Thankful Thursday Blog Hop:  To the Vet and Back

thankful thursday blog hop brian 02242022

Howdy gang, thanks 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 super thankful that we made it to the Vet place and back home safely.  Yes, I’m really thankful for that. Of course I never like the car ride but today it was pretty horrible.  It rained about as hard as it could rain, even the windshield wipers could hardly keep up.  The Dad had the radio on to listen to the traffic reports but it was raining so hard he could hardly hear the radio.  There were wrecks everywhere.  Yep, I’m thankful we made it there and back fur sure!

Oh, last night I was a fast night.  Well, I’m pretty fast for my age but I was told that meant no food.  Well, that part wasn’t that much fun.  I did get to sleep in the big bedroom with the door closed.  Dolly, Simon and Seal were out in the other parts of the house, and they had food.

One last thing, we haven’t got the results of Seal’s bloodwork yet and mine should be back tomorrow or Friday.  We’ll let you know what both results are when we get them.

Okay, that’s it for me, 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 hope things go OK Brian, and Seal, hoope you are OK too.

I know that kind of rain too, scary and nightmarish to drive it so well done and kudos to your dad for being such a hero.

I hope everything goes well. It is hard having to fast, darn it when the others were enjoying a meal. But once it is all over you can have your meals. YAY! Take care, you are the biggest bunch of kind hearts I know here. THANK YOU

Hope EVERYTHING come back OKAY tomorrow, Brian.


Yikes, that would have been a scary trip for sure. Glad your Dad is a safe driver and got you there and back.

Hope the labs come back with a good report for you and for Seal, too.

I hope you both get good results. That fasting is not good Brian. I had to do the same before my CT scan on Tuesday. I don’t get my results until next Wednesday though. *Fingers crossed* for both of us!

Oh, you kitties we are SO thankful for YOU and for your wonderful papa who takes such good care of you and who makes us all happy every week with the HOP of HOPS. We send good thoughts for good vet reports, altough we dont like to use that word often, vet, I mean. And yes, I have to go a jeun, without FOOD….arggggh. Even when I returned home I wasn’t very hungry but today was normal. Such trauma.

It must have been a nightmare for your Dad driving in weather like that with PURRecious cargo on board. I’m happy that you’re safe at home and will be able to eat something soon.

Hope the blood work for you both shows no BAD results Brian……….take it easy – going to the vet takes a lot out of us (and not just our blood!).

Hugs, Teddy

Fasting is no fun and neither are pounding rain car rides. My paws are crossed for good results for you and Seal, Brian.

Driving in heavy rain is no fun. It’s almost as bad as driving in a winter snow/ice storm. Glad you made it safely and we sure hope everyone’s blood comes back boring with nothing wrong.

Xena: Ooo, those kind of rain car rides are really scary. I do OK riding in my kennel in the back seat, though. I curl up on my blanket, snuggle with my favorite stuffie and dream about happy things.
Chia: We all have a “fast” night ever Sunday. We hate it. There’s nothing “fast” about it. The whole night goes s-l-o-w. We occupy ourselves bugging Mom all night. XOXOX

Yes, it was raining pretty darn hard in our neck of the woods the other day! I’m thankful, too, that you all made it to the vet and back home safely! I refuse to drive in rain like that, especially now that I’m a bit older and my reflexes aren’t quite as good as they used to be. Meanwhile, I pray that your and Seal’s blood test results come back with good news!

Driving in heavy rain is tough especially when those wipers can’t keep up with the load. Mom and Dad have been dealing with icy roads lately. Most of the time they just stay home. Hoping for good lab reports for both of you.

Some rainstorms are scary, for sure, and worse if on the road. Glad you are home all safe and sound and now have a full belly. Keeping good thoughts about the blood work you and Seal had done.

Happy that you made it through your vet visit. I don’t think any of us like doctors or vets unless we really need their help. Glad you are home and happy once more. I love the photos here. You are all the kindest souls.

Darling, I bet you are fast. Bet you and Lily could have a BAW moment together and have a blast doing it. I love watching Lily and Misty let go and go wild at the same time. Sorry you were fearful on your ride to the vet. I am not a fan of hard heavy rain either, esp when its cold. But you know that both mom and dad would have made sure that you were safe, no matter what happened. They love you and your siblings.
