Charlie is my little fur baby. He’s got his own little blurb on my About Me page, and I blogged about him here. He turns 1 on March 10th.

I found out about him when my friend Natasha posted a picture of him on her Facebook page. She had seen him while at her vet with her doggie. He had been rescued from Mississippi, and brought to New York. It didn’t take long for me to fall in love with him! I asked my mom, who told me to ask my dad, if it was okay for me to adopt him. When I went to bring it up with my father, I thought he was going to tell me no, or that I would have to prove to him that I was capable of taking care of him. But to my surprise, he said yes! They were willing to hold onto Charlie until I got back from Eileen and Kyle’s wedding in Florida, and then I drove to New York to get him.

He’s currently at the vet getting de-clawed. I’m sure this is probably a sensitive topic among cat owners. I respect everyone’s opinions. I’ve always grown up my whole life with de-clawed cats, and figured that the day would probably come when Charlie would be de-clawed as well! My dad is taking Abby to have a teeth cleaning, and is bringing Charlie with him. I’m going to go pick him up later.

Charlie is such a funny little guy. I’m sure these pictures show that. πŸ™‚

I also figured I would share a list of his nicknames. He has quite a few.

  • Chuckie
  • Chuck-A-Puck
  • Chucky-Pucky
  • Pucky
  • Charles
  • Cat-Dog
  • Chuck-easter
  • Chuckster

Do your pets have millions of nicknames?

    I couldn’t even tell you how many nicknames Cypress has had over the last few years…Dids, Diddler, Scrompit (new one), Scrands, and other nonsensical names. Your kitty is lovely πŸ™‚

    He looks just as soft as Robin! They’re definitely distantly (distantly!) related. Plus they apparently both like boxes. Does Charlie play with plastic bags? Those are Robin’s jam.

    We call her Robin, Kitty, Kee-Cat (that was mostly me but Kyle does it sometimes now too lol), Robin Sherbatsky (since she’s named after the HIMYM character) and Robin Sparkles. Sometimes I also call her a mischievous badger. And we both accidentally call her Arty all the time when she’s being particularly Arty-like.

    Also, Kyle, who claimed before that he was not on board with cat collars at all is now anxiously awaiting the arrival of hers. lol

    XOXO Twinnie!

      Well, we’re twins, so they are cousins… even if they aren’t really.
      I like her nicknames… and I’m not surprised that she gets called Arty every once in a while! Sometimes I have to say Charlie-Abby-Toby while I figure out exactly what pet I’m trying to talk to!

      And I apologize profusely for not having Robin’s collar sent out yet. ASAP, I promise! πŸ™‚

      Oh, and yes, Charlie adores plastic bags! They are his jam too.

      Thanks! I’m a pretty proud cat mommy!

        I miss having my cat around, though my dad takes pretty good care of him, so I can’t complain too much.

    I just noticed all of the pictures of him in boxes… he and Robin are definitely related!
