That boy is a P-I-G pig! [say in shocked voice]

As long as he doesn’t spit it all out when he’s done stuffing, I’m OK with this:

This Animal House moment ["I’m a zit! get it?"] brought to you by Sender-Inner Patrick and Jodi101.



  1. Tina Rhea says:

    What’s really scary is that he/she’s looking for more….

  2. Sarah Lynn says:

    I really enjoy saving my broccolis for later, too. Do I have anything in my teeth?

  3. *squeeeee*


  4. More More More Someone quick take that hammy to the ham cave so he can unload and then take him back for more loading up goodies.

  5. One of my absolute favorite critters eating my favorite vegetable. Perfect.

  6. You notice how when hammy stuffs the biggest piece in, his eyes kind of bulge? [shudder]

  7. yummy! broccoli!
    fits so nicely in
    hammy cheek pouches.
    this is just too cute!

  8. amused by pocket pets says:

    1. i love how the hammy begins to bulge on either side as he kronsches on the brocc

    2. i love the KRONSCHE when he eats the big chunk of brocc

    3. i love how the hammy LICKS THE BOWL for the last brocc bits

  9. Aaah, the devastated look on his face once the plate is empty.

  10. I’d like a nice big belch at the end.

  11. Fuzzybutt says:

    I gave my hammie a little taste of BBQ chicken. From that day forward he kept trying to shove my finger in his pouch.

  12. luvinmalssomuch says:

    What No Cheese on that?
    No Butter even.

  13. He’s got Cheek Pouches of Holding!

    Yeah, I’m a geek… 😉


  14. Watch out! He’s going to ‘splode!

  15. Just WOW. That’s it. WOW!

  16. I used to love it when my hammy would stuff everything in his pouch for hiding when I was a kid. LOVE IT!!!

  17. oh man i was waiting for him to try to stuff the bowl in next!!!

    >Fuzzybutt< hehehe i like that mental image!!

  18. a different Laura says:

    Oh how cute! Is he eating it or stuffing it in his mouf?

    Reminds me of my Clover bunny when she eats. We call her Hoover because she eats so fast!

  19. Holy crap, that’s awesome. This ham is my new hero.

  20. Peg of Tilling says:

    “…and he stepped up on the box and start’d chewing broccoli–
    Florets, that is
    Swimmin’ pools, movie stars…”

  21. o.m.g. scuse me while I faint. *thud*

  22. Whoa! I have never seen someone enjoy broccoli so much! I mean, he was even looking for _more_.

  23. Hammie food-ku:

    “Chomp n’chew, nawm nawm.”
    Hammies lof their broccolis
    pouch-sized, for later.

  24. Stop, fatty!

  25. RevWaldo says:

    (thump, thump, thump)
    “SH*T! Quick man, hide the stuff!”
    “Alright, punk! Where’ya hiding it?”
    “mmmm mmmm mmmmm mmm!”

  26. OK, now he’s heavy enough to fling out the window. Get a little red helmet.

  27. Why couldn’t I have had one of those things when I was a kid and my mom tried to force us to each our broccoli? It would have even fit in my pocket where I stuffed the broccoli anyway.

  28. weensicka says:

    Holy cow! Is this footage like time elapsed or something?!

    I can’t believe he ate the whole thing! CO has rekindled my love affair of small rodents.

  29. hes storing it for later, when he will empty it in a secret place in his cage.
    and eat it as a midnight snack.

  30. Also a Geek says:

    Denita TwoDragons, your comment almost made me choke on my lunch. Ha!

  31. yumeeeeeeee brocleeeee!

  32. Dang, that ham gives a whole new meaning to “stuffing yourself.” And after all that stuffing, he’s rooting around for more!

  33. caitlin says:

    Hahaha! I remember the days of having a hammy… we fed him scraps from when we cut up vegetables.

    We didn’t have a stylish serving presentation like this, though! Love the leetle deesh.

  34. There must be something in broccoli! It’s also my dwarf hamsters’ all time favorite.

    My hamsters are just as big as this guy’s cheeks in the end of that tape though. 😀

  35. oh mello…no you deee-dint!

  36. Chris B. says:

    Now we know why they call them ‘Pocket Pets’. I hope this hammy’s name is Hoover because he really cleaned it up.

