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!

Great post Sophie! We live where it gets cold, so we are also thankful for warm laps and electric blankets. And that we live in an old house that can’t be completely sealed, so we have mice to play with. (Mom’s not so excited about that one). Snoops and Kommando Kitty

What a sweet post. And I love the Dexter pics!
We’re thankful for all the same things (except for the woofie part)! Mudpie is especially thankful for the new fleece blankie she got this week to ward off the chill!
Happy Thanksgiving, guys! We’re thankful for a warm home and full nom bowls. And all of our friends.
Amen! I’m thankful that we found your blog this year. TW had a friend who used to call that ouch a “sea urchin.” MOL!
Great post Sophie! I adored your first picture. Actually they were all pretty heartwarming and you are lovable. You and Olive sound like Kali and I until recently. After riding in the stroller together, we sleep closer now……not touching but closer.
Great list except now it looks like we need to get a woofie!! Thanksgiving blessings from all of us at Zee and Zoey’s!
Happy Thanksgiving :-D
We thankful to be safe from the fires. Thanks for your for good thoughts about the fires. We are out of danger but the smoke is still in the air from other fires. Been a crazy few weeks. Happy Thanksgiving.
Those are all things to be very thankful for. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you and your human family, too.
Such wonderful things to be thankful for, dear ones. Happy Thanksgiving to you! :)

Love that last picture of the white cat. So beautiful, sweet and sleeeeepy. :)
I am a few days late, but this post just warmed my heart – and how adorable is Eddie!
I’m in Long Beach and I turned on the heater just before Thanksgiving. It was nice having all 5 cats on the bed for a few nights but now that there’s another heat source, they’ve given back some room (they’re all bed hogs!).
LOVE the pictures!
I came by from piglove today. How heartwarming!!! I love the wolfie, my standard poodle just passed away a few months ago, so I am in awe of so many cuddlers in one house. We are missing our love. Is your pup a schnoodle? I love the pic of the cats snuggling, You captured a gesture of comfort. I hate the idea of anything going hungry, cats, dogs, old people, babies… we’re all connected.

Thank you for stopping by! My in-laws have a standard poodle and we dogsit him occasionally. But alas, none of our pets cuddle with him when he’s in the house. We’re not sure what breed Eddie is because he was a rescue. Probably breed “cute” though! :-)
