Baaaaad news, Bears.

We just lost a member of the Cute Overload family. Ms. Lucy 2.0, of HamsterTracker fame, has passed away. :(

Lucy brot great joy to all those who followed her whopping 485,033.25 meter run on her treadmill. each meter and fraction thereof was lovingly tallied by Mathijs, her owner.

Let's all have a paws up moment for dear Lucy, and Mathijs, we wish you swift, running, happy Lucys in your dreams...Baroooooo!

Oh how sad :( We love Lucy! It's true hamsters don't live long, but Lucy was especially adorable and sweet and famous to boot. Condolences to Mathijs.

Aww Run Free Lucy xx

 |  Apr 27, 2007 at 03:34 PM

Now Lucy can has all the cheeseburger she ever wants.

 |  Apr 27, 2007 at 03:34 PM

Sad, 'tis true... but already I find myself wondering about v3.0

 |  Apr 27, 2007 at 03:40 PM

Goodbye Lucy :(

R.I.P. little hammie :(

Aw, the parsley spring on the microcheeseburger--that's a detail that shows how much Lucy was loved. So sorry, Mathijs.

Deepest sympathies, Mathijs.

 |  Apr 27, 2007 at 03:46 PM

Bye bye, Lucy! :'(

 |  Apr 27, 2007 at 03:47 PM

Many good memories and happy thoughts of Lucy. She had the most wonderful human....meow and woof

Mathijs was her guardian angel (and gourmet chef!) on earth -- Lucy couldn't have had a better time here.

 |  Apr 27, 2007 at 04:07 PM

We will miss you Lucy. <3

 |  Apr 27, 2007 at 04:09 PM

Good-night, sweet princess;
And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.


 |  Apr 27, 2007 at 04:13 PM

Sincerely sorry to hear of the passing of Lucy.

She will be missed.

 |  Apr 27, 2007 at 04:15 PM

I hate hate hate that pets live such short lives. I so want my dogs and cats to live at least as long as I do.

 |  Apr 27, 2007 at 04:17 PM

My heart goes out to Mathjis. He and his little hammie darling brought smiles to thousands of people all over the world.

Good crossings over the Rainbow Bridge dear Lucy. And heartfelt thoughts to Mathjis.

Poor Lucy and Mathjis.
Lots of love for you, sleep well cute little Lucy.

The hamsterburger memory will always bring a smile here.

 |  Apr 27, 2007 at 04:30 PM

Ahhh, I'm so sorry. I know how much that hurts. I'm still smartin' over my kitty who died three months ago. Ms. Lucy certainly had a happy life, though.

 |  Apr 27, 2007 at 04:30 PM

(paws up salute)

Mathijs, the largeness of your affection was always measured by the perfect tininess of those meals.

When Lucy flies up to the Rainbow Bridge, she'll truly be Lucy In The Sky Reclinin'.

 |  Apr 27, 2007 at 04:30 PM

Bai bai, Lucy. T_T

 |  Apr 27, 2007 at 04:30 PM

Aww! The poor girl. :(

 |  Apr 27, 2007 at 04:45 PM

I just looked at all the Cookin for Lucy series. So sweet! Clearly she was very loved and "indulged" by her human. She will be missed.

 |  Apr 27, 2007 at 04:47 PM

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. What a sweet, dear little thing....I am sure it had the best life a little hamster EVER had!!

 |  Apr 27, 2007 at 05:01 PM

Off to the Great Hamster Wheel In The Sky.

Go, Lucy, go!


And now for v. 3.0.
We can rebuild her.
We have the technology.

Awww, poor baby. My deepest sympathies to her family.

 |  Apr 27, 2007 at 05:02 PM

P.S. No offense intended at that last bit. I deal with things like this with jokes, and the Version X.0 deal was begging for a Six Million Dollar Man crack. I very well know that losing a pet sucks the hard one.

 |  Apr 27, 2007 at 05:10 PM

Deepest Sympathies to Mathijs.. It is always a sad day when those we love pass on.

Go Lucy I hope you dance across a diamond sky.

 |  Apr 27, 2007 at 05:14 PM

So sad. My heart breaks for her family.

Noooo!!! :( :'(

 |  Apr 27, 2007 at 06:13 PM

How sad to lose a member of the CO family. Hopefully, she now has her little wings like the hammies on the CO wallpaper. Run (or fly) in peace, Lucy!
She's probably sucking down cheeseburgers with Baru, Flan, Nana and Kumanoko right now...

Sweet Little Lucy will be missed.

Condolences. She will be missed. ; ;

 |  Apr 27, 2007 at 06:55 PM

I still miss Baru. I like knowing that these little hammies are cared about and missed my people halfway around the world.

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss, Mathijs. Why does the passing of our littlest ones hurt the most? I hope she enjoys her new home among the clouds. :.)

 |  Apr 27, 2007 at 07:15 PM

One more thing - with all the troubles we've had in the US with contaminated pet food, plus I personally lost a bunch of gerbils early and quickly ... I wonder if there isn't a lot more contaminated pet food? And if there haven't been problems with the pet food for a few years now?

 |  Apr 27, 2007 at 07:21 PM

My sincerest condolences to Mathijs!

She was sweet and beautiful, and she will be missed by many!


 |  Apr 27, 2007 at 07:35 PM

i usually come to cuteoverload to make me smile. tonight, it made me cry. poor lucy, poor mathijs. so sad.

 |  Apr 27, 2007 at 07:35 PM

farewell lucy.

 |  Apr 27, 2007 at 08:10 PM

this is one of the reasons i love this site. people from all over the world, mourning the loss of a wee hammie.

"all we are saying
is give cute a chance"

y'all are great.

 |  Apr 27, 2007 at 08:16 PM

I'm sorry Mathijs - Aubrey said it best - it hurts more than we think we can bear - but it simply becomes part of us - just like the joy they gave us - love M(:}M)

 |  Apr 27, 2007 at 08:19 PM

Sad to see Lucy go, but happy to see what a wonderful life she lived. Condolences, Mathijs.

 |  Apr 27, 2007 at 08:58 PM

Our earnest condolences to Mathijs. Lucy had an idyllic life secure in the affection of her human; a most enviable life for a four-footed furry. The absence of a merry, fat little soul is noticed even in this huge mammoth global village. A bientot, Lucy petite.
