Turkey Countdown


Good Morning Friends!   Well, today is day one of Turkey Countdown for me and my Mom and Dad.  Yep – even though they are deserting me on Thursday to go up to the mountains and have turkey and the fixins’ at my Uncle Bruce and Aunt Joan’s cabin, I’m excited – why?  Well, because they will be bringing home some turkey for ME!   I’m not big on birds (I like to watch them but rarely eat anything in the bird family) BUT for some reason, Mom has discovered that I can nibble an inch or two of turkey.  SO – I’ll be patient and wait for the end of the week when they bring be some.

Meanwhile we have OTHER things going on like tomorrow’s Tuesday Teaser!   It’s a GUEST TEASER this week.  Let’s just see how well you do with this one………I had lots of Sammy Hug winners last week with my Mom’s painting – wondering how many there will be this week.

Here’s my other news…….you will remember my fabulous Cat Scouts Derby race car that my Mom and Dad built for me?  Well, we won an Honorable Mention in the race!   Mention was made of me not actually driving my car which of course refers to the fact that the photo of me IN the car was actually my Mom FORCING ME to stay in the car long enough for Dad to take a photo.  HAHAHA    In my defense, I am not a guy who is easily forced to do anything – I like doing things on my own terms – so for me to even have let Mom hold me inside the car for that photo – well – it was MAJOR!!   All the other drivers were in their cars as the rules said – AND the cars everyone did were incredibly creative and super – some of the entries were done on video with music too and they were fabulous.  Hey – Honorable Mention isn’t bad right???

Well I was IN the car anyway!!!  HAHA

Well I was IN the car anyway!!! HAHA

The BIGGER news though is that my troop the Worldwide Wildcats had more cars entered in the derby than any other troop in the Scouts and the Wildcats were BIG winners overall including a Troop Award !!


One of my friends wrote to me and said they were glad to see that I still love having tissue paper on the floor to play with – well I do – it’s nice and crinkly and noisy and I love hiding my toys under it.  Mom still gives me fresh tissue paper when she cleans the house every Friday.  HAHAHA

Lovin' my tissue!

Lovin’ my tissue!

So I’ll see you tomorrow for the BIG TEASE………….remember it gets posted at 6:00 Eastern Standard Time – later than my usual blog posts.  Hope to see you here in the morning and have a fab Monday!

Happy Turkey Countdown Day ONE

Big Bird


Oh I just bet I got every single cat’s attention with THAT blog title now didn’t I???  😀 😀

Well I’m not talking about Big Bird the TV star from Sesame Street – I’m talking about another big bird my Mom was talking about with my Dad today.  The big bird that is part of the Thanksgiving feast in many places including MINE. 

My parents say that one of their most favorite meals is turkey with dressing “and all the trimmings”……..well that’s a bit confusing because they also say they “trim” the Christmas tree so what’s up with that?  We don’t hang decorations on our Thanksgiving turkey!  Anyway, this year my parents are spending Thanksgiving away from home.   Now you might think that means I won’t be smelling that yummy turkey cooking in the oven right?  WRONG…….

When my parents get home after Thanksgiving with relatives, my Mom is going to make a turkey breast for US.  That’s how much my crazy parents like turkey!  Well, also they know that I enjoy turkey too so I’m sure they’re also making it for ME ME ME!

We try to really think about all the things we’re thankful for at Thanksgiving……a lot of people are so focused on the FOOD they forget about the THANKS and even the GIVING.   My parents help stock up the shelter food bank so that everyone can have a good Thanksgiving dinner – that helps with the “giving”  part.   We have our health, our home, and each other and that’s the “thanks” part.   

I’m also THANKFUL for all of you.  It’s great to have so many nice friends from all over the world. 

Yes it’s a little bit early to talk about Thanksgiving but it’s never too early to be THANKFUL………now is it????

Hands (paws) across the world to all my friends!
p.s.  Thinking about some great stocking stuffers for your doggy buddies?  Think about Mollie’s Cat Treats – check out the homemade treats AND bandanas!  Cool idea!

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:

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
