Spotlight Thursday – Tribute to Nellie

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:  http://nellieontheedge.blogspot.com/

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!

Travels in the South

Welcome my friends to another week of Travels in the South.  This week, mom/dad found something delicious and decadent.  Something they had to share because you know sharing is half of the calories, right?

Now, I won’t tell anyone you were drooling while you were looking at that picture.  Nope.  That will just be our little secret.  Are you wondering what it is?   This is a white creamy cheesecake on a graham cracker crust swirled with white chocolate curls topped with fresh strawberries and whip cream.  THUD!  That would be my little piggy mouth hitting the floor.  It sounds marvelous but mom/dad said it tasted even better.  It was sweet but no so that your teeth ached afterwards.  The cost was less than $5.00 and mom/dad said it was more than enough – even for two people.  Who can turn down a good cheesecake?  In fact, where is mine.  Oh mom/dad….

Paw Time with Houdini


Barks!  Hello friends.  I hope you have had a wonderful week.  A lot of people ask us about our nightly routines here at the Hotel Thompson.  I wanted to share one with you on how I go to bed every night.  It usually starts on the sofa with my mommy with my favorite night time friend.  This night time friend is special to me.  My nana gave it to me and helps me have wonderful dreams at night.  How do you ask?  Well, I had mom take a video of me with it.  Hope you enjoy!

And now I leave you with Jokes with Daddy – have a great weekend!

Barks!  Now that I have your attention my friends, I must share something fabulous with you.  Something that is so exciting – something that I have been keeping a secret for two entire weeks.  And you know for a terrier to keep something a secret – that just blows your little doggy mind!  Okay – Okay – let me *try* to calm down for a minute and give you some back up information.  Some of you may remember reading about DOGtv on my weekly Paw Time with Houdini series.  If you missed it, you can check out my postings here and here.

I absolutely ❤ DOGtv.  I wrote them an email straight from my puppy heart.  And they extended all of my friends here two months of on-line subscription free when they sign up for one month at DOGtv using the code PIGLOVE at checkout.  It’s really a cool channel just made for us pooches.  I watch it every night before I go to bed.  It’s kind of like my nightly routine here at the Hotel Thompson.

Well friends, I want you to check out something that came out today on-line with the newspaper USA Today.  You will absolutely not believe who made it in the paper – coughs, barks, grunts and then smiles with happiness.  I’ve even copied the article below for your convenience.  Guess who is doing the happy dance at the Hotel Thompson?

I want to take this point to give a shout out to USA Today and Jueun Choi – barks you’re the best!

Travels in the South – Bacon Version

Let’s talk shall we.  I help mom/dad post all of the time with their Travels in the South and it’s about time I shared one of my own.  Right?  Can I get a snort-snort.  As some of you know, every morning for breakfast I get a cup of piggy chow and a little Cheerios to start my day.  All of us have to be a little heart smart these days.  Well over the weekend, mom found me something that was better than my normal oats Cheerios.  I know!  I didn’t think that was possible either.  I oinked and told her that she was wrong that nothing could ever – EVER – replace my morning Cheerios.  This pig has standards.

Let me tell you my friends – I was wrong!  Yep, you can repeat that in conversation.  I, Bacon, was wrong!  What mom got me was better than my oats Cheerios.  Why do you ask?  Because there’s one other thing in this world that I love more than life itself.  What is it my friends?  That’s right – strawberries.  I could eat my weight in them and trust me that’s a lot of weight.

Have you tried these marvelous strawberry Cheerios?  I’ve even caught daddy eating them out of my box.  Tsk-tsk daddy – get your own!  I haven’t had anything this good from Cheerios since they came out with Pumpkin Spice last year.  And yes I shared those with my mommy ❤  See I love mommy.

IF you see them in your market, BUY THEM ALL.  They are a limited edition and going FAST.  Tell them Bacon said so – snorts!

Travels in the South

Oh friends!  What a week it has been.  With mom recuperating from her car accident, we have all been trying to be nice to her.  After one doctors appointment last week, mom was craving some comfort food.  Nothing screams southern comfort more than this picture, right?  For those that don’t recognize that awesome glory, let me break it down for you.

Those two delightfully brown looking pieces on that plate, that would be boneless fried chicken.  You see chicken of any kind is like one of mom’s fall to foods when she is feeling really icky.  And personally I think these past couples of weeks qualified for just that.

Mom ordered the chicken with green beans, a side salad and white gravy on the side.  What was the gravy for?  Of course to dip that wonderful chicken into before eating it.  You’ve never done that before?  You are so hidden from southern comforts.  You must try it.

So you see mom didn’t do too bad but she sure felt better afterwards. ❤
