Vegetarian pizza for Lucy 3.0

ItworksThe fine folks (see thumbs up pic) over at HamsterTracker.com alerted me of a new delectable recipe. Hamster pizza. (Uh, that is, pizza for hamsters.)

The "Cookin' for Lucy" section of the HamsterTracker site almost eclipses the Tracker itself, it's so great.

Check out the tortillia wrap "dough", carrot as pepperoni, red apple as paprika, cucumber as ... cucumber, green melon seeds as olives, pine nuts, parsley for herbs, and grated Gouda cheese.


And a close-up of the Extreme Hamster Tracking Poster Girl: (Please note slightly upturned, nibbling muzzlepowshe)


Thank you, chef Mathijs!

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 06:28 AM

OMG! Speechless.

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 06:57 AM

upturned muzzlepowshe, yes, but also note the downturned wee schnozzle! all the better to enjoy the bouquet of the delicacies(enHamses the flavor).

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 07:02 AM

Are hamsters smelly, or for that matter, extremely hard to take care of?

My husband has absolutely said no to a puppy or kitten cause we rent :( although the landlord doesn't mind. I need an animal, I've never NOT had an animal and it's making me crazy. The ducks aren't so friendly, as you can imagine.

So... rodentia - stinky?

If reincarnation works the way it should, Lucy 3.0 was Mother Teresa.

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 07:09 AM

I think this guy really needs to find a human girlfriend that he can prepare gourmet items for. I know where he can find one.

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 07:09 AM

that is really adorable.
what a lucky lil guy.
and i LOVE the photo 2
"look what i have and you dont" expression.

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 07:22 AM

Tonight, I think I'll go home and make pizza for my guinea piglets.

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 07:23 AM

I was having a lousy morning until I saw pic #2. How can anything be wrong in the world after you contemplate an adorable face like that?? Lucy and Mathijs and C.O. saved my day!

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 07:27 AM

Woah. I wake up seven hours earlier than normal and look at this and almost pass out from tiredKYOOT. LOL.

"The BAD Carrie" RE: SMELLY -
Hamsters are smelly. Boy hamsters are VERY smelly. Mice are smelly but girl mice are better. Guinea pigs are not smelly in my opinion as long as you clean their cage regularly.

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 07:29 AM

Although I should add, guinea pigs are much harder to take care of than hamsters or mice. They need special diet (fresh stuff) and lots of time runnin around on the floor (no wheels) and stuff. I think they're worth it though :-D

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 07:30 AM


Hamsters are pretty small, so they aren't particularly stinky. Their cage can get stinky if it's not cleaned regularly. They aren't hard to take care of either.

If you want TWO little rodents, might I recommend gerbils? They aren't stinky at all and REALLY easy to take care of.

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 07:30 AM

Re stinky question - guinea pigs not at all, as long as you clean their cage regularly.
And they're worth it! Cute!!!

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 07:44 AM

cool! maybe I can talk him into a gerbil or ree-ree then!

I'm having floof underload :(

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 08:15 AM

Ehn! Look at the teeniest of soft kronsches of the kale! It's all "tiny hammie nawming"...sighs. You have made my day.

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 08:51 AM

That is the most gleeful hamster I have ever seen. and trust me I have seen... uh one. I want to be that happy about lunch too.

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 08:56 AM

I'm still sad about Lucy 2.0, but 3.0 is really cute! And the pizza is making ME hungry :D

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 09:19 AM

Bad Carrie
What's a ree-ree ?

I like the teeniest of ham paws on the pizza platter. hee

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 09:19 AM

what a yummmmmmy looking pizza. Check it out peeps:
carrots for good eyesight
Apple to keep the doctor away
Cuccumber for tight skin and shiney hair
pumpkin seeds for superb digestion
Pinnon nut for flavor
and parsley for freshest of Hammy breath.

Lucy you are such a hammy health meister.

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 09:23 AM

a ree-ree is a guinea pig, that's the sound it makes.

Apparently The BAD Carrie
 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 09:53 AM

Hee hee...Ham Adams!

I was once bitten really hard by a hammy, so they are not my favorite of the teeny cute animals - but Lucy is a cutie patootie, and she would never bite anything that wasn't parsley, I'm sure! Love that wee little pizza!

