Bummed. Missing.
My 3 y/o West Langtry female has been missing for 7 days now. My fault. I was handling her, she got snuggled up in my shirt sleeve and I fell asleep. I woke up 2 hours later, walked up stairs like a zombie and collapsed into bed. The next day, I noticed that the her enclosure was open and I realized that I never put her back.
I don't know if she went gallivanting while I was sleeping on the first floor or if I stumbled upstairs with her still in my shirt.


Stupid.

I've been turning this house upside down for a week. She ate 3 days prior and the house is starting to warm up here in GA.

I don't even know what floor she is on. 2 stories over a basement.
The house was 68deg when she got loose and the basement would have been about 60deg. Now the house is warm and the basement is about 62.

I've done all I can think of so far. I disassemble an entire floor at least once per day. With so many places to hide, I can't imagine that she wouldn't be in any of them. Can she really get through anything that she can get her head through?

I've moved every appliance and almost every piece of furniture. Have opened up the bottoms of couches. I've laid flour, have heating pads out with hides.

I kinda hope that she finds her way outside so that she does not dehydrate or starve.

Any tips would be appreciated.

Thanks
