Mouse Girl – A Story of Kitty Spa

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.

20130923-085301.jpg

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.

20130923-085315.jpg

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!

Work Detail in the Slammer

oh wow – you gotta check out what Bashful is up to with Stuart. They have cards they’ve been boxing…. beautiful cards – check it out my friends! Tell him Bacon sent you 🙂 XOXO – Bacon

The Scottie Chronicles - Winston's World

Since Bashful and I are doin’ time in the slammer for our disobedient shenanigans, we had some work to do. No license plates for us. No, we had to assemble these boxes of greeting cards for the Scottish Terrier Club of America’s2013 National Specialty Show in Pennsylvania.

They’ll be selling these cards to raise money for Scottie stuff. (Sorry Bashful, it’s not a Rolling Stone benefit but you’ll always be a Rock Star in my book.)

I think somebody else will be selling these cards, too. Sometime soon. I’m just saying.

What You Learned Today:

  • We’re in the pokey. Bashful and I.
  • We’re tired from all the work we had to do.
  • Putting these plastic boxes together and stuffing the stuff inside was tough. And we didn’t even get a treat for it.
  • I think these cards turned out nice.
  • Do you?

Dear Bacon – Super Hero Special

Recently, I’ve received a lot of mail in the form of Super Hero’s.  I wanted to save them for a special edition of Dear Bacon.  I hope you in blogville enjoy them as much as me and my parents did when we got them.  Snorts – Happy Tuesday!

**********************************************************************************************************************

Dear Bacon,

We heard about your mission in life on becoming a Super Hero and wanting a cape.  I think me and my brother will start a petition for you.  With enough signatures, I think we can get your mom to get you at least dressed for the occasion.  Super hero powers are something that you are born with.  We’ve read enough of your blog to know that with enough thrust, you can fly.  So, you’re half way there our friend.  Signed Batdog and Robin

Dear Batdog and Robin,

Thanks my friends!  Ya’ll look totally awesome in your outfits.  I am so working on mom for my cape.  I could use all of the help I can get!

.

20130820-052310.jpg

Dear Bacon,

Don’t believe everything you read.  Having a cape isn’t always the best thing in the world.  My humans make me wear this cape and then make me sit in the corner.  Why?  Ask me why piggy?  Because I got so excited with my cape that I might have tinkled on the carpet.  What did they expect?  So, they sat me in the corner with my cape on for time out.  How embarrassing!  Take it from me little guy.  Don’t whizzle with excitement.  Signed Super Tinkle

Dear Super Tinkle,

I’m so sorry my friend.  That look on your face says everything.  At least they could have removed your cape before putting you in time out.  What super hero gets put in time out?  Having a cape is exciting.  I really can’t tell how I will act.  But, thanks for the heads up to contain myself – whizzle and all.

.

20130820-052332.jpg

 

Dear Bacon,

Be very specific in what you ask for in a cape.  I too always wanted one.  I just should have been a little more specific in the details.  You know like, nothing over my head.  Save that material to cover my goodies.  I mean really.  What super hero is out there with his goodies showing?  I feel like a pervedog.  Help.  Signed Spider Perve

Dear Spider Perve,

WOW – thank you so much my little friend.  I really never thought about specifics in my cape.  You are so right.  I really need to be detailed on what I want in a cape.  Okay – nothing on the piggy head but covering the bottom half – got it.  Yeah, you are so right my friend!

.

20130820-052340.jpgDear Bacon,

Okay, I like turtles and I play with them in my back yard.  Yes, I wanted to be a Super Hero.  Where in the world did I go wrong with my parents?  Why would they dress me like a TMNT (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle) and think that was what I wanted in my Super Hero outfit?  Really?  Learn from me pal, have an open conversation with your humans.  Signed Turtle Dog

 

Dear Turtle Dog,

Does it help that you look cute and adorable?  Okay, maybe that doesn’t help but you do.  Personally, I wouldn’t go for the mask but at least your goodies are covered – snorts.  And hey, the shell on your back could be a good thing.  Just think if you fall, you have the comfort of some padding.  I do appreciate the heads up my friend.

.

Dear Bacon,

20130820-052401.jpg

Just remember, Super Hero’s come in all shapes and sizes – not just dogs and cats.  We can ALL be a Super Hero in some fashion.  My humans got it right in my cape.  It actually gives me just a tad bit of room to grow in.  It’s so roomy that I can move.  That’s important when you are doing your ninja kicks.  I hope you get your cape soon my friend.  Fly with Confidence!  Signed Super Piggy

Dear Super Piggy,

Thanks my friend.  You are so full of confidence and that really inspires me.  It reminds me of an old saying that my mommy says all of the time, “Bloom where you are planted.”  I guess that could mean us anipals as well, huh?  Keep up the great work my little Super Hero.  Hope to see you flying in the skies soon.

.

I really hope that you enjoyed this Super Hero Special of Dear Bacon.  I also really want to say thank you to all of my friends and family that send me emails with pictures and questions.  These Dear Bacon issues are by far the highlight of my week.  I put a lot of thought behind my answers and I hope that it shows.  Remember, us anipals have problems too.  If you have something you want to ask, please remember to send it to me at Baconthompson@gmail.com

Have a great one!

In The Pokey with Bashful

The Scottie Chronicles - Winston's World

bashful behind barsLook very carefully. What do you see?

Yep. It’s the dynamic duo behind bars.

See, in an effort to be a gracious host to my buddy Bashful whilst trying to stay out of the infirmary where the peep has been sick as a cat and unable to take Us sightseeing as I’d planned, I took my visiting volcanic descendant out along the perimeter of my backyard kingdom.

