Thankful Thursday and Hello Angel Sunshine




We are thankful for this purrfect day.


*BIGIFY for best viewing*
If is difficult to get really good pictures of Sammy. He often turns out to be nothing but a "black hole" because he almost always closes his eyes due to dislike of the flash. In order for him to get his time on our blog, we recycle some of his pics. :)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~


We welcome Angel Sunshine to our blog. Over the years our mama has had many, many, many kitties and puppies. For 23 years she lived in a housing development outside the city limits, and it seemed to be a favorite dumping area for unwanted dogs and cats. Many of them found mama, or mama found them and cared for them. A nearby vet donated his time, efforts and supplies to neuter all these darlings. We want to get vsquillion angels for the ones we hear mama talk about the most.

Sunshine was a white kitty with black spots......somewhat like Andy, except she had short hair and a few more black spots. She was really a love and a joy, thus the name Sunshine. When mama would go to bed at night, Sunshine would jump up on the bed, step up on mama's chest and drop this little ball that she had in her mouth. That was the signal for mama to throw the ball out the bedroom door so it would bounce down the hall.....with Sunshine in hot pursuit behind it. She would pick it up in her mouth and return to mama and the game would continue until Sunshine got tired. Then her and her ball would curl up beside mama and go to sleep!!!!!

We wish we could have known Sunshine....
we know we would have loved her, too.

We always knew your MamaBug was special, and knowing she took care of homeless kitties makes her even more wonderful! We're sure you guys would've loved Sunshine. We think you're the luckiest kitties ever!

Madi and Mom said...

Madi has a weak spot for dark, handsome mancats...she says she gets the vapors when she looks at Sammy (Andy you are handsome too but this is Sammy's day).

Your mom is a very special person for having taken care of all those kitties and doggies. And for a vet to donate time and services like that is practically unheard of here. So kudos to him as well!

Sunshine sounds like she was a very special, precious girl--the angel vsquillion is a great way to remember and honour her.

Your mama was wonderful to help these kitties and woofies find homes or at least get 'tutored'. Sunshine sounds like a great cat indeed.

We have trouble taking good pics of our black cats too, Devon and Smokey.

All those kitties and puppies were so lucky to find your mum or that your mum found them.

Black cats are very hard to photograph, but this is a great photo! xo, Raymond

You are looking manly Sammy!
Sunshine sounds like such a sweet kitteh. It was really sweet of you and Andy to get momma an angel to remember her by.
Is really sweet of your momma to help all the homeless animals too. I think there is a speshul place in heaven for those that help the less-fortunate.

Sunshine sounds like a wonderful baby, a real love...Caring for homeless babies is such a kind thing for your Mom to do; a difficult, sometimes heartbreaking job too...Hope you guys have a great day...xo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

Amy and The House of Cats said...

What a wonderful way to remember Sunshine! And your mom is awesome to have helped all those who needed it!

And our mom also understands about photographing black kitties - Sammy looks so much like Floyd, and he too would often end up a black hole - even with the flash on!

Sunshine sounded furry special. Thank you for sharing her with us.
Momma has trouble all the time in photographing me and Boo because we are both have mostly black faces. She has taken a jillion pictures of me and outta all of those pictures she only has about 10 that are her favorites.
