Don’t you just love it when a hamster is in the room? It radiates such amazing energy and joy! These cute little creatures are so full of life and have a way of catching your attention. Needless to say, they’re not just fun pets. They’re also the perfect subjects to photograph! No wonder we see people posting hamster pictures on the internet (not as much as cats and dogs, but hamsters are still pretty high in the Favorite Pets ranking).

Do you know that a hamster once earned a Guinness World Record? In 1974, a hamster in Louisiana gave birth to 26 baby hamsters. The average number is 8 babies per litter. And since we’re talking about awards, hamsters hands down win the “Cutest Animal Ever Award”. Ok, it’s not an official award, but don’t dare tell us they don’t deserve it. Maybe it’s because their tiny little bodies are like marshmallows. Maybe it’s because they have such sweet faces and small paws. Or maybe it’s because they move around so quickly, it’s as if they know you want to wrap your hands around them, but they make sure you can’t catch them. Whatever the reason, we think these cute hamster pictures show they may be small, but they have big personalities. Warning: cuteness overload ahead!

My rat Hamlet broke her arm my sophomore year of college. Because of her "cast", she obviously had a hard time moving around and developed pneumonia. I tried to nurse her back to health, even made a bed out of an old lunchbox and kept her with me as I went to classes. My poor baby lived another two months but looking back on it now, i shouldn't have put her through that.