  37. The mouse-hover caption made me choke on my lunch. I loved that skit!

  38. Those aren’t muzzlepuffs, they’re shoulder pads!

  39. firefinch says:

    Reminds me of watching my husband eat (except that he wouldn’t touch broccoli with the proverbial 10-foot pole).

  40. BeeCee, oh, I did! ;D

    Why aren’t you people complaining about the broccoli that may suffocate the poor, innocent hamster?! EVIL VEGGIES!!

  41. donutbill says:

    MY GOD!! Where did all that broccoli go??!!!??

  42. Kate B. says:

    I’m loving this too much! I remember when I was a kid and wanted a hamster, but decided it would be too much trouble to care for. Had I known hams could eat broccoli…

  43. Kate — just remember, your ham can eat broccoli, but never attempt the reverse.

  44. Fuzzybutt says:

    One time Gilbert got out of his tank and got into the wall. I did everything to coax him out.

    A few hours later, I spied him out of the corner of my eye waddling toward me. He was covered in plaster dust. I got his water bottle and food dish and he went to town.

    After his cheeks were thoroughly full (I bet he would have sounded like a maracara had I shook him) I placed him back in his tank with the lid securely in place. He jumped and chittered up a storm! He wanted back in the wall! He only came out for provisions!

  45. “He’s chompin’ broccoliiii…”

  46. With the new, improved Hampsternator 2000 you too can chop yer broccolees in under a minute. You seemply put it in this adorable tiny dish, and walla! The broccolees, she is…wait a minute, where’d it go!!??!!

  47. furbabies says:

    I loves me some broccoli and so does the hammie.

  48. Hamsteren!!!!

  49. And *that* is why you are #1 Choice Of Hamsters!

  50. Theresa says:

    Do you know the Broccoli Song?


  51. Does that much broccoli give little hams gas?

  52. For those of us who’ve never roomed with hams, that is a shocking! revelation.

  53. lurkertype – I loved that skit…

  54. Theresa, LOL You are a bad Girl. GO to your room young lady.

  55. Aww! This guy looks exactly like my dearly departed hammie Ernie. I think Ernie was bigger, though…he was a huge hamster…lol. Ernie used to get out of his cage and walk among my cats. The cats ignored him.

  56. now THAT was cute!!

  57. Golden Phoenix says:

    Omg! The Kronche! The KRONCHE!

    Sooo cute… 😀 *pets her female hamsters Ryan and Colin.*

    (Slight hiccup with the naming)

  58. Brak_Silverbone says:

    That’s some pretty impressive broccoli-bogarting!

  59. R. Moore says:

    I once had to calm two panicked junior volunteers that the hamster didn’t have cancer. It had cheek pouches stuffed with lettuce.

  60. I wanna hear the Dana Carvey broccoli song now. Here it is!!
    Whoo Hoo!! LURVE it!

  61. really cute…

  62. OMG, I thought my little-ones were piggies. 😉 Not all that strange for Syrian Hammies. My babies always, “stuff first, ask questions later.” 😉

    Uber CUTE!

  63. MC2 very funny. Sheeees Chopping Brocoooooolaeeeeee

  64. Shannon says:

    Holy COW!!! I’ve never had one of these little guys, but wow! They can really pack it away. I had no idea….

  65. The Honourable Gladys Anstruther says:

    Hammie, the green alternative to waste disposal.

  66. I’m still cracking up at hamsters named Colin and Ryan…

  67. …and I thought I was fond of broccoli…

  68. Even hammies eat their vegetables!

    LOL. It is broccoli! Not potato chips! Who calls that piggish?

  69. Loves Cute says:

    “please, suh, may i have some more?”

    We used to babysit a friend’s hammie. We used to give it grapes. It could pack in several at a time!

    … the cage sure got smelly fast afterwards tho’ …

  70. AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW,that is 2 cute!(and hungray…):D

  71. my cousin has 3 hammies and they stuff theirselfs too!

  72. This vid clip is hilarious!!! Great job!

  73. Is that speeded up? Yummy broc-o-lee!

  74. fluidstatic says:

    stuff. stuff.
    nibble…nibble… STUFF.
    *snifsnif* stuff.

    *squee* I giggled so hard my husband thought I was crying.

  75. Is that little guy even chewing??

  76. Anonymous says:

    the only thing that can top this is the speed eating bunny vid from way back when

  77. Crazy Rainbow Star says:

    This little guy took the one food I hate, and made it look good. I couldn’t help but giggle at this.
