Spotlight Thursday – Meet Little Binky

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:  Little Binky

Age:  13

Location:  I live in the Netherlands, to be precisely in the south of Limburg

Web/Blog Page:

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  When I met my Granny I thought: “I don’t know why, but I already Love you,” but when I met Grandpaw, I thought: “OMC… not another male person that probably doesn’t like me…and I kept distance for a while to see which way the wind would blown. 

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  The defining moment that I knew that I was in my furrever home was the day that Granny’s Angel left for Furryland and my two-feet brother said to Granny that it was allright for him that I could stay forever with Granny and Grandpaw, after he and his mother have found another house. That was so sweet of the little 5 year old boy and Granny was smiling between her tears…and so was I, because I knew that travelling time was over and I would be spoiled from head to toe…and heart to heart…

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?   The ‘now-I’ve-done-it moment’…let me think…deeper…deeper… Yes, got it! I think that was the moment that I didn’t came home on time and that Granny and Grandpaw were very worried about me, because Granny saw all scenarios passing by in her head, while I was just around the corner. I have two blogs about the grounding that came after Grounded Selfie and maybe you like to read them here.

 Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  I knew from the beginning that I saw Granny that she was the one that I can twist around my little paws in no time. There is nothing that I can’t do, it is all okay…except of the night walks, she is very strictly on that one now…no more night walks, not even in the garden… but she gives me loves, when I ask for it, even if it is in the middle of the night, even Grandpaw is jealous of that. She gives me to eat and when I don’t want to eat something that comes furresh out of the can, she opens another can and asks me if I prefer that one. She lets me sleep on her lap for the entire evening, until I have enough of lying on it… She stands up for me, when someone says I am..well…a little to…what was the word, Shoko…volumunuous, or something…or when I am to scared, or whatever feelings are involved, she always helps me out on it and tells others that everyone is just like they are, or, look at yourself! …so I feel always safe around my Granny and to show her that, I follow her wherever she goes, like a doggie, but, to be honest, I only do that to please her…MOL 😀 I’m busy to wrap Grandpaw around my paws now and I have to say, it is working already 

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  The biggest misconception that humans think about me is, that outsiders don’t see me as a fully fledged member of the family. People that say ‘it is just a cat’ or ‘it is not a baby’, probably don’t understand the meaning of life. I am not an ‘it’, I am a living creature, like you. I have a soul, like you. I have a charakter, like you and I show you how I feel, but also how you feel. When you look outside the world, you don’t have to give a name to the tree, flower, bird, cat or whatever, just be aware of what you see or feel and you will see me as a furriend, or a baby. I like to be pamperd and you like to give it to me, so what’s wrong to see me as a baby? I even have furriends with a stroller and they love it! Well, I guess I made my point on this one…next question…


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

Romper Room Throw Back

20121126-064758.jpgMom told me about this show that she used to watch growing up as a child. It was called Romper Room. Do you remember it? She said that it was a series that ran from 1953 until 1994. Of course, snort – mom came in there sometimes in the late 1970’s.

She told me she used to watch it ALL of the time. We even found an old back issue of one of them and she showed it to me. Even dad said he watched it growing up. Of course, it was right up there with shows like Captain Kangaroo and Mr. Rogers.

There were lots of things that mom and dad both said they learned. One thing was when they served milk and cookies to the children. You remember the little prayer given before eating, “God is great, God is good. Let us thank him for our food. Amen.” I think I’ve even heard daddy still mutter that before dinner sometimes – snort.

And do you remember the bumblebees, Mr. Do-Bee and Mr. Don’t-Bee? Do-Bee good little children and Don’t Be Mean. Those were so hilarious when we watched the show the other day – LOL

The ending was my favorite – the magic mirror. “Romper, bomper, stomper boo. Tell me, tell me, tell me, do. Magic Mirror, tell me today, have all my friends had fun at play?” The teacher would then name off names, “I see Jimmy and Lucy and Tiffany and Judy…” I *so* hoped she would say Bacon in the episode we watched, but she didn’t. Mom said she never said her name either. Pooey.

So, I kind of wanted to do a throw back to the old Romper Room Magic Mirror. I wanted to look in my Magic Mirror and ‘see‘ all of the people that have seen my blog.

I see Hungary, I see Italy, I see Bosnia and Herzegovina. I see Greece, I see Lebanon, I see Australia and I see Oman (I had to look that one up on the map!).

I see Saudi Arabia, I see Denmark, I see Maylaysia and I see United Republic of Tanzania. I see Estonia, I see Kenya, I see Vietnam and I see Pakistan.

I see Israel, I see the United States, I see the Netherlands and I see the United Kingdom. I see Canada, I see South Africa, I see Mexico and I see Germany.

I see Singapore, I see Spain, I see Georgia (not to be confused to the Georgia where I live in the United States 🙂 and I see the Phillippines. I see Brazil, I see India, I see Portugal and I see Indonesia.

I see Switzerland, I see Poland, I see Russian Federation and I see Ireland. I see Serbia, I see New Zealand, I see Malta and I see France.

I see Thailand, I see Taiwan, I see Guatemala and I see Sweden. I see Republic of Korea, I see Norway, I see Hong Kong and I see Austria.

I see Columbia and I see Aruba. I see Peru and I see Ukraine.

Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you again REALLY SOON my friends. Hogs and Kisses – Bacon
