Thimble Thursday

My poor furbabies are unlucky enough to be the guinea pigs models in my various photography experimentations. I, though, am lucky enough to have at least one furbaby who is usually a more than willing guinea pig model.

My girl Thimble can be quite the ham for the camera. She will often pose for picture after picture, happy to have her adorable face immortalized in a photograph. Unsurprisingly, Thimble gladly cooperated for a recent photo shoot in which I decided to yet again experiment with lighting and closeups. She wanted to share these highlights from the photo session:






So, Thimble wants to know how she did. Is she model material?

We're wishing all of our furiends a wonderful Thursday! Don't worry, Friday's almost here!

Our Tip of the Day:
As I'm sure most of you kitty parents know, cats' tails can speak volumes. What's more, part of caring for your feline furbaby includes knowing what your cat's tail is saying, so that you can properly address any issues it is indicating. When a kitty's tail is straight out behind it or straight up in the air, of normal size and not puffed out, those are signs that the kitty is happy and content. On the other hand, if a kitty's tail is straight up in the air but is big and puffed out, that typically means kitty is fearful and/or trying to scare off a perceived threat. Another sign of fear or anxiety is a tail that is held very low or between a cat's legs, which is also the case in dogs. If you see such a tail on your furbaby, try to determine what the instigator is so that you can resolve the issue at hand. So, always try to remember that body language can be a telltale sign of your furbaby's feelings toward a certain situation.

  13. We are more tolerant than willing and cooperative about pictures. Which is why you most often see us sleeping or looking outside or BEING outside...

  14. Thimble, you are most definitely ready for the catwalk!

    I don't know what's happening with blogspot, but my visitors have dropped off dramatically since the beginning of May. I don't blog every day like I use too as I don't have a lot of cooperation from Laila and Minchie at times. That's what's great having LOTS of furbabies!

  15. Precious Thimble, there is no doubt whatsoever ... you are a SUPERmodel! :)

    Great tips on the language of the tail. Having a firm grasp of what different tail postures and movements mean has certainly been helpful to us as we've volunteered over the years!
