Thankful Thursday: Watching the Discovery of Others Is Fun

Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!
I remember when I first came to my forever home.  So many new things and so many new places to explore.  Explore I did too.  I was fortunate, I had the help of my Brother Angel Ivan.  He took me under his paw and showed me what was important and what was not.

Now it’s my turn.  I’m trying to do the same for my Brother Simon.  It’s not easy.  I think he has Attention Deficit Disorder, he gets distracted so easily and is off to explore who knows what.  Well, if I can ever keep his attention for longer than 2 seconds, I will gladly do my part and share the Mancat Wisdom with him.  One of those pearls of wisdom is patience, so I’ll keep things in check until he is ready.  Eventually Grasshopper with take the pebble from my hand.

I’m thankful that I get to watch the wonders of discovery with the newbies, it does rekindle many a memory.  What are you thankful for today?  Please join us for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

    I remember being as ADHD as Simon! Well, I kind of still can be that way, really. I’m thankful that doesn’t impact my ability to do all the cool things I do!

    That’s a wonderful thing to be thankful for Brian. You’re a generous soul.

    I am thankful that I have the means to help my dogs when they are sick. Like Shyla – she’s starting a new med on Thurs at 10AM. It’s a scary one but I’m getting up my courage to give her the pill.

    I am thankful Yin, Yang and Chimera came to live with us when I still felt well enough to teach them. It has been fun to watch Yang turn into a mancat. And it sure is entertaining to watch kittens scamper about, even when you are old and no longer fell like scampering with them.

  4. Angel Sammy and Teddy

    I’m having the same issues with our new boy in town Teddy – he’s a bundle of energy and can’t sit still for a minute before dashing around the house…..I find that the only time I can give him advice/show him the way is when he’s ASLEEP – since I’m an Angel I can whisper in his ear and tell him things that will serve him well in his life. It’s what big brothers do even if they aren’t there in person any longer to teach!

    Love, Angel Sammy

    You all made the Mom laugh out loud about Simon and his ADHD. Brian, just stick with him if you can. He is just having so much fun. You all have a great day.

    Brian, it’s just wonderful that you’re a kind and patient mentor for Simon, just like your brother Ivan was for you. Those young whippersnappers do get distracted easily, don’t they? This picture really conveys your wisdom and kindness.

    Brian, we totally understand the ADD, our new brofur Fudge aka the Ginger-Ninja has a goldfish memory. Fur instance he’ll climb the tree, get on the house roof and completely furget how he arrived there. Then spend the next 30 minutes meowing while the PA tries to coax him down! MOL But today we are thankful fur our new fursibs, Pandora & Fudge, they make an excellent addition to the Heathen Hoard!

    Brian, patience is a virtue! Maybe Simon needs a paw to the noggin sometimes? Only kidding…
    I am thankful to have a loving husband who freaks out when I walk too close (in his opinion) to the tree that fell on our garage, with electric wires sandwiched between. No power for 24 hours, but he heated a pan of water for me to wash up before work, and he’s holding down the fort while I’m away at work.

    You are very patient and great a great brother, Brian!
    Simon may have ADD but I’m sure you can let him learn many things 🙂

  11. Emma

    All youngsters of every species have short attention spans I think. Simon will mature fast enough. Enjoy his young enthusiasm 🙂

  12. Maggie

    We love you, Brian.
    We are very thankful that so many PAWS cats have found homes recently! That means we might have enough room when kitten season starts.

    Brian, you are a very wise dude, and we bet Simon will come to realize that soon enough. We think ALL kittens kind of have ADD. 😉

    We’re thankful for you and your family. And for cats getting adopted! 🙂
