Sophie here! As many humans are currently hustling and bustling about, preparing meals, tidying up the house and welcoming guests, I thought I would take this time to tell you what I am – I mean – what we three chatty cats are thankful for this Thanksgiving.
1) Full bellies
As you may remember, we three kitties were all strays that found our way to the humans, and the Mama and the Pops took us in. Dexter and Olive were much younger when they found our humans, but I was about six months old, so I know and remember what it’s like to not have a full belly after every meal. I am so very thankful for my full belly. The Mama sometimes makes fun of my primordial pouch, but I like to think it is there to store extra food, just in case. But thankfully, I haven’t had to put it to use yet.
2) Warm beds and lots of snuggling
The weather is finally starting to turn mild here in Southern California (notice how I didn’t say cold?). Although we don’t need the heater yet, we sure do appreciate warm beds. We’ve been snuggling up more to the humans lately, and I know they love that. None of us are lap cats, but we’ll tolerate a snuggle or two. Mostly we like to snuggle with each other. And by with each other, I mean me and Dexter. Or Dexter and Olive. But never, EVER me and Olive. Anyway, we’re adding warm beds and snuggling to our thankful list.
3) Our woofie brother
We don’t often talk about our older brother, but Eddie was here first. And although we’re not BFFs with him, we are thankful to have this woofie in our lives. He keeps us on our toes and he’s the fierce protector of our house. Thank you, Eddie. We love you (even when we hiss at you).
Can you believe that it actually rained here on Monday? It was pouring buckets outside! So, we’re thankful for any sunpuddles we can find. And luckily, we can usually find plenty of them. Here’s my
beautiful sister Olive hogging the sun. We’re very thankful for sunpuddles.
5) Friends like you
I’ll be honest. We don’t have kitty friends coming over all the time for play dates. But we certainly adore our blogosphere kitty friends. We’re also very close with some Instagram kitties (and woofies, too!). The Mama tells us all about your adventures and stories that she reads on your blogs and Instagram. We look forward to it every night when she tucks us into bed. (Okay, that doesn’t happen, but you know what I mean.) Thank you for being our friends. We are thankful for you!
I’m getting sleepy now and must go. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving, surrounded by family, friends and kitties!
What are you thankful for?
