Hello everyone, I hope everyone had a wonderful thanksgiving this year.

This Thanksgiving I spent with my kitty Koal at home with Randy. It was a wonderful Thanksgiving spent together the first year home and Koal’s first Thanksgiving together was very special to me. It meant a lot that I spent it with the people I truly do love and care for. We had turkey and stuffing with potatoes with veggies and I made blue berry muffins. We had apple pie and pumpkin pie too; some wine also – it was wonderful. As we ate Koal always begs for food he lays right in between Randy and I and looks at us hoping and praying that someone drops something on the floor so he can have it but the funny part about all this is if we give Koal a plate to lick he actually covers it up. Every time he does this with his food and water bowls too. Is this normal for a kitten to do this all the time? I say its a cat’s instincts to do this but I am unsure.

Then on Nov. 30th I had gone by my cousin’s for a second Thanksgiving dinner. A lot of people showed up for that. I had fun playing with my cousin’s dog and two gorgeous cats too!

I’m very blessed for the blessings God has given to me specially Koal. He is such a sweet heart. I’m also blessed with Milo’s precious presence still near I still feel her presence a lot yet and I’m so thankful for that. Knowing Milo still is with me and never left my side. I’m soooo very blessed

Koal loves to hide under the bed when someone comes in and walks around the bed or even come close to it he sticks his adorable black paw out and tackles your feet playfully. It is so cute !!

Koal is a bundle of joy a bundle of love! A bundle of encouragement, a bundle of hope, a bundle of a meaningful relationship, a bundle of spice, a bundle of sugar, a bundle of cares, a bundle of a blessing that is all wrapped up in one!! I can’t thank God enough for the wonderful gift of Koal

Koal is my rock when I am weak. Koal is strong when I am not. Koal is the sunshine that lights my day when the rain pours down. Koal is the light that lights up the sky. Koal shines like the stars lost in the sky. He gives me the moon when its sometimes hard to find. He gives me the rainbow of true friendship and promise. He gives me the twinkle in my eyes to tell me everything is all right. He gives me so much. I am so very blessed

Thank you Lord for the everlasting love of Koal. Amen

Seek not what you don’t have but be blessed with what you do have. Amen

  1. very true cats are very smart sometimes i think they out smart me at times lol i don’t know what i would do without a cat in my life

    • Thank you Darlene. I’m so pleased that you are having such a nice relationship with your new cat. I also particularly liked the fact that he is black. You have given a chance to a black cat to have a very nice life with a person who loves him and that person is you. Well done.

      • thanks michael yeah black cats are precious i love koal so much his personality is unbelievably awesome!! every black cat should find a loving home to call their own forget about the rumors about black cats i know everyone has their opinions on that subject what matters is the people who do own a black cat knows better to not believe the rumors told and thank you michael i do love koal so very much take care and god bless

        • Until I looked after Gabriel I always had black or black and white cats. This was because they were the cats there, around me, who needed to be rescued. Black and white is quite a common coat type for a domestic cat as is black. Unfortunately, there is still quite a lot of superstition surrounding black cats. Humankind is still very suspicious and superstitious.

            • Yay for black cats! Black cats rule! I also am glad you adopted a black cat. Elisa did an article some time ago about black cats being naturally healthier and more resilient. It’s not myth, it appears to be some genetically linked traits inclining them to better health– like an added bonus for the cats with black fur.

    • Darlene, Koal is beautiful. Sounds like you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Those are the days money can’t buy.

      I think black cats are very special. I know what you mean about him helping you to feel that Milo is still near. I used to call my black cat Merlin, my little dark angel.

      It’s said that cats will sometimes attempt to bury their food dish because they want to save the meal for later. They also know that the smell of food would attract unwelcome visitors such as rivals or predators. Try feeding him small portions so that everything gets eaten in one go. If the water dish is next to the food you might want to consider moving it somewhere else. Apparently cats would never choose to drink from a water source close to where they eat, because bacteria from the food could contaminate the water. How do they know all these things by instinct? (lol)

        • Much of their behaviours are based on instinct. It seems that survival knowledge is hardwired into their DNA.

          They’re also pretty smart animals, capable of learning new things very quickly. Especially if it benefits them in some way.

  2. Dear Darlene, Koal is not really hungry for his own plate: he just wants to accept your tokens from the Thanksgiving plate and connect with you in this way. That explains him covering his food bowl *
    If I’m right, he also loves to chase morsels across the floor or when dropped within his reach?
    Koal is a Happy Kitty_

  3. Thank you Darlene for telling us about your Thanksgiving experience with Koal. I’m sorry that I was late in publishing it. I can see that you have a beautiful relationship with him just as you had with Milo.
