Dude. DUDE.

I have wanted to get my hammies on Cute Overload for over a year now. And, darn it if the one day I finally make it on is the day I fly out of the country for ten days. Not a problem, though--my friends emailed me abroad to let me know that the NYHH hammies, and in particular the Department of Transportation babies, made it on to Cute Overload on November 18th.

Go to Cute Overload, and click on Pocket Pets, and then scroll down and there are my monkeys! Before being on Cute, the video had been seen by maybe 200 people. Today, the tally is 59,338! Can you believe it? Insanity.

Some people left nasty comments on the Cute Overload site about how I care for the hamsters, so for the record:

1) That is not their habitat, that is the hamster playground, where they get to play for a couple hours a week.

2) That was a mama, and aunt, and the mama's three babies. They were young enough to still live with the mama, and were subsequently separated and adopted out to happy, loving homes.

3) There were three wheels in the playground, so of course they all wanted to get into just one of them. See the other videos for more shots of the other wheels.

Anyway, many thanks to Emily, Tara, and Jody for sticking up for me and setting the record straight. I'm not saying I'm perfect, but I do take darn good care of the little monsters :)

Jessica. Hi! This is Corina Kingery here, the young sister of your good friend, Jessica. I got inspired to look at your site because my roomate and I are in the process of getting our 6 kittens adopted this week. (Tiburon, Elefante, Ardia gris, Rhythm, Biscuit and Kirby and all birthed by momma, who's name is Kitty). I wanted to tell you how AMAZING you are. Great specimen of human life, just great. If I was living in NYC I might just be tempted to adopt a hammie, but alas, not today. Keep up the good work my dear, I'm so glad that I met you.

I am sorry that people criticized you, I can't believe it after all you do for the hamsters that you take in, If I had seen those posts, I would have definitely stuck up for you too. You do great things at the NYHH and I have told all those who will listen about you and the NYHH.
