Thankful Thursday Blog Hop:  Here a Scratcher, There a Scratcher

thankful thursday blog hop brian 02102022

Hello everyone, 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!

Today, I’m really thankful for some things you see all around our house and that’s our Scratchers.  The Scratchers are plentiful here, we’ve got 6 right here in the living room.  Scratchers are not only fun, they’re comfy and practical too.  We never lack for a place to scratch which means we have no need to mess with the furniture.

As you can see, I’m relaxing in the oval scratcher and I’ve got dibs on the rectangle one.  Both are mine, mine, mine, at least for the moment.  Oh, we’ve got 3 Scratchers in the dining room too and a few more upstairs.  I wonder why we don’t have any Scratchers in the big bedroom?  We did at one time have at least one in there.  Now I remember, I horked on it and it went away.  Dang!  

Our Dad does keep several extras in case of a Big Yak Attack.  We are all thankful for our Scratchers.  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!

A yak attack can really mess up a scratcher, Brian!
It’s good to read that you all have plenty, and more waiting in the wings.

Scratchers are most important, and my cats seem to like to have their Yak Attack on my left shoe.

You have a good selection of scratchers, Brian. Good to have your paw on the second scratcher so it is ready when you want to change over.

You all have a lot of wonderful scratchers available – Mom needs to get a couple for me. I don’t scratch on anything inside the house but love to scratch on the doormat at the front door AND any available tree!!!!!

Is a scratcher comfortable? My brain thinks it’s something rough but what do I know? Did you say, “Very little about kitties”? You’d be right about that for sure. It’s been so long since we’ve had a kitty and even then I didn’t know what a scratcher is but it would’ve been nice to have to keep our furbaby from damaging the curtains and furniture. Have a nice chillaxing day in your scratcher nap spot!

Brian, it looks like you are saying, I really like this scratcher but I might want to change to the other so everyone stay away from my 2nd choice scratcher. that is a LOT of scratchers and now we know why your furniture is safe and beautiul

You kitties do love your scratchers. With us pups the pawrents worry about us chewing something. We’ve heard stories of chair legs being eaten and Millie ate (or tore up) a book once so it’s chew toys that are scattered around the house. Mostly this behavior goes away when we get older.

Scratchers must be very important to kitties…I know Mama remembers how many she had for our Angel Kitty Sister Addie! Enjoy yours Brian!

Smart move to hold on to the other scratcher, Brian. It’s always good to have a second one at your paws.

We tried so many of those different kids of scratchers to no avail. Even coated them in catnip. So now I trim claws every 2-3 weeks and resort to double sided tape when necessary.

There are scratchers here but not as many as you have. None of my catkids sleep on them. They seem to prefer my bed, the sofa or chair, especially when I am using them.

Lucky you guys! All those cardboard scratchers must keep your peeps busy with the vacuum. TW remembers how much Autumn loved them. I love the upright sisal ones bests.

I have loads of scratchers here, and while there is always a first time, I’ve never thrown up on any of them.

Cardboard scratchers are the best. And our mom keeps extras too.
