As today is Thanksgiving, you probably expected us to do a Thankful Thursday post. And you were right.

First: If you haven’t noticed, Mauricio wrote a Thanksgiving Poem, which we added to the side bar a few days ago. He did this for Cat Scouts…of course!

Second: We are thankful that our pawrents adopted us. We are thankful for our heated kitchen floor, sun puddles, nip and all our blog friends, who make this endeavor totally worthwhile.

Third: We are thankful to Me, You and Zu for this pawsome award. We don’t know how versatile we are as we mostly blog about ourselves, but we are grateful for the award and the support.


As with most awards, this one has some rules. We are required to tell you seven things about ourselves. Whenever we get a requirement like this, we always do eight so that each of us get to answer.

Lily Olivia: I used to be a can-can dancer prior to being hit by a car when I was about four years old.

Mauricio: I was a mime in one of my past lives, which is why I can’t shut up now.

Misty May: My name sake won’t let me play volleyball on the beach with her ’cause I consider the sand to be one giant litter box.

Giulietta: I used to have a perm, but I didn’t like looking like a miniature poodle.

Fiona: When everyone else is sleeping, I get on-line and read dog blogs.

Astrid: My name means “beautiful as a goddess” in Old Norse.

Lisbeth: I want to get my ears pierced, but Mom thinks I am too young.

Calista Jo: My secret wish is to play the part of Hello Kitty on Broadway.

We are supposed to pass this on to 15 other blogs. These are our nominees. Some of you have probably already received this award, but as this one looks different, we hope you will accept it as well. And we only have 12…sorry!

** Here Comes Noodle  **  Cats & Co  **  onespoiledcat  **  The Island Cats  **  Spitty Speaks ** A Tonk’s Tail  ** Friends Furever  **  Tomcat Commentary by Tim  ** Prancer Pie  **  Fur Everywhere  **  Jacquelines’s Cat House  ** Colehaus Cats **

And finally, we are thankful to Playful Kitty for this second award.

one-lovely-blog1 Though this award has no requirements attached, we do want to pass it on to a few of our friends. They are:

** Nylablue and Sherriellen’s Purrfect Pad ** Hannah and Lucy  ** Animal Shelter Volunteer Life ** The Island Cats ** Beaded Tail ** A Tonk’s Tail ** Bailey Boat Cat ** Tomcat Commentary by Tim ** Sushi’s Diary ** (Cat)achresis ** Fur Everywhere **  Furries of Whisppy ** Colehaus Cats **

Whether you are celebrating Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, both or neither, we hope you have a terrific day.

Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Oopsie, we are a leeeetle late–that’s the Human’s fault of course–me, I ain’t got the thumbs. Sigh.

Thanks for the pawsome award! We is honored! We did do it but I think it’s been awhile so we might do it again (I don;t think I can think of seven whole things–maybe 2? ha ha meow!)

We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day and maybe even got something a little special to eat??? XOXOXOXO
