Wednesday Word—Turkey


I’m reviving a Thanksgiving post from 2011 with a little bit of editing. I figured I’d rerun it since I don’t think I can improve on it. I’m also starting with some art I made in 2011. These little postcards used to be my headers before I met the multi-talented Glogirly.

When Pop told me he'd bought the Thanksgiving turkey, of course I was thrilled. It was curious that he bought it online but that’s the way of the world. Whatever. I couldn't wait to see it and sniff it to see if it met with my approval. From the size of the box, it was a HUGE one! Size definitely matters to this kitty. Heh heh! Pop said he'd open it and place it in the pan so I could have a photo op. I can’t believe they trust me enough to let me post with the turkey!!


But Pop, this doesn't SMELL like turkey …


Are you SURE this is the Thanksgiving turkey? I'm starting to panic just a bit …

Of course, TW being TW had the turkey facing the wrong way in the first photo shoot, so we had to do it over to show you the front of the turkey. And, in the spirit of the holidays, let it be noted by Santa that CK cooperated.


This side doesn’t smell like turkey either.

The joke was on ME, because the REAL bird was in the refrigerator thawing out for tomorrow. This is a 3½ pound CHOCOLATE turkey that Pop fell in love with. Occasionally Pop will spurge on himself but he's the breadwinner, so be it. Also, it's from a small, local business and we definitely support small, local businesses. Just gave me quite a scare. Someone—I'm not saying who—is gonna be BIT for this and I don't mean a little love nip either! When you least expect it …

Truth be told, the real reason I’m rerunning it was cos I refused to post with this year’s chocolate turkey. What are your humans cooking tomorrow? Hopefully not choco turkey or tofurkey. I hope if they’re spending it away from home, they’ll bring you a kitty bag.

The chocolate turkey is pretty sneaky of your pop! The head peep is going out to eat with Aunt O this year, so there won't even be leftover turkey. Talk about all kinds of wrong. We have, however, been promised whipped cream, and she had better deliver.

How long did it take your humans to eat that chocolate turkey? And more to the point, did you get the real thing? :-)

Happy Thanksgiving to you tomorrow. Someone send some leftovers, as our Thanksgiving was last month and we won't be getting anything special tomorrow.

That chocolate turkey is pawsome! Thanksgiving dinner at our house so lots of turkey for Truffles :)

Kitties Blue said...

We know how much your peeps like chocolate. That is a huge amount, though. Hope you get some real turkey. Our humans won't be home and no chance of a kitty bag. Maybe we'll get some turkey and giblets stinky goodness. Happy Thanksgiving! XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...

What a great turkey! MOL

Flynn said...

My humans don't like turkey very much so I never get any. Mum says the chocolate turkey looks much better.

Austin Towers said...

We had a vote and it was a tie. I'll have the real turkey and The Staff the chocolate one! BUT we will have to wait til Christmas as, of course, we're not thankful for anything over here tomorrow!!! Happy Thanksgiving, CK! :)

Mariodacatsmom said...

That picture is awesome CK. It's just gorgeous - both the one of you and also how it is put together.

The Island Cats said...

No turkey for us, unless it's Fancy Feast. The peeps are going some place else for turkey. We probably won't even get any leftovers!

Caren Gittleman said...

No turkey for me cause mom says it's bad for male cats. Mom and Dad are going to the Lions game, then to my Aunt Judy's for turkey! Mom made homemade cranberry sauce and "light" sweet potatoes and is bringing challah! Have a delicious Thanksgiving!!

GLOGIRLY said...

Another Thanksgiving, another chocolate turkey.
CK...it's just not fair.

C'mon over here! We're going to raid the kitchen tomorrow!
; ) Katie

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Hmmmm, I myself do not care for the turkey (or any other Human foods) but I have been assured that ample supplies of my favorite Fancy Feast flavors have been acquired. That'll do as long as there's a side of half & half. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, darling girl, and that there's a REAL turkey somewhere in your house! XOXOXOX

Mary @ Stale Cheerios said...

LOL! I love the photos of the chocolate turkey! The kitties look a little confused.

I hope they get some extra treats tomorrow on Thanksgiving day.

Kjelle Bus aka Charlie Rascal said...

XOXO
