Thankful Thursday


I have so much to be thankful for...good food, a warm bed, great toys and family that loves me. Speaking of family, I want to introduce you to some of my extended family...you know, cousins, nieces and nephews.

First we'll start off with Jara...she is my 'cousin'...I like Jara, but she doesn't like me...I don't know why. I keep hearing the word 'jealous' when people talk to her (they say 'Jara, don't be jealous, he's just a baby!'). Every time I see Jara I try really hard to get her to like me, but she only growls at me. What's a boy to do??

And look at this!!! Yep!! Real live birds!! Are these also my cousins?? All 9 of them? They live with Jara and boy are they talkative! Jara also has a sister-cat named Julia, but I don't have a picture of her. Would you believe that Jara, Julia and all 9 birds live in peace in the same house??

And, well, best of all, here is my niece Anezka (well, she is Mom's niece by marriage so I figure she is also my niece, right?). Anezka LOVES me!! Anezka is CRAZY ABOUT ME!! She loves me and hugs me and plays with me and gives me great things to eat. I think I also love Anezka!!

But there is also my nephew Ferda who loves me. He and I have a great time chasing each other around his house and what is really great is that he is a not tall like all the other beans so it is easier for me to reach up and lick his face!! haha!! I love to surprise lick bean faces!! Ferda has a brother - his name is Albert and Albert loves me, too, but this day that I was visiting them Albert had some of his friends over so he didn't have much time to play with me, but I know he loves me.

I am so lucky and so thankful for my extended family that loves me so and that I also love....Anezka, Albert and Ferda; Jara, Julia and all 9 birds!!! I'm so lucky!!!
