Happy Birthday Bashful!!

 

 OMP (oh my pig!)  Can you believe that it’s been FOUR years since Bashful came to live with me here at the Hotel Thompson?  This is him all snuggled in transport the first time that I saw him – aaww.  Wasn’t he all cute and innocent in his straw bed? 

And to think of all of the places he  has been in the world?  He’s going to need extra pages in his passport book soon ❤

So, today, let’s all wish our little international rolling stone a huge HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Spotlight Thursday – Meet Teddy

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:  My Dad had a name picked out before they even FOUND me at the Shelter – I am “Teddy Kimmell” but Mom calls me “Teddy Bear”

Age:  Eleven months old – I’ll be one on March 4th!  (Happy early birthday our friend XOXO Bacon/Houdini)

Location:  Warrenton, Virginia

Web/Blog Page:  http://onespoiledcat.wordpress.com/

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  I was in a small cage at the shelter and when I saw them I thought “all I have to do is act adorable and I’ll get my forever home!”……….I did the ultimate smart thing – I stuck my little ginger paw through the bars on my cell to shake hands.    That was that………done deal.    Why?  Because when Mom and Dad had adopted my Angel brother Sammy 17 years ago that’s what HE did – stuck his paw through the bars and VOILA, got his home!

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  When I found cat beds, blankets, toys, food bowls all over the place – I knew that they had them there for ME and I knew that this was the home for me!

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?   Well I’ve only been here since February 11th so I’ve been very, very good and have had NO “uhohs” ……….yet.   I don’t jump on counters or get in potted plants or ask to go outside or scratch on the furniture so I’m making SURE I don’t get in trouble!

 Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  I have both of them wrapped around my ginger paws…………AND I love them both and follow them both everywhere – hop up in both of their laps – I’m as in love with both of them as they both are with me.    This is just plain HEAVENLY!

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  Maybe that my parents adopted ME because I remind them of my Angel brother Sammy.    They adopted me because I was what they wanted – a kitten but not tiny, and a LOVE BUG who would be a “lap cat”………….not because I’m a ginger tabby like Sammy was.   



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

Collect Rocks Day

 Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!

 .

Today, September 16th, is Collect Rocks Day!  This day is right up Bacon’s alley.  You know because Bacon collects rocks.  Not just any rocks but pet rocks.

Collect Rocks Day is a day to enjoy your pet rocks.  Pet rocks are not just stones that sit there all day.  They are individuals.  They are pets.  They have wonderful attitudes. And might I add – they are PROS at Hide and Go Seek.  One time, Bashful hid in the fish tank and it took us almost three days to find him – that was fun!  So you see, they also have a sense of humor.

It doesn’t matter what they look like.  It doesn’t matter what economical background they come from.  All that matters is the love and fun that is had with your rocks.  Sounds like humans should take note of this huh?

So from all of the rock clan here at the Hotel Thompson – Happy Collect Rocks Day!

Oh and P.S.  Don’t let Bacon’s mom fool you.  She has a rock fetish too.  She wants to collect her very own rock – as in this picture of Rock – chitter chatter – isn’t she funny!?

Happy Mothers Day Moms!!

Today is a wonderful and glorious day – Mother’s Day.  I appreciate my birth mother, Bertha, and I love her very much.  If it wasn’t for her and my dad Champ, I wouldn’t be here, right?  Snorts.  So I’m very thankful for my mother – Happy Mother’s Day mommy Bertha.

 I’m also very thankful for my adopted mother.  Mommy Bertha gave me life but my adopted mom gave me a home full of love.

I’m also very thankful for my nana.  If it wasn’t for her, I wouldn’t have my adopted mommy.  See how these things work?

I am so excited to share this date with you my friends and wish you all a wonderful Mother’s Day filled with love and snuggable hugs.

Trivia Knowledge – did you know that the first Mother’s Day was May 10, 1908 in Philadelphia.  That’s good trivia knowledge that I learned from Journalist Rocky the Squirrel.

So from me, Houdini, Hemi, Mouse Girl, the ‘rock’ clan and Journalist Rocky the Squirrel –

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY TO ALL OF THE MOTHERS OUT THERE – We ♥ YOU!

Bashful Came Home… and He’s Off Again!

 Squeals to the piggy heavens!  My sweet Bashful came home Saturday from spending Thanksgiving with my cousin Sammy in Virginia.  Let me tell you something my friends, we stayed up so late Saturday night listening to stories and meeting his new “friend”.  OMP – can you do a rock whistle?

 She came out of the box all giggles and laughs.  In fact, she bounced out so fast thank goodness daddy caught her when she was blowing kisses at him.  She is a looker!  Also when Bashful came out of the box, his little face was full of red lipstick.  I wonder what they were doing in the box together for the ride back home to the Hotel Thompson?  Snorts with piggy laughter.

    But my friends, we had to ask the beauty what her name was.  She has been very shy in saying it.  We finally got it though – Virginia Blue Eyes.  Isn’t that beautiful just like she is?  She told us stories of her home in Virginia and that she has always wanted to travel to other parts of the world – especially here in the south where she fits right in.  Dad says that she is kind of like Marilyn Monroe – old school movie star.  Personally, I’m thinking she has all of the other rocks and mom/dad wrapped around her.

Also in the box was Mrs. Smith and Mr. Fields piggy ornaments.  Aren’t they cute as buttons?!  We have them in a special spot in our living room now and we LOVE them.  Thanks Cousin Sammy for the great gifts and for hosting our little guy Bashful.

And you know what my friends?  Bashful got mailed out Sunday to his next destination.  It was just a short layover here overnight and then off to the wild blue yonder.  Where will he land for Christmas?  Who will host him next?  Will it be warm or cold?  We shall see soon!
