Blaze and Roxanne and Thankful Thursday


Thankful Thursday

Thankful today I can pray for my friend and her beauitful feline. This is Blaze. He is a sweet boy that lives with my friend Lorna.  He is her "Gentle Giant".He got out of the house several weeks ago and she is broken hearted. The first time she saw him she thought he was a ghost. But he came close to her twice and ran off. She has put up some humane traps but he has not be caught yet. She said yesterday she caught every cat in her neighborhood but him. Please pray that he will come home. He has been her boy since he was ten weeks old. Lorna is such a lover of cats. Oneday,  she would like to retire and have a Cat Sanctuary. She is so sad and broken over Blaze being gone. I hope you will pray for both of them that Blaze will come home and Lorna will be forever happy again. He is a snuggler so it is hard for her to understand why he decided to go out on an adventure. She says he likes to lay on her lap He also loves to lay in bed with her. Lorna says her other three cats are more demanding. When Blaze needs lap time he takes it, otherwise, he is on the outer edge watching.  Lorna works from home so when Blaze needed lap time he would gentlye tap her leg and look up at her with those beautiful green crossed eyes. She misses his snuggles and knows they had bonded so she feels like he is just calming his mind.  She needs him and loves him with all of her heart. Let's all pray they come together and she will be happy and he will get all the snuggles he needs.

This is a favorite quote about cats. I often stop and think of these very words whenever my big boy needs my full attention. Today he is probably bugging Daphne, searching for extra kibble bites.

Eight years ago this little angel was taken from us. She had suffered terribly from cancer and we did all we could do to keep her happy and make her comfortable. She passed so peacefully in Hannah's arms at home. Avery said he believes  she went to the Rainbow Bridge side of Heaven because she was alive one minute and gone the next and her little person was just an empty shell after her passing. It gave me great comfort to think of her in those terms

This silly boy became Roxanne's best friend. He always laid with her and knew how ill she was. He was a friend to her for all the months she was still with us. He cried so hard after her passing. I think sometime that is when he became more agressive and ornery. He was missing his favorite friend.

Roxanne was very stubborn and refused to go into the cold unless she was wearing her favorite fauz fur trimmed parka. She was a little sweetheart diva and probably could have been friends with Coco Chanel as she had a flair for fashion and a wardrobe to match.  Missing you little girl, you were Hannah's "Tiny Dancer". Always and forever in our hearts. Thankful we were given the opportunity to know you. 

I am going to post about praying for Blaze to come home at my other blog. I will post  as well about Rose and Bandit as Rose has been gone two years and Bandit three years. November is a month filled with loss for my phamily.

I will pray that sweet Blaze comes home. Has your friend passed around flyers in the neighborhood? Has she posted a reward? Money talks in these types of situations!!! Tell your friend to dig deep and come up with as much money as she can muster... $100, $200, even $500 if she can spare it. I guarantee you somebody will come up with Blaze for that kind of money.

Please keep us posted, Tata!

Prayers for Blaze to come home safely! Hopefully he is having fun frolicking in the fall weather, and will return home when he gets tired!

Prayers, prayers and more prayers that Blaze will come home safely to mom.

Our babies past and present are so precious. They do embed themselves in our hearts and remain there forever.

Have a blessed Thankful Thursday, Anne. Love and hugs. ♥

Praying Blaze will get tired of adventuring and come home and stay.

Blaze doesn't sound like a cat who doesn't want to come home. I will pray that he will make his way back where he belongs, Anne.
