Becoming… hams.

Their first snorf…


Their first wheel… [Ehn!]


The first 90-degree haunch sprawl…


The first wide-eyed, packed-in, waiting under the plastic roof pieces for lunch…


The first…



This hamster life lesson brot to you by Amy F.



  1. Chibi hamsters! Big heads and small bodies!


  3. Jimbeaux says:

    Thank you plastic roof pieces! *smirk*
    They look so tie-tie after a long day. Good thing mom’s letting them have that sleep-over!
    (And maybe tomorrow they can have some lunchabuls?)

  4. biscuithead says:

    Oh for crying out loud!
    The shnozzle the schnozzle twitched!
    Zzzz Central?!
    SO tired!

    You’re trying to do my head in, aren’t you!
    Dang, I just love CO.

  5. Ham Huddle!! I can joinz? Pwetty pwease?

  6. AHHH! Robos!! All I want to do is have like six of them in my hands at one time. Only I know they’re the hamster equivalent of hummingbirds so they’d prolly be outta there in two seconds and escaping to sweet sweet freedom.

  7. D’aaaawwwwwwwwwwwwww!
    The best way to go to sleep, counting hammeehs!

  8. platedlizard says:

    I love their black beady little eyes.

  9. I see trouble coming – if they are raised in an aquarium they will grow up thinking they are fish.

  10. fish eye no miko says:

    Oh, God.. The cute.. I can’t STAND EEET! SQUEEEE*BOOM!*

  11. lauraewaddell says:

    Robo hams are the best hams ❤

  12. “Eat your heart out, Maru.” I just spewed coffee out my nose and all over my keyboard. The little guy on the far right in the plastic roof pic… I think he’s looking right into my soul. Holy cannoli, I’m in love! ❤

  13. o how cute! I used to have a small swarm of roborovskis… now just one is left which is really sad. I keep meaning to get more babies but I don’t know…

  14. Andi from NC says:

    I was feeling a little woozie after the “first snorf” picture, but I pulled myself together. All of a sudden BOOM – “the first sleep over” – it sent me over the edge…

  15. Von Zeppelin says:

    It looks like they are warmly protected by wads of the stuff my dog rips out of sofa cushions. I thought he was just being stupid and horrible, but apparently he was just preparing hamster insulation.

  16. Lerrinus says:

    eek squeek, they’re cute! Awwwwwwww! 😀

  17. Look at those little, fuzzy faces!


  18. Why does their wheel have a fried egg inside?

  19. Is there room for me in there?

    (squeezes into hammie pile and sighs contentedly)

  20. crazycurlygirl says:

    *shiver* *shake* KAPLOWIE!!!

  21. Courtney S. says:

    Are these bebehs hammies or gerbils? Not that it matters; anerabuhls either way!

  22. tracylee says:

    awwww I wanna cuddle in, too!

    and then ohhh-so-quietly and sneakily stuff ’em (one by one) into my mouf. tee hee !

    as someone asked earlier, why do we always want to nibble cute things??! must be some evolutionary thing?

  23. Bite size noms! I think I can fit them all in my mouf!

  24. Awwwww…they are so widdle and precious! I love their teeny tiny little tailsicles…:)

  25. kibblenibble says:

    Peenk muzzlepowsche in first pic keelt me daid. Daid, I said.

  26. No way. While that is one heck of a splayed haunch, Maru is, and always will be, the king of the 90-degree splayed haunch.

  27. MollyMouser says:


  28. Why do I have an urge to pop ’em all into my mouf when I see a bunch of baby hams all huddled together?

  29. Ana Carolina says:

    Ouuuummmmmmmmmmmmmm veryy cuteeee!!! i want all of them

  30. Adrienne says:

    Soooo cute!

  31. @chanpon – Is that a problem?

  32. I have to say, I still think Maru reigns undisputed champion of the 90 degree hanch sprawl; other than that this post is 100% anerabuhls. Love Robo hams. Have one named Zip right now… she lives up to her name on a regular basis. Sooo cute.

  33. Aren’t those gerbils?

  34. soooo cute. having a sleepover 🙂

  35. momof2kittiesandapuppeh says:

    Nope. Gerbils have long skinny tails. These cutesters are definitely mini-hams. And…ahem…


  36. Hamster Lover says:

    I would love to scoop them up and smoosh my face into the pile-o-hams!

  37. Where can I get hamster like those. I always wanted one, but my mother doesn’t allows me to keep them.

  38. 2nd photo says:

    Gettin up early to train for his 10k marathon.

  39. I had roborovskis a few years ago, and I swear they got cuter every day. I miss my little guys. I’d love to have more robbies some day.

  40. Ah yes. My mistake, mom. And don’t gerbil tails also have little poofy things on the end? Or is that some other kind of, um…rodent-thing? I used to know what they were called. I fail…

  41. I think the hamsters are really cute I just want to hug them all

  42. I would love to scoop them up and smoosh my face into the pile-o-hams!
