mad while I am trying to sleep.

The Smaller Monster has ceased bothering me since I bit his paw severely, but he pesters me now and then by poking me with a straw when I am attempting to sleep. If I ever get out I will track him down and exact a terrible revenge, before escaping forever from The Castle.

The bars appear to be as impregnable as over, but attacking them gives me something to focus on. I have removed most of the paint from the lower ones, but they are made out of a very hard, shiny substance that I cannot seem to bite into.

If I didn't know better, I would think this was some terrible nightmare, but it is all too real.

I am trapped and alone.

It's Day 350 and my life is at least 1/3 over.

I have a plan. On Day 351 I shall make a break for freedom when the Enormous One opens the door to put in more food. It will require speed and perfect timing.

I am ready to succeed or die in this attempt. It's him or me this time.

Corridus

Corridus, does he make it out? What happens then? Does he find he can't hack it in the 'real' world and desperately scrabble his tiny little toenails to bleeding stumps in a tragic and futile effort to regain his safe haven, only to be found belly-up the next morning outside his 'prison' by his bewildered 'captor', who finds the following words scrawled in blood on the clear plexiglass - "I was wrong..."

Or maybe he just heads on down to the Krispy Kreme.

Maybe he heads on down to the Krispy Kreme and meets up with the aliens, who recruit him for dangerous but heroic missions exploring The Dark Orifice...

Day 351: The die is cast! I made my break this morning, at an ungodly hour, but that's when the Monsters choose to get up...in broad daylight. The Enormous One came as usual to dump a half ton of food in my cage. He was a bit dopey (what else is new?) because he hadn't been up for long. So much the better. I was ready for action. As he opened the cage door I sprang onto his hideous paw and scrambled down his disgusting pink arm. He uttered a surprised bellow and reared back as I ran deeper inside the cloth covering these creatures swaddle themselves in. He also spilled about a year's supply of food all over the floor. I heard it go. I will come back for it after dark, because I am going to need an emergency supply for later.

How can I possibly describe the chaotic events which followed? Well, I'll try. As I burrowed farther down the tube-like shroud around his apparently endless arm he leaped around, yelling obscenities in a thundering voice. Well, I assume they were obscenities, at any rate, from the tone of them. He made a series of clumsy grabs with his free paw, but I evaded them. I suddenly reached an enormous expanse of reeking flesh which I can only assume was his back, as he continued to yell and crash around. It was extremely disorienting.

Then he got an idea, it seems, and began to rip off his upper coverings to expose me. I had to move fast. I headed down, and found myself among his lower coverings. The stench of him was growing even worse, but I gritted my teeth and struggled on. At this point he shoved an immense, grasping paw in after me and almost had me, but I saw it coming, and dodged. I then delivered a nasty bite to the nearest part of him I could find...a huge tubelike appendange flanked by two baglike, hairy masses. The atrocious shriek he uttered when I did this nearly short-circuited every nerve in my system. It was like hearing the world explode.

Evidently I had discovered a vital spot, because he completely lost his balance at this point, and fell down what I think must have been a flight of stairs. It was horrific, like going through an avalanche combined with an earthquake. The instant he came to rest I scrambled out an opening and found myself on a large flat expanse of coloured squares. I made a beeline for the corner, where I might take refuge under an immense white, square thing.

The Enormous One was back on his feet in an instant, and pursued me, yelling dire threats. I scrambled under the white thing, and found myself engulfed in a filthy mass of dust, hair, and God knows what else that was coverning the floor. I almost gagged, but pressed on. There had to be a way out.

The Enormous One continued bellowing, and then siezed upon the white thing and began dragging it by main force away from the wall. I ran back under it. He dragged it farther yet, and I followed. Then I suddenly spotted an aperture in the floor...some kind of dusty tunnel, sheathed in more of the hard, shiny stuff. I plunged into the welcoming darkness within, fell down a steep incline and landed on a pile of debris at the bottom.

At this point there arose a hideous crash from above. Evidently the Enormous One had turned the white thing over completely in his efforts to get at me. And that was not all. The She-Monster was now in the picture, screaming at the Enormous One. It sounded like they were having a quarrel to me, which is not all that unusual, but this time it was bad.

I siezed the opportunity to slip away down the tunnel, which proved to be very long indeed, and full of dust and dead insects. At some length I found myself peering out of a sort of paneled peephole with long slits in it...at another cavernous room in the Castle. I had never seen this room before. It was full of the usual incomprehensible lot of stuff. Monsters like collecting junk and surrounding themselves with it. When they finally die, other Monsters come and haul the junk away. That's what I've heard, anyway.

As I write this, I am stopping for a much-needed breather. It is clear that these tunnels form some sort of system of secret passageways which lead all over the Castle, and I am going to explore them thoroughly. Then I will go back and get some food when the coast is clear. And water. I will need water. Sooner or later the Monsters will sleep, and that's when I make my move.

