Lily is Thankful

Hello There Furiends,
Lily here. I am purrticipating in  Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am very thankful that The Humans have reserved a special room just for me. It has a great view to the garden below and a nice fan over the bed for hot days. I often hang out there and just think about things. You know, the important stuff cats think of like how long ’till dinner, when will The Female Human break out the catnip again or when will the next empty box arrive?”
I don’t understand though, why they call my room the “Guest Room”. Why don’t they just call it “Lily’s Room” and if any of those so called guests show up, just tell them they will be staying in Lily’s room!

Neighborhood Watch-Feline Style

Alberto: “Lily do you see any suspicious activities?
Lily:         “Nope. No barkies, no neighborhood felines, not even a bear.”

Alberto: “So if we do see a bear or a bad guy, what are we supposed to do?
Lily:        “Hmm, good question. Without opposable thumbs we can’t call the police.
I think the best thing to do is run downstairs and hide in the Female
Human’s office.
Alberto:   “Good plan. I like this neighborhood watch thing. Sure hope the humans
appreciate all our hard work!”
