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:

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!

Bashful is Off Again!

It seems like these days, Bashful comes home for a short rest, some fun with the family and then he’s off again to the unknown.  He came home from Virginia, went to the beach with mom/dad and stayed with us for about a week.

He introduced us all to Virginia who came home with him from his last adventure with Stuart.  Don’t let her demure looks fool you.  That girl knows how to rock some red lipstick and has a wicked sense of humor.  We all got to socialize last week and listen to Bashful’s adventures with Stuart.  They did so much!  And there was some things we can’t mention 🙂


We all helped him pack to his next mysterious destination Friday night.  Saturday morning, we all said adios and watched as mom/dad took him off to the airport.

Mom says that it never gets easy.  Of course, she cried and waited until she saw his plane take off.  She’s such a softy!

So where will he end up at?

So far, this is where he has been:


His first adventure –

He went to see Easy ( in Plumieux, France.  Talk about trouble – snorts.  He had a grand time there.

So let’s add up the mileage shall we.  4,186.00 one way = total trip give or take 8,372.0 miles.




His second adventure –

He went to see Stuart ( in Richmond, Virginia.  He did get in lock down here and even ran away with Stuart!  He also got into some ‘scotch on the rock’ – snorts.

So let’s add up the mileage on this one.  543.7 one way = total trip give or take 1,087.40 miles




Where will he end up this time?  Looks innocently around – I’m not saying.  The little rock has traveled over 9,459.40 miles so far on these two trips.  All I will tell you is (A) he needs to start accruing frequent rock flying miles – snorts and (B) this destination is further than these two combined :0 shocker huh?
