Hamster has set off on her own to live her best life in her brand new burrow. With great care, she decorates her new home. But while she is out gathering food, someone else stops by for a nap. What will happen when Hamster discovers a snake in her sanctuary? What will happen to her decor?! You'll just have to listen and find out.
