I am one Thankful Cat!




Hi my furiends! Today I pushed Mom away from the computer because I wanted to take the time to mew to you about a few things.

I may spend a large portion of my day sleeping, but during the time I am awake I am quite observant. Not much gets past me. As we are approaching the end of 2018 I have noticed that our world seems to be much colder, harder, and frightening than ever before. I watch my Mom when she turns on the TV every morning muttering (or crying) about yet another awful event that has taken place. Many of these events pertain to humans lashing out at each other, but often it is also humans lashing out at animals. This makes me sad. I don't want to become a fearful cat, I want to remain brave, strong and positive, so today I think it is important that I let you know about some things in my every day life that I am thankful for. Ready? Pull up your favorite pillow, grab a treat, and let's begin!




MOM AND DAD





Ok, I am going to make this part super quick because I don't want them to get a swelled head or anything, (but they ARE the ones who pawchase and distribute my daily sustenance so I must pay homage to them),I am EXTREMELY grateful for my Mom and my Dad. Mom was the one who first found me at an adoption event ten years ago at our local pet store. Mom called Dad and said "I found a special kitty that I want to adopt.", the rest is history. Dad, what can I say? My Dad is a champ. Every morning without fail I wake him up at 4am (give or take an hour either way) and suggest DEMAND that he feed me.


WINDOWS TO WATCH
THE WORLD GO BY
Ok all of you kitties with catios and NORMAL homes, you can stop laughing now! For some of us, this is as good as it gets. Yeah, I'm up high, not the best for squirrel watching but last I looked, BIRDS DO FLY!! Now I know the reason. the powers that be gave birdies wings so  that view deprived cats such as myself can still see them!  Sometimes in life you just gotta make the best out of what you have and be THANKFUL that you have it! 

THE VET AKA "DR.SMILEY" 
 Furiends you can once again STOP LAUGHING! YES I AM enjoying how "Dr.Smiley" was petting me in that photo. He is kind and gentle and remember kitties and woofies, I said that sometimes you just have to be THANKFUL and look for the good in EVERY situation! "Dr.Smiley" takes good care of me and keeps me healthy. To me that's a pretty darned good reason to have a blissful look on my face!

MY WOOFIE BROTHER


Yep I love him. I truly do. My woofie brother and I enjoy each other, we play chase, we watch TV, we have some serious conversations that are top secret!


BABY HARPER





This little one has brought more joy to our family in the almost 4 months since she was born, than any of us could imagine!!! She actually has the ability to calm down my Mama!!!!!! Now THAT'S HUGE!!


I hope you liked my list of all of the things I am thankful for. There are many, many more but I know that you have better things to do than to sit around reading my list all day.



and to everyone else, THANK YOU for "GIVING" of your time and attention  when you come and visit our blog. We realize you are super busy and we want you to know that we THANK YOU, LOVE YOU AND APPRECIATE YOU TOO!!!!!

  4. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you from all of us Cody! My Mom is like your Mom when she watches the morning news. It's scary and sad all rolled into one but Mom turns off the TV and plays with me and talks with Dad and things get OK again. The world is a difficult place right now. In OUR little world - here at home - things couldn't be better!

    Hugs to you!
    Love, Teddy and Mom too

  29. Happy Belated Thanksgiving! I know...I should have stopped by yesterday...but the Mom was "busy". She took Daddy's Car to get it serviced and his winter tires put on (so he could drive over the mountains to get home)and she cooked and cooked and cooked so he had meals to take home...after being away so long, she should have spent time doing what I need!
    Cody, Dakota I am so happy that you have each other and I am so very Thankful that I have Ninja to be my bestie!

  36. All good things to be thankful for. Even being up too high for good bird tv.

  37. Those are all wonderful things to be thankful for, especially the second-floor window perch. Mom started ignoring most of the "news". It's become a megaphone for the far left of far right, but the vast majority of us are somewhere in the middle, just trying to do the right thing and make this world a better place.
