Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: New Visitors Are Fun

thankful thursday blog hop brian 07112019

Hello everyone, thanks for coming by for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am always so very thankful to each of you for joining us. I know I always say that, but I really am thankful for you. Each and every Thursday we share the things for which we are most thankful and we always enjoy reading all of the things you are thankful for too. If you’re new to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, thanks for hopping in, we do excited when new blogger pals join us!

Yes indeed, I really am thankful for new visitors, we love seeing you on our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. But there are other visitors we are thankful for too. I know I’ve told you many times how much fun we have seeing different critters show up in our yard. As long as they don’t bother our feral family we’re fine with visitors. We’ve had ducks, geese, turtles, snakes, raccoons, foxes, and even a coyote too, although the coyotes were not welcome at all, and of course an occasional loose doggy wondering by.

Well, we had a new visitor, and we had never seen anything like it the whole time I’ve been here…

I really couldn’t believe my eyes and I’m sure thankful that I was awake and looking out the front window at the time. I’m also thankful that the Mom got the photos because the others were snoozing and missed seeing her. She’s actually been here a couple of mornings.

So, what are you thankful for today? Tell us 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!

    You had a deer. I see them rarely at night by us. We also see raccoons, possum and foxes. Thankful for a cool house on a hot day outside.

    We don’t have deer close by, but lots of the other critters you mentioned. Today was a crazy day with lots that went wrong, i am thankful we got through it!

    We agree that it is fun to watch visitors.
    We get mostly birds, but also the raccoon,squirrels and sometimes the groundhog.
    We too have had some deer in the yard.They have only recently discovered our place and the hostas 😉

    That was nice to see a new visitor, and she doesn’t look like a “vishus deer”. We get quite a few in our fields, but we have to keep checking because they pull down the electric fence that keeps the horses where they should be when they jump over them.

    Brian dear furiend, that is one big visitor! I hope she doesn’t eat your garden and/or shrubs!

    Wow, you’ve got deer TV! We see deer from time to time but not that close!
    He is so cute. What a lovely visitor 🙂

    OH MY CATS Bambi came calling!! What a beautiful sight. Teddy had a bear in his yard and you have a deer.
    I hope the only tigers seen there are of the domesticated variety
    Hugs Cecilia

    Wow Brian – what a beautiful doe! I’d rather have seen one of those than the BEAR we had in our backyard a few days ago believe me! Thanks for hosting the Hop…………..!!

    Hugs, Teddy

    Deer are always welcomed visitors. When I was growing up we saw them often on our farm. They are most beautiful and ever so graceful.

    Thank you for hosting the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

    Have a purrfect Thankful Thursday. My best to your peeps. ♥

  12. The Poupounette Gang

    That is a wonderful new visitor! We have never seen any of those but #1 tells us there are some not too far away. We are thankful for our little red squirrels who come and eat sunflower seeds.

    Sometimes I see one of those wonderful creatures when walking through the woods, but I never came so close. I hope they don’t eat all the plants in your garden!

  15. The OP Pack

    Deer are such beautiful creatures. It makes Mom sad when she sees so many of them lying on the ground after trying to cross a busy street. We also love seeing their babies. We have had snakes, turtles, lots of bunnies, and a coyote or two around our yard lately too. And Misty even caught a lizard:)

    Um……those are definitely NOT new visitors in my yard. In fact, along with the gajillion squirrels, they pretty much decimated my stand of sweet corn……and we have an electric fence guarding it! Adorable to look at, destructive as all get out. I’m just thankful we got any corn to eat!

  17. Jeanna

    I had to laugh when I saw your visitor was a deer, a pretty common sight around here, on my street, in the driveway, sneaking up behind you when you’re unloading groceries from the car and helping themselves to bushes and tomato plants.
    I’m thankful to have seen a few choice critters this week, especially the turkeys who now seem to live on a very busy intersection and our neighborhood cranes who had been absent for awhile (I worry).
    I’m also thankful for warm and friendly bloggers like yourself and of course all the kitties and their daily adventures.

    What a treat for you to see. We don’t get deer this close to our suburb but I know they are amazing (I wish they would come and eat our grass until the mower is repaired!)

    I bounced off the deck a few weeks ago to see a mom and babe in the yard next door, and I do live in a subdivision. Around here, its due to tall the building, Nashville is the it City and growing so fast, these poor babes are being pushed out of their homes. Beautiful pics, mom did really well.

  20. Kitties Blue

    What a gorgeous visitor. You really were lucky to see her, Brian. When Mom wrote our post, we were thankful that Sawyer had recovered from last Friday’s seizure and had not had one since. Now our thankful is that the seizure he had today stopped spontaneously so that he didn’t suffer heatstroke. Unfortunately, he did cut his nose. Life is a rollercoaster at our house.

    Whoa! I saw—or I should say my peeps saw some of those at the family upstate’s yard. I dunno why they’re called vishus deer cos they look very gentle.

  22. Angel Foley Monster, Pocket and River Song

    Oh my gosh. Seeing a deer is good luck, as long as they don’t eat your garden

  23. Jan K

    What a beautiful visitor! We love to see them in our yard, but we have to see them before Luke, because he will bark at them! 🙂
