Father’s Adorable Concern for Daughter’s Missing Hamster Makes Internet Swoon

 

Chester, Steph Veerman’s beloved hamster, went missing this week and her father, Daniel Veerman, adorably panicked when he realized he had lost his daughter’s favorite pet. His panic was then chronicled by his daughter Steph and it made for one of the cutest interactions. 

 

According to the news outlet the New York Post, the hamster “escaped while he was cleaning the critter’s cage.” After Chester escaped, it was all Daniel could think about, promptly having an anxiety attack about it. 

 

Steph, who he was texting apologies to, took a snapshot of their conversation and it showed just how cute her dad was. 

 

At first, Steph was surprised to receive a message from her father that there was an emergency. Her father asked her to call immediately. Daniel just goes on to apologize and assure that he is “looking everywhere.”

“I’m so wicked sorry I’ll keep looking all day,” the frazzled dad added. “I’m never going to forgive myself if he doesn’t come back.” 

 

Steph was already sensing the panic in her father, so she tried her best to calm him down. Her father was also saying that he would devote his whole day to finding the little hamster, and that he would skip work just to make sure that he finds him. Steph assured him that he doesn’t have to sacrifice work as Chester is just a hamster and he is a lawyer. 

 

The dad still valiantly found ingenious ways to try and find the hamster, setting a small arc of flour on the floor beside the hamster’s food bowl so that the powder would let him “see his [Chester’s] footsteps if he comes to get the food.”

Things look up fairly quickly, of course, and the exasperated father reports back to Steph that the little guy had merely been burrowed in his cage the whole time. The conversation then hilariously ended with Daniel stating that the whole ordeal had been “the most stressful day” in his life since he took the bar exam, which denizens of Twitter simultaneously found funny and sweet.
