Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: The Snow Is Almost All Gone

thankful thursday blog hop brian 01202022.png

Howdy gang, thanks once again for stopping by for 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!

If you can’t tell, I’m all snuggled up on Mom’s leg and I sure am comfy! Today on Thankful Thursday I’m thankful that just about all of the snow from our Winter Storm is gone, but we’re supposed to have some more this weekend.  It sure could have been a lot worse.  We had 7.5 inches of snow here, but the dreaded accumulation of ice that was supposed to bring down trees and power lines didn’t happen.  We did have lots of sleet thought, which is pretty dangerous too.

Most of our ferals survived the storm, but sadly I think we lost three of our most senior and valued ferals.  We haven’t seen them since right before the storm hit on Sunday morning.  We’re all pretty sad about that, they had been with us for a long, long time.  We still hold out hope that they might show up, but as each day goes by…well, you get it.

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!

    Me a legra por la nieve y espero que todos esten bien. Estoy agradecida porque termine de darle el tratamiento a mi perra Franchesca y espero que mejore. Te mando un beso

    It’s very sad when the oldest and most fragile of the ferals disappear. That’s why i hope Ms. G can convince her feral, who is getting very friendly and even snuck into the house to explore the kitchen today, will one day agree to come in and stay in. It’s so much better.

    You definitely look comfy and I bet Mom’s lap is warm, too! Glad the snow is going away for you. I bet you that your feral friends show up, they might just be hunkering down. Sometimes we don’t see Mario for awhile and then we turn around and boom, there he is and we are thankful to see him, that’s for sure! Enjoy your Thursday!

    While we are more used to winter weather where we live, our Winter has been strange.
    We had snow last weekend and it was cold!
    This week, we had cold and then rain then more cold!
    Today is starting out as rain, but will get colder as the day goes on.
    With this yoyo weather, I am happy to be an indoor cat!!
    Purrs, Julie

    Glad you didn’t get ice or more snow…..we were supposed to get a bunch more but looks like maybe only a couple more inches – Mom and Dad (especially Dad) are happy about that. I hope your senior ferals show up again…..We sadly lost our senior feral visitor last week but he went to the Bridge here so we were able to give him a nice garden spot where we’ll be able to visit him. He was a sweetheart. Thanks for hosting the thankful hop – we all really DO have lots to be thankful for.

    Hugs, Teddy

    That is great you avoided the ice storm. Snow is wonderful in our opinion, but we have no time for any ice storms they are bad for everyone and everything. We are super sad that 3 of your elderly ferals may not have survived. Living in the elements is so hard for cats and dogs. We have our paws crossed that those 3 suddenly pop up when the snow is gone.

  7. Katie Isabella

    This time, you got more snow than we did. Usually we march along neck and neck.

    I am really sad about the older ferals. They had shelter with you, but the snow was deep for their short little legs, to get through.

  8. MadSnapper

    .you look soooo good in your moms lap and happy also. yay for snow melt and yowsa on sleet. I have lived where sleet used to come and it was scary. sorry about your senior ferals, but keep in mind, us seniors, and I speak from almost 8 decades of life, it is sometimes better for us to go than stay.

    We understand how awful such conditions are, when it’s not a normal situation!
    Michigan is frigid with cold, but we aren’t experiencing much precipitation.
    Hopefully your missing outside cats will reappear; we are purring for them!

    Snuggling up on mom is always a good thing. You’re so handsome.

    I’m glad the storm wasn’t as bad as it could have been and it’s so sad that some of your senior feral kitties are nowhere to be found. I have my fingers and toes crossed that they show up.

    Thank you for hosting the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

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

    We surprised when folks more south and east of us got more of the wintry mix. We got about 2 inches of snow. There probably was some ice in there, too. We didn’t go out and I don’t recall if news reporters said anything about it. It sure has been nasty cold this week and like you, we’re expected colder weather for the next couple of days. I’m really tired of this stuff. I’m thankful to have a DH to keep me snuggly warm. My toes are always cold, so it’s nice to bury them under his leg while we’re sitting on the sofa and when we go to bed I huddle closely to him to steal all of his warmth. Well, not all of it. He seems to have plenty of heat to spare. 🙂 I’m sorry to hear about the senior kitties. Maybe, they found shelter and are curled up together to ride this mess out.

