Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: A Normal Game of Thrones

thankful thursday blog hop brian 01032019

It’s time for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, the first one of 2019, and here we are all ready to go. We know the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop will be successful because we all have so much to be thankful for each and every day. Of course we so look forward to your thankfuls and the new bloggers that hop by from time to time.

Today I’m most thankful that Santa brought me a new Scratcher Throne and I’m thankful that the others let me use it every once in a while. Oh, I still have my original Scratcher Throne too, it will probably be my favorite until it falls totally apart. I don’t know for sure, but I think Santa had a little help finding all of our cool Cat Scratchers this year. But for now the Game of Thrones continues here.

About that “normal” part, it’s all pretty much normal because our Christmas Tree went back upstairs to rest until next year. That means our living room looks normal again and there is more room for us to run, romp and play. Brother Simon is happy because he now has more space to leap when he’s chasing da Bird. He’s Super Simon, able to leap tall siblings in a single bound!

I sure hope your 2019 is a good one. So tell me, what are you thankful for today? Tell me in the 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!

That is one withering look, kitten. Who would dare dethrone you? I’m glad we finally got snow but already want it to melt because I’m not so good at negotiating the lumpy sidewalks. I’m also happy it was a quiet New Year’s Eve around here. I bet you guys love the tree going up as much as you love it coming down.

Hi Brian! So thankful you are still hosting the Hop in the new year. Our tree has disappeared from the library too and I must say as much as I loved lying under it – I love having all that space back! Have a HOPPY Thursday!

Do you have a dragon? We likes the dragons in Game of Thrones. We play musical beds here and we are thankful they are all so warm (electric blankets) and comfy.

The scratcher looks pretty awesome!
I’ve never seen anything like that before. I’ll have to see if I can find one for my 4 indoor cats. I’m sure they’d love it! 🙂

Don’t know if it’s the lighting, but the hair atop your head looks like Moe from the Three Stooges!

Well Brian, your expression should deter anyone thinking about removing you from the throne! Our tree is down and stored until next year as well. The room looks so naked!! All the best today and always.

My goodness, Brian, look at those “airplane ears”! Don’t the others let you use the new scratcher often enough?

Our tree is put away too, and now the living room looks a little empty. Maybe we should fill it up with thrones like yours!
