Hungry, hungry hippo ;)

Porcelain hippo casualities in Hamsterville! HEEEELP!!! Gulp.


Ruby G. says this hamster goes by the name of "Loretta Jones." AND the hamster has a ‘husband’ by the name of Ricardo Jones. Hammies these days.

  2. Fluffable says:

    First post! Argh, what a freakishly cute hamster! What kind is it?

  3. constance says:

    ! I’ve never been first before!

    …what an adorable little ball ‘o fluff….I just can’t look away…

  4. ‘SAVE MEEEE!!’

  5. Fluffable says:

    Oops, guess not. haha.

    Are those eyes BLUE??

  6. “First” on whose blog in what alternate reality, exactly?

    …and don’t anybody worry about the hippo, she’s from here:

  7. (just as you say)

  8. haha I LOVE the oblivious look on poor hammy’s face! “Humdeedum,” says Loretta. “All is well in Hammyville.” Little did Loretta Jones know that Huge Hippo was about to devour her… (to be continued)

  9. Laurie C says:

    The pink of the hippo and the pink of the hamster’s nose (and are those pink toes, too, in the cedar shavings?). All too coordinated for words.

  10. Caitlin says:

    That hammy house is just sadistic. Good thing Loretta doesn’t know what a hippo is!

    She has the itsiest, bitsiest muzzlepuff. I love it!

  11. That, is *way* too hilarious.

    If I ever get a hamster, this is the house I will get for her.

    She’s a little white marble to a hungry hungry hippo!

  12. punkpie says:

    hee hee! I loved that game as a kid.

    And I love when people give those kinds of names animals… cracks me up. My close friends have a male cat named Elton John and a female named Kiki Dee! LOL

  13. I don’t see the casualty in this, or sense any danger. This is a birth, this is evolution, from hippo to hammy.

    Darwinism CAN be cute!

  14. Michelle says:

    Ahh yes. The cycle of nature. Earth, sugarcane, marshmallow bits, my belly, earth. It’s a beautiful thing.

  15. Awwwwwwww.

    I love hamsters so much.

    This just put a smile on my face after a tiring day.

  16. Tony James says:

    Grrrrrr…what part of All Kitten Day didn’t you get, Meg?

  17. Not That Mike The Other Mike says:


    Couples young and old can cuddle up for a ride on the “Hamster of Love.” Climb aboard an authentic 3/4 inch scale fiberglass Hamster Boat for a chilling, thrilling ride through Hippo Grotto! (requires one “C” coupon)

  18. Tony James says:

    Harry the Hairy Hippo would always regret eating the hamster kebab after a heavy night on the booze (yes, folks, in the absence of All Kitty Thursday I’ve resorted to ‘hurl’ jokes – my parents are so proud…)

  19. Emerging from her space capsule, The Hippolyte, Lt. L. Jones takes a tentative step onto the planetary shavings of the lunar landscape. Her job: to boldly go where no ham has gone before. In addition to, as she jokingly mentioned to reporters, getting away from her husband. Ricardo, she revealed, ‘is an animal!’

  20. BenPanced says:

    At least Loretta and Ricardo are married. Gotta watch out for HAMMIE SIN!


  21. Aubrey, you win at life.

  22. Michele says:

    his widdo hamsto eyes are gorgeous!

  23. Oh, the Japanese and their cute everything (hamsters, hippos, et. al.)…

  24. ah~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~kkk…

  25. lmao, i love the way Constance was so overtaken by her squee that she said ‘squee’ instead of ‘hamster’. Perhaps when the cute becomes too much we shall all start doing that. We’ll be all “omg that’s squee gorgeous, what a tiny squee bun-bun he’s all squee and squee squee squee!” and we’ll need professional translators towards the end.
    THE END! what end? i’ve lost the plot. te-oh, find squee plot! OMG IT’S STARTED ALREADY!

    i should drink less Tab.

  26. lmao, you guys are so funny…!! you want cute Japanese:

  27. That’s the beeggest snorgle I’ve evar seen!!

  28. The newest line in Japanese cuteness. You’ve seen Hello Kitty, now meet Hello Hippo! I love it!

  29. another comment: our chihuahua has a stuffed hippo that is her “lovey”. She’s actually on her second one. hippos must offer some kind of companionship that animals can’t resist!

  30. This hippo seems to be offering not so much companionship, but rather digestion. Delish little hammie.

  31. “Emerging from her space capsule, The Hippolyte…”


    >>> snaps out of it < <<

    Woo-kay. It’s a damn good thing that I’m not the swooning sort, ’cause I’m at work here. (And, y’know, there’s also the little matter of my being already married to a perfectly good literary nerd.)

  32. I think this is horrible! That hippo is obviously expressing dominance over the poor, defenseless hamster! I have a degree from Online Hippo Behavior College, so I know what I’m talking about. Someone call Hammie Protective Services to get the owners locked up forever!

  33. Too cuteee! this hammy!

  34. AuntieMame says:

    Loretta and Ricardo…


    And Aubrey, you really should write a screenplay for the movie, “The Hippolyte”! I go see it.

  35. Bubbles says:

    I was so punchy on Monday night that I remembered the entire “Hungry Hungry Hippos” commercial jingle and I sang it. Loudly. In the middle of a restaurant. I was just shocked that it wasn’t stuck in everyone else’s head for life.

  36. pistache268 says:

    A scrumptious little snozzle. Big whiskers!

  37. *gasp* it’s my Lolo!!! Ruby did send the hippo house pic in heehee~ Ruby if you’re reading this you should send in pics of your Roborovski hammies too!

    Agreed with AuntieMame, I would TOTALLY go see the movie “The Hippolyte”, especially if it stars my Lolo and Rico.

    And for anyone wondering, Lolo and Rico are white Roborovski hamsters and they kill me with cuteness every day~

  38. It looks like she is wearing eyeliner!!


  39. I live in a place where people eat hamsters. I am against that but my mother says they are healthy for you.
