Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: Boxes Make the World a Better Place

thankful thursday blog hop brian 03082018 - Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it! Hello everyone, it’s that time agan  and welcome to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Every Thursday we tell you about the things for which we are most thankful. You know we love doing this, and even better, we always love it when you join with us. I know, sometimes it can be really difficult, but the bright side of things is even brighter when we search for it and find it.

Can you guess what I’m thankful for today?  You got it, boxes.  As my post title says, boxes make the world a better place.  Honestly, I’ve never really met a box I didn’t like.  It doesn’t really matter if they are empty or not, if they’re not I’ll lay on top of it.  I’m very thankful that we have a variety of boxes at our place.

Think about how important boxes are to us.  Our food comes in boxes from Chewy.  Actually, this is one of the packing box tops that protects the big cans of feral food.  These happen to be one of my favorites, it’s just right.  A great big box protects our Christmas Tree while it’s in hibernation during the off season.  I never get to lay in that big box, but I sure do lay on it.  We get all kind of goodies from Amazon in very nice boxes too.  Oh, and boxes are fun to rip apart, just ask Brother Simon.  Every chance he gets he will rip a box apart with his teeth in no time.  Fortunately he doesn’t eat them, he just likes to destroy them.

What about you, do you like boxes too?  My pal Cody from Cat Chat with Caren and Cody said on Tuesday that boxes really weren’t his thing, but that’s okay.  I’ll gladly take any boxes he doesn’t want.

So what are you thankful for today?  Tell me in the comments and then join us for the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

I like most boxes, but not all. Don’t know why, but those Chewy boxes (any size) never really interest me.

Wow~ I never thought about it before but you are right! Boxes are important – and they do indeed protect the hibernating tree!

Oh yeah boxes are big here too and a bag of food in a box in another bag is heaven. Let’s hear it for ripping apart cardboard.

We do love boxes here… but my human has a BAD habit of tossing them in the recycling bin WAY too soon!

Angel Sammy was “into” boxes when he was little but outgrew them – he did enjoy sitting in a box that had a rope attached and being pulled around the house. HAHAHA I’m not a box guy either for some reason. Mom gets all excited when she finds a box SHE thinks I’ll like but I just walk on by. I guess Sammy and I just didn’t have the “box gene” !!!! LOL Happy Thursday and thank you for hosting the Hop Brian!

Love, Teddy

Boxes sure are grand. We try to tear a few up, sometimes we don’t succeed though.

We all love boxes around here. We take turns sitting in them but after awhile we do get tired of them but then a new box comes and we love that one too.
You all have a most wonderful day.

The great thing about boxes is that both cats and dogs love them! (Luke does like to eat them though). We wonder who invented boxes – they should be famous and get a holiday or something, don’t you think? 🙂

You look so content in your box. Our pups don’t have a special feeling for boxes. We use them to help start fires in our fireplace. If we lived near you, we’d give them to you! We are joining your blog hop. Thanks for hosting it!

My cats love every box that comes into our house, large or small. Enjoy your box.

I like a good box, and Mother will always leave one out for me once I claim it. They are just so comfy and wonderful.

Boxes and kitties do go together. Most kitties I know would rather have the box than whatever came in the box. You are most wise about boxes.

Have a purrfect day. My best to your dad. ☺

Boxes R US for sure. We felines can entertain ourselves for days with a box.

Now that is one purrfect box you have there, Brian! Around here, mancats Evan and Toby love them some boxes. They both love to snooze in them, and Toby also likes to shred them with his teeth. The girls here, Thimble and Eddy, they’re like Cody and don’t care one bit about boxes. Have a beautiful day in your box, Brian!

MOL!!! SOMETIMES I like boxes!!!!!! Wish you lived closer we have a TON we could give to you!! Wait til you see a really cool one that we are having a give-away for (hopefully within the month, April at the latest!)

It’s hard to imagine a cat who doesn’t like boxes. Mom has been collecting really big boxes to build us a fort on the upper deck as soon as the weather warms up. We are very excited about this. We are thankful for spring flowers today. Makes us think that warmer days are ahead.

You look quite content in that box, Brian. I love boxes, too – of any shape or size. I might be getting a new box soon (crossing my paws) and I will share mine if you’ll share yours. Hugs!

Oh my mouses, I can TOTALLY see why you’re thankful for boxes. I mean, they’re like THE BEST THING SINCE SLICED BREAD, only better, on account of us cats not eatin’ bread. MOUSES!

We know how much cats love their boxes. Well, Lightning thinks boxes are evil and won’t go near one, even if a big box does bring all our goodies from Chewy:)

Brian, it’s like this. I blow hot and I blow cold. I love love love some boxes and ignore others. I love the boxes our holiday ornaments are stored in most of all. I don’t destroy boxes but I love to chew the tape out them. Mostly Chewy boxes don’t hang around long enough.
