Thankful Thursday Blog Hop:  Deliveries Can Be Comfy Too

thankful thursday blog hop brian 05262022

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 thankful for the deliveries that come to our house.  Yes, lots of those deliveries are for us kitties but some are for our Mom and Dad too.  I know, it’s hard to believe that Mom and Dad get things too, but they do.  Each day we never know what deliveries will show up until we hear them being plopped down on the front porch.  That plop down usually sends Simon running, that is if he is awake MOL!

Anyways, I should tell you the important thankful and that is the boxes.  I have seniority here so I’m the CBI, Chief Box Inspector.  You see, when boxes arrive the Dad brings them in and stages them in the hallway prior to opening.  That’s when I do my inspection thing.  Even unopened boxes are a treasure and I’m thankful for boxes, opened and unopened.  I love my job!

Okey Dokey, that’s it for me.  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!

Aw, it’s excellent that you get to inspect the boxes first, Brian!
Sometimes, when boxes arrive, I try to get them put away before The Hubby sees them.
When I went away to the office, I’d simply have my purchases delivered there, but the pandemic changed things!

Brian OMCs, speaking of boxes and surprises, 7 months from today (Wednesday) will be Christmas.
I’m thankful to you and the staff for hosting this day. Kitties and boxes are such fun.

Nice job, Brian. We can see you take inspecting those boxes seriously!

Being Chief Box Inspector is a very good job to have.

Boxes truly are wonderful things. It would seem that I, Benny, am the first of the Poupounette kitties to really love boxes!

Here’s hoping for a continuing constant stream of boxes to inspect!

We all go wild when we hear the big truck stopping outside the house. The guy never rings the bell because we are so loud Mom can’t miss that a package has arrived. Enjoy your boxes.

Dear Brian, it’s been so long since I’ve had my precious cats that I’d all but forgotten these funny/sweet things they did. Enjoy your boxes, and I’ll bet your the best CBI for miles around.

Boxes are great in any form. Can you believe the last few things Mom got were in padded envelopes???? What’s with THAT?

Maybe you need business cards, Brian, CBI Free of charge because I love my job… you are so easy to please. Beau pays no attention to boxes except to sniff the human smell that sat them on the porch..

We like boxes too and are thankful when they arrive. They are fun to sit on, and in and you can play in them once the peeps open them if they are big enough.

Today we are thankful for flowers.

We love delivery boxes too, especially since many of them contain treats for us! Walter loves them for the paper and plastic pillows inside that our pawrents let him destroy. It’s the cheapest toy you can find. BOL!

I’m thankful for home grown wacky weed (nippy). And my daytime hidy holes for sleeping.
Lynn sees I get good food and Greenies. I guess I’m thankful she watches my weight, but
I’d rather forget about it and just eat.
Nice box Brian.

Oh Brian!! Unlike all I have heard about Cody who came before me, I LOVE boxes!! Mom puts ours in the hallway too (until her lazy butt gets around to opening them!) I love boxes unopened or opened! I just love boxes!! (I will say that quite a few come for Mom, none for Dad….and the rest are for me and Levi!! ) Love, Roary

That’s what my dog does too. Once the boxes are opened I show him what it is so he can sniff it real good. lol
