Spotlight Thursday – Meet Mr. Cleveland Brown

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!

FRIENDS – Meet my fellow oinker from across the pond – doesn’t he remind you of someone?  Snort-oink.  Mr. Cleveland Brown will be checking in for messages/comments throughout the day.  Please – let’s show him some love ❤


Name:  Mr. Cleveland Brown

Age:   Not sure – I think around 8

Location:  Prestatyn, Wales, UK

Web/Blog Page:  Under Construction 🙂

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  I thought she looked like Santa! It was December and they came to visit me and she was wearing a red coat! She said to me that she was going to be my new Mummy, I liked her although I was quite wary at first. I thought he had a nice kind face but I wasn’t sure if they would love me though, I need to explain. At that time I was staying at a horse sanctuary, I had been taken there so I’d be safe. Thing is my old parents weren’t very nice to me, I don’t know why I tried to be good. I don’t remember a lot because I was only little but I ended up running around on a road with scary cars that were going really fast and one hit me and it made me go to sleep for a bit.

I was told later that a nice man tried to put me in his boot to take me to the police station but he couldn’t lift me so he rang the police man and they said they would come but by the time they did I had woken up and was running again. It was so cold and I was so hungry so I just kept wandering and I found a nice garden so I went in there and tried to sleep. In the morning the lady that lived in the house opened her curtains and we looked at each other a bit shocked. She was nice but I was very scared of people but she rang the police man again and they came and he took a picture of me, I think they call it a mug shot? So then the horse sanctuary ladies came and with a bit of a struggle they got me into the trailer thingy but I was good I didn’t bite any of them.

It felt so good to be in the stable it was so much warmer as I had some nice straw to snuggle in and they gave me some food, I was so hungry, those ladies were very nice. They told the radio people about me trying to find my parents and my new Mummy heard about me and that’s when they came to see me. My old parents didn’t come for me but I’m glad they didn’t if I’m honest they weren’t nice people.

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  Well the big day came and I was put in a crate, I gave them a bit of a run around of course hehe but I went in there in the end. They lifted me into the big car and we drove for a little while until we got to where I was going to live. They opened the crate and I wandered out and that’s when I saw it! A really smart house! I’d never had a house to myself before well I hadn’t had much of anything really. It might not have been much to some pampered piggies but to me it was a palace. I went straight in and snuggled up in the warm straw it was bliss, I knew that never wanted to leave this place ever.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?  Not sure where to start there’s been few hehe! There was the time I escaped and the chase was on again around the street, I did a big poo in the lady over the road’s garden but they managed to guide me back into my house again. Once I was back in the drive I ran straight back into my piggy palace and didn’t go out again for a while I didn’t want to do that again! There was one time that I thought the hose pipe would look good in my house and took it in there thing is I hadn’t considered that it was on and my house got wet oops!

Who do you have wrapped around your trotters more – mom or dad – and why? Both! I have them so well trained. I do a bit of squealing and they will come out and give me some fuss and a snack hehe! I think Daddy sneaks me more biccies that Mum though.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  Some think that I’m mean, and are scared of me I don’t know why I’m more scared of them! Once they get to know me though they know I’m nice.

Wiggle Your Toes Day

 Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here – 

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!


Friends – What a glorious day this is – Wiggle Your Toes Day!  Think about it – whether you have paws, toes, hooves or whatever, sometimes it just feels good to spread those toes and wiggle them.  Let those piggies loose (no offense Bacon).

Humans push their toes in shows or socks all day long.  They are always in a rush and sometimes forget to slow down.  Today, slow down!  Take those toes out of their confinements, wiggle them and let them breathe for a while.

Toes, hooves or paws come in all different sizes and shapes.  Have you wiggled your toes yet today?

Spotlight Thursday – Meet Leia, Raven, Pepper, Michael and Precious

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:  

Leia: Well, there’s a lot of us, so who goes-

Raven: FIRST!

Pepper: Very mature, kid.

Michael: Have ya’ll ever noticed that your heads can fit in my mouth? How weird is that?

Precious: Will this take long? I haven’t seen the inside of my eyelids in a very long time.

Age:  

Pepper: Um, let’s see. Oldest to youngest? In that case Precious is –

Precious: Still young enough to kick your multi-colored tail if you finish that sentence.

Raven: I find it very odd that we all can tell time yet none of us can even read.

Michael: I’m sixteen months old. Not sure what a month is, but I am sixteen of them.

Leia: Oh for crying out loud. Precious is 12, Pepper is 6, I’m 5, and Raven is 8 months.

Location:  

Leia: I believe we’re in Houston.

Raven: Not exactly Houston. Well, it’s close enough.

Precious: Humble, we’re in Humble.

Pepper: Like, being humble, meek, lowly and that stuff?

Michael: Weird name for a place. I think it’s pronounced “umble” though.

Raven: That’s not how you say “humble”.

Michael: Dude, I know. 

Web/Blog Page:  http://Walkingthroughpain.com

Leia: You should check it out. Or else!

Pepper: Did you just threaten the audience?

Michael: What’s an audience?

Precious: It’s the people who will be reading this later.

