That is so great! I was literally just thinking I should get a hamster for a particular friend, but then worried that they might not be as excited about it as I am. You read my mind, this perfect, thanks CO!

 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 12:27 PM

woo-hoo! maybe I'll give one to myself ;)

:( i really wanted the hamster tshirt

 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 12:35 PM

Oooh, I'm going to have to get my husband to give me one of these! He won't let me have a hamster- worried our kitties will eat it. :)

 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 12:35 PM

Can I have one for a puppy instead? Perferably, a coupon for a puppy that comes with a complimentry blue hose?

 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 12:37 PM

Is it possible to have cats and a hamster in the same house without making all pets involved feel frustrated??
I too want a hammie...have 2 kittehs.

 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 12:38 PM

This is great! I'm getting my nephew his long-awaited Hamster for his birthday this August. This is way better than sticking a gift certificate in a card, because he can use it at any pet shop or animal shelter & it so much cuter. Thank you Cuteoverload.com for making dreams come true!

 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 12:38 PM

cute, but no substitute for a YIN YANG KITTENS TSHIRT! WHY are you taunting us this way???

 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 12:42 PM

When we lived in California, our mittens spent their holidays at Kitty Hill Resort for Cats. Kitty Hill had a resident hammie, Professor Blossom, for nocturnal observation by the felines. They kept her safe in a sturdy cage and its top was held securely in place by a ratcheting tie down. I don't know if either side was frustrated or not, but the hammie was certainly safe.

 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 12:50 PM

I notice that in the lower right hand corner it confirms that the coupon 'expires never'.

Now that's a beautiful thing.

 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 12:52 PM

I don't have a hammie, but I have too fancy mices with my kittehs. Yes, the trick is in a very sturdy screen lid on an aquarium. (The screen needs to have structural support in multiple places, so kittehs can't sit their plumpness on top and sag in the roof.) My mices don't seem to mind being watched fervently, and kittehs love the show. Only occasional problem: Flanny the blue cat, she sometimes spins her head round and round to watch Dorito the mouse run on his wheel. Then, she pukes. Otherwise, good times had by all.

 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 01:00 PM

Meg, this is ultra-cool, not to mention "prosh."

Wish I could have one for imaginary extra bunnies and a horse or two...!

 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 01:06 PM

How prosh! ^_^

 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 01:09 PM

I miss my hammie. He looked just like the CO T-Shirt hammie, too.

Poor little bastard's only been dead for 4 days, too.

No more hammie's for me. It's way too hard to see them go. I went to work the next day and told my secretary and promptly started crying again.

.../sigh. I should have bought a T-Shirt.

 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 01:14 PM

oh! i'm sending this to my husband...and telling him to print out, like, ten of them! :)

 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 01:18 PM

Has anyone noticed that it's hmaster AD INFINITUM? It's holding a free hamster coupon, which shows a hamster holding a free hamster coupon... the mind boggles, people!

 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 01:21 PM

"...Flanny the blue cat, she sometimes spins her head round and round to watch Dorito the mouse run on his wheel. Then, she pukes. Otherwise, good times had by all."
I'm SO sorry for Flanny, but you've just made me laugh sprayed hazelnut ice-cream all over my laptop...
(scrub scrub scrub)

 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 01:27 PM

Hedgedog - second that. The image of Flanny doing that will not get out of my mind, and I keep giggling madly. Redzilla, can we get a pic of her? (Perhaps not during the inevitable-result phase.)

 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 01:33 PM

Redzilla!! Hilarious!!

(maybe a video?)

Sorry to rain on the parade here, but I think this is a LOUSY idea. Animals aren't (expletive)g party favors. They require care and attention and shouldn't be so (expletive)g easy to get.

Sorry to rain on the parade here, but I think this is a LOUSY idea. Animals aren't (expletive)g party favors. They require care and attention and shouldn't be so (expletive)g easy to get. This sends a lousy message. I wonder how many of these free animals will die of neglect or be released into a lot or backyard to be eaten by predators or die of thirst.

Cathryn Bauer
 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 01:39 PM

the whole idea is just stupid and it is a waste of time. sorry to be the party pooper, but the truth hurts.

Kristin Schaffrick
 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 01:45 PM

Yeah, well, Cathryn, I think that's the point, really. You DON'T give anyone a hamster, you just give them this card, which shows that you would like to give them one. Only you don't, because you don't know if they really want one.

 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 01:47 PM

Aw - it's just for fun. Noone is going to flourish around that coupon to get an hammie. Mostly because THAT WON'T WORK, I'm afraid, but... I think if you have frequented this site you should know people here know pets and respect them... well, -_-... except for the little episodic feet-tugging and raspberry-blowing and laughing at poor micia-Flanny...

 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 01:49 PM

I printed the coupon and gave it to my boyfriend. He laughed at me and put it up on the fridge.

He later pointed out that the hamster on the coupon is holding a copy of a tiny coupon so he can get an even tinier hamster and all his even tinier accoutrements!

