Mango’s Desperate Attempt at Cute Overload Fame

No. I’m sorry, but they won’t go for this. The lighting is all wrong – I’m not all “gorgeous amber” that they like to talk about. And this angle does nothing for my paws except scream baby-like – and we know they don’t like that.

You're gonna crop that toilet paper out, right?

No, I’m not going to back up – this is what they like!

Does this angle make my nose look big?

Mango gets his 15 minutes, Paula.

    Mango is so fracking cute. The second picture, I just want to kiss that soft little snout!

  3. What a sweet hammie! *smooches on nose*
    I love that his cheek pouches are obviously filled with goodies 🙂

    In my book Mango is already a super star! I love his tiny hands, and his beady eyes, and his whiskers, and his Hollywood-esque nose…and that color…Mango, that color is simply gorgeous.

    Can i have your autograph? Mango? Helloooo??

  5. ButtaRumCake says:


    This really made my day – I lost my job yesterday, so “I was feeling low, I was feeling mighty bad” (Sophia/Color Purple reference LOL)

    Mango – you are ADORBUHLS!!!!

  6. ButtaRumCake says:


    KATRINA!!!!! KATRINA!!!!!! KATRINA!!!!!!

    I’m gonna hope you’re in the US – because VIGGO is gonna be on GOOD MORNING AMERICA (ABC) (I think) this morning!!!! *swoooooooooooooooooooooons*

    *now back to your regularly scheduled hamster*


    Hammie paw gripping the bukket in the second picture…[ded]

    Very sweet … with the pink and pale orange and the fuzz, he should be careful when hanging around tin cans … some one might mistake him for a peach and glomph him.

  9. ButtaRumCake says:

    *runs to get smelling salts & compresses*


    (I’m tryna get a handle on the carnage before it gets critical)

    *wafts smelling salts under Saffron’s nose* Saffron, dear…are you okay? Saffron?
    *applies compress to forehead*

  10. ButtaRumCake says:

    VIGGO IS ON NOW!!!! OMG!!!! *faints next to Saffron*

  11. That second picture is deadly with his perfect little face and teensy paw. Sigh. I love Toes-days in Nosevember!

    Oh and BEEP!!!

  12. Wow. Pure win. Toes AND nose. Plus, Mango is a great name.

  13. I got confused and thought Nikki’s post was about Viggo. Perfect face, yes…but teensy paws?

    What’s that? It is about Mango? Oh..heh heh…erm, ….sorry.

  14. The beady eyes, the honkin’ big schnozzola, the translucent earsies, and the baby fingers. I mean, people, the fingers!!!!! I am DOA (Ded on Adorabuhls).

  15. MANGO…..I am under your spell………….I shall bring sunflower seeds and lavender sprigs and cedar shavings to your dressing room every night. There, you will pretend you do not loff me. But you know that you do…yet you will send me away and then demand I come back. Oh these games you play. I will remain under your spell for quite some time, my sweet. I promise.

  16. @DKN: LOL I thought of the SNL skit with Chris Kattan too! ‘You cannot have ze….*impassioned whisper Mango!’

  17. Teeny tiny camera schnorff.

  18. You guys may want to consider renaming the site, or at least coming up with a sister site. 😉

    Wow, an orange hamster, and bright orange at that. You wouldn’t happen to live near a nuclear reactor, would you, Paula?

    Fantastic — and very cute — pix. One of them should be in next year’s calendar. 🙂

  19. Yes, ButtaRumCake-I’m in the hinterlands of the Great Steppes of Central Connecticut.
    Thanks so much for the Viggo-spotting. I didn’t see it, but I felt it.

    Now, what is this about job losing? First, big hamster hugs and kisses from any and all species that will soothe you. I am so sorry. We are here, cold comfort, I know, but, when words can help, we’ll be here.

    I wish you a Viggo day and a Redonculous Hamster/Tiiiiny Keeshound/elkhound yawn and everything I can possibly send you for comfort. You will be OK, even though it doesn’t feel like it now.

    Write back!

  20. KIttehsMom says:

    I wonder with Mango jam would taste like???

    Nom. Nom. Nom. Nom.

  21. @ Suzanne – Great minds, my dear. 😉

  22. Mango – what a perfectly cute name for a perfectly cute hammy! 😀

  23. Mango should get 30 minutes since his wittle paws are soooo sweet!

  24. ButtaRumCake says:

    *fans Rachael*

    Where O where is Nurse Stef? While I’m glad we don’t have bodies piled up against the door, I’m no where near qualified to squeak my shoes like Nurse Stef does…

    *breaks open smelling salts & waves under Rachels nose* How do you feel, sweetie? Y’aight?

