Hamsters are some of the world’s most adorable animals. They’re soft and fluffy but on the tiniest level possible. For a reason we can’t explain, small things are twice as adorable as normal-sized things. We may never know why.
But it does give some insight into why there are entire social media pages and YouTube channels dedicated to hamsters doing hamster stuff. Sometimes, they’re eating at itty bitty tables with little utensils. Other times, they’re sitting in miniature-sized furniture. People have gotten a lot of mileage out of the whole “hamsters using tiny tools” shtick. It’s not hard to see why. We just can’t get enough of it.
Their size isn’t the only adorable thing about them. They’re delightfully chubby, beautifully fluffy, and outfitted with the most amazing cheeks. Is there anything cuter than watching a hamster store a snack in his cheek pouches?
But now other social media pages are cropping up, dedicated to one very particular aspect of the hamster. And what is it? Their super itty-bitty fluffy heinie. Yup, you live in a world where people look at pictures of hamster butts. But once you see these 30 adorable photos, you’ll understand the appeal. They’re just so darn cute.
1. Now that’s a chunky hamster
This shot gives us an adorable glimpse of not only a hamster butt but also a hamster belly. I think someone’s been eating way too many carrots…if you know what I mean.
2. Do you need help, bud?
This little guy might be happily chilling in his hamster house. But there’s also a good chance he’s stuck. Try giving his backend a poke and see if he moves.
3. Kick back and relax
Hamsters probably don’t have a lot of stress in their lives. After all, what responsibilities do they have? But you can’t get mad at this guy for taking it easy, especially with that cute little tail.
4. He might need a pair of pants
At first glance, you might think this hamster has a cute pair of tiny butt cheeks. But I’m here to tell you that’s a pair of…well, something else. Where can I find pants in size -50?
5. I’m waiting for him to fall
I have a feeling this little hamster might have fallen head over heels the moment after this photo was taken. I’d pay a lot of money to see a video of it.
6. That’s one fluffy butt
There are many different species of hamsters, but humans have only domesticated five of them. I’m not sure what kind this is. Is there a Fluffy Butt Hamster species?
I can’t decide what the cutest part of this is or why it’s so darn funny. Is it the fluffy butt, the tiny little paws, or the minuscule tail? It might be a combination of all of them.
Who would’ve ever thought a hamster’s backside could be so charming? This little guy is particularly unique, all because of that tail of pure white in the middle of his dark gray fur.
9. Getting cozy
This hamster squeezing into a sock reminds me of a chocolate-cannoli full of cream. Is it just me? Maybe I should stop looking at hamster butts while I’m hungry.
10. Three for the price of one
These hamsters look like they’re getting ready to start a showstopping musical number. The lights are coming up and they’re about to turn and hit their opening note. Or maybe they’re just three hamsters doing what hamsters do.
11. Can I get a little help, please?
Is this a hamster stuck in a cup or some incredibly skilled latte art? Now I’m imagining a barista getting carried away with the whipped cream. That’s some serious talent right there.
12. Just stretching out
Is this a hamster or a really tiny Pomeranian puppy? Those puffy legs — not to mention that round little butt — looks a lot more like a lapdog than a rodent.
13. I want to squeeze it
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a hamster with such a chubby little backside. It looks like it came straight out of an anime cartoon. I seriously can’t handle the cuteness.
14. It looks like a cotton ball
This hamster looks like a cotton ball…or a doughnut…or a sea anemone. Basically, it looks like almost anything except a hamster. How do hamsters roll up in a ball like that?
15. Just burrow on in there
Looking at this little hamster butt burrowing into the blankets, you get the overwhelming urge to “boop” it. But somehow, I don’t think the hamster would appreciate a “butt boop.”
16. I think that’s what they call a bubble butt
If you’re up-to-date on your internet slang, you might be familiar with the term “thicc”. I never thought I’d use it, much less apply it to a hamster’s backside, but here we are.
Hamsters love to climb, often ending up head-over-heels while doing it. But don’t worry — they rarely hurt themselves. And we get a better view of those tiny hamster bums.
18. It’s so fluffy I want to die
Even if you never saw the movie Despicable Me, you’ve probably heard the line “It’s so fluffy I want to die.” I wonder what it is about this hamster butt that reminds me of that phrase.
19. Fluffy butt, tails, and feet
Forget about just having a fluffy butt. This little guy’s fluffy from head to tail and then down all the way to his toes. Of course, it’s that little tail that captures our attention.
20. Hamster bottom in the sky
If you had to look twice at this photo to figure out which end was which, there’s a reason for that. It’s because he’s so perfectly round from head to tail.
21. That’s a tight squeeze
Hamsters are great at fitting into tight spots, but even they get stuck sometimes. I hope this owner helped him out — after taking the picture, of course.
22. Time for a snack
This little hamster decided it was time to get a snack. And he’s doing it in the cutest way possible, with his little heinie hanging over the edge of the bowl.
23. Don’t wake me
How many of us wish we could crawl into a nice warm blanket tunnel just like this and take a long nap? Shoot, am I jealous of a hamster right now?
24. What I do after a rough week
I never thought I’d relate to a hamster so much. This is what I do when I come home at the end of the day and collapse under a blanket. But I think the hamster does it cuter.
25. Who knew a hamster could get so flat?
Hamsters can squish and flatten themselves into some amazing shapes, and often, the result is adorable. I bet you weren’t expecting to be looking at a flat hamster butt today.
26. He might need help
I don’t know what this little hamster is doing, but he might need a bit of help. By all means, take a photo first. It’s too cute to miss.
27. Give ‘em the old razzle-dazzle
Do you ever get the feeling that animals know how cute we think they are? Okay, probably not. But it’s funny to imagine a hamster turning on the old charm.
28. Peekaboo, I see a tail
Hamsters come in all fur colors, patterns, and types. But most of them seem to have tails of pure white. On darker fur, that gives them an adorable peekaboo effect.
29. This hamster butt is perfectly round
You can find geometry in some of the most interesting parts of nature. There are spirals in flowers and patterns in a honeycomb. And apparently, perfect circles on hamster butts.
30. Front and back
We have a cute shot of this little guy’s backside, but we also have a picture of him from the front. Wasn’t it nice to have a comparison? It’s especially adorable.
