Mouse Girl – A Story of Kitty Spa

25 Sep

There comes a time in every little purr things life that she has to go to what mom refers to as the “Kitty Spa”.  I find this totally fascinating.  Mouse Girl, the purr thing here at the Hotel Thompson, is a girly girl.  We all know that.  Mommy washes me and the other purr thing here, Hemi, with no problems.  But, mommy says that Mouse Girl is different.  How so?!

Well, it might have to do with Mouse Girl being a Maine Coon kitty.  If you didn’t know, Maine Coon kitties are big… like really big.  Mouse Girl is almost the same size as moi.  Does that tell you anything in size?  And, it might have to do something with the fact that mom tells daddy that Mouse Girl has a  wicked back kick?  Apparently Mouse Girl thought to bring out some of her ninja skills this weekend when mom attempted to bathe her in the kitchen sink.  When I tell you that the kick took mom’s breathe away, it’s not just something that I’m saying.  Mouse Girl literally back kicked mommy in the chest.  After daddy stopped laughing, mom kicked daddy in the ankle to show him how it felt.  Yeah, my humans are weird like that.


So, back to the size of Mouse Girl.  If you ever came into the Hotel Thompson, you would never see her.  She’s not overly friendly with people that she doesn’t know.  I think it all stems from her days at the shelter.  You see mom/dad adopted her from a shelter.  They went to look for a kitty friend for Hemi after his brother Tybee passed away. (Both of them were also adopted from the shelter.)  When they were looking at the kitties, Mouse Girl *picked* mommy and daddy and decided she was coming home with them that day to her forever home.  That’s how she came to be with us here at the Hotel Thompson.

A lot of people that visit the Hotel Thompson, don’t even know she’s here.  But I got a great picture of her this weekend.  She’s a big kitty – a handful I might add.  Mommy thought well if she wouldn’t let her groom her, she would take her to the kitty spa.

So, let me get this straight.  She back kicks mom, won’t let her groom her so she gets awarded by going to the kitty spa?  Mom, what are you thinking?  I just shook my piggy head in disbelief.  Hemi was the same way.  It just goes to figure since Mouse Girl is such a girlie girl.

I have to ask.  Mommy never really explained it to me.  Mouse Girl was gone for several hours at this kitty spa.  What the heck is a kitty spa?  All I have are pictures like this in my head:












Please tell me I’m wrong.  Really?  Mani, Pedi, wash, bubble bath, massages AND sauna treatments.  Hair up in curlers – please, please tell me I’m dreaming and this is all really just a piggy nightmare!

Then, the telephone rung and it was the kitty spa saying that Mouse Girl was done.  Done?  Done what?  I have to admit that I was intrigued as to what she was going to look like upon her return.  Mom/dad went and picked her up and opened her crate door in the front room.  The first thing me and Hemi did was smell her.  She smelled like baby powder.  Eeww – how girly.  Then she came sashaying out of her kennel.  She looked so relaxed, different but the same, and she was all smiling.  Yep, she was actually smiling with happiness.  She’s content.  She didn’t try to run away.  She walked through the house like she owned it and jumped on the bed for a nap.  I was able to click this picture of her.


WOW – she was even nice to me and Hemi for a change.  Personally, I think she needs to go to this kitty spa thing more often.  I’m going to make her another appointment next weekend.  If she comes home all this nice and not so moody, it will so be worth it!

    Me and Nellie know all about maine coon cats. Mummy and daddy were the first breeders of them here in New Zealand. For some reason Strawberry and Kitten do not seem to appreciate Me and Nellie, especially when We try and eat their cat food. Love Nellie and Jasper, the two bestest maremmas in all the land.

    Did you tell her how good she was looking? might keep her on side for a bit longer!

      I sniffed her and told her that she smelled pretty. She’s still walking around tame – which is odd for her. Either she liked her spa day or the sedated the heck out of her – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

        I would go with sedated by the zombie look she gave and fact you say MG is feisty girl.