Test subject one escaped this morning. Professor Hannity was very cross with me. Not only did I let the subject get away but I damaged some expensive equipment trying to get it back. It doesn't matter that the damn thing bit me on my penis (note to self: get tetanus shot!) and that I fell down a flight of stairs nearly breaking my frickin' skull. I told her to get a better feeding system than that! I think he ended up in the air vents. I hope they researched this building a little better than I think they did otherwise there's going to be a hell of a stink if he gets outside. Meanwhile I'll keep searching for him, that and watching for hair and teeth growth, okay I know "spiderman" isn't real but I feel a little more rodent like with each passing moment.

New York (AP)

Officials have confirmed that a rodent known as 'Hammy' escaped this evening from a minimum-security facility in Manhattan. Probationary agents, who reportedly were seeking to obtain Hammy's cooperation in an investigation of what happens when a hamster is allowed free run of a Brio train set, lost sight of the furry felon when he ducked under a radiator cover. Senior officials who do not care if they are named, missy, have confirmed that their subordinates' actions in removing Hammy from his usual place of confinement and transporting him across the apartment without authorization will result in severe disciplinary proceedings such as not reading a chapter of Little House on the Prairie tonight and maybe even tomorrow night.

A high-level administration official was called away from reading knitting blogs and talking on the telephone to personally oversee the stakeout of Hammy's hideout. After a special operations unit removed the radiator cover, the crime scene was strewn with sunflower seeds, and agents settled in with flashlights and low-calorie beers for a long night.

Authorities credit the eventual capture of Hammy, who had eluded a cardboard roadblock set up outside the radiator and holed up in a nearby closet containing men's shoes and neckties going back to the mid-80s, to information provided by an anonymous informant.

Note: This is evidently a different hamster. It's not Corridus. However, some of the details of this case are very intriguing!

MEEOW! Hurrah! The small creature "escaped" this morning! It was exciting! The big white box where the humans keep my milk got turned over. The creature's under the floor somewhere. I can hear it. I've looked and looked and can't find any openings big enough for a cat to crawl through, but that's okay. I'm a cat. I'm patient. The creature can't stay down there forever. Just wait until it shows its face.

Day 353: I have had a very narrow escape and am facing great difficulties. Yesterday was so traumatic that I neglected to make my journal entry. I had set out to thoroughly explore the maze of tunnels, all of which were constructed of the smooth, impermiable material I have described before. The tunnels led to various lookout spots facing into vast rooms full of junk, as I had noted before. The Castle has many of these rooms. Imagine my horror when I found the hideous countenance of The Cat staring fixedly back at me through the barred window that covers the tunnel opening!!! I am well acquainted with The Cat. It has had evil intentions towards me ever since I can remember. When we first met it went around and around The Cage, trying to find a way in. I stayed well back from the bars and clicked my teeth as a warning. The Cat pawed viciously at The Cage but could not get in. All the time it watched me fixedly with its huge eyes! Well, after a few days of that The Cat decided to just ignore me, but I know what it was really up to. It was waiting for a golden opportunity to destroy me, whenever it got the chance.

The Cat has now realized that I am free. It intends to hunt me down remorselessly. When I crawled what seemed like a long distance, and peered into another giant room through another barred window, there it was again! Staring at me! This is not good. The Cat has very good hearing and it is following me about on the outside.

Knowing this, I determined to plunge deep into the bowels of the tunnel system, where The Cat could not follow. I went down. Presently I found myself at a steeply inclined portion that led into who knows where. I slid over the edge and consigned my fate to the paws of destiny. There followed a dizzying tumble into the gulf, a bounce, another slide, and I fetched up, shaken but whole at the bottom of another long straigtaway. It was very dusty, and I was growing increasingly thirsty.

As I moved forward I heard strange noises, as of some enormous breathing leviathan straining at its labours, and a hot breeze came flowing down the tunnel. At length I stood before a vertical drop with a torrent of hot air pouring forth from it. As I looked down I saw with horror what could only have been the very FIRES OF HELL raging at the bottom of the shaft!!! Incredible as it seems, The Castle rests upon the Fiery Pit itself!

I scrambled away in haste, fearing the approach of Satan's Imps, who might drag me down, and the hot wind beat at my tender heiny. I stumbled blindly into a tunnel that led to the left and slightly upward, then angled to the right. It ended at another barred window. Through this window I could see a dark and dirty room that was not very large by Monster standards. The Cat was nowhere in sight, and the door was closed.

As I write this, I am pondering my next move. I must escape these tunnels or die. I must find water and food. I have but two choices...either get past one of these window/gratings or go all the way back to the place where I first entered the tunnels. Either choice is difficult. The gratings are very tough. As for the way back, it leads up some vertical shafts, and I doubt that I can climb this shiny stuff well enough to make it.

This may be my final entry if I don't find a way out soon.

