It Was Awful…ly Cute.

When little Lenny was four years old he went downstairs, removed his slippers, and decided he wanted to play the piano. At 3am. On a Monday morning.

Gives new meaning to growing pains, Minju!



  1. Gah! Those slippers! LOL!!!

  2. When my little hammy Gus was half a year old he stuffed some bedding in his cheeks, escaped from his cage, and built a nest underneath my bed. At 4 in the morning. Scared the bejeebus out of me when I heard tiny scurring and scratching coming from my mattress.

  3. Thank God for wonderful imaginations!

  4. (The Original) Mel says:

    I think Lenny wants to NOM the piano.

  5. “♫ ♫ Heart and soul, I fell in love with you ♬ ♫ . . .”

    I believe this is a young Oscar Ham-merstein.

  7. brilliant

  8. Stuart Little would be so proud.

  9. Look at that furry short stature. Even the hammie’s feet look skinny like an old person that would wear those slippers.

    I would love to see the slippers on his feet. And then the ratty old bathrobe with a rope tie around his waist…and a night cap.,.oh, sorry, got carried away there. Oh by the way, I think this is a girl hammie.

  26. Little Sammy did the same thing while we were on vacation for 2 weeks! We came home to find him missing and 8-year-old me was panicked. We found Sammy curled up between my mattress and box springs sleeping the sleep of the exhausted, next to a pile of every seed that had been dropped and lost in the carpet over the last year!

  27. Hamaloons!
