Thankful Thursday

This week Ninja’s Dad is in Nelson, BC. He is staying with furrends and they have a cat named Kanga. She is the same age as Ninja and the same size and colour as me. She is a furry thankful cat and when she heard from my human brother that I, Marvelous have a blog and that Brian’s Home has Thankful Thursday, she wanted to tell how thankful she is.


Hi, my name is Kanga and I want to tell you I am the most thankful cat in Nelson, BC!


Where I live in is a beautiful town in the middle of the mountains and I live in in a very nice neighborhood. We have trees and houses and views. There are great places to climb and catch mice and voles and moles.  The forest and the wild animals are a long ways away. I get to go outside and play.
When I was just about a year old, I dragged myself home, I was all covered in blood and my right back leg was gone!


My humans were scared and worried and rushed me to the vet! I don’t remember too much. I hurt and I was afraid! There was lots of rushing around, then I was given a needle and I slept for a long long time. When I woke up, I had tubes stuck in me and the vet has removed what was left of my leg and stitched me up. My people and my vet were worried I was not going to come home, but I fooled them!


I was back to my playful self and home much faster than anyone expected. I am so very thankful that my people got me to the vet very fast and that the vet got me all fixed up! I am the fastest 3 legged cat on the planet!

There is not anything that I can’t do! I just hop to it!


They don’t know exactly how I lost my leg, they think it must have been a racoon as there are no big or wild dogs or coyotes in my neighbourhood.

Cats…be very careful around raccoons…they are dangerous to us cats!

Thank you Brian for the opportunity to give my thanks and share my story!

Kanga! Thanks for telling your story to my human brother! Ninja sends a shout out to you Kanga, can you give his Dad a kiss from him?


AND all of us are thankful for you my furrends!

I love visiting you and when I love it when you visit me!

  1. Oh my! That’s quite a story. You know me. I think indoor cats should stay indoors and only go out on a leash. I’m sorry you lost your leg Kanga. It must have been extremely painful. Maybe a coyote got lost or something. I live in a completely urban area and we get coyotes every once in a while as well as raccoons, skunks, deer and other wildlife..

  5. Hiya Kanga, great to meet you!! It sounds like you had a bit of a lucky escape!!! The Staff says she’s been to Nelson cos her auntie lived there, she was a midwife in the hospital. It’s quite a place!! HiPaws, Austin xx


  6. Oh Kanga, you are such a beautiful gal and I’m sure thankful you were able to drag yourself home for help. You really do have lots of reasons to be thankful. Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!


  7. Hi Kanga! You are a very pretty girl. That is a very scary thing that happened to you, but I am very glad you were able to drag yourself home and that you survived.


  8. It’s nice to meet you, Kanga. Wow what a horrific thing to have happen to you. I’m glad it turned out okay though. You are a most beautiful lady cat.

    Have a purrfect Thankful Thursday. ♥

  10. Wish you could come for a visit, we could use some help with mice, moles, etc This time of the year when it gets cold, it becomes even more of problem, they want to come in. Hurray for you, you really do have a marvelous thankful story.


  11. Kanga, it does not surprise me at all that you recovered well and fast. Abigail, Mr. BA’s cat, recovered when she got her back leg caught in a tree (by the time they got to her, the leg had to be amputated). Our own Tripod SissyCat got in a fight with a dog, and lost a front leg, but she doesn’t let it stop her from doing whatever she wants or needs to do.


  12. Kanga, you are an inspiration! I’m glad your story has a happy ending and I’m glad you don’t let losing a leg keep you from being your playful self! Hugs.


  13. Oh Kanga…….what a tale – so very happy though that you have adjusted to losing your leg – sounds like you not only had an amazing vet but the perfect humans looking out for you after your accident. You’re one lucky kitty! Nice to meet you.

    Love, Teddy