I was showing him the right and wrong areas to meander with one’s nose to the ground. Kind of like this:

“See Bashful, you can tawdle along right here and everything’s OK. But you can’t tawdle along over there where everything isn’t OK.”

“Really Stuart? Why is that?”

“Well, one of the big no no’s at my house – and there are plenty, believe me – is the road. You just don’t go into the road unattended. Don’t ask me about it. It’s…

Happy Monday My Friends!

 

Hope everyone had an pigawesome weekend.  There was finally some cooler weather here in Georgia.  Have I told you that I absolutely LOVE me some cooler weather?  I can’t stand the heat from the summer.  Now that it’s Autumn, there’s just a tad bit of coolness out there.  It’s great!  I take after mommy in that aspect.  She loves the cooler weather *almost* as much as me.

So this past weekend, I snuggled a lot.  No news flash there huh?  Snorts.  We watched some football – that I was ready for!  Watching football brings back some fond memories for me.  Daddy has told me stories on how my great, great, great, great, great, great grandpig played in the first games.  He was thrown around a lot but loved his job.  Every since then, my kin folks have played.  Now, I know you probably don’t think so.  You’ll have to think hard on what position my ancestors play.  I don’t care to get that involved in the game.  I’ll just watch from the safety of my couch beside mommy where I’m safe if you know what I mean.

I helped mommy around the house.  Daddy kept singing Mary had a little lamb to us.  I’m not sure why?  But mommy, she would laugh about it so that made me happy.

I tried helping daddy play his Angry Bird game.  I don’t think he appreciated my help in touching the iPad screen with my hooves.  I don’t know if he was worried that I would beat his score or what – snorts.

I even played with the purr things here this weekend.  I was nice … especially since they threw me a surprise birthday party last week.  I let that Hemi crawl all over me.  He even rode my back one time when we were playing chase.  I wish mommy could have gotten a picture of it but that purr rascal is FAST.  He boomeranged off me like I was a balloon animal.

Other than that, we chilled and enjoyed the weather.  You?

Oh, I thought I would throw this funny out to all of my friends on this Monday.  I know mommy enjoyed this picture.  She said it was SO TRUE.  I feel you mommy – can’t wait for you to get back home tonight!

Everyone have a happy Monday!

Happy First Day of Autumn!

Yeah – the cooler weather is finally getting here.  I just love Autumn – or Fall – whichever you prefer.  I love the cooler weather.  I love that it means that it’s almost the holidays.  And this year, mom says it means I can run and jump in the leaves in the back yard.  I totally can’t wait.

Autumn/Fall also means that it’s almost time for mom/dad’s vacation.  Most people go on holiday in the summer.  Not my parents.  They go in the fall.  Why?  Less people and cheaper accommodations is what what they say.  What can I tell you – mommy believes in saving money wherever she can.  So, fingers and hooves crossed, they get their holiday this year.  It’s been a while since they got off together to the beach.  Which also brings us to the most important question.  Who is going to watch this piglet while they go on holiday?  That’s an important question.  I’m off to inquire.

Happy Autumn my friends!  XOXO – Bacon

Heavy Music – snorts

 

20130724-221416.jpg

Mommy looks at this ap on her i-Phone called i-funny.  It’s a cute ap and every once in a while she will come across something that is so totally out of this world that she has to share.  Like this picture >>>>

That’s a grasshopper.  Snorts – yeah right.  Read the comments below the picture.  That is what is hilarious in this picture.  Particularly pay attention to the last comment that reads:

“This cricket does not make cricket sounds, it plays heavy metal.”

Mom read that and lost it.  I mean totally lost it.  No, you don’t understand.  She.Lost.It.  She was laughing so hard that she almost peed herself.  It was freaking hilarious.

So, anyone want a pet grasshopper?  Snorts

Happy F.R.I.D.A.Y!

Really, do I need to say anymore than that?!  It seems like forever since the weekend has been here.  Bring on the snuggles.  Bring on the loving.  Bring on the food.  Bring on the mommy!  Bring it!

I hope that everyone has something wonderful planned.  I plan on a full weekend.  I’m going to see how much fun, loving, snuggle time and food I can get in the next two days – snorts.  I also have to edit some new blogs that I am working on for October.  They are going to be scary!  Be forewarned now my friends.

Wishing you a great weekend – what do you have planned?

A New Show I’m Watching

 

So, I’ve started watching this new series on television.  It comes on the Fox channel at 9:00PM on Monday nights.  It’s called… are you ready?  Sleepy Hollow – insert spooky music here.

This past Monday was the first episode.  If you loved the original Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving, you will probably love this as well.  This new series is like a modern day version of the fairy tale fantasy.  I had doubts before watching the show but after the first episode – I’m hooked – hooves and all!

This new show has everything – suspense, drama, witchcraft, adventure, thriller and a headless horseman.  Who could ask for anything more?  

The show, of course, revolves around a resurrected Headless Horseman, Ichabod Crane and Lieutenant Abbie Mills in 2013 Sleepy Hollow, New York.

As Ichabod Crane, can you imagine waking up to the 21st century when all you remember is 18th century Colonial America?  Technology alone mystifies poor Crane.  There is even some humor in these clips, especially when he gets in a car and starts playing with the windows – up/down/down/up – too funny.

If you get a chance, you must check out this show and see what you think.  We at the Hotel Thompson are hooked on the first episode.  I did hear on the television this morning that there will be some reshows of the pilot tonight.  Check your television guides.

The second episode titled Blood Moon will be on September 23, 2013 at 9:00PM.

Of course, this little piggy has his thoughts on who in the show is bad and who is good already.  I can’t wait to watch future shows to see if I’m right.  Please let me know what you think.  XOXO – Bacon