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 10:07 AM

ATB Carrie -

might I also suggest...ratties?

girl ratties are not stinky(unless you don't clean the cage, like any other small animal). and if you huff them closely they actually smell GOOD. i'm not kidding! my susie smelled like violets. louisa smelled like spices.

also, rats are very friendly and smart and you can generally count on them not being biters (which is not what i've heard hammies, etc.) as long as you don't stick food into their cage and confuse them so next time when your finger pokes in they think it's food (although none of mine even seemed thrown off by this); i've just heard stories).

seriously, if you want a small pet you can really interact with, i can't say enough about rats.

Arvay, are you reading this thread? if so, back me up!

In the Netherlands it's 'World Animal Day', a day to extra pamper ANY and ALL animals. Please help in making it global!

OMG, a photo of me on C.O.? !!! *emailing friends*

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 10:21 AM

I used to cook for my former cat, Rider. It'd make up a bunch of chicken parts and let them cool and dice them up and he'd be all nomnomnom.

Bertha, she doesn't care for human food. So now I have no one to cook for. Maybe I'll get a hammy. And I'll make a little faux-ranch dipping sauce for the pizza crust (b/c that's the way we eat our pizza here in the good ol' u.s. of a.)

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 10:29 AM

Mathjis, Thanks for the heads up.
Hmmm I gotta start thinking I need to take care of a lot of animals.

sheep Perhaps peaches with carrot tops attached
The chickens and ducks would love some sunflower seeds.(Unsalted)
The cats... Oh TUNA of course They love Tuna.

And of course a round of fresh seeds with peanut butter for our feathered friends in the yard.

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 10:49 AM

anner is soooooo right! ratties are the besterestest pets evah! only downsides are the health problems that some get (respiratory infections, begnign breast tumours) and their short life spans.

girls are usually more playful, but boys get bigger and are more couch potatoes (generally speaking) and they're always more fun in pairs or threes.

one caveat - boy rats get stinky and kindy creepy looking from behind unless you get their giant torpedoes removed. neutering is safe and not too expensive thankfully :)

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 11:14 AM

That's just IT! I'm gonna have to get me a hammie and an elaborate Habitrail kinda thingie for him/her. There'll be Qte for me and constant "Kitty TV" for the cats! :-D

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 01:25 PM

And now, ladies and gentlemen, may I present...the luckiest hamster in the world!

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 03:21 PM

Lucy (3.0) is a very lucky little girl. I love seeing her adventures on a daily basis. Mathijs is an excellent hammie daddy.

As for smelly-ness...well, you have to clean the cage! My little boy hamster is not smelly in the least unless his mom (me) doesn't clean his cage. If your hamster pees in one area, it's even easier, because you can clean that one tiny area, and voila, the smell is improved!

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 03:42 PM

That's one spoiled rat.

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 06:02 PM

Carrie, hamsters are NOCTURNAL. They squeak their wheels all night and sleep all day when you want to play with them. Try a guinea pig for sit-still cuddliness, or a gerbil for daytime energy. My daughter has had all of them so I speak from experience. She's 30 now and is back to guinea pigs.

 |  Oct 05, 2007 at 05:53 AM

ATBCarrie - Here are a couple more websites for you...

For ratties (& mice too) the Rat and Mouse Club of America site: www.rmca.org

For hammies the California Hamster Association site: www.geocities.com/calhamassoc (check out the Newsletter link)

Concerning smell, in my experience, the only ones that have smelled are the male mice and occassionally the female Serian ("teddybear") hamsters give off a musky odor, but it goes away in a few minutes; it comes from a scent gland.

As far as gerbils go, don't know where you live but check your state & local ordinances. Here in CA they're not allowed.

 |  Oct 05, 2007 at 05:48 PM

Great pic! Thanks for brightening up my day!

 |  Oct 06, 2007 at 08:16 PM

Sitting by the roadside on a summer's day
Chatting with my mess-mates, passing time away
Lying in the shadows underneath the trees
Goodness, how delicious, eating Gouda Cheese!

Cheese, cheese, cheese, cheese,
Eating Gouda Cheese,
