One thing most people like to say thanks to is their family and friends, so why not extend the thanks to our furry friends as well? This is a really nice example (whether this photo is photoshopped not, who cares, right?) to remember and thank everyone who’s around you for being in your life!

This cat was ready for Halloween last month, and he can keep on wearing that outfit to enjoy Thanksgiving Day as well! Not that he’s too happy about it, but not all cats are photogenic, so we can blame the camera for that, right?

“Hi human, is this one mine?”

“You can have a piece of it, but not the whole thing! It’s for everyone...”

Okay, okay, I realize it’s not the same dog. Couldn’t miss out on the joke, though.

While making these photo collections I’ve grown to love hedgehogs! They’re such cute creatures,

I mean,

They’re never doing much, they’re just really simple, but that makes them just so cute somehow!

This parrot is so excited for Thanksgiving that he’s even started crafting! He’s good too, better than myself when I got started - maybe he saw this list and learned from other people’s mistakes?
