  2. ASHAGATO says:


  3. Awwwwww! The intensity of the cuteness is bwindingggggg meeeeeee!

  4. ashagato says:

    dear fish eye no miko:
    about an hour ago i was buying cat food and your name popped into my head for no reason, and i thought, i wonder where the name “fish eye no miko” came from? and now you just beat me to the bleen!
    that’s kinda weird…

  5. Major beady-eye factor-age!

  6. Is Sapphire doing a Nosferatu the vampire impression, pretending that nut is a pair of huge incisors?

  7. Katie Kat says:

    OH! The little fuzzy paws… and beadular eyes… OH! Are there kisses tiny enough to place on such cuteness?

  8. All your lucky charms are belong to me! Or kibble! or whatever it is that lays beneath my blobular glare! *nom

    Who is safe from these 4 ounces of Killer Floof? No one, I tell you! We are all caught in those tweeny weeny Ham Hands from Hell! What a way to go.

  10. StormCat says:

    I never realized that little Mouses had so many whiskers!!! Look at all those little whiskerages!! I like to play with my Kitties whisker, though I don’t do it often ’cause I know they don’t like it… I’d be feeling these little guy’s whiskers for sure!!!!

  11. Winni-Pig says:

    Was this photo put through the FLUFF FILTER????

    I am suspicious!

  12. brinnann says:

    Is this a gerbil or a hammie? I dunno the difference. A gammie? Herbil? Harbl? Whu?

    Oh, and teensy pawses? SQUEEEEE!

  13. Sapphire. Gah. What an adorable name on an adorable crittur! Pls 2b jumpink in2 mah pockit Saphhire! kthxbai!

  14. He is so tiny compared to his food!

  15. …..or rather, his food looks GINORMOUS when he is sitting upon it.

  16. EaterofShades says:

    such a hungry little fuzz-ball

  17. Kricket says:

    Ok, just geeked out… love the name Sapphire because it reminds me of the show “Sapphire and Steel,” my current scifi favorite.


  18. OMG, little hammie just solved my problem. I’ve been trying yo find a way to stop people from eating my food. It never occured to me to sit it in. Thanks cute little hammie!

  19. Oops, “sit in it” not “sit it in”. Sorry brain not functioning well this morning. Too overwhelmed by cute!

  20. Oops, part two…should be “trying to” not “trying yo”. I think I’ll just go home and go back to bed!

  21. Hon Glad says:

    To eat is neat.

  22. metsakins says:

    Yes Sapphire owns my soul and that bunneh and several other animals including Miss Huggums and Sol

  23. cheesybird says:


  24. Squeeee! I respectfully demand a COXCU of the teeny paws!

  25. bookmonstercats says:

    I yam owned.

  26. Where is its nose???

  27. Since my birthstone is sapphire, can I have one of THOSE? Oh, rats (or gerbils, or hammies, or what have you), the rental management nasties have a “no pets” rule around here. Sigh. Another reason to LOVE CO!! Thanks everybody!

  28. This is a either a Russian or Siberian dwarf hamster, but it’s a very cute and young dwarf hamster. Perfect for apt living. They don’t require a huge cage and I’ve actually travelled with my dwarf hammies. Only about 3-4″ long, just perfect for enjoying and so soft.

  29. Beeeeeeeeeeep! Man, those fuzzeh fingies are way too prosh.

  30. What a great pic…the fuzziness on the paws is amaaaazing…..

  31. fish eye no miko says:

    ashagato: Ah… MY name… Well, “miko” is Japanese for “priestess” and “no” is a possessive, so it means “Fish Eye’s Priestess” Fish Eye is a character from the anime _Sailor Moon_. It’s really just a way of saying I’m a fan of the character. ^_^

  32. brinnann says:

    FINALLY, someone asked. I’ve always wondered what “fish eye no miko” meant, but was afraid to offend by asking.

  33. chanpon says:

    I lurv his little pink furry paws grasping the seed.

  34. Riikka K. says:

    Aww. 😀 She made it here! Her name is actually Pirjo and her colour is Sapphire. 😉 She’s a Russian Dwarf Hamster, now 4 months old. 😀

  35. Probably the only thing she won’t hoard are alfalfa pellets. Every hamster I’ve owned never eat those things.

  36. binky-mama says:

    I’m suddenly craving granola….

  37. NutherDeb says:

    WOW!! Rules of cuteness #8, 11, 14, 19 and probably more, ALL IN ONE adorable little hammie!!

  38. Annie J says:

    AHN! It’s so cute it burns! XD

  39. ashagato says:

    thanks, fish eye no miko!
    your interesting explanation lives up to the intrigue 🙂

  40. Totalee Puppy says:

    One baggie of airline peanuts lasts little hamster a long time…At last, the perfect pet for those tiny snacks…Let’s order bottled water, too…
    AAAAW, little pink paws…

  41. GEEEP!

    I want whatever he’s having!!!

  42. Raemie L. says:

    That was the sound of me being knocked back by teh Qte.

  43. [bemused expression]
    [hands Subhangi a peanut]

  44. This is how I want to die:
    Laying on a soft blanket, with about 6000 of these guys running and bopping all over me…oh, and I’m wearing a suit covered with hammie treats.
