🦃  Happy Thanksgiving, friends!  🥧

I am thankful for Mom and her cuddles, Grandmom (who is spoiling me rotten), delicious noms (especially radicchio!), and yummy—er, wonderful friends!  A special thank you to each and every one of you all for sending me so much love every day!  🥰

Noms and shell hugs to all!  🤗🍽💕

Uh oh, why is Tiny Tom mad at me?  What do you mean, no turkey nomming for me?!

Bonus GRUMP outtakes where I tried to get Mom to handfeed me my pumpkin treat:


Excuse me, where are my noms?!


I don’t care how cute my jack-o-lantern basket is, how dare you make me stretch for my treat?!


My pumpkin keeps moving.  Hold it for me, Mom!

My First Strawberry!, Part 2
(Parts 1, 3, 4, 5, and 6)

I tried so hard to nom my first strawberry!

Mommy showed me that it’s easier to nom the pointy end, but after a few bites, I went back to trying (and failing) to nom the big fat juicy part. Why must nomming be so hard?!

This old video of me trying to nom my first strawberry now has over 100,000 views!!  We don’t know why this video suddenly started getting a lot of views this year, but I feel like a YouTube star now!  🎥🌟🍓🐢

(Click on the other parts to see more photos and gifs!)

A clip from this old video of me is in a Google ad!!  (I make an appearance at 0:14!)

My first strawberry video is also now up to more than 500,000 views!?  😮  I’m a shellebrity!!  🎥🌟🍓🐢

We can’t believe we are saying this:  My first strawberry video now has over 1 MILLION VIEWS!!!!!  😲😲😲

One year later, my first strawberry video is up to over 7 million views!!!  😲😲😲  #shellebrity  (Sadly, it looks like Google took down the ad I starred in.)

We never imagined so many people would want to see my adventures!  We started out posting as a way to share all the photos and videos Mom takes of me without spamming all of Mom’s friends a zillion times every day.  Thank you for all the love you have shown me!  Shell hugs to all!  🤗💖🌟🐢

Happy I Love Yarn Day!

Happy I Love Yarn Day!

Mom and I both love yarn!  Mom loves yarn as a crafty medium, like for making my Halloween costume.  This year, Mom is doing something a little different:  In past years, Mom has tailored my costume to the exact shape of my shell.  But, this year, Mom is trying out a more domed shape.

I don’t know how to crochet like Mom, but I love yarn, too—in my own way!  😋


Mom, can I get yarn for breakfast tomorrow?

📸  Bonus GRUMP from when Mom accidentally turned on her camera flash:


I am Not Amused, Mom!

Shiver me timbers, I know just where th’ noms …

Shiver me timbers, I know just where th’ noms be hidin’!  No shiny navigator can fool Pirate Cap’n Kirby.  Th’ shiny whatsit be nay navigator—th’ shiny be th’ noms!


At last, th’ best o’ th’ booty from ye scurvy landlubbers!


Ye best be nay disturbin’ th’ Pirate Kirby whilst nommin’, lest ye suffer th’ mightiest o’ GRUMPs!


Nommin’ be serious business!


Radicchio be th’ finest booty I ever did nom!


Th’ Pirate Cap’n Kirby be grand pleased!  Brin’ me more radicchio, ye scurvy dog!

It’s a bit late because of Mom’s trip last week, but it’s finally here:  My birthday video!  We have gotten requests for more ASMR videos of me nomming, so Mom filmed ALL of my flower-filled cake nomming!  Sound up to hear me munch, especially in the second half!  🔊

🔚  Plus, watch to the end for bonus crunching!
