Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: Dreaming of Our Friends

      48 Comments on Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: Dreaming of Our Friends

Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it! I will fess up, this year hasn’t been overly easy for us in the pet blogging arena. We lost so many good friends this year and many were just unexpected.  So today I’m reflecting on my pals that have departed.  We will remember them each and every day.

So today I do have a reason to be thankful, believe it or not.  I’m extremely thankful for the new bloggers that have joined our community this year.  I’m thankful for each of you new bloggers that found us and we enjoy all of your blogs.  You’ve joined a community that comes together in a crisis, and we’re here to celebrate each of your milestones with you.  You may not realize it now, but you’ve come across a world filled with love and joy.  We’re thankful for that and thank you for your continued support of us and all that we do.

Don’t forget to spread the message of adoptions, they make the world a better place for all of us.  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

We love you guys, and yes, we advocate tirelessly 365 days a year for cats, because we believe EVERY cat and kitten deserves a loving, safe, forever home. Because they’re incredible. Because they’re the BEST.

Blogging has been tough on our hearts this year. I am so happy for our new friends like Brinley and Kinley Westie and Da Phenny. ♥ We will always miss the friends before them.

It is with sadness that we think about the pals we lost OTRB. They are forever in our hearts. However being Thankful brings out the beauty in our world, and eases the sadness. It is because of compassionate kind people like you Brian, that we can be thankful and know the earth is a better place because of people like you.

Brian, it is terribly sad when friends pass away, but you’re right about this community. It is so supportive, in both the good times and bad. Thank you for what you do to help animals get adopted and find their forever homes.

You are so right, Brian. So many have gone this year. But that is the way of the word. And sometimes, there are good surprises too. We are still smiling at the return of our old friends Dragonheart and Merlin to blogging after an absence of several years, and the same for Goldie and Banshee. We believe in CARPE DIEM. Each day is to be treasured for its friends and smiles.

Purrs,

It’s so true we have lost too many this year. It gives us all a sad.
But, we know the world keeps spinning.
We do hold hope that the love that is held for our RB friends will be shared with a new one and then that love will continue onward.

I’m thankful I found this community. I loved the Twitter Anipal community but they all either went OTRB or moved on. I’m thankful for you too.

We feel like a lot of our old blogging friends have dropped off (from posting) this year too, and those seem like a loss of a sort as well. So we are also thankful about the new friends we have made this year, and those that are out there who we haven’t even found yet! We are looking forward to more new friends we can find in 2017.

You said it better than I ever could, Brian. This year *has* been very very sad in our community. However, the community continues to thrive – with all of us watching out for each other. It’s so special. I do hope that we keep getting new bloggers joining us. Thanks for being our friend. We are thankful for that.

You are right, Brian, it has been another year of too many friends going to the Bridge. The blogging community is wonderful with all the support and comfort it gives. Me and my mum are thankful to have you and your family as our friends.

The losses this year–especially in the cat blogging space–have been so hard to bear. And I’ve had a few losses of my own this year that made writing about cat lives that much harder. But you’re right. The community we’ve formed is so kind and so caring and so helpful. The community inspires me. And the community picks me up when I am low. That’s a gift I will always be thankful for!

The pet blogging community is truly a unique place. A place full of caregivers. I have never been surrounded by so many generous, compassionate people until I found fellow pet bloggers. So much loss this year, but you are right, much to be thankful for.
