Thimble Thursday: Like a Boss

Have you heard that term, "like a boss"? You know, when someone does something "like a boss", meaning that they do it quite impressively or with great authority? Well, Thimble does a lot of things "like a boss".

Thimble lays in the sun like a boss:


And she sits in the sun like a boss:


And, of course, she walks away like a boss:


So, what are all of our furiends out there good at doing "like a boss"?

Happy Thursday!

Our Tip of the Day:
It's summer and it's hot, and keeping your furbabies hydrated is an important thing. Kitties are especially prone to urinary issues, especially when they don't consume enough water. What's more, I'm sure there are many kitty parents out there who have the same concern - their kitty doesn't seem to visit the water bowl enough. Of course there's the chance that your kitty is drinking when you're not looking, or that he or she is getting enough moisture from food, such as moist food. Nevertheless, it never hurts to make attempts to encourage your kitty to drink more water. We've given tips before on keeping the water in the bowl refreshed, using bowls that your kitty prefers, and so forth. But how about some additional, perhaps more obscure options? For example, think about the locations your kitty likes to hang out, and make use of that. Does your kitty like to play or sleep in the bathtub? If so, try putting a water bowl in there. How about in the window, or up on a shelf? If your kitty likes sleeping in such places, leave a water bowl as close to those snoozing spots as possible. Or, does your kitty like to bat at things? If yes, try putting ice cubes in the bowl. If nothing else, with this method your kitty may lick the water from his or her paws. And perhaps you kitty doesn't like tap water. If you're curious if this is the case, try using distilled or bottled water. Another option is to add a little hint of flavor to the water, such as by dripping some tuna water into it to entice your kitty to take a few licks. If your kitty looks and acts happy and healthy and has gotten an A+ from the doctor, there's no need to force water on him or her. But, of course, it never hurts to keep an eye on their drinking habits.

  2. Thimble is so adorable- I love her "like a boss" poses :) Great tips on water, I never thought to put it where they like to hang out. We are lucky to have a well so we know there are no extra chemicals in the water. My Mom has town water so she purchases bottled water for herself and her cat too. I read recently that the chlorine in public water supplies ends up killing off the good bacteria in our gut so I assume it does the same to pets.
