Dearest peoples on the innernets,
Hi. My name is Samuel L Jackson Graves III...my friends and mommy call me Sammy for short. I'm the newest member of the Whiskers & Purrs Gang. Mommy rescued me back in the summer. I had been either leaved behind when my family moved or just dumped. Either way, my family didn't love me enough to even care if I was safe and okay.
I heard on the street that there was a woman that lived in a white house that kept suppers outside for homeless kitties. I found her house but I was very real cautious 'round her...she might be mean to me. I would wait in the bushes for her to put the food out and, once she had gone back inside her house, I would go eat it ALL.
One day she put my foods inside of a metal lookin' box thing...I didn't care...I was starvink. I walked inside the box and...BANG...a door closed. I was more mad than skeert...mad that she would trick me like that. See...I just knew that beans could not be trusted. She taked me somewhere and they poked and squeezed on all of my stuff...and drained out my bloods...how ROOD! The vet called mommy and said that I was healthy and had already had my big boy operation.
So mommy came and gotted me. She taked me to the inside of the white house...it was nice and cool...and quiet...I got to be in what she called the "kitchen" with her and eat my suppers...lots of suppers. I made sleeps for almost 24 hours straight. And then...I got to meet my new family...Mazie and Joey and Elsie and Harry and Buddy and Holly...and what seemed like a million other cats...I swear I ain't never seened so many cats in my life! I innerdooced myself to everybody and gave every single cat a gentle headbutt. And...believe it or not, we have all been friends ever since.
So...in the US, we're celebratink Thanksgiving Day today. It ain't 'bout a big feast or goin' shoppink or anything like that. Here's what all of us in the Gang is thankful for...today and every day:
- A safe place to make sleeps that is dry and clean and warms
- Not havin' to worry 'bout somebody or some animal tryin' to hurt us
- Good, healthy suppers to eat when we is hungry...and even when we ain't hungry...
- A very real good vet that is smart that we trust
- Lots and lots of good friends to snuggle with...I like to cuddle up to Elsie. Me and her is friends.
- A mommy that loves us more than anything or anybody in the whole wide worlds
- A never ending supply of kisses, belly rubs and hiney scratches
Today as you is celebratin' Thanksgiving Day, please be grateful for all you have. And please say a prayer for all the little animals that are not as fortunate as you and me...
Very truly yours,
