I wanted to thankful my wonderful friend and co-writer Sharon Mohr for being so awesome.
Though we have never met in person and communicated by e-mail and phone. I wanted to say that I am so thankful to have met her.
I met her by following her cat Neptune (who has since gone over the Rainbow Bridge) and from there we chatted about cats and other various things.
I just wanted to say thank you Sharon.
Today I’m thankful for cats.
I’m thankful for the lessons in love they teach us.
They teach us
to be curious,
trust our instincts
and to give the “look” when needed,
and above all else, love unconditionally
It’s supposed to be wordless, but I wanted to share pictures I caught of my friend’s kitten Ozzy.. he’s only 4 months old but he is just a trip..
Today I’m thankful for my heart pet Buggy.
For those that don’t know what a “heart pet” is.. here’s a friend’s definition:
“A heart pet is a pet that is a very special pet that you know there will be no other like them. No matter how many pets you have they will never have that special connection to you.”
“It is a soulmate animal…you share a unique, deep special connection. You are a part of each other.”
So for those of us who have heart pets, let’s take a moment to be thankful for them, their presence in our lives and give them extra love if they are still with us, or remember them if they have passed over the Rainbow Bridge.
These are older photos of the boys, but I wanted to show them off.
Happy 4th of July to all my readers in the U.S.
Please keep your pets at home when going to watch the fireworks.
Stay safe & be good!
Today I’m thankful for Amazon & Goodwill.
Well have you seen the prices of those comfy soft throw blankets that cats love?
WalMart may have them on sale for $3 during the holidays but they generally range from $5-$10 normally. I can go to Goodwill and buy them for $1-$3 a piece.
And since my Goodwill trips are generally bi-monthly you can imagine how I stock up when I do go. And the blankets aren’t just for me.. I normally by 10-30 blankets which I test for softness, I let my cats pick out 1 or 2, wash them and get then nice and folded and sent them off to Pet Guards Angels in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio.
I’ve been involved with Pet Guards for going on 5 years now and I do the Wishes for Kitties (1 birthday wish = $1 donation) and at least two Kitty Care Packages a year.
So I’m thankful I can get blankets for so cheap at Goodwill, it means a great deal to a shelter who relies on donations to get by.
Amazon is a life saver when it comes to getting cat toys and trees. Pet stores are crazy expensive and I don’t mind getting a bulk amount of cat toys, giving my cats some and sending them to the shelter.
Amazon also allows you to make wish lists which is very helpful when trying to help out the shelter (or when I want to put things on “hold”).
So thanks to both of these places I can give my cats and those looking for a home a better life.
