Welcome to Gratitude Monday. Each Monday stop by & comment on what you are grateful for today. It does not have to be food or exercise related. It can be ANYTHING!
For those that follow me on Instagram & Facebook, you know that a kitty adopted us last week. I kept hearing a kitty crying out on our back patio for a couple of days after the gym. I went out calling to it but it did not come out. The third day the kitty finally made an appearance! It was so sweet & loving & just kept trying to rub up against me AND get in the house! Hubby is very allergic so we could not take it in BUT I started to feed it & give it water while I looked for the owner OR a new owner.
The kitty remained close to us staying under that tree all day & night. See pic above. We put a box out with a blanket to sleep in but it kept sleeping under the tree. It never strayed far & anytime I went out on the patio it came flying at me for loving!!!
One of our neighbor’s had a couple of dogs & cats so I asked her if she knew anyone that lost or might want a kitten. I told her the whole story. Being an animal lover, she came right over, looked at the kitten, scooped it up as it purred in her arms – told me it was a he – and said she would take him in while we looked for an owner. 🙂 Later that day she told me the kitten had already tried to make friends with her dogs & cats, pooped in the litter box (her cats are inside cats) & made itself at home. Obviously a kitten that had been somewhere & maybe abandoned. Check out the pics below of kitty – NOW SIMBA – in both neighbor’s home AND SIMBA’S NEW HOME WITH HER DAUGHTER-IN-LAW THAT HAD JUST LOST HER CAT! WHAT A LOVER!!!!! Whoever lost or abandoned this kitten – their loss!!!! No signs up around our neighborhood for a lost kitten so…..
I am so happy – very grateful for this neighbor that agreed to help this kitten! Her daughter-in-law is one lucky cat owner! My neighbor said Simba is a lover. I could tell that by how he stayed so close to me when I went out on our patio to feed him! HAPPY ENDING!!!!
Also thankful for cooler weather – I think I sweat out 5 pounds of sweat a day during the hot weather – it was unbearable!!!! It is going to get warm again but hopefully not as warm as it has been the past couple weeks!
ALWAYS thankful for cookies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂 One is a Coco Loco which is oatmeal, chocolate chips, pecans & coconuts!!! I could have done without the chocolate chips. They took over the taste of the other goodies in it which I prefer over chocolate – yup, I like chocolate but not a lover. The second one is an oatmeal raisin. Both are from PDM Bakery. They have amazing cookies & pastries!!! Their macaroons are to die for too!
I know I have been MIA. With it being too hot to do anything in the computer room with no AC & work, I just have not been able to catch up with you all. SORRY!!! I hope you had a wonderful week! What have you been up to & what are you thankful for today?
