Thursday Blog Hop: I Hear the Treat Bag

thankful thursday blog hop brian 05282020

Hello gang, thanks for stopping by for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop once again. You all know that I am always 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 get excited when new blogger pals join us!

I haven’t said this in a while, but here lately I’ve been pretty thankful for treats.  Even though I’ve had half of my teeth stolen by our Dental Vet, I can still manage to put a pretty good chomp on some treats.  Hey, I can’t let a little thing like the lack of teeth stop me from enjoying some yum.

We hadn’t had that many treats around here, mostly because nobody really liked them.  But when Simon came to live inside all that changed.  Let me tell you, that boy lives for treat time.  I think he can probably hear the treat bag crinkling before the Dad even picks it up.  So, I decided to give them a try, they’re the Greenie things.  Now I know that Dad has a treat dispensing schedule so I don’t even have to hear the bag crinkle, I’m just there on time waiting for the treats too.  I’m thankful I gave treats a chance!

What about you, 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!

Treats are wonderful! Our cats will rip open treat bags, even if they have to paw the cabinets open to get to them, so we buy the treats in containers.

Maybe we’ll have our mom and dad try giving us treats, too, Brian. We haven’t shown any interest in the past, but you’ve got us thinking!

Simon is a kitty after my own heart! My human called me a treat freak today.

Treats are a good thing to be thankful for. Mom is thankful LaundroMutt was open May 22nd so she could bath Fenris. And we are thankful for all our friends who are sending him reiki POTP and healing purrs. So far he has had an episode of being unable to walk on March 22, April 22 and now May 22 (in May the poor boy peed on himself hence the bath). We are also thankful they don’t last long and as soon as they are over he is back to being his wonderful self.

Brian, it’s good that you can nom your treats, teeth or no!

Sweetie tries to play bit me, and she only has four teeth, so it’s sorta funny but I try not to grin.

If that isn’t an expression that says, ‘Treats are coming!’, I don’t know what is! Enjoy your treat time handsome Brian.

Meowser Brian dear furiend, I’m always thankful for treats, too… Ditto for Katsu, but I’m NOT thankful for that v e t who keeps telling our chef that she needs to put us on a diet!!! So what if Katsu put on 2 pounds in the past 6 months?!? He is a growing boy!

Er, thank you for hosting this blog hop an apologies for meowing off on that revolting v e t …. Would you believe that Katsu adores her? There is just no accounting for some of his ideas.

I love my treats every night. In fact, I’ve been showing up for them earlier and earlier. My love the Greenies’ SmartBites but my real favorite is the lobster Temptations. Lobster! I have expensive tastes.

We love treats a LOT too, but we don’t seem to be getting as many lately. Lightning doesn’t get a lot of exercise because of his knees, and his weight has skyrocketed. Mom tries to slip an extra here and there to Timber:)

Ah, The Tribe thinks there’s nothing better than treats. The Female Human is always meowing about the fact that there is no treat that all four of us like but we see it as our sacred feline duty to be picky.

Poor baby, I’m sure the Dad gives you the best treats, boy. Oliver had a bunch pulled too and the vet recommended Greenies.

Sorry to be late to the party. You are absolutely adorable in this photo Brian. Treat time is every morning at 11 a.m., and Sawyer is always in the kitchen waiting. We all love treats, except for C.J. Mom is thankful for her new laptop, except she is not thrilled about having to learn a new photo-editing program.We are all super excited that Sawyer is currently 15 days seizure free.
