‘Tockin’ and Eatin’

Um, Sender-Inner Vivian W., I don’t know HOW you managed to capture your hamster’s ‘tocks so perfectly. I mean look at this specimen!


And, turn to the right [say in police officer voice]


These pics should obvy be outlawed, with you under arrest!



  1. Oooh, is it wrong that I want to pinch those cute tocks in the first photo?!

  2. *steals the teeeny hamham tail*

  3. Queen of Dork says:

    I’m feeling the urge to nibble. Should I start with the stubbular tailio or the sturdy looking back feets?

  4. paulajeanne says:

    Boy! Boy! Boy!

  5. Actually, with those ‘roid shoulders, he looks like Dr. Bruce Hamner as he turns into the Incredible Hulk!
    Am I the only one who wants to put spectacles on those ‘tocks?

  6. The leaves are falling, the pumpkins are glowing and the tocks are showing… I LOVE TOCKTOBER!

  7. Queen of Dork says:

    Katiedid: I love ‘tocktober, too! Yay!

  8. warrior rabbit says:

    That tail looks yummy! A tasty hors d’oeuvre.

  9. Copperbat says:

    Not a good idea to pinch those ‘tocks. They’re harbuls, not cheeks. :p

  10. Meaty drumticks!

  11. Now there’s a set of buttttocks!

  12. I’m pretty sure that what you guys are calling “tocks” is mostly his big hamster “boy parts.”

  13. Teeny-tiny tailio ‘tocks.

  14. Didn’t your momma ever teach you not to ‘tock with your mouth full?

    Anybody else pick up on Chief Sister Officer’s use of some dialogue from
    “Raising Arizona”?

  16. MoonCatty says:


    These adorabuhl pics are SPECTOCKULAR!

  17. Meg’s posts are the funniest and the best!! YAAAY!

  18. Molly- I’m sure there is some tocks in there somewhere 😀

  19. fish eye no miko says:

    “Can’t I eat in peace without you taking pictures of my ‘tocks?
    I would happen to get an owner who frequents CuteOverload…”

  20. Second pic makes me think of Ultra PeePee 🙂

    Cute hammie hiney.

  21. fish eye no miko says:

    @Gaz: “I am your lord and hamster-master!”

  22. yyeeeahhh, those aren’t actually tocks…

  23. @O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!!
    You are correct! That’s EXACTLY where the quote comes from…

  24. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! FTW!

  25. Big Bad Hammy Nads.

  26. now i have the beastie boys’ rhymin’ and stealin’ stuck in my head, except replaced by tockin’ and eatin’ :p

  27. Actually, when you call him hamster-master you’re more close to the truth than you might think – Merriam-Webster on the origin of the word ‘hamster:

    “German, from Old High German hamustro, of Slavic origin; akin to Old Russian choměstorŭ hamster, of Iranian origin; akin to Avestan hamaēstar- oppressor.”

  28. Tocks of the year. Defo.

  29. So cute..
    He looks similar to a hamster I had, she recently passed away.
    Same eyes and coat color, yet the white spot she had was only on her left chest.
    This brings up memories..

    @ Chief Sister Officer:

    “Why, thankye, Mum!!”

  31. Ham tocks…need some collards to go with them.

  32. that tiny tail puff! excellent. i always think hamsters have mysterious ‘tocks. (i always had mice – theirs are much more obvy.)

    ps I’m back!


  33. Wow. These are tocksic.

  34. (The Original) Mel says:

    Ankle floof.

  35. Looks like he’s had a little augmentation in the hind quarters.

  36. Bunny Hop, I 😆 ‘d.

  37. 260Oakley says:

    @Bonny Hop
    Perhaps these are an example of the tocksic assets we keep hearing about on the news.

  38. Fan – tock -stic

  39. @260Oakley, that’s an a posteriori analysis. 😛

  40. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!!! says:

    oooooooooooooooooooooooooooo 2600:
    THAT”s one o’ yer BEST!!!! (IM-h?-O)

    aka= cha CHING!!!! 🙂

  41. awww, hammie tocks ‘n’ harblz! (harblz ‘n’ tocks?)

  42. Kris, does that make them hamblz?

  43. Um, testockular.

  44. A red-eyed argente, just like my widdle boys!

  45. You shouldn’t ‘tock with your mouth full!

  46. @ brinnann–ooh Hamblz, love it!

    Hamblz wobble but they don’t fall down.

  47. warrior rabbit says:

    Yay, Carolyn! LOL

  48. His poor wittle tail doesn’t provide much privacy at all….
    For sure a boy hammie.

  49. RampantFerret says:

    heh. Those ain’t ‘tocks people. Those are balls. Hamsters have extremely large testicles in relation to bodysize. So I reccomend not pinching them… as that may result in Mr. Hammie never fathering baby hammies.

  50. Who can focus on hammie ‘tocks when you have the tailio stub?

  51. @RampantFerret

    You kidding?? Nuthin keeps boy hammies from procreatin’. They are industrial-potent! But you might loose a finger or too. They don’t take kindly to having their industries pinched.

    Signed, Stumpy.

    Just kidding!!

  52. Um… two.

  53. I don’t know if those are his ‘tocks that you’re looking at. Looks more like rodent testicles to me.

  54. it’s so cute.
