Spotlight Thursday – Meet Lucy

Spotlight Thursday

Welcome my friends to SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY.  This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better.  Some of them, you may already know.  We hope that you enjoy this series!


Name:  Lucy Howell McCormick

Age:  seven years

Location:  Mustang Island, Texas

Web/Blog Page:  http://johnwhowell.com/

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  Well, I was a rescue from San Antonio and my mom met me at an adoption event. She was looking at another and my thought was she looks like the kind of person who will love me forever. I went up to her and the rest is history. (My secret was giving her a kiss)

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  I met my dad and he said, “This is the most beautiful fur person on Earth.” I knew that I had arrived.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?  One night there were a lot of people over for drinks and canapés . Someone suggested going onto the deck to see the moon. While they were gone my sister and I ate everything we could find. Although I enjoyed the food I did think there would be a consequence. Turns out a visit to the vet was the only punishment. We never got another chance to do it again.

Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  I would say my mom. She is smaller than dad and I can fit nicely on her couch when she is on it too. Old dad takes too much room. Mom always welcomes me when it is time for a snuggle.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?   Because I’m a boxer  and look like a bulldog people think I’m a bulldog. I get a number of people doubting I’m a boxer especially since I’m white in color. Of course, the minute they come near I give them the boxer greeting which includes a big kiss.




Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!

Spotlight Thursday – Meet Noel, The Christmas Cat

Spotlight Thursday

Welcome my friends to SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY.  This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better.  Some of them, you may already know.  We hope that you enjoy this series!


Name:  Noel, The Christmas Cat

Age:  10

Location:   Annapolis, Maryland, USA

Web/Blog Page:  http://dogdaz.com/

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  I was really scared and really sick, but the humans did not know that yet. I just wanted to hide. I had been on my own for 9 months already and all this commotion made me afraid. Then these humans took me from my cage into a box into a room where they made me feel better and they hugged me and loved me. I thought that this could be OK but I still was not sure about those humans.

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  My new Mom held me for weeks and gave me medicine and held me more. Slowly, I realized that she was never going to let me go anywhere else and she was always going to take care of me and that this was my place forever. Mom is the only person that I let pick me up and turn me upside down like she did when I was first here at the Zoo and very sick. She protects me from the other animals in the house (especially that mean Stella cat) and makes sure I have safe places to call my own. If that is not home, what is?

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?   Mom says that I am not the sharpest tack in the pack (whatever that means). Because I have feline herpes and not socialized until almost a year old, she thinks that it provided me with special powers, unlike other cats. For example, I don’t like cat litter so I don’t use the same toilet as the other cats. It took awhile for me to teach Mom that I will use weewee pads in my preferred spots and though I still overshoot them from time to time, I don’t think that’s bad, is it? Truly, I don’t think about much. Mom doesn’t get mad at me ever because she knows that I am special. I live primarily in the living/dining room and kitchen (where the yummy stuff is) and mostly Mom has made it safe so that my big fluffiness can’t get hurt, or break too many things. I don’t really understand the “oh no, now I’ve done it” thing because everything I do is purrfect, for a cat like me. It is all the other cats that get in trouble or try to get me into some, but I am special, and I know to run and hide when they do stupid stuff like knock over plants or face off with the little dog. Not me! 

 Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why? My Mom is the most important human in the house, as she says it should be. Everyone that lives here says that I am the most beautiful, sweet, giant white cat, they know and they all brush me (because I shed white stuff all year round) and pet me. I prefer Mom to all others but if one of my human family is sitting quietly on MY couch, I will talk to them and ask them for a brushing or a treat. Then usually I run away until Mom comes. I do like the big black dog, she is quiet too. I do my best to stay away from the pesky youngsters. Nine and Mini, who try to unthrone me from the top of the cat tree, or the blonde dog who chases me down the hall. The new little dog is smaller than I am, so I kind of think he is ok, but I am not sure yet.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  People thank that I am aloof because I am scared. If they would just be quiet I will come to them (maybe). I have a special sense that tells me when it is ok to come out of my hiding spots. I am a keen judge of character and Mom uses me as a barometer to see if the kid’s friends are worthy of being on my couch. I am a simple cat, with simple desires, if people would just be patient.




Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!

Spotlight Thursday – Meet Phoebe Maria Pilch

Spotlight Thursday

Welcome my friends to SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY.  This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better.  Some of them, you may already know.  We hope that you enjoy this series!


