Thimble Thursday: Hanging Out

Thimble and I like to hang out by the window together.
She gives me lots of tips on the art of squirrel-watching. After all, she's a pro. Rule #1 for squirrel-watching: Keep your eyes open.
 But, squirrel-watching can be pretty tiring.
So, that's when I take the opportunity to gather some pointers from Thimble on napping. Rule #1 for napping: Look ridiculously cute.
Perhaps I am a bit biased, but I'd say Thimble has pretty much mastered that cuteness rule.

And now, here's the Valentine I created for my little lady Thimble:

Happy Thursday, everybuddy! Who's ready for Friday?

Our Tip of the Day:
Have you ever noticed that sometimes your cat just can't seem to find a treat you've put right there in front of his or her face? That's because cats can't see well close up. Cats can better see objects that are farther away, and objects that are moving. They also have better peripheral vision than central vision. This goes back to a cat's skills as a hunting predator out in the wild, where they catch prey by lying in wait and watching for movement. So, if your kitty can't seem to find that treat you just put right in front of his or her face, give the treat a little nudge or flick. If it's out of their central vision and is moving, your kitty is more likely to pick up on it.

Lucy says it's good to relax in the window and take a nap when you feel like it.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

I love Thimble's Valentine. She is such a cutie, definitely has the look mastered- without effort :) I have noticed my cats have trouble finding things in front of them- except Joanie- she has a nose like a bloodhound.

Thimble is cute awake and asleep. That is a lovely card for her.

She certainly has! And squirrel watching is lots of fun :)

Well, you have every right to be biased! Thimble is totally cute! How fun to squirrel watch with Thimble!

I love her Valentine with her balloon. :)

About the treats, yes, I've noticed that many times. I didn't know that about their vision. That's interesting.

Thimble, rest up so you can be ready for squirrel watching again.

Excellent work, Thimble! We bet the squirrels will still be there when you wake up. :)

We love your Valentine. You are so talented and creative!
