Thursday Thirteen #37

Thirteen Things I am grateful for

1. Friends. They are always there for us when we need them. They keep you happy and make you feel loved. Even those friends you didn't really know you had can be there for you in the hardest times.
2. The Lap Lady. Without her I don't know what I would do. She's my very special person and I need her to make me happy and purr and play with me.
3. Toys. Simple...I live to play. I play to live. Without playing I'm miserable.
4. Snuggling. A simple snuggle can put a purr in my chest and a smile on my face.
5. Latte is the best big/little brother. He's really tiny but huge in personality. We play together but more often snuggle. He's so warm and soft and fits perfectly in a head-tail position.
6. Chase for playing. We don't really snuggle much (his choice) but we run around all over the place and play HARD.
7. A good clean litterbox. Nothing like a freshly cleaned box.
8. Temptations. They're tasty but I prefer fishy flakes and I just ran out :(. The LL doesn't even know where to get them now.
9. The Tall Man for his shoulder rides and his body massages. He gives such great massages that I have to lick him while I'm purring.
10. My health and the health of those I love. Life is so fragile and its so important to cherish every moment. Especially during this sad time we need to show our love and support.
11. The fact that the Lap Lady can help us each have our own blog. She often thinks about combining us but we're all so different she doesn't know how she would do it.
12. All of the love and help given to animals in need. There are so many animals in need and those who work tirelessly to save them deserve so much admiration and respect. Even the small things count!
13. My forever home. I love my house and its so great to know that I'll always have food and a roof over my head and a warm place to sleep.

These are wonderful things to be thankful for. I think we should all remember the good things in our lives during this sad time. I'm with you on snuggles too!

Kaze, it is important to remember and think of the things we are grateful for. And those are some very good things. Friends are very important. And snuggling time, too.

That's a wonderful TT, Kaze. Those are all the best things to be thankful for. It's been a really sad week. Thanks for reminding us that we need to cherish each and every day.


PS - My mom is looking for fishie flakes, too. She found big (and she said "icky") hunks of fish at Petsmart, but she would rather get us flakes. If she finds any, she'll let your lady know.
