Thursday Thirteen: Thanks!

[A picture of me with Uncle Dave's shoes. I'm going to miss them - I mean- him. See below.]

Happy Thanksgiving, everycat! I know we don't celebrate Thanksgiving in Australia, but why should Americats have all the fun (and all the turkey)? Here is a list of 13 things that I'm particularly thankful for at the moment...

1. That Nick's brother, Uncle Dave, came to stay with us for a week or so. He lives in northern Tasmania, and I don't get to see him that often. Come and stay anytime, Uncle Dave, and bring your sneakers. They smell GREAT!!!
2. That Nick's other brother, Uncle Simon, is staying with us now, while he's between rentals. Not sure what his shoes smell like yet. He needs to leave them lying around in the living room more often (are you reading this, Uncle Simon?).
3. My new nip bee toy from IKEA - thanks, Sarah and Macsie!
4. That my good friend Phoebe is feeling a little better.
5. That it is only 2 sleeps until the Australian election... I'm sick of Kate yelling at the TV!
6. That it's nearly summer here in Australia, which means that the sun gets up nice and early so Kate lets me outside early and I can stay out until late hanging out in the garden with Kate.
7. That I've got an awesome new backyard to play in and explore.
8. That I haven't had a fight with any of my new neighbours... yet...
9. That I have an awesome big new house. With awesome wooden floorboards on which I can practise my Tokyo drift.
10. That my NFL team, the Minnesota Vikings, beat the Raiders 29-22 last weekend. Skol, Vikings, skol!!!
11. That God made chickens and turkeys and cows and tunas and sheeps and pigs... yum!!
12. That I have a great life in West Hobart with Nick and Kate.
13. That I have so many awesome friends in the Cat Blogosphere. Thanks for being my mates!

Cheers,
--Pabs

We wish you Happy Thanksgiving even tho you don't celebrate it... and we are sending some "turkey bits" your way, just to share. It seems you're doing well in your new home, so we will add that to our list of what to be thankful for... and we are thankful to know you! PS... we learned something "new" last night on Jeopardy... Tasmania is the only Australian state named after a man! Was he a man cat?

Wonderful thanks, Pablo! And I know what you mean about elections and all that yelling at the TV. My human does that too, but we've got a whole YEAR to listen to it before our election!

Hi Pablo, What a good Thanksgiving list. Phoebe really likes the smelly sneakers too. Grandma's are nice and smelly. Phoebe and I are going to make a Thankful list too.

Happy Thanksgiving to you too! You are welcome to teleport over for turkey -- we have a lot of it in our 'fridge and freezer.

Those are all great things to be thankful for!

Shoes are the best, aren't they?

That's a great looking bee Pablo. We don't have an IKEA here in Milwaukee either. The nearest one is in Chicago (about 2 hours south). I should probably put an IKEA bee on my list for Santa.
