Thankful For My Constant Companions

Real Estate Agent with GreatWest Realty DRE# 00827565

Since my family is grown and have families of their own, my two fur buddies, Reuben and Camilla, are a blessing to share life with!

Reuben (the Ginger Tabby), often begs for me to come sleep with him.  He finds a spot near my feet and acts as a foot warmer.  Camilla (the Calico), occupies a chair next to mine in the computer room. I’m rarely more than a couple feet of patting fur!

I’m thankful for my constant companions!

This month Debbie Reynolds (the Real Debbie Reynolds) is hosting a 10 Day Thanksgiving Post Challenge.  This is Day 4.

Myrl Jeffcoat - I no longer have pets but I do know when pet sitting, my friend's cats crave human companionship and create great warmth and affection.

Yours are so beautiful!!!

Love that picture of your babies, Myrl. I was planning to write about mine later today and about how thankful I am for all the wonderful pets who have graced my life.

Hi Myrl Jeffcoat -  We are a kitty family as well.  Once my grandson is a bit older we may get a new addition. We miss our kitties, they had a long life with us and I am so happy you have your two fur buddies to love.  Thank you for sharing.

Good morning Myrl.  So glad you have your fur buddies to keep you company (and warm).     I have often thought of getting a pet but I travel quite a bit and it would seem selfish to leave them with strangers.

So let me get this straight, Myrl. Reuben begs for you to come sleep with him so you get up out of bed, throw on a robe and curl up with him on the kitchen floor, over by the heat vent?

Myrl they are both adorable!  I can see them wanting to be near 'Mom' and getting some lovies from time to time all day long!

Myrl, What a great picture of Reuben and Camilla and these obviously get along very well. Pets make wonderful companions and it is a true blessing these two are in your life. 

I do vagely remember life before Miss Duchess but I am so happy she is here as part of this family.

Myrl wouldn't it be great if people could get along as great as Reuben and Camilla appear to in the picture above.
