  1. What a wonderful way to start the holiday: visiting Crooked Acres! Happy Thanksgiving to all!

  2. I am thankful I have fun journals to read each morning, like yours. Happy Thanksgiving to you and Fred and all the animals.

  3. Happy Thanksgiving! As much as I love the kitties at Crooked Acres, today I am thankful to not be in your kitchen while the swarm of 13 permanents and 7 fosters wait impatiently for their turkey to come out of the oven (at least, that’s how I am imagining it). After Norman tried to eat a pumpkin pie last night, I am also thankful that we are having dinner with the in-laws.

    • Ha – I imagine that the only permanent resident who’ll be around will be Miz Poo. The rest of them tend to run and hide when visitors come over! The Weeds girls will be right in the thick of it, though. 🙂

  4. Happy Thanksgiving to you all at the Acres!

    Wow, that Kohle is one handsome Man-Cat. And I never noticed before what beautiful brown eyes Petey has!

  5. I am thankful that I found this blog and for all the wonderful work you do, Robyn. I’m thankful for all the work that rescues, volunteers, and fosters do. I’m thankful for all furry animals. Happy Thanksgiving to all! Faith, Family, Friends, Four-legged furballs, and Fodka… the 5 F’s of Life!

    • “Bitters” is an awesome name for a cat! I’ve told Fred that next time we have two boy fosters, we need to name them Bitters and Butters. 🙂

  6. love your blog. Thank you for it. And, if you’re planning themes — have you ever done an all-orange-cat theme? I am currently without one and love their scheming, clowning, electric personalities…

  7. Happy Thanksgiving Robyn, Fred, cats, kittens, chickens, dogs, ducks, bugs, fellow readers and non-Brown Recluse spiders!!!

    Way up there on my Thanksgiving list is this blog with its always wonderful photos, funny captions and enlightening comments. Also, I’m grateful that Challenger House and other organizations rescue cats and kittens who otherwise would be killed or have miserable short lives!

    Thanks for everything you do, Robyn!

  8. Robyn-we are thankful for you and all your animal friends at Crooked Acres. Happy Thanksgiving!

  9. Happy Thanksgiving. And another thanks for the awesome site and all the work and money you guys put in saving/raising cats.

  10. Happy Thanksgiving to you and Fred and all your special kids…your purrfect permanent residents and your purrfect little fosters. My husband and I are both especially thankful for our fur babies…present and past!

  11. I am thankful for everything at Crooked Acres and to all the people like Robyn who devote so much to our furry friends. Thankful indeed.

  12. Happy Thanksgiving to you, Fred and the rest of your little family at Crooked Acres! (I’m thankful you write everyday!) 😀

  13. Happy Thanksgiving y’all! And I too am thankful for this site and all the
    love you give these kitties!

    Hummm…have you ever thought about adding a turkey to the flock? 😉

  14. Happy Thanksgiving to everybody human, furry, feathery and scaly at Crooked Acres couldn’t forget the fish, although they probably don’t care!). Add me to the list of people thankful for you and your wonderful pictures. I love the toeses, and the bitey brats. Please give skinny old man Spanky a Thanksgiving hug from me. Also all the other perms.
