Its Me! Ali Z!
Hi Kitties and Pups!
Just a few letters today, but something important at the bottom, so stay with us!
Those big guys, those Splorin' Wolfies, want to know what Stella and I are hoping for from Santa this year?
Hmmm, Wolfies, we haven't made out our lists yet but I know I want to trade my boom box in on a music system and also get a new, bigger mirror for my dance moves. Stella just said she wants world peace and a balanced budget, and some new squeaky toys. Ah, well, to each his own!
Mack and Sally Ann want to know what we do for fun . . .I love to dance to my favorite samba tunes, play the piano, watch dvd movies and pop corn. Stella likes to eat my popcorn, read the paper, go on long walks, throw her squeaky toys around, and bug Mom. Stella falls asleep at the movies. What about you guys?
Huffle Mawson, Explorer Cat wrote saying: We don't have Thanksgiving Day in Australia, so can you tell me whats it in for the kitties? Do you get something special? Sorry to hear you are missing a holiday, Huffle. The humans like to think about what they are grateful for, then they cook a huge dinner that would feed everybody they ever knew. We pets might get some meaty morsels of this food, but mostly they don't want to upset our little tummies and don't give us much from the table (rrrrow!) Then the day after is Black Friday where all the stores have big sales, the big eaters struggle up out of their chairs and go shopping. Sometimes we score something from that. Maybe a bandanna, or a toy or treats made for us kitties and pups. Its not my favorite holiday but Stella likes it because she got two big meatballs in her dish. They were "too spicy" for me. Humph!
The OP Pack asked if we got some turkey on Thanksgiving. . .No we didn't. My Mom says we eat quite a bit of Turkey during the rest of the year so we mostly had swedish meatballs and lots of veggie things. Not that I got any, of course. Stella does OK though
Thanks for writing and I love to answer your questions.
There is an important article in this weeks TIME (December 7) magazine. An article called Abused No More featuring Pit Bulls who have been rescued from the fight ring. The headline says: The largest dogfighting crackdown in history rescued more than 500 tortured pit bulls. But the next step is tougher; rehabilitating--and finding homes for---canines who have know nothing but violence.
It contains a heartbreaking gallery of photos of many of these dogs, which is hard to look at and harder to read about, but we need to know these things.
This is going out early because tomorrow I go for my one day snooter surgery! Wish me well!
