Giant THANK YOU

Oh my sweet friends.  Mommy wanted to take the moment to thank EVERYONE for such a wonderful birthday this year.  From all of the cards, the messages, phone calls and gifts – ya’ll rocked.  Mommy told me and daddy that this was the best birthday ever that she can remember.  And all of you my friends made it that way.

Special thanks to Nana who took mom out to dinner at a wonderful restaurant called Outback Steakhouse.  It was fantastic – so says mommy – not that this piggy would know because she didn’t bring me home anything… but it was her birthday so I’ll forgive her this time – snorts.

And special thanks to Shoki and Kali at Canadian Cats.  You know what your mom and dad did and she rocks!  You touched my mom’s heart more than you will ever know.  (And P.S.  I hope you are feeling better Kali ❤ )

Thanks to all of my friends for making mom’s day wonderful.  She has so many awesome memories!  Ya’ll are awesome!

Mom Get Your Beaver Off the Table

Oh dear friends.  This is exactly what I overheard daddy telling mommy.  “Get your beaver off the table.”  Then, I went and looked at mom’s pictures on her phone and find her beaver on the table!  I was shocked.  I was in awe.  I was almost piggy mortified.

But as I do sometimes, I get ahead of myself.  You see when mom/dad met up with Shoko and Kali’s parents in Alabama, they exchanged gifts.  One of the gifts was this beaver – and don’t worry Shoko and Kali’s mom has a matching one.  Snorts – astonishing I know!  Those two brought their matching beavers drinking and out to a restaurant!  Can you imagine what everyone thought when they put them on the table?

And mom’s little beaver was drinking.  There goes any sanity that might have been thought about that night.  And then… they named their beavers.  Rolls piggy eyes.  I guess if men can name their toys, girls can too.  Snorts with laughter.

Mom named hers Billy.  That sounds like a good old southern name doesn’t it?  Well – oinks – you know there has to be a story behind that name.  You see for the longest time mom/dad watched this television show called Billy the Exterminator.  Billy was one of the main guys on the show along with his mom, dad and brother.  In their business, they would go to houses and make unwanted animals go away like roaches, snakes, mice, squirrels, etc.  One time, his mom called Billy for a job on removing some beavers.  She gave him the information and told him, “Billy, go get that beaver.”  Now, there is just something so wrong with a mom telling her son, “Go get that beaver”.  Shakes piggy head in amusement.  Maybe it was the way she said it?  I’m not sure.  But it was so funny that daddy fell off the couch laughing.

So today my friends, I leave you with this cute little beaver I found on the internet.  Have a great Monday!

And P.S.  Thank you so much my friends Jean and Bill (Kali and Shoko’s parents) for the beaver.  This little guy has gotten around into a lot of places – don’t worry the camera has followed him – snorts.

The The Trip of a Lifetime :)

Oh my friends – SQUEALS.  Finally, we get a change to talk about THE trip.  You know the one where my humans ran off and left us anipals with Nana and met *my* friends and had a great weekend.  Yeah, that weekend trip – snorts and rolls with laughter.  You see my friends Kali and Shoko at The Canadian Cats sent an email to my mom asking her if her and dad wanted to meet up during their vacation.  Of course my mom jumped at the chance.  Finally the weekend came and mom shipped all of us up the street to Nana’s…. which might I add what happened at Nana’s that weekend stays at Nana’s.  🙂

So mom are coming from the Atlanta area and are using the good old GPS to get to Huntsville, Alabama.  Now daddy said that Mr. GPS took them on every pig trail to get there.  Now I kind of take offense to that.  I don’t do pig trails – I make them!

But something fascinating happened right before mom and dad took off – actually the night before.  Do you know it snowed here.  Well it didn’t here at the Hotel Thompson but up towards the mountain areas, it snowed and iced pretty bad.  See, this picture mom took from her window.  It’s icy over there on the mountain top.  And don’t worry about mom driving and using her camera.  Snorts – mom said that they got behind someone that wasn’t used to A – driving on winding, curving mountain roads and B – driving on ice.  So mom was practically stopped when she took this picture.  It was really pretty.

Mom said she should have taken a picture on dad’s side.  Why?  Because it was straight down off of the mountain!  I would have watered the back seat if I saw that.  Can you imagine?

 Here’s a closer picture of the frozen ice on the mountains.  It was outrageous!  The GPS had mom and dad going through the mountains then to the left dropping in Huntsville, Alabama.  The only ice and snow mom saw really was in the mountains.  Cool huh?  Scenic route full of curves and fun.

And below is a family picture of all of them – from left to right – Bill, Jean, daddy, mommy and yeah that’s the waiter Jordan beside mommy.  Snorts!  He was a cool guy.  And in fact, mommy is doing a food blog today about the restaurant and Jordan.  So check it out here.  You won’t believe the fun they had… or the trouble they found.  And stay tuned to mom’s food blogs for the next week or two.  Mom and dad hit a lot of great restaurants to and from Alabama.

Don’t you love this picture?  Mommy has it printed out and framed on her desk here at the Hotel Thompson in her office.  I just loved it too!  Mom and dad told me so many stories about the weekend.

And look at all of these wonderful goodies that came home with mom and dad that Bill and Jean gave them.  I especially love the Pork with An Attitude shirt.  How did they know I had an attitude – snorts.  And mom says the Canadian Collection are all kinds of chocolates.  She says they are fabulous.  She took them to work and has them on her desk in her candy bowl.  Yummers!

