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 ❤

Spotlight Thursday – Meet Louis Dog Armstrong

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:  Louis Dog Armstrong

Age:  Ten years old in human years!

Location:  Vancouver, Canada

Web/Blog Page:  I have two web blogs because I am an overachieving, prolific writer. The first one is on WordPress and is http://www.louisbloggingdog.com. The second one is mostly about Blogville and is at louisdogslife.blogspot.com.  I am also on Google + and Pinterest as Louis the Blogging Dog.

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  Actually, I don’t have pawrents in the traditional way. I was adopted and brought to my forever home by Mimi and her two grandchildren. At that time, the three of them lived together. Mimi’s grandson, Eric, was eleven and Autumn, her granddaughter was ten.  I met the three of them when they came to meet my mom, who was a tall black poodle, and my mom’s family. I ruffed the two kids especially and I followed them all over the place while my two brothers just watched. That’s when my forever family and I fell in rruff wid each other.

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  The first night away from my mom (the black poodle) I cried and cried. But my new forevers were so comforting! Mimi had an old alarm clock that you wind up and it goes tick-tock. She turned it on and wrapped it in a soft towel and set it beside me when I was sleeping. I actually thought it was my mom’s heartbeat so I stopped crying and slept. I soon felt the love around me and knew I was home.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?   I think the dogs reading this will understand. One time when Eric was a teenager he left his X-box on the living room floor. The humans all went out somewhere, leaving me alone with it. I was upset that they left me so guess what? I peed and pooed on the X-box. The kids were so mad because my pee went right into the vents and it could never be cleaned. It also smelled disgusting. Plus warranties don’t cover dogs peeing inside X-boxes. Mimi was not angry with me because she said that trained dogs only pee and poo indoors when their peeps haven’t taken them out enough. She also said that junior peeps should not leave their game machines on the floor where dogs might have accidents on them.

 Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  Like I said, our family is not like most of the other families. And sadly, the one who I had my paws wrapped around the tightest was Autumn and she crossed the rainbow bridge when she was only 17 years old. We all miss her so much! Now I would say it is Mimi because she is home with me the most.  But Eric takes me for tons of walks and gives the best belly rubs.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  They don’t know how much I am tuned into their energy. And some humans don’t believe I can read and write, but the internet is changing that misconception.


Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!

Renovation Reveal Party!

 

Welcome to the Renovation Reveal Party for the Hotel Thompson or as my cousin called it the Casa Thompson!  My buddy Fozzie is going to co-host this party.  To get things started, please enjoy some wine, soda and some snacks.  Then sit back for the reveal and let us know what you think.  If you have questions, ask.  Mingle and have fun my dear friends!!


The following food was brought by Kali and Shoko of Canadian Cats.  Everyone be sure to try some of these Canadian delicacies.  I’m licking my lips now and fixing to jump in – YUMMO!

Poutine – French fries with gravy and cheese – how could you go wrong with this?  Beaver Tails – Now Beatrice and Billy were not harmed in the making of this sweet treat – 🙂  Beaver Tails are pastries shaped like beaver tails with chocolate and banana or chocolate and M&M’s.  Personally this little porker NEEDS one with banana and chocolate.  Nanaimo Bars – These are named after a city in Vancouver Island.  They have three layers of deliciousness – coconut, graham cracker crumbs, chocolate and custard.

Okay my friends – do you remember the ‘before’ pictures?  Let me remind you what they looked like okay.

 The front room was a cluttered mess as well as the kitchen area.  It was definitely time to ‘grow up’ and get a new look.  Below are now the ‘after’ pictures.


The entry way into the Casa Thompson.  The new sofa.  The new chaise – ❤

 **SPECIAL THANKS**

   Thanks to my friend Jean with Canadian Cats (Shoko and Kali) for the beautiful virtual potted plant for the new Casa Thompson.  It’s beautiful!  And thank you my friends for bringing food to the party – I’m still licking my lips!  And many thanks for the long phone calls, listening to me whine while drinking my wine 🙂

Thanks to my brother Easy and his mom for listening to my mom’s troubled woes during the ordeal – snorts – there were a LOT.  Your emails kept her sane… well okay as sane as she could be.

Thanks for my great co-host and partner in crime Fozzie.  You mean the world to us my sweet dear friend.  The phone calls, the emails, the rants and raves.

   Much love to all of YOU and to those that listened to the endless ramblings here in blogville about the renovation.  We were so glad that we could share everything with all of you my dear friends!!
