Thankful Thursday: Curiosity Troubles Are Not Always True

 

Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it

I know what you’re thinking.  Curiosity?  Didn’t that end badly for the cat?  Although sometimes that can be true, more often than not it isn’t true at all.  I’ll admit, I am curious too, but in my case, so far anyways, it has served me well.  I have made friends everywhere simply by being curious.  You see, if I visit a blog and I see a name in the comments that I don’t recognize, that gets my curiosity going.  I just have to go take a look and see who it is.  I might just meet a new friend, but if I wasn’t curious and didn’t go look, I might just miss one grand opportunity.  You may have had this happen to you, someone new leaves a comment on your blog but they left the blog address blank.  Who is that?  Do they have a blog?  Are they a blog reader just stopping by?  I almost always got to ask them, that is if they left an email address.  I have made some wonderfully terrific friends that way.

I have lots of kitty and woofie friends, rabbit friends, donkey friends, ferret friends, duck friends, bird friends, piggy friends, and human friends.  I was connected with lots of them simply because the I am curious.  I am thankful for that!!!  So next time you hear that old saying, remember, curiosity can sometimes be a good thing! 

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!  More Forever Homes More Often!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

We have found a lot of our friends by clicking on new people’s links when we see them in the comments section of the blogs we visit! In fact, I believe that’s how I found your blog, Brian! We enjoy making new friends and love to go look at new bloggies as well as visit our “old” great friends 🙂

Purrs,

You’re right about that Brian! Curiosity was how we met so many of our friends too! Sometimes we get comments from people without an email or blog address which makes us sad because we can’t go and say hi.

Sometimes, Cats Herd You

We are curious about commenters on other blogs, too, Brian!

Thank you for your kind words of condolence for Cousin Nellie. The purrs of the cat blogosphere have been a great comfort in this sad time.

Yep, that is how it works for us too. Hopping around to each blog zoo. Curiousity may have killed the cat but satisfaction brought it back.

Yes, I agree that curiosity is a good thing. I also admire your ability to make and keep all these friends. I don’t know how you can possibly comment on all your friends’ blogs every day, though. It would take up your entire day.

What’s your secret?

We will remember that all day, especially when Cocco curiously checks out the garbage 🙂

That is so very true Brian. We love to click on other comments and meet lots of kitties and doggies and peeps. It is really fun to do that.
Hope all of you have a great day and watch out for the ice tomorrow. Take care.

I know what you mean Brian. Sometime it is a good thing but sometime it’s not.

Oh Brian, you’re so wise!

We love that about you Brian….that you love all pets (& people) That’s how we found you some years back. We appreciate it so much that when a pet doesn’t have a blog & has a special contest or some special occasion, they can let you know & we’ve seen you put dozens of pets on your blog to make them feel special.

So true…that’s how we met you! Making new animals and animal lover friends is the best. They don’t get glassy-eyed when we go on-and-on about our fur kids. Purrs and hugs.

That has happened to me! And it bugs me soooo much! Because I want them to know I appreciate their comment, and the time they took to write it by visiting their blog at the least, and responding which I do anyways to anyone who takes the time to visit me, but how can I if they don’t leave their url anywhere. That is actually funny because I have seen you Brian a lot in bloggies I regularly visit and comment and it is that that made me come and check you and your lovely blog out! 🙂 Anyways nice… Read more »

It’s so cool to meet new bloggers and people and critters! You know, everyone always forgets the second half of that saying (except Pat Hatt above) Curiosity killed the cat, but satisfaction brought it back. And it’s very satisfying to meet new folks!

We do that too Brian. If someone we don’t know leaves a comment we go and visit them. Sometimes we can’t though because we haven’t signed up to google+ and if they have, we can’t always get to their blog.

We check out new names on our comments too. It is a way to meet other kitties. That is how we got to know each other in the first place.

Diane@BibliophilebytheSea

It pays to be a bit curious. I’m glad I met you and your sisters Brian. I always think I should have been a detective:)

That’s a good way to meet new furrends. We have so many furrends now we find it hard to visit them.
