Don’t miss the miniscule ham hands…


Hamtacular, Sophie B. ^  ^ <– Ears



  1. Oh, squeeable first-postworthy PAWS!

  2. Welshcake says:

    Just the right size for popping in my mouf.

  3. useta hada kitteh says:

    Look at the cutie babbeh! I can’t stand it. The teensy earses, the teensy all-of-it… oh my.

    I’d beep that little nose, but “beep nose” is not my department…

  4. That hammie is tiny enough to squeeze through that person’s ring!

  5. NebraskaErin says:

    Anyone want a wee bite of ham?


  6. Stop!

    Hammie time!

  7. Awwwwwww, sweet.

  8. my first SOL (squee out loud) in a long time!

  9. One of my comments was stopped for a ticket, and this is what it said.

    “If you’re a no-spam commenter, prove you’re a human BELOW.”

    Freudian slip, there. 😉

  10. I would scoop Hammi wan Kenobi up and snorgle him, but in that first picture he seems to be using some kind of paralyzing Ham-Jedi mind trick on me.
    “This is not the hammie you’re wanting to snorgle.”

  11. ShelleyTambo says:

    sniff sniff…miss my bebeh gerbils.

  12. Look at the wee squinty eyes! “Neh? Must I really be up this early? I’m cute all hours of the day.”

  13. Oh! It’s not safe out here for such a tiny little hammie. Let me put it in my mouf where it will be safe!

  14. Mmmm, one perfect little mouthful.

  15. Hammies, gerbils, mice, rats… they’re all tewtally snorgalicious! This lil’ fella is SAWEEET!

  16. GAH!!

    I think “being so young that you look really confused” should be a new rule of cuteness.

    And in other musings, why do people feel compelled to point out that their comment is first? Surely it seems rather obvious and un-noteworthy…

  17. Anyone else wanna lift that lit’l baby out of the cage? I know he’s fine but he looks like he’s gonna flounder and get lost around in those shavings.

  18. …GAH. I have no words for this one. Just… gah. He’s all “rawr!” in the first picture, ready to take on the world.

    After a quick drink.

  19. Wuh??? Where am I?

    I think I actually blacked out for a moment from the cute!!

  20. little gator says:

    S Q Q U U E E !!
    S Q QQ U U E E

  21. ACK! too cute!! perlease warning needed!!

  22. AuntieMame says:

    Where’s the dippin’ sauce, people?

    What a qutie!

  23. Oh dear. Oh my. The weeness and the teeniness of zee leetle hammidude (or hammidudette) and yes the wonderfully-toed small darlin’ tooties would certainly fit through the ring on the person’s hand who is holding the dear sweetiness and oh yowies, teh whompingly out-of-control cute attack I’m having!

    Why is it I lose about 40 points of IQ whenever I come to CO? Intellect gurgling happily out mah EARS, People. And I jes’ wipe it up and wring it back out into my brain for the next time.

  24. GAW!!!!!!!!!! Cannot.handle.the.fuzz
    (head explodes)

  25. :poit:

  26. First of all – OMG!

    I have seen some serious cute here before, but this little fellow has stolen my heart. (I wonder where he hid it…I am gonna need it back really soon.)

    Secondly, I shall now wax didactic over the “First Post” phenomenon.

    Not that I am condoning the “First Post” claims that some (lucky) people submit, I think I understand it.

    For me, it is like this:

    *I* know that Meg has seen the cute, recognized the cute, and posted the cute all before I become a witness to the cute.

    When I see that there are no comments posted, I still hurry to be “first”.

    (Since I am rarely in the position where there are no comments posted, I am saved from temptation.)

    In MHO, the insanity surrounding the “First Post” position has to do with wanting to be recognized as a high ranking member of the cult of cute.

    “My name is rpennefe. I have the strength of my belief in power of cute. While Meg is our high priestess, I, too, am blessed with the ability to sense “teh cute”. Witness my being first to post….”

    At least…that’s how I see it.

  27. wolverine librarian says:

    OMG @@


  28. omg, that is the definition of “bite sized”!

  29. Christina says:

    Eeeeeeeeeeeee! We need an All Hammie Friday or something.

  30. musicchick2 says:

    He is soooooooo wittle! No way could he propel one o’ ‘dose hammie ball thingies. He needs to gwow up a widdo bit moah

  31. what a wee widdle hammie!

    and the teensy earsitute…
    and the tiny pawsitude…

    such a cute bebeh!


  33. I never knew why it was considered bad to be ham-handed. Looking at the first picture, I find it kind of delightful.

  34. In that first one, he’s all like “bring it.” So tiny yet so fierce…very cute.

  35. Eeee! so squeeshable! So blinky! So shnugglable! I want to snorgle him, but I would be scared of squishing him!

  36. redonkulously miniscule hamsterage! =)

  37. This thing is so eensy-weensy, I feel like just breathing on him might do bodily harm!

    Teh itty-bitty pink feetses, they keel

  38. i heart da baby hammie ham!

  39. Martha in Washington says:

    I could just eat him up with a spoon-that way he won’t squish when I pick him up.

  40. I agree with

    “I think “being so young that you look really confused” should be a new rule of cuteness.”

    When they’re real young. they don’t KNOW ANYTHING, which leads to a certain dazed look…not unlike my own, but I’m sooooo old….

  41. Oy.

  42. Le sigh. I love teh hammies and I love them gooood. Baby dwarf hamsters completely define redonk and anerable <3

  43. So small I want to eeeeat him!

  44. Violet's mama says:

    OMG! Hammie is too cute for words! He inspired me to make my first post on CO! I thought of getting a puppy for my daughter, but maybe a dwarf hammie instead? I could eat him up.

    His expression is exactly like the one my cat Violet gets when she’s “making biscuits,” all serene-like.

  45. Are you sure these are babeh gerbils, I’ve raised many gens of gerbil babies and they look just like this??

  46. This is a lethal dosage of cute….can’t breathe…..

  47. I forward photos w/ captions to my sister on occasion. She lives in Hawii. Her response to THIS photo:

    Hmmmm…perfect size for pupu ;-0

  48. lyk omg……..its gotta be illegal somewhere to be THAT cute…

  49. LB in Cali says:

    GREAT picture.
    cute little squeeker.

  50. Brak_Silverbone says:

    He’s so small, you could wear him as an earring!

  51. ZOMG, how cute is that?

  52. Adorable! I miss my hamsters since they died, so this makes me really happy 🙂

  53. Squeeee!

  54. The cute bebe luver says:
