Yup, you guessed it. This is the weekend of the Canadian Thanksgivin'.
So Happy Thanksgivin', everybody!
And for what am I, Seville the Cat, thankful, you ask?
Well for starters, I'm thankful that I'm a Canadian kitty. I mean, if I weren't Canadian, I wouldn't be spendin' this weekend celebratin' Thanksgivin'.
And speakin' of mouses and the like, another thing for which I, Seville the Cat, am thankful, is the word, MOUSES. It's such a versatile word, you see. It can mean so very many things. And had it not been for my late, great brother Nissy, the world wouldn't even have such a word. So I AM EXTREMELY THANKFUL for Nissy havin' invented it.
See? See what I just did there? That time, I used MOUSES! in a celebratory way, whereas earlier, I used it like one follows the punchline of a joke.
Ba-dum bum. Tssh.
Yeah, MOUSES is a SUPER versatile word, for sure.
Now let's see, what else is there that...
Oh! OH! OH! I just thought of another thing.
I, Seville the Cat, am extremely thankful for my peeps.
Now you might be thinkin' I'm thankful for 'em on account of their feedin' me, and housin' me, and givin' me treats, but actually....
Okay, so I am pretty thankful for that. BUT I'M ALSO thankful for all the fodder they - particularly Peep #1 - provide for my blog. My gosh, if it weren't for Peep #1's constant crazy behaviour, I'd have practically NOTHIN' to write about at all.
Why if it weren't for her, I'd be totally dependent upon the craziness of politicians and celebrities and the like. Not to mention all those otherwise Perfectly Pedestrian Peeps who keep gettin' caught on camera while Publicly Peein', Perhaps even Poopin', without... You know... Scoopin'.
And I assure you, as a cat, I HAVE NEVER DONE THAT.
Okay, so there was that one time last summer...
But in my defence, I HAD NO IDEA I could be seen from the road. And I certainly had no idea that what those peeps were holdin' in their paws, were cameras.
Darned moused-up Pawarazzi.
But back to the providin' of fodder for my blog. The thing is, all those late-night TV hosts and comedians have pretty much got the political-celebrity-peein'-in-public market all tied up, so...
So thanks-be-to-goodness for my peeps' incessant crazy behaviour and stuff.
And that brings us to nip. That's right, I, Seville the Cat, am very thankful for my stash of the nip.
Of course I am havin' to grow the stuff myself, on account of Peep #1 bein' better at killin' catnip than growin' it. But luckily for me, it turns out I'm a dab paw at growin' catnip, so yeah, I'm pretty darn thankful for that.
I'm also thankful for all of my pals from all over the world.
My gosh, without pals, what would a kitty like me do?
Huh, without pals, I'd have to spend all my time with those fur-sibs of mine, and let me tell you somethin', that would not be a good thing at all.
It's not that I don't love 'em, 'cause actually, I do.
It's just that...
Well it's just that SOMETIMES - more often than not - they drive me a little crazy and stuff.
Of course, they are good for takin' the blame when I get into mischief and things. So I guess I'm pretty thankful for that.
I'm also thankful for the food in my dishes, and the roof over my head, 'cause you know, not all cats have those things. And I'm thankful that sometimes I can even help out a kitty or two who don't have safe places to sleep or enough kibble to eat. Yeah, I'M REALLY THANKFUL for that.
'Cause you know what they say...
They say, givin' a helpin' paw to those in need, is a very, very good thing, indeed.
And I'm also thankful for...
Actually, I think I've pretty much got it covered, for now. But I'll be EXTRA THANKFUL tonight, when the peep gives me extra treats on account of it bein' Thanksgivin' and all, and..
What's that, Peepers? You didn't hear 'bout how you're REQUIRED BY LAW to give all us cats extra treats on Thanksgivin' and stuff?
WELL WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN, WOMAN? I mean, EVERYONE knows that. Everyone. EVERYONE! Everyone from Canadian coast to coast to coast.
Please excuse me, my friends, for I must now go and explain to the peep 'bout the necessity of extra Thanksgiving Day treats.
Oh, and uh...
HAPPY THANKSGIVIN', MY FRIENDS.
