Thankful Thursday

Some of you may know that our Mommy used to smoke. She has quit a few times in the past, but she says she never really wanted to quit. Last month, for no apparent reason, she just decided that she wanted to stop and she stopped...just like that. Delilah and I are very thankful for this because we want our Mommy around for a long time. Now that it's been over a month and she's not afraid to jinx it, we can finally tell her how happy we are that she quit!

I tried smoking when I was a kitten, but it was just so I could look tougher for Delilah. She didn't like it so I quit right away!



Don't forget to enter our fetching event for the Cat-O-Lympics! Delilah is the athlete of our family. BUT, if there's a medal for spectating, I'll definitely win. Check out my spectacular spectating moves...

Fetching is a very challenging sport, we're sure Deli good chances on winning gold. We're so glad your mom sucessfully gave up smoking! Please give her some noselicks from us!

We're glad you didn't take up smoking Samson, and congrats to your mommy for quitting! Give her a headbutt from us!
Wow, I think Delilah will get the gold for fetching. . . that's an EXTREMELY difficult event! We always forget what we're doing when we try it. . . just can't keep focused.

Catherine said...

Yea for mom quitting smoking! Not an easy thing to do. Congratulations to her!

The Creek Cats said...

We are so very proud of your mommy. That is something very hard to do and she did it. That is wonderful!!!

The Kitty Krew said...

We bet you're both really happy about your mom stopping smoking, and we're very excited for her too! We know it's very tough, our Mommy's mom stopped last year and is happy to no longer be smoking (except for the weight she gained...we hope your mom won't have that problem).

We don't know if we'll be able to do the fetching event, that's not something we normally do so we don't think we have any photos or videos that would work! :(

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew

Concats to your mom for quitting smoking! She deserves a gold medal for that!

I think Ginger wants to be a spectator with you Samson. She is not an cathlete either.

Busby and Raymond said...

Concats to your Mom! Quitting smoking is NOT easy! But think of all the extra green papers she will have from not buying cigarettes. More money for treats!

Sammy and Andy said...

Samson, we'll be right there beside you in the spectating arena. YAY and kudos to your mom....our mamabug knows how difficult it had to have been for her. Mamabug quit finally about 3 years ago, after smoking since she was a teeny booper....she, too, had tried to quit many, many, many times. When she left Ireland in the spring of 07, she left her cigs behind and hasn't had even one puff since.....aren't our moms the greatest!!!!!!!!! xxxxxxxxxxx

meowmeowmans said...

Hooray for your mommy! And we're glad you never really got into smoking, Samson.

The Kool~Kittie~Krew said...

Kudos to your mommy!!! Our mommy AND daddy smoke! They tried a few times to stop, but it never happened. They talk a good game, but REALLY need to get their butts in gear and do it! "Beans have gears in their butts? Ewww.....

The Island Cats said...

We are so proud of your mom!! She's done a good thing...not only for you two, but for herself as well! Yaay!

Cindy said...

I'm so glad you quit. Good for Mom!

Lisa, Jack and Baby said...

Our mom quit smoking over 5 months ago too, and it happened the same way...she was just done with it. We are happy too! And, yes, that is some excellent spectating.

BeadedTail said...

Concatulations to your mommy for quitting smoking! We're sure that wasn't easy but it's wonderful that she'll be around for a really long time!

You are a furry handsome spectator Samson! We all fetch so would love to enter Deli's competition but sadly our mommy doesn't have one picture or video of us doing it. Pitiful huh.

Catline Crew said...

Congratulations to your Mom for quitting smoking.

Most times we don't fetch. We make our humans fetch.

ABBY said...

Mom said she can't think of anything at anytime that we've fetched, but she will look over her pictures...maybe her memory is just bad.

What are you doing? A cat-style Mexican Wave? No doubt cheering for your Mommy. What a great achievement.

Concats to your Mom, that is so awesome! Did she get very sleepy?
