Bookish Sunday

We recently heard that today, April 23rd, is World Book Day. We also found it referred to as World Book and Copyright Day, and World Book Night. No matter what it's called, if it has to do with books, we're all in.

Evan had already asked if he could star in a selfie this week for the fantastic Sunday Selfies blog hop hosted by The Cat on My Head, since Thimble got to be the star last week. Being World Book Day, I asked if he could maybe snap a shot in the library. How do you think he did?


Now, for those who don't know, little lady cat Thimble is our resident librarian. She loves her library, and her books, and she's not always all that keen on sharing them. That's probably why, when she found Evan posing for pictures in her bookish domain, she wasn't pleased.

I did ask Thimble if she wanted to snap a selfie in the library, too. But, let's be honest, she was too miffed and so all she gave me was this:


To make it up to Thimble, though, I told her I'd doodle something just for in honor of World Book Day. I hope she likes it, and that she can forgive me my misdeeds.


Happy reading!

Don't forget to visit the Kitties Blue for the Sunday Selfie blog hop!


Wishing everybuddy a stupendous Sunday!

Our Tip of the Day:
Do you have a paper chewing furbaby? Chewing and ripping paper products may simply be fun for some furbabies, and it can be the result of a dog or cat's instinct to gnaw on and rip at prey in the wild. On the other hand, this behavior may be a sign of boredom, anxiety, or, in extreme cases, something along the lines of a nutrient deficiency. Especially for those pups and kitties with an excessive habit of it, chewing on paper may not be an ideal behavior. There is the potential for intestinal blockage, such as if large quantities of paper are consumed by your furbaby. And of course there is also the concern of your pup or kitty consuming accompanying staples, paper clips, tape, and so forth. Not to mention that this behavior could lead to the loss of important documents, such as tax forms, or even damage to favorite books. For the safety of your furbaby, as well as your paper goods, perhaps try to train your furbaby from the beginning that chewing on paper, cardboard, and other such items is not allowed. Redirect this sort of chewing behavior by offering them proper chew toys instead, and by giving positive reinforcement when they obey. Also avoid offering paper goods, such as napkins or cardboard tubes, as play toys, as this might only spur them to treat all such items as toys. Of course, if you have any concern that paper chewing is anything more than just a fun hobby and is instead s a medical concern, please consult your veterinarian.

  14. Evan, that is quite the majestic pose. You look meowvolous. Thimble, even blurry, you are adorable, and the drawing your mom made for you is fantastic, as they always are. Astrid likes to shred paper, but she doesn't do it as such as she used to. Thanks for hopping with us each week.
