Annabelle with her sweet babies!
Annabelle spent time at our friends
home while pregnant and then for awhile 
until the kittens were old enough to be adopted!
Annabelle was also available for adoption, but
it took awhile longer, but NOW she has been 
adopted and is in her forever home! Yippee!   

We are all so thankful for the 
as they arrange for Foster Homes for homeless animals
that are waiting for their furrever homes.
Plus we are so thankful for our dear friends who have
fostered many cats.

He made it much easier than me doing it by myself!
I am so thankful for all that he does for me and for us!
Thanks Brian for Thankful Thursday!

This image might seem a bit disrespectful of
folks who work in the medical field....well it
isn't as I have experienced in the last few months
a lot of caring nurses and doctors. I will not go into
the details, but the past few months have been a
challenge and I am so thankful that we live 
where there is excellent care. I am doing much
better now and am almost back to my ol' sassy self!
Cheers and hurrah for everyone who helped me!
And thanks Brian for Thankful Thursday!
