On my Mind this Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving one and all! 

I thought I'd take this opportunity to participate in Rhonda's On My Mind series. She posts a single photo on her Down to Earth blog each Friday (it's already Friday in Australia) and asks her readers to join in.

So here's what's on my mind today:

I know this totally makes me sound like a crazy cat lady, but I just can't help it. It just makes my little CatLady heart swell with gratitude to see all of my babies safe, happy, healthy and enjoying their Thanksgiving supper together. And I can't help but remember the moment I found each of them... cold, frightened, hungry and homeless.

I may not be able to affect much change in this crazy world of ours, but at least I can ensure that none of my babies will ever have to be out there fending for themselves again. And for that, I am truly thankful.

So Happy Thanksgiving from Jasper, Smoky, Princess, and Sputnik VonWiskars.... and of course, from me too!


  1. My cats and dog have also enjoyed a delicious meal today with us. Happy Thanksgiving! I recently found your blog and am so happy i did. Pet all your babies for me. ;-)

  2. There's nothing like the sight of healthy, contented cats to make me smile, especially knowing they were once cold, hungry, miserable cats.
    Happy cats :-)

  3. Awww! Bet they give thanks ("kitty thanks") everyday!!

  4. Connie - I suppose they are grateful... and certainly spoiled rotten!

    Misha - Thanks so much for stopping by. I'll give each of them a big smooch with your name on it.

    Rachel - They are little smile-inducing machines. It's pretty hard not to feel happy when surrounded by such feline furriness.

    Jay - Purrs and head-butts all around...

  5. Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful - from one crazy cat lady to another :-)

  6. Hi Martha,

    Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful too.

  7. Happy fish paté day from Lily, Bob, Penny, Ellen, Max, and Tucker. They've been fat and warm long enough to take it for granted, which I guess is the point.

  8. Ha! I guess Thanksgiving should have been called "freeze dried chicken sprinkles on Weruva Paw Lickin' Chicken" day around here! Hope your day was a happy one!
