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??
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!

Today, we have a really special tribute. Today is Friday the 13th – cue scary music! Do you know that there is only ONE Friday the 13th in the entire 2014 calendar year? That makes this day extra spooky and scary.
Do you have a fear of this day? Are you superstitious? Here in the United States it is thought that bad luck falls upon you on Friday the 13th. But did you know that in Spanish speaking countries, Tuesday the 13th is a superstitious day for them and considered bad luck.
Many hotels and tall buildings even skip the 13th floor… just in case of bad luck. It’s also bad luck to have a party with 13 people… have you read Agatha Christie’s book Thirteen at Dinner?
Did you know that fear of the number 13 is called triskaidekaphobia while fear of Friday the 13th is known as paraskavedekatriaphobia.
Did you know that President Franklin D. Roosevelt suffered from triskaidekaphobia? He wouldn’t travel on the 13th day of any month and don’t even think about having a party with 13 guests.
Some people even think that Friday the 13th goes back to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. Supposedly they think that Eve offered Adam the forbidden fruit on a Friday and they were then cast out of Paradise.
And think about the movie marathon we are going to have tonight here at the Hotel Thompson. Not listed in any particular order but you know we are going to be watching some gory horror flicks to include: Nightmare on Elm Street, Paranormal Activity, Saw, Psycho, The Shining , It and of course Friday the 13th.
I’m off now. I’ve got to go cross my hooves. Avoid some black cats. Not look at the moon through a pane of glass and throw some salt over each shoulder. Be careful my friends 🙂
