Forgetful Frigid Feline Friday

Brrr. Mom, you forgot to turn the heater on this morning. This senior lady cat is cold and needs some warmth.

Ahhh, thanks. That warm air feels good and is so relaxing.

Raven, it’s not freezing. The heater was set at 65 instead of the usual 68. But just for you I turned it up to 70 so you’d get the warms quickly.

Thankful Thursday – Giant Scratcher Tunnel

Almost 2 years ago Mom bought me the MushroomCat Cat Face Ultimate Scratcher Lounge Bed. She always glues two scratchers together to make a double-wide that’s big enough for me stretch out and get a good scratch.

She actually bought 6 of these scratchers and has been storing the extras in her closet. She thought it was time to let me live it up and have a giant scratcher tunnel.

Here it is, my 6-wide scratcher tunnel!

Here are two short video clips.

Sorry, this video is dark, but you’ll get the idea of how much fun it is to be able to walk through a scratcher tunnel.

Only the first two pieces are glued together so the others can go back in the closet. But I’ll get to enjoy my special scratcher tunnel for a while.

I have so much to be thankful for:

  • I’m thankful my Mom makes sure I stay happy and mentally engaged.
  • I’m thankful Mom doesn’t have a lot of clothing so there’s lots of room in her closet to store my extra scratchers.
  • I’m thankful my Dad lets me have a giant scratcher tunnel in the dining room.
  • I’m thankful that I’m feeling much better this week.
  • Mom & I are thankful for all of your purrs and well wishes last week when I wasn’t feeling so great. It means a lot to us to be part of caring community.

We’re thankful that Brian hosts his Thankful Thursday blog hop. It reminds us to take an extra moment to appreciate all the things we have to be thankful for.
