Thankful Thursday: B.O.D. Makes for a Happy Me


Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!

When Sister Kit came to live with us in January she was confined to the big bedroom in order to give her time to adjust to us, like we are difficult or something!  Anyways, that was a bit of a problem in that the big bedroom is attached to the big bathroom which is where the coveted brushing perch is located.  So, while Sister Kit was adjusting, the brushing perch was off limits.  Oh sure, we still had brushing available, but it just wasn’t the same and we had no big interest in brushing.

I am thankful that Sister Kit is now everywhere, and finally the real brushing has resumed.  Today I am most thankful for B.O.D., which is Brushing On Demand!  Seriously, it is wonderful!  As soon as Dad or Mom even think about heading that way I am hauling butt in to the brushing perch.  I love, love, love the brush and so does Sisters Dolly and Zoe.  I don’t actually know how many times I get brushed each day, so let’s just say it’s a bunch.  Do you know what makes me even happier?  Dad and Mom always stop what they are doing, or were about to do, just to accommodate the Brushing On Demand request.  I am so thankful not only for the brushing, but I am super thankful that Dad and Mom pay such wonderful attention to our needs.  A happy me they love to see!

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

That brushing spot sounds like a great idea. I perch on the arm of Dad’s chair if I want to be brushed, but I am very particular about which parts I will permit brushing on. You have such great attentive parents!

Oh you kitties just have that Mom and Dad totally wound around your paws. You sure knew what you were doing when you chose your family. What a super Mom and Dad to brush you when ever necessary. We are so glad that all of you have a fantastic home. Take care.

Oh Brian, I love to read your posts. Knowing about BOD just makes us happy here in my home. I get brushies but I haven’t asked for them. I WILL come when I see the brush or the comb when mom holds them up for me to see. I like both. But I haven’t yet asked for them. I think I will one day. xox

They stop whatever they are doing to make you happy? Isn’t that how it is always supposed to be with cats and humans? I know it is with me and Thunder.

What great parents you have! Nobody here wants BOD but Annie will tolerate it. Lucy loved it. I think it’s so nice that you get brushed whenever you want.

B.O.D. should be a requisite in every household!

You and me both, Brian. Ize luv a brush!! >^,.^<

Glad you are all integrated…nothing worse than segregating pets in the house, no one is really happy, especially cats since you want to be everywhere!

10 years ago

Brian, We can’t believe your happiness at getting brushed. Giulietta is the main kitty to get brushed here ’cause her extreme floofiness, and at three years old she is just warming up to it. If our humans did anything on demand from us, we’d fall over in a faint. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Misty May, Mauricio, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

Well, I wish your Mom and Dad would teach the Human about this BOD dealio. I’ve got the D part down, but the Human slacks on the B. How did you train them?

BOD is very sweet and something to be thankful for! We don’t care for brushing, unless its on our backs, but sides and tummies annoy us.

My girl kitty Annabelle would love to be brushed 24/7, but my two boy kitties only seem to tolerate it.
