Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: The Ferals Have An Improved Dining Experience

thankful thursday blog hop brian 02252021

Hello everybody, thanks for stopping by 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 that we’ve had a nice run of sunny and warm days and that the Dad was able to get outside and completely scrub and clean the feral feeding station. The Dad said it really needed it because it was yucky and smelly.

You might recall that we’ve had days and days of rain here and that means the yard was super wet and muddy. The sweet ferals can’t help but track the mud into their feeding station. So, when this happens day after day it gets to be a real mess. That with the bits of food that gets dropped in there helped the muddy mess to be a stinky mess.

The ferals seemed very pleased with their clean place to eat and that makes me very happy. We’d all do whatever we can to help them have a better life experience. They may be feral but they are loved as a part of our family. Unfortunately the rains are coming back tomorrow so their feeding station might need another scrubbing soon.

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!

    Aww, I’m so glad your human cleared out the ferals’ feeding station. It’s too bad you can’t put out a welcome mat and teach them to wipe their paws on it before entering. But you know, being cats and all… we just don’t do those things.

    My sister Mary always cared for the ferals and a few of them came into her life and really made her happy. My grandfather would try to humanely trap them but they got wise and moved along down the street where he lived. He wanted to help them find homes. He was such a wonderful man. My sis always said, Dylan, this beautiful gray cat with emerald green eyes was the first to the bowl and last to leave. He also never stopping rumaging through the trash can at night. He passed away from feline leukimia and it literally broke my sisters heart . She had a vet who made house calls and he always helped her with her cats that she saved from the clutches of evilness. I dd not think I knew anyone as kind as the two of them. 🙂 Now I know you and all the other kind hearts out there caring for these precious fur babies. Thank you.

    Brian it’s like you read the post by our Fanny Feral this week. She has a bit of a different eating arrangement but we sure love her too. We think she feels at home even if she doesn’t stop to chat. We are mighty thankful winter is ending and purr you all well wishes

    We are thankful that there are anthros like your dad who want the feral’s hotel and restaurant to be super clean and nice to be in. Thanks to your dad!!!

    I bet the ferals are happy to have a “freshened up” spot to enjoy their meals and take shelter…..that was wonderful of your Dad to do that! Thanks for hosting Thankfuls every week – it makes us REMEMBER how lucky we all are!!

    Hugs, Teddy

    Kitties love to have things neat and tidy, so I know they appreciate a clean feeding station. Spring usually means lots of mess and mud. Hopefully it won’t get to dirty in their dining area. They are so lucky to have you all to care for them.

    Brian,

    Your dad is very nice to do that messy job. I’m sure the feral kitties appreciate the hard work put in, too. It’s hard to keep things clean this time of year with the rain and soon the pollen. I guess the rain is a worse problem, though. I’m thankful there are kind people like your mom and dad who care for outdoors critters who don’t have an indoor retreat making life a little easier for them. I’m also thankful for others who care for elderly, vets, and the homeless. Sadly, sometimes a person can fall into all three categories. Thanks for hosting Thankful Thursday.

    I know the ferals are thankful your dad cleaned it up for them. and thankful they have a feeding station. my friend in Savannah Georgia, for many years fed ferals and did the feral program, putting out crates to capture, spay and return. she loveds those cats. her husband died and she had to move in with her son and his wife and she cried for leaving the cats. she asked the new owners to continue to feed them, the county provided the food, and she hopes they are doing it

    I know the ferals are thankful to have a place to eat and they like clean very much. You do such wonderful things for kitties.

    Thank you for hosting the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

    Have a purrfect Thankful Thursday. Scritches to all the kitties and my best to your peeps. ♥

    the ferals can’t verbally express their glee but we all who love felines know how very clean they are so I’m sure the ferals are very happy.
    I am thankful for dad’s devotion
    Hugs Cecilia

    Your family is well taken care of all around, that is absolutely wonderful! For folks who have never cared for a Feral group, the Ferals really do become part of the family – and a part of the family that you worry most about most of the time!

    Awww, I’m happy and thankful that your feral kitties get such good care! And what a nice sleepy picture of Brian today, showing off that beautiful sparkly tabby fur!

    I about a week’s time, went from -7F with 6 inches of snow to almost 70F! Needless to say, it’s looking like mud season. It’s so awesome you take care of the feral in your area. X

    I am so thankful that you sweeties in the house and the sweet feral in the yard have your dad! He seems like a really great man to care for all of you the way he does. AWESOME FOR DAD….
