Happy Thanksgiving!!

Once again I'm away from the kitties over the Thanksgiving holiday as I visit my family in New Hampshire. Being away from the feline family is never easy, I miss them terribly, although it's nice seeing the human family.

Hershey is spending his Holiday at a temporary foster home.

Leaving him was difficult even though I know he would be well taken care of. The amount of sadness I felt at leaving him is a bit concerning as it make me wonder how I will do when it comes to saying goodbye for good when he gets placed in his permanent home.

To ease my separation anxiety, the foster-mom has been emailing me pictures of Hershey. By the look of these pictures he doesn't seem to be suffering one bit!

This bed is heated and in front of the window!

With Hershey staying in such deluxe accommodations, I'm thinking maybe next time I'll take all nine cats over!!

While I've been away, I've been enjoying seeing the kitties on the various kitty cams I have set up around the place.

I installed a new camera inside Oliver's heated house. This way when I don't see Oliver on his back porch I can rest easy knowing he's comfy, warm and dry in his heated home. Here are some of the heartwarming views I have seen on this new camera:

not sure which one of Oliver's family this one is

It's hard to see, but two black cats are snuggling 
together on the heating pad staying toasty warm!

Seeing Oliver so snug brings tears of delight to my eyes

Of course it's great to watch the inside kitties too!

One of the girls has her crazies on in the window for all to see!

Once again on this Thanksgiving, I am immensely thankful for Laura, my cats, their health and happiness, for my family and for all you, my faithful readers. So many blessings and so much to be thankful for.


  1. The kitties all look happy but I know they miss you also. Enjoy your Thanksgiving with your family! Big Hugs, Linda

  2. Your kitties all appear to be enjoying their Thanksgiving holiday. It isn't the same without their humans around, though :)

  3. Hershey looks so cozy in that heated bed. And, having fun with the toys. What a wonderful foster mom!

    Love the kitty-cams.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

  4. Hershey has such a cute face! Love the web cam pics!
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  5. Happy American Thanksgiving! You all have lots to be thankful for ;)

  6. Boy, Hershey landed in the lap of luxury! It's so wonderful that you installed those cat cams at home. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.
    I was just up in Lebanon for a day last Monday - winter is definitely coming there faster than in Boston.

  7. hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Hershey's face looks like he misses you but he seems to be having fun in spite of missing you!

  8. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving..

    I love that you checked in on all of the kitties and your foster parents have special place in my heart :)

  9. Purraying you all had a purrfect Thanksgiving
    Health and a bit of wealth to all!

  10. You and your wife are the dearest couple I know. I love your compassion for living things and your love for cats. Oliver's story and the love he is also lavished with just bring tears to my eyes.

    Thank you both for all that you do for your cats and for ferals.

    Katie Isabella's mom
