Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: Playtime Is Still Fun

thankful thursday blog hop brian 08082019

Hello everyone, thanks for stopping by for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am always so very thankful to each of you for joining us, really! 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 are new to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, thanks for hopping in, we really do excited when new blogger pals join us!

Today I’m thankful for playtime, yes, playtime. As a senior kitty I’m not the most active one here, and I don’t always do a lot of playing, especially during the evening playtime sessions with the Dad. But sometimes I do join in and enjoy it just like the others. I’m really thankful that I still feel like playing some at age 11. It must be like food, it depends on what is on the menu MOL!

You might guess that most of us here like daBird (sorry about that da tabbies o trout towne), and that would include me. Strange as it might sound, one of our favorite toys is one that Sister Seal nicknamed Stubby. Stubby is what is left of a very worn out daBird. I don’t know what it is about Stubby but he gets by whiskers twitchin’ and my butt wigglin’ too. I’m also thankful that the Dad has a regularly scheduled playtime with us each and every evening, it’s something to look forward to fur sure.

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!

“Stubby,” that’s hilarious. The Little Rat has an arm from a gorilla that remains in his toy box. I love those Da Bird products, although Dexter adored the mouse. He’d even go rooting through my dresser drawers to find it.
Hi Brian, you are one handsome 11-year-old.

Playing is fun, when the mood strikes, Brian! Gracie still gets her play on once in a while, and she’s 19 years old! πŸ™‚

We have an old toy TBT calls “softie-mouse”. It used to be filled with Nip, but is is only a flat cloth bag these days. I (Ayla) carry it around every morning and “merf” while I do so. TBT knows he will find it on the bed blanket most mornings. He says it originally came in a box of Hartz Nip before even Skeeter was here (which makes it at least 30 years old.

TBT once mentioned thinking of opening it to refill it with Nip, and everyone said “don’t mess with success”, so he dint.

It’s a good thing you still love to play, Brian. Our Jackie doesn’t like to play with us humans, but she is outside a lot, so I think she plays there.

You know what Sister Seal? Da bird fell off the end of the string some time ago…and I LOVE the plain old string hanging down off the rod! It’s my fave toy! I didn’t;t like da Bird at all. Mom would just get it out periodically and re-try. Then…it fell off and that was where the good times started rolling!

Wow we like Da Bird at our house too Brian and I like pens! I used to steal them off Dads desk out of the cup and he would be missing every one. MOL. I like to grab them out of his pocket now and that is one of our games. Playtime is the best

Color me green with envy at your dad’s regularly scheduled playtimes, Brian! And 11 isn’t OLD…you are about the same age as myself, and I’ve got a lot of kick in my step.

I’ve never been much of a toy guy – I inherited a lot of great toys from Angel Sammy but I also have lots of new stuff and I rarely play with any of it. I do LOVE the red dot though – that’s my most favorite thing! I think the most impawtant thing is for us to have fun HOWEVER and WHEREVER we find it !

Love, Teddy

Awww Brian you are like Cody. We DO have a scheduled playtime (between 6 and 7pm) and some nights Cody is SUPER into it….other nights, he will play for a bit and then abruptly leave the room with me sitting there wiggling his toy all by myself looking like an idiot MOL!!!

Brian, I”m 14+ and until recently I was extremely playful. I’ve slowed down a lot this past year which alarms the peeps. I’m glad you still play. Autumn used to love da bird too when she was about your age.

Our oldest here (Harley) isn’t into playing much at all. He will occasionally run zoomies with Woodrow, but he isn’t interested in toys at all. Everyone else is pretty playful around here!
