Thimble Thursday: Playing Coy

Sometimes when her momma gets the camera out, Thimble likes to pretend to be shy.

This momma knows better, though, and always asks Thimble to please say, "Cheese!"

But if a girl doesn't want to, she's not going to.

Well, Thimble, at least your chin is pretty darn cute.

Happy Thursday to all of our furiends!

Our Tip of the Day:
Did you know that cats can get acne? It typically first manifests as dark spots, or blackheads, on the cat's chin, so be sure to do regular checks of that area on your kitty. Feline acne could potentially be caused by any number of things, including stress, poor grooming habits, low immune response, sensitivity or allergies to foods or other environmental conditions, and even ringworm or other underlying dermatological conditions. In some cases, acne can lead to swelling, and it can become itchy and lead the affected kitty to scratch at it, causing further trauma to the chin and surrounding areas. If you see acne on your kitty, therefore, do consider consulting your veterinarian and having it checked out. Your vet can rule out any underlying issues, and can prescribe any necessary treatments, depending on the cause and severity of the acne. Sometimes all it takes is a little cleaning or a simple topical treatment. Even kitties can't escape acne sometimes, so be sure to be on the lookout.

We gotta admit. That "shy" is SO cute!

Oh Thimble, you are just too cute. We think the pictures are great. You all have a great day.

Thimble, we do the same "shy" routine when the camera comes out. We want the mom to really work for the purrfect shot. :)

Fancy your Momma wanting you to smile for the camera although you can get your own back by ignoring her and the flashy box.

You are very cute thimble!

We Sphynx are prone to getting acne due to the oil that can build up on our skin. It's pretty typical for Sphynx to have chin blackheads, at the very least - in fact it's so common, there is a special Sphynx soap made especially to deal with blackheads!

Awwww.....Thimble, your chin is adorable. How cute she is playing shy. I have had a few cats get acne over the years and it was always from plastic dishes. We now use glass and stainless.
