Spotlight Thursday – Meet Hitchens and Sagan

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!

♥ FRIENDS – make sure you leave some messages.  Hitchens and Sagan will be checking in throughout the day and answering comments. ♥

Name:  Hitchens and Sagan Hamilton Pig White

Age:  3 years young and 6 months

Location:  Austin, Texas

Web/Blog Page:  I don’t have a blog anymore, I got way too busy eating grass.  But I will post to Instagram in between grass breaks! Stop on by!! @hitchensandsaganpigs

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  I was pretty scared at first but I quickly warmed up after I realized all mom and dad wanted to do was cuddle and I LOVE cuddling!

I was nervous at first but I quickly warmed up to them after Mom gave me a belly rub and dad gave me treats. Now all I want to do is cuddle and chase them around.  I love them so much!

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  When I was allowed to cuddle on the couch like the meowing and barking creatures.  Mom even gave me my own blanket to cuddle with on the couch and she gave me my own castle!!!

When I arrived home for the first time and I saw the giant yard!  I used to live in an apartment with the first family I was with.  I couldn’t run around, but now I do and I LOVE IT!  I love to chase and be chased by my brother Dexter.  I’m trying to be friends with the cats but they aren’t fans of me just yet.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?   I can only mention ONE?? The earliest one I can think of was when I was about 3 months old.  I REALLY wanted to cuddle on the couch with mom but she refused.  I even politely (mom says I was screaming) asked my grandma if I could cuddle with her, she said no too.  I got pretty upset so I decided to take a stack of papers that was on the coffee table shelf and carry it across the room.  Mom was upset and chased me away at first but then after a while she laughed and let me cuddle.

What are you talking about?  I’m a perfect angel!! I never EVER pee on the floor, or scream at the top of my piggy lungs in order to get attention.

 Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  I have both of them wrapped around my hoof.  Dad gives me treats throughout the day and mom gives me belly rubs as I’m drifting off to sleep.  There are some times when mom and I will have a fight but at the end of the day she always returns to rub my belly.  My plan is working perfectly.  PLOL!

Psh, everyone caters to my every need…I’m the baby!

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  That pigs are messy.  Yes we roll in mud, but it’s to keep cool as we eat grass.  Yes we like to rip up paper, but that’s to line our beds and to show the paper who’s boss.  Another one is that pigs smell…well I don’t know who doesn’t smell after a burp or fart, and for the record my burps and farts smell like roses.  And as a mini/teacup pig, people think I’ll always fit into a teacup or purse….I am proud to say I have a healthy 50 pound figure.  You can try to put me your purse (please do, so i don’t have to walk) but it will probably break..your back!

Just like my brother said that we will always remain small and that we don’t get attached too our families.  I was abandoned before my new mom and dad brought me home.  I was extremely attached to my first family and when they left me I was extremely depressed because I missed them.  Now I’m so much happier with my new family with lots of brothers to play with.



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

The Imagine Unicorn Award

I am honored and so well…speechless (which is rare for this little oinker).  I have been bestowed the The Imagine Unicorn Award from my friends over at  Thank you so very much!  I love awards and I love unicorns – what a match for me!  In fact, I secretly believe I have an unicorn in my magical back yard that poops the rainbow.  Sshh – don’t tell anyone, everyone will want one!

 With everything being kind of crazy here at the Hotel Thompson for October, I have my little head deep in research for my 31 Days of Spook and missing mom/dad with their vacation.  They gave me this award on Sunday and I just don’t know what to say but thank you!

The Imagine Unicorn Award was created “in order to recognize the bloggers who express their passion and dedication towards their blogs through their creativity”.  It has six basic rules…. thankfully none of which involve answering any silly questions….

  • Copy and paste The Imagine Award into your post. – check did that.
  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and link their blog page to your post. – check did that.
  • List 3-5 things about the nominator’s blog that you like (which you think are very creative). – see below 🙂
  • Nominate 5 other bloggers/blogs which you think display a fantastic use of creativity and imagination. – see below 🙂
  • Notify your nominees. – check will do
  • Display The Imagine Award on your blog’s award page. – check did that

There’s a lot that I can say about evilsquirrelsnest.  First off, it’s highly original.  Who knew that squirrels could be so popular and lovable?  We at the Hotel Thompson think about evilsquirrelsnest often…especially with having that pesky Journalist Rocky the Squirrel in our magical backyard always knocking on the door for a cup of nuts – snorts.  Bill’s cartoons are a hoot, always makes us smile and even makes us ponder things at times.  Whenever daddy is feeling down, he *always* goes to evilsquirrelsnest to make him smile.  It’s just the way it is.  In fact, I’ve even told some of my skype friends about the nest – it’s a must read.  And mom, well she kind of basks in the posts from times of way back when.  Snorts – it’s a hoot down memory lane my friends.  Thank you so much for the kind gesture of thinking of this little oinker with this award.  I’m touched.  

My nominees (in no particular order) – please accept my friends 🙂

  1. Easy at His mom and dad remind me a lot about my mom/dad.  In fact, I think they are brothers/sisters from a different mother on the other side of the earth – snorts.  They are all tossed a little… I think in a good way.
  2. Chloe at Come on – Chloe is a cow that travels and has field trips.  It reminds me so much of my Bashful!  And Chloe if you’re reading this and you should be – snorts – I didn’t get your email yet 😦 Send it to me at okay.  You KNOW what it’s about.
  3. Hitchens at What?  Come on – he’s an oinker like me.  You gotta love the originality of another pig and his life – snorts.
  4. Lori at Ducks – that’s right I said it – ducks.  And might I add, beautiful pictures and a friend from Sleepy Hollow 😉 winks
  5. Fozzie at I absolutely could not have a listing with my pal Fozzie from down under.  She always wishes me good night and I try to do her as well.  She tells tales of her animals – including gators, lizards oh my! She is a hoot of a friend and we loves her here at the Hotel Thompson.  In fact, we love all of our friends so much!!

Enjoy your award my friends – everyone deserves it!
