Thanksgiving thoughts

Well, kats and kittens, it's Thanksgiving Day here in Illinois and we thought we would reflect on what we are grateful for.
Taz: Good food, lots of love from a mommy who understands me enough to know that just because I don't cuddle with my brothers, doesn't mean I don't love  them...It just means I'm the Princess and I don't mix with the riff-raff!
Runt: The food is great, and mommy gives good snuggles in the morning as she gets my food together. And I love to sit on mommy's lap when she's at the computer (if Charles doesn't beat me to it!) and just enjoy the quiet of the two of us.
Charles: Hey, did someone say food?  Mommy calls me her big boy and I am that...I love sleeping with mommy, even though she doesn't sleep as long as I want her to, but she doesn't mind if I curl back up after breakfast. Food, did someone mention food?
Mommy: While I am thankful for the three of you, I am most grateful this year that my nephew, Erik, has completed his tour in Iraq, where he was an EOD specialist (Explosive Ordinance Detonation) and that his next assignment will be Oahu, Hawaii. Evidently, the unexploded ordinance from WWII is becoming unstable, so they are requesting EOD to begin safely disarming them.
So, from all of us at 3 Kats and a Kwilter want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! Now, we need to get back to our nap!

Santa Paws Drive---Please help out!

Today's blog entry is from Taz, aka Princess. As a former shelter inhabitant, she knows the sorrow of finding yourself in a cage at a shelter. Taz found her new forever home on Christmas Eve 3 years ago and while it took some time for her to get accustomed to her new mommy, she is very happy now in her forever home.
Santa Paws Drive
While we like to find forever homes for all shelter animals, we understand that it won't happen this year, so we are supporting the Santa Paws Drive, which will be helping 6 shelters - 3 in the United States, 1 in Canada, 1 in Great Britain and 1 in Tenerife, which is off the coast of Africa, to give the animals a little Christmas cheer and help the shelters out with some added cash to make things a little smoother. So, consider making a donation, whether as a cash donation or a donation of "goodies".
So, thanks for reading and keep checking back. We are pestering mommy to post more often.

Taz, Runt and Charles
