Fighting for ferals in NW NJ!
There has just been too much loss and too much pain for so many TCS members recently, I thought we could use a little focus on happy!

Today it was that Chum had a great dental! And he was SO HAPPY to be home and let us know it with head bumps and purrs!


Spring is popping - it is that beautiful light green outside! The sun is shining, the weather - at 72 degrees (22 C) is PERFECT!

And we have the CUTEST baby groundhog (growing rapidly!) that thinks he's a cat - he hangs out with them, suns himself on our picnic table... he even tried eating kibble - but decided he likes the dandelion greens better.

What makes me happy is the bright sun and the green grass, seeing my friends, or drawing and going outside. Since the weather has been beautiful where I am the past few days. (:

Yes, we needed this thread and thanks for thinking of starting it. Let's see.........

What makes me happy! YOU
for starters


Pipsqueak
has a very funny personality and everyday he does something to make me laugh and this makes me so happy. Every morning, when I get out of bed, he runs to the end of the bed as I walk past to go to the bathroom. He takes his paw and bats me and tries to stop me in my tracks by running along the end of the bed as I walk by. I stop, and he reaches up and wraps his arms around my neck and gives me kisses and head bumps!!!!!

Of course, my other cats antics make me happy each day too.
.

Taking my dogs to Petsmart to shop, they are like kids in a candy store in that place.

Bike riding makes me feel great and happy. Especially now with all of the flowers coming up, all of the green grass, even those dandelions
, UH and I love the flowering trees, just wish they would last longer.

Spending time with Larry makes me happy too (when he behaves
), yep, even after twenty five years of marriage


And, talking on the phone with my sister, unless we have to discuss mother, then it just wears the both of us out


OH, and Swedish Pancakes on Sunday mornings
with blueberries, rasberries and strawberries and lots of syrup.

My kitties ALWAYS make me happy!


Fostering makes me happy. Knowing that Portia had 4 beautiful, healthy kittens, and knowing that Persi's kittens are all healthy and all have homes waiting for them. Giving these guys a chance at life makes me happier than anything.

The fact that even though I broke a tooth yesterday, I was able to have it fixed today and completely covered by insurance makes me happy.


I am also happy because I have the most amazing, thoughtful, SWEETEST boyfriend in the entire world and things are going really well for us in general right now.

Monet makes me happy


but aside from the cat, the fact I am getting out a normal hours from work makes me happy! 4 months of working 10-13 hour days was a killer!!

In the kitchen
Being with my DH and our furkids, not really doing anything, just being together

Being outside, whether it's working in the gardens or walking

Cooking or baking....I'm probably happiest when I'm working in my kitchen, trying out a new recipe or making an old family favorite

Summertime!!! Picnics! Parties!

We have great weather here, sunny and warm.


I witnessed a successful mating between Kuura and Luna last night! May sound weird thing to be happy about, but when I earlier tried to mate them, Kuura was too shy to do anything when I was around, probably because Luna is part of our family too.. so no kittens then, but now it really looks and sounds 'promising'.


Visited mom and grandma yesterday and there was no fighting between me and mom. Yay.
