Dear Bacon

20131208-211338.jpg

Dear Bacon – Who says that the natural order of things in nature have to be that we don’t get along?  My name is Gull and this is my close pal Gator.

We’re like two peas in a pod.  We often play in the water like this.  Gator protects me from other things in the water and we have fun.  Can you believe that it actually blows peoples minds when they see us like this?  Signed Born to be Different

Dear Born to be Different – Hey my friends.  I think that is absolutely wonderful to have that kind of friendship.

I’m sure the other animals in the water look at you like a two piece snack from KFC but as long Gator is there to protect you – awesomesauce!

Dear Bacon – The humans.  They will pay for this get up.  I feel totally ridiculous.  The nerve to dress me up as some kind of twisted frog.  I think the look on my face tells you everything you need to know.  Do you have any ideas on how I can get the humans back?  Signed Feeling Froggy

Dear Feeling Froggy – WOW!  Now that is some sort of predicament my friend.  I feel you 100%.  Your humans really did have some nerve in dressing you like a Kermit want to be.  I don’t know whether to laugh or cry with you on that get up.  As far as pay back – evil piggy snorts.

The humans they do have to sleep at some point.  I’m sure you can think of so many different ways to bring down the wrath of Froggy upon them.  Just act innocent in whatever you decide.

P.S.  Can I borrow that outfit for Halloween?  Maybe I can snatch Miss Piggy with it.


Dear Bacon – 20131208-211436.jpgTalk about animal labor laws.  I often read about your life at the Hotel Thompson and how they make you ‘work for your food’ in a way.  Never complain again my friend.  My humans put me to work out in nature in concrete.  It’s a hard and tedious job… especially in this get up.  Help me please.  Signed Mason

Dear Mason – Oh snap.  Your humans weren’t playing any games were they my friend?  Bless your little heart.  Not only did they dress you but you have to wear those indestructible construction boots.  Shakes piggy head.  I’m so sorry pal.  I will *never* again complain about having to bring my dirty stuff to the laundry room.  Ever.

P.S.  Dad needs some help expanding the driveway.  When you get done with that project, can you help a human out?


Dear Bacon – 20131208-211508.jpgWhat?  Haven’t you ever seen a hamster with his lady working the pole?  Blondie is one of the best pole dancers out there.  I suggest this kind of get up for your bedroom pig.  You might get some girlfriends then.  HA!  Signed Boris

Dear Boris – OMP (oh my pig!)  My eyes!  What has been seen can not be unseen.  We really don’t need to see this my friend.  Although daddy was interested in that pole action, me and mom are not – snorts.  Ya’ll carry on in the privacy of your bedroom.  And don’t worry about me and girlfriends.  I have one 🙂

Dear Bacon

20130415-093642.jpg

Dear Bacon,

My master thinks he is so smart – bark bark.  He put things on the couch in order to make sure “I” wouldn’t get on the couch.  He forgot one thing though.  There is always the back of the couch – HA!  I’m not sure who was more surprised when he found me there – his face was priceless!  Signed One Smart K9

Dear One Smart K9,

That is too funny.  You are really smart.  I don’t know why the humans just don’t cater to us.  They know we are going to figure out the ways – You go pooch!


20130415-093732.jpgDear Bacon,

Does this look pitiful enough on my face?  This is my plead for, “Can you spare a cup of nuts my friend?”  It seems to work at times.  What do you think?  Signed Nut Collector

Dear Nut Collector,

AAWW that look is precious.  I know if you came to my door, my mom would let you have a cup of nuts… possible a safe dry place as well.  Bashful my pet rock gets that look sometimes when he wants things.  There’s just no way you can say no.


20130415-093759.jpg

Dear Bacon,

A lot of people are scared of me and I can’t understand why.  Don’t I have a likeable face?  I even try to smile more to make myself more personable.  Signed Smiling Liz

Dear Smiling Liz,

Your beautiful my friend.  It’s their loss if they can’t see that inner and outer beauty.  Keep smiling and doing your thing my friend!


20130415-093830.jpg

Dear Bacon,

Do you ever spend time in front of the mirror after you brush your teeth checking yourself out?  I just can’t help it.  This is my time when I practice my smile and winking my eyes.  Signed Vanity the Cat

Dear Vanity the Cat,

You know I do spend some time in front of the mirror.  I think we all need to at times.  I like to personally watch how I move my tail up and down and sideways.  You know cats move their tails with such elegance and I try to practice that to impress the purr things here.  Carry on!


