A word about ham

I know that all of you know how much I love ham. I would like to explain something about my addiction to ham though. Mum is very careful about how much she feeds me, as foods that are high in fat content, like ham (even though mum buys the really good stuff that doesn't have a lot of fat), are not always good for kitties and pups. My BFF Tia had pancreatitis and is not allowed to eat ham or other foods that are high in fact any more. A little while back I even gave up ham out of solidarity with Tia.

So even though I talk about ham a lot, I don't really get as much to eat as I would like.

This has been a Huffle Mawson community service announcement.

In honour of my friend Fin's birthday, we are playing a new game where you post baby pictures of yourself. Now I don't have any of those because I arrived here when I was already five years old, so I am going to show you a baby picture of my Uncle Buckley. This is from his first day at home with my grandpa. He is three months old in this picture. Wasn't he adorable?

Oh, holy ham-on-a-stick, Huffle! You should have heard Ammy, Mom and Storm when they saw that picture of Uncle Buckley! They're all totally ga-ga over him. I must say, he was one VERY cute pup=pup! I'll bet you were even cuter when you were a kitten!!! Really.
Play bows,

Momma tells us that sometimes just the smell of a favorite food or a little taste is as good as having a lot. But we don't believe her about that either.

Hey Huffle,
You're right about ham of course. Spare ribs are like that, too. Everything in moderation.
We will post baby pictures along with our regular posting. That's a great idea. Happy day after New year's to ya.

Krap, dat Uncle Buckley of yoors is so cute mom was squeeing. We don't get as much bacon as we'd like either...even tho we talk about it a lot. When da beans eat it we each get a tiny, tiny bit. It's just enuff to taste and make us want MORE!

We do get all excited about ham, but yep, woo are right, we don't get too much of it either.

Uncle Buckley is a cutie - look at those ears!!!

Happy New Year's Day.

Woos and cheer, the OP Pack

Me too Huffle, I LOVE HAM!!! But only get little bits of it every once in a while!

ThePainterPack said...

Sadly, Mommy has deprived us of ham since finding out how bad it was for us...Not that we got that much, but sometimes we'd hit the motherload....

Happy New Year to woo!!!

Thanks for that special ham announcement, so thoughtful.

Uncle Buckley is the cutest of pups! Uh Oh I better cover Daddy's eyes or he will start wanting a new dog again. Thanks for playing Huffle you are the best friend a cat could have!

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Wow, what a cutie! We got some turkey ham this morning while Dad was making himself an omelet. Yummy and low fat!

Ham can be very high in sodium content also, so mom only gives us tiny snacks of it too.

Robyn and The (Mostly) Badass Cat said...

Happy Noo Yeer yall!!!

Your Uncle is one handsome woofie! Mum got us ham for Christmas, but we didn't eat it. We will, however eat cockroaches, dirt, and Suey tried to eat one of my hairballs once. Go figure.

Hi Huffle
It was good meeting you in the chatroom yesteday. We thought we'd come by your blog and say hi.
We had heaps of ham for breakfast yesterday because my pinky accidently left it out after it was frozen. They thought it would be ok to poison us rather than risk eating it themselves....sigh...and they wonder why Tess has gas.....

Very cute puppy picture. Other than Natasha, we don't have puppy pictures either because we all got here after our first birthday - at least.

Uncle Buckley is huge for 3 months old! Wowie!

We do not care for Ham, so I guess that makes us thin! hahaha!

Jack & Moo said...

It's all about quality, not quantity, right? We love those rare bites of ham we get, too. We did get some on New Years Day, cause mom baked a big one!
Aww, Uncle Buckley is just adorable! We thik wo were undoubtedly one adorable little Huffle-fluffball as a kitten!

Woos & a-roos,
Star & Jack a-roo
