So You’ve Got What!?

What the cream cheese?!   I’m serious.  My mom and dad do not find trouble.  Trouble finds them.  I’m serious.  You don’t believe me?  Okay.  Let me show you.

This is exhibit A.  This is a real book in the book store written by Ira Alterman. You see it was all innocent.  Mom and dad went to a vintage book store to find us anipals some new reading material for our bedtime stories.  That is when dad found this book.  Mom and dad had a fit and laughed like little kids.  I mean I don’t know what the big deal is really.

And no they didn’t buy the book.  Can you believe it was $100.00?!  Mom said they could keep the fat pussy.  Snorts!

What at is the craziest book title you have ever seen?

Spotlight Thursday – Meet General U.S. Grant and General W.T. Sherman

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:  General U. S. Grant and General W. T. Sherman

Age:  7 and 5 months

Location:  Southern California USA

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

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  We came from the same cattery Rhea and Davout came from, although Grant is a British Shorthair. He seemed nice, but Sherman was coming down with a cold and sneezed a few times on the trip from San Diego.  Both were very good and brave.

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  We had a different safe room to start than the others had, since Anna has the old one. It has fewer cubbies, but there is a big wood desk you can run under and feel safe. We took to it right away, and soon met Rhea and Davout and like them fine. Sometimes we sleep in safe corners around the house but are coming out.  Grant likes to rub against everyone and Rhea sometimes gives him a swat to make him stop, but he’s working on her patience.  Sherman likes to purr when held, but has things to see and won’t hang out with you for long.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?   Neither boy has done anything bad or scary. Anna and her hissing doesn’t bother them when they invade her room, but Davout will sometimes pin them down by the scruff to keep them out of her room and upsetting her.  He does this to Rhea too.

 Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  Grant tries to beg for extra meals and since they both are growing boys they often get one. Mostly Grant just watches Dad and both follow him around to see what he’s doing.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  Humans are still learning about us like we are learning about them.

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon – Hey there.  Our names are Chill and Squeal.  We are pleased to meet you piggy.  We would love to meet you one day and have some fun. It sounds like we have a lot in common – play, eating, hiding, eating, rolling around, eating, hibernating until Spring, eating.  See, don’t you think?  And don’t worry about Chill’s sharp teeth in his picture.  He doesn’t use them much.  Signed Chill and Squeal

Dear Chill and Squeal – Well don’t ya’ll look like hospitality charm.  I say if you are in the area, check me out.  I’m all for new adventures – especially when eating is involved.  Perhaps we can give the purr thing here Hemi a run for their money.  Just sayin’.  And what cute little sweaters – adorable!


Dear Bacon -ssshh – don’t say a word.  We are playing hide and go seek from the purr things.  I think we found *the* spot.  We have been under here for almost two hours and the purr things haven’t even been in the room.  Awesome huh?  Signed Hide and Seek

Dear Hide and Seek –  Playing with the purr things, huh?  First, let me commend you on your hiding spot.  It is most excellent indeed.  Secondly, let me tell you something about pesky purr things.  They put you up to hide – are you ready for this? – to get rid of you.  And to think, they succeeded for two hours in not having you around.  My friends, this calls for payback.  Go hide their kitty boxes.  I dare say *that* would be the ultimate pay back in hide and seek.  And maybe that would teach them not to mess with the dogs!.


Dear Bacon – I just had *that* surgery where the aliens came down and kidnapped my best friends if you know what I mean.  The only great thing is they sent me home all drugged… which I highly recommend.  Thank goodness I read about this procedure from when your Houdini had his so I knew what to expect from the alien invasion.  Dude, those little green guys can be vicious can’t they?  Signed I’m a Happy Dog

Dear I’m a Happy Dog –  Happy huh?  I know that’s the medicine talking pal.  Just think in a couple of days, the aliens will have erased all of this pain and discomfort from your mind.  Until then, enjoy the drugs 🙂


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

Spotlight Thursday – Meet Anna Comnena

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:  Anna Comnena

Age:  8 and a half years

Location:  Southern California USA

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

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  I had been abandoned by my family to a shelter. First they had a kid that abused me, then there were lots of cats in the shelter that worried me. I had a special place by a flower I liked, the picture on the internet was taken there and that’s where I stayed.  When they took me away across the yard for introductions, I was polite but soon worried that some cat would take my spot away so I went right back to it.

