Chrissy Teigen and family recently brought home a hamster, and her hijinks have been entertaining all of Twitter ever since.
The hamster, whose name is Peanut Butter, took a little while to settle in as part of the family.
The day they brought Peanut Butter home, Chrissy tweeted:
"Luna and I bought a hamster today. Her name is peanut butter. John is not thrilled, which makes me love her more."
She has been developing her skills as an escape artist over the last few days.
Chrissy posted a slightly panicked tweet the first time Peanut Butter got out:

But Peanut Butter was found within a matter if hours.

Apparently there were people criticizing her choice of hamster enclosure, so she bought a better one.
I just bought her a two story glass condo with a hammock so please stop yelling at me— christine teigen (@christine teigen) 1552326191.0
It didn't arrive in time to thwart the next escape, though, as she got out again the very next day.
Oh my fuckin g the hamster is gone again— christine teigen (@christine teigen) 1552403624.0
Unlike her previous escape, it was more than a couple of hours before Peanut Butter was located this time.
Chrissy resorted to using safe traps suggested by fans on Twitter.

Pets can be a source of chaos in our lives, but they also enrich them. Life just wouldn't be the same without our furry, feathered, and scaly friends.
