Thankful Thursday

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!


Sawyer is still catching up on the sleep he missed while away.


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.

Mom Janet

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

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.

We sure are happy to celebrate all your really great thankfuls this week. You are great blog friends and our only wish is we were closer so we could stop in and say hello. Rumpy would probably make the trip in his harness and you could see in purrson how nice he can be and we are sure he would nudge too. Congrats on your Blogoversary and we are so glad you are our pals! Sawyer… Oh Sawyer you are home and not more needs to be said. Love you kitties blue and Mom and Dad too!

Such wonderful thankfuls!! We were hoping Kizmet would do well, we makde sure we voted (until Mom had no access to the internet). We are so excited about the Cat Writer Awards! We have loved your writing for the last 9 years! We are thankful that you have been blogging so long (It is Mom’s 11th anniversary today, but that was with 2 different cats and 4 different blogs). We are Thankful too that you are a double winner on the teaser! That IS really rare! We hope that you all have a marvellously happy week!

Way to go Kismet. I’m glad she’ll be in the calendar.

Sawyer being home is such a blessing. No seizures is even better.

I love the adventures of Periwinkle and Sawyer. Look forward to them each week.

It’s been a “banner week” for you! I love thinking about our thankfuls every week for Brian’s Hop. There is almost ALWAYS something to be thankful for if we just look for them. Congratulations on the CWA awards – well deserved – and of course being a double winner on Teaser this week. Most of all we continue to be SO happy that Sawyer is safely home again………life can be EVER so good!

Hugs, Teddy and Mom Pam
