This little guy sort of looks like he already fell into the cup while it was full.

"Ghack, Cough - I thought I asked for a DECAF Latte?"

Aww! Plus, I love that china pattern!

 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 07:38 AM

i'm a vegetarian, don't put HAM in my COFFEE!
however, zelda, you may need a steak for that eye.
bad feeoo, bad!

 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 07:39 AM

I guess he likes it "black" ... teehee

 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 07:41 AM

Put up yer dukes, Theo!

(Zelda starts darting and ducking)

 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 07:43 AM

weelll...I loves my tea, but even *I* might put up with this as an alternative.

A thinker
 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 07:43 AM

I love his big eyes. He's eying my cinnamon scone, though. Naughty hammie!

 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 07:43 AM

frickin fantastic capshawn meg

 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 07:44 AM

His whiskers are too much (and I find myself wondering what his tocks look like...I've been ruined!)

 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 07:45 AM

I like his teeny tiny paw.

 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 07:48 AM

hm...i wonder if i can order a hammielatte at starbucks?

 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 07:54 AM

I believe Meg is laying an all-varmint day on us. Lovin' it, even though I'm normally a cat person.

your cat would be lovin' it too.

 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 08:03 AM

You know you've got a strong espresso when it walks out of your cup...

 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 08:03 AM

I knew that people were taking their coffee to extremes but this is a bit much... *l*

 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 08:11 AM

Oh darlin', you look simply smashing! Ready for some tea? Would you like one lump or two of sugar for your Hammie Tea? Two? Excellent choice, my dear...You KNOW how sour those little Hammies can be...

*plunk plunk*

 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 08:29 AM

oddly enough, i was taking a sip of coffee when this pic came up. now there is coffee all over the monitor......

 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 08:31 AM

how precious!

Madame Michelle will now read your tea leaves.

Let's see... hmmm... yes...

Your day will be filled with an overabundance of -


 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 08:59 AM

Shall I be a troll and say" This is not funny at all, that poor animal could be burned!" LOL JUST KIDDING!!!

 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 09:05 AM

Talk about "tea AND a crumpet"! lol

 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 09:10 AM

aww. ::swills hamster around in mouth:: mmm. fuzzy.

 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 09:26 AM

I sense a Mad Hatter's Tea Party ready to start...

 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 09:33 AM

Reminds me of The Tailor of Gloucester, "no more twist".

 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 09:36 AM

That tea has a lot of body!

 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 09:45 AM

I've never seen a non gray-with-white-belly-and black stripe-on-back-dwarfhamster! How very exciting! Are they equally small?

 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 09:47 AM

Must smear jam on Hammy's nose and get him to sing us a song! Is that just the Disney version? It's been forever since I read the book.

 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 09:48 AM

Is that hammie's name "Joe"? You know, as in "cup o' . . . "?

Meow House
 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 09:52 AM

Might be Stuart Little's cousin, Hammy McTeacup.

 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 09:53 AM

Very Scottish name that. No doubt short for Hammish McTeacup.

Laurie C
 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 09:54 AM

Hamish MacTeague of county Cup?

 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 09:56 AM

 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 09:57 AM

It just occurred to me, instead of reading tea leaves, perhaps Madame Michelle can tell fortunes from the hamster-poops left behind. "I see a crappy day ahead for you."

Laurie C
 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 10:10 AM

I'm glad he's not in a French Press! But it might be useful to filter his wee little poops.

 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 10:10 AM

"EEEEK there a human in my tea!"

 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 10:16 AM

That is one magnificent wooden table.
Hammie: "I was looking for a lemon slice? What? OK, Lemon Pledge will have to do."

 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 10:17 AM

He looks less like a dwarf hamster and more like a dark gray gerbil to me... it's the less than fluffinaciousness of his for that has me wondering... course he could have just been rolling in the butter dish :)

 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 10:18 AM

Mmm, I love my hammies like my coffee: not pooping in my cup.

The Guy Over There
 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 10:26 AM

Cortney A. has great taste. Beautiful table, lovely china, precious varmint!

 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 10:49 AM

Isn't there a Disneyland ride that looks like this?
Don't think Hammy would like to be spinning though.

 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 11:51 AM

I love that his name is Sergei!
He needs a Svetlana.

 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 01:02 PM

I love the caption for this one.

And his name is Sergei. Freaking SERGEI, people!!

"Coffee? Tea? Or me?" *snorgle*

 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 01:18 PM

my cup overfloweth with cuteness!!!

 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 03:48 PM

AAAWWWW! it looks like a couple of gerbils that i had! are you absolutely positive that isn't a gerbil?

co addict
 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 04:25 PM

it's Critter Tea Party time fer shure!

However, I feel compelled to point out that Sergei is doing Western-style tea, not Russian:


Pass the preserves, Leo. (Tolstoy, that is - jam-making recipe found in Anna Karenina. I'm not joking!)

E. Collison
 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 04:33 PM

Is the recipe difficult? Or does it require train-ing?

 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 05:39 PM

My name is Earl. Earl GREY!!!

 |  Jun 08, 2006 at 05:52 PM

Now I'm gonna call the police because Meg is encouraging people to drink live hamsters. Yup, that's me- the one-woman 'why worry about real problems like global warming when you can obsess over the supposed torture of cute animals' squad.
