Gratitude and Thanks

It's Thanksgiving and I'm reflecting on a challenging year that holds many things to be thankful for.

I'm thankful that things worked out the way they did when we had the fire back in February. Mama had our emergency kit, the Shawnee Police Officer carried Dottie down the stairs, and the local fire departments fought so hard, saving all the structures around our burning building.

I'm thankful for the staff at BluePearl, the emergency/specialty V-E-T in Overland Park who tried so hard to find out what was wrong with me and who cared for me so lovingly while I was there. They not only treated me kindly, but they treated Mom and Dad the same.

I'm beyond grateful that Mom and Dad made the excruciating decision to help me Over the Rainbow Bridge. I was so sick. Even though no amount of time on this earth would have been enough for us to be together, we'll have eternity together one day. I'm happy and healthy once again and I couldn't ask for more.

I'm thankful for everyone who reached out to help us this year. My Twitter family pulled together to support our family through all of the difficulties we faced. We couldn't have done it without you!

A special shout out goes to Linda @MrsKrameDog Kramer. She not only hooked Mom and Dad up with an invitation to the Q&A session before the Aerosmith concert in Kansas City, her hubby Joey Kramer signed Mom's CD AND she upgraded their seats for the show. It was the best Aerosmith show Mom and Dad had been to. My pals really pulled together on that one too!

I hope you all have a happy Thanksgiving and a happy holiday season. I'll be watching over all the festivities from my cloud and if you look up in the sky at night, you'll see my star twinkling with love.


  1. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family, Sebastian! I love that Joey Kramer was so good to them - my human was a music journalist in the 80s and 90s and although she never knew the Aerosmith guys, she heard from others they were good people - this totally proves it. And thank YOU for sending them such a lively kitty to help them heal! ;-) (He sounds like the male version of Binga!)

  2. You have much to be thankful for. Happy Thanksgiving!!

  3. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. Glad Mom got her autographs.

    Hope you and your family had a happy Thanksgiving!

  5. So happy things turned out well. Miss you buddy, but we didn't want to see you suffer either. Happy for mom too - things are looking up!

  6. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family Sebastian! We know that you're missed, but you'll always be with your family. {{hugs}}

  7. You posted a beautiful blog. Things just do work out even though we can't always see it coming. Hugs and purrs to all.

  8. MUCH indeed to be thankful for - what a fabulous post!
