Thankful Thursday: I Am Glad to Know That Perks Work + A Meowing Pirate Couple


Brian's Home.  Adopt cats, we deserve it!
Okay, I’ll admit it, we’re pretty fond of food around these parts.  Some of us are more fond of it that others, not that I’m mentioning any names.  We get our wet stinky goodness for breakfast and dinner and we have low calorie crunchies out during the day.

One of the things I’ve ignored, at least until now, is something called Perks, specifically Perks through  Ever since we’ve been on Twitter we’ve used Klout.  Klout is basically a site that tracks your influence on Twitter.  Anyways, I would get emails from Klout that told me I was eligible for a Perk.  A Perk?  Silly me, I thought it was a blog badge or something.  Nope, I was sure wrong about that one, a Klout Perk is real stuff. Who knew?  Probably everyone besides me!!!

How did I figure this out?  I didn’t, our Mom did.  A friend of hers was telling her about some of the cool things she got through Klout Perks.  When Mom came home she asked me if I had ever heard of Klout and did I know there was some cool stuff out there? Yikes! Boy did I feel silly.  So, the next time I got an email from Klout telling me I was eligible for a Perk, I went and claimed it immediately!

Our first Klout Perk arrived, and imagine our happy dance when it turned out to be food and treats!!!

We were quite thrilled to receive the the Bistro Box from Merrick Purrfect Bistro.  The presentation was so nice, complete with food, napkin, plate, serving fork and treats.

Hey, even Sister Zoe was impressed and she is just wee bit picky.  We got a can of chicken and a can of beef to try out…yep, yum it the word!  The ingredients are natural too.

So today, I’m quite thankful to learn that Perks work and that our very first Perk involved food!

I am also thankful to present the wonderful Pirate Couple of Sister Sascha and her handsome Mancat Dante as they celebrate Meow Like a Pirate Day!!!  Thanks Wendy!


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

Yes, Perks do work, though sometimes they don’t get it quite right…Gizmo was sent the Merrick cat food perk too. We kept the adorable bamboo plates, but gave the food to a friend’s cats to taste…She reported back that they loved it too…Perks can be fun

I’m on Klout too but never signed up for perks until Sparkle did her blog about the picnic. I sure hope I’m eligible. Although all that box and only 2 cans of food? Don’t like that. Time to get back aboard the Black Paw Pirate ship and see if TW spit shined the litter box.

For a while there I used klout a lot, but then I got tired of it and haven’t even logged in since last winter. Maybe I will get back into it in the winter and see how the perks are doing.

Our mom is definitely a twit but she doesn’t tweet. That is pawsome about those perk thingies, especially since you can get stuff for you kitties. And that is one fine pirate couple you have parading around your castle. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