20130415-093913.jpgDear Bacon,

Trouble in 3, 2 and 1.  The master caught us playing on the bed and thought it was hilarious.  You see, I’m not the one that initiates the trouble in this household – it’s the cat.  Always has been.  Do your cats cause this much trouble at the Hotel Thompson?  Signed Innocent Pooch

Dear Innocent Pooch,

Well, yes they do.  They are definitely the little instigators here at the Hotel Thompson.  They like to wiggle those long tails right in front of me to get my attention and then whine if I pull it.  And that Hemi with his extra digits, he likes to run by me and slap my little pig hiney.  Oh yeah, I can definitely relate to the trouble makers – snort.

What can I say? I’m a chick magnet. Every time I go through the park, the chicks follow me around. It kind of makes me feel like the Pied Piper but with chicks – bark. Signed The Dog

Dear The Dog,
Snorts. I have to admit that you are the dog my friend. Not only one or two chicks – you got the entire clan. Way to go. Don’t walk – strut – you are the dog!


Dear Bacon,20131208-204814.jpg

Oh surprise. Do you think the kids here will be able to guess what their new toy is? Rolls kitty eyes. This is only the beginning of the torture I’m in for. It’s time to get the nails out. Signed Surprise

Dear Surprised,

Let me start by saying yes it is awful that they ‘wrapped’ the kids new toy. But then again on the other hoof, that is so funny and cute. Just think how surprised the kids will be! Snorts. But I have to tell you, you have the patience unknown to me. They even wrapped your tail! You can’t really blame the humans. I mean, you did sit still long enough and allowed them to do this to you. Snorts


20131208-204839.jpg
Dear Bacon,
Meow. The humans have this game called Twister. They are in awe of it. What’s funny is the woman human bought this rug from the front room thinking it was just darling and it is. But all I can do is think of their Twister game. Purr thing on blue. Just wait until I stretch to the yellow or red dots. Insert evil purr. Signed Cat Twister

Dear Cat Twister,
OMP (Oh my pig!) You are so right. That rug does look like Twister in an off strange way. That is so cool. I think you should call in the dog, the humans and others in the neighborhood to play with you. It would be outrageous!


.20131208-204907.jpg
Dear Bacon,
You’re really not the only one with skills my friend. Sometimes when the humans leave up their laptop, I jump on for a few. These humans are twisted. I saw a picture of them on line and I guess my face shows you what I think. My eyes are burning. Signed Shocker

Dear Shocker,

Snorts. Sometimes my friends you should just simply leave things alone when the humans are involved. What is seen can not be unseen.

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon, I’m not saying that marriage is bad or anything but sometimes arrgghh. You see this is the missus on top of me. She fell asleep while sunning herself. There is no way I’m moving to wake her up. Not going to happen. Trust me, you would rather hang on for your dear life by your nails like me than to wake your other half. Signed Hanging On

Dear Hanging On,  It’s really sweet in a way my friend. Sure after a while you have no feelings in your legs and your nails feel like they are going to be ripped off, but at least you have your significant other. The one that makes you smile and gives you butterflies in your tummy. Just remember those things okay. Hang in there – snorts.


Dear Bacon – I don’t know why the humans keep looking at me and calling for Fluffy. Fluffy is not here. In fact, there’s nothing to see here at all. No fluffy… I just have a really nice comfortable pillow. Signed Bewildered

Dear Bewildered, Um…I’m going out on a limb here my friend but have you checked your so called ‘pillow’ lately? Does your pillow feel strange with fur, a heart beat and perhaps claws? You might want to double check that pillow – snorts.


Dear Bacon – Dude, you gotta help a dog out. My humans read your blog. For some reason, it intrigues them. So much so, that they want a pesky little oinker like you – no offense. To make matters worse, they dress me up and tell me to act like you. I need your help. Their strange obsession is getting on my last nerve. Help. Signed Pig Want A Be

.

Dear Pig Want A Be, No offense pal but you are just the cutest little dog in disguise that I’ve seen in some time. Heck, some would say that you are *almost* as cute as me… almost. I think your humans have a great sense of humor and they have great taste. What’s wrong in being a piggy? I can’t think of anything bad in my charmed life. Snorts.


Dear Bacon – Never trust your brother – EVER! I should have known he was up to no good. He walked through the house with this can in his mouth and told me to come outside to see something. Yep I saw something alrighty. Confetti strings covering my head. The nerve. He does have to sleep sometime, right? Signed Stupid and Covered

Dear Stupid and Covered,  Aaaww dude – it’s kind of funny. So colorful and bright. At least he took you outside so your humans wouldn’t fuss. I’m so sure you can think of something to get even. If not, give me a call. I might be able to help you out🙂


❤ Remember friends – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU.  Please keep emailing me your pictures and questions ❤

Spotlight Thursday – Meet Sophie

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:  Sophie

Age:  About 2 years old (a lady shouldn’t tell her age, right?)

