One small, one large interspecies snorgler

There's nuthin' better than a little interspecies snorgling, ESPESHE when there is a great size difference in the size of the two ani-pals. Somehow, seeing a little small guy and a big guy cuddle is even prosher. Don't get me started on the Japaneseness of this.

I'm gonna crawl over to your butt and snuggle by it, Amy F.

Cute! But I hope the larger ani-pal doesn't eat the smaller one!

gah!!!1!

i was almost ded from the loving way the cat watched over the mouse, and then came the scene where (SPOILER ALERT) the mouse was riding on the cat, and that put me over the edge.

now i am totally ded, and someone will have to clean up where i sploded.

OMG!!! What is it, exactly, that turns off the "I'm going to snap your neck and suck out your brains!" instinct? Please tell me. and then my little Nermal can go outside again. I really mean it. We were afraid we we going to find an eviscerated toddler on or doormat one morning.

The rat must have something on the cat.

Cats tend to taught how to hunt by the moms, and they learn early on what is and is not prey (mostly from the smell as mom brings it back to the den). So if kitty grew up around mousies, he (or she) may not associate it with a prey item.

Mind you this is a general rule, your cat silly, outrageous or just plain weird behavior may not apply.

No effing way. Oh stop. Even in his food bowl, the cat doesn't realize the hamster is food. I love the look on the cat's face after he licks hammie. Tastes funny o_O

Um, last time I saw a cat that had hamsters crawling out it's butt it meant a month in the vet hospital and tons of money! O_o

bugmom
 |  Nov 14, 2007 at 06:12 PM

OMG that is exactly what I want to happen with my cat and my hammie. Unfortunately the killer instinct of the cat has not worn away and the hammie always has the "ok crap I am prey" look on his face.

 |  Nov 14, 2007 at 06:19 PM

I'm pretty sure that cat was on drugs.

Cindy
 |  Nov 14, 2007 at 06:21 PM

is that a hamster? or other rodent? the way it cleans itself definitely looks like my little hamham. but that's just wild, the kitty actually licks the little guy! crazy bananas!!

Definitely a Siberian hamster there folks. (We used to have one.) Such a sweet video!

See, peeps, we Really Can all get along. And look freakin adorable. At the same time. When we want to.

 |  Nov 14, 2007 at 07:04 PM

Aww...so cute! :3 I love how the cat is so tolerant and loving towards his little friend.

It's definitely a Siberian (Djungarian) winter white hamster, although this one is the grey-colored Sapphire variety.

Too bad hamsters have such short lives compared to cats ;_; The two of them seem to be such good companions.

Yeah, it's all good now, but just wait till the day Fluffy's mama forgets to feed her....

This is just what I needed before I go to bed for pleasant dreams. I hope the lady with the grandchildren under 7 gets to show them this video cause it's what the world needs now...love sweet love. Whoops, dating myself.

Anne boleyn
 |  Nov 14, 2007 at 07:47 PM

Oh, wow! Not the safest thing to do -- I'm assuming mom & dad are monitering the situashun -- but these two really seem to like each other. Very cute.

Sure wish that vid was in English. I'd luv to hear what they were talking about.

And yes... it's a Winter-White dwarf hammie. Or maybe a Winter-White/Campbells ("syberian") hybrid, kinda hard to tell in the video. But there are a lot of them these days.

Anne, isn't there another song that could date you? What was it called, 'Bleen-Squees' or something?

(I never thought you were guilty by the way)

I don't know how it did it, but this video made me happy.

Aubrey
 |  Nov 14, 2007 at 07:52 PM

Jesus. God. Just KEEEEL me!!

Little hammie-like critters cleaning themselves so vigorously always make me go "awwwww!!", but this took it to a whole new level. The kitteh looked like the idea of glurping the little hammie has NEVAH crossed his mind.

Oh MY GOOOOD
This is soooo adorable I couldn't stop laughing (which woke up both my rats and cats, sorry).
I used to have a cat that wouldn't attack hamsters, but that one was just a chicken shit. He was afraid of flies too. But wow... this is great.

