A P or not a P that is the question?

So today I realized that Spell Check lists the correct spelling for the small little rodent shown above as HAMSTER. However I have always spelled it HAMPSTER, in fact I even pronounce the P when I say it. When I googled it, both spellings came up with hits. So what is the right way? Is the P silent… how do you say it?
