Thankful Thursday

Bibi-Chan: First of all, we would all like to thank you for so many kind words of support yesterday. They really warmed our hearts, especially #1's. She says she just can't figure out why people spend so many energy trying to hurt others, but it sometimes really makes one want to become a recluse...

Anyway, we are THANKFUL for all our friends for your support in so many things. Remember our Blogaversary commenthaton? The comments kept trickling in and the final tally was actually 56. With Ms. A and Ms. H doubling the stakes, we were able to go on a substantial shopping expedition for the Mayhew Animal Home. This is what we got them from their wish list:

This book cost £54.60 and being big ticket, we thought that there was less chance of people buying it so we went for it!

We also go them a couple of these of these:

Catit Jungle Stripes Design Patterned Scratching Board with Catnip, Lounge

And also:

And they were looking for some bath mats, so we added this:

Sorry about the quality of the pictures, but we (sssshhhh...) lifted them off amazon's website.

Thanks again for your support. As promised we WILL do the draw for the Goodie Bag this week.

Oh, and here is a photo of me for good measure!

PS: we have been having a little trouble with formatting today, and can't figure out how to get the spacings back to normal...


  1. People are weird creatures. Cats are so much better in so many ways. Do we hurt each other ? No, we know who the boss is and be respectful! Well, usually.
    Fantastic things you got from Amazon - we are so glad the commentathon went well. Happy Thursday - there is indeed a lot to be thankful for.

  2. YAY , sooo many things Mayhew Animal Home will get !
    I´ll bet they will be sooo happy :)

  3. Great choices!

    I'm not much of a toyplayinkhanine, BUT even I love my Wubba!

    PeeEssWoo: Hey Tommy, more snuggles fur #1 please!

  4. Wow, you bought some very nice things. i'm sure it will be appreciated. Regarding Google spacing - it just has a mind of it's own sometimes, and there isn't much you can do about it.

  5. What a wonderful goodie selection for
    the Mayhew Animal Home and know how much everything will be appreciated.
    Bibi-Chan we love your picture in the sunshine - we'd love to know what you're thinking.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  6. What a wonderful selection. It is a great idea to go for the big ticket item like that. It warms our hearts to think of the fun that will be had with those toys and scratchers, too :)

  7. wow - that is some great shopping!! we bet they will be thrilled.

    (oh and mom has noticed that she can type a post, save it to publish later and the spacing is all over the place - stupid computer gremlins....)

  8. What a lot of lovely things, the animal home AND the animals will be so happy :-)

    PS - sometimes I have to switch from compose to html to remove unwanted spaces.

  9. Us blogonians got each others backs. Those little ballies are so cool
    Benny & Lily

  10. What an excellent selection, #1. The formulary is the most stellar of gifts! It will help the clinicians to provide the best medication regimen to all of the residents and those to come.
    Blessings to you all.

  11. Wow, you got so many nice things. We know they will be thrilled.

    It is our pleasure to know such kind friends.

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  12. We have not been visiting much and we hope that #1 starts feeling better. How rude... Anyway, it is good to be back and to see you.

  13. I'm sure the Mayhew Animal Home will be thrilled with these! Buying things from the Wishlist is such a great idea!

  14. Oooh! I just noticed your bell!
    I think it adds a dash of (something)! I'd get one, but I don't like the feel of that thing around the neck.

  15. Sorry we missed your post yesterday. (internet problems) We agree that furbabies are way better than humans, anyway. Wonderful pics yesterday and we luv the one for good measure today! XOXOXO

  16. I missed your post yesterday, trying to get caught up. But sorry someone hurt your feelings. Never any good. We have had some people leave nasty anonymous comments on our page as well. :(

  17. I think I may be on my way to becoming a recluse!! :p
    Bibi we are joining you in sunshine worshipping today. Hooray!
    The Mayhew Animal Home is fortunate to be the recipient of so many things on their wishlist.
    We appreciate your kindness and we are certain they no doubt appreciate it that much more!
    Enjoy the sun everyone :)

  18. What wonderful things you all are giving to Mayhew Animal Home!!!!! We bet they will be truly excited :)
    We are so sorry #1 had such a rotten week and before that(dealing with the mean bean who abused Urey) !!!
    We figure that is enough bad luck and we are doing our best to send positive vibes and purrs :)
    We know that 4 cats,1 dog and 2 horses will do lots to keep #1 smiling !!

    Purrs Tillie and Georgia,
    Tiger,Treasure and JJ

  19. Chin up #1, we did the wish list thing for our shelter a few years ago when we did a tock shot and commentathon for Derby's purrthday. Got them a cool portable shelter for the mobile adoption unit.

  20. What great things you were able to get for the animals at the home. We know they will appreciate it all. Hope #1 is feeling better and some good things happen.

    Your friends,
    Niamh & Ambrose

  21. Oh noes, I missed this post yesterday and I don't know how.

    What wonderful things for the Mayhew Animal Home. You are all loving supporters and I know Mayhew will be very very grateful. xoxox

    Tell #1 that we ALL are there for her any time she wishes to reach out for caring and support we are here for her. She is right; some people do spend their would-have-been-valuable time striking out at others out of jealousy and sometimes meaness of spirit. But do not let that cause her more than a moment's reflection. Go on walking in the sun the way you always do and let that meaness of spirit fall away and dry on the ground, lost forever.
