Happy Thanksgiving :)


Moosey: Hi everyone!  Sammy and I are searching for turkeys, but we're not having much luck. Have any of YOU seen any turkeys around here?

Sammy: Yeah, it feels like we've been out here for... um, Moosey ... turn around ... verrrrry slowly...

Now that the boys have found their elusive turkey (and with it being the Thanksgiving holiday weekend in the U.S.), we pause to give thanks.

We are grateful for everybody who adopts shelter animals and/or takes in stray pets. And thankful for those who work with, or volunteer with, shelter animals; serve as fosters; care for feral cats and/or participate in trap-neuter-return programs; and those who raise awareness about animals in need.

We also give big thanks for our families and friends (animal and human alike), including the ones we've made through this blog. Thank you all for sharing in our lives, and for allowing us to share in yours!  Your ongoing friendship is a continual source of strength, encouragement and joy. :)

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Love and head bonks,

(Pilgrim) Sammy, (Native American) Moosey, Mom Tracey and Dad Kevin

  35. What an adorable picture! Love this post. You have a very good list of things to be thankful for. Give yourselves a pat on the back; you fit into many of those categories yourself. Hope you had a good Thanksgiving, Kevin and Tracey!

  36. Cute picture! Thank you for all the wonderful work you do at the shelter.
    Every week the Sunday morning volunteers notice so many cats who have come to enjoy the company of people, and we say, what happened? Why is this cat so much friendlier than he or she used to be?
    Then one of us says, "Kevin and Tracey must have been working with that cat."
