Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: Warm with a Side of Clean

thnakful thursday blog hop brian 02092023

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!

Today I’m thankful that the temperatures have warmed up nicely here in the South, it was actually around 70F here. Even though we are inside kitties we can sure tell when the warm hits. It won’t be long now and we’ll be done with Winter. Oops, I hope I didn’t jinx anything by saying that. The only problem here is that we’ve been having rain 4 out of the 7 days of the week.

Our ferals are sure thankful for the warmer weather. When it is cold the Dad can’t keep their feeding stations cleaned up sso after while they get that new barn smell. Since it was plenty warm yesterday the Dad got their feeding stations all cleaned up for them. Of course the rain will be back today and they will get them muddy again, but at least the barn smell is gone.

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!

I’m glad it’s warming up for your feral cats and cleaning was possible between rains.

Brian, I recall the first time I cleaned out The Cat Hotel for The ‘O’ Cats, and I was panicked that the cats wouldn’t come back.
They did, and they always did after a good clean-out.
But, there was always a bit of concern that they didn’t like my messing with their straw.

Our community tends to some ferals and we are thankful they have gotten through prob the coldest part of the winter.

Brian your daddy does a good job taking care of the outside kitties. We’re to have warm weather today but the winds are going to be 60 mph for 12 hours at least. We’re hoping the roof stays on because I don’t want to get wet as I am an indoor Kitty only. Precious

We are seeing signs of spring here too although it has been cold and sunny lately. But we love the sunpuddles!

It’s a little warmer here too, Brian, but today we’ve got lots of rain. I guess that’s better than snow!

thankful to not be in the hospital! Was in the hospital twice this past weekend (racing heart), they are pretty sure it isn’t my heart (possibly anxiety), had a holter monitor test yesterday so we will see. (I did Lenny’s birthday post before all of this happened)…..I am ok, just nervous!

I am sure the feral are happy and I hope they realize that they are so LUCKY to have dad. He rocks in taking care of the feral and his adopted babes inside. We have had some really strange weather this winter. Today it was 65 when I opened the door for Lily and Misty to venture out on the deck but temps are going to start dropping and be in the high 40s come Sat. YUCK…..stay warm, find you a big ole sun puddle.

It’s warm at my house too. Daddy is about to rip the plastic off the windows that kept out the cold this “winter.” Really, there was no winter to speak of. Mom spent more time in shorts this winter than long pants. Wishing yoo a sunshiny day! Love, Dori

I know well that barn smell! We’ve had a lot of rain too, but we need it. So good of you to take care of the ferals even if it does mean a stinky barn when it rains.

Brian, we are a tad jealous! With the warm and cold we have here the snow is more like ice and the mice, moles and voles are all running around UNDERNEATH the snow! It makes it hard for us to catch them! We are glad that your Dad takes such great care of the ferals! I bet they are grateful too! Keep being awesome guys! Purrs Marv

I don’t know if it even got up to 40 today.

Is that new barn smell, like a new car smell? lol We’re enjoying warmer temperatures, too. I’m loving it! Usually by the end of February, we’ll see Tulips popping up. I hope we don’t have a late season like last year. I’m ready for spring to get here! It makes me all the more thankful to live in east Tennessee. 🙂
