Thankful Thinking

I Can See That Fat Squirrel Hanging From The Squirrel-Proof Birdfeeder! HA!

I just wanna share what I'm thankful for....ahead of the rush!

I know there will be a lot of folks who will be telling the world what they are thankful for over the next couple of days but I wanted to be ahead of the game!   I know what a lucky guy I am in so many ways, but here are just a few of the things that I’m MOST thankful for:

Napping with Mom on the recliner

My Mom's Warm Leg and Lap for Naps!


Sam and His Dad Playing on the Rug

We call this the Grandma Chair - Sam thinks it's a great nap spot.

Enjoying the yard and the nice fresh air!

My Wonderful Yard

Gosh, I could go on and on and on.  There are so many things I’m thankful for and these are just the tip of the iceberg……but one thing I can’t post a picture of that I’m VERY thankful for is:


I really appreciate each and every one of my new friends here in cyberspace – thanks for making it so fun to get up early and do my blog every morning and for all your comments that make me giggle and feel good.  If we can make each other smile – or be happy – or enjoy ourselves then isn’t THAT really something to be thankful for?

So – Happy Early Thanksgiving to everyone who celebrates it – and even if you don’t – THANKS FOR BEING MY FRIEND.

Kitty Hugs, Sammy – One Thankful Cat

Sammy Gets Brave….Sort Of


As you folks know who are following my blog (and I’m sure there are THOUSANDS of you……LOL) we have a neighborhood cat who almost always stops by our house once or twice a day.  She obviously lives somewhere close and she obviously is allowed to roam wherever she wishes, but she knows I live in this house on the hill and she likes to stop and say hi.  Well, I’m not trusting of other cats much – there were some who have come and gone who weren’t very nice to me so I kinda prefer my solitary existence just hanging out with Mom and Dad.  Dad calls the neighborhood “visitor” Stevie….why?  I dunno – he just does.  If I see Stevie in the window by the door looking inside the house I’ll go find Mom and tell her Stevie’s here.  Mom gives her a few of my treats (I’m happy to share!) and Stevie might hang out on the porch for a bit in one of the rockers then off she goes to visit someone else. 

Yesterday I did a very brave thing…..First of all, I have to say that if I’m outside and Stevie comes flying up the yard out of nowhere, I just lie down and be very still – she will sometimes come up and sniff me and I sniff her but we don’t play and as soon as I feel safe enough, I’ll run up to the door and ask to be let inside.  BUT yesterday, I saw Stevie on the porch, told Mom, Mom went outside and guess what – I WENT OUT TOO!  Yep – I actually went out there on purpose knowing Stevie was there – we touched noses, I went to lie down on one of the steps up to the porch and Stevie laid down on one of the rugs by the rocker and we stayed out there – together – for about ten minutes.  Now this may seem like a SMALL thing to you……but for me, it was huge.  Being a very shy guy I don’t seek out cat or people company.  Yesterday I did.  Mommy said she was proud of me. 

I was proud of me too!
