Blizzard ~ One Cool Cat

 Of course he paid no attention to me when I yelled at him to get off the table. He was supervising my letter-writing.Someone needed to chase my pen and rearrange the paper & cards as I wrote.And let's not forget, he also needed to make sure my coffee was just right by sticking his nose into my cup.
Blizzard is one cool cat, really! He is fearless. He chases my vacuum as I run it, he checks out the running bath water, and when any children come over, no matter how many and how loud they might be, he rushes into their arms for attention. He will fall asleep in anyone's lap and run to snuggle big dogs even if they have no intention of being friendly. He stalks and wrestles our son's Jack Russell terriers, then naps with them. I know Blizzard will enjoy our Thanksgiving company, most of the family celebrating in our home with us are cat lovers, and a few of them will be children.

I am recovering from smashing my thumb in my car door. It is hard to type with a smashed & bandaged right thumb , it is hard to craft,sew, hard to slice and peel vegetables & fruit. I have been enjoying Blizzard even more as I have had to accept that I am not able to be as busy working with my hands as I am accustomed. And Blizzard is pretty good at showing me how to relax, things will get done or not, but they will work out!

Yes, you are right. He is setting a perfect example for you there. :D
Sorry to hear of your accident and hope the finger heals nicely and quickly. And that your Thanksgiving is everything it should be, and I have no doubts on that point. Just enjoy!

I think he actually adds beauty to your table. My cats like to be the center-piece. Heal quickly as I know your company is coming. Deb

We had two cats for YEARS. While I enjoyed their antics and cuddling with them, I do NOT miss the hair and the litter box and their "messes."

I think I'm "over" pets.

What a sweet kitty! Now, I love a cat like Blizzard. He probably lets the kiddos carry him around all saggy-baggy, too. Cats do what they want - ALWAYS. He wants to help with your letter-writing- maybe he's cheering you up and you're noticing your painful thumb less! Hope it heals quickly! And yes, the important things will get done! Happy Thanksgiving Kathy!

Oh~ bless your heart, Kathy... I cringed when I read you had smashed your finger... oh boy, does that hurt.
Blizzard is a handsome fellow, and I'll bet he is a good companion.
Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Oh my goodness, I am so sorry to hear about your thumb! That must have hurt so badly.

Blizzard is a cool cat! One who thinks of making others happy and exploring his world. It is kind of rare to get a good one like that. Over the years, I have only had two, and they were both boys.

So very sorry about your thumb.
Blizzard is gorgeous. John's kitten, Blue, has the same personality! Nothing like a cat to lift our spirits!!!
