Thanksgiving & Santa Paws

We celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving back in October, but seeing as Jimmy is American by birth, we thought another thanksgiving post was in order.  So on this special holiday I would like to say that I am thankful for all my good friends in the Cat Blogosphere, without whom I never would have met Chrystal or adopted little Jimmy. I am so deeply thankful for ALL my wonderful kitties who bring joy into my life every single day!

Yesterday it was posted on the CB that Jimmy had won the draw for Derry's Thankful Photo Contest Fundraiser and the prize was a fabulous selection of goodies paw-picked by the lovely Miss Gracie!  Well, being a youngster and never having won anything before, I must say Jimmy was thrilled when I told him. 
See Jimmy's winning ribbon!
However after a little thought Jimmy felt that in the spirit of Thanksgiving he would like to donate his toy winnings to some less fortunate kitties. He said that since he now had all the toys he could ever hope to play with, he would feel better if his prize went to some kitties who were still waiting for their forever homes! We contacted Gracie to see if that was okay. She thought it was a great idea and mentioned the CB's friends at Santa Paws.  I immediately sent an email over to them on Jimmy's behalf and I'm just waiting to hear back so I can give Gracie the details. 

I would like to wish all my feline friends and their parents a healthy and happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving, Jimmy! We think you're a very generous and sweet boy!

That's a wonderful gesture, Jimmy! We donated toys to Santa Paws, too, and there's one Canadian shelter on their list (one UK and one African, we think, as well as 3 U.S.). So it's a great cause to support!

Happy Thursday!

Jimmy you are such a generous kitten! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family (even though it's not really Thanksgiving Day for you). It's a good day to eat turkey if you can get your paws on it!

Awwww ... Jimmy is so young and yet already he is showing the generosity of spirit of a much older cat. We are VERY proud of him. And in the pic ~ he looks just like a younger Alfie Marshall.

We hope Jimmy's ferst Thanksgiving day was awesome.

Hi Jimmy. How nice of you to donate your winnings to the less fortunate - never forget your roots. You are now one of the lucky ones in an amazing home surrounded by love (and toys) for the rest of your life.
Hugs to all.

Oh my goodness, I'm sorry I'm so late visiting/commenting, but I just had to leave a message once I read this! Mr. Jimmy, you are a very lucky little boy - your new Canadian family celebrated our American Thanksgiving for you! And you are a very wise and kind boy, too, to realize you have it good and to want to give happiness to other kitties who are not as lucky. I have to admit, I was pouting when I found out my mom was giving those toys to the shelter kitties. Now that I've read your post, I realize I was being silly. You are a Good Boy.

Your friend, Zoe
