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!
Age: 13 maybe – but ladies don’t always tell the truth

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents? It was scary. I was in a little cage with my baby boy in a room with dozens of other cats. It was noisy. This lady came and took me out of the cage and tried to cuddle me. I jumped down and hid behind the trash bin. She wouldn’t take no for an answer and came to take me home. She tried to adopt my baby boy too but someone else wanted him. I thought she was crazy but I kept an eye on her from my hiding places.
What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home? I got really sick right after I was adopted. I was hospitalized for a week and when she came to pick me up I knew I was going to stay at that place with fluffy beds and secret hiding places. She talked about big vet bills but I had no idea what that was.
What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home? When I first came home I was too sick to have the “spay” operation. Mom wanted to wait a few weeks until I was strong again but I went into heat and caterwauled all night. Yep, all night long. Jake, an older black cat who lived there, was terrified. He didn’t know what I wanted even though I flicked my tail and showed him my “goods.” He hid under the bed. Mom said he was neutered very young so he didn’t know the facts of life. A few nights of that and I was scheduled the next week!
Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why? Mom of course. Dad is the best masseuse but Mom spends more time with me and makes sure I’m happy.
What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you? I’m little, only 7 lbs. The other two cats here are 12 and 15 lbs. Most people don’t know that I am the alpha cat and rule the roost. If I’m not happy ain’t no one happy.
Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!

YAY! It’s Tuesday’s Time Warp Blog Hop. My friends Mollie and Alfie at http://www.molliesdogtreats.co.uk/ and my friend Easy at http://easyweimaraner.wordpress.com/ are hosting a Time Warp Blog Hop today. It’s all about posting pictures about when you were small and flash forwarded to today. What an awesome idea!
I’ve looked and looked through my baby albums and found one that touched my little piggy heart and one that is more current. I hope you enjoy them my friends!
This is me with my mommy when she adopted me at a mere three weeks old. This was about 2.5 years ago. Look how small I was! Can you believe all of that cuteness? Those little hooves, that little snout and that small pot belly? I think between 3 weeks and 6 weeks, the only time I was on all fours was when I was eating, sleeping or using the bathroom. Other than that, I was right there in mom’s arms the entire time being cradled and comforted.
Those were great days my friends. I was a little runt and didn’t think that I would find such a home with so much love. My two other brothers and sister had already been adopted out. But mom, she took one look at me from a message sent by my biological mom and she fell in love. And you know what? I fell in love when I saw her too. The first time she held me, I put my snout in her neckline and went right to sleep. It was love at first snouting.
This is me now. I’ve grown just a little bit. I’m still not too big that I can’t snuggle in my mom’s arms at night while we watch television. And trust me, she tells me that I’m not too big yet that she can’t pick me up when my alter ego, deviled ham, comes out.
This is one of the rare shots you will find of me outside in nature. I’m just not a nature kind of pig. I don’t care for the grass to touch my hooves. I know that seems odd and everything but I just don’t like it. I’ll tip toe around on the grass, run around a bit but I’m just not a big fan. What can I say? I’m not your average everyday kind of barn animal piggy.
Oh, I shouldn’t be the only one in my Time Warp Blog Hop. This is my mom today. Hey, I gotta share the love, right? If it wasn’t for her and her dream of always wanting an oinker, I probably wouldn’t be here entertaining you with my blog.
And thank you my friends for all of the kind comments yesterday. Mommy is no longer feeling ‘magenta’. She’s feeling happy – that’s a great and wonderful color!
Happy Time Warp Blog Hop my friends!
