Wondering on Not-So-Wordless Wednesday

So yesterday our friend Matilda from The Legacy Chronicles made a concerning discovery about her Piggy.  Matilda had a hankering for a taste of bacon so she decided to see if Piggy had any to offer.  She discovered it was all about "bait and switch" and that Piggy had NO bacon, only stuffing, and not the kind you find in a turkey!!!

So I, Timber, wondered if I needed to do some investigating here.  I love all things FISHY so I got my friend Finn the Fish out and decided to see if he would let me have some fish.

YIKES!!!!  Matilda is right - another case of bait and switch - no fish inside at all.  Just that white stuff that makes Mom yell: NO, NO, NO!!!  Matilda, I think there is an evil plot going on here.

I need to continue this investigation.  Maybe Ollie the Octopus will let me get some calimari for my dinner.

Why are you laughing??? Do you think this is another case of trickery???

Mom, I think you need to do a better job when you select our toys - they really DO need to be tasty!!!

Mom wanted me to let you know that poor Lightning had another one of those crazy "episodes" Monday night after his day at the Spa. He did some weird stuff that was sort of like a seizure, but not really.  Maybe a mini-stroke???  Maybe a reaction to the vaccines he got the same day???  He is fine now, so we will have to keep an eye on things.  Misty and I go for our Spa treatments Thursday and Friday.  Hope they go better than Lightning's.

Woos, Timber


  1. Oh poor Lightning. I hope it's not something else that caused the seizure. Big healing hugs.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. Scritches to the pups. ♥

  2. Oh Timber I once had a weird encounter with a turkey. My mama was the Chef for T'giving for many years.Then she finally agreed it was time for her to be the guest and not the chef. So yours truly (maybe 25 years ago) cooked her first turkey...the aroma was divine. Then when my parents arrived Mama was gonna make giblet gravy. She asked where the bag was that was in the turkey????????WHAT BAG?????? Well it was in the turkey...and for some reason not melted. I learned then to be highly suspicious of stuffin'. Just sayin'
    Lightning I'm glad you are feeling better and hope and purr it contines.
    Hugs Cecilia

  3. We hope that Lightning will be OK.

    Timber, you have an octopus called Ollie????? Please don't harm him!


  4. Our almost 15 year old CWC Tali had a stroke; as I was concerned about other strokes following, our vet told me to watch his eyes to see if they flicker (i.e., move back and forth. There are other indications, but his is the one I have found to be most helpful.

  5. Make sure to notify the spa and ask EVERYTHING they used on Lightening.
    He has had this happen before without SPA?

  6. We can't believe your fish was only full of stuffing and not fish guts, Timber! Our paws are crossed for Lightning that he doesn't have another episode.

  7. OMD, I can't believes we have such a rampant case of false advertising here!!! No bacon, no fish, no calimari?!!? This is NOT fair at all.

  8. Does that mean my duck isn't... Duck? 🤔

  9. I am sorry Lightning had an episode. It could have been the vaccine that triggered it. It is usually the carrier and not the actual vaccine that can cause the problem.
    That is not right that the fish only had stuffing inside, Timber.

  10. Wowsers, those Mamas really ARE sneaky...we think we may need to start doing our own shopping!

    POTP and paws crossed for Lightning!

  11. Please don't investigate Ollie. I will add Lightning to my prayer list. XO

  12. Some toys sure aren't what they are supposed to be, we've noticed that too. Dang Lightning, that's scary. I hope it was just a reaction to your vaccine dear boy.

  13. I am very sorry to read about Lightning. We are saying prayers. I think some of our toys are meat, and some stuffing, and you have to open all of them to see.

  14. Ya, our octopus has no calamari in it either! Definitely bait and switch.

    I hope that Lightning doesn't have that happen again. As an aside, Shyla's seizures are really odd - nothing like any that I've seen in the past. I took video, and then a veterinary neurologist told us that they were actually seizures (and phenobarb stopped them, further corroborating that opinion). Just a thought - if you can get out the phone and start videoing fast enough, someone might know what's up.

  15. Oh, i thinks it's a conspiracy with the toy industry!! I thinks they must be sellin' the REAL stuffs on the black market! I thinks we needs to dig into this further.....hehehehee
    Oh Lightning, I sure hopes the dogtors and your MOms can figure outs what's goin' on....sendin' lots and lots of POTP and healin' vibes and AireZens!
    Ruby ♥

  16. Surely third time lucky with the octopus. Go for it Timber!
    Meanwhile, we're sorry to hear about Lightning's episode, and hope it was a one off.
    Toodle pip!
    PS Gail says: thank you so much for your kind words about Bertie yesterday.

  17. Yes, hopefully it was a one off. Episodes like that are scary.

  18. we noticed that too... in our penguin there was only snow inside... but that can happen when it comes from south pole right? Hugs and lots of POT to lightning... all paws are crossed...

    I think there is a conspiracy at the toy manufacturers!!!
    POTP for Lightning - sounds like he had a touch too much excitement for one day...
    Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  20. Hi Timber!!
    Sorry to hear about poor Lighting...we hope he feels better soon and will continue to get all well again in no time. Must be too much for him...We'll keep sending vibes his way! Love and hugs to you and Misty!!
    Cheers, Maxx and Mommy

  21. We are sending you lots of AireZen and positive vibes, Lightning. We hope they can figure out what's going on.

  22. oh sweet Lightning! hang in there! XO

  23. Lightning I'm so sorry you had a bad turn after you got all spa'd up! Maybe too much excitement or perhaps reaction from shots? Hope you are OK my friend. As for the problem with toys NOT tasting like they look - I agree.....not fair....."deceptive advertising" I say!

    Hugs, Teddy

  24. As far as I'm concerned, taking the stuffing out of a squeaky toy is standard procedure. Did you get the squeaker out too?

  25. A toy is a toy until you want something tasty. Or to silence something in them. 😊

  26. Hmmm, something tells me you are not getting calimari! Sending purrs, pawsitives and POTP for sweet Lightning.

  27. POTP to Lightning. We hope you find some stuffing, not as good as bacon but it annoys peeps so gives it a bonus.

  28. Charlee: "Our Dada says just bread the stuffies and throw them in the deep fryer and you will never be able to tell they don't really have all that good stuff inside. But I have my doubts."
    Chaplin: "We're sorry to hear about Lightning's incident and send lots of purrs for him not to have any more of them."
    Lulu: "And I send fluffy tail wags!"
