Marcus Oink Oink

Taylor: Hey, Marcus, did you know you have a new nickname?

Marcus:  What is it?  Stud Muffin?  Handsome?

Taylor:  No, I heard Jan call you Marcus Oink Oink this morning.

Marcus:  Are you sure you didn't misunderstand?

Taylor:  No, but I think it has something to do with all those disappearing bowls of cat food and your expanding waistline.

Marcus:  I haven't seen any disappearing bowls of cat food.  Have you?

Taylor:  Actually, yes, I have.  That's our food, not yours.  Jan thought she had blocked you from the top of the dryer where our bowl is kept.  That is, until she caught you red-pawed standing on the dryer pigging out today.

Marcus:  Oh, that?  That was just a mid-morning snack.

Taylor:  But Jan can't afford to keep you in cat food and it isn't good for you anyway.  You have gotten fat on it.  Now she has to figure out where to move our food that you can't reach it and she's not happy about that!

Marcus:  There isn't anywhere she could move it I can't reach.  I'm athletic, you know!

Taylor:  That's what she's afraid of.  You're like an energetic bunny on steroids.

Marcus:  Mmmm.  Mr. Energetic Bunny would probably sound a whole lot more appealing to the ladies than Marcus Oink Oink.

Taylor:  Well, if you really care what the ladies think, Marcus, you need to eat more veggies like a bunny and less cat food.

Marcus:  You mean go on a *whispers* d-i-e-t? You do know diet contains the word "die"?  I'm too young to die.

Taylor:   You won't if you diet.  But there is the possibility, if Jan catches you stealing our food again!

We are joining the Pet Parade hosted by Rascal and Rocco, Basil the Bionic Cat, Barking from the Bayou and Owned by a husky.


  1. Marcus, Cat food is not good for dogies! I'm sure we can remember why, nest year!!!

    Uh-oh Marcus... you better watch out that Jan doesn't start putting you in the 'dining car' for the duration of the kitties eating times!!! Then again, if they don't eat it all and just leave it lying there, what's a dog to do eh?.. hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

    pee ess to Jan; I was lucky I could feed them both on the floor level and that Jade wasn't really that interested in Jasper's food; but then again, I made sure that if for any reason Jasper didn't eat up his meal, it got put in a plastic ziplok bag for later; mainly to keep it from going sour, but also to remove any possibility of temptation to his sisfur!!! Yx

  3. We think it was a case of Misunderstanding what was said... We are SURE that Miss Jan ACTUALLY said..." Marcus... WINK WINK " not Oink Oink...

  4. You don't need a diet, Oink Oink! I mean Marcus. You're perfect the way you are.

  5. Cat food tastes better because dogs are not supposed to eat it or they will lose their doggie figures

  6. BOl I was referred to as an energizer bunny too

  7. Strange how fitting some nicknames can be....

  8. Oh, Marcus, I sort of like doggies with a little shape, but doggies with NO SHAPE AT ALL where their waists should be are just not my gig.
    Maybe have a little cottage cheese one or two days a week instead of the kittie's food. Love, Lecturing Loulou

  9. It's okay Marcus, the little piggy went to market...and that's where the food is pal!

  10. Aaaaaaaaaw Marcus, you're lookin' very handsum, but you'll only stay dat way ifin ya' lay off da cat noms. MOL

    Luv ya'

    Dezi and Raena

  11. Marcus, we think you're a pretty good woofies go. But we draw the line at stealing the kitties food. Silly woofie!!

    We sure hope Jan finds a good spot. Or you kitties better eat up fast.

  12. I guess your Mom needs to move the cat dish up even higher. Or maybe put it in some sort of box the cats can fit in, but you can't.

  13. I was certain you were right with Studmuffin. Hahaha 😂

  14. I am an avid kitty noms thief too..but petcretary built a tunnel out of large can and put it into a hole in a lager plastic bin with a lid so she can access it...and the kitties have to tunnel to get their noms. Dog guy can stick his schnooter in the tunnel but he cannot get at the noms inside there. He tried a few times, got sort of stuck and learned it was not worth it, BOL!

  15. Oh, my. Poor pup. Two of our cats eat too much. Mind you, hubby feeds them too much!!!

  16. Oh my Marcus you do sound like a pig. You need to learn to respect the cats food bowls.

    Around here we have the opposite problem the cats try to steal the dog food.

  17. Ha. Marcus Oink Oink is a pretty funny nickname! Maybe Jan can feed the cats in another room, with the door closed?


Thanks for coming by for a visit. We love to hear from you.