Location:  Orange County, California

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

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  FOOD! I get real cat food! My mama found me outside a movie theater and I had been surviving on popcorn and whatever else I could find for the first 6 months of my life.

 Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  DAD! I love to lay on his chest and he sometimes lets me groom his hairy chin (I guess they call it a beard). I’m pretty sure I’m his favorite kitty in the whole wide world. He loves the way I coo and chirp when I want attention. I loaf on his chest all the time and he’s putty in my paws.

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  .When my big brother Dexter cuddled and groomed me for the first time. I’ve been his shadow ever since and I love him very much.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  About me personally? That I’m a big foodie. Yes, I like food. A lot. But really I just get so excited when I see food because I didn’t have it handed to me for the first part of my life. But I rarely ever finish my plate. And my big belly? That’s just that pouchy thing that some kitties get. But I don’t keep food in it.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?   Probably the time I trapped my head in a Kleenex box.  Luckily the Pops put the camera down after snapping a few shots to help me out.



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

Our Hearts are Broken

Our hearts are so broken here at the Hotel Thompson this morning.  We woke up to hear about the passing of our beloved brother Easy.  Please friends, join us in lighting a candle and sending massive hogs and snout kisses to Easy’s parents during this time.  Our hearts go out to them ❤

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon – Yo dude, we want to tell you something.  Don’t think that Tony Hawk and humans are the only one’s that can move a board.  We want you to know that us anipals can too.  This is me and my bro using our boards on the bathroom sink – which is an awesome area to do some rims off the side.  It’s way too cool dude.  You only have to make sure that you don’t do the rim on the toilet side cause if it goes over, ka-plunk into the depths of the tidy bowl friend.   So dude, the next time you go out on your deck or what have you, take in some air.  You won’t regret it!  Signed Mike and Ike

Dear Mike and Ike – Oh my piggy heavens.  That’s what I’m talking about!  Find the freedom of fun where you can.  I like the way you two think for sure.  I say burn those boards my friends and keep flying high… just watch out for the tank.


Dear Bacon – Shaking my head.  You always have that one brother that just doesn’t know how to act or fit in.  I’m sure you can relate with those two in your home.  Here we are and our human wanted to take pictures.  I’ve said time and time again, “Bro, don’t look at the camera.”  And what does he do?  Looks at the camera and grins like an idiot.  Shaking my head.  How can we be from the same family?  Signed I’m with Stupid

Dear I’m with Stupid – I know only too well of this problem my friend.  It seems like our brothers never want to do what we tell them – ever!  Houdini is the same way here.  He *always* has to turn on his baby charm and smile.  It’s really disgusting.  He’s such a camera hog – snorts with piggy laughter.


Dear Bacon –  They say that admission is the first step.  Okay here it goes.  I admit it.  I can’t hold my kibble.  I overate.  Why?  Because it was there and my belly grumbled for some.  Yes, I know it’s going to be there every day but you never know when the kibble will run dry and there won’t be anymore.  You never know – honestly!  I knew when I finished that I made a grave error of my ways.  My tummy started rumbling and I got the talk back to… you know when air escapes and makes sound out of your bum.  Those are weird.  Then I ran to the bathroom and threw my head into the throne… to bad that wasn’t the end it wanted to come out of.  My bad.  Have you ever felt this way?  Signed Overeaters Anonymous

Dear Overeaters Anonymous – Oh my friend.  I’m a hog.  I always feel like I should clean my bowl and eat some more.  But mom, she makes sure I don’t overdo it like you did.  And those sounds coming out of your bum – I like to refer to them as food ghosts coming back to haunt us…. then I blame them on my daddy.  Hey, it works.  Hope you feel better soon.

 


Dear Bacon –  There is this show on television that I always have to watch every single week.  It’s called Bad Dog!  If you haven’t seen it, you have to check it out.  It’s all about dogs that don’t have it together, that don’t know what side of their bread is buttered.  Do you know what I mean?  Well every week, I gather my favorites together – cheese – and watch my show.  I try to get my humans to watch with me.  So they will know what a wonderful pet I actually am.  You know to let them know how lucky they are to have me.  You get it.  So do you have to remind your humans that they are lucky to have you?  Signed Cheese Head

Dear Cheese Head – Yes.  Us anipals always need to remind our humans how lucky they are to have us and how they can’t live without us.  It’s the law of anipals… well it should be if it isn’t.  Without us, who would keep the humans in line.  Right?  I say carry on my friend and enjoy those cheese doodles… one of my favorites.


❤ Remember friends – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU.  Please continue to email me your pictures and letters.  ❤
