Thankful Thursday - Thanksgiving Edition


I would like to start out by wishing everyone a happy thanksgiving.  Since the internet is global I know that not everyone who reads this is celebrating, but there is never a bad time to give thanks, so hopefully you will take a moment to remember to be thankful for something.

What I am thankful for is you. Yes, you, the you who would sit and read a cat blog. You who would right a cat blog. You who comment and tell me my kittens are cute, and complement me on the amazing job I do with kittens and call me names that make me blush like a blessing or an angel.  Fostering and volunteering at the shelter puts me in touch with the worst of humanity when it comes to animals.. I see things and hear things that make my toes curl and just make me hate people.. Being reminded daily that there are people who do not see what I do as a waste or stupid helps me do what I do.. so yes, every day you show up and comment you are making a difference in a kitten's life.. It may seem trivial, but trust me there are days when I am pretty sure I can't go on save for the fact that I know there are cat people out there..

So..

Thank you!!

and I'm also thankful for the following..

Jack
Muffin
Eli
Twee (aka Tweedle)
Kit (aka Daddy's Girl)
Fleurp
Skippy
The boys,
because seriously.. they are awesome.. 
The Fluffkits..
who all came out to eat when I was laying right next to the food dish
and a husband who sees value in spending time rubbing a Jack Belly.. 




I have a very full weekend ahead of me, hopefully I'll have time to share with you all before Monday, but I'm not going to stress over it if I don't..

  13. I am thankful for humans like you, who work so hard to socialize kittens so that they get adopted into happy homes. It is impossible to overestimate what you do for these babies.

  15. We're thankful for you too! Not everyone has the love and talent to foster animals. You are a hero to all of those furrpeople. I hope you had a terrific Thanksgiving :)

  16. Such a wonderful post Connie! Your crew is looking very good! Jack is such a cutie (I'm beginning to think that all grey kitties LOVE affection) and such a darling picture of Smed & IA! Hope you had a really nice Thanksgiving Day and that you have a great weekend ahead!

  17. Happy Thanksgiving to you.

    I don't celebrate here in Liverpool but I agree that it's nice to have a time to give thanks, and we are all thankful to you for allowing us to share in what you do, and be able to feel like we know the kittens you foster (and make us all slightly broody for another kitten or two!)

    It was lovely to see all the pictures of the Crew together again! There is absolute value in rubbing Jack's belly. Anyone who doubts it needs to do some re-evaluation in my opinion!

  21. Happy Thanksgiving to you, Connie. I too am grateful to you and your husband for all the love you lavish on the kitties, both fosters and permanent residents alike. And thank you too for the educational posts interspersed with the cute photos. I came to this blog for the kitten pictures, and have stayed for those and for all I have learned from you about quality cat and kitten care. Keep up the great work! I'm sure you will. Have a good weekend.
