Dear Bacon

20140330-183817.jpg

Dear Bacon – Listen the water is fine my four legged pot bellied piggy.  Why don’t you come for a swim with me.  I’ll even teach you how to swim under the water.  I’m sure you will catch on fast.  What do you think?  Signed Mr. Friendly

Dear Mr. Friendly – Not that I don’t appreciate your well… friendness but I think I’ll pass.  For some reason, I think it’s better for this little oinker to stay on dry land, far away from the water and far, far away from your swimming lessons. Call it a premonition if you will.  But, carry on my friend and thank you… really.


20140330-183833.jpgDear Bacon – I see you – purr snicker.  I have my eyes on your activities good or bad.  I’m reporting back to that Evil Elf of yours Don Juan.  You just wait.  You’re going to get it when he comes out in November.  Signed The Watcher

Dear The Watcher – Really?!  It’s not bad enough that I have rogue elf that watches my every move, you’re going to as well?  Rolls piggy eyes and walks away.  This is so not fair in this oinker’s life.  Can’t we all just get along?  Snorts


 

20140330-183825.jpgDear Bacon – The nerve of our family vet.  Can you believe that (A) they had the nerve to come near my captains quarters with that proby thing and (B) they told my humans that *I* needed to go on a DIET?!  What in the world was he thinking?  Don’t my humans pay for his sound advice?  What kind of crap advice is this?  I think the look on my face tells you everything I think.  Signed Tiny

Dear Tiny – Oh dear.  That proby thing is awful.  It must be a torture device from centuries long ago.  Yep, that’s what I think.  And that look on your face.  Oh my.  You are certainly not happy.  And well… looks down at my pot belly.  I am one NOT to give any advice to you on that four lettered dirty word – D.I.E.T.  Shakes head – nope.  Not the one to do that at all my friend.


20140330-183858.jpg

Dear Bacon – I double kitty dare you to try this maneuver.  Heck, I triple meow dare you.  I dare you to put your back legs up over your head.  In fact if you can do this position, I will personally come over every day and give you a piggy massage – heck I’ll even clean up your room for you.  Signed Fear Factor Feline

Dear Fear Factor Feline – Really?!  That’s okay my furry friend.  That’s what I have my mommy for – massages and cleaning – snorts.  Let’s hope that cannon of yours doesn’t go off while you are bent legs over head.


 

20140330-183847.jpgDear Bacon – I hate it when I get into trouble here at my casa.  Can you believe that my humans make me face the couch and sit here in time out?  It’s so humiliating.  Signed Unhappy Pooch

Dear Unhappy Pooch – WOW my friend.  That is some look you have there facing your tomb of doom.  It’s just not right.  And to put you in this time out right in the middle of the living room where you can hear and see all of the fun activities going on around you.  Shakes piggy head and clicks tongue.  Nope, just not right.  I’m sorry pal.  Maybe when you come out of serving your time, you just ignore those humans.  Show them who is getting timeout there.  Don’t give them any affection.  None whatsoever… can you last like what five seconds?  Hang in there my bud!

Spotlight Thursday – Meet Twilight

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:  Twilight (or “Little One”) – But Shrimp calls me “Toast!”

Age:  About 7 months

Location:  Oregon, USA

Web/Blog Page:  http://cattitudechronicles.wordpress.com/  (When Shrimp’s sleeping)- but as soon as I’m old enough I’ll start my VERY OWN blog!

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents? These people ADORE ME! They’ll feed me FOREVER! (And I told myself to be EXTRA CUTE)!

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  When I showed up in a thunderstorm in their backyard, wet and muddy and starving and infested with fleas and the human almost cried and took me inside immediately and gave me a warm bath and cuddled me and fed me and said “Welcome to your new home, baby!” (And Shrimp growled and the human ignored it)!

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?   When I tried to cuddle up by the human in bed and Shrimp had A HISSY FIT!

 Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  BOTH of the humans! But especially Mom because she loves how I race her to the Keurig every morning and wait for her to brew her coffee and swipe at her while she does her workouts – and when she does push-ups and Pilates, I swipe at her hair (to keep the tangles out)!  She also loves that I don’t let Shrimp’s angry glares keep me from snuggling with her!

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  That I’m just a cute little kitty – I’m actually a tiger (I work for the government undercover so they removed most of my stripes)!
😺

Spotlight Thursday – Meet Sundae Keen

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:  Sundae Keen

Age:  7 years

Location:  Southeast Virginia

Web/Blog Page:  http://www.thesedaysofmine.com/

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents? My  mom came to the Humane Society alone. I heard her tell the ladies working there that she didn’t really care what color kitty adopted her, that she just wanted a lap kitty.  The volunteers took me out of my cage and handed me to my mom, and I immediately lay down in her lap.  She was hooked!

