It's the little things

Shy (a.k.a."Don't-touch-me!") Clyde finally let me pet him today:
His fur is so soft.  He felt amazing:
 I couldn't ask for anything more today.  :-)

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us on Critter Farm!

What a perfect Thanksgiving day blessing!

I've been away from all my critters for a week now, and can't wait to see them tomorrow night. I hear the weather back home has been rather nasty....

Happy Thanksgiving! Hope you all had a wonderful day, and by the look of the piccies, everyone is very laid back, tummies full, and above all happy.
Congrats on giving Clyde a pat! Love the photos of Honey and Clyde, they both look very contented :@

Ohhhhhhh, you got to pet him! Yeah!!! What a gift! I still haven't been able to pet my shyboy, Jerry. I keep thinking maybe one day! Today he let me within 3 feet of him... Maybe tomorrow.... Congrats on your breakthrough!

Clyde may have decided it was time in your friendship to allow such gestures of affection from you. :-)

Happy Thanksgiving to all your critters!

I love all of your sweet critters, as you know. I could spend endless hours with them!
Miss Kai Llama, however, is especially cute with her Mona Lisa smile and bedroom eyes.

Thank you for spending our little Thanksgiving with us. It always brightens our day when you guys are here, but it was especially good to have you around the table yesterday....

Enoch was a wonderful surprise dinner guest; he is such a sweet, BIG boy. He stole our hearts.

Awww! Congratulations, Danni. You know we're not surprised... it's only a matter of time before you win over any critter's heart. :)

That's such good news that Clyde let you pet him. He's such a handsome cat. Love the picture collage especially the one with Clyde and Honey. Take care and enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend. Blessings Mary

Clyde must have a bit of "Persian" in him with that beautiful fur coat he's sporting. I'm sure he's quite thankful for his loving mama! I hope your turkey day was fulfilling in many ways!

Happy Thanksgiving! Happy Autumn! We are grateful for you and your critters all year long ♥

Oh. My. Gawd! This makes me ridiculously happy.

What a special moment! That's great!

I hope you and yours had a terrific Thanksgiving.

I'm pretty sure I gained 84 pounds, but ours was lovely!
