Let's talk family

I'm not talking about the nuts in my family and there are a few but I think we all have them. Some are just peanuts, bland and not roasted and some are the cashews, salted, roasted and have a bit of a curve to them. In the end, they're all nuts and we are glad we see them on certain events and glad when we can say, " Adios!" and travel home to our other family.....the furry kind.

This is a story of a wacky lady who had no girls with golden curls and was so happy to have dodged that bullet. One day this whack-a-doodle met this ADHD fella and they knew it was much more than a hunch. So when they got together, they ended up being the wack-a-doodle  family with some fur nuts.

The first one came with the hubby. He( the cat not the hubby) was a tiny thing who fit in the palm of my hubby's hand and he named the cat, Maddie, after his niece who pleaded with him to take the cat. Hubby took the cat that grew into a huge male cat so the name changed to Naddie.  Naddie likes to hang out and not be bothered much and especially loves the outdoors. He loves it so much that, when he has to come inside, hubby has to throw a blanket on him to make sure his blood stays inside his body. This cat has a big red sticker beside his name at the vet because Naddie likes a pound of flesh.

Now you think he is all male, but I think he has a little Bruce Jenner, er, Caitlyn Jenner in him because he is the biggest whiner I have ever heard. He whines for his food and can't even give a good hearty meow. He does more a "Meh" sound...constantly! I wish that cat would meow like he's supposed to but nope, he just "mehs"  unless he is sleeping. He lets us know when his kitty litter needs changing because he decides to crap outside  the box...anywhere he feels like it. In fact, he will do this if there is  just one crap in his huge litter box. The litter box was built by my hubby who never thinks small.....it's the size of a small football field.  Anyway, gender-bender Naddie  is a big softie who can tear a strip off you if he so chooses but is often just laying around looking bored.

Name: Naddie
Age: 11 years
Nickname: Naddiekins, Whiner, Faggy-Waggy
Loves: Sleeping, The outside on a leash), Hanging around, Being petted by your foot, Whining, ignoring you
Favourite friend: Lucy
Favourite Food: Eating his and then trying to have the other cats' food




I have made cards but I haven't downloaded them besides, I haven't written about whatever for a while and so I thought I would start off with my family. Yes, they purr and bark but I like that more than crying and, (Blecchhh) a face full of cake. Ick... So who is going to watch the comedy special starring the Pantsuit and Orange nut??

  1. Hi, Birgit!

    Thank you for introducing your kitty cat. It seems like a good number of bloggers are running cat posts this week, myself included. Naddie is a strikingly handsome fella and I have no doubt that he can draw blood when provoked.

    I hated cats all my life until a few years ago when an abandoned orange stray kitten started living on my property and I bonded with it. Mrs. Shady wouldn't allow a cat in the house so I bought it a carpeted cat igloo and fed it daily for two or three years. We don't know if he decided to move on, was run off by another cat in the neighborhood or was attacked by coyotes that inhabit the area.

    Thanks again, dear friend BB, and have a wonderful week ahead!

    1. My mom didn't believe in Animals being in the home either. They were always outside and one cat, I really wished we had inside...poor thing

  2. Such a cute cat :) I have never had a cat as a pet. I used to threaten our corgi, Koda, who hated cats that if he died we would replace him with a cat. He died, but no cats yet (ever??). They bring such joy to our lives, I think your's does the same!

    1. It's always a great thing to have an animal in your home. They bring so much joy even if you want to kill the on occasion:)

  3. Beautiful cat! They all have their quirks, don't they? As do the humans - I like your extended nut analogy. I will now be classifying my family into peanuts and salted cashews.

    1. Yes, I have an eclectic mix in my family so there are so many nuts I could choose. Who would be a Brazil nut??

  4. I always had cats growing up, but I am highly allergic - which is probably why I was always sick growing up. I will be watching a movie that I DVR'd. Nuf said.

    1. Ooooh...that's not good. I know someone who loves cats but can't have any due to allergies. That sucks

  5. Haven't lived with a cat in many a long year but always like to read about them. Naddie looks a handsome puss cat.

  6. Oh my gosh, Naddie looks so much like my old cat Thomas! I had to do a double-take when I scrolled down and saw the pics. I had Thomas for 15 years and he was such a sweetie.
    Looking forward to seeing more of your furry family. <3

    1. Oh wow! It's always cool to see an animal of yours look so much like someone else's. Thomas sounds like a cool cat who was great loved

  7. lol lots of nuts we don't want to stay but the furry ones sure do. Mom has one that craps where ever he wants if the litterbox isn't perfectly clean. Another that likes to pee down the shower drain. All have their quirks indeed

    1. Ok...the shower drain is unique! At least it's in a drain.

    I've rarely heard a cat that could make a proper meow.

    1. I was never a cat lover but my hubby changed me. Right now I am watching our one cat hump a cushion. Dogs are always great even if they are ball less.

    1. It's so nice to see you Here Drew. I always enjoy seeing your comments. I think you would love cats but their dander don't like you sadly

  18. This was cute. I enjoyed getting to know your cats. I have four nutty cats, too. None of them like a dirty kitty box. One yells at me when it's bed time. His twin licks himself too much that he goes bald. Another likes to rip holes into plastic Walmart bags with his nose. And the fourth has a toy that he keeps purposefully hiding under my coffee table.

    1. Your cats sound like a barrel of fun. It's amazing how different each cat is and I smile at the one who hides the toy under the coffee table

    1. We watched it also and my hubby said, "Why the hell is he breathing like that." And then he mimicked the idiot. I wonder if he had too much crack before he came out.

  21. We had Roscoe for 14 years before we realised that he was actually a she. We still call him boy tough, no point confusing him this late in life.

  24. Yup. I watched the comedy special. It was a good one. I don't understand how people were surprised that Orange Nut acted normally out of control.

    Naddie is a handsome due with his green eyes. He speaks the same language as our Molly the Cat. Meh this. Meh that.
