The thankful-est Thursday of them all

Today, I'm thankful for many things.

I'm thankful that I live in a warm, safe house in a safe, quiet part of the world.

I'm thankful for having such awesome people, Kate and Nick, to love me and look after me.

I'm thankful for having so many awesome blogging buddies around the world.

But most of all, my friends, today I'm thankful that I don't live in a house with a blurpy bean who takes an active interest in cats:
That's my buddy Beto and his blurpy friend Bella. Guess which one of them is having fun?

Happy Thanksgiving to all my Americat friends, and to all my other buddies around the world.

Temptations in Tasmania!!!

Look what Kate found at the supermarket:
Finally, Aussiecats get a chance to experience the taste sensation that Americats have been loving for years! Can't wait to see what they're like.

Look at what Kate found in the backyard this morning:

Oh yeah, I've still got it!

Thankful Thursday... breaking news!

Pablo here with some late-breaking news: Chumper, the long-time Hobart Cat Centre resident I blogged about yesterday has found a Forever Home with a lovely young lady from Hobart's northern suburbs! Read all about it here.

Confused about what's going on? Read yesterday's post and it'll all make sense.

News from the Hobart Cat Centre

About a month ago, Kate and her friends Em and Gwyd paid a visit to my local cat shelter, the Hobart Cat Centre. It was the Cat Centre's annual open day, and marked their first birthday in their brand new facilities:That's a picture of the main entrance. But there's more to it than that. They have great facilities for kittens and grown-up cats who need homes, and comfy boarding facilities for cats who need a place to stay when their beans go on holidays.

Kate didn't get any good shots of the residents (it's hard to take good shots through bars and anyway, there weren't very manycats there, because it wasn't kitten season), but one of them is now famous! Yesterday, our local newspaper, the Hobart Mercury, did a feature on Chumper, a tortie girl who's been at the Cat Centre since last December and who is hanging out for a forever home. You can read her story here. Kate and her friends met Chumper during their visit. They said that she's a nice girl, but seemed a bit fed up. We hope you find a forever home soon, Chumper!

P.S. While Kate was at the Cat Centre, she made a donation in Luxor's name, because Luxor was the winner of my AWESOME Footy Finals Fever Competition. And she gave extra money, because Luxor was generous enough to say that he didn't need the toys that I'd offered as part of the prize, and wanted these to go to some kitties in need. Thanks for your generosity, Lux!

Dona nobis pacem...

It's fun to be a part of the Blogblast for Peace. Who says that cats can't help to make the world a better place?

Cheers (and peace),

Super DUPER Tuesday

Whether you're a Democat or a Republicat, or an interested international observer like myself, you can't deny the fact that the next 24 hours in American politics are going to be huge.
I'm sitting outside today in the still-chilly spring air wondering what the future's gonna bring.

Americats, please make sure that your beans get out and vote! It must be an honour and a privilege to get to have a say in deciding who's gonna be the next president. All we over here can do is watch and wait...

Here's to a clear and decisive result, and a bright future for our world.
