Miss Alice

IMG_20141225_195230“I would like to introduce you to Miss Alice, the little fluffy genius hamster, who was described by my vet as ‘like the one cow in the herd who always does things their own way.’ I prefer to call her ‘Mensa Hamster.'” -Jenna W.









Cologne ‘Tocks

020“Attached you will find a picture of “Schnäuzelchen” (which is the German diminutive form of ‘snout.’) He is a “Dsungarischer Zwerhamster,” a Dsungarian Dwarf Hamster.

[*Note- SEE what you can learn on this site? Better than Animal Planet. -Ed.]

He is very cute, and my 11 year old son loves him very much. (Me too, of course.) We would be happy if you show the pictures on your adorable web site. Best wishes from Cologne, Zuhal and Sinan and Schnäuzelchen.”

Ultimate Ham Ham ResQte!

A mobile home caught fire last Friday in Lacey, Washington. The firefighters rescued Oreo, Madonna, and three babies. The team was able to save all but one :( of the hamsters, says Komo (They had to refer to their “Pet Emergency Pocket Guides.”)

Caption THIS: Another One Bites The Crust

cashew_tongueThere’s just so much to love about this photo (the shagginess, pink tongue, match dual front/rear mini-footsters) we decided to let you do our work for us hold another CAPTION THIS contest. As usual, we’ll post our fave around noon PT! (Updated by 4leafclover! Now try getting that “Bom Bom Bom bass line outta your head.) Oh, and let’s hear from submitter Annie O’B.

“I adopted this little cutie from Wee Companions in San Diego in June. He joins my other ResQte Animals: Mudslide, the dog; Texas, the cat; Handbag the Chinchilla; along with two rehomed chinchillas, Autumn and Mister Tibbs. Here is Cashew enjoying a hamster “pizza” I made from a protein cracker, topped with carrot slices, some kale and a Oxbow© veggie treat. I got an enthusiastic tongues up! Hooray for ResQte Pets!

[RE: That last sentence- absolutely! -Ed.]

Bret The Robo Hammie has been shopping the Sharper Image again. When last we spotted the little man, he was climbing on board his own Jet Ski. Today, he’s got his own BOAT!

Crystal S-C says “We might be spoiling him too much.”

Radar ears on alert.
Dangling paws.
Chubby lower legs leading to..
Teeny tiny pair of feet.

And oh yes, those beady little eyes boring a hole thru your very soul. Take THAT, Interwebs.
