Thimble Thursday: Sharing is Caring

If there is sun to be had, Thimble is always first on the scene. There's nothing like gazing out a sunlit window, and Thimble loves her a front row seat.

Sometimes, Thimble's even willing to share her sun.

How sweet of you, Thimble!

Happy Thursday, furiends! Not only is tomorrow Friday, but it's also a certain orange boy's birthday!

Our Tip of the Day:
How about another tip on caring for feral cats in your area? We're upon kitten season, and kittens sure are adorable. But, if you see a feral cat in your area with a litter of kittens, it is perhaps best to leave the kittens alone to be cared for by the mama cat. First of all, young kittens are often best tended by their own kitty mother, as she can provide them with the appropriate nutrients and sustenance they need by nursing them. So, as long as all the kittens are being properly nursed, they're likely best off with their mama cat. Furthermore, there's also the chance that handling a feral mama's kittens may not only stress the cat and kittens, but may also cause the mama cat to relocate her little ones. In this case, you may not see the mama and her babies again, and they may not be so lucky in another area as they are in your domain, especially if you are providing the mama with food, water, and shelter. None of this is to say that these kitties can't be trapped and neutered and perhaps even adopted by humans one day. But, as young kittens, the little cuties are likely best tended by their mama cat.

That was nice of you to share your sun, Thimble. Sometimes, we don't share as nicely.

I wish Cody had another kitty to share his space with, but something makes me think he is just fine only having to share space with Dakota! catchatwithcarenandcody

That looks like a lovely spot to share a sun puddle.

Mudpie is very thankful that she doesn't have to share her sun puddles!