Raven: So why not just call them people?

ALL: Ohhhh……

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  

Michael: I was tearing it up with some of my bros, when all of a sudden…

Raven: These enormous hands came in and grabbed me...

Pepper: Next thing I knew, these faces were looking down on me…

Leia: And they hugged me and gave me food and let me chase the cats…

Precious: I infiltrated the male human’s domicile nigh on a decade ago, feigning an injured paw and utilizing my notable skills of stealth and deception in order to set myself up as the veritable queen of this domicile.

Michael: Pepper told me you got beat up and sounded like a tiny little kitten and daddy fed you scraps of –

Precious: Silence demon fluff dog!

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?   

Leia: I’ve got an anxiety problem. I literally ate holes in the walls. And, well, mom and dad still kept me around.  That was unexpected.

Raven: I had a pretty bad rash on my side that really messed up the daily schedule for not only my parents, but for my brother and sisters. Sorry, guys.

Pepper: I think I’ve always known that mom and dad were going to be there for me. Then again, I was the cat equivalent of a toddler when they brought me home.

Precious: As my younger canine companion so eloquently stated earlier, I was in all senses of the word, a rescue. Dad found me one night with an injured paw, took me in, and the rest is history.

Michael: The first night I was brought home. They wouldn’t stop recording me. They had these big, goofy grins on their faces.

Leia: Your head fit in my mouth back then.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?   

Raven: I really haven’t been here long enough to cause much destruction. I did knock over the lamp a few days ago.

Michael: Did you break it?

Raven: No

Pepper: Doesn’t count.

Leia: I followed mom  and dad into the garage one time and hopped into the car. I thought we were going for a ride! Turns out, we weren’t. I freaked when they tried to get me out, and well, I peed in the car.

Everyone else: Hee, hee, hee.

Leia: Grrrrrrr!

Michael: Now, see, I peed literally every single night when I first came home. I had an excuse: I was a puppy.

Leia: Shut. Up.

Pepper: So when we moved to the house from the apartment a few years ago, we suddenly got these long, soft sheets hanging from the top of the windows –

Leia: Curtains. And you obliterated them.

Pepper: Yeah….those were a lot of fun.

Precious: Years ago, and I don’t remember much for the night was so traumatic, I supposedly walked up and down the hall, howling, and eventually, relieved myself on the floor. Obviously these accusations are baseless.

Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  

Leia: Mom. I just wriggled my way into her heart.

Michael: I was a white ball of fluff, of course mom loves me the most.

Pepper: I am an egalitarian paw wrapper.

Raven: You’re an eagle?

Pepper: Yes Raven, I am an eagle.

Raven: So cool. I’m an eagle, too.

Precious: You’ve got both mom and dad around your paws?

Raven: That, too.

Precious: The human male’s soul is mine and mine alone. Touch him not!

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  

Leia: The biggest misconception is that as a French bulldog, I should be more fancy. Well, I live in the US, sorry to disappoint.

Pepper: Oui.

Michael: The greatest misconception about me is that I will eat anything and everything in my path, leaving a wake of destruction so wide and vast it could only be called apocalyptic. All I want is some good play time and some snoozing.

Raven: The whole black cat stigma.

Precious: You’re not bad luck.

Raven: Exactly.

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 Sophie

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:  Sophie

Age:  About 2 years old (a lady shouldn’t tell her age, right?)

Location:  Orange County, California

Web/Blog Page:  http://threechattycats.com/

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  FOOD! I get real cat food! My mama found me outside a movie theater and I had been surviving on popcorn and whatever else I could find for the first 6 months of my life.

 Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  DAD! I love to lay on his chest and he sometimes lets me groom his hairy chin (I guess they call it a beard). I’m pretty sure I’m his favorite kitty in the whole wide world. He loves the way I coo and chirp when I want attention. I loaf on his chest all the time and he’s putty in my paws.

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  .When my big brother Dexter cuddled and groomed me for the first time. I’ve been his shadow ever since and I love him very much.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  About me personally? That I’m a big foodie. Yes, I like food. A lot. But really I just get so excited when I see food because I didn’t have it handed to me for the first part of my life. But I rarely ever finish my plate. And my big belly? That’s just that pouchy thing that some kitties get. But I don’t keep food in it.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?   Probably the time I trapped my head in a Kleenex box.  Luckily the Pops put the camera down after snapping a few shots to help me out.

Wiggle Your Toes..or Paws…or Hooves Day

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!

..

 Now friends – this is a holiday that we can ALL be involved in and celebrate.  Today is Wiggle Your Toes Day.  But let us not forget the ones that have paws or hooves.  So we shall change it just a bit to include ALL.

For humans, they cramp their toes into sneakers or Lord forbid heels all day.  Can you imagine that my fellow anipals?  Thankfully, us anipals are smarter than the average human.  We let our paws and hooves be free to wiggle everywhere all day long.  In the grass, in the water, in the sand – it doesn’t matter where.

And did you know that all toes are different in come in different sizes and shapes.  Some humans have less toes and some have more.  Some of us anipals even have webbed paws or toes.  All of us different.  But one thing is sure – We are *all* unique.
