Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: Good Health Is a Wonderful Thing

thankful thursday blog hop brian 01252018Hello everyone and welcome to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. You probably know why we are here, but if you are new then you will quickly find out that every Thursday we share things for which we are most thankful. We would love to hear what you are thankful for this week too. Sometimes it seems difficult if there is stress or bad fortune in our lives, but there is always a reason to be thankful, so make sure you look for it.

Today I’m thankful for good health, even though some of us have our challenges, me included. I’ve fought the pesky UTI problem for years but generally I’m doing darn good, the peeps see to it, even when I try to duck out of the medicine thing. Those peeps are purrsistant boogers, but I’m thankful they keep my health in check.

My sisters, for the most part, are doing good, some better than others. Sisters Seal, Zoe and Dolly seem to be doing good, and I’m thankful for that. Sister Gracie is having her challenges mostly due to issues with her weight and constipation and the peeps are constantly mindful of her needs. Sister Precious is stable and is doing pretty good even with her hyperthyroid condition. Our elder Sister Kit is having a tough go of it and the peeps are working on battling her diabetes situation along with her eye problem. I’m super thankful that everyone is holding their own at the moment. Brother Simon is doing good and is a total ball of energy.

Good health is a wonderful thing and we’re thankful for our well being, even with the challenges. Enjoy each day as a blessing. What are you thankful for today? Tell us in the comments and then please join us for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

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

Poor Kit, I wish her well and glad everyone else is well and stable. I’m thankful the winter is winding down and we’re getting nicer if not spotty weather. The better to take pictures in.

What a wonderful reminder, Brian! 🙂 <3
Carmine was off his eating for a few days, but he seems to be picking up again. I was afraid Lita's being sick was starting to make his pancreatitis flare, but I'm glad he seems to be doing a little better now.
We are going to join the hop here in a bit. We are thankful that Lita is still with us and I think she is thankful that her human mom is so darn stubborn! 🙂

Good health is something to always be grateful for! I’m grateful that at 17 and 16 respectively, Binga and Boodie are doing well!

It’s good that most of you are doing well and you have a devoted mom & dad to help keep you healthy. I hope they’re able to get Sister Kit’s diabetes under control. Some cats are easy to keep regulated, and some can be more of a challenge.

We are happy to hear that everyone is “holding their own”…..we will keep sending POTP though because a little “help” never EVER hurts. I know that our families do their best to keep us healthy which truly makes us VERY lucky because I think about all the animals who have nobody to look out for them and it’s sad as can be. Sending all of you a special HEALTH HUG………!!

Love, Teddy

Have you tried Miralax for Gracie? Our vets prescribed it for Chloe Jo, but I get it over-the-counter. I mix it with water and give it to her every morning with a feeding syringe. It is just a softener, and keeps her regular without being another drug. We have had major success with this. She has serious issues with digestion (and urinary, too). <3

That great report on all your health states is due in very large measure to the wonderful, loving, and caring parents you have, always making sure that you get the best of care. We hope you all see some improvement with Sister Kit.

Hello loved animals. We are glad you are being tenderly cared for and hope you improve in what ails you. Pureed pumpkin (no sugar) was recommended for constipation and other digestive issues to us and it seems to have helped a lot. Plus very tasty. If you haven’t tried it might give it a whirl. Quantity usually 1 tsp to 2 tsp per day, depending on your weight. Also hot compresses can help.

Brian, we couldn’t agree with you more. Around our house, our health has been a major concern but the mom is doing her best to take care of all of us. We’re glad you’re doing well and everyone else is doing well for the most part.
