Thimble knows where to find the brightest puddle of sun. And how to pose in it!
She makes sure to give her mom lots of time to snap some shots. After all, she is a highly skilled model.
While summer is certainly a lovely time of year (when you're not too busy melting, that is), this human will openly admit that her favorite season is autumn. I think my furbabies like it quite a bit, too, because around these parts lovely autumn weather mean lots of open window time. Needless to say, we're all pretty excited about the next season just around the corner.
What about all of our furiends out there? Are you excited for autumn? What's your favorite season?
Our Tip of the Day:
We've previously touched on the topic of spring and summer allergies, such as those to pollen and grass, which can affect not only us but our furbabies as well. But, with autumn just around the corner, perhaps it's a good time to note on the allergens that this impending season is more likely to offer. Along with lingering ragweed, one primary allergen that is especially prevalent in the autumn is mold. This is because all of those beautiful autumn leaves will unfortunately fall, and when they lie on the ground and get rained on, that can produce the perfect environment for mold growth. To help minimize your furbaby's direct exposure to this and other allergens, aside from keeping leaves raked up as best as possible, be sure to wipe off yours shoes or remove them upon entering your home. It might also be wise to keep windows closed if the weather is more on the wet and rainy and therefore especially moldy side, or if it is windy and therefore more likely to blow allergens into your home. Of course, the fault doesn't always lie with the great outdoors. Towards the end of autumn you may start to use your furnace, and that could lead to built up dust causing flareups of allergies. Try to dust off the furnace and registers and vents, and perhaps consider using an air purifier. As beautiful as autumn is, nothing can be perfect, so be sure to keep an eye on your furbaby for signs of autumn allergies, such as discharge from the eyes or nose, sneezing, coughing, and itching and scratching.
