Bright Monday greetings from Merlin, Domino and Odin. Life isn’t purrfect as we all know but despite the bumps in the road, there is much to be thankful for. We enjoyed the final warm weather of the year with garden strolls and Layla relaxed in the hammock. And we’re always happy you’re here! With Thanksgiving around the corner, our Mancat Monday thoughts turned to gratitude in an A to Z of ThanksGIVING or #CatThanks.

Cats Thanksgiving-gratitude

A: Autumn. Winter, spring and summer aren’t bad either.

B: Boxes or bags. Paper, cardboard, shiny, natural or corrugated, shoebox to shipping container, it all fits purrfectly.

C: Catnip, wild or dried, fresh or in toys a little ‘nip is catastic.

D: Domino, our former feral and best brofur.

E: Everything mousie, mole or vole scented.

F: Food, food, glorious food. Only the best will do for us.

G: Garden. We are blessed to have a safe and supervised wild, slice of nature.

H: Home. There’s no place like a warm, safe home especially after being in a shelter or on the street like Domino for 7 winters.

I: Intuition, a cat’s sixth sense. It’s one of our superpowers.

J: Jungles. Well, not a real one but the garden bushes and indoor plants excite our imagination.

K: Kitty Kaviar. Fishy Flakes. Need we say more?

L: Love, both human and feline is divine.

M: Merlin, our 20-year-old brofur and boss of all of us. Keep on keepin’ on. Every extra day is a blessing.

N: Neutering. Yes, us boys are happier and healthier for it. Ditto spaying for our gal pals.

O: Odin, our one-eyed wonder and ringleader of mischief, fun and delight 24/7

P: Purring and playing with or humans or each other, with or without toys.

Q: Quiet and peace. Peace and quiet with dollops of excitement.

R: Rolling in the grass, dirt or herb garden and no baths.

S: Snoozes in Sunpuddles

T: Treats and toys. Being a products tester means treats and toys galore.

U: Undercover snuggles.

V: VIP. How we are treated every day.

W: Water fountains. Fresh, fun, running water.

X: X amount of Cat Wisdom 101 readers. That means you!

Y: Yoga. Feline style stretches feel so good.

Z: Zzzzzzs and Super Zzzzzz
