Tabby Tuesday

Except for our housemate Toby, the kitties here are all terrifically tabby. That of course includes a certain little lady cat named Thimble.


Here, Thimble is showing off that classic tabby M. Did you know that? That essentially all tabbies have that classic M on their foreheads?


Does anybuddy else have a tabby M to show off?

Happy (Tabby) Tuesday to all!


(P.S. Eddy had her annual at the V-E-T yesterday. She was a less-than-happy customer over the whole ordeal, but she'll give you the details in her Friday post.)

Our Tuesday Tip of the Week:
After discussing with your veterinarian what vaccinations your cat or dog needs and will receive, and after those vaccines are administered, always remember to monitor your furbaby to ensure that no vaccine reactions go unnoticed. Vaccine reactions are most likely to occur on the second or later administration of a particular vaccination, as an initial vaccination is what will first begin the production of antibodies that might thereafter cause reactions to the vaccine. A vaccine reaction can be severe or mild, and can include anaphylaxis, fever, pain or swelling at the injection site, or lethargy. If you notice any of these or other symptoms after your kitty or pup receives a vaccination, contact your veterinarian. Even if your furbaby only displays minimal or mild symptoms, it is still important for your veterinarian to have record of this. Of course, in the case of a severe reaction, seek veterinary care immediately, so that your furbaby can be treated for it promptly and properly. In some cases, a vaccine reaction can be prevented or combated with the pre-administration of something such as the antihistamine diphendyradmine. For all of these reasons, be sure to always monitor your furbaby for potential vaccine reactions, as well as to inform new veterinarians of any known such reactions.

  3. Wally and Zoey have the classic M. Though Wally says if you look at it upside down, it's really a W.

  5. Thimble does have a nice M, she is a beautiful girl. Joanie is a dilute calico, but they let her into a tabby cat club because she has stripes on her leg- she wears a fake M for meetings :) Cute drawing and I like the quote with it. I see you did a tip today too, excellent one. I have been lucky, my cats seem to just get tired from the rabies vaccine, they get the non adjuvant kind. I can't wait to read about Eddy's vet trip.

  13. Mommy is so thankful that none of us or her previous kitties has ever had a vaccine reaction. This is one of the cutest doodles ever. Cooper has a very pronounced M on his head. Of course, we mostly only see his belly. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

  14. Next to tuxies, tabbies are the best! Love the doodle! Dr. D. won't vaccinate me anymore since I get a fever and very lethargic hours after I get it.
