Great idea. I used a shoe box. Taped the top on and cut a hole in the side. Then I made a handle out of the packing tape - a loop that I could easily grab if she was inside. left a trail of food to the hole and then put more food deeper inside the box. A few minutes ago, I thought heard something . . . she was 1/2 inside the box, but far enough away from the fridge that I could slide the 'pool noodle' that I was using to block her retreat to the fridge. (it fits perfectly, btw, if anyone else ever needs to block the fridge). She didn't hear me until I was right on top of her; she backed out of the box and looked at me. Before she knew it, she was caught. I am so relieved I cannot tell you. The escape was totally my fault (I left her enclosure door open) so I was just beating myself up. Now she's cleaned up and back in her very nice house with a big bowl of feed and water and her heat lamp.
