Name these Hammies!

Poor reader Mia M. has a dilemma. Two anerable [this just in ‘female Chinese dwarf’] hamsters without names! Can YOU help her? Just take a peek as these prosh lil’ girls..

Hmmm, they like costume jewelry—perhaps fashion designer names?  They like hanging out on elbows and shoulders—perhaps Mani and Pedi? The POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS!


Your fortune says: You will meet Daisy the Daschund

Confucious says: You will soon befriend a delightful lil’ pup named Daisy the Daschund (OK, it’s not a giant fortune cookie, but a blankie, you’re right)

The Crack of Noon Refusal

Look, it’s a Saturday morning, and there is simply NO REASON to get out of bed yet. It’s warm and comfterbuls in here, and grey outside, and you can bring me coffee right here. I don’t need to get out if you’re already out. Nyerhe! [pulls covers over head with paws] Nyerhe, nyerhe, nyerrrrrrrzzz.

All Hammy Friday: PuffyBear spoons

I’m warning you. If you look directly at lil’ Puffbear’s teeny tail—you might keel over instantly. It’s really the END to a perfect week. Get it!?


Beautifully shot and in the collection of Seattle Roll. 🙂

All Hamster Friday: Broccolis? for moi?

Amazingly, lil’ Kumanoko always appears to have his mouth open in astonishment. Prolly amazed by his own cuteness. Even HE can’t believe himself!


OK, perhaps most precious detail photo EVAR? You cannot disagree.


Snorting brocca-leh! She’s snorting! UHN [Say in Dana Carvey voice]
Once again, Seattle Roll gets the prize for best macro hamster lens.

All Hammy Friday: Lili!

Dangerously close to a certain other ‘World Peace’ hamster in her noshing habits, this is ‘Lili’ the rotund, kernel-eating fluffmobile. Do not get your fingers too close to her mouf.


All Hammy Friday, made possible by Seattle Roll.

All Hammy Friday!

People, get ready. Set up your sleeping bags and viewing perches because It’s ALL HAMMY FRIDAY! First up is our favorite lil’ blond, Kumanoko, he’s ready to—HE’S SLEEPING AGAIN!




Seattle Roll, How do I love thee?

And now, turn to the left!


Gracias for the submission, Derek P. and Waferbaby.


"Tommy, say hello to Winston. Let’s be nice. Winston’s a prickly fellow at first, but his beady eyes are just the same as yours."

[My friend’s Dad used to hiss "LBN!!!" to his fighting daughters growing up. They did not have beady eyes, BTW.]


Shout out to Cliff H. and Wesleyan-attending photo submitter Lynn. 😉

This doesn’t look so good.

Let’s see. A coconut drink holder with rabbit ‘drink’ in it, Wild Turkey, oversized ‘pills’, a lighter and Ye Olde Cap’n Morgan’s. Never mind, it’s just the usual Saturday night hijinx.
