So here I am, thankful for the fact that it’s Thursday again. I am thankful to not be Borg this week.
I am thankful that I got to visit with Jake and Bathsheba and that their human has their help in this difficult time.Â Our purrs to her.Â Â I am thankful that today we are going to visit Samantha and Tigger.Â Tomorrow we visit Tara.
I would like to reflect on the bright spots in tragedy. I am thankful that the reverse 911 evacuation warnings seem to be working in San Diego. I am also thankful that humans seem to have learned their lesson with Katrina. People with pets are not being questioned in shelters.
I am impressed with the amount of assistance being given to horse and livestock owners. The equipment needed to haul a horse is much more expensive than what is needed to haul me. Some horses do not live with their owners. This means that in a mandatory evacuation, the family is not together. It’s a tough thing to be the loving owner of a horse in a disaster of these proportions and we are happy to see that everyone seems to be helping out our tall friends.
I am thankful that humans seem to have learned that we are well…hmm… perhaps the intelligent life they keep looking for?

We’re thankful more lives were not lost…but we’z still worry bout all da wildlife and stray pets. Dis is just so terrible.
Those are a lot of great things to be thankful for …
You are very thoughtful, and those are some good things to be thankful for.
That’s lots to be thankful for! Though I’m thankful I don’t have to help pick up a horses PTU, the thought alone is enough to give a cat a hernia! 😉
Amen to all of those things. I am keeping all of those poor animals in my prayers.
Those are very good things to be thankful for.
Purrs to all the animals & beans in and near the fires.
Fires are awful! I hope you don’t live close to them?!
We are thankful that as bad and as destructive as the fires are in California so many lives have been saved.
We are also thankful to see that the lessons of Katrina and the bad fires of 2003 have made a difference in how notifications are done.
We continue to pray that things improve for all of those affected.

A few years ago, when we had Hurricane Charley, they started opening shelter that allowed pets. There is only one though and there are more people that want in then there is room in the shelter. You also have to be able to prove your pet have all it’s vacines before they let you in. At least it is a start, perhaps more shelters will open that will take pets during emergencies.
Captain Jack and Dante says
Those are all very good things to be thankful for. We are also thankful that the emergency people are realizing that pets are family and are not neglecting them!
Those are wonderful things to be thankful for. Our mommy always worries about the furries the most during tragedies, and we’re grateful that more attention is being paid to saving them, too.
We are very thankful that the horses are being cared for. It is hard to move a horse and some horses have never even been on trailers. Such a scary thing.

Kelly Cat says
In this life, anything can happen at any time. All you can do is make each day count. Good humans are not easy to find, but worth it when you do…
Black Cat says
I’m so glad that lessons have been learned post-Katrina and that pets are being allowed into shelters. I have been so worried for all the furries as well as the beans. I hope and pray that all can be saved and that they will have homes to return to when the fires are finally put out. What a terrible time for all in the area. xxx
Vincent and Mike says
You are a very sweet and thoughtful kitty. We’re thankful for people who look after us furries too.
Forty Paws says
This is a wonderful Thankful Thursday post. We are hopeful that most of the large animals were successfully evacuated in California. We feel very sorry for the wildlife and any other critters that perished in those horrid fires. And we truly hope that Karma gets the sickos who started these fires.