And below these – Houdini is playing with his quack bird or is it a Canadian goose?  Snorts!  Daddy got in trouble for playing with it inside of the house.  You see you hold the tail in one hand and the beak in the other then let go.  That thing can fly!  And of course, Houdini loves it!   The other picture of Houdini is him trying to take over the purr things cat toy.  He got caught and mom was fussing at him that it belonged to Hemi and Mouse Girl.  Busted little man!  There are a few more things that I will share next week.  I know you can’t wait.  It was definitely an awesome night and thank you so much Bill and Jean for the goodies.  I do wish we were closer!!

And the Winner Is?

And the winner of guessing correctly on WHO and WHERE my mom and dad are meeting is A DOUBLE WINNER!

Easy guessed WHO but JustJan guessed WHERE

CONGRATULATIONS YOU TWO WINNERS!

They are now the proud winners of the Squeal Like a Pig badge.  Take it and post it on your blog with pride my friends.

My mom/dad and Kali and Shoko’s parents from The Canadian Cats will be meeting up for a play date of some sorts.  There is no telling how much trouble these peeps will get into.  Please have bail money on standby my friends 🙂  Snorts!  I think it is fantastic that everyone was able to work together and make this date – especially since Kali and Shoko’s parents will be on an adventure of their own on vacation.

And trust me – there will be pictures.  I’ve made mom and dad promise to take pictures of everything and report back EVERYTHING so I can share.  I’m sure they will all have a snort of a good time.

And friends please pray and send good vibes all of our ways – they are calling for snow, sleet or a wintry mix in the neck of the woods we are meeting.  So, keep your fingers crossed that everything goes according to plans.

Dear Canadian Cat – Special Edition

September we are highlighting some of my friends who volunteered to help me out with my Dear Bacon issue. Today’s special edition is by my friends Kali and Shoko.  If you don’t know Kali and Shoko , you *must* go visit them and check them out on their blog The Canadian Cats.  Tell them that Bacon sent you.  Now, on to some great advice to help out our fellow anipals.

Dear Canadian Cats,
Oh dear furry kitty heavens. What has been seen can not be unseen. I saw my humans naked…without a stitch of clothing. Why would they do that? Can you explain that to me? Signed Scarred for Life

Dear Scarred,
Land sakes alive.  The horror, the horror!  I hope the picture you sent is of you and you’re not a kit.  If, you were a kit, you’d need extensive therapy immediately.  As to why they would wander around without their coverings….who knows.  Hoomins are not known for their bashfulness.  Perhaps they were airing out their private parts like we do.  You would think they would lay down and stick their feet in the air if that were the case.  They could have been headed to the watering closet…they take their coverings off for this.  Very curious that they put on stinky coverings after getting clean.  I’m sure they weren’t trying to scare you though.  They just don’t realize how repulsive there bodies are to us.  I suggest in the future, you cover your eyes with your paws and RUN at the first glimpse of their naked bodies..  This is not safe but if you run into a wall your problem is solved.  When you come to you’ll wonder if all this was just a nightmare.  Good luck my friend.

Dear Canadian Cats,
Water is the root of all evils my friends. Cats don’t need baths. We bathe ourselves. Why do the humans insist on dunking us – it’s like they want to baptist us. I don’t get it. Signed Walks on Water

Dear Walks on Water,
Water can be terrifying…especially when its not our idea to be anywhere near it.  Yikes!  I have a theory about hoomins sniffability and our own sensitive sniffer.  They are totally different.  When I am smelling beautiful and allow mom to get a whiff of my exciting scent…she says I stink.  How rude!!I’ll bet she wouldn’t like it if I took a sniff of her and ran away.  Wait!  I do that now.

Walks on, tell your mom how you feel and suggest dry shampoo. Your mom just brushes it in your fur and you’re good to go.  If, she still insists on baptizing you…then baptize her back again with lots of water.

Dear Canadian Cats,
Trust me my friends. Never play in the kitchen when the humans are doing what they call cooking. The dropped a cup of something on me. Now I look like Casper. Help. Signed Cat Ghost

Dear Cat Ghost,
Hahaha….you look funny!  Lighten up Cat Ghost.  You still are cute as a button.  Let’s take a bad situation and turn it around.  This is the time to go “trick or treating”.  You’ll clean up….so to speak.

Dear Canadian Cats,
Meow. What do I do for fun around the house? I strut around holding the dog treats in my mouth What? I look at it as helping the barky things out with their diet. Yeah. That’s it. Meow. Signed Dog Whisperer

Dear Dog Whisperer,
I like your style.  Up front and in everybody’s face.  My kind of friend.    However, the constant exposure of dog treats is positive reinforcement to your hoomin to get more treats for the dog not you.  This is not what you were aiming for.  So take those puporoni and stash them where no one will find them.  Grab a bag of your favourite treats and walk around the house.  It’s basic psychology my friend.  Now, get ready for lots of treats to come your way!

Dear Canadian Cats,
Who says us kitties don’t get even. This will teach that dog to mess with me again. Don’t worry. I didn’t cut him. But I did take this picture to threaten him on future escapades. What do you think? Signed Corleone Cat

Dear Corleone Cat,
I’d say you made him an “offer he can’t refuse.”  Look at his eyes CC.  Anyone can tell, he’s learned his lesson well.  So, leave the knife and take his treats.  Put the knife somewhere handy though and let him know he’s padding a thin line.

.

Remember my friends – Dear Bacon can’t happen without *you*.  Please continue to send your letters and questions to me here at the Hotel Thompson at baconthompson@gmail.com
