When Someone Gives You TMI, All You Can Do Is Turn Up The Volume


Hi evfurrybuddy. It's me, Dori. *wavy paws* I hope yoo enjoyed a wonderpurr weekend filled with adventure, relaxation and delicious noms that yoo normally don’t eat Monday through Friday. Like hot dogs.

On Caturday I wanted a hot dog while I watched sports on teevee with Daddy, but Momma told me No!

She said there’s not a lot of actual meat in hot dogs, even when it's listed as a top ingredient. They are mostly water and fat, with a tiny bit of meat in the traditional sense. The meat that is used is lower-grade and has been turned into sludge.

This was more information than I wanted to hear. I don’t tell her how an egg is born out of a chicken’s butt when she’s craving an omelette.

Then she says hot dogs are full of unhealthy saturated fat and made of muscle trimmings, fatty tissues, head meat, animal feet, animal skin, blood, liver and other slaughter by-products.

By now I was in tears, thinking of all those animals giving their lives only to be used for an inferior tube steak.

I was also ready to barf.

So I didn’t get my hot dog, but Daddy shared his pizza with me loaded with ham, bacon, pepperoni, sausage and beef.

We turned up the teevee volume to drown out Momma’s infomercial on cancer-causing nitrates in cured meats.

Sometimes yoo just gotta enjoy what’s bad for yoo! 🍕🐈💕

Oh no Dori, now I have to tell Lynn how bad her all angus beef hot dogs are. She craves one a month. Yep, just one once a month, no more no less. I'll let her if she treats me like royalty and not share this impawtant info with her. Good your dad shared lovely pizza.

Obviously your Mama is not old enough (and didn't grow up on a farm !) to have eaten beef tongue, beef heart, head cheese or "souse."

Hi Dori! It's nice to see you, sweet friend.

Eww, that's why we don't really eat hot dogs. Just hearing all that stuff made us a little queasy, too. But good on ya for getting some of Dad's pizza. Just don't listed to Momma's PSA. MOL!

You are not missing anything Dori. I once had a "genuine American hot dog" in Disney, and it was the most revolting thing I have eaten, well apart from celery!

Pizza please, yum in the tum. Sometimes mine Mommy allows a wee bit o' cheese but none of the good stuffs that you gots! I be envious.

Dori, we too were about ready to barf. Those meaties on the pizza really are bad for humans, but they sure are nommy. We haven't seen a pizza around here in ages with Mom still working on losing weight, not that we'd get any even if one did magically appear. Happy you got some nibbles.
