Thankful Thursday

Lita in her heated bed.Hi everyone, it's Lita today.

First, I want to thank everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday on Sunday either here or on Facebook.  It was a good day. 

A week ago, the fire alarm went off here in our building.  The fire alarm hardly ever goes off here (unlike in our old building where it went off at least once a month), so the Mom and D scooped me and the orange one up and put us in our carriers and headed out.  

The Mom lost her concentration going down the stairs and ended up falling down a few of them.  She landed on the floor hard.  She is hoping she just sprained her left foot - it is the same foot she had to have surgery on to sew up ligaments and a tendon in 2010.  She also hurt her right knee.  

She was carrying the orange one when she fell, but he is okay.  D grabbed the orange one, and the Mom hobbled out of the building.  She said if nobody were there, she would have pushed the orange one's carrier and crawled out, MOL.  

Thankfully, the fire was a small kitchen fire and everybody and everything is fine.  That is what is most important!

The Mom's next door neighbor is a very nice older man who likes to help people in the building out whenever he can.  The Mom happened to run into him while hobbling to get her mail later that day, and the man helped her carry my new litter box upstairs, got her some ice for her foot, brought her popsicles, and went and got her an ace bandage from the store since she could barely walk.  

The Mom is still hurting quite a bit, but she says her knee is looking better - even though she still yells every time she bends or straightens it.  She is thankful that she did not get hurt worse and so am I.

Yes, you read right - the Mom got me a new litter box.  It has a three-inch opening at one end so it is not as hard for me to climb in and out of it.  The Mom takes very good care of little old me! 

We have a lot to be thankful for this week.  What are you thankful for today?
