Again this week, Kitties Blue and I have a long list of thankfuls for Brian’s Thankful Thursday blog hop.
Kizmet asked if she could go first, and I could not deny the baby of the family. Yesterday she received official notification from the Helen Woodward Animal Center that she finished eighth in the Superhero Sidekicks Calendar Contest. She will have her own page in the 2022 calendar. So many friends generously donated/voted in an attempt to keep her in a high position. On the last day, however, there were some new entries with huge donations. Her entry brought in $715 in donations for HWAC, which we are all thankful for and pleased about. We are proud of her eighth place finish.
Sawyer has been home just over two weeks, which elicits a huge thankful from all of us. Cooper Murphy is no longer hissing and growling at him. The biggest thankful with regard to Sawyer is that he continues to be good about eating and getting all his meds. He has not had a seizure since returning home. Yippee!
Stinky has the next thankful. He and Periwinkle’s posts about their adventure at the Mill Mountain Zoo earned a Certificate of Excellence from the Cat Writers’ Association in the Short Story category. If you missed that two-part adventure, you can read Part 1 and Part 2 by clicking on the links.
I have a couple of thankfuls this week. My review posts (Yaheetech Cat Tree and PetLibro Water Fountain) each received CWA Certificates of Excellence as well.
My final thankful is for something extremely rare. I was both a First Commenter (one of four) and the First Right Guesser on the Tuesday Teaser at Two Spoiled Cats. I won this extra special badge.
Kitties Blue and I together have one final thankful. Back on July 21, we celebrated our Ninth Blogoversary. That is the same day Sawyer arrived home, so the blogoversary totally went unnoticed. Nonetheless, it happened, and we are all grateful we have stuck with this pursuit for that long, as we have made so many wonderful friends. We love and appreciate each one of you.
The crew and I are participating in the Thankful Thursday blog hop. If you’d like to join us, post on your blog for what you are thankful, then click on Brian’s badge to be transported to the hop.
