Hijacked by Hemi

01 May


Greetings everyone.  This is Hemi, the master cat at the Hotel Thompson.  Bacon was telling me that he posted about nature and outside creatures on his blog this past weekend.  You can see the post I’m referring to here


He’s so funny about nature.  He hates it when grass touches his hooves.  Can you believe that?  A pig that dislikes nature.  I’m not opposed to the great outdoors.  I’ve snuck out a couple of times.  It’s a big world out there and I didn’t go far.  Why should I?  I have all the comforts I need inside at the Hotel Thompson.

The little pig totally freaked out when the neighbor saw a snake in the back yard last week.  The little wussy.  He would have had a heart attack on the spot several years ago with my snake story.  He wanted me to share and this will be his first time reading it too.  So, I’m sure the little oinker will be trembling in his hooves after this – meow.

Several years ago back in 2004 when mommy first moved into the Hotel Thompson, she had window units for air conditioning.  It was early fall and at that time my brother Tybee was with us (bless his little kitty soul).  We were playing throughout the house and running through the halls and rooms.  You know, being cats.  Well we went into mom/dad’s room and something caught our attention in the window where the window unit was.  We went to investigate and about that time dad thought he was going to come in and take a nap.  He saw the way we were intently looking out the window and hissing.  He has poor vision and can’t see but he knew something was up so he called for mommy.  That’s where the fun started.

Mom came in the room, pulled back the curtain and screamed.  And let me add that it wasn’t a ‘girl’ scream.  It was more like a Sasquatch yell.  It echoed in the Hotel Thompson.  She totally freaked out.  I don’t know what she was going to do but she went out front where the snake was.  That’s my mom – a creature of do something now and ask questions later kind of gal.

So, she’s in her pajamas totally freaking out in the front yard.  She doesn’t really know anyone yet because she just moved in to the neighborhood.  So what does she do?  She runs next door to the neighbors house and bangs on the door.  Mr. Rogers adult son answers the door in shorts and you can tell she just woke him up.  What are the first words out of mom’s mouth?  “I need you.  I need you right now.”  OMK (oh my kitty).  That had to be priceless.  What a way to meet the neighbors!

So, he regains his composure and asks what’s up.  Smart move on his part.  Mom tells him there’s a snake on the window unit at her house.  He asks how big – typical question, right?  She said not big.  He dons his shoes and comes over to be her knight and shining armor. 

He sees the snake and about runs for the hills himself.  He turns to mom and says, “I thought you said it was small!”  Her reply, “Well, it is.  I’ve seen bigger on National Geographic.”  Oh my mom.  She does bring comedy to every situation does she not?  Well needless to say, the snake was relocated far, far away. 

Now, this is NOT the picture of said snake.  Mom is good with the camera but not when it doesn’t have legs and fur.  But, this is an example of what she saw.  You would have run for the hills too, right?

    I love the way the animals react in your stories. We had a lot of snakes on the farm and they used to come in the house very often. Most of these were red lipped heralds so were not life threatening, but can still bite. Since moving into town I was very surprised to find a scorpion in my back garden. Lucky it was very dark and had a small sting.

      Oh shivers. Snakes “in” the house. Oh thud. Not only would I have had to move, I could just hear moms Sasquatch screeching now. She would have passed out right there and then. You are a brave man my friend. XOXO – Bacon

        Snakes and scorpions are part of life in Africa, and if your careful you can avoid being bitten or stung. There are worse things here, like politicians. They are probably as close to a Sasquatch as you can find. 🙂

        ooohh, you are so true on that one my friend. Politicians do take top cake. mmm – cake – did someone say cake – snort. Back to topic – I do have a post about Sasquatch coming out later in the week I believe. I also have a post coming out tomorrow on my recent behavior. blushes – I’ve not been as good as I should lately – can you imagine that? XOXO – Bacon
