Today, Thankful Thursday and Thanksgiving Day.
I am thankful to have been adopted, to have a good home.
To have healthy meals, toys and treats, a warm place to sleep at night. Beside you.
Thanks for cuddles, chin scritches, brushies ~ how I love my brushies.
Windows.  To see birdies, have whiffies.  To watch big red fire trucks even though 
sometimes I don't like how screaming-noisy they are!  
To see a colorful parade, and people rushing by 
throughout each day doing whatever people do.  
Thankful for the city lights at night and the church bells that chime.
And for the good neighbors here. The ones I know who do not scare me,
even for the ones who visit (and I hide behind my chair) that I 
know in time I won't be scared of!  Thankful for family.
Very thankful for all of you, my bestest best pet friends, I love you all,
you make every day a good day.

I will be even more thankful when we all learn to be more kind to one another.
Everything works better that way.  I heard it used to be said that "cats and dogs 
didn't get along", but most of the time that is not true.  Much of the time
we do get along.  And people can too, if they just try a little bit harder.
That will be a day of real thanks!

And I will be even more thankful when all animals are treated with respect
and care, which is how it should be.  We are good beings, all of us, even those of
us who live on streets and hide in the woods.  We need your kindness, too.
We wanted to be wanted ~ so I will be thankful for the day when pets do not
have to be alone, when they can share their lives with human companions
feeling the love and thankfulness that I feel, this day and every day.
That will be a day of real thanks!

  17. Lovely post June, kindness to all is something we hope for here, too!

  18. How very thoughtful of you, June! You words are very poetic, but then so are Mom's words. Hope the two of you have a wonderful day being thankful for each other. You are both very special souls. I just managed to put up a post a little while ago, called Gobbledy-Gook. Now we're talking turkey! Love, Wendy and Dani. XOXO

  19. Happy Thanksgiving! We are thankful for our furrends and non-furry friends like you!These are great things to be thankful for. Humans do need to be kinder to one another and animals. Our town has razed most of the areas on the cliff where wildlife used to live. Then they complain about deer, skunks, raccoons, etc. in their yards. Those poor guys lost their homes and food supplies and have nowhere to go.

  20. So many great fings to be fankful fur. We also hope fur a day when everyone can show kindness and love to one another. Happy Fanksgiving ♥

  24. Wishing you and June a very Happy Thanksgiving. Will "talk" soon. Hugs.