By the way, what they're saying in Japanese is nothing much important:
Bell (the cat) has a best friend... a very small best friend! A jangarian (spl??) hamster, Lala!
See how Bell even cleans her!
"Oh, thank you Bell, I feel so much better now!"
The two are very cute together... blabla... the cat's back has become Lala's favorite playground and they even go for a wak together!
"Hey Lala, today I'll take you to my favorite place!"
"Oh thank you!".... etc
And when you stop hearing sounds... oh, look at how cute the two are in their dreams already...

My border collie used to nose around one of my gerbils in its little plastic ball thingie. Not hard and not trying to get to it, just whenever it'd stop, trying to herd it.

Oddly, the kittyback ride reminded me of that one Looney Tunes cartoon with the dog and the kitten. Anyone know what I mean?

Kara
 |  Nov 14, 2007 at 08:38 PM

Yes! that cartoon was called "Feed the Kitty" and was the best one evar.

I think that kitty must have decided the hammie is a kitten , perhaps.

I had a pet rat once that my kitties never tried to attack. They were totally taken aback by her, and she wasn't the slightest bit afraid of them, but they never snorgled.

Thanks for the translation Akane. Darn... I was hoping they were saying something a bit more clever in the dialog. Oh well. ;)

I love the "Japaneseness" as a word.

Kawaii!

That cat is a total pussy.

That was super-cute, but am I the only one who thought of Richard Gere? : D

Roxyqueen

There are so many many cute moments in this video, but I have to say that one of my favorite things was how carefully the cat walked with the hammie on its back!!!

Steph
 |  Nov 14, 2007 at 09:31 PM

Also, that was some serious BEF on that hammie! I was hypnotized by them!

Steph
 |  Nov 14, 2007 at 09:33 PM

Meg, you make me so happy when you post Japanese videos!! I watched a lot of TV when I lived in Japan, and I miss the ridiculous Japaneseness of it all. Life took on many ridiculous qualities when I lived in Japan. You've seen Lost in Translation? They did not exaggerate.

Time to watch the jumproping dogs again....

Kara and Hazelbroom:

You can see "Feed the Kitty" right here:

It's one of my faves too... especially the bit with the kitty cookie. Most hilarious pathos EVER.

Julia ~ Thank you!!! This just finishes off the night beautifully.

Kara
 |  Nov 14, 2007 at 10:35 PM

Great vid! But is it just me, or is it whenever there's a Japanese vid gettin' played with a lady speakin' Japanese in that tone(like a four-year-old), makes the SQUEE level skyrocket? Mah fat girl Rizzo shot up the stairs when I squee'd so loud when the lady was talking!! I'm just curious!! :P

Juniper Jupiter
 |  Nov 14, 2007 at 10:44 PM

okay that ending was crazy cute!! i can't believe they were all cuddled up and sleeping together! i wish i could get my kitten and my hammie to do that, but instead the kitten thinks the hammie is a play toy.. sigh, if i only my old cat were still alive, he would clean the hammies and not attack them, he knew they were our pets

molly
 |  Nov 14, 2007 at 10:48 PM

evidence (from this site) seems to indicate that cats are the animal most likely to snorgle outside of its species (or at least be photographed/videotaped doing it) - would this be a fair conclusion to draw?

I used to have this happen with my cat, Sandbagger and my rat, Natia.

My mother tells the best story about laying in bed reading a book and suddenly the rat runs past her doorway followed quickly by the cat. The whole time she is trying to get untangled from the sheets and recover the rat she is trying to think of how she will explain this to me. Next thing you know, the cat runs past followed quickly by the rat!

They were playing tag! She went into the hallway and watched them do it for about 5 minutes then the cat cleaned the rat on the couch!

After that day we would let Natia out for about an hour to play and snuggle with Sandbagger. They really did love each other. It was the sweetest thing, I do not think Sandbagger thought the rat was her kitten, rather a friend to play with and snuggle.

The narrator is the same voice as Meowth in Pokemon (Japanese version of course).

Adorable!

That cat must be drugged or stupid. my two would have ripped hammies head off and tossed him about for a while till they got bored with the lack of movement.
