Toesies, Tummy, and a Whole Lot of Class

You won't believe who is here today to show off some toesies and tummy. You'd never imagine that this furbaby would actually sit still, let alone pose for a toesies and tummy shot.

Is that enough clues? Can you guess who it is?

If you guessed Eddy, you're right! None other than active Eddy decided that she wanted to not only sit still for more than a nanosecond, but to also show you all her toesies and a bit of tummy today.

Talk about classy. Here, need another look?

So, there you have it. I do apologize for the less than ideal lighting. When Eddy sits still, you don't worry about camera settings, you just snap the shot. You never know when this rare event will happen again. It's like a blood moon, or a sighting of Sasquatch himself.

And now, on to our art of the day. I often like to challenge myself by trying to match the art to the subject of that day's post. In trying to do so today, all I could think of was how for the above photo shoot Eddy was sprawled out in her favorite kitty bed, which is in fact on my bed. And that's when this doodle came to be:

Zzzzzzz. Nothing like a bed full of kitties to help you, well, have nowhere to sleep at night. That's okay, though, because the sleep deprivation is totally worth it.

Here's to a terrifc Tuesday, full of toesies and tummies!

Our Tip of the Day:
Don't forget to trim your furbaby's nails! Walking on long nails can be very uncomfortable for your kitty or pup. Cats of course do a bit of nail filing on those scratching posts of theirs, and pups do grind theirs down some when out on walks. Nevertheless, they should be trimmed on a regular basis, before they grow too long. We've given tips before on trimming nails, such as waiting to do so when your furbaby is clam and relaxed, and to use treats as a reward. We've also mentioned, as I'm sure you all know, to be careful of the quick, which is found at the base of each nail and which will bleed if cut. That being said, as a precaution, it never hurts to have styptic powder or cornstarch at the ready during nail trims. If you trim a nail and blood appears, immediately apply styptic powder or cornstarch. It may help to have the styptic powder or cornstarch in a little baggie or bowl, and if needed you can dip the affected claw in it. This will help the blood to clot and the bleeding to stop, and before you know it all will be back to normal. So, don't let nail trims scare you! Always try to avoid the quick, but accidents can happen, and in such a case just have that styptic powder or cornstarch ready and all will be fine.


  1. Eddy! You have cute toes and tummy, Mom wants to sneak a rub on that tummy!

  2. Eddy, that is such a great picture of you and your toesies and tummy. And the drawing looks like our Mom's bed at night. Just all cats. You all have a wonderful day.

  3. Oh Eddy! We love the way you sit. We think it's quite classy. Cute toesies!

  4. Please thank Eddy for letting us see her beautiful toesies. That is a cute drawing too. I agree sleep deprivation is fine as long as the cats are happy.
    Great tip about nails too. I am much better with cat nails than rabbit nails. When I had rabbits, I would get a bleeder every time.

  5. Eddy, darling, what beautiful toesies you have. Thanks for that weak moment of sitting still and showing them off. These are fabulous and memorable photos. Add three more cats to that photo and you have our humans' bed. neither Astrid or Cooper Murphy sleep on the bed, but all the rest of us do!

  6. Lovely toesies ! It's funny to see you sitting like this ! Purrs

  7. Eddy we love those toesies! Love the kitty picture too

  8. The sleep deprivation is 100% worth it! Your pose is too adorable, Eddy!

  9. Totally classy, Eddy! What a treat to see you here today. And those toesies! :)
