Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: When Old Is New Again

thankful thursday blog hop brian 08222019

Hello there everyone, thank you for stopping by for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am always so very thankful to each of you for joining us. 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 when old becomes new again. Y’all know what I mean kitties. A favorite toy goes missing, or a favorite toy gets hidden by the peeps, and then it shows up again. Hey, it’s just like having a new toy. It’s fun again, just like it was the first time. It’s not just toys, it’s happened here with beds and some scratchers too.

Today I’m thankful to have found my kicker stick, the big long one. Actually, truth be told, I didn’t find it. Brother Simon found it when he was digging around in the toy baskets and he happened to dump both toy baskets over. Low and behold, behind those toy baskets was my kicker stick. Brother Simon even dragged it out for me. Okay, okay, he actually brought it out for him to play with but he quickly recognized that it was mine. Smart boy.

So today I’m thankful to be reacquainted with my old pal kicker stick. 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!

Finding old stuff is like getting something new, i agree. Sometimes i find old things in the back of the cabinet that i’d forgotten i had, it’s like a treasure hunt.

My human says she is NOT thankful for finding an old toy of Boodie’s because she has been screaming at it in the middle of the night for the past couple of nights and waking up my human! She may, um, lose it again if this keeps up! MOL

Hello! Love the photo – toys that make an appearance after a long absence are like NEW TOYS all over again! I’m not much into toys but sometimes Mom digs around in the toy basket and finds something that intrigues me – for a minute or two anyway. Mostly today we’re thankful for your friendship and hosting of this Hop where everyone recognizes all they are thankful for. Happy Thursday!

Hugs, Teddy

Brian dear furiend, thank you for hosting this blog hop. I am thrilled to know that your kicker stick has been found. I don’t play with sticks a lot, but am very fond of soccer, so have a nice collection of balls… the small ones have an annoying tendency of getting under the stove and refrigerator.

What a precious photo of you today and your Tabby M is quite beautiful.
I used to ‘hide’ my daughter’s toys too when she was a wee girl…lo and behold she thought they were new.
BUT eventually she wised up to my scheme

I totally agree! Finding old stuff is definitely fun and new again. I just found a Spongebob mug that I thought I’d lost forever, but I found it in my trunk – 3 years later!(lol) What in the heck it was doing in there, I have no clue. Happy Thankful Thursday and Be An Angel Day. Hugs, RO

We always love it when our old toys become new ones again. We do the same thing with snoozy spots. All of a sudden old ones become appealing again.

Finding an old toy is like meeting an old friend who used to scratch your ears in all the right places.

My dog must think the same thing. When we find one of his toys under the couch he acts like it’s brand new.

When old is new again, it’s really fun! Recently Goro’s old favorite toy was rediscovered after hiding in a toy box. He got beyond excited! 🙂

I wonder if he could find Mudpie’s missing catnip snail. It disappeared for months and I finally found it at the foot of the basement stairs. It’s been gone again for close to a year MOL.

Oh yeah, we too subscribe to that notion. We also think the humans are the reason why our toys disappear.
