Happy Thanksgiving 2015

Graphic created for us 8 years ago by Robyn Harton (@GeorgeTheDuck's human).

Happy Thanksgiving Pals,

I have much to be thankful for, as most of us do:  a nice warm house, loving humans to take care of me, plenty of noms to eat  (unless you are on a diet), good health, and lots of toys just to name a few things.   We are also thankful for all our friends, both local and those of you on social media.  We are blessed.  Little did we know 8 years ago when we started on Twitter that we would meet so many wonderful humans from all over the world.

M and D are invited to Sisfur and SIL's house for dinner, so I guess I'll be alone.   M says I can't go with to see the other kitties because there will be too many people there.    Sigh!!!   But M said maybe I can have a special treat when they get home and feed me my supper.   (dreaming of a piece of turkey - leg would be good).   I will guard the house and take a nap.

Whatever you or your humans do for the day, have a great Thanksgiving and remember what the day is all about.

The Meet And Greet - Thankful Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Pals,

On Caturday I got stuffed into the carrier again, only the destination this time was my human sisfur's house 45 minutes away - not the vet, which I am very thankful for.

If you remember on September 17, 2015, I did a blog on "The Other Half Of Our Family" and introduced Kim and Ken's new kitties to you (Tucker and Tanner).   

Tucker in MY PTU and Tanner under the table watching every move I made.

Well sisfur and M put their heads together and decided it was time for me to meet the new kitties cuz the deal is I'm supposed to live there if something happens to M and D.    I used to go to their house whenever my peeps were on vacation and their other two kitties and I got along (Amos and Keiko).   

I hate it when the humans get cock-a-mamie ideas such as this that involves us.  

The above picture shows my PTU, which sisfur opened up right away and I  took off exploring. Meanwhile I had two kitties watching me.   They never said a word while I roamed around upstairs.

Hey, I think I remember this place.  It's fun here,  but where are Amos and Keiko?

However, the minute I took off on a run for the basement to see if the litter boxes were still there, I had the patter of 8 paws running after me and 4 feet following the paws.   Sigh, a guy can't get away with anything.

The Humans had lunch and we kitties had a little lunch too.  Then, finally, M and D decided 3 hours was enough for the first visit.   Sometime soon I guess I have to go down there to stay overnight to see how that goes.  Then they will put me in my own room and let us kitties play pawsies under the door for a few hours.  

Tucker and Tannner haven't become territorial yet, so the humans feel it's best to take me there several times so that we all get used to each other.  M is really hoping that I will be a good boy and get along with Tucker and Tanner.

M and D were surprised that it went as well as it did. D thought they would have to make a quick exit 20 minutes after getting there, but I showed them. There was a little hissing by Tanner while we were downstairs, but he didn't attempt to advance towards me.   I can't remember if I hissed in return or not.   So stay tuned pals and keep those paws crossed that we can all get along.

We are joining @PepiSmartDog's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.   Hop on and join us!

Happy Veterans Day 2015

Thank you to all our veterans
past and those still serving. We
appreciate you  keeping us safe
and giving your service to our

Hi pals,

The peeps and I want to wish everyone a Happy Veterans Day.  Let's all remember what this day is all about and honor those individuals.   Many have died through the years protecting our freedom.  Many are still serving.  We appreciate all of you. 

D is a veteran after spending three years in the Army a hundred years ago.   He was stationed in Korea for 13 months, long before I was adopted.

My human sisfur's husband (SIL) served in the Wisconsin National
Guard for a few years.   And we thank him for his tour of service. While he did not see active duty, he was ready and willing, and we love him for it.

Do you have a veteran in your family or know one?   Surprise them and tell them "Thank You" today.   They will be surprised and love you for it.
