Spotlight Thursday – Meet Charlie

16 Jun

Spotlight Thursday

Welcome my friends to SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY.  This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better.  Some of them, you may already know.  We hope that you enjoy this series!

Name:  Charlie Nonuts!!  So my testicles didn’t descend .. EVER!   What’s so bad about that??

Age:  3

Location:   Noosa, Queensland, Australia or ‘Paradise’ as I prefer to call it.

Web/Blog Page:  Charlie Down Under

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  Crikey ….. I hope they don’t kill me for this but my first thoughts were ….. OMD!!!!!  They’re ancient. How the heck do they think they are going to be able to keep up with me.  They sure fooled me. They ARE ancient but they’re pretty fit for their age.

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home? You know ….. there was NO real defining moment.  Weird I know,  but it was just like I was meant to be there. I loved Mum and Dad right from day one and I know they loved me too. We’re a great team!!.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?   Crikey ….. my biggest no no at home was probably just the other day.  I peed on the carpet. SO ….. it wasn’t MY fault!!  I’ve NEVER peed inside before ….. not EVER!!  It was in the middle of the night. I went to Dad’s side of the bed. He’s the easiest to wake up. HE DIDN’T!!  I went to Mum’s side of the bed. SHE DIDN’T WAKE UP!!  Ok so I only made a tiny little whimper. I only ever make a tiny little whimper. Dad’s always woken up before!!  NOT THIS TIME!!  I was BUSTING!!!  I HAD TO GO!!  I went to the doggy door. It was closed. I went to the other door and before I knew what was happening ……. oh the relief!!  Fair dinkum ….. it was bliss!!  Just as well it wasn’t a good carpet, aye??

 Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  That’s easy …… Mum!!  Dad won’t let me on the bed. He yells at me!!  What’s with that??  I hate yellin’.  BUT if Mum’s having a sleep in and Dad’s gone to work or golf or wherever it is that Dad’s go, I’m up on that bed so fast you wouldn’t know what hit you. AND Mum just snuggles up. How good is that, aye??

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  They think I’m sweet. Hmmmmmmmmph!  ME?????? Sweet?????  Tell that to the rat I caught at the dog park a while back.  I not only deaded it in super quick time but I ATE IT!!!  Mum’s still recovering!! 

Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!

I’ve tried and tried to make friends with you blokes and this is how stupid I am …. I’m going to try and be friends with you. Please don’t hiss at me or spit. I’ve got very tender feelings ….

        Oh my, you have met bad cats. I am very kind cat, a little bit shy. I am humble, because I have been abandoned, no home, no food. Now I have a family and they love me.
        I want to be your friend, you don’t bite my tail, and I don’t hiss or spite.
        What do you think now, friends or not.

      Crikey Ruth …… you LAUGHED?????????????? I find it a wee bit embarrassing! I don’t usually tell people my last name. At least you made up for it by saying I was a quite a handsome fella. Would have been better without the QUITE but I s’pose I’ve gotta take what I get, aye??

    Bacon, thank you for introducing us to Charlie. He’s a righteous bloke. Charlie, you’re a righteous bloke. I will come visit your blog and we can be friends. Pee S, your mom must have taken that pic of you in bed – you look so comfy!

    OMG, C! A RAT!???? That’s epic. Once I ate a butterfly and Mom was horrified. Imagine a rat! Whoa! You’re my idol!

    Love and licks,

    Crikey Cupcake ……you’re Mom freaked when you ate a BUTTERFLY???????? Your Mom would be no good around me. If it moves fast and it’s little I eat it. Wasps are a bit tricky but those fly blokes don’t stand a chance. I’ll stop by and visit you soon. It’s very nice to meet you.
