I may complain a lot about certain things (my human’s ineptitude, the annoying camera, occasionally being forced to wear outfits, etc.) but I do acknowledge that I have a lot to be thankful for. For one thing, I live in a big vintage home and the humans don’t have to struggle to pay the mortgage! They do have to work to pay it (if you can call being a writer and a musician work), but they are lucky to not have been affected much by the bad economy of the past few years. And if any of us kitties gets sick and runs up a big vet bill, my human might gripe about it, but she is able to pay it. We get quality cat food and toys — and companies even send us some to try out for free! That is a lot to be grateful for when so many others lack so much.
As you can see, all us kitties here have everything we need — and more — so when the Fairy Hobmother from Appliances Online UK visited the Katnip Lounge cats a few weeks ago, I wasn’t going to ask for anything, because I thought that would have been selfish and silly. But then I realized that I did not have to ask for anything for myself — I could ask for a donation to one of my favorite cat rescues or sanctuaries. I have been able to help out a number of them this year, but I haven’t yet had a chance to give anything to one of my favorites, Tabby’s Place. I decided to ask for a donation to them… and the Fairy Hobmother came through and gave them $50! So this week, I am especially grateful to the Fairy Hobmother for doing this.
If you haven’t yet been visited by the Fairy Hobmother and you’d like to make a wish for yourself or to help out a rescue group, just mention it in the comments below. Maybe you will receive a visit and your wish will be granted!
