Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: A Big Family Is a Happy Family

thankful thursday blog hop - Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!
Hello everyone and welcome to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Today I want to chat just a bit about family.  We all love our family and I love all of you, our extended family, too.  I always feel so bad for the many that will never know the love of a family.

Anywho, I almost got sidetracked there, sort of like Brother Simon does MOL!  I never really imagined when I came to live here as the brother to Ivan, and being the second cat, that I would be part of such a large kitty family.  No, I’m not making fun of some kitties weight, large in quantity is what I mean.

Nine of us at times seems like a bunch, but I do love all of my sisters and my silly little Brother Simon too.  Most of the time nine seems normal.  Oh, sure, we almost have to make a reservation to get the best kitty bed or Mom lap time, but all in all it works pretty orderly.  Sometimes the Mom and Dad seem overly busy with scooping, feeding and scooping some more.  But I have it on good authority that they wouldn’t have it any other way.  They love us all and we’re constantly thankful for that.

What are you thankful for today?  Tell me and then come on and hop along with the rest of us.  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Brian, your hoomins are kitty-crazy, and we love them! We love that they take photos of you all, and tell us the stories of your lives. We are birds-of-a-feather, so to speak (sorry, Trour Talkin’ Tabbies)!

I am thankful, every single day, that Thunder and I found each other at the cat shelter. I am doubly thankful that he got an A plus on his geriatric examination at the vet. I worried so that I made myself sick, but then I was so happy!!!

Bah. You guys obviously have some hierarchy issues. Or with the lack of it. Making reservations on the best spot, hahaha. I just threaten Tessa so that she’ll leave from wherever I want her to leave. /Kajsa

I bet you’re a good brofur to all your fursibs & I bet Simon looks up to you. Your humans must be in seventh heaven to be living with 9 kitties. I sometimes wish I wasn’t the only kitty in my household. I share it with a D-O-G (whispering), but that wasn’t my choice. Are there any of them at your house, too?

You are one big happy family! Our family is much smaller but I’m very thankful for it, too 🙂

You know, Brian, our house is much the same way. Mom says anything less than seven cats (now we are eight) and the house feels empty. And we too get all the attention and love we need and expect! Today we are thankful that the hots have gone away, and we pray they stay away! XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

Families are the best, no matter what the size!
Now we wonder about your litter boxes. They say you should have one for each cat, plus one. So do you actually have 10 boxes?? We would need a bigger house. MOL!

Agreed!!! While we don’t have as many cats as your household, we do have three species here (four if you include the humans) and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
