Thankful Thursday

We have so many thankfuls this week, the kitties and I have decided to save our Thoroughly Poetic Thursday poem until tomorrow and share it along with our Fill-Ins.


Kizmet asked to start, as she has oodles of thankfuls.

She is thankful to everyone who visited her birthday celebration and left comments on the post. As we write this, comments from Tuesday and yesterday total 38. Comments will remain open on both posts through today. If you haven’t left a comment, you can still do so. If you haven’t been following us the last couple of days and are wondering why this is important, here’s the reason: We are having a commentathon. I will be donating $1 for each comment on those two posts to the Helen Woodward Animal Center.

The tax deductible donation will go toward votes for Kizmet in the Superhero Sidekicks Calendar Contest! Kizmet is currently in sixth place in the contest with 120 votes. She is sending out extra special thanks to Brian’s Dad (Terry Frum), Kevin Hattori (meowmeowmans), Sandee Clark, Susan McDevitt and Amy Sandy for voting for Kizmet through their own donations to HWAC. If you would like to join them, votes are $1 with a minimum purchase of five votes. Donations will be used by the Center to support their orphan pets and programs. Voting remains open through 5 p.m. PT, August 2. By clicking on the link above, you will be taken to the contest.

Kizmet will keep you posted on how she is doing. The top 12 vote recipients will each represent a month on the Center’s 2022 calendar.

Astrid would like to thank everyone who visited yesterday and left anniversary wishes for her and her husband of five years, Sampy, from Kitty Cat Chronicles. 

Mom Janet

I have some thankfuls this week as well; though I am going to save a couple of them for next week. If I don’t, this post will become unbearably long. 

I reached two milestones and received two badges on Peloton this week. One was for completing 400 meditation sessions and the other for a four-year streak of participation. I have never missed a week since I began on this journey 208 weeks ago. And during those 48 months I have missed very few days!



I also managed to be a first commenter, along with three others, on the Tuesday Teaser at Two Spoiled Cats and received this cute badge. 

Dad Tom, Mom Janet & Sawyer

As far as we know Sawyer has not had a seizure since May 24. You might wonder why I said, “as far as we know.” As you would suspect, we cannot be with him 24/7, and he has had seizures when we weren’t around. However, we always find the evidence later, and we have found none in the past month. Yippee!
