Thankful Thursday: The Freaky Freezing Temps Have Thawed for a While

 

Brian's Home.  Adopt cats, we deserve it!
WeeeeeeeeeOoooooooo, let me tell you, for the South it has been darn cold. We’re not used to having temperatures in the single digits, nope, not used to that at all. The weather guessers down here said it has been 40 years since it has been that cold down here.  So today, we’re going to just be thankful for the warmness of double digit temps.

We are also very thankful that our two resident ferals made it though the freezing temps too.  The tabby always sleeps in the heated house.  The tortie doesn’t sleep in the house but she must know of some place warm, but she isn’t telling us exactly where that is. Hey, there are still a few leaves laying around and the ferals do like to lay in those and keep warm when the sun comes out.  There, I just gave you a hint about our T.G.I.F. for tomorrow, so do stop by and take a peek.

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone, and please join us in the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

I always worry about the strays and ferals when the weather dips precipitously like it has for so much of the U.S. I’m glad your two came through okay! Can’t wait for tomorrow’s post. 🙂

We’re glad to hear your ferals are all right. That really is something to be thankful for. We worry about feral and abandoned cats here in cold weather and can’t imagine how they make do further north where it’s really cold!

Sure glad your ferals are OK. I have one cat missing. Been gone for about 4 days now.
I am excited for tomorrow to see the pictures of the ferals I bet. Take care.

I am glad your temperatures are starting to rise again, and that your ferals are safe. Our wind and rain has eased too but is due to return on Sunday. We are enjoying the respite while it lasts.

We’re glad you and your siblings are indoor-only, Brian, and are also glad your ferals have made it through your cold snap. It’s still freezing here, but at minus 16 Celsius this morning, it felt balmy compared to the minus 35 or colder temps we’ve had.

Just goes to show that perspective is everything!

I’m glad everybody made it through the terrible weather! Those sub-zero temperatures we had here made us wish we were back in Key West.

Our temps went way below zero this week, and I was so worried about the short-haired barncats at our stables. At least they were out of the wind and were dry, but that didn’t keep them from crying about the cold. It tore my heart out. I was glad to see each one made it safely through the polar vortex. (The one long-haired cat was just fine. She was happy and playful that night.)

We’re not used to single digits up here either. We set record lows the other day. It was brutal. You’re looking nice and warm. Glad the ferals are safe. TW can finally go out to check on the Park Cats. 20 of the Pleasant Ave ferals were awaiting their neutering in a warm holding place.

It seems a little warmer here today too. Glad your ferals are doing OK. I spotted a black feral (maybe?) cat several weeks ago. I had also seen him in the summer. He makes himself pretty scarce though because I’ve only seen him twice.

We’re so thankful our pals to the south are okay and your ferals too. We’re used to the cold, but even this cold was too cold for us. M said she has cabin fever from being locked in the house.

We are so happy that your ferals are O.K. Our Mom was worried about feral kitties (and all outdoor animals) too. It was scary cold here. We are glad that it is starting to warm up everywhere. The sun was out here for awhile today. Everyone (human and fur) feels better when the sun is out! Hope you are getting some sunshine too! Love, Cali, Andy, Tater and Shelly (C.A.T.S)

We are sure that deep cold must have been very hard on those animals that aren’t used to it and have to be outside. But thank dogness for a warmup. It is getting warmer here but Mom says it is going to make for a muddy yard:(

What great news about the ferals. We are praying that this frigid air does not return! Mommy said when she saw all the wooly caterpillars in the fall that she knew we were in for trouble! Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Whew, glad it’s warming up down your way, Mr. Brian! We’re glad you and your fural furiends got through the colds okay! We used to have a fural kittycat who looked like you, and he enjoyed cuddling up under our back porch in a pile of leafys that was there. Mom always felt bad when she came out or drove in and startled him! Have a cozy day!

Luvs,

Jackie and Mom

We worry about the ferals too. Any wild creature, actually. They must know of places to go, but it doesn’t seem like there are any warm places out there when its so cold, and windy too.

Ditto on the single digit temps! We say ugh to them, winter is for the…well I doubt even the birds like it :/

Scylla, Socks, Tuiren & Fenris

We are so thankful it warmed up here too. Our heater died Wed night, probably from having to deal with the colder then usual weather. We didn’t even mind to much when the strange guy came fixed in Thursday afternoon. He only took 10 minutes thank cat cause he arrived right at our supper time and we can’t possibly eat with strange people in the house.

You kitties like it warm. Even cat bro Bert gave up on running away from home when that polar vortex was over our house!
