Here in Canada, tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day. That's right, we Canadian kitties celebrate Thanksgiving in October rather than November. Don't know why. Just do. Actually, at my house, we're celebrating today rather than tomorrow. Don't know why we're doing that, either. Just are.
I understand there will be some extra Fancy Feast in store of us cats and for that, we can all be truly thankful 'cause the peeps are havin' Wild Rice & Mushroom Soup. They're veggies, you know. That's why they're not eating the turkey or anything. Personally, I'd rather have the Fancy Feast. And for dessert, they're having Pumpkin Pie. I watched the peep making those pies yesterday and I couldn't believe my eyes. What a waste of good cream! Yeah... I saw her pour a whole cup and a half of whipping cream into the fillings. Do you have any idea how many saucers-of-cream-for-the-cat that is? It's a lot, I am sure. Sure hope there's a little cream that has not been all pumpkinafied left for us kitties. Got my paws crossed on that one. We all do, I think.
Anywho... Thanksgiving is a time for thinking about all for which we are thankful. As I said, I'm thankful for Fancy Feast but there's lots of other stuff, too.
I'm thankful for my peeps. They're pretty good peeps, you know... even if they are veggies. And I'm thankful that I'm formerly - and not presently - feral. Gosh, it's good to have a home. And I'm thankful for all my fur-family. They can be a bit much, at times, but really and truly... I love 'em all.
I'm also thankful for having my very own blog and for all the friends I've made here on the blogosphere. They're a great bunch, those friends of mine. A lot of them are cats, like me, but many are peeps and then there are some dogs and bunnies and turtles and various other species, too. Some of them have their own blogs and I'm thankful I get to read them. Others don't have their own blogs but I sure am thankful that they read mine.
I'm thankful for my BFF, Herman. He has a blog, It's a Wonderpurr Life, but I actually met him on twitter. In fact, I'm thankful for all my twitter friends. What a great bunch, they are. If you don't follow me on twitter already, you can... you know. Just look for @nerissathecat. That's me! Bet you had already figured that part out, huh?
Oh, and I'm thankful for all my Facebook friends, too. Another great bunch of cats, peeps and whatnot. Love 'em all! And I'm thankful that peep#1 got me my very own Facebook fan page. What fun that has been. It's called Nerissa's Life, just like my blog, in case you didn't already know.
And speaking of the old Facebook... I think I broke it. Yeah, sorry 'bout that. You see, a week ago, I did that article on my good friend Stan. You know Stan, right? He's the Tuxedo Party of Canada's representative running in the municipal elections in the city of HRM. He's running for mayor and he really is the very best of the candidates. Well anyway, that post was my most popular one ever! Peeps and cats from all over the world read it. In fact, I had over five hundred hits on my blog that very first day! And boy-oh-boy am I ever thankful for that! But here's the thing, ever since that post, my blog doesn't show how many likes I have on Facebook. Nope. Not a single one. At least they don't show up for me. So that's why I'm thinking I broke the Facebook. Oh well... these things happen, I suppose. Oh, and I'm also very thankful I'm not the one who will have to fix it. All of you should be thankful for that, too, 'cause if I was the one who had to do the fixing... the fixing would never get done. I can pretty much guarantee that. And don't be counting on my peep, either, 'cause as you all know... the woman is a technologically impaired duffer. It's not just me who says that. Everybody does.
And I've got something else super-duper special for which to be thankful. This post... this one you're reading right now... is number one hundred for me. That's right! I've published one hundred posts on Nerissa's Life. Isn't that neat? It's kind of funny 'cause it feels like I've been blogging forever and yet, at the very same time, it feels like I just started yesterday. Weird, huh? I guess blogging has just become a part of me now. And I'm thankful for that, too.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE! purrs
