Thankful Thursday - Ode to Harley

Today I'm thankful for my little [almost 12 pound] fur ball.
Let me preface this by saying, I'm kind of crazy about my cat...
But I'm NOT a crazy cat lady....
I think...

Dear Harley,
It's been almost a year since you walked in and surprised me with a big blue bow around your neck. I wanted you for so long even before I met you, and Bryan knew it. He drove far and wide to find you and bring you home to me, I couldn't have been more excited. From the very beginning you've been a cuddle bug. You love curling right up next to me or Bry and staying there until one of us gets up.
You quickly adjusted to our apartment and loved exploring and playing on/through/under everything. I swear you were a dog in another life - you loved baths, you 'begged' for human food, you perk your ears up when someone comes to the door or when you hear our keys jingle. You're our little guard kitty.
You're not even one years old yet and you are already a huge mancat, what happened to the baby kitten that fit into my hand? You are fluffy and full of love still. You nip at our hands when we touch your belly, but we can't help it, we love your big belly! I hope you love our new home as much as we do, there's so many more places for you to explore!
Thank you for being the best cat I could've ever wished for. Even though you drive us up-the-wall crazy sometimes, you sit by us when we're sick, cuddle us when we're cold, and sleep right between us some nights. I'm going to go out on a limb and say you're kinda spoiled... but until we have real babies [not fur ones]
I'm ok with that :)

Do you love your fur babies? Do you take pictures of them? I feel a little crazy but I love my little guy :)


  1. Harley is soooo freaking cute! And he's now the size of Diesel! LOL.

    I think you know my answer to your question... our 3 wiener babies are the loves of our life. they completely run our home, and sleep between us every night. without them, life would be soooo boring.

    i think you need to get harley a woman friend! ;)

  2. We have 2 cats and LOVE THEM TO PIECES! The not-very-fluffy one likes to sleep curled up on my mom's dresser (my mom recently got her a kitty bed for that spot) or against my dad since he goes to sleep earlier than the rest of us or curled up in the crook of someone's legs when that person is sleeping. We just love our fur babies!

    I have taken TONS of pictures of them. I even have an entire Facebook album dedicated to them and the crazy places and postures they sleep in and sit on. :)

  3. Ohhh fur babies are the BEST! And what a beautiful cat Amanda! he is just HANDSOME!

  4. How sweet. We adore our pets. I take pictures of them all the time, although most of them are blurry because they rarely stand still! :)

  5. Your description of yourself almost took the words right out of my mouth.

    So glad to be a new follower.

  6. I love my cute cats too! I wish ours were as nice sounding as yours. Ours are kind of grumpy old ladies. Those pictures are so cute! We have a sink picture just like yours! Lol!

  7. What a sweet kitty- I love pets!

  8. Aww, he is all kinds of adorable!
