Thankful Thursday

Kizmet is here today to tell you her thankful and a little more about herself. 




I suspect most of you will have already guessed my thankful: I have a real furever home and no longer live in a cage. It is an amazing home, filled with playmates, cat trees, toys, lots and lots of windows and the best humans. I heard there is a cool thing called a catio, but I haven’t seen it yet. So that will be something for which I can be thankful in the future after I get to explore it.

Mom promised I would tell you a bit more about myself today. Here’s what I know. The six-month anniversary of my birth was yesterday. I was born on June 23 and had two litter mates, Jackie and Chris. Chris found a home prior to me, and Mom says Jackie is no longer on PetFinder, so that means we all three now have forever homes! What a great Christmas gift for all of us.

My fursibs and I were transferred from the regional animal control center to the no-kill shelter, Angels of Assisi, in November. My intake form said I was overweight. I already weighed seven pounds in November. That’s what happens when one is stuck in a cage and cannot exercise. My new Mom and Dad think I’ll drop that extra weight easily, as I have been charging around and playing like crazy since I got here on Saturday. My favorite toy is a mouse that hangs from the door frame on an elastic cord. There are two here, and I have been giving them both some major whaps several times each day. It is really great exercise!

As you can see, I have gorgeous gray fur. I also have a white spot about the size of a nickel on my neck. (You can’t see it in this photo.) My eyes are still in transition, so we do not know what their final color will be. I do have a small freckle on the inner edge of the pupil of my right eye. 

Mom says I am the most socialized of any kitten she and Dad have ever had. I walked right in as if I had always lived here. Mom and Dad sequestered me for only 24 hours. In fact I have been sleeping on the big bed with Mom and Dad and three or four of my new fursibs every night except the very fist one. For the most part, they seem to be okay with it and me.

I am delighted with my new home, my new humans and my new housemates, and I show it by purring often and loudly. And I look forward to getting to know all of you who visit and support Kitties Blue. 

Purrs and paw-pats, Kizmet

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Usually I would share a poem with you today as part of the poetry challenge hosted by Teddy and Angel Sammy from Two Spoiled Cats. However, I promised this post to Kizmet. And the inspiration photo will make for a perfect Christmas-themed poem for tomorrow. See you all again then.