    Sad to hear you haven’t seen the older feral cats. Your humans are wonderful caring for the feral cats in your neighborhood. Weather people are now telling us no snow, but ice tonight and tomorrow. Hopefully, it won’t be as bad as they are predicting. Or if it is, there are now power outages. Nice that you have warm laps cuddle on.

  13. Diane

    We didn’t get as much snow as you – 1″ –weird I know but my son 32 miles away got 8″. Mom sure is lucky to have a handsome lap cap. Stay safe.

  14. Cat and DOG Chat With Caren

    you got 7.5 INCHES OF SNOW???? OMG!! It must have been a nightmare because you guys sure aren’t used to that! Do you believe we got ZERO??? Levi’s breeder in Ohio (only about 2 and a half hours away or so) got 22 inches!!!!! I hear there is bad weather coming your way this weekend. Be careful and stay safe and cozy!!

  16. Mary McNeil

    We are sorry about your ferals, We always woorry about out outdoor kitties too. We had more than a foot of snow here in NE Ohio, and more brutal cold is forecast.

  17. Create With Joy

    I’m so sorry to hear about the ferals… I hope the worst of your wintery weather is past.
    Hope you ad the rest of your human and feline family are doing well.
    Thank you for being a blessing to us all!

    Well, I am thankful that your dad and mom took care of and loved from a distant on those older ferals. I hope they do re show but if not, you know mom and dad took amazing care of them. My heart however is low at hearing the news. For our 4th snow of this Jan, we really got just a dusting. Sleet before hand and there is always that thought of lines breaking and having no power, but we did not have that. I however, failed to prop open the deck door so Chey could go out and when I got up this morn, I had to take pans of hot water out and throw it through the screen so I could get that door open. It worked fine but it could have become an issue depending on just how much ice was on the other side of that door. Chey, thank goodness did not have issues with the deck or steps.

    Brian, like us, you are enjoying a warm human. Very smart. Our eight inches of snow has melted very little, and our high tomorrow is supposed to be in the 20s. We are going to be praying that your elderly ferals are merely hunkered down and will return.

  20. Marvelous Marv

    We send healing purrs. Winter’s snow, ice and cold is so very cruel. Our ferals have made it through as they are taken care of. Thanks to the blogosphere we have discovered chicken heaters! Some racoons have taken over one of the places. Brian we are thankful for you guys and your wonderful blog! We hope you guys have a marvellously happy week.

  21. Foley Monster, Pocket and River Song

    We are sorry and will say a prayer for the missing ferals. When it is their time, and they go to the Bridge, they will forever be part of your pack.

  22. Cathy Keisha

    That is so sad about the ferals. I hope they didn’t take refuge in car engines and get driven away. We had one in our hood who luckily is OK. I hope they turn up and you don’t get much snow this time. It’s supposed to go out to sea before it hits us so we’re thankful for that.

  23. Mark's Mews

    We are sad for the elder ferals. But we all cross The Bridge sometime. Winter is hard, but it might have been their time annyway, ya know? Peace and freedom to them… They will finally romp in the fields of mousies and feel happy and healthy .

  24. A Green Ridge

    Hey Brian…jp here. I am so sorry to hear about not seeing the regular ferals during this brutal cold and sleet you’ve been having. The other morning, Katniss told me about little paw prints on both the deck and along our front walk. We haven’t seen them since, so we are hoping, the feline found refuge and is hunkered down warm and toasty.
    P.S. When I went to use Linky to hook up, there were pix of other bloggers…get rid of those because I don’t know how. But if you do know how, scoot me an email once you get off the couch and out from the blanket…jp

  25. Catscue

    That is a LOT of snow Brian! I’m glad you are staying warm and cozy. Ferals are a constant worry, we’re hoping those elder ones show up and are OK.

  26. The OP Pack

    That is so sad about the senior ferals. We hope that maybe they found a warm place to hide. Our snow is gone now too, but that is a lot for your area. We are still having bitter cold, but Mom braved the temps today and took each of us for a good walk. She says she needs it as much as we do:)
