Spotlight Thursday – Tribute to Nellie

27 Apr

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!

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.

Web/Blog Page:

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!

    We miss The Queen but feel her presence nonetheless……Angel Sammy is happy to be able to be with her at the Bridge but we know her Mommy misses her very much here on earth. She will always and forever be in our hearts. This was a great interview with her – she always “told it like it is” !

    Love, Pam and Teddy

    What a nice interview. Cat from Hell indeed, MOL! Our furst kitty Groucho might have been a good purrtner in kitty crime to her…and well, we are sure he was there at the RB Gates to greet her as well.

    We sure do miss her and all her Queenly doings.

    Thanks for posting this intermew in her honor, Bacon.

    What a fantastic interview! Nellie sure did seem to deserve her title, but she sure does also deserve our respect and love, for she was a mighty fine Queen Nellie, full of fun, love, and a great inspiration. I wonder how she destroyed that sofa?

    Mom and I both want to say how sorry we are for Barb and everyone left behind now that Nellie has gone on to wait for us all on The Bridge. Isn’t it weird how a heart can be empty and full at the very same time?

    We are so glad you did this interview, Bacon — a great tribute to a fur-friend I wish I could have gotten to know. When I my do future guest-blogs for Mom, I will add the badge in honor of Nellie.
    Woof! TINK
