I Am A Lucky One! - Thankful Thursday. #RememberMeThursday



Hi Pals:

Today is #RememberMeThursday, a day to remember all the shelter cats that were not as lucky as I was.  Many have died while waiting for their forever home.   What a sad thing to think about.  I am so very thankful that I was one of the lucky ones.   No wonder I  insisted that D adopt me when M and D came to the shelter looking for a cat.  (See my adoption story) in the Tab at the top of the page).    I had been in the shelter for 4 months, and I think M and D saved my life.  It makes us sad that many others didn't make it.  So when thinking about getting a pet (cat, dog, or whatever), check with your local shelter first.   They have so many wonderful, loving, adoptable pets just waiting for a good home.

Our good friend The Stunning Keisha said it so well in her blog yesterday, please read it if you have not already done so.

On this Thankful Thursday, I am so thankful for my loving home with two staff humans that dote on my every need and whim.   In return, I give them lots of love - head bumps, purrs, lap time when they want it, and I'm a very happy kitty to be here.

I'm joining PepiSmartDog's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.  I'm also thankful to Michele for leading the blog hop every week.   I hope my try at linking up goes better this week.  I have absolutely no idea what went wrong last week that I could only connect to part of the link.

Join us in the blog hop and remind pals people to shop at Animal Shelters first when looking for that special pet.

Mario, you hit the jackpot that day your humans came into the shelter!

And I'm lucky I started on Twitter where I met you! We are so lucky to have loving homes while so many die in the street and in shelters without love. Thanks for the shout-out!

We are lucky too - being feral most of us would not have been adopted if we had been brought to a shelter.

We're so grateful we were adopted from the shelter, and for our wonderful home. We're also participating today to spread the word.

Great post Mario, I am so glad you got a loving forever home. I wish all cats were so lucky. My Snowball and KaTwo were in the shelter for 2 years before I adopted them.

We're purring for all those animals in shelters waiting for their forever homes and all those who sadly never made it out. We're glad you were one of the lucky ones, Mario.
