Dear Bacon – What kind of joke is this? Do you see these mysterious copy dog’s on my bed? Please – there is only *one* king cat in this family. End of discussion. These have got to be imposters! Signed Lord Kitty
Dear Lord Kitty – How dare them try to get in on your royalty. I say push them off the bed. Show them who’s boss. I don’t think it will hurt them – snorts.
Dear Bacon – I’m really practicing on my please look. I think I *almost* have it down pact. What do you think? Would you give in and give me what I was begging for? Signed Please Sir
Dear Please Sir – Oh my! Oliver Twist has nothing on you my friend.
I think you have the “please sir may I have another look” down to a T. Really I do. Perhaps, I a mere piggy should take lessons from you.
With that pose, you are certainly going to get anything you beg for!
Dear Bacon – Just me hanging out with my lady love on a Saturday night watching some television. The humans think we look funny. What say you our pal? Signed Two in Love
Dear Two in Love – I say you two look hopelessly in love with all of your hearts. You don’t look funny at all. Maybe the humans are jealous?
Dear Bacon – If there is a box, we must fit. You know how us purr things can be. Who cares what came in the box, we want to be in the box. This is me and my brother doing what we do best. Do you like boxes as much as we do? Signed Twin Kitties
Dear Twin Kitties – That is adorable my friends. It really is. You got you a condo going on right there in that picture – snorts. Me, I don’t like ‘sleeping’ in boxes but I do love destroying boxes. Just give me five minutes alone with a box. That’s all I ask. I will have the bestest of all times!

Dear Bacon – We are in LOVE. Can’t you tell by the grin on my face. Who says that love can’t be with everyone in the world. I’ve found the kitty for me! Signed Snuggable Loveable
Dear Snuggable Loveable – Sigh. Trust me my friends. I do know the full understanding of love. I have someone in my heart who is now a sweet angel above watching over me. My dear Nylablue was and still is the love of my little piggy life. I say enjoy while you can and cherish each and every day my friends! No regrets.
Dear Bacon – The master said fetch and we both went. Whoever brings the stick back gets a treat. Well we have learned to share and share alike – barks barks. We *both* brought the stick back. That should show the master huh? Signed Fun and Games
Dear Fun and Games – I like the way you think my friends. That is an awesome plan for the both of you to get a treat. I shall remember this in the future around here at the Hotel Thompson. Way to go my friends!
Dear Bacon – Please, please make this day that I get that despicable dog today that comes into my yard, takes hefty craps and harasses me to the ends of the earth. Just one little punch in the face from my front paws, or perhaps a back kick, would so make my day. Can you help me out and say that little prayer with me? Thanks so very much. Signed On My Knees
Dear On My Knees – Hey, I’m with you on this my friend. I can’t sit back when one of my friends needs some assistance. I’ll say that little prayer with you in hopes that you can get even with your little barky thing that visits you. The line has now been crossed and pay back is definitely in order. Take care and be quick about it when no one is looking.
Dear Bacon – Who doesn’t ❤ a great kitty condo? It’s the time of the year when the humans do weird things like bringing home lots of packages/boxes. What better time to make a kitty condo for all of us? Who cares about the junk inside of the boxes. Humans are weird. Signed the Three Amigos
Dear Three Amigos – There is something so amusing and wondrous about empty boxes. We love them here too at the Hotel Thompson. And yes you are so true in saying that humans are weird. I’m not sure why this time of the year it happens but it does. Enjoy those boxes there my friends. I know we have a couple of them here that we are working on destruction. It’s so much fun and so messy!
Remember my friends – keep your pictures and questions coming by emailing them to me. Thanks!

