Hover Ham


[nyerrrrrroooooooow!] (Fly by sound)

[teeny paws wiggle]


Now that he's landed, he's far more dignified...


Pass the salt, would you please, Brandon?

Little grab-able hammie tuft AND a hammie dinner table?
I think I've and gone to cuteness heaven.

Is the ham being gripped by his back? It looks like a rather large flap of furry skin...

 |  Dec 09, 2006 at 03:19 PM

LOL tooooo cute!!! i love this.

 |  Dec 09, 2006 at 03:19 PM

Better put out some more place settings, everyone's going to want to eat with that ham.

 |  Dec 09, 2006 at 03:19 PM

Pluck! hehe!

 |  Dec 09, 2006 at 03:20 PM

I've plucked my hamster who looks just like that. Except not by his skin. I plucked him around his middle with two fingers and he stuck out his legs really far like he was Super Ham. hehe!

 |  Dec 09, 2006 at 03:22 PM

I never thought I'd say this, but...


The little feet! A DINNER TABLE!

 |  Dec 09, 2006 at 03:26 PM

Um. Ah. This is so cute it's almost sick, people. SICK. Oh, and it's bad manners to leave your chopsticks in the bowl. Someone should tell Hover Ham.

 |  Dec 09, 2006 at 03:27 PM

Omg. Omg. Omg. I can't say anything. THE CHEEKS.

Where can I get a tiny set like that?

 |  Dec 09, 2006 at 03:52 PM

wow, just WOW.

 |  Dec 09, 2006 at 04:04 PM

...First person that says it's cruel to pick up a ham-ham by the scruff of it's neck gets it.

In other news: I am dead. Killed by teh cute.

 |  Dec 09, 2006 at 04:07 PM

I dunno.. the first pic looks kinda.. not nice. I feel a little bad for the hammie.. The second one is very very cute though!

 |  Dec 09, 2006 at 04:08 PM

now if that pic doesn't make everyone smile, i don't know what would. sooooo cuuuuuute!

 |  Dec 09, 2006 at 04:11 PM

BTW, am I the only one who imagines little helicopter sounds in the first picture?

 |  Dec 09, 2006 at 04:16 PM

I was thinking more like a zooming airplane. lol...

teh cute... I love the little table! Oh and can't forget the hammie!

 |  Dec 09, 2006 at 04:24 PM

Oh my word! A little hammie dinner table. How cute is that?!?!?!? *keels over*

 |  Dec 09, 2006 at 04:31 PM

I don't think that hamster is hovering -- you can clearly see a thumb and forefinger holding it up.

 |  Dec 09, 2006 at 04:35 PM

CP: "I don't think that hamster is hovering -- you can clearly see a thumb and forefinger holding it up."

OMG, you're right! Well, these pictures are ruined for me now! Ruined, I tell you!!

First pic: "Sugoi!!!!
Second pic: "Oishiiiiiiii!"

This hamster Japanese food funtime brought to you by the makers of very tiny Japanese food replicas: http://www.jbox.com/SEARCH/re-ment

 |  Dec 09, 2006 at 04:55 PM

His dinner appears to be either _sukiyaki_ or _nabeyaki udon_, so wouldn't he be asking "please pass the soy sauce"?
Both the hamster and the toys are severely adorable...

 |  Dec 09, 2006 at 05:00 PM

TOOOO cute

 |  Dec 09, 2006 at 05:04 PM

The hammie-at-Japanese-restaurant-table is going into my download collection! But what's that on his/her plate -- a tiny little sunny-side-up egg?? Good thing you can include photos from Japan, such cuteness is surely ILLEGAL in America!

 |  Dec 09, 2006 at 05:12 PM

Okay, once again, the Japanese are pwning us in Teh Qte!

They got flying hammies that use chopsticks!

it's soooo teeeeeny! all of it!

 |  Dec 09, 2006 at 05:20 PM

I've never left a comment here before, but I just have to say that this lil guy is tooooo adorable!

Hams have one corner of the Cute market! But, that still leaves three corners....and buns have to get one of those! ;)

This little ham is flying in for dinner. He must be one of those multimillionaire hams!

 |  Dec 09, 2006 at 05:31 PM

Would you just look at his wittle paws in the second pic? And the nose! Too adorable for words.

