Spotlight Thursday – Meet Little Binky

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:  Little Binky

Age:  13

Location:  I live in the Netherlands, to be precisely in the south of Limburg

Web/Blog Page:  http://angelswhisper2011.wordpress.com/

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  When I met my Granny I thought: “I don’t know why, but I already Love you,” but when I met Grandpaw, I thought: “OMC… not another male person that probably doesn’t like me…and I kept distance for a while to see which way the wind would blown. 

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  The defining moment that I knew that I was in my furrever home was the day that Granny’s Angel left for Furryland and my two-feet brother said to Granny that it was allright for him that I could stay forever with Granny and Grandpaw, after he and his mother have found another house. That was so sweet of the little 5 year old boy and Granny was smiling between her tears…and so was I, because I knew that travelling time was over and I would be spoiled from head to toe…and heart to heart…

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?   The ‘now-I’ve-done-it moment’…let me think…deeper…deeper… Yes, got it! I think that was the moment that I didn’t came home on time and that Granny and Grandpaw were very worried about me, because Granny saw all scenarios passing by in her head, while I was just around the corner. I have two blogs about the grounding that came after Grounded Selfie and maybe you like to read them here.

 Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  I knew from the beginning that I saw Granny that she was the one that I can twist around my little paws in no time. There is nothing that I can’t do, it is all okay…except of the night walks, she is very strictly on that one now…no more night walks, not even in the garden… but she gives me loves, when I ask for it, even if it is in the middle of the night, even Grandpaw is jealous of that. She gives me to eat and when I don’t want to eat something that comes furresh out of the can, she opens another can and asks me if I prefer that one. She lets me sleep on her lap for the entire evening, until I have enough of lying on it… She stands up for me, when someone says I am..well…a little to…what was the word, Shoko…volumunuous, or something…or when I am to scared, or whatever feelings are involved, she always helps me out on it and tells others that everyone is just like they are, or, look at yourself! …so I feel always safe around my Granny and to show her that, I follow her wherever she goes, like a doggie, but, to be honest, I only do that to please her…MOL 😀 I’m busy to wrap Grandpaw around my paws now and I have to say, it is working already 

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  The biggest misconception that humans think about me is, that outsiders don’t see me as a fully fledged member of the family. People that say ‘it is just a cat’ or ‘it is not a baby’, probably don’t understand the meaning of life. I am not an ‘it’, I am a living creature, like you. I have a soul, like you. I have a charakter, like you and I show you how I feel, but also how you feel. When you look outside the world, you don’t have to give a name to the tree, flower, bird, cat or whatever, just be aware of what you see or feel and you will see me as a furriend, or a baby. I like to be pamperd and you like to give it to me, so what’s wrong to see me as a baby? I even have furriends with a stroller and they love it! Well, I guess I made my point on this one…next question…

 


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

So Much Sorrow

We here at the Hotel Thompson have some very sad news to share today my friends.  It is with such sorrow that we share the news that Mouse Girl (affectionately know here as OMG – oh Mouse Girl) passed away yesterday on Mother’s Day and is now over the Rainbow Bridge.

Mouse Girl was 10 years old and she picked us to live with 8 years ago at a local shelter.  She brought so much happiness and laughter to our house.  Mouse Girl was a Maine Coon kitty, was very shy to peeps she didn’t know and will so greatly be missed.

Her passing was sudden, she had not been showing any signs of being sick at all.  But things change so quickly and suddenly she is gone.  Bare with us our friends as we grieve here at the Hotel Thompson. We will be posting replies and back to visiting blogs soon. ♥  We appreciate all of the emails, messages, posts and phone calls.  Friends like you ROCK!

Banjo Music

2015/01/img_1671.jpg

Oh my friends.  There were some fun times this past weekend at the Hotel Thompson.  What kind do you ask?  Let’s put it this way, daddy has many, MANY talents.  So this post today is for two reasons.  Here we go.

To the person on my blog that mom/dad are meeting next month – daddy is practicing his banjo music.  Snorts and rolls with laughter.  We hope you get the meaning to that.

To everyone else here on the blogs that have no idea who mom/dad are meeting next month, here is your first clue.  BANJO MUSIC.

Snorts.  That’s all I can say right now.  It’s going to be a blast though from what I overhear – I mean from what mom/dad say.

Oh Dear

IMG_0066

There I was this past weekend, minding my own business, stretched out on mom’s legs and snoozing.  That’s when I heard something that was so astonishing… so unlike my humans… so weird.  I had to open my eyes and really pay attention to see if I was hearing right.  I couldn’t believe it.  I heard right.

OMP (oh my pig!)  My humans were actually talking to someone on the blogs here that *I* know about meeting up next month.  What?  Why am *I* the last one to hear about this?  And wait a minute… you are going to meet where?  A place I have never heard my parents talking about wanting to go.  But now this place has put a sparkle in mom’s eyes and a giddy up in dad’s voice.  I don’t get it.  I even heard mom making a hotel reservation with dad’s credit card.

And do you want to know the catcher?  They are not bringing me?  What is up with that?  We anipals are going to grandma’s that weekend so mom/dad can go meet one of *MY* friends on the blogs here. Oh, and don’t ask me who on the blogs here they are meeting.  Oh no.  I had to piggy promise not to squeal.

I’m so abused here at the Hotel Thompson.  I think I’ll go take another nap to try to get over this.  Stomps off annoyed.  I wonder what I can destroy in my room to show my dislike?

Bacon’s Show and Tell – Don’t Forget :)

REMINDER

Hello friends!!  As you know, I’ve been posting pictures of mom’s childhood toys and calling it Blast from the Past.  My good friend Christina  suggested I put together a posting that everyone can participate in with sharing a toy(s) from their past.

I am putting together Bacon’s Show and Tell scheduled for Monday, June 30th, 2014.  Post a blog this date to share a toy(s) from your childhood and tell us a little something about the toy.  What it meant to you.  Do you still have it?  When did you get it?  Do you have a picture of it?  Whatever you want to share.

Let’s see how many people we can get to post on June 30th, 2014 and participate in Bacon’s Show and Tell.  Mark your calendars and share with your friends – let’s relive some childhood memories!

NOTE:  You don’t have to still have your toy from your childhood.  Talk about what your favorite toy that you had, describe it and why it was your favorite 🙂

Many thanks to Christina for the suggestion!
