Thankful Thursday: Crocheted Get Well Presents from Ellen at

Brian's Home.  Adopt cats, we deserve it!
When you’re not feeling your best it’s so nice to get a gift that makes you smile and makes you feel better, at least for a little while. That’s what happened here when the postal person dropped off something very special.

I couldn’t believe it when Dad opened it for me. ย It was a great big bunch of crocheted toys from Mom Ellen and the cast of kitties over at, including the famous chicken drumstick!

WeeeeeeOoooooo, that was a nice bunch of fun, and in case you were wondering, yes I did share with my sisters. We’ll save those photos for another time though.

Brian's Home.  Adopt cats, we deserve it! I sure had a big time with the toys and it was just the break I needed. I’ve gotta say that I did end up putting the bitey on one of the toys more than the others though.

Those little fishy ones were so much fun, and even though I shared the others, these are mine, mine, mine! ย Thanks again Ellen, they really did make my day a happy one and I’m very thankful that you thought of me.

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! ย More Forever Homes More Often! ย Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Wasn’t that just so sweet of them! We think the drumstick is really cute. We have some of their toys and like the ball the best! Mom finds it all over the house and when she accidentally steps on it, it doesn’t hurt her foot.
