thankful thursday blog hop brian 12222022

Hello everyone, thanks to you all 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!

It’s my 14th Gotcha Day and I’m so thankful to be able to celebrate another one with all of you.  Can you believe it, 14 years already, time sure flies by so quickly.  As most of you know, I was born on a Christmas Tree Farm in 2008 and I was adopted just three days before Christmas.  No wonder I love the Christmas holiday so much! Our dear friend Sandy rescued me and took care of me until I came home.  She owned Kitten Action Team but has since retired and moved away  Thanks Sandy, I will always be thankful you found me and took care of me.

So much has changed over those 14 years.  My loved and special Brother Ivan ran to the Rainbow Bridge just eleven months after I was adopted, I miss him so much.  At one point there was nine of us inside, but sadly Sascha, Gracie, Zoe, Precious, Kit and Dolly now are Angels too.  Now we’re a family of six with the additions of Kiki, Maxwell and Macy. I’m thankful for all of them.

One thing hasn’t changed, I still have the best blogging pals ever.  Talk about an extended family, I love each and every one of you and I still do a happy dance when new followers join us.  Thanks for coming by today to help me celebrate, I appreciate and am thankful for all of you!

Here’s the Santa Watch with Kiki for today…

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!

Wow, 14 years already! Happy Gotcha Day, Brian!! We love you bunches! <3

We wish we had known your brother, Ivan. We knew all your sisters and cried as each one went to Rainbow Bridge. We will all see each other again someday, though, I believe that.

Hope you got some treats today to celebrate your special day! <3

Brian, you are most certainly a Christmas boy. What a wonderful gift you have given your human parents all these years. By just being you. I see that Miss Kiki is doing a fantastic job. She’s a quick learner.

Hi Brian! Wowzers! Has it been 14 years!?!? Kozmo’s 12th Gottcha Day is tomorrow! He says he has been reading your blog his whole life. We miss your angels, but the newbies are pretty terrifc. Maxwell and Macy and Kiki are excellent additions.
BTW, Mom just read your Non-Affilate disclosure (it could have been there forever) and she laughed so hard, coffee came out her nose! And she say to tell you guys that your Dad ROCKS! Keep being awesome! Purrs Marv

Sorry I missed this auspicious occasion. It’s hard to believe you’ve been gotcha’d for14 years already. You still look like a youngling. You are an icon of the Cat Blogosphere, Brian. I hope Kiki is taking notes from you, but she looks absolutely mesmerized waiting for Santa. Merry Christmas to all your family and friends around the world.

Dearest Brian, please forgive us for be missing so much of the time. Our mom is so frustrated about her site issues. We are wishing you a happy belated Gotcha Day. To think you were just a youngster when we met you. The years are just flying by. We remember all your lovely angels, except we didn’t know Ivan, and loved every one of them. We are looking forward to getting to know Macy and Max. Sending love.
