Thankful Thursday: The Kindness of Strangers

Merlin here!  Despite the fact that I have cancer, I am a very thankful Sphynx.  In addition to my wonderful family, I have a lot of people, many of whom I've never met, thinking about me, supporting me, purring for me, and praying for me.  Most of you, my blogging friends, I only know virtually, but you mean a lot to me and my family.

Here I am with a beautiful blanket that was made for me from one of those groups of people on the internet who care about me and are giving me all the purrs, prayers, and positive thoughts that they have.



 It's a fleece blanket, so of course I love it!


Dragonheart and Devi have also curled up under it, but it was made especially for me.  I like that it has a camouflage pattern on one side, so I can be like my dad!  The yellow on the other side is bright and cheery.


Thank you to the wonderful Fur Angel Blessing Blanketeers who provided me with this blanket.

Having so many virtual caring supporters is a tremendous help. It is always a good thing to know you are held in the heart of so many. THat was a great blankie!!!

We absolutely love that blankie! And you are so good to share it with Devi Toy Hog and Dragonheart.

And we know what you mean about the Virtual Family - the blogosphere is very powerful. For instance we knew about you guys before we even read your blog and Veikko and Seppo are now delighted to be able to read about the adventures of other Nekkids. And that keeps them out of my furs.

That is a lovely blankie. You are right about the support of blogging friends. When any of us are ill, the support helps our families to cope with the stress.

What a beautiful fleece blankie you have Merlin! I love it and I bet it keeps you nice and toasty warm. In the blogosphere there are no strangers....we are all friends....some we've met and some at yet to be met but we are all friends! AND - we all care about you. A lot.

Love, Sammy

Nothing warms the heart (and the body) like a a nice fleecy blankie! We know that naps are very important to helping you feel your best, too!

That was a sweet gift.

What a wonderful present. One you can really use.

We're sorry you're being abandoned for the weekend, but as you said it's for a good cause. They owe you extra treats, though.
