Thankful Tabby Thursday

Hey it's me Tabitha helping Mom with the holiday cards and decorating.  Well OK, sometimes I am just being silly playing with the pompoms on the Christmas stocking!

On a serious note....we have so much to be thankful for this holiday season.  We are thankful for all our blogging friends, a warm safe place to live and that this year we are able to give to others.  Last year our family had a really difficult time financially but we  weathered thru it and now we can help others.

Please stop by and donate to Chrystal so they can build a bigger cat shelter for their homeless pet rescue organization and visit our "Flea Market" blog and buy a really spiffy vintage, gently used or new print or book (like the ones above) or jewelry, ornaments - all sales help feed and care for us and this month in the spirit of the season,  Mom is donating 20% of our intake to Chrystal.  

You can help out yet another way - We just found out that Chrystal is having a commentathon on her blog this weekend sponsored by another friend who will be donating 50 cents for each comment to Chrystal.  Please stop by Daily  Dose of Dogs from Friday thru Sunday!

We have gotten some really cool Christmas cards from our cat buddies - the Creek Cats and Four Crazy Cats.....

and Ginger Jasper (his card got all wet in the mailbox and Mom had to dry it out), Marge's Pets and Attie Cattie.  We will post more when we get them.

We are also thankful Woody is making himself right at home in the house and getting along with all the cats - more or less.  Doesn't he look relaxed in the sun puddle?

I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.  ~G.K. Chesterton

What a wonderful, thank-full post!

Things can always be worse, so it's good to practice gratitude on a daily basis and remember all of the blessings, not focus on what we lack.

Hi Cheri we received your christmas card in the mail yesterday, it made us smile thank you :-)

Tabitha you look adorable playing with the pom poms!!!

Sure glad to see Woody so happy. We will sure go over and leave comments at Chrystals tomorrow and Saturday. We are so thankful for our blogger friends and Mom went to the oncologist today and got a good report. That is so exciting for us. We thank you for being our friends. Hope you are staying warm. Did you get ice or snow?? We missed the ice, thank heavens.


Beautifully written and at this time of the year it is really special to appreciate all the things we are grateful for.


We are also trying to help promote Chrystal's comment-a-thon. WE are happy to see you are as well. We hope she gets LOTS and LOTS of comments to help in her wish to build onto her animal rescue.
