thankful thursday blog hop simon kiki 12282023

Hello everyone, it’s us, Simon and Kiki today and we are your hosts for Angel Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Thanks to you all for stopping by for Angel Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.  We are 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 we are super thankful that Santa was nice to us and we all had a really fun Christmas.   We got more toys and goodies than we could possibly mention in one post, but let’s just say that the toys and the fun was everywhere.  We had such a good time and we’re also happy that Maxwell and Macy enjoyed the first Christmas that they can remember.  Sure, they were here for Christmas 2022 but they were still wee small and scared, so they don’t remember much about it.  

So, today we want to share two short videos with you to show you the fun that we were thankful for this year.  I hope you enjoy them.

So, what are you thankful for today? Tell us in the comments and then join us for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.  Hey Pet Bloggers, don’t forget to leave your daily link over at The Cat Blogosphere for a chance to grab an entry for the end of the month drawing.  Okay, that’s it for now!  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

OMCs OMCs did I say OMCs? Sandy Claws obviously knows exactly how to shop for Cats. The first toy was so funny. Tiny but mightily on the move. The Da Tabbies of Trout Towne will be cheering you on as you go after da BURD.
I will not confirm or deny that I was sacked out like you two in my easy chair recently

LOVE those kitties and the short. Mbappe? Our favorite player, well, next to El Shaarawy, Totti (past player). Those kitties are absolutely adorable and LOVE the flapping birdie. I don’t play as much any longer but….
And mama wants to know how you have us already filled in for comments. WONDERFUL.


Those sure were super fun toys you got. Kiki, did you try to kill that bird?? MOL!

Memories of Eric and Flynn

Those videos are great. Eric would have loved the flapping bird! Kiki, does the world look better upside down?

Kiki, you’re hanging your head upside down off the couch. Be careful all the blood doesn’t run to your brain. And I see that one of the babies managed to catch one of those giant Canada geese. And it looks like you might have my Clockwork Mouse spinning around on your floor too. Precious

LOVED both videos, everyone is having such a wonderful time. i might like to play with the robot bumping mouse thingy.. it’s a cats world in your house for sure. I laughed hard at Kiki’s sleep position. if my head hung down like that I would pass out and fall. so glad you all had a fun Christmas that will last for a long time

Great toys!! And such fun to watch y’all play with them!!

I’m thankful every day for all my blessings, especially the ones I tend to take for granted. But mostly I’m thankful that Ducky and Bogie sent me the Z Kids to fill the empty spaces they left in my life when they journeyed to the Rainbow Bridge. I couldn’t do this grief journey I’m on without my two hooligans!