  25. ButtaRumCake says:

    @Katrina – thanks so much! I’m still a bit stunned about it all, but I’m believe I’m gonna be fine. When one door closes, God opens another :o)
    Besides CO is doing a great job at making me feel better (although the Viggo sighting was AWESOME!!!)
    Meanswhile – I’m gonna make a list of cute guys that I can daydream about while Prongs, Theo, NOMTOM, Meg and’nem get to posting more pics of the furries! :mrgreen:


    Viggo….. Mike (Rowe)….. Denzel *drools on paper* DAMMIT…

    *new paper*

    Viggo…. Mike (Rowe)….. Denzel *drools again* CRAAAAP

    This is gonna take longer than I thought *sigh*

  26. Mango! Brilliant name for a MarmieHammie.

  27. Did ya notice his nose shadow is in the shape of a heart! He is a love mango. Cheeks are not balanced properly 🙂 Right looks fuller. Tickle whiskers.


  29. @ButtaRumCake. You have all my support. Keep the positive attitude and think of Mango if ever you feel down. God has indeed some wonderplans for you.

    As for Mango, he looks vewy vewy kissable. SmoochySmmmooooooch! ^-^

  30. Ah, I want to kiss that wee nose!

  31. Seriously cute name for a cutie but now I keep wondering what he tastes like.

    The hamster I mean.

  32. Oh my goodness what a cutie. *swoon*

    I know the cute nossicle is overwhelming in the second photo, but I’d also like to direct attention to the little paw.

  33. OMG a perfect apricot color in that first picture

    he could be a bleinheim.. the king of Apricots…..

    now then pulls out cutologist list:

    beady eyes check
    eye twinkles check
    sparkling whiskers check
    lumonescent fur check
    beepable Nose check
    tiniest of ham hands check

    CO Tower we are clear for lift off!

  34. The BEF gets me every time. I miss having a hammy to beg for buttered toast in the morning. I bet Mango would like buttered toast.

  35. SNOOOOOT! That Mango knows his/her audience!

    I guess a big kiss on that adorable snoot would end up covering a lot more ham-territory, but MANGO NEEDS A BIG SMOOCH!

  36. You cannot have-a da Mango!

  37. Ya’know, I don’t normally like mangos, but….nose beep!

  38. Space Cowgirl says:

    *stuffs mango ice cream-flavoured pocket pet in mouth* Thanks!

  39. Oh, Mango, why are you so awesome?

  40. Cholmondeley says:

    Yes, Suh, a loooooooooove mango! Yum nom nom. You can has CO fame!

  41. OMG! My heart melted! C-ute!

  42. Whatcha cookin? I think hes talkin to me! I need help….

  43. “Mango, mango, mango! M-A-N-G-O, mango! Now give it me, you mop jockey!”

    [Whoa, not a lot of Paulie references on here. Cheers! – Ed.]

  44. Did you know that we lowly humans can now live as our Hamster Overlords?

  45. @ButtaRumCake, love and hugs and condolences on the loss of your job. Yes, God has something lined up for you: He always does us one better than we think possible if we keep the faith. *Pulls out purloined prescription pad;scribbles illegibly*- Hamster hugs and beepable noses for you until that something comes along. *rips paper off and sends it cyberspacically to ButtaRumCake.

    Now, to the Ham…Mwahh, beep, kisskiss, ahh, snorgle.

  46. oh this is PERFECTION in so many ways.

  47. kibblenibble says:

    Mango looks like she/he is wearing blush in picture # 1.

  48. Luff the mango!

  49. SQUEEEEE!!! She IS the same colour as a Mango!

  50. Oh, and *smoooch* on the second pic!

  51. The second pic would be even more amazing if available in 3D.

  52. rubber duck says:

    Well he certainly looks a lot like mango.

  53. He will give you his smooch of approval.

  54. Wend- niiiice-where did you get the prescription pad? It sounds so official. May I have an magic CO prescription pad, too? I promise I’ll be very careful with it.

  55. I Love Hamsters says:

    i have a hamster and he is as cute as him i’ll have 2 download them someday

  56. Mary (the first) says:

    He’s adorabuhls but I would have named him Jimmy Durante.. for obvious reasons…

  57. my ham is a super star! (and also a girl ;P)
    tee hee ❤

  58. *snif* *snif*… my great niece Mango is famous. I’m so proud.

  59. What a handsome little boy!

  60. Luminescent translucent earsies! Or as my daughter and I used to say to our hammies, “wrinkle pinkle ears!”
