As always, our hosts came up with some fantastic fill-ins for us.
1. I challenge everyone to _________ this week.
2. I regret disposing of _________.
3. I have a difficult time admitting _________.
4. If I were given a psychic power, I would like it to be _________.
And, as always, I have no idea if I could ever do them justice.
1. I challenge everyone to smile at a stranger this week.
(You never know when someone could use a smile, if a smile would make their day.)
2. I regret disposing of my Angel Sammy's fur.
(I was only 9 years old when my cat Sammy made his way to the Rainbow Bridge, but I still wish I would have had the foresight to grab some of his fur, maybe a whisker or two. All I had to do was grab a wad of it from his brush, or from his favorite bed, but I never did. I always just threw it away. He was the first of my childhood pets to pass away, quite unexpectedly, and he is the only one from which I have no hair or other such physical piece of remembrance. I have beautiful memories and pictures, of course, but I will always regret that he is the only furbaby of mine from whom I have not even a single strand of fur.)
3. I have a difficult time admitting that I'm not a kid anymore.
(Sometimes adulting is tough, especially when your favorite movies are animated kids' films, and when your favorite snacks are the likes of dry Cheerios eaten out of snack baggies.)
4. If I were given a psychic power, I would like it to be the power of healing.
(When people ask me what kind of special power I would choose if I could have one, this is almost always what I say. I don't want to fly, or to be invisible, or to be able to throw a car down the street with nothing but my supersonic elbow grease. No, I'd rather be able to heal, both humans and furbabies.)
Now we've reached Eddy's share of this Friday post. Last week, Eddy showed you some lovely profile shots of her as she gazed out the window. (Remember how that window was laden with spider webs because of this lazy human's lackadaisical spring cleaning? Yuck!). This week, we have some more shots from that same photo shoot. These, though, are examples of Eddy's defiant side.
"No, Mom, I am not going to say cheese. I don't even like cheese!"
"Yeah, yeah, yeah. I hear you, Mom, I'm just choosing to ignore you."
Who else likes to show some defiance toward the camera?
Happy Friday! And stay cool out there, everybuddy!

Our Tip of the Day:
Especially if your cat or small dog is on a weight loss journey, or if the monitoring of their weight is for any reason especially important, consider getting a baby scale or other comparable scale for your home. Though it is better than nothing, it is not always accurate to use the method of weighing yourself, then weighing yourself while holding your furbaby, and then taking the difference. Another option for weigh-ins is to ask your vet if you can bring your kitty or pup in for a quick use of one of their scales, as many veterinary offices are more than willing to allow this. If traveling or vet visits are stressful for your furbaby, though, then do perhaps consider looking into a scale that can be more accurately used for weigh-ins at home.