Am I the only one who noticed how different the hamster looks in both pictures? They can't be the same one dude.

Miss Bear
 |  Dec 09, 2006 at 05:58 PM

I think you're right, they do look like two different hammies. Oh well, double the cute!

 |  Dec 09, 2006 at 06:01 PM

oh yeah... didn't think of that... the one has brown highlights and the other is gray.

 |  Dec 09, 2006 at 06:07 PM

Hamster Man, Hamster Man,
does whatever a hamster can....

"Hams have one corner of the Cute market! But, that still leaves three corners....and buns have to get one of those! ;)"

You assume the cute market is a square. I picture it to be a star ;)

Picking up an animal, like a hamster or a cat, by its' scruff isn't mean... Its how Momma Ham would have carried her tiny ham bebes! I'm sure he isn't objecting. I know in kittehs, scruffing them usually relaxes them a bit.

 |  Dec 09, 2006 at 06:31 PM

omg! That's just too funny. :)

 |  Dec 09, 2006 at 06:34 PM

Well, it is actually unkind to grab grown cats by the scruff of their necks because their rears are proportionally much more heavy then they used to be as kittens. You should only grab a grown cat by the scruff if you absolutely have to.

 |  Dec 09, 2006 at 06:36 PM

Note about cats and scruff: I went to a vet who told me that I should always carry my cat like that, because "it is a dangerous animal and you should hold it far away from you". Needless to say, I stopped going to that vet and took my cat home to snuggle her.

 |  Dec 09, 2006 at 07:11 PM

Wow! That's just crazy! Why did that person even become a veterinarian?

well, first hamster is flying in for his date with second hamster. but b/c he's late, there's no place setting for him yet. don't worry 2nd hamster, your date is coming!!

 |  Dec 09, 2006 at 07:23 PM

ok, first squeee from me ever! Flying ham is the best.... it's raining ham!

 |  Dec 09, 2006 at 07:23 PM

I do like how the lines on the wallpaper create the illusion of speed in the first pik - it's almost as if Leedle Hamsterooni is performing a VTOL maneuver...in fact, now it has become clear: what we're seeing here is Jamester Bond (you need to pronounce the J as you would in Spanish to get the full effect) - in the first picture he's making a daring escape from a narrow squeek (sorry), while in the second he's dressed for dinner and is awaiting the arrival of a delightful young lady with whom he will be exchanging groan-making puns (and possibly merkins) later in the evening.

Jamester Bond: (suavely) A gherkin...or a merkin?

Delightful Younglady: ...this doesn't mean we have to get married or anything, does it? And has that been washed lately?

Jamester Bond: One moment-- (speaks into cufflink) Q! You said girls love merkins!

Cufflink: (maniacal laughter) It is not Q--it is I, Goldenhamfinger!

Jamester Bond: I suppose this means you want me to talk!

Cufflink: No, Mr. Bond, I want you to fly!

(Enter Giant Hand, picking up Jamester Bond by the scruff...)

Lauri, scruffing a bebeh animal isn't mean, but it can be painful for adults because they don't really have a "scruff" anymore, as well as for the reason Meggie gave. I tried to hold a 20-lb cat to have blood drawn last weekend--scruff with one hand, hold one back leg and tail with the other. Kitty didn't mind being held down, but as soon as he was scruffed, the siren wail could be heard on the other side of the building.

 |  Dec 09, 2006 at 08:03 PM

My thoughts on grabbing by the scruff:

My step-father has always insisted on picking up animals that way, but even he will not carry a fullgrown animal like that for more than a second. It is generally recommended that you carry a larger small animal (like a cat or small dog or bunny) by supporting the hindquarters with one hand and the upper body with the other. Rabbits should face away from you unless you know they will be calm and that they enjoy being held--unless you LIKE sore ribs, that is. An animal as small as a rat or hamster can be picked up by the scruff, but it's best to basically let them climb into your hand and scoop them up. As an added bonus, they look super cute sitting in your hands. Of course ratties won't stay there long...