Name:  Phoebe Maria Pilch

Age:  14

Location:  Ware, MA

Web/Blog Page:  http://www.15andmeowing.com/

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  I knew right away they were 2 suckers, I mean nice people,  who would do anything for me.

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  As soon as they let me out of my carrier and I immediately made friends with the other cats, I knew this was my forever home.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?   I NEVER get in trouble. My brother, Sammy peed in Mom’s hair about a month ago so I can do whatever I want now and it won’t seem bad.

 Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  I have them both wrapped around my adorable paws and my Grammie too. I love my Grammie very much, she brings me lots of treats.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  My folks think I fight with Prancie when I am hungry, but I really just do it for fun.


Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!

Paw Time with Houdini

Barks and squeals was what was happening this week here at the Hotel Thompson.  In fact, we were *all* so excited.  We received a package from the other side of the world – barks!  It came from our friend Fozzie and the gang – Dinnermintz, Pickles, Forrest and Doc.  Of course, daddy made us all wait until mom got home from the worky place to open the huge box.

But when we did – I think mommy squealed almost louder than any of us.  Look at that beautiful picture in the upper right hand corner and the stunning post cards – oh my puppy heavens – mommy actually jumped for joy and danced around the kitchen.  Aren’t humans weird?

Then all of us anipals got things from the package and we took off to explore with them – Bacon got some delicious apple chips (daddy says they were good – he ate one you know for product control review).  I got a delicious chew stick – barks!  It was delicious!!  The purr things got some treats.  And daddy got a cookie from that awesome Yorkie tin – beautiful!!  Then afterwards, we all played with squeaky pig – not Bacon my silly friends – the pink piggy in the picture.

Fozzie you did way too much!  We thank you so very much and now mommy can work on the project she has planned for those beautiful post cards 🙂

Oh and I told you we played with the pink pig – here’s proof that we LOVE it.

Well that’s all for me my friends – yawns – I hope you had a wonderful week as well.  Happy weekend!

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon – 20131208-210953.jpgLife is so not fair dude.  Life has become so politically correct lately that no wants to do the things they were doing before because they feel they don’t have to.  Do you know what I mean?  This is me.  I told my human I needed to go for a walk.  What do they do?  They give me the pan and sweeper, told me to walk myself and to clean up after myself.  What?  Isn’t that what the humans are suppose to do?  Not anymore they said.  They said that it wasn’t their poop and I needed to clean it myself.  Enough with this politically correct stuff already.  What do you say?  Signed Swifter

Dear Swifter – Oh pal, I so get you.  People are taking life way too serious and need to lighten up a bit.  Life is too short to be in a constant battle of being politically correct.  I say give back that pan and sweeper to the humans.  You are not playing that game.  If they don’t agree, I think a few strategic poop bombs will work – snorts.  Let me know how it works out for you okay.


20131208-211029.jpg

Dear Bacon – I don’t get it.  Everyday at the zoo, I come out to greet the humans.  They all make Batman jokes.  I just don’t get and understand it.  My name is Ben not Batman.  Do you get it and if you do can you please explain this to me.  Shakes bear head.  Signed Ben

Dear Ben – Smiles and oinks.  You see my friend there is the superhero called Batman.  Batman’s symbol is like the one here to the right.  I wanted to show you this picture because I need you to see what it looks like.  Now, I need you to go look in the mirror at your handsome chest.  Do you see the resemblance?  That’s right – nods head.  You are Batbear!  Snorts with piggy laughter.

I think personally that is a HUGE compliment.  You have the same markings as a superhero.  That makes *you* a superhero my friend.  Think about that.  You have talent.  I say work it up for all it’s worth and have fun with your markings.

20131208-211057.jpg

Dear Bacon – squeaks!  For my birthday, all I asked for was one little thing. I wanted a Radio Flyer.  The small human here has one and they play with theirs all of the time.  It looks like so much fun.  I wanted one too.  That way the little human could pull me around the house and have fun.  The day of my birthday, I woke up and guess what?!  I had my Radio Flyer!  Have you ever been in one?  I feel like I can fly!  What do you think?  Do I make this Radio Flyer?  Signed Pig on Wheels

Dear Pig on Wheels – Awesome my friend.  You totally rock that look and look like you are having the time of your life.  I’ve never been in a Radio Flyer.  I think I may need to add one to my Christmas list this year.  I think  could get use to sitting in it and having people pull me all around.  Squeals with delight – carry on and have fun!

