Thank You Thursday

I'll keep this short and sweet because, well, I've had a rough day for the past couple days. It's nothing big, just general overwhelming feelings and overall frustration. I've had some good things happen and I'll tell you about those soon enough, but, what's gotten me through and kept me from ripping out my hairs (including the gray ones) has been the cats. I'm one of those people who like having a lap pet. Get your minds out of the gutter. Not like that. There's something snuggle-y about having a big ole kitty climb into your lap so you can pet them and get rid of frustration. Works better than liquor or food, for me anyway.

So I'm thankful for the boys. The two at home and the two watching from the catnip euphoria in the sky.

My parents had a cat. She was a strange moggy...liked salt and vinegar flavoured crisps (chips) and chocolate biscuits. She would only sit on someone's lap if she wanted.

Best memory of her is when my son was tiny. He pulled her tail. Sox whipped around, claws out and teeth bared. Saw the baby and just turned around again and walked off tail in the air. Had it been one of us, we'd have been clawed.

Hee hee. I love the boys. Vader deals with the dogs ( he thinks he is one ) and loves the youngling. Follows the younling around like a dog and bats at him without claws. It's hilarious. He'll eat chips and ice cream. He's a pistol, too. :)
