Thankful Thursday

While many cats don't have a home or anyone to care for them, we know that from the day we were adopted until the moment we go to the Spirit World, we will be loved. We have a mom & dad who provide us a safe indoor home with everything we could need or even dream of wanting. We have a pantry full of good food, boxes full of toys, more perches & beds than we can count, and we even have our very own cat-sized arm chair.

We have the luxury of spending time sharing silly stories, but we also have the privilege of getting really good veterinary care and being able to share what we learn with others.

The only thing required of us is that we mind our kitty manners. Mom always says we're "indulged" not "spoiled".  That means we have to be cooperative when being groomed or having our pawdicures, we must always use the litter box (unless we're sick), and we must not scratch the human furniture. Sammi and I are not allowed to fight and we must share everything in the house. That's not a lot to ask of us considering all we get in return. Since our caretakers indulged us, we indulge them in return. We bring joy and liveliness to our home and make them laugh.

In these difficult times when so many people are having trouble caring for themselves and their families, we know we are very fortunate to have such wonderful lives. We hope you also have a lot to be thankful for.
