Mom was going through our baby book last weekend and came across the picture of me when I was a mere babe on the day that I adopted them. I think I weighed right around 3-4 pounds at the time and I was around 5-6 months. Wasn’t I small. I mean don’t get me wrong, I’m small now. But back in the day, I was really small. Mom called me her little furball all the time. I fit so snugly in Nana’s hands that day. She held me all the way home. aaww – those were the days.
I was so glad to be adopted to my forever home. Sometimes it’s hard for me to remember that far back – three years ago. Sometimes it feels like I’ve been here at the Hotel Thompson forever with my family. I wouldn’t want it any other way for sure.
Hope you have a great weekend friends. Now I leave you with Jokes from Daddy. I hope you enjoy 🙂
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!

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents? OMG…they’re giants!
What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home? The Mommy and the Daddy came 3,000 miles to get me and took me home with them on an AIRPLANE.
What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home? I ate mommy’s brand new baseboards right after the condo remodel.
Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why? I’m a Daddy’s girl, through and through. We watch TV together in his recliner, and he takes me to breakfast and the dog park every Saturday while Mommy sleeps in. Mommy is the one who takes me to the vet.
What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you? People see my face and think I’m all “sugar and spice and everything nice”, but I’m a tomboy who’s really more “snips and snails and puppy dog tails”.
Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!

Today, August 16th, is National Tell a Joke Day. YAY! Today should be filled with chuckles and laughs all around. Participate in this laughable day and tell some jokes. Do it in person, pass it along in a few emails or blog about it. The more jokes you tell today, the more fun today will be. Start the laughter and keep it flowing.
In honor of this day, Bacon has decided to tell a few jokes that he has heard. Get ready to laugh friends.
Joke 1 –
One of my neighbors owns several cats. On a recent visit, she introduced them to me. “That’s Astrophe, that’s Erpillar, that’s Aract and that’s Alogue.”
“Where on earth did you get such unusual names?” I asked
“Oh, those are their last names,” she explained. “Their first names are Cat.”
Joke 2 –
Why are sharks mostly salt water creatures?
– Because pepper would make them sneeze.
Joke 3 –
Why do seagulls fly over the sea?
– Because if they flew over the bay they’d be bagels.
Joke 4 –
What do you get when you cross a flower and a dog?
– A Collieflower (cauliflower) – snorts
Welcome my friends to another week of Travels in the South. My dad says that sometimes you just need a good hamburger, something solid and substantial. This week he wanted just that – an awesome hamburger. You’ve heard us talk about the great pizza that a restaurant called Mellow Mushroom has but did you know they have build your own burgers? Daddy saw it on the menu and just had to try it… of course while mom had a wonderfully delicious salad – poor mom.
The burger is 100% black angus beef topped with dad’s favorites: pickles, lettuce, tomatoes, cheddar and swiss cheeses and bacon – gulps. Dad said it was a handful and was so delicious. Of course, it did take two hands to eat and plenty of napkins. I guess that’s a good sign to a great juicy burger, huh?
So if you have a Mellow Mushroom close by, check them out for their burgers. They also have vegan burgers which mom says sound delicious.
After reading your column last week about a cat that does yoga, I thought what the heck. My master has a room for meditation so I tried it.
This position is called my sitting dog pose. I really does work on calming your nerves. Thanks little pig. Signed Peaceful Pal
Dear Peaceful Pal,
I’m glad it worked out for you. You do look really grounded in that picture. Keep up the great work!
Dear Bacon – hiccup,
My humans tell me that – slurred – I’m spending too much time with my close friend Jose. Hiccup. They don’t complain about me catting around on the streets anymore. They just don’t like my choice of friends. Hiccup. What should I do. Can they pick my friends? Signed Frisky Fiesta
Dear Frisky Fiesta,
You do understand that your friend Jose is not really ‘real’, right? Instead of having a problem with your choice of ‘friends’, you’re humans might want to look into some classes for you… With TAA (Tomcats Alcohol Anonymous). Perhaps you should lose the hat, get a new friend and start listening to the humans. Take care my friend.
Are baths really necessary? They freak me out. Signed Wet Purrbie
Dear Wet Purrbie,
I love baths. They’re very relaxing. Especially when mom puts bubbles in the water. Instead of fighting it, embrace it. My purr things here love the water. We all do. After a bath, we all get our hair done – that is heaven. Find your happy place during bath time and learn to enjoy it.
Just wanted to let you know man that we enjoy your posts. Happy Friday. Signed Don’t Worry Be Happy
Dear Don’t Worry Be Happy,
Thanks so much. It takes support and encouragement from fans like you to keep it going. I appreciate that. Happy Friday back to you.