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  When I got to my new home, I had all the necessities: food, water, a litter box. But I could tell that my mom was concerned about me. I cried a lot the first few nights. And I heard my dad remind her that everything here was new to me. He said that I’d been used to living in a cage, and now I had free run of a big house, and that I would adjust in time. So I knew they both cared about me.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?   Sometimes I decide to run down our (long) hallway in the middle of the night and “sing the song of my people” as loudly as I can.  I don’t think my parents take too kindly to my running and singing, especially that time of night.

 Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why? Definitely my mom.  I’ve heard them say that the kitty they had before me (Beezy) was very docile, whereas I’m more of a little spitfire. I really think my dad would like me to be more gentle and loving.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?   Hmmm… that’s a tough question. I’m pretty good when we have company. But, I do have a bad habit of nipping people sometime when they’re playing with me. So, I guess the misconception would be that that I’m not going to bite. (I know: I need to work on that bad habit.)

Spotlight Thursday – Meet Gypsy Keen

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:  Gypsy Keen

Age:  3.5 years

Location:  Southeast Virginia

Web/Blog Page:  http://www.thesedaysofmine.com/

 

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  My parents discovered me behind their business when I was around 2 months old. My dad saw me first.  I was shivering and thin, and I just wound myself around his ankles and meowed at him.  He doesn’t know too much about kitties, so he was afraid to try to pick me up.  He called my mom on her cell phone (she was inside the building), and she came outside.  When she saw me, she immediately reached down and picked me up. She could tell I was friendly – and scared. She cuddled me and talked sweetly to me. I fell in love with both of them immediately. 

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  I just knew from the beginning.  They tried to determine if I belonged to someone: they put up flyers, called the vets’ offices and the animal shelters. But, the entire time, they were loving me and taking care of me.  After a few days, they decided that I was theirs and took me to the vet to be checked. Thankfully, I got a clean bill of health!

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?   Well, I have completely shredded all the office furniture….(used to be) nice leather chairs…. thankfully, my parents haven’t punished me.  And yes, they bought me a nice scratching post. But I still like the chairs.  Oh, and if anyone leaves the bathroom door open, I play in the toilet and then leave paw prints all over EVERYTHING. 

 Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why? Paws down, that would be my dad. And here’s why: I came to be their shop kitty in August, 2013. A few weeks later, my dad’s father became ill and passed away.  My dad still came to the shop everyday during the time, but sometimes, he wouldn’t really work. He’d sit in the office at his desk, and I could tell he really needed me. So I would climb up on his chest and lie there and just be there for him.  Our picture was even in the local newspaper (my mom sent it in).  I still lie on his chest sometimes, but I’m much bigger and heavier than I was then, so it’s not quite as comfortable for him. But he still likes for me to do it.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  When new customers come to their shop, they don’t realize that I am really the boss there.  My mom even bought a plaque for me that says: “Boss Lady”.

Spotlight Thursday – Meet Roxy and Tigerlino

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:  Roxy & Tigerlino (aka “The PURRfect Kitties”)

Age:  Roxy 10 and Tigerlino 7 years

Location:  Hmmm… good question!?! (*scratches head*) But it must be the land of fun, frolic and food since there’s plenty of that to be found here… 

Web/Blog Page:  https://purrfectkitties.wordpress.com/

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  Roxy: Yay! My very own servants!!! MOL.  Tigerlino: Ooh, look! New can openers! Let’s hope they serve tuna at their place…

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  Roxy: The humans had fancied my brother Romeo but then, when they picked me up I started purring like my life depended on it and human #1 said, „Ooh, I want this one!“   Tigerlino: When the humans took me home and gave me my very OWN bowl of food! That’s when I knew I was in HEAVEN!!

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?   Roxy: When I spilled the human’s coffee over her MacBook. But hey, she should look on it from the bright side. Now that this silly thing is gone she can spend her whole time playing with us…   Tigerlino: When I “accidently” knocked the Christmas tree over and ruined Christmas. How was I to know it wasn’t a new scratching post?

Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  Roxy & Tigerlino: BOTH!! They are easy to manipulate… MOL

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  Roxy: That just because I’m awake means I’m ready to do anything…   Tigerlino: That they are my owners (but you and I know better…;-) )

Spotlight Thursday – Meet Phoebe Maria Pilch

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:  Phoebe Maria Pilch

Age:  14

Location:  Ware, MA

Web/Blog Page:  http://www.15andmeowing.com/

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  I knew right away they were 2 suckers, I mean nice people,  who would do anything for me.

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  As soon as they let me out of my carrier and I immediately made friends with the other cats, I knew this was my forever home.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?   I NEVER get in trouble. My brother, Sammy peed in Mom’s hair about a month ago so I can do whatever I want now and it won’t seem bad.

 Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  I have them both wrapped around my adorable paws and my Grammie too. I love my Grammie very much, she brings me lots of treats.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  My folks think I fight with Prancie when I am hungry, but I really just do it for fun.