Something wicked has happened to me. I’m not sure what to think about this. It started out like usual and then it went far left really quick. I’m getting ahead of myself like I normally do so let me start from the beginning. This is what happened:
Yawn and stretch. Hhhmm – eyebrows straight up – that felt different. My stretch was more… well stretchy. Strange. It felt like I had long and fluid legs… not my usual short and stout ones. Maybe I’m losing weight – yeah that has to be it. Opens eyes and looks around my room. What is that insistent chirping noise? It’s coming from beyond the window in my bedroom. I stand up and stretch again. Man, I must be really losing weight. I felt my back, my legs and even my tail stretch on that one. There goes that chirping again. Dude, that’s got to stop.
I walked over to the window and that was another strange thing. My hooves on my bedroom floor didn’t make the regular clickety-clack sound. Strange but okay. I gotta eat some more. I looked up at the window ledge and didn’t think twice before I jumped up on it. WOW – I can jump! Wonder why I never did that before? I looked out the window and spotted those singing creatures outside. Those would so make a wonderful two piece snack. Snap, did I say that? And oh looky – there is Mr. Parson’s furry things. HISS! Double HISS! What in the world?! Where did that come from? Shakes head – things are weird this Friday.
I hear mom in the kitchen and the next thing I knew she was saying, “Frühstück”. I immediately jumped down and went down the hallway. Hey, I’m hungry for some breakfast. I hope she made tuna. I then stopped immediately in my tracks. What?! How did I know German? And tuna for breakfast? Today is strange.
I continued to the kitchen and that’s when weird became super weird. I walked up to mom and swished my body against her legs and bit her ankle. What in the world?! Mom started fussing at me and I started talking back to her. What? I don’t do that. I ate my breakfast and then spied an empty box in the living room. Oh squeal – this is my lucky day! I looked at mom and made one last meow at her and went in the front room jumping in the box. What in the heck just happened? I meowed and jumped in a box. WHAT?! Something is definitely wrong. I ran to my bedroom and looked in the mirror. Blinked several times and shook myself. I must still be dreaming. There is no way this can be real. I’m Tigerlino?! Oh dear, that must have been some bad strawberries I had last night. I can’t be a boy kitty. No way! No wonder I could jump. This can’t be happening. A nap. That’s what I need – a power nap.
So Diary. I thought it was just a dream. All I had to do was go back to sleep and finish this dream. That’s it. I’m a pig. I’m not a cat. No way! So the power nap commenced. I woke up after an hour or so and just *knew* it would be better… so I thought. This is what happened then:
Slowly I started to wake. It felt funny. It didn’t feel like my soft bed. This felt like paper. I looked underneath me and somehow I had fell asleep on the newspapers. Ha – I guess that was my way of keeping on top of the current events. I went to stand and tripped over my two front feet – clumsy me. I stretched and then I was off to look for the ladies room. I found it and chattered until I got some privacy. That’s when I smelled the coffee from mom. She was at the fridge getting some of that delicious evaporated milk for her warm cup. I walked over and pleaded by going in and out of her legs and talking to her until she caved. She fixed me a little bowl and it was pure heaven! The only thing that could have made this better was some strawberry yogurt. Licks lips and starts to clean myself. Oh snap! I didn’t know I could bring my back leg up over my head?! Oh dear heavens – call Circus Soleil – this she kitty has skills!
What? What did I just say?! Oh my, something is very wrong. What is mommy doing now? Oh Himmel! Here comes that monster in the closet. Screech! and runs off to the bedroom to hide under the bed. I’m shaking. I’m scared. That monster in the closet is like a scary movie waiting to happen!
But wait a minute. Why am I hiding under the bed and still speaking German?! I keep repeating to myself, “This can’t be real. This can’t be real.” I slowly crawl out from underneath the bed and look in the mirror. Holy bat kitty – look at that sexy purr thing – wolf whistles. Wait a minute, that sexy purr thing whistled back at me. I move my arm and she moved her arm. Oh no. Oh no. I finally looked down at my feet. Oh.good.Lord. I’m Roxy now? What in the world have we done? What happened?
Diary, I’m trying to remember last night. I remember talking to Tigerlino and Roxy before going to bed. We were talking about how each of us live throughout the day at our homes. Uh-oh… is this Freaky Friday?! I lay down and close my eyes trying to concentrate. When I open them, I’ll be fine. This is just a dream. You know like how when mom sleep walks. Yeah, that’s it. It has to be it. I’m going to count to 10, open my eyes and look down. Everything will be fine. Really. I *just* know it.
OH DEAR HEAVENS – Call Dr. Phil. Call Oprah. Call the Vet. I’m A CAT!?!

