To Hell in a What?!

I think mom might have said this once… or a dozen times that she and a friend might be going to hell in a handbasket – snorts with piggy laughter

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!

31 Days of Spook – Selfie from Hell

There I was last night all cuddled up in my Egyptian cotton sheet on my toddler bed in my bedroom.  I was writing some stories and doing research for my 31 Days of Spook – which I hope you are enjoying.  Someone sent me a video about selfies.  I opened it and watched the video.  Oh.my.piggy.heavens.  Are you kidding me?!  I peed on my bed.  I can admit it.  It scared me that much.  You don’t believe me?  Well, why don’t you watch the attached video in its entirety.  It’s relatively short.  Don’t say I didn’t warn you though – it’s not for the weak.  Maybe you’ll think about it the next time you take a selfie.

31 Days of Spook – I Got a Spell on You

Happy October my spooky friends.  Today was my first day of 31 Days of Spook.  I think Winifred from Hocus Pocus said it best with the attached song, I Put a Spell on You.  Evil snorts – that means you have to come back every day to see what kind of spooky things I have to post and share.  Now everyone sing along with me and I’ll see you first thing tomorrow –

I put a spell on you and now you’re mine
You can’t stop the things I do, I ain’t lyin’
It’s been 300 years, right down to the day
Now the witch is back and there’s hell to pay

I put a spell on you and now you’re mine

Hello, Salem, my name’s Winifred, what’s yours?

I put a spell on you and now you’re gone
My whammy fell on you and it was strong
Your wretched little lives, have all been cursed
‘Cause of all the witches working, I’m the worst

I put a spell on you and now you’re mine
Watch out

If you don’t believe, you’d better get superstitious

Ask my sisters, ooh, she’s vicious
I put a spell on you, a wicked spell
I put a spell on you, sisters

Ah, say into pie, oppa mabey uppen die
Ah say into pie, oppa mabey uppen die
In kama koray, ah, ma
Hey, hi, say, bye, bye, bye bye

The BIG Announcement

 It has been so totally busy here lately at the Hotel Thompson.  We had the demolition and renovation.  We had the cleaning and cleaning and more cleaning from all of that.  We had new furniture and everything has been out of place – and we are *still* putting things back together.  Mommy really pushed herself too much during all of this time.  And THEN Bashful came home from his visit with Fozzie in Australia.  That’s when all hell broke loose.  Yep I said hell.  HELL broke loose here at the Hotel Thompson.  You don’t believe me do you?  Okay I’ll tell you.

Do you remember the first time Bashful went to Australia to spend some time with Fozzie and her anipals way back in December 2013?  You can read about some of that trip here.  I’m talking specifically about that trip when he made a movie called Rockodile Dundee co-starring Bimby.  Let’s just say that we thought some things got out of control with that bimbo – I mean co-star Bimby.

Well upon Bashful’s return trip to Australia in December 2014, he had some problems to take care of in the deepest forms.  You see, Bimby was pregnant after the making of the Rockodile Dundee movie.  Shocker huh?  Well she carried the baby for nine months and when Bashful returned to Australia, she said he was the rock daddy.  Now you can imagine Bashful’s shock from that. BUT, can you imagine the shock of Fozzie calling me (Bashful’s daddy) and explaining (A) Bashful was now a father and (B) I was now a grandfather?!  Oh dear piggy heavens – I can tell you that was one interesting phone call to say the least.

20140112-003228.jpgNot only was Bashful a father but Bimby was in trouble.  Bimby had started hitting the bottle – hard.  And she was letting herself go not taking care of the baby.  So what to do huh?  First things first.

Bimby went into rehab.  There was long conversations about what to do and the biggest thing was to put the baby first.  Of course a rock DNA was conducted just to make sure that Bashful was the father.  The results came back and they verified 99.9% that Bashful was the father.  Then Bashful and Bimby had a long talk about the welfare of the baby.  The baby was 3 months old and Bimby decided that she didn’t want to be a mother – she was to young to settle down.  And putting the best interest of the baby first, paperwork was drawn up by the attorney’s and Bashful now has custody of his son.

 So everyone here at the Hotel Thompson had to get everything ready for a new baby that would be soon arriving.  The nursery had to be set up, a pediarocktrician had to be lined up and of course everyone here had to be told what happened.  All of the rock clan were excited to have a new baby.  And I admit it.  I was rather excited to be a grandfather and to see my grandchild.  What would he look like?  What was his name?  Would he resemble us?  A lot of things were going through our minds.

Then the little tyke arrived here at the Hotel Thompson.  Oh my piggy heavens!  It was love at first sight with all of us.  The ooh’s and aaawws.  WOW!  So without further ado, let me introduce you to Chip.  Look at him!  How could we ever doubt his DNA?   He is quite the chip off the old block – you think?
