Thanks and Giving!


Here the cat is to wish all those Americans a Happy Thanksgiving and leave it at that.


"Right. You never ever will shut up with just a few words. You'd probably be wishing Martians a happy Martian Day before you were through."

No one was talking to you, Prissy Cassie. Go away. We are to be thankful today.

"What? One whole day? Humans sure know how to try and make themselves feel better, huh?"

Someone woke up on the wrong side of the ass pillow.


"Wasn't me. I'm still on the bum pillow."

Quiet, interloper. No one was talking to you either. I can't catch a break.


"I do admit that this is a strange custom. Sticking hands up butts to stuff things? And you humans say we are the probing ones."

Go back to cleaning up the toilet paper that I...you shredded.

"What am I? Your maid?"

Whiny aliens. I had to get a whiny alien. Now as I was saying....Oh No!


"This is really good, Uncle Pattie."

Why are you here? Go away. Shoo. I don't want your boogers. And why are you bringing Pat into this? I already have enough people talking. You are going to confuse my readers. Now shoo!

"I think you confuse them enough.

Quiet, Cass. Or I'll let him go wipe boogers on your ass.

"Am I ever thankful you didn't talk long."


Shut it. And stop trying to take the spotlight. Be thankful for good things.

"Like what?"

House, food...

"So things we should be thankful for everyday but are only thankful for them on one day?"

Quiet. I'm the cynical one. Be thankful for...turkey. There. Happy?

"So be thankful for a bird that got killed, shipped to a supermarket, had hands up its ass and stuffed with God knows what, and then eaten soon becoming human poop. Be thankful for that? Are the turkeys thankful?"

Bah, get off my blog. You are taking my way on things.

"Don't like it when used against you, huh?"

Fine. I'll give and be thankful too. Humans are only thankful one day much like that stupid Hallmark day and then they stomp on each other for deals that aren't really deals in the first place because the stores are the ones that win and usually just crank them up then put them down and if you do manage to save any money you've spent it on your meal with all the fixings and getting to where you are going to hang out with family you like, kinda like, secretly hate, and maybe really hate and you can't tell whether your smile is real or fake by the end of it while your loosening your belt and getting ready for a day full of crapping and using up your toilet paper, or Imodium, whatever your pleasure, and then driving back from where you came from in traffic that will make you swear and lose all your thankfulness that you showed for one whole day to everything that you have everyday anyway that you never show to it the other 364 or 365, next year is a leap year you know, days out of the year. 

"Did you even stop to realize your run on sentence? Geez, and I'm the one confusing your readers? What few there are."

Quiet. Unlike the other 364 or 365 days, today I am thankful for the interloper.


"Does that mean I get to blog too?"

No. Stand there and look pretty. 

"Awww, but why?"

You sound like a poop machine. Thankfulness rescinded. 

"No fair."

Life's not fair....damn it, now I sound like Nanny.


I'm staying up here for the rest of the day. Happy Thankful One Whole Day For What You Have Every Other Day, everyone! A little wordy. Hmm...maybe Cassie was right. I can't shut up.

Be thankful every day, as you don't know when such things will go away.

    1. haha the cat can sure spurt them out. Uncle Pattie has two munchkins on his heels, and one out of two cats like them, the other tolerates them lol

  6. Haha I’m sure turkeys are not thankful!

  7. You're right. We should be thankful every day, and I'm sure turkeys aren't overly fond of Thanksgiving. Like a poem I wrote years ago begins, "There once was a turkey names Jake, who said, "How much must we poor turkeys take? When Thanksgiving comes 'round, we must go underground. Why can't all those people eat steak?"

  10. I am thankful for my family. I know, that sounds trite, but it is totally true.

  11. Eating dinner with people we kinda, sorta like once a year... why do we do that to ourselves? Some of these people we ignore the rest of the year LOL. I'm usually thankful when the dinner is over and I can go home and take a nap.

    Replies
    1. haha yeah it seems once a year we do put ourselves through that. In my case it is to make the family member you like happy. Home and nap sounds more fun though.

  13. I first have to comment on the “deals that aren’t really deals anyway”. Cat, I got season 14 of Supernatural for $10 yesterday. Yes, TEN DOLLARS!!!!! That alone makes all the people stomping totally worth it.

    I think I know why you’re so grumpy about thanksgiving, cat. You wanted a stuffed shell. No worries, I have extra and I don’t judge. I’d be grumpy if I didn’t get one either.

    P.S. can you send the house cleaning alien this way? I need someone to put away the fall decor and clean up the space for Christmas!!!!! Haha

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. $10 is a deal indeed, but but but by selling them at that price the stores have less stock, which means less inventory count at the end of the year, which means saving $$$.

      A stuffed shell? Well the cat would eat it.

      The alien may charge a bit too much, plus he's lazy.

      Delete
    2. But it’s still a deal!! I also got a huge, gigantic box of Rubbermaid containers for $7.99. It may not be a new TV, but it’s a great deal that makes me just as happy. :)

      Delete
    3. True, it is still a deal. The cat won't argue with you there, much.

      Delete
  14. LOL to the cute Santa hat. I remember some of the women in my ex's family went shopping right after Thanksgiving dinner. They'd camp out over night. No need to do that now, Black Friday starts a week before, and Cyber Monday has become 'Cyber Week.' Oh and the Christmas season now starts in October too, if you're looking at things from a retailers perspective. :)

    1. Ugg, shopping would never be that dire to me that I'd have to camp out. Yep, with all the options now, one sure doesn't have to worry about getting anything.

  15. I'm thankful for all my blessings and they are many. Love your kitties. They're independent, as they should be. They're more fun that way.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Thanks for the good wishes on our day. We had a good one and heck yeah we're thankful. We get to start the great consumer month of Christmas. Oh wait, that started before Halloween was even done. But seriously - your posts are something to be grateful for and I am. Have a good week - it's December now, dang!

    1. Yeah, that consumer stuff was sure started a long time ago, seen stuff out in the summer.

  17. True - the hand up the butt
    gets one into a rut
    I just eat it straight
    I'm no perve, but it's sure great.

  18. I'm with the cat on stuffing turkeys. Even when I was a carnivore I thought that was a bit gross:) Fun post and darling pics:)
    YOU have a great one, my friend.

    1. Yep, gross in every way. Who thought of that anyway?

  21. Expressions on kitty cat faces in general are so telling. Love these!

  22. Cats probably do think we are the most ridiculous creatures.

  23. We had a veggie Thanksgiving one year, and I confess, I have been so thankful for turkey ever since!!! We don’t do Black Friday, and we try to show gratitude every day. Some days are easier than others. Ha ha! Your kitty cats make me miss my kitty cats so much!!!