What? You know at Old McDonald’s farm, it gets hot during the summer months. This is a picture of what the old man himself helped us out with last year. He gave us all tubes and let us sit and relax down our little lake on the property. It was a ball! You come visit and I’m sure Old McDonald will be glad to do the same for you. Signed Billy the Kid
Dear Billy the Kid,
OMP (oh my pig!) That looks like so much fun! I will definitely get with mom and see if I can come over for a visit this summer. Heck, I want to tube down the lake myself for some fun… as long as there are no alligators, crocodiles, anacondas, piranhas or sea monsters. Other than that, I’m so there 🙂

Just the facts little guy. Nothing but the facts. We’ve been watching too many repeats of the movies Men in Black. Don’t ask me which is which. We just like to dress like Kay and Jay. You know, just for fun and giggles. The neighborhood doesn’t know how to act when we roll into it – bark. What do you think? Do you like to dress up like any of your favorite guys? Signed Kay/Jay
Dear Kay and Jay,
Oh dudes – I love the look! That is so neat. I’ve seen those movies and ya’ll kind of look just like the two. I think it’s the ties and sunglasses. I would love to roam around in my costume too. I secretly want to be a piggy super hero. I keep asking mom to make me a cape. I know with a cape, this little piggy would have special powers and be able to fly. Stay cool barky things!
This little pup couldn’t take it and fell asleep. When I woke up, there was the hunny jar near me and I was passed out. I don’t know what happened and I don’t know why it’s so funny. The humans keep laughing. Can you explain? Signed Pup Dog
Dear Pup Dog,
Snorts – it is kind of funny little man. Your humans are really playing with you. It’s cute. You need to ask the humans to read you the story of Winnie the Pooh. You look like Pooh. He liked his hunny. No, that’s wrong. He LOVED his hunny. Hey, I would keep the costume for Halloween. You’ll get lots of candy!
It doesn’t matter what kind of cat you are, we love boxes. It’s that simple. We will get in them and play with them. I just wanted to let you know. Signed Kitty Box
Dear Kitty Box,
I’m not hating you on that. I know the purr things here at the Hotel Thompson love to play with their boxes all of the time. Mom/dad area always asking them why buy little purr thing presents when you can just give them the box. Shrugs shoulders. It’s a kitty thing. I completely understand. I tried to do the box thing too. I didn’t get it. I destroyed the box in less than five minutes. Now that’s my fun time! Enjoy the box my friend!
I know the purr things like their boxes buy I prefer daddy’s guitar case. While he plays, I crawl in there and the music puts me to sleep. It’s actually more comfortable than it looks. Does your human have a guitar case for you to try this? Signed Squishy
You do look most uncomfortable. I think I’m going to let you call this one and let you crawl in. Dad does have a couple of cases but looking at this body, there is no way I will fit in there. I don’t care how much I try. Sleep on my friend!
With summer comes doggy camp. I thought I would snap this picture of all of us on the bus headed to camp for the week. It’s a ball! We get to do lots of neat things and have fun. There really isn’t any time to miss the humans. Do you get to go to camp? Signed Campdoggers
That looks like so much fun! As far as I get to camp is when I go to nana’s for a couple of days. She always fattens me up so I can’t oink. 🙂 It’s fun and you know what they say. What happens at nana’s, stays at nana’s! Have fun at camp!

I so couldn’t help blogging these cat finds. I read them and they so reminded me of my play things – the purr creations. I can’t tell you how many times I have seen them play with a simple box for HOURS! Did you hear me correctly – HOURS! And then they fight over who is going to play with it the most and sleep in it! It doesn’t matter if mom or dad buys them the most expensive toy, they would rather play with the empty box. It amazes me. Of course, these two purr things in my house have also been known to chase their tails like dogs. Now, that is a sight worth watching. Mom should put them on YouTube for your amusement. I’m nothing compared to that kind of comedy.
AND if you have a purr thing or are a purr thing, have you ever given them a green olive? Mom gives them to our purr things and its like they are drug enhanced with that thing. They roll all over the floor purring and groaning. I don’t get it. I’ve had an olive. It didn’t do that to me. You?
