Thanksgiving is a time to be….

There are days when I contemplate throwing in the towel. Sometimes my passion is just not enough. And then I tell someone a story about what I do all day. On a day where I need to visit the shelter for a meeting, there is always a little one that is tucked away. He’s usually injured. She’s usually sad and confused not understanding what is happening or when she’s going home. Against the advice of my board or my business mentor citing that we will never be able to build our adoption center, I gather them up and place them into the hidden crates (that I keep in my trunk of my car) buckle them in and off we go. Safe and sound yet scared and wide eyed, another life has changed and will ultimately change my life and the life of the lucky adoptive family. This is why I do what I do. I am so grateful for everything in my life….So I thought it was time to share with all of you.
I am grateful for…
1. Waking up each day with no room for my legs to stretch.
2. Cat hair on my cloths…and towels…and everywhere cat hair lands.
3. My friends and family that no longer ask why…
4. The shelter who calls when they have no other options except the worst one…
5. All of the poop being solid and IN the box…
6. Surfcat supporters who always stand by me when we need them the most…
7. Head bonks that leave a mark on my face and my heart…
8. ;/.3l;4Zed When the kitties help me with my blog post…
9. A cat appears from her little cave to say hello for the first time and gives me a rub and a purr…
10. The purrfect human comes over to be adopted by a Surfcat and it doesn’t matter what that kitty looks like…
…and of course
My friends and family, good health and the will to keep going even when I think I can’t.

My hopes are that you will all take a moment to share what it is you are grateful for. So for now…