Day 353 - Addendum:

I have found food! After determining that the barred opening into the small dark room was as impermeable as all other such openings and that the room was a dead end, I turned around to make my way back up the tunnel. There, about two feet into the tunnel, sat a small plastic bag which I had not noticed before. I gave it a cautious sniff and then began to gnaw a small hole in it. When I had gained access to the substance inside the bag I cautiously sampled a bit of it and found it to be vegetable matter of a sort that seemed to be edible. It had a fair number of seeds in it which were quite tasty and the rest of it wasn't bad. It wasn't Hartz Mountain, but it was food. For some reason unknown to me some of the food had been separated out and stored in tubes constructed from a variety of the material that The Monsters use to cover the bottom of The Cage.

The food has given me unexpected vigor. In fact, I believe I feel better than I've ever felt before. I think I'll go find The Cat and give it a piece of my mind!

Wait! Light! Someone just turned on a light in the little room! And what's that sound? A scratching noise coming from the bars over the opening! Look! The bars just fell away from the opening! And here comes... Yes! It's a Monster's paw! A Monster paw reaching for the plastic bag with the food in it! Now the paw pulls the bag out of the tunnel and I hear a Monster voice say, "What the hell! Something's got into my stash and eaten about half of it!"

It's now or never! While the Monster is in obvious distress over my having eaten some of its food I make a dash down the tunnel and leap through the opening into the room! Hooray! I'm out of the tunnel!

Day 353 - Further addendum:

This has been a stimulating and really quite incredible experience. The foolish Monster whose food I ate was so distracted that it did not see me make my escape from the tunnel. I will try to describe the Monster as best I can. It was tremendously tall, like all Monsters, and had an unkempt appearance. Its cloth coverings were very messy looking, not nearly as neat as those on the Enormous One. It had long, shaggy, dirty blonde hair in what is, I believe, normally called a "mullet" cut, along with a mustache and a few days growth of chin stubble. An astoundingly ugly sight!

As the Monster complained loudly about the missing food a She-Monster came in the room. Not my She-Monster, another one. It was wearing fairly similar cloths, with the knees ripped out of the lower ones, and had even longer hair, but not face hair. She-Monsters don't normally have facial hair. At least, not much.

I was so fascinated with the colors in the room that I just stood there for the next few minutes...or hours...and studied them. I have no idea why. I've never done that before. During those minutes...or hours...the Monsters talked loudly for a while about the missing food. Then they talked about money. Then they decided to go out and get something to eat. Good! In all this time they never noticed me...thank goodness! They appear to be very stupid, these two.

Anyway, they finally left and I finally decided that the colors on the walls were perfect just as they were and I started looking for water. As luck would have it, I found a bird cage with a budgie in it. His name is Toto. I have talked to him a little, and he is a cheerful sort. He let me drink from his water dish, which I could just get my tongue to by putting it between the bars on his cage. I took a good drink and I feel much better even than before, but I'm getting sleepy.

Toto says that these two Monsters don't have the brains of a bird between them, but they are basically harmless...and there is no cat. Bravo! Toto hates cats. We are in absolute agreement on that. He has also no objections if I eat some of his seeds! There's a whole box of them on the floor. Hooray! But now I need a nap. I am going to find a nice, safe place underneath something and sleep for at least 12 hours.

If he was thirsty before, just wait 'til he wakes up. I hope he can't get at the stash again, or it might be days, weeks, even months before he decides to move on. I'm curious - I wonder if he has some vague destination in mind - something perhaps suggested by hamster mythology he absorbed with his hamster mother's milk - or if he is completely free of preconceived ideas and is open to where ever fortune takes him. I hope he is not too suggestible (sp?) and that silly bird doesn't fill up his little head with fantastic ideas about some great Endless Field of Sunflowers or other such birdy nonsense.

I see an obituary if he gets near that stash again. Toto is just leading him on. Next time he's stoned out of his little tiny gourd Toto is going to tell him that he can fly if he'd only try. Toto is evil! What's a poor hampster lover to do?

Maybe Corridus really isn't a hamster but a flying squirrel. Big people are pretty dumb.

I'm sure anything a squirrel can do a hampster can do! Let's not be species bigots now.

after all - there are even *shudder* snakes that can "fly" - surely a clever mammal can do what one of them cold-blooded slytherin thingammies can!

Day 354: So far so good. I slept well. Now I am feeling absolutely ravenous. Good thing there is a lot of birdseed here. The two Monsters came back, but have not noticed me at all. They engaged in some very peculiar behaviour last night. I'm not sure what they were doing, but it went on for quite a while. They also left some peculiar food lying around half-eaten. Pizza, it's called. I tried some. The crust is nice to nibble on, but the filling is too greasy for my taste and way too spicy. I'm surprised they can live eating stuff like that.

The mullet-headed Monster knows about the Enormous One. The Enormous One is called Bill. Mullet-Head doesn't like Bill one bit, because Bill keeps bugging him about money. The She-Monster I will call "No-Knees", because of her ripped jeans (lower coverings) which are missing the knees.

I am going to wait for Mullet-Head and No-Knees to leave and then explore this place from end to end. There is almost nothing that makes a hamster as happy as exploring new territory!
