High-Beady-Eye-Factor*, cancelled out by roundness and paws up!

Hamuhamu_customThanks to Jacob over at BabyAnimalz.com.*BEF fo’ short, yo.



  1. He looks like an after-workout power snack for your previous post “eye of the tiger”..still cute though. I LOVE THIS SITE and hate my heterosexual self for it. Do you know I am now a cute addict?..gah…How can I ever listen to my System of a down CD’s again..

  2. I just had a _great_ idea! I should have called this post “Scooby Snack”. Next time, dammit!

    Oh, and please don’t stop System of a Down—the Hamster/SoaD combo is unstoppable!


  3. Wah! Too cute!
    I’m a sucker for beady eyes, actually. I think well-placed beady eyes rate high on the cuteness chart. My cuteness chart, at least. ^o^

  4. look at its lil fingers aweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

  5. It is soooooooooooooooooooo…… cuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuttttttttteeeeeeeeee…..I feel like hugging him

  6. This is a really cute hamster.
    I’m a really cute rabbit. I probably don’t weigh much more than this guy!

  7. OK that is the cutest little ball of fluff ever.

  8. Dustbunny says:

    There’s gotta be a mathematical formula for this: PU (Paws Up) + Fluffiness (-BEF) (Beady Eyes Factor) = Cuteness to the 2nd power ?? Now my head hurts. Going off to watch cartoons.

  9. Lilorfnannie says:

    The Cuteness here keeps me sane. Please never, never, ever stop.

  10. I can’t believe I can actually envision myself kissing a hamster.

  11. Must refrain from getting a hamster, must refrain. I just love those little balls of fluff! They are just too cute! I had one once that got to fat to go through his habitrail tube = 0

  12. I dunno, I think those are the “Cute”-type of beady eyes, as opposed to the “Nasty”-type like one gets with feral rats or politicians…

    Either way, I’m totally melting in my seat here. And my husband just went “AAAAWWW!!” too!


  13. what sort of special hammie astroturf is that?! i don’t think i agree with this whole BEF school of thought. those sweet little eyes are more like little ink drops of soul-searching adorableness. in my humble opinion.

  14. Awww he’s clasping his hands with glee at his little ‘rolling about on the floor escapade’. What a sweetie. I love hamsters but could never have one because they don’t last long poor little critters *sob, sob*

  15. Cute! So cute! Awww! *passes out*

  16. he is! he is! he’s clasping his little paws in glee!! “look at me, i am SO freakin’ cute. uh huh”

  17. those toes do me right in…. this little piggy went to market, this little piggy stayed home…….and this little piggy went weeeweeeeweeeweee all the way home!

  18. Yes, the beady-eyed factor is definitely a plus here for this, er, Scooby snack.

  19. is it bad that i just want to squeeeezzze it really hard? that level of cuteness is criminal.

  20. that babyanimalz site is hilarious. i love that it has a “4,000-year-old Mongolian” ode to cuteness and cute baby animal sounds acquired by NASA. the story in response to haterz is especially funny.

  26. Hehehe, I’m rubbing his belly : ) . . .soooo soft and mushy!

  27. tigerlily says:

    Now that is the embodiment of cuteness! It’s little hands clasped just begging to be “acutified” “Look at me, I am so cute…you cannot look away from my intense cuteness!” I tell you it’s like a drug…I need my daily hit of cute…thanks for the fix! LOL

    Do not fear the loss of your manliness due to your visiting of this fine website…

    …for it is only Real Manly Masculine And Macho Men who are so sure of their Manly Masculinity and Machoness that they’re not afraid of allowing *some* cuteness in their lives.

    In other news…

    … our Attack Cat™ just saw this post and requested that the subject of the picture be called “Snack”.

  30. The sound I made when confronted with this picture was something like “Urrrrrrrrrrrrrgh!”

    I was at work.

  31. that things a dentist

  32. I do not understand the BEF thing. I think leetle black eyes are sooooo cute! Like shiny sweet inkdrops, or little black buttons! beady eyes are MORE cute!

  33. punk penguin says:

    please, kind sir, please don’t eat me!

  34. Awww, hi little guy. This takes me back to my days of dwarf hamsters for pets. Hands down cutest small rodent EVER!! I love this blog!!!

  35. Another one of my most favorite pictures EVER!

  36. Green carpet? Astroturf? Wash cloth? It’s a wonder it doesn’t combust from touching the cutest ham-ham in the world!! Awwwwwwwwwww!!

  37. I really do like your we page?It is great keep it up.

  38. CreepyGroovy says:

    This picture made me physically ill. There is a thresh-hold level for how cute something can be before it short-circuits your brain and affects you physiologically. This one did it. I’m sitting in a pile of my own sick, and yet I can’t tear my eyes away from how REVOLTINGLY adorable this hamster is. Gah, thanks a lot, Cute Overload.

  39. They say that cuteness has the same effect on the brain as drugs and sex…this guy above me definitely ODed on cuteness 🙂

  40. I do believe this is the cutest thing I have ever seen…I want a hammie! 🙂

  41. I want to rub it’s belly…is that so wrong? You guy’s are killing me I’ve gone “Aww!” so many times it’s unhealthy.

    Wait a second…

    *starts tearing up* Awww!

  42. I want to rub it’s belly…is that so wrong? You guy’s are killing me I’ve gone “Aww!” so many times it’s unhealthy.

    Wait a second…

    *starts tearing up* Awww!

  43. I want to rub it’s smooshy belly…is that so wrong? I hate you guys I’ve said “Aww” so much lately it’s unhealthy.

    Wait a sec…

    *starts tearing up* Aww!!!

  44. dark_moonlight says:

    hey hampsters like their bellies scrached to!!!

  45. he’s all like “tee hee” but is actually plotting the ruination of us all….

  46. Ohh yeah, sorry for the triple post.

  47. SOOOOO cute! Will you be my friend mister hamster? Eak!

  48. I think this may win. I think the clapsed paw definitely may need to be a new rule of cuteness — if it isn’t already!
