A little hamster has been reunited with his owner after wandering the streets of Looe for FOUR days.

The pet went missing and his owner left treats all around the house thinking he was still inside.

But he was actually on a big adventure all around the town!

He was found by Natalia who took him in and gave him food and water.

She shared his story on social media and luckily managed to track down his owner.

The little guy is now safely back home... we love a happy ending!

A little hamster got lost and wandered the streets of Looe for four days before being found and reunited with his owner

"It was a lady's dog on the street that spotted him first and the lady thought it was a rat, when I bent down to look I could see it was a hamster so I took him home and gave him some water and food and started advertising on the FB groups.

"Luckily he was back with his owner the same night, he had been missing for four days and the girl who lost him had been leaving treats all over her house thinking he was still in the house and unaware he was wondering the streets all this time.

"I'm so pleased he's back home safely now."
