Cuddle Up Day

Today, January 6th, is a special day.  It is Cuddle Up Day.  Doesn’t that just sound wonderful?  It’s cold outside, make a fire and cuddle up for some snuggles.  And, you don’t have to cuddle with someone to appreciate this day.  Cuddle up in your favorite chair in front of that fireplace, pop in a movie, relax and enjoy your time.  Bring out one of your favorite stuffed animals – I’ve seen Bacon’s mom do that.  And hey, speaking of Bacon – cuddle up to your favorite pet.  I know Bacon will get his share of cuddles today.. as well as Houdini… as well as Hemi… as well as Mouse Girl 🙂

Have a great cuddle day my friends.  I’ll be back soon!

Festival of Sleep Day

I’m back!  Hi my friends – it’s Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here.  I’ve been out on holiday for a while.  You know – busy, busy, busy collecting the nuts for the winter for my family.  Did you miss me?  I hope so.  I’ve got some great articles coming up for 2015 concerning all of the unique holidays that you probably didn’t know existed.

Today, January 3rd, is a special day.  It is the Festival of Sleep Day.  I think today is a day that we can all wrap ourselves around and snuggle down for some rest.  The holidays are far behind us now.  All of the rush is done with and it is time to get plenty of rest.  Take you a power nap, hibernate for a few hours, sleep in before work, doze while reading a book – just get plenty of rest!

Enjoy the day my friends.  I’ll be back soon!

Dear Tigerlino and Roxy – SPECIAL ISSUE

Greetings my dear friends!  This week, we have another great and wonderful guest helping us out with my Dear Bacon issue.  This week, my sweet friends Tigerlino and Roxy are stepping in for me to do a special edition of Dear Tigerlino and Roxy.  Be sure to visit them at their blog and check them out – let them know what a great job they did – thanks Tigerlino and Roxy!!

Dear Tigerlino and Roxy,
Uh-oh. This doesn’t appear to be how the humans lay in this contraption. Sparky is underneath checking out what happened. Secretly I think he’s laughing at me. I jumped on top of this trickery and my legs continued south. Can you help a dog out? Signed Stuck

Dear Stuck,
um… we’re not sure what that thing is for but you’re absolutely right… that’s probably not how you use it. But hey, look on the bright side. If you get tired now, you won’t have to lie down to take a nap… you can just hang in there. And yes, it does look as if Sparky is secretely laughing at ya! But maybe you can get even by asking him to join you on that thing??? He won’t be laughing anymore once he’s stuck there too!  As for helping you out… we’re not sure what advice to give you. Hmmm… are you, by any chance, ticklish? Maybe if Sparky tickles your paws, you’ll jump up so high that you’ll fly right out of your trap? On second thought, that’s probably not the best idea. You’d probably fall right back down on that thing and get stuck again. But don’t despair, buddy… we’re trying to figure something out, okay? So just hang on…xoxo Tigerlino & Roxy

Dear Tigerlino and Roxy,
Do you know what is more fun than rolling around in the mud? Of course it would be playing in a bundle of straw. I love hiding in the straw and then jumping out snorting to humans that pass my way. Some of them can jump pretty high. Have you ever done this? Signed Pop Goes the Piggy

Dear Pop Goes the Piggy,
We’ve never done this before but it sounds like a lot of fun! Do you think that works with dogs too? We’d love to give the neighbor’s dogs a fright. Do you think they can jump as high as the humans? Or even higher??? 😉  xoxo Tigerlino & Roxy

20140618-090440-32680709.jpg
Dear Tigerlino and Roxy,
Oh it’ll be fun he said. Just look over the edge at the crawly thing. You can’t possibly get hurt. Yep those were his last words before he pushed me over the edge like Humpty Dumpty. How can I get even. Can you help me out with that? Signed Too Close to the Edge

Dear Too Close to the Edge,
Why that little traitor! Let’s give him a taste of his own medicine. Why don’t you tell him that that crawly little thing was in fact a super yummy tuna treat and that you have found even more of them hidden in a mound?! And that you’d be happy to lend a helping *cough cough* pushing *cough cough* paw to explore the mound (housed by angry fire ants just waiting to take him on for disturbing their home…) How about that?! 😉  xoxo Roxy & Tigerlino

Dear Tigerlino and Roxy,
Don’t you love my new shirt? You want one don’t you? Signed Bark Humor

Dear Bark Humor,
Oh My Gosh! Why are you not wearing any pants? Did the cat rip them apart? Or did you lose them in a poker game or something? But hey, don’t worry! If you smile big enough, no one will notice that you’re… um… nude… down there…  xoxo Roxy & Tigerlino

P.S. Where can we get one of those shirts???

