Nobody gets left behind in the Teigen-Legend household. 

Chrissy Teigen went to great lengths to save her family's hamster, Peanut Butter, after she escaped from her habitat and got stuck in a wall. Chrissy went so far as to chisel a hole in the Legends' multimillion-dollar Los Angeles mansion, eventually setting the beloved rodent free. 

"our hamster has been missing for 3 days," she captioned an Aug. 22 Instagram Story. "I heard faint scratching in the wall."

She shared video footage of herself—in a lavish floral bathrobe with white fluffy trim—investigating behind a curtain with a flashlight, along with some help from her friends. "maybe we are insane ????" she captioned another clip, adding, "NOT CRAZY" after they heard proof that Peanut Butter was in the wall.

"Listen!!!" Chrissy wrote, while they tried to find the hidden hamster. 

The cookbook author was seen on a step ladder poking holes in the wall and, later, holding a hammer as they tried to get to the bottom of things. She cut a piece out of the wall and said, "I CHISTLED A HOLE AND LOOK," as Peanut Butter's nose was seen poking in and out of the wooden hole.

Someone said aloud, "It's okay, Peanut Butter. We're coming." Chrissy held up seeds to the hole to try to coax Peanut Butter out, before holding up her plastic hamster ball to the hole, so the critter could scurry out to safety and into the ball. 

"AGGGGHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!" and "OMGAHHHHHH," the former model captioned clips of their rescue mission.

Once Peanut Butter was safe in Chrissy's arms, she and her friends broke out into laughter. 

This isn't the first hamster the family has lost, but lucky this time there was a happy ending. She and daughter Luna, 5, bought a hamster named Peanut Butter in March 2019, with Chrissy tweeting that husband John Legend "is not thrilled, which makes me love her more." However, she revealed last December that the original Peanut Butter had died, and they got a "New P. Butter" in time for Christmas.

Chrissy, who recently welcomed Basset Hound Pearl to the fam, shared this week's saga to her Instagram feed, writing, "rescue 911." Watch her supermom moment above.
