Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: Happy to Help Out with the Bonus Bites

thankful thursday blog hop brian 05172018 - Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!Welcome, welcome, welcome to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I do repeat myself sometimes, but I know all y’all know, each and every Thursday we tell everyone about the things for which we are most thankful. We all get excited when you join us for our blog hop and we love it when new blogger pals hop in too. Your thankfuls always make us smile!

Today I’m thankful that some of us get to help out with the bonus bites and we’re glad to do it.  What am I talking about?  Well, most of you know that Zoe has had a hard time after having two teeth cut out.  She just didn’t really want to eat.  The good news is that Sister Zoe is eating some on her own.  But of course, Sister Zoe insists on doing in on her own terms.

We have regularly scheduled meal times here.  We get an early breakfast, evening dinner and late night snack.  Oh, there’s wet food out throughout the day too.  Sister Zoe hasn’t been eating much at meal time but she has come out during the day, several times, and asked the Dad for something to eat.  Even though there is some food out she wants something else.  Hey, that’s okay.  The Dad pops the top on a new can and gives her a small to medium amount in a new bowl.  She has been eating it too, hooray!  However, I show up along with Sister Dolly and Sister Gracie and we want some in a new bowl too.  Yes, of course, the Dad servers us up some too.

Today we’re thankful to help out Sister Zoe by showing her we will eat right along with her.  Purrhaps if she sees us enjoying the bonus bites she will keep enjoying hers too.  Hey, so far it’s working and we’re all thankful for that.

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

We are thankful for this message of sister Zoe eating on her own, Brian and also will continue the Healing Pawkisses and purrayers 🙂 I think she also likes to be fed by your Dad for that little extra attention…I know I would 😉 Extra Happy Pawkisses for a wonderful day to all of you <3 <3 <3

Wonderful news to learn that Sister Zoe is eating on her own – SOMETHING is better than nothing and maybe with each new day she will feel more like eating regularly as she recovers. She knows she can ask her Dad for food when she FEELS like eating even if it’s not at a regular time and he will give her something. We will continue to send purrs and prayers for her. Thank you for hosting THANKFUL THURSDAY – we’ll be SUPER thankful when you tell us Zoe is back 100%

Love, Teddy

We are glad that Zoe has started to eat, and hope she will be back to her usual appetite soon. Of course, now that she is used to extra special care and feeding, she may decide she does not want to give that up!

Looking good, Brian!

Great to eat those bonus bites with her indeed. Hopefully she keeps on the upswing and eats away.

Purrseidon here. Brian, thank you for hosting this blog hop. I shall continue my purrayers for dear Zoe, and am pleased to know she is recovering. BTW, has your staff tried pate for her? That was the only thing Mr. M could manage his last few months… I am not suggesting that dear Zoe is getting ready for the rainbow – teeth issues and throat cancer are totally different issues – I bring up the pate because both of our siblings have trouble eating.
Have a purrfect day, Brian. Purrseidon >^.^<

We will keep the purrayers and POTP coming for Sister Zoe. Having somebody else around who is interested in the same food often perks up an appetite.

She’s lucky to have such generous siblings, lol. You hang in there Zoe and keep getting those unscheduled can meals, girl.
I’m thankful for all the things I keep finding by keeping up the spring cleaning and for a lovely bedding sale to bring more stuff back in.

We are happy to read that Zoe is eating more. We’d be very thankful if Mom would feed us more times each day. Just a thought. ☺

6 years ago

I hope Zoe continues to eat more and improve! I think it is great that everyone gets a little extra too. At our house, when one dog needs medicine, we put it in peanut butter and we give the other two a taste of peanut butter as well. It just seems easier that way.

Brian, your dad is so nice to include others in Zoe’s special eats. Here, our mom tries to figure out what Caroline might like, but we hardly get some of it. We do try our best to pester her to comply but so far no go! (Well, Elliott might get some but only because he’s such a skinny boy and could use it.)

I’m glad that you’re helping Sister Zoe with h bonus bites. We are sending her POTP. Keep eating Sister Zoe.