Dear Tigerlino and Roxy,
Meow. That should fix the humans for not giving me any snacks before they went to bed. Just wait until they go to potty now. Meow. Signed Payback

Dear Payback,
Yep, that’s purrfect… for a start. You could also shred the drapes, or the couch, or the carpet, or the wallpaper. And if the humans have a fit, tell them that you were just doing a little redecorating. Nothing wrong with that, right?  Oh, and you could also put a nice hairball on the human’s pillow…that’s pretty fun too! If you need more advice on how to get even with the humans, just let us know. Our „Get Even with the Humans Revenge List“ is endlessly long and getting longer as we speak…Have fun, sweetie! Meow!  xoxo Tigerlino & Roxy

Pecking Order at the Hotel Thompson

I’ve been telling you that we need to discuss the pecking order here at the Hotel Thompson.  Daddy took a nap on the floor – you see who walks all over him, right?  That’s Hemi.  Hemi thinks he is the head of the pecking order.  Okay, who am I trying to convince?  With his humongous paws, he is on the top of the pecking order… especially when he swats me in the fanny with those paws.

So, us anipals walk all over the humans here at the Hotel Thompson.  What else is new?  Snorts.  It’s the way it is.  They may pay the mortgage, but we allow them to stay here as staff to us.  It’s what we do.  Anyone else with us?

Dear Bacon – Sleepy Hollow Special

20130428-204420.jpg

Dear Bacon,

There’s just so much in my little life that I don’t want to miss.  I just don’t have time to sleep.  I might miss something.  What am I to do?  Signed Sleepy Pooch

Dear Sleepy Pooch,

Oh little fellow.  You have to sleep.  You’re not going to miss anything.  You need to sleep to grow as big as you can.  Everything will still be there waiting for you to explore the next day.  Happy dreams my little friend.

.

Dear Bacon,

Do you ever just have one of those mornings when you just can’t get out of bed.  I really tried this morning.  It didn’t work out so much for me.  I just fell over backwards and went back to sleep.  Signed Backward Pup

Dear Backward Pup,

AAWW – you’re just too cute there my friend.  I really don’t have those kinds of mornings.  My pot belly won’t allow it.  It has needs and when it is time for food, I’m up and eating.  Now afterwards, oh yeah.  My bed calls me to come back to take a little nap.  Sleep on my friend.

.

Dear Bacon,

Sometimes you just have to curl up wherever you are and call it nap time.  It doesn’t matter where.  You feel like this?  Signed Treecat

Dear Treecat,

Well, if you fit you must sit and sleep.  I’ve been known to crash on the front room floor once or twice.  Sometimes the Sandman just hits you and you have to go down.

.

20130428-204457.jpg

Dear Bacon,

I didn’t fall down.  There’s no way I would do that.  The floor actually came up and hit me.  After that, I just had to take a nap.  It just happened.  What can I say?  Signed Carpet Cat

Dear Carpet Cat,

Hey, whatever you say.  You don’t have to make excuses if you want to take a nap in the middle of the day on the carpet wherever you are – snorts.

.

20130428-204508.jpg

Dear Bacon,

Really, it’s not what you think.  I’m working on an experiment.  If I ‘look’ like I’m sleeping, maybe the birds will come.  When the birds come, I have hopefully a two piece for lunch.  What do you think?  Signed Smart Kitty

Dear Smart Kitty,

Personally to me, you look like you sleeping.  Why eat that little Woodstock or Tweety Bird.  Let them be and stick to your kitty chow.  I bet you will enjoy it more anyway.

Remember my friends, keep sending your pictures and questions to me at Baconthompson@gmail.com

Thanks and have a great day!
