Thankful Thursday – Cat Capers

cat in the window

Prince Tiger
Queen Cookie If you are fortunate to be “owned” by your cat(s) then you know what a special privilege that is.
You know how to walk through your home taking baby steps because you may be receiving a leg massage as you walk and you do not want to hurt your masseuse.

You are entertained by priceless antics by the simplest things your cat chooses to explore such as a box or a bag. You never know when one of these things might become your cat’s favorite toy and supply both of you with endless hours of entertainment.


You are honored from time to time with a prize of a captured mouse. “Look Mom, what I did!” I had one cat who insisted on leaving these valued prizes on my pillow.

You are taught which spots in your home are the softest and comfiest because your cat will hunt them out and make him or herself to home there. Be careful to look before you plop down after a hard days work, but fortunately for us, cats can move very quickly.

You will be treated to a tongue washing better than your mother could have ever given you. That sand paper tongue is sure to remove every remnant of dirt.


Know that you will not have to sleep alone. One of my cats sleeps at my foot and the other insists on using me as a human pillow. The soft purr has been found to be therapeutic and aid in joint and muscle health.
It is believed that cats purr as a form of meditation and that this may be part of the reason for the agility and fitness. Such wisdom in a simple creature…

I have found my cats to be pretty clever. I caught Tiger, my yellow cat, jumping on the bath mat to slide it over in front of their drinking water. He wanted to sit on a rug, not linoleum. If I had not seen him do it numerous times, I would have thought it was by accident. I finally decided to get the cats there own rug, because he kept moving ours. Now he leaves it sitting right in front of the water dish. If the dish is empty he lifts it with his mouth and throws it into the hallway. Is that so I will see it before I come in the bathroom and bring it in and fill it?  

Jeannie’s cat, S.T.  gives himself a bath and uses the toilet (for the same thing we use it for). Why can’t my cats do that? :-)

While researching for an article about pets awhile back,  I found data stating that owning a pet increases one’s chance of rehabilitation after a hospital stay by 500%. That’s pretty impressive. Our pets lower our blood pressure and make our lives more enjoyable. So why are there so many homeless pets?

Animals are wonderful creatures and men's best friends, aren't they! My whole family is allergic to cats, so we have none..

Icy, you have a rabbit and I am sure your pet is very well loved. Taking care of animals is good for us.

I'm sorry you are all allergic. I am too but it's only mildly. I wake in the morning and have to blow my nose for about 20 minutes but am fine the rest of the day.

Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day!

Nice mosaics, it's fun to create the perfect one isn't it?

Cats are wonderful friends to many people I know! They are a little mischievous and sneaky though.

S.S. it is fun to play with our photos. I could spend hours (if I had them) :-)!

Cats do some things that are pretty mischievous, but I think it's innocent. :-)

Thanks for the visits and God bless!

That is so funny about Tiger and the rug, cats are really smart and creative at times. If I have been busy and forget to fill my cats dish she will sit beside it, look at the dish, look at me, back at the dish...until it has fresh kibble.

My kitty is a rescue and there are so many more out there. Rescued kitties make the best pets.

Judy, I agree. Rescue animals have a deep appreciation for their owners and such a strong desire to please. I'm so glad you rescued him/her!

Take care & God bless.
