thankful thursday blog hop brian 12242020

Hello everyone and welcome to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. 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!

Today I’m thankful for the magic of Christmas Eve and the joy that follows on Christmas Day. Maybe it’s because I just celebrated my Gotcha Day and getting my special forever home was certainly magical. I remember my first Christmas Eve and the anticipation of celebrating Christmas with my family.

I am so very thankful to be here on the blog, amongst our blogging buddies from all over the world. I’m thankful to each of you for helping me to become the Mancat that I am today. I think we could all use a little magic this year and we’d all be most thankful for that.

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!

I’m thankful that mom and dad are thankful for having found me to fill their forever home, and I’m also most thankful for all the friends and fellow bloggers I’ve met in here and who’ve been so kind in reading what dad and I have to say and sharing all your comments. Oh, and I’m sorry we missed your Gotcha Day, Brian, you big, hunky gorgeous mancat!

I’m thankful for much but at the moment I’m thankful to have a warm home. The weather is forecast to turn awful with temps dipping down to 19º tonight and the possibility of snow. I’m sure there won’t be any accumulation but those dangerously low temps are terrible. Saying a prayer for the hopeless who can’t find shelter indoors this night. I’m also thankful to you, your furblings, mom, & dad for being such good furriends to me in Blogosphere. Have a very Merry Christmas to each and everyone of you! 🎄
