Happy Thanksgiving

Sammi & RavenIt's Thanksgiving Day and time to be extra thankful for all the wonderful things we have. As Indulged Furries, we have full bowls of healthy food, warm beds, toys, veterinary care, and owners who love us. We know we are fortunate to have so much.

Today, we're extra thankful that Raven was not seriously harmed last week when she ate a long piece of yarn. We were very lucky that it passed through her system with the help of medications and she didn't need surgery. She has returned to her playful, affectionate ways.

We're also thankful that Sammi's health continues to be good. She has absolutely no problems being a three-legged kitty and her medication & special diet keep her digestive system working properly.

I spent a couple hours at the animal shelter early this morning. They're closed for the holiday but the staff & volunteers were there making sure all the animals' cages got cleaned and making sure everyone had food, water, and clean bedding for the day. I will be back at 9am tomorrow to help out again, and I can't think of a better way to spend a day off from work. Helping care for shelter animals with other dedicated animal lovers is infinitely more rewarding than jostling among crowds of people at a shopping center.

The turkey is in the oven and the house is starting to smell like a holiday feast. There will be plenty for everyone.  We hope your holidays are as bountiful and love-filled as ours.
