Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: When What Is In the Box Is a Blast

Hello everyone, it’s time again for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Each and every Thursday we tell everyone about the things for which we are most thankful. We’re are always thrilled when you join us for our blog hop and we love to see our new blogger pals hopping by too. Your thankfuls always make us smile!

Today I’m thankful that Sister Zoe is healing up from her teeth extractions.  I’d even be more thankful is Brother Simon and Sister Seal weren’t scared to death of the cone she is wearing.  They hide whenever the see her, sigh.

But I know you are ready to see what happened when the Dad put together the thing in the big box, so here we go!

thankful thursday blog hop brian 01 04262018 - Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!I know we told y’all what we won, but here it is, one incredible cat tree, a big, incredible one!  So how big is this sucker?  Let me show you.

thankful thursday blog hop tree 02 04262018 - Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!The tree pretty much goes almost to the ceiling and there are leaves everywhere. The leaves aren’t real, I know because I tried to taste them but they didn’t have a whole lot of flavor.

Can you guess who was the first one in the tree?

thankful thursday blog hop tree 02 04262018 - Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!Sister Seal was the very first one to check out the tree, she sure did enjoy exploring it too.

thankful thursday blog hop zoe 04 04262018 - Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!This was before her dental surgery, but Sister Zoe, even though she didn’t feel good, wasted no time in checking it out.

thankful thursday blog hop dolly 05 04262018 - Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!Sister Dolly immediately claimed the top spot as her own private jungle and has fun trying to hide in the leaves.

thankful thursday blog hop gracie 06 04262018 Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!Sister Gracie can’t climb but that sure didn’t stop her from claiming the bottom spot as her favorite comfy space.

thankful thursday blog hop simon 08 04262018 - Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!Brother Simon is afraid of most anything new but he finally decided the new tree wasn’t going to eat him.

thankful thursday blog hop dolly seal 07 04262018 - Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!Sister Seal is trying to convince Sister Dolly to let her have the top jungle. I think she will have to wait a bit longer.

I hope you enjoyed the photos.  We are all very thankful for the wonderful new cat tree and to The Conscious Cat for the most awesome giveaway.  What are you thankful for today?  Tell me in the comments and then join us for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

Brian, I love that tree and I’m glad everyone is enjoying it. That top is a camouflage place for hiding from meds. It certainly does look real.

Oh, what a great cat tree! It looks like you’re all enjoying it. 🙂

We, too, are thankful that Sister Zoe’s healing up nicely!

Big hugs!

Good going Sister Seal at being the first one up the cat tree. I’m not that brave and change scares the cwap outta me.

Sister Zoe I’m hoping your pain is not too bad from the teeth extractions. I’ve had teeth pulled too and its no joke. Cwap I sound like an old fart! You know Ellen of 15 and Meowing is the Tooth Fairy…she will send you a toy to play with while you’re mending.

Good news on sister Zoe, kitties. We’re so happy that she is healing up already <3 I hope sister Seal and brother Simon get used to the….walking lampshade 😀 That's a pawsome tree you have there. I think when I still could climb, I would love to climb in that one too. Have I already said that you all look very cute in it too? Pawkisses for a very Happy Thankful Thursday and Extra Healing Pawkisses for sister Zoe for a speedy recovery ❤❤❤

I hope that Zoe is soon feeling much better after her dental, and that Seal and Simon stop being scared of her cone.

That is a pawesome cat tree, it looks like a REAL TREE!!! We are so happy that you have it to enjoy, and that everyone seems to have found a spot on it for their very own.

Healing Purrs and POTP for Sister Zoe, we hope she is feeling much better after having two teeth extracted and that she doesn’t have to wear the cone much longer. We are sorry Seal and Simon are afraid of it.

Poor Sister Zoe and her cone….hopefully she can get rid of that soon and enjoy that amazing cat tree again! Looks like everyone else is claiming their spot though and it’s one heck of a gorgeous tree that’s for sure – especially with the kitty decorations on every level ! LOL

Once you have this cat tree there is no going back to the crappy ones. Cody still LOVES his! Good job putting it together too! So glad Sister Zoe is feeling better!

What a fabulous cat tree you all have now, Brian. It really looks like a jungle. I’m sure you’ll have lots of fun playing in it.
Maybe it won’t take Simon and Seal long to get accustomed to Zoe’s cone, but I hope she won’t have to wear it for too long.

Wow, that’s a fantastic tree. It’s cool that there are hidey spots among the leaves.
I’m surprised Sister Zoe has to wear a cone when she had teeth pulled. Are they afraid she will paw at her mouth?

6 years ago

My favorite part is how wide all of your eyes are!!! Sister Dolly’s are amazing!

I am thankful that you are all so happy! What a gift. And, I’m SO happy that Sister Zoe is healing.

Absolutely PAWSOME! TBT says he thinks he sees how ta build us one. But it is far down his “TO DO list”. Seeds and weeding first, new cat platform after. Well, yeah, we have 3 as it is.

That looks like a great place for kitties!

Have Brother Simon and Sister Seal ever seen a cone before? If they haven’t that is probably why they are afraid of it.
