Happy Birthday Hemi

20130624-194724.jpg

This post goes out to my brother Hemingway – Hemi for short. He is a lot of things here at the Hotel Thompson.

He is my brother.

He is my friend.

He is the master cat.

He is mom/dads oldest.

I talk about him a lot here on my blog. Mostly about him using his ginormous paw to slap me on the rump – snorts. But really, today is his birthday. Today he turns the big 14 years young. Happy birthday Hemi.

And just remember Hemi, with your age – snorts –

you might want to cut back on spanking this oinker.

Just sayin’

Oh friends, did you know that mommy/daddy adopted Hemi and his brother Tybee when they were three weeks old?  They barely had their eyes open and had just started walking – I guess you could say that was walking.  Their little tails were like a piece of yarn – 🙂  They had gotten picked up by Animal Control and taken to the shelter.  Mom and dad saved them both and brought them home.  They are such softies when it comes to us four legged animals, you know 🙂

 

 

And special thank you to Phenny across the pond who sent me and my brother Houdini some birthday goodies.  We are sending you lots of meow’s, hogs and snout kisses ❤

Spotlight Thursday – Meet Steinbeck and Hemingway

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:  Steinbeck and Hemingway

Age:  3 months and 6.5 years

Location:  Bloomington, Minnesota

Web/Blog Page:  http://www.twocatsviews.wordpress.com/

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  We only have a mom but I was so excited when I saw her come up to my cage at the Humane Society.  I was with some siblings but she spotted me right away.  We went into a room so we could play together.  Her girlfriend was with her and she took some pictures of us.  Both of them decided I was the perfect choice so she took me to my forever home.  

I was in the middle of a large room in a very large kennel.  When I saw mom walking towards me, I ran to the front of the cage to greet her.  She told the people she wanted me and they said she had to spend some time with me first.  I didn’t mind so when we went into a special room, the two of us played and I climbed all over mom.  She didn’t change her mind and told the Human Society people that she wanted me.  I sang the song of my people all the way home with her.  She said she drove lots and lots of miles to get me so I just sang how happy I was.

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  Mom let me out of the carrier and I knew instantly that it was my forever home.  There was a doggie who looked like me and she gave me welcoming greetings.  I used to sleep with her.  She was old and finally went over the Rainbow Bridge.  I still miss her.  

When I first got home, Mom kept me in her bedroom ‘cuz she wanted to introduce me to my big brother slowly.  After a few days when she was getting ready to go to work one morning, she decided to trust me and leave me loose.  That’s when I knew I was home.  I was able to explore and take naps all over the place.  I was finally able to keep my brother company.


What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?  
 Mom say’s I’m great at knocking things off of shelves, tables and desks.  When I want her attention, that’s the only way I can get it.  Mom says she’s had to redecorate ‘cuz she can’t have certain things displayed the way she would like.

I had an “ut oh” moment just the other day.  I pulled the runner off the entertainment center and the small lamp came crashing down.  I broke it.  I was sorry.

 Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  I have mom wrapped around my paws.  She lives with her brother and I’ve actually wormed my way into his heart too.  He likes to give me tummy rubs.

Oh, I have everyone wrapped around my paws!!  Just look at my face.  Who could resist?

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  Humans think I’m going to squash them if I jump on them ‘cuz I’m such a big kitty.  They don’t need to worry ‘cuz I only jump on mom and she’s getting used to it.

Humans think that because I’m so little I don’t know stuff.  I know lots of stuff and I keep learning more each day!  I learned my name quickly.  Sometimes though, I think my name is Steinbeck No!


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

Hemi and Daddy Bonding – Snorts

20130624-231939.jpg

To say that us animals control and walk all over the humans here at the Hotel Thompson is kind of an understatement.  Over the weekend, we all snuggled into the king size Select Comfort bed.  Hemi slept ‘with’ daddy.  Their setting is 100 – ha!  Me, Houdini and mom kind of like it a little softer.  Our setting is a 50.  You gotta love the Select Comfort!

20130624-231950.jpg

Notice Hemi’s position on TOP of daddy.  This is how he beds down.  Personally I think Hemi believes that daddy is his mattress.  He sleeps like this all of the time.  He often will reach his paw out and touch daddy on the face.  Sometimes, he will drift over for some mommy loving but we all know that Hemi is daddy’s little boy just like I’m mommy’s boy.  Humans are not the only ones that pick favorites – us animals do as well.  But to us, it’s a little different.  We know who we can wrap around our hooves and paws – 🙂 Would we do that?

20130626-075424.jpg

And you didn’t think that Hemi sleeps like this?  Just check out this bottom picture. The proof is in the picture.  He’s actually comfortable.  Touching dad’s face, his eyes closed and dreaming of chasing Journalist Rocky the Squirrel in the backyard.

But I have to ask you this – look at that paw?!  Do you understand what I mean now when I tell you it hurts when he slaps this little oinker on the fanny?  Piggy snorting with laughter!
