A woman is looking for her pet hamster that went missing at Ghim Moh Market and Food Centre on Wednesday (June 14).

Stomper Joyce said the dwarf hamster, named Gu Niang, got lost after it "jumped off from her lap and slipped down" while she was seated at the hawker centre.

Gu Niang is two and a half years old.

Hamsters have an average lifespan of two to three years and are considered elderly from around 18 months onwards.

Joyce told Stomp: "Gu Niang has a cataract on her right eye. Thus, she cannot see properly and clearly. She needs a special diet and special care too due to her old age.

"According to the K.K.Beans stallowner, two men in their thirties who were wearing orange T-shirts saw and picked my hamster up."

Joyce is appealing for Gu Niang's safe return and added: "Your cooperation is greatly appreciated. A token of appreciation will be given. Thank you."
