Spotlight Thursday – Meet Charlie

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!

Wags and Waves for Forrest Day

Welcome my friends to Wags and Waves for Forrest Day!  This day was put together by our Auntie Sharon of Gentle Stitches.  It’s a day created to help our friends Fozzie and her family at All Fur One and One Fur All  in the loss of their anipal Forrest (06/06/2003 – 04/27/2016) who is now an angel watching over all of us here.

Today, we are wagging and waving our tails as a tribute to a great guy in support of his family who is going through a rough time – as you can imagine.

Please my friends – I hope that you support the cause and do a posting on your blog today for this cause.  And if you get a chance, go visit Fozzie at  All Fur One and One Fur All  and let them know you are thinking of them.  You can also use this awesome badge that Sammy from One Spoiled Cat created.

 


And here we are my friends – our participation to Wags and Waves for Forest Day.  We know pal that you are watching over our Mouse Girl. ❤

Anipal Appreciation Day

Welcome my friends to blogville’s first annual Anipal Appreciation Day.  Me and my Cousin Sammy have collaborated together to initiate this day every year on February 15th.  What better time to get together and share the love than the month of February.

Rules for Anipal Appreciation Day:

  1. Post your Anipal Appreciation Day blog on FEBRUARY 15, 2016.
  2. Title your blog Anipal Appreciation Day.
  3. Put the badge below on your blog post for the day.
  4. Give shout outs not only in the posting of your blog but throughout the day with the comments you may get.  There is no set number of shout out’s you are required to do – let your heart lead you.  We are *not* leaving anyone out.  If you don’t make the post on a blog, be sure to check messages and comments throughout the day that people and anipals might leave.
  5. If you can, link back your shout outs in your blogs for them to find.
  6. HAVE FUN!  This is the most important rule – have FUN and share the LOVE!

Cousin Sammy – I’ve known him for years now.  He is a great guy – a bestest friend and always willing to lend a helping paw.  He goes out of his way to make you feel loved and welcomed even though at times I know he doesn’t feel well.  And you know what?  He gets that from his humans.  And technically, he and I *may* be related somewhere down the road with his parents and my parents being second, third or fourth cousins or something.

Brother Easy – Dude!  He is funny, he is kind, he is a hoot and he has the hardest job keeping his staff in line with their own antics.  And you know what?  Any time you need something, he is always there for you with a helping paw.

Felix – Now we all know the regular guys from Fozzie’s world – Dinnermintz, Doc, Forrest, Marbles, Cleo, Jacque, Pickles and Oscar (Did I miss anyone?)  Do you know Felix?  I mean all of this clan hold a special place in our hearts here at the Hotel Thompson but Felix especially.  Why? Because Felix gave up some wool and Fozzie gave it to another person that is special in our hearts – Auntie Sharon.  Auntie Sharon then spun that beautiful wool and made Fozzie, herself and my mom a scarf to keep their necks warm in the cooler weather.  In fact, my mom calls her scarf Felix.  Cool huh?  You gotta love this bunch from down under ❤

Shoko and Kali – WOWZER!  These are the coolest cats I’ve met in Canada.  You know what is even more cool – if that’s possible?  My mom/dad have met their mom/dad in real life.  Yep nods head.  They have and they had a BLAST together. Talk about laughing until your tummy hurts.  They are all a cool bunch!

Reilly and Denny – They are an awesome duo that live in a wonderful place full of beaches, sand and the sun.  They are beyond creative in finding their adventures from trails, their backyard (minus the snakes please) to roaming the beaches looking for trinkets to keep.  I would love to hang out with these and have fun running and exploring.

Cupcake – I’ll let everyone in on a secret with something about Cupcake.  The little pooch here – Houdini – has a *thang* for Cupcake.  He loves her.  He pulls her blog up and watches her picture for hours dreaming about running, playing and watching the movie Lady and the Tramp together.  Shakes piggy head.  He has it bad.

Dante – You talk about big things coming in little sizes – this is that.  Dante is what maybe 6 pounds (kind of like Houdini) and has the biggest heart.  He is always inspiring us to be nicer – to do more – to smile and give love.  And in this day and time, we need all of the love we can share.  Right?

Little Binky – Smiling and shaking my head.  I love Little Binky and his granny.  I watch him in his backyard looking around and playing around his new house.

Sam – Did you know that Sam is part of a therapy team with his mom?  He brings smiles to patients in a hospital and hospice care.  I’m telling you my friends, Sam brings a smile to my face just reading his blog and his adventures.  He’s a friend that is always giving and giving.

Of course, the list can go on and on and on for days.  These are just ‘some’ of the people that have touched our lives here at the Hotel Thompson.  It is in no way – ALL.  In fact, throughout the day, I’m sure I will be adding more and more here and there and in the comments.  We love you ALL here in blogville.  And believe it or not, YOU have touched our lives here.  You bring smiles to our faces, you touch us when we are down, you make us laugh/snort.  We talk about you to our friends – which is hilarious to here.  Yes, YOU are a HUGE part of our lives.  Each and everyone – from being listed to those that maybe we don’t even talk to but every couple of days.  YOU inspire us.  YOU hold a special place in our heart.  We grieve with you.  We laugh with you.  We joke with you.  YOU ARE FAMILY MY FRIENDS.

Happy Birthday Fozzie!!

Oh friends – today is FozzIMG_0176-0.JPGie’s birthday.  Please remember her today and bounce over to her blog to wish her a happy birthday!

Fozzie is my cohort.  – my partner in crime if you will.  Fozzie is my friend when I’m having a great day or bad day.  She ❤ me when I’m sweet Bacon or deviled Ham.

Fozzie is special to us here at the Hotel Thompson.  We may be on the other sides of the world – but when we talk it feels like we are side by side.  I can’t say enough great things about Fozzie.  She’s that special kind of woman who can bring a smile to your face even though she may be suffering in pain.  She’s that kind of friend that you don’t talk to for days and all of a sudden when you do speak, it’s like it was yesterday.

So from all of us here at the Hotel Thompson, we wish you a very special HAPPY BIRTHDAY!  May all your dreams come true my sweet dear friend!

APB (All Points Bulletin) – BOLO (Be On Look Out)

20140715-092150-33710497.jpgEnough said?  Mommy saw these on line but hasn’t been able to find them in the stores yet.  She is foaming at the mouth… literally.  I don’t know why.  She’s not suppose to be looking at sweets – she’s suppose to be on that four lettered bad word…DIEt.  But then again, aren’t the humans *always* on a DIEt?  

I have to admit these do look intriguing in purely an educational way.  Chocodiles – what a name?  Makes me think of my friends Fozzie and Auntie Sharon from down under.  

Have you seen these temptations in your store yet?  If so, please tell me what they taste like… are they good… are they tempting?… are they worth the effort of putting an APB and BOLO out on the boxes?
