Bountiful, Beautiful Bacon

Standard

I’ve been a mostly good boy this week so I’m expecting some acknowledgement of that fact in the form of my usual GOODNESS on Saturday mornings.   I happen to know for a fact that Mom got a big new package of BACON at the grocery this week…………the thick cut stuff which is EXTRA nommy.

When I say I’ve been a mostly good boy it’s because I confess that the last few days I’ve not been very COOPERATIVE about taking my medicine.  Mom figures she MIGHT have managed to get me to eat about half a pill a couple of times but a couple of other days – ZIP.  This morning I did have a half though…..and Mom has a new strategy so we’ll see how THAT works out!

At least Mom doesn't just sit the pill down in front of me like this poor kitty!  My Mom hides it in yogurt!!

At least Mom doesn’t just sit the pill down in front of me like this poor kitty! My Mom hides it in yogurt!!

Anyway, back to BACON………..Mom says she’s making pancakes and bacon.  There’s one GOOD thing about pancakes and bacon and that is that when Mom gives me a little bit of her bacon – it has a dribble of maple syrup on it.  Now I know I shouldn’t eat sugar…..but just how much sugar is really in a tiny drip/drop of syrup anyway?  Can’t hurt right?  Sure tastes good on bacon…..maybe that’s why Mom AND Dad dump syrup over their pancakes AND their bacon when they eat that.   Smart humans.

Mom’s mowing the lawn today but that’s about the only thing she has to do today other than help me on some of MY projects like Sam-O-Ween!!!!

“OK MOM- LET’S HEAR THE BACON FRYING UP IN THE KITCHEN!!!!!”

  1. Ooooh, yummy Bacon!!! You’re one lucky guy! (*tummy rumbles*) Enjoy! 😀

    Taking pills is such a nuisance, isn’t it?! But at least your Mom hides them in yogurt… 😉

    Have a wonderful weekend, dear Sammy! We ❤ you! 🙂

  2. Maybe your mom should try some cream cheese for your pill, S. It’s stickier than yogurt. It worked for me when I needed medicine once…. Which isn’t saying much since I will eat absolutely anything.

    • Hi Cupcake……Mom has some cream cheese AND some sour cream to try out on me. I’m not sure though – stuff that’s thick confuses me cuz it gets stuck to the roof of my mouth!!!

  5. Yikes! Usually I’m the one who drools on dad, but after reading this post I had to grab a drool catcher to strap to his chin. Mom won’t let him eat bacon anymore, and the whole syrup/no syrup thing is a constant battle in this household. Dad has a habit of drenching his pancakes, while mom favors warm buttered ones only. I side with dad…

    • BUTTER? DID YOU SAY BUTTER????? I am a big fan of butter in addition to bacon and yogurt. My parents pretty much stick to weekend bacon-fests but during the week, butter can be had with a bit of begging….thank heavens!!

      It’s nice to meet you……hope you get some sort of TREAT yourself this morning!!

Oh Sammy…goodness me not taking your tablets…hmmmmm I hope the yummy maple syrup works..i used to put our sweet Merlin Mc Tavish’s tablets in those stinky sandwich spreads..you know the anchovette paste and the like..got him every time 🙂 sometimes your sense of smell lessens from medicine and/or age and the stinkier the better 🙂 do enjoy that delish sounding brekkie sweet Sammy and love the little flowchart from Nellie 🙂 hugs and loves Fozziemum xxx

    • Now that’s an idea my Mom hasn’t tried….I’ve never had any stinky sandwich spread but it may work – you’re right about sense of smell and taste being off. The vet said the stinky goodness wet food I eat is the one MOST cats who have a problem like this DO eat. Meow Mix….the little “pods” – stinky but OH SO NOMMY!

        • Mom is sure that if I ate more stinky goodness than I do, she could have mixed it in and I’d have eaten it….trouble is I just don’t like wet food like I used to! So far the yogurt trick is working pretty darn good though!! 😉

  7. Would you believe we are all so good at taking pills here Sammy? It’s true. We actually just had a bite of bacon for the first time and it was pretty darn good!

    • Oh I’m glad you got to try some bacon……I just love having a teensy bit. I’m not a Piggy when it comes to bacon…just a little goes a long way. I’m glad you’re all good pill-takers. I never had to have one before. I’m NOT happy about it but Mom figured out today that if she gives it to me over a period of time instead of trying to have me eat it all at once, I’m cooperating more!

  8. Sammy, Have you noticed lately that bacon has become even more popular than chocolate…heck, we think Mom said that you can buy bacon-flavored chocolate. We credit you as the sole reason for the world’s new found love of bacon. Damn the cholesterol…full tummies ahead.

  9. Mom says she’s glad none of us big kitties have to have pills. When she had to give medicine to the foster kitties, she did it the easy way. She dissolved them in water and gave them with a syringe. Enjoy your bacon! Cute goodie from Nellie.

    • Mom says she was trying to avoid syringing me because I’m such a scaredy cat – I’ll run from her and hide and NEVER come out! But today we tried giving me the pill in yogurt over a period of time instead of all at once and I was VERY VERY good about that! We’ll try that for a while!

    • YES! That’s what she’s been doing – smashing it to bits and mixing it with yogurt….the problem (we now think) is that it’s too strong tasting if Mom gives it to me all at once with yogurt so now we’re trying giving me SOME pill with yogurt then later the rest of it in another spoon of yogurt. That worked great today so we’ll try that for a while.

  10. Hi Sammy! It’s not often we get bacon here and I feel deprived. Can your tablet be ground up fine and mixed with a little water so it can be squirted in with a syringe? That is what mum had to do with Eric because he was impossible to pill. I have to have mine whole because it is slow release, so mum pops it back my throat and squirts a tiny syringe of water down to make sure it doesn’t get stuck. Luckily the pills are very small.

    • Hi Flynn! Mom grinds my pill up and mixes it with yogurt now and if I’m in the mood I lap it right up…if I’m being obstinate (haha) it takes a few “sessions” of yogurt to get it all down. Today Mom gave me yogurt with pill three times which disposed of the whole thing (eventually). I’m not sure if I’d allow her to syringe me. I’m glad that you’re cooperating with your Mom – I promise to try to be better about it too. After all, they are just trying to help us feel better right Flynn??

  16. So sorry you’re having trouble with the pills Sammy 😦 We have a surefire way of getting round the problem but it does involve liking tuna – do you? We grind the pills up and mix them with tuna and it works a treat every time. It should work with most favourite foods but bacon could be a problem 😉

    • I do like kitty cat tuna (not human tuna for some reason) BUTTTTT I don’t eat enough wet food (even tuna) for Mom to know I’m getting my whole pill!!! It’s a great idea though for kitties who eat better than I do. I’m just a picky guy…….BUTTT – guess what?! Mom has changed the way we do my pill and it’s working the past two days. She grinds the pill up as much as possible into a powder, then instead of trying to get me to eat the whole bit in a few bites of yogurt she gives me about a third of it in yogurt then after I eat that she gives me just plain yogurt with no icky tasting stuff in it. THEN in an hour when I’m asking for a treat, she gives me the rest – it’s working – I’m cooperating – we’re hoping maybe stretching out the eating of the pill in two or three sessions instead of her chasing me around to eat it all at once will work!!!! Keep your fingers and toes crossed!
