Gratitude refers to feeling thankfulness and appreciation for people, places and events.
An attitude of gratitude can change your life.
As Willie Nelson once said, "When I started counting my blessings, my whole life turned around."
Research has shown that people who wrote down 5 things for which they were grateful during the week for a period of 10 weeks were 25% happier than persons who didn't do this small task. 
These people were also more optimistic about the future, felt better
about their lives and exercised more.

I don't know if there are any studies about grateful kitties but
I know that I am very thankful for many things:
-For finding my way to my home on Mosier Creek when I was lonely and only 6 months old 
-For the warm woodstove and my favorite box and my blanket on the old rocking chair
-For all of the beautiful Hawaiian slack key guitar and ukulele music that plays all day long for me
-For Tom's warm arm around me each morning

 -For tasty kitty food, fresh water in my dish every day...
and occasional treats
