Oh sweet friends – even in time of grief, Nellie’s mom Barb made this badge above for other anipals that have been interviewed by me here at the Hotel Thompson. We received this email yesterday when mom/dad were running around doing errands from mom’s accident several weeks ago. Mom actually cried. Do you know it is so hard in life to find true friends and we have so many here in blogville. I can imagine Nellie’s mom and all of the hurt she is going through at this time. We have been there too with the anniversary of our Mouse Girl’s passing coming up next week. The only thing that remotely helps our grieve in times like this is to know that all of our wonderful friends that have already passed the Rainbow Bridge are now greeting the newcomers. It brings tears to our eyes and hearts knowing there are so many that are leaving us but we want to remember that although they are gone, they are never very far from our hearts and memories.
So my friends that have been interviewed by Bacon, please accept this badge to post proudly on your page. Not only for Bacon but for remembering where the badge came from with love.
We miss all of our beloved anipal friends that have passed. And for the rest of the day, we would like to light this candle in their memories. We hope that you share on your blog. Much love my friends from all of us here at the Hotel Thompson ❤

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!
NOTE: Dear friends, it is with a weary heart that we have to relay the news that Nellie passed over the Rainbow Bridge on April 14th. This is one of the last interviews that Nellie did and we so wanted to share it with you. So for today, let’s remember our feisty girl Nellie and please leave your comments for Nellie’s family for support ❤
Name: My name is Penelope, but my furrends calls mes Nellie or Nellie Bellie. And mes used to be (and still am sometimes) called The Cat From Hell.
Age: Us lady cats does not usually tells our age…but mes has been celebrating my birthdays on my blog for YEARS!!! Wes will be celebrating my 19th birthday on May 15.
Location: Me lives in Richmond, BC, but me has lived in Midway, BC, Calgary, AB, and Edmonton, AB. Mes has lived in 9 different castles.

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents? Hmmm, that was so long ago and mes was so furry angry at peoples mes prefers to forgets. Mes was a totally terrible cat me bitted and scratched and was thoroughly unpleasant. And that is how mes gotted the name The Cat From Hell.
What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home? After mes had been living there about six months mes started to sit in my Daddy’s lap…it was a long long time after that before mes would let my Mommy touch me. Now mes a cuddle bunny.
What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home? Purrhaps when mes climbed the shower curtain after mes jumped in the shower when mommy was having one…or shedding a whole sofa… or when mes gotted losted when wes was camping and spended a whole week in the wilds with the coyotes, the owls and the other wildlife…or maybe when mes locked Mommy and Daddy out of the truck, while it was running and the hairy slobbery sisters Bob and Sam and Kozmo were sleeping in the back seat…But the worst must be when mes shut down and deleted the Cat From Hell Blog.
Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why? Mes thinks mes has everybody who meets mes wrapped. Since mes started being nice, mes likes to kiss peoples!!! And my pawrents — mes them both wrapped! First though, mes was a total Daddy’s girl. But now mes lives with Mommy in Vancouver and Daddy lives in Midway and mes does not see him furry often.
What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you? That mes is a cute and tiny sweet cat! Mes is 5 and a half pounds of HELL!
❤ In Loving Memory of Sweet Nellie ❤
Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!
