Winston kitty and the thankful list

 Mom was reading one of her favorite blogs earlier this week, Just Cats by Deb, and saw a posting on things that make you smile.  We thought that was a great idea and thought we would put together a list.  Winston kitty is thankful for boxes and for the straw that Mom gave him.  A straw just for him!  Plus, just before Mom leaves in the morning, she throws treats for Winston so he will be distracted have a lovely nibble.
 Oscar kitty is thankful for warm lamp light, comfy afghans and snuggling up to  Mom when it's time for her to sleep.
 Lucy kitty is thankful for supervised escapes into the hallway, scratching the carpet without being reprimanded and lots and lots of brushings and cuddles.  Mom also made Lucy a comfy kitty burrito blanket!  Lucy loves those!

Mom is thankful for a recent walk at dusk.  There was a beautifully soft breeze and a singing robin.  Mom says something about a robin singing makes her heart feel peaceful    Plus, she saw some beautiful daisies nodding at her as she went by.
Take care all.

 PS--Lucy is getting lots of love and , even just today, she went all flirty kitty when I was brushing her and gently patted my hand with velvet paws.  She enjoys soaking up lots of sun.  She just isn't really eating.  We thank you for your purrs and prayers.  Have a great weekend!


  1. It's wonderful to get things you love, and even better to be able to provide them to others!

    Lucy, we all are thinking about you as you make your journey towards the unknown...purrs and love from the Lounge.

  2. Those are all wonderful things for which to be thankful, both the cat and the human-related things.

    Lucy, we too are purring for you, as you prepare to cross. Our human does not believe that the ego, the self, continues after death....but then, she had that experience of seeing Annie a year after her death. And when our human was much younger, she had an experience that she can only explain via reincarnation. So while humans may believe whatever they wish, no one knows, and we think that energy is energy--and that never can die. We *are* all connected, and so when it's your time, we know whatever energy is *you*, in some way, some how, still will be with your "mom."

    So we purr and purray for peace and for mercy for you, and for your human too.

  3. I'm thankful for visiting this blog and seeing your lovely family.
    Kisses to all,and soft whispers to Lucy.
