MY BOY CHARLIE!

Today we are sharing our fur babies!  Charlie is my 12 year old cat!  He is a really sweet boy! 
Pretty Green Eyes
 I have had many cats in my lifetime but Charlie has been with me the longest and he is very special
I saw Charlie at a PetSmart and adopted him that day
It was love at first sight!
 Here he is when he was about 3 years old
 During our last move to this house Charlie was a big helper....
 He has been known to hide in plain sight

  and spend many hours out on the screened porch!

My boy Charlie!

Be sure to visit all the other pets over at 
Thanks Debbie for having this party and letting us all brag about fur babies!


Always,
Linda

That is a nice looking cat! My cats would love a screen porch, wish I had one. Debbies party has been so fun. I think next time we get a cat we should get pet insurance, if we buy it then we know we will never use it LOL!

He's a pretty cat, I can see why you fell for him so quickly!

Elsina said...

He is the cutest. Aren't they our best friends? Love your blogpost!

Troy said...

Having him that long, do you ever find that you can have a more intelligent conversation with HIM than you can with most of the HUMANS you know?

Farah Muzaffar said...

Charlie is handsome Linda, and he has stunning green eyes. He looks great for his age! Beautiful cat, and I thank you for sharing a very special part of your life with us.

The Decorative Dreamer said...

Aww! I love Charlie too! Just look at those beautiful eyes! It is amazing the places where cats will get to and hide out for a nap. I like that photo of Charlie with his eyes glowing. He looks quite magical there!

BECKY said...

Ann said...

You can tell Charlie is full of personality! Don't you love to looks at their baby pics!

Hope you and Charlie are together many many more years!

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Linda, he is beautiful and it is so nice that you rescued him.

De tout, de rien said...

Charlie is a very handsome boy!

I adore cats. They very sensitive and intelligent creatures.

Aren't cats the greatest! Pet Charlie for me!

Charlie is a pretty boy! I love cats, because they'll sprawl out in the craziest places, and then look at you like you're the crazy one!
Happy Monday!

Olive Cooper said...

Linda, Charlie is gorgeous and I realise how much you love him. Mine is my constant companion. ♥O

Ann in the UP said...

Oh, Linda, thanks for the album of Charlie pictures. He's a beauty and you know how I love cats!

He was a darling kitten, too, but I have never seen a kitten I didn't love. I hope being a crazy old lady with a houseful of cats isn't in my future...

I don't dare help at the animal shelter. I'm a hopeless rescuer.

Glenda/MidSouth said...

He is adorable!

The Happy Homemaker said...

What an expressive face! I can see why you fell in love:)

Diann said...

Awwww...fun pictures of Charlie! Oh, BTW, look for a heavy box to arrive either Wednesday or Thursday! LOL FINALLY!!

Charlotte said...

What a beautiful cat. I didn't get a cat until 4 years ago but she died unexpectably after a year with me. No other can replace her.

Shelia said...

Hi Linda! Oh, your little Charlie is one handsome boy! What a pretty little face!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Charlie is so handsome! I love when you include him in your posts.

Betsy said...

What a cutie! I want to pick him up and hug him. We adopted a cat, Ernie, from the animal shelter years ago. He was 17 years old when we had to put him down 2 years ago. I miss him everyday.
Thanks for sharing Charlie with us.

GARAGE SALE GAL said...

Hi Linda, Charlie is just precious. What a cutie!

Happy Monday, sweet girl.

Hugs, Barb

Carol said...

Charlie is wonderful! The kitten picture is absolutely darling! I love how they watch whatever is going on - when you were moving, for example. Our cats love when we just rearrange the furniture!

kristin said...

what a handsome boy!
I have always had cats too and while I love all animals cats are and will always be my favorite.

I am going to have to go join up with this party! such a great idea!!

sissie said...

Hi Linda!
Now you know how much I love your Charlie boy...he's adorable.
Gizzie and Gabby are sitting here beside me checking him out. Gizzie is, of course, in love with Charlie and Gabby knows she doesn't stand a chance! LOL.
Oh how they can melt our hearts and bring so much joy to our lives.

hugs
Sissie

Charlie looks like such a sweet and friendly cat! I see he likes the kitchen cupboards too! I once couldn't find my cat Jordan for two days. I was afraid he'd run away somehow. I was brokenhearted and couldn't stop crying about it......Then I head the smallest "meow" And there he was in the very back of the kitchen cupboard lazy susan. He hadn't made any noise that I'd heard until then....I love him to bits but he is one naughty kitty at times! *winks* Vanna

Love the green eyes. I have only had a few casts in my life. Yours looks so sweet.

Susan said...

Linda! I absolutely love Charlie!! He is a gorgeous cat!!

SavannahGranny said...

I love Charlie. I remember him from previous posts. I prefer cats for myself.He is very handsome and seems to know it. While I am petless right now my last kitty was with me for almost 19 years. I still miss her. Hugs, ginger

They are absolutely adorable. We used to have cats, after loosing the last one, I didn't want any animals.. now we have the 2 dogs and can't imagine being without them. hugs ~lynne~

Linda said...

OH Charlie is a handsome cat! Such a cute little nose and great markings! Thanks for your sweet comment on my pug post!

Charlie is one handsome dude. I think he and my female, Murray, would make a wonderful couple. Does Charlie date?

Chatty Crone said...

Charlie is so beautiful or should I say handsome. Sweet, very sweet. sandie♥

Jacqueline said...

I had to laugh when Happier Than a Pig in Mud said her pets were dust bunnies! That would be the only pets we have too. We both grew up with cats and adore them but are soooo severly allergic to them, wonder we ever survived childhood. How I wish I could have one. We had a Charlie too and he was Mom's favorite. He was golden and soooo sweet. Enjoy charlie.

Rosie said...

That is the most beautiful kitty! We can't have cats because my son is terribly allergic to them. He can only handle dogs with poodle hair. We took in 2 stray kittens once. Oh, they were so adorable, but we had to give them up. Charlie looks so precious! I'll bet he's a mama's boy!

dogsmom said...

Thank you for visiting and giving me something to smile about today. I am so out of sync and out of touch. I did not know about Debbie's Pet Party! I think I need some thrift therapy.

Charlie has a resemblance to my Clem who I adopted from 2 older farmers, one of whom was named Clem. He is the most muscular cat I have ever owned and loves to snuggle. He can knock me over.

Bonnie@Creative Decorating said...

Charlie is just beautiful! We had a cat who lived to be 20 years old before I had to put her to sleep. She was my wedding present from my husband who doesn't care for cats. That made her even more special. Enjoy Charlie!!

Krafty Kat said...

Charlie is adorable! I am a "cat person" and spent several years working in a vet's office. Great pics!

bj said...

He is indeed a beautiful boy...