    What a pretty cat! I would like to go to a kitty spa myself I think! 🙂
    My Jack Russell Terrier is from a lost dogs home. I never met a nicer dog!
    BTW Bacon, you must make time to see my one minute video, but be warned!
    Watch with your Mom because it might be a bit scary! Look out for the shark!

      scary – hhhmmm – I like scary. Just way until my 31 days of October – insert evil sounds – that will be scary. Be warned.
      I’m off to check out these videos my friend. Thanks! XOXO – Bacon

    Wow….perhaps they hypnotized her while she was at the spa and told her to be SWEET from now on????? She looks under some kind of spell in that last shot. Now I’m wondering if one day your Mom might send you to a pig spa – just for some extra pampering…….now that would be interesting!

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

      Snorts – extra pampering. PLOL (Pig laughing out loud). Ask daddy. HE says I get enough pampering here as it is. He’s a funny guy. A pig can *never* have too much of a good thing, right? XOXO – Bacon

        Absolutely right Bacon……”too much” is NOT in a pig or a cat’s vocabulary!

        Exactly! I’m glad we speak the same language. Now to convince the humans – Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    She looks like a diva! What a wonderful sister you have, Bacon. Mom’s BFF had such a kitty too, their vet wore stringing protection gloves while she treated Felix :o)

    • PigLove

      09/25/2013 at 9:16 am

      Snorts – she is exactly that – a DIVA! The groomer did say she had a good kick. Apparently Mouse Girl kicked her too. Fortunately though, the groomer was prepared for such a thing and had experience. Mommy said from now on, DIVA goes to the spa for grooming – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    My kitties don’t go to a spa. Sounds fishy to me! Wooooowoooooo!

    • PigLove

      09/25/2013 at 12:15 pm

      Ours never have been either but I think mommy came to terms with that spoiled little princess here called Mouse Girl. OMG (as I like to call her Oh Mouse Girl) – snorts – usually gets her way with what she wants here at the Hotel Thompson.

    My human mommy is trying to figure out who she needs to back kick to get a trip to the spa. 🙂

      Snorts. My mom went the next day. She said if Mouse Girl went Saturday, she was going Sunday and she did. XOXO – Bacon

    Mouse Girl looks wonderful. Mom gave Hemingway a bath once and he hated it. We’re boys and we don’t do baths! We tried to explain that politely to Mom but she wouldn’t listen. That spa thing does sound kind of interesting, though. I wonder if they have catnip cocktails………….

    • PigLove

      09/25/2013 at 7:24 pm

      They must have something because Mouse Girl still has a glow about her. And she’s being nice still. That is strange behavior for her. Maybe they sent home the wrong purr thing? XOXO – Bacon

    Aww, she looks so pretty! She needed a little ‘me’ time. Everyone does now and then. xoxo PJ

    P.S. I completely missed your surprise birthday party, Bacon. I apologize. I’ll have something special for you soon to make up for it. 🙂 Happy Belated Birthday!

      Birthday wishes are *never* to late my friend. I appreciate all that I get my sweet friend. XOXO – Bacon

    You will nead a new hotel if you have any more pets. That cat is nearly the size of Bacon 🙂

      09/27/2013 at 9:07 am

      Snorts. She is – she is. AND, to top it off she is a scaredy cat of her own shadow! Not of us here but if anyone new comes into the Hotel Thompson, she runs and hides. The only way nana has seen her is by pictures. XOXo – Bacon

    A kitty spa is code word for groomers so MG doesn’t flip out. Which you have told us she tends to do often. Sme animals like the groomers others despise them. Its nothing fancy she gets wash,brushed and maybe a hair a cut and nails trimmed. While a human spa Bacon is all the fancy fru fru this woman thinks is dumb.

    • PigLove

      08/13/2014 at 9:34 am

      MG didn’t like it when she first went but now she’s good. I think she really liked it and looks forward to more pampering treatment. She’s so girly-girl. Rolls piggy eyes and snorts. XOXO – Bacon


This piggy would love to snort with you :)