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  He put me in the same room the Rhea and Davout stayed. I loved it! So big! Dad soon learned not to put his hand over my head or I would swat it hard, but since I have no claws there it didn’t hurt so I’d snap with teeth too. After some learning, I learned to trust him enough to stop that.  After a time, I started to explore but Rhea and Davout coming close made me hiss at them over and over and run back to my room.  If they come in I get up high and hiss at them.  After a while Rhea started to chase me back to my room and we would fight, so the door is usually closed. I purr and purr when Dad comes to visit, but if I think another cat is outside the door. I start to fret and get upset.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?   I always do the same thing and never change much, except I’m not as afraid of people as I was before.

 Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  I have a room of my own, with lots of safe cubbies to sleep in and a window. That has to count.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  That I am extremely stubborn. I am way more stubborn than that.

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon – This is my big brother Hercules.  Every day, he lets me sleep on him.  He protects me and keeps me warm.  Do you have a Hercules at the Hotel Thompson that does that for you?  Signed Tiny the Piggy

Dear Tiny the Piggy – That is totally awesome that you have a friend like Hercules.  I don’t have a Hercules but mommy does kind of do for me what he does for you.  It’s totally awesome to have that kind of relationship.  Take care of you my little porky friend!


Dear Bacon – I feel pretty – so pretty.  Sometimes you just have to stop in life, lay down and smell the daisies.  These are some of my favorite moments.  You ever get to do this?  Signed Pondering Bear

Dear Pondering Bear – You’ve got a point there my friend.  Life does go really fast sometimes and you need to stop and smell the daises… which happen to be my mom’s favorites.  It’s good to take a breath and remember what you have and who you are. I say continue on being pretty my friend.  Enjoy the smell of the daisy and the heat from the sun.


Dear Bacon – All aboard the school bus – woof.  My humans found this party bus outfit and got it for me.  I’m kind of digging it.  You want to come aboard the party bus little guy?  Signed Corki in Charge

Dear Corki in Charge – That is totally awesome!  I absolutely love the little friends you have in your bus.  It does look like a party bus too.  Beep-beep Let’s have some fun my friend.  Everyone sing with me now, “The wheels on the bus go round and round.  The people on the bus go up and down.  The driver on the bus says  move on back.”


Dear Bacon -Can you believe that the humans make me carry my own back pack when we go out for day trips?  Why do I have to carry my diaper bag?  Can’t they?  Signed Tyke

Dear Tyke – Aaww – you really cute with your back pack my friend.  It looks like it was just made for you.  There’s no worries on carrying it.  Sometimes my mom makes me carry my pack with me as well.  I look at it as helping her out.  Thing of it that way as to what a big bunny you are now to be helping out the humans.  That’s awesome!  And I’ll tell you something.  When I carry mine, mom usually puts me some treats in there.  That’s always a good thing!


❤ Remember friends – keep email me your pictures and letters for submissions.  Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU. ❤

Spotlight Thursday – Meet Marshal Davout

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:  Marshal Davout

Age:  3 and a half years

Location:  Southern California USA

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

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  Too scared to think. I don’t handle car trips or new things well.  Still don’t.

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  After a little I got braver, and Rhea made friends with me in our room while we took some medicine. But in a while, we got out to explore the whole house and met the two Old Guy cats (Julius and Gus).  I wasn’t scared of them and they didn’t get mad at me at all when I went downstairs to explore – before Rhea got up the courage to come too.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?   When Uncle Julius was a tiny kitten, he fell through the railing upstairs above the living room and fell. He was OK. Dad put up a cardboard cover along the railing to keep us from doing it…and I climbed it and fell down too.  I wasn’t hurt either.

 Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  I’m not good at making people do things. I sometimes ask to go out back but it has been to rainy recently.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  That Rhea is the boss of me.  I let her take the lead mostly, but when she does bad stuff I’m still the BIG brother.
