Thankful Thursday, A Day Late

I'm thankful for all of my fur babies! That's kind of a 'duh' statement. But yesterday was a good kitty day! For the most part.

I wrote recently about how NF (Nephew's Fiance) has stolen Cashmere! And I've written about how she follows Greg around when he's home. She loves everyone, it seems, but me.

Before I went into rehab she had started sleeping on my chest at night. But since my return, and it's been a long while! she hasn't been interested in me much at all. She'll take pets as she walks past me, but she's not coming up and asking for any. Not when she has her favorite people!

Glitter has always preferred getting her pets with all four feet on the ground, thank you very much. Which is hard for me with my leg issues. I convinced her to sit next to me when I'm sitting on the edge of the bed, letting her know she can get pets that way and it's worked pretty well.

Today! Glitter stayed beside me long enough to fall asleep and have a nap with her paws on my leg! Yay! I was so happy! That was enough to make my day!

But that wasn't all!

Yesterday and the day before Cashmere discovered one of Leo's favorite sleeping places. On my pillows when I'm up. She snuggled in and had a good nap!

Very comfy, I can see why Leo likes it.. zzzzzzz

Eventually I had to put my legs up, so unfortunately she had to get evicted. Imagine my surprise when she leaped up out of the blue and started walking across my chest! I started petting her and she paused! Sort of like "Hmm, ok, that feels nice." The more I pet, the more relaxed she got and she laid down purring her little head off!

Eventually she started to flick her tail at me so I stopped the petting, but she stayed and took a nice long nap on me. I was beyond happy!

I had a thankful Thursday cuddling two of my kitties who don't generally want to cuddle with me!

The only purrson who did not have a thankful Thursday was Leo.. He wanted to get on the bed when Glitter was sleeping next to me, blocking his way up. Then he wanted to nap on 'his' pillows when Cashmere was there. And finally, he was ready for his snuggle session when, you guessed it, Cashmere was sleeping on my chest!

Don't feel too bad for him, he did get his snuggles, just a little later than usual. I can always count on cuddles from my boy, my sweetie, my heart cat! I'm so thankful for him too!


Leo was a Winnie's Wish kitty. As were his sister of course. We're thankful that Chrystal let us adopt all of them!

There are lots of other Winnie's Wish kitties who need homes! Right now Chrystal is planning, and hoping to add another room on the cathouse. You can read about her wish HERE.

It would be great if a lot of the kitties could be adopted out before construction starts, wouldn't it? Lets spread the word about the adoptable kitties of Winnie's Wish and ask our friends to do the same, please!

If you want to help with the new room, please see the gofundme page for it, HERE

It sounds as though you had a good day Andrea with snuggles with the bonus of Glitter having a nap with her paws on your leg and getting snuggles.

Cashmere does look very comfy-and cute.

I remember the feeling I got when Sweetie let me pet her for the first time...a feral cat who I had TNR'd after she had kittens, she was always a minimum of 10 feet away. Then it was 5 feet, then 3 feet. Now, she runs up to me, and dances and meows and my heart swells with joy every time. Cats are pretty cool, aren't they!

it is always so heartwarming when they decide to spend time with you after not wanting to.

The Cat From Hell said...

its always nice to gets cuddles from the kitties! mommy was pretty disappointed that Kozmo would not has much to does with her when we was home over Christmas, But the last day we was there, he started cuddling with hers and made her whole visit!

Cathy Keisha said...

That would be the day I’d nap on a human!

The Indulged Furries said...

Aww, so glad to hear that you had snuggles and cuddle time with all the kitties. Raven is not much of a lap cat so I always appreciate it when she sits on my lap for some petting.

Sweet Purrfections said...

Such a lot to be thankful for.

I love it when I get unexpected visitors! Occasionally Sweet Pea or The Baby will hop on the sofa for a snuggle with me.
