Let's check in on Lucy 2.0 at Teh HamsterTracker

We're BIG fans of Lucy 2.0 over here. Lucy captured our hearts when we discovered her master Mathijs began documenting the distance she covered in her RUNNIN' WHEEL. She's gone over 425,000 meters in that wheel!

Check out the delightful snax Mathijs prepares for his girl. MMMMMM, Banana Split cake!

I love the squinty eyes. It just screams foodgasm (can I say that on CO? :o!)

I just wish the flash didn''t cover the hammie ears. :(

Not the best of pics (flash, out of focus), but Lucy is so darn cute. Hamsters in general are. I used to cook for mine too. :)

A hammie walloping down a meal in the middle of a massive camera flash means only this:

Flash Gorgin'

And a banana split cake begs only this question:

Where's Fleegle?

yep, definitely some snake genes in this cute little hamster. About the calories. She is exercising a lot so the cake is bound to disappear on the wheel.

RAWR!

Man, is she attacking that thing.

A good mix of carbs and protein for our girl! She needs all that stuff to keep up her running...

("Flash Gorgin'"...ARGH!!!) : )

In a lab during a storm something went wrong while she was working.

She now will save the world as "Snakey-Ham".

What a cute hammie, and I love the website! Is Mathijs' last name really van der PAAUW? Too perfect!

Lol....I Love Lucy, too.

That's definitely an EHN and a NAWMNAWMNAWM all in one.

Hey Meg,

Love the Hamsters, but my submission emails to you keep getting returned! Whats the deal?

p.s. that is a lot of food for a hamster! do you think she will have indigestion?

Katie
 |  Aug 24, 2006 at 06:31 AM

Snakes on A Plane! She can open her mouth wide like a snake!

Nightbird sez..."Alls I can say is..."Now there's a man who luvs his hamster!""

Can I be the first person not to mention Richard Gere in the context of this conversation? [sorry]

Looking at the stats, Lucy is averaging almost 1000 metres a day in her wheel - that's more than half a mile! If we take the average hamster length to be 5" or 13cm, then Lucy runs an average of 7,692 times her body length on a daily basis! In human terms that's the equivalent of 850 miles! That's 32 marathons or 12 IronMans! In a day! Dude!

Awww! I just LOVE the cute little treats Mathijs makes for Lucy! He sure loves his little "girl"!

(And what's not to like, eh? She's got to be the most photogenic rodent on the face of the earth! *grin*)

Yikes! Marmalade kitten alert! Have you guys seen The Daily Kitten yet today?

That banana cake looks pretty tasty. She's trying to get a good grip on it to carry it away somewhere safe and snarf it up.

Courtney
 |  Aug 24, 2006 at 10:30 AM

Ceejoe!

I sure have! Marmalade floofiness! Pink nose!

A kittie the size of a TEA CUP!

Aubrey
 |  Aug 24, 2006 at 10:42 AM

Hamsters are not cute! Love the site, but please, fewer rodents! And fewer grown cats. Kittens are cute. Puppies are cute. Adult dogs can be cute. Adult cats never are. Hedgehogs, fine. Ferrets, OK sometimes. But the mice and rats and hamsters, yuck.

Jim
 |  Aug 24, 2006 at 10:43 AM

actually, I wouldn't mind making this little snack for meself.

I LOVE checking on Lucy everday - she's so adorable with her pudgy pink nose and oh-so-smart way of doing things. Such a sweetie.

C.O. is for everyone - none of us has the right to request that certain animals be omitted.

Jim:

Feel free to open your own cute-oriented site, suited to your personal tastes. I *MIGHT* even visit it.

And if I do, I'll have the class NOT to tell YOU how to run YOUR site.

Pretty cool, huh?

Okay, this might not be the best pitture of Lucy, but how can anyone with two functional eyes not think hamsters are cute? Okay there's the whole rodents are scary let's stand on the chair and scream sort of brainwashing we get from watching cartoons as kids, but dude get over it! Look at her nose, at her little hands and sweet soft belly. Think Beatrix Potter.

Don't worry about it, peeps... it was just one comment. One opinion out of countless.

;)

Theo

It does not show Lucy at her cutest, but I love the absolute snarf factor. Like, she isn't going to take any chances on not getting the WHOLE banana cake treat--better to just grab it all at one go.

Two more wonderful things about Lucy and Mathijs:

1) Mathijs is making HamsterTracker Tee shirts and
2) He features a link to all her gracious appearances on CO

A for a little "self promotion", check out his new link to Extreme Hamster Tracking - click on the American Flag and see cuteness times 2. A postcard of the famous Lucy and the guinea pig we've been babysitting all summer. Lyra!!

Cute is cute! Hamster, cat or kitten....I'll take whatever cuteness I can get!! I LOVE Lucy. Pah-leees. Thanks for all the work and effort you put into this site. It is my daily dose of self medication! :)

Flash Gorgin'?? PERFECT! LOL

Since it's a slow day in CO Land, here's my latest project:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/ceejoe/

Check out all my babies! Flickr's new to me, so let me know if it doesn't work for ya,or how I can make it better.

 |  Aug 24, 2006 at 12:42 PM

Hooray for Lucy! And thank goodness her nice owner isn't all aggro with, "Cease and desist, CO, you're violating the HamsterTracker copyright, I'm going to sue your ass, snarl, hiss." He knows he can sell waaay more t-shirts to CO junkies, heee...

It really blows me away when someone tries to tell someone else what to put on their OWN site.
It's just weird.
If you want to pick what goes on a site, start yer own.
You can pick yer own, just don't pick anyone elses'.

Ya know, Aubrey it took me a full minute to "get" the Flash Gorgin'. I really AM losing it!

Lauri
 |  Aug 24, 2006 at 12:48 PM

ceejoe,
I love all the furkid pics! They are all so precious! Little Elaine's baby pic....awwwww....
and I always turn into a giant goosebump when I read about the ones who have crossed the rainbow bridge.
*sniff*

Lauri
 |  Aug 24, 2006 at 12:51 PM

*grins* TJ, thanks SO much for not mentioning Richard Gere. I really didn't want to go there. Really!

Lauri
 |  Aug 24, 2006 at 12:53 PM

CeeJoe - Arnold & Bobbie look "substantial" - and so cute!!! Thanks for sharing! :)
