Any paw-over-the-nose pose is always cute, whether it's a hamster sneeze, or a kitty snooze.

 |  May 03, 2006 at 06:57 PM

That hammy is NOT sneezing. There is a full-on dalek behind her ex-ter-min-at-ing.... she's taking cover!!! where's dr who???

 |  May 03, 2006 at 06:57 PM

OHhhhh my goodness! This has got to be the cutest picture of a hampster everrr!!! Sooo polite, covering his nose!! Squee!!!

 |  May 03, 2006 at 06:57 PM

 |  May 03, 2006 at 06:59 PM

My personal take: he/she is meditating, lost in thought.

so i usually have a thing against hamsters after a tragic hammy- crawled -his -way- up- my-sweater accident in high school that caused a very embarassing moment that my poor 14 year old self never forgot. 10 years later, this little dude just won me over;-) too cute:)

 |  May 03, 2006 at 07:11 PM

Ahhh, I want to have a hamster again ! My lovely Zoe died last year after 3 beautiful years of our friendship together ! :(

 |  May 03, 2006 at 07:14 PM

Poor hammy has the snifles?


 |  May 03, 2006 at 07:15 PM

This is the tiniest Buddha I've ever seen.

"Dear Lord, for the kibble we are about to receive, we thank you..."

 |  May 03, 2006 at 07:20 PM

"...98, 99, 100. Ready or not, here I come!"

D'awwwwwwww! Whiskers pointing down!

 |  May 03, 2006 at 07:50 PM

omg - this web site has made me a hammie lover 4 ever!

 |  May 03, 2006 at 07:54 PM

AuntieM -- I was going to say, "Now I lay me down to sleep..."

 |  May 03, 2006 at 08:26 PM

Poor little hammie, let me get you a Claratin.

 |  May 03, 2006 at 08:33 PM

Isn't sneezing animals an unwritten Rule of Cute?

 |  May 03, 2006 at 08:37 PM

Now I lay me down to sleep.
a hunk of tofu in my cheek
if i gulp before a wake
i may have a tummy ache.

If i knew how to link to another page in the text i would but i am lame so here is my inspiration other than Theo starting it.

He's giggling at the gratuitious ass jokes going on in the bear gun thread.

>^_^< hehehehehe

"Isn't sneezing animals an unwritten Rule of Cute?"

Wouldn't that be more painful than cute?

 |  May 03, 2006 at 09:18 PM

Aw, Meg. :) I'm wearing my Hamster t-shirt right now, pondering whether I'm cute enough to send a photo.

For full-on hamster cute frenzy, check out Zippy's full photo gallery:

A new rule of cuteness! The Face-somehow-partially-obscured-by-paws-or-other-limbs rule!!!!

I move that this become a new rule. Do I have a second?

I Think She Is Saying Her Bed Time Prayers

 |  May 03, 2006 at 11:24 PM

Wait A Minute; Maybe She Just Got Punnished And Doesn't Wann Look At You.....At Any Rate; She Is Adorable

 |  May 03, 2006 at 11:27 PM

Laughing at the ass jokes? I think not. :-P more like hiding her little eyes in exasperation. ;-)

Me, I thought it was tres amusant.

 |  May 03, 2006 at 11:32 PM

Downward whiskers, this hamsters seems to be washing but still a picture-perfect pose :D

 |  May 04, 2006 at 12:34 AM

it's too cute. i need to kill it.

 |  May 04, 2006 at 12:48 AM

Since his doctor told him that he probably had a fur allergy (fur is the medical/noncute term for jammies) Colin got rid of his dog. Much to his dissapointment the sneezings didn't go away.

 |  May 04, 2006 at 12:54 AM

(a la Yosemite Sam) Say your prayers, varmint!

 |  May 04, 2006 at 01:40 AM

I guess you'd call that a "Paw-choo"?

 |  May 04, 2006 at 01:59 AM

Anne: Paw-choo

I love it!!! That's what I'll say my Kittes are doing now...You know, when they rub their paws over their noses after they sneeze? Paw-choo, love it!

 |  May 04, 2006 at 03:22 AM

I swore I would never do a hammie. Those pocket pets are so darn fragile and high maintenance. But the hammies on the site are so darn cute, I may not be able to resist. I know my kids would be pleased as punch!

Seems there are lots of different "kinds" of hammies. Which kind is recommended?

P.S. Tammy, why are you wearing a glove in the photos where you're holding Zippy? That kind of scares me.

 |  May 04, 2006 at 03:37 AM

It looks like he's praying!

 |  May 04, 2006 at 04:16 AM

I'm glad you liked the phrase. I know Meg called it the Ham-Choo, but calling it a Paw-Choo just amused me for some reason. (This is what I get for reading the Teddy Bear thread. Puns are like viruses, people.)

My parent's cat does this thing where she turns her head and presses her nose into one paw when she sneezes, as if she were afraid of getting germs on us. It's so dainty & ladylike, I feel like offering her a tissue sometimes.

 |  May 04, 2006 at 05:47 AM


Shhhh... I hate to spoil the illusion of cute, but her name is Zippy, and she is a psychotic dwarf hamster who would try to rip off your finger whenever you would try to pick her up or feed her through the cage bars. She was absolutely adorable, though... just had a thing for finger food! LOL.

Two comments:

1) I used to have a guinea pig named Zippy (I was told he was a girl as a baby, but he very soon proved to be otherwise, so his name was changed from Rosalind).

2) I just got my CO t-shirt today. Whoo-hoo! (Sorry for the complete lack of relevance to the picture - although there is a cute hammy involved...)

 |  May 04, 2006 at 06:13 AM

Dear Lord, Please don't let the cat move in next door. I promise to be good and stop putting my "poo" in with the chocolate sprinkles. I know it's not nice of me, but I get such a giggle from it! Please? Please?

 |  May 04, 2006 at 06:26 AM

Oh man. I just... I'm too tired this morning. I can't even react, this is so cute. Ahhhhh, hammies. By the way, I am all over the hammy photo book when it comes out.

 |  May 04, 2006 at 06:36 AM

why didn't i order a tshirt?
when do yin yang kitties come out?

 |  May 04, 2006 at 07:08 AM

Ahh, the fluffiness! The little pawses! Shannon L, I'd second your motion for a new rule of cuteness (paws over the face).

 |  May 04, 2006 at 07:13 AM

♥♥♥ l.d.c.h. ☺ ♥♥♥
 |  May 04, 2006 at 07:14 AM

Btw, did I mention the fluffiness?

 |  May 04, 2006 at 07:14 AM

"moooooooom, i told you i could wash my own face!"

"nonsense here *spits on kleenex*"

"no mooooooom! aww gross! *wipes face*"

♥♥♥ l.d.c.h. ☺ ♥♥♥
 |  May 04, 2006 at 07:17 AM

I am that hamster. I blame this on the trees. (#$&(* asthma-donating trees.