Dear Bacon – Is it working?  I saw the hunk of my dreams walk by.  I’ve heard on television that one way the humans attract their mates is to flip their hair.  I thought I would give it try.  What do you think? Yes or no?  Signed Fluffy

Dear Fluffy – hubba hubba my sweet.  I think it is so working.  You flipped that hair so seductively.  If you flipped it my way, I would be so taken with your beauty and wonder.  If your friend doesn’t catch on, let me know.  Call me okay.

.


20131208-211154.jpg

Dear Bacon – That stinking purr thing has ticked me off for the last time.  Every time I turn around, Mr. Giggles does something to *me* and then blames me for anything and everything when the humans are looking.  Mr. Giggles steals my puppy food, drinks my water and sleeps in my masters bed near his head.  Enough of this.  I’m a dog in charge.  Mr. Giggles is going to get it in three, two, one – BOOM.  Signed Mr. Pooky

Dear Pooky – Shakes piggy head.  First off my friend, I thought your humans were a little eccentric naming the kitty Mr. Giggles.  Then I saw your name, Mr. Pooky.  Not like there is anything wrong with that, it’s just unique.  Have you thought this through all of the way?  If you scare the giggles out of Mr. Giggles, rolls eyes, can you imagine what he is going to do to you for payback?  Cause you know it’s going to happen my friend.  I’d say rethink the situation and see possibly how you can set him up like he does to you.  Maybe take one of Mr. Giggles furballs and strategically place it on your master’s pillow.  That might be a better route.  Not that I would know anything like that or not.  Looks innocent and whistles.


Remember my friends, Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU.  Please keep sending me your letters and pictures to my email address.

Dear Bacon

20140111-200406.jpg

Dear Bacon – I’m just being friendly.  That’s it.  Really I am.  He looked so lonely in the cage.  I just thought I would pop in to say hey and you know give him a reassuring pat of assurance from me.  That’s it.  Really.  Signed Felix the Friendly Kitty

Dear Felix the Friendly Kitty – Sure buddy.  Whatever you say.  Just remember though that the proof is now in pictures.  That means no mistakes in your friendly ‘pats of assurance’.  Just sayin’ my friend.


 20140111-200419.jpgDear Bacon – I’ve heard you come from a long line of football players.  We know not players per say but footballs themselves – Barks!  Well, we gotta game going in our hood all of the time.  Next time you are in the area, join us.  And don’t worry, we won’t deflate the ball at all.  Signed Peyton, Tom, Eli and Brady

 Dear Peyton, Tom, Eli and Brady – What guys you are.  Thanks for the invite and I will definitely keep that in mind.  Can’t wait for the football season to start this year!.


 20140111-200430.jpgDear Bacon – There was this pot that mom had on the porch.  She grows beautiful things in it.  So I was thinking that I’m a puppy and maybe for me to grow into something beautiful, I would pot myself.  I jumped in and added water.  Is it working yet?  Signed Puppy Flower

Dear Puppy Flower – I don’t really think that is how it happens my friend.  But on the other hoof, you look really cute in that bucket.  And hey you got a bath out of it too.  I say just be you.  You are going to grow up soon enough.  And remember one final thought buddy.  You are already beautiful.

 .

..


 20140111-200439.jpgDear Bacon – Sometimes no matter how small you are, one needs to draw the line.  The humans put me in a wine glass.  What.were.they.thinking?  A wine glass.  I’m not a wine glass kind of pup.  I think I’m more of an oversized coffee cup kind of pooch.  What do you think?  Signed Small Barks

Dear Small Barks – I have to say my friend, either way I think you are cute in either a wine glass or a coffee cup.  I think you should play it for everything it’s worth.  Make the humans pay in so many different ways – extra treats, extra puppy chow. .


20140111-200452.jpg

Dear Bacon – I have to say a puppy power nap is sometimes the best thing you can do.  I highly recommend them any time during the day or night.  Take notes from me pal.  Don’t forget your blankie and pillow.  Signed Sleepy Town

Dear Sleepy Town – WOW!  You are the posted child for a puppy power nap my friend.  I love it and trust me.  I am so taking notes!

.


REMEMBER my friends – Dear Bacon issues can’t happen without YOU. Please remember to email me your picture and letters.
