Hello everyone, 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!
We’re always thankful for the yummy food that we get here. We usually get a nice variety of food and the Dad mixes it up for us so that we have something new to try. We eat probably an equal amount of wet food and dry crunchie food. Some of us do like those crunchy meals, it’s mostly a guy thing here. Simon likes the crunch and so do I, even though I only have half of my teeth left. I still manage just fine.
Anyways, today I’m thankful for the food we no longer eat. I know, it’s hard to believe that us kitties would suddenly stop eating a food that we liked for a while MOL. Yep, it happens. So, what happens to the food we no longer eat? Well, it goes to one of the local shelters of course. The kitties at the shelter no doubt enjoy getting something different and we’re really glad to help them out. They deserve some bonus meals coming their way. The Dad and Mom took them about eight cases of food on Tuesday. We’re sure they will all enjoy it.
So, tell 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!
What a wonderful thing to do, donate food you can’t use at your house to a shelter! The shelters here use such donations, too; in fact, one shelter uses all such donated food to feed their cats in foster homes.
That’s very good of your Dad and Mom to donate food to the shelter, Brian. You are looking handsome today!
How great that Mom and Dad make sure you get the food YOU like, Brian! And we love that ya’ll shared those foods with the shelter cats. XO
Que bueno regalan comida que ya no comen. Les mando un beso.
Awesome that you shared the food with the kitties in shelters. You should try some raw meat, Brian.
what a super idea… and we hope the kitties in the shelter have a super supper now…
Its way better than letting it all go to waste, and the kitties there will thank you from the bottom of their now full tummies!
We recently told petcretary to take a whole lot of food we didn’t need anymore to the shelter where Dalton came from.
The shelter kitties will enjoy that food. When Flynn got ill it was difficult to find something he would eat so we made a trip to the local shelter every few months with food. We still take a big package of goodies every Christmas.
We do that too, Brian, they also get our clothing so they can buy more food😸We’re especially Thankful for cats like you💗Double Pawkiss for all of you🐾😽💞
Thanks for hosting this blog Brian – it’s always fun voicing our “thankfuls” with you. When I stop eating a particular food, my Mom uses it to feed our “morning breakfast club kitties” who visit us early most mornings looking for a handout. We believe some are strays, and some are neighborhood cats whose humans let them roam at night which is dangerous around here. But they know if they show up on my front porch they will get something to eat!
That is so thoughtful and generous that your peeps donate food to the shelter, Brian.
We are sure the shelter cats are very thankful that you donate food to them. It’s always nice to get something different. We don’t have a post today, but we should have a post tomorrow. We are thankful for that.
Brian, you and your dad and your mom are just real generous. Just because you kitty stopped eating this food at home and you are also feeding all those feral cats, you were able to take all this food to the orphanage. Every nibble Will Be Loved by every Kitty that’s still waiting on their furever home.
We are not surprised you guys stop eating certain things, it is what cats seem to do. The shelter kitties certainly are lucky to get more food. It is very nice of you all.
That is sweet of you to donate food to the shelter. I usually give ours to a woman I know that feeds 8 ferals. Thanks for hosting. Have a great day. XO
That’s so good of your parents to donate the food you no longer like.
your thankful makes all the shelter kitties thankful and that makes the people who care for them thankful, so you are paying forward your thankfuls.
Donating to shelters is what we all should do. Your parents rock, Brian.
Thank you for hosting the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.
Have a purrfect Thankful Thursday. Scritches all around and my best to your peeps. ♥
Eight cases of food is a lot of food, lucky shelter! (The biped here has done the same, numerous times, most recently with all the vet food that Derry can no longer eat, having had to switch types of food for his issues.)
Java Bean: “I am also thankful for food that cats no longer eat, because it was when Mama was dropping off a donation of such food that she saw me at the shelter and came over to take a closer look at me. And now I have a home of my very own!”
Morning Brian such lucky shelter kitties. I understand how tastes change. Mine have too as I have become ‘younger’! MOL
We had a friend bring over a case of food that her kitties wouldn’t eat and ours sure loved it – until they didn’t – MOL! I sure understand that kitties suddenly change taste, it’s one of those facts of life. Enjoy your crunchies Brian!
Thank you and your cats for being so thoughtful and kind. So far Lucy does not turn up her nose at anything I put in her bowl!
I am thankful that Daisy has come home after a week in the forest
We’ll bet those kitties will enjoy new yummy noms!
I agree with you on the mixing it up and the crunchy and the wet. We think alike. I’m super impressed that you donated so many cases of food! That’s a beautiful thing. I inadvertently bought a 10 lb bag of crunchies instead of the normal 4 lb bag. I was thinking about the supply chain, being on an island, hurricane season for another month. Month. But now I’m concerned that maybe it will be in tip top shape. By the time I get to the bottom. May have to donate! That was my first thought. Carry a bunch in… Read more »
Please excuse that I did not edit my dictation! Aloha
My post for tomorrow touches kinda on the same topic. TW is about to prepare a package for one of our rescues too. Unfortunately the shelters up here won’t take kibble if the bag is opened but fortunately the TNR feeders will.
I’m a fan of the wet/dry combo myself! I get wet food twice a day and crunchies inbetween!!! Love, Roary
Shelter kitties are very grateful for finicky cats and their loving parents!
Have a wonderful weekend!
I am thankful I am healthy.
How wonderful that they’ll have some new foods to enjoy!
Kitties, life has been so weird and busy that I forgot it was Thursday!
Whoa, think I need to slow down, but it’s work….
I am proud of you for passing eating so there can partake of your good
Oh Brian, your mom and dad are the best !! The very best. XX
We’re glad you get to eat what you like, Brian. And that the local shelter benefits from it! XOX Xena, Lucy, Chia and Riley
We’re at the stage that we get tired of food easily too. In our case, our trash is the feral/outside cats treasure. So no waste.
That is a great idea 😀 I do that from time to time and help where I can. I usually help the SSPCA which is the Scottish charity for helping all animals in Scotland. Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals as they are known as!
Variety as they say is the ‘spice of life’ ~ guess you kitties agree ~ Xo
Wishing you good health, laughter and love in your days ~ Xo

Dude, we’re the same, we have a lovely mixed variety menu of delights featuring both wet and dry food. And we too suddenly hate everything we’ve previously loved – it must be a cat thing! MOL The P.A. takes our unwanted food to work to feed the strays, Rupert and Squeaky love what we don’t!
Your humans are awesome!
This made me think of something that happened years ago, but I forgot about. I used to work at a pet shot in my teens. The store got about 50 small boxes of cat food as a promotion and they didn’t want it, so they gave it to me. I excitedly brought it home for my cats — and they wouldn’t touch a morsel of it. They had 0 interest in this new, strange food. I honestly can’t remember what we ended up doing with all of it.