And someone is taking this a little too seriously... It's cute. Not life threatening.
One word: Silly.

 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 02:04 PM

Can I have just the tiny accoutrements?

/getting way too much entertainment out of that phrase :)

 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 02:07 PM

the comments on here crack me up... someone actually thought this was a real coupon and that you were giving out real live hamsters... lmao... redonkulous! oh the sheer audacity that you would torture poor hamsters by giving them away so easily... rotflmao... giggle snort...

oh, and poor poor flanny..... (snort)

 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 02:12 PM

The beauty is in the silly.

 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 02:18 PM

Wow. Looks like some folks need some perspective. And a hug.

"and shouldn't be so (expletive)g easy to get"

Good think it's not up to you then, huh?

Do you seriously want people calling you up in the middle of the night (it's always daytime somewhere) asking if they can have a pet?

 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 02:21 PM

Does anyone else see something wrong with a Hamster having in possession a Free Hamster coupon?

For one hamster to hold in his/her possession the deeds to another hamster's life is quite chilling.

I shan't be participating.

 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 02:30 PM

Have a heart, Cpt. Blood - maybe that hamster just needs a friend.

 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 02:33 PM

Big hams have little hams, in coupons in their handsies,
and little hams have lesser hams, and on into infinities.

 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 02:38 PM

Umm...excuse ME, but this is such a BAD idea. Now EVERYONE who prints one of these coupons out will now STEAL hamsters from the pet store because this OBVIOUSLY entitles them to a free hamster. And then there will be a mass hamster shortage. And they will all end up getting squished and abandoned and hated and steamrolled and murdered and stomped on and eaten by octopi. You all are so cruel to animals and obviously must hate every animal you see, which is sad. I am the only person in the world who knows anything about hamsters and I would never do anything like this because I am apparently the only animal lover here.

I repeat: This is OBVIOUSLY a REAL COUPON and everyone should take this threat of Mass Hamster Destruction very seriously. You are Hamster Terrorists. Thank you.

gimme that ham!

 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 02:42 PM

Heehee, this is so adorable! I printed it out and gave it to my boyfriend and make him smile :) It's like a hammie valentine!

(Oh, but i totally predicted there would be people going "OMG THIS IS EVIL!" on the thread before i even read the comments ... people, what store would accept this coupon? If you happen to know, please enlighten me)

 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 02:43 PM

Dear party poopers,

Um, people aren't idiot robots. We understand what animals need. I know you have a need to express self-righteous more-sensitive-than-thou-ness at every opportunity, but mebbie CO isn't the place to do so, 'm'kay?

 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 02:47 PM

On the contrary, it is having a heart which has brought me to posting.

What type of friendship do you portend to develop out of this sort of arrangement?

A forced friendship, a one-sided friendship, a slave-master friendship, that's what.

A fine oxymoron it is to see a coupon entitled "Free Hamster."

A captive hamster is what I see and it is not cute. A disdainful hamster-slave-trader is who is represented on the coupon. A swarthy rascal who offers an ignominious sum of $0.00
to own the fate of a powerless fellow hamster.

"Free Hamster?" --According to who's perspective?

Cpt. Blood
 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 02:54 PM

... it's called a joke... comeo on people do you honestly think every pet store int he world will take this? Do you think ANY will take this? Its for ones own amusement!
But it is uberly cute!

 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 02:55 PM

And since it's apparently not "bleeding obvious" (as Basil Fawlty would say), I'd just like to point out that this is a FAKE coupon, and there isn't a pet store on the planet that's going to start handing out free hamsters, just because you shove a coupon up their noses.

(You wouldn't think something like that would need to be pointed out...)

 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 02:57 PM

(P.S. LOL, Cpt. Blood!)

 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 02:58 PM

"A forced friendship, a one-sided friendship, a slave-master friendship, that's what."

Does this mean you think the free human I got for my last birthday is being mistreated? [sniff]

 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 03:03 PM

I really, -really- hope nobody thought my comment was serious.

Holier Than Thou
 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 03:37 PM

I don't think so, HTH. If all the capitalizations weren't a clue, then "mass hamster shortage" should have tipped people off. And if not that, then surely "squished and abandoned and hated and steamrolled and murdered and stomped on and eaten by octopi" was a dead giveaway.


 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 03:41 PM

HTT: "eaten by octopi". Love!

 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 03:42 PM

TheLuna, I consider you a very considerate property owner. Your human should indeed consider himself fortuitious and thankful for his comparitively easy and clean condition.

I understand that you allow your human to move freely about, and though you carry your bamboo cane about as a constant tactful reminder, you are conservative in it's use. For that your human must surely be kindly hearted.

Cpt. Blood
 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 03:47 PM

Ah, finally, a coupon. Thanks!

 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 03:54 PM

What to do with your free hamster:


 |  Jun 19, 2006 at 04:06 PM

I want a coupon for a free *snorgle* from a cute critter of my choice. I chooooose puppy heaven puppy!
