Reader Stories: Including Cats at Thanksgiving

By

In the U.S. we take time at Thanksgiving to give thanks for all the rich bounties life brings us. For many of us, our beloved cats, both past and present, play a significant role in these bounties. Please take this opportunity to share with other readers the way you will give thanks for your cats on this Thanksgiving day.
