Thimble Thursday: On the Lookout

Thimble is not only a ridiculously adorable and talented model, but also a proficient watch kitty.

She's always on the lookout. She watches out for any naughtiness from the resident pup. And she keeps those boy kitties in line, not to mention that ever active Eddy.

Nothing gets past Thimble's attention.

Well, unless she's on break. In that case, you might want to back off and let a lady chillax in peace.

Happy Thursday to all of our furiends!

Our Tip of the Day:
So, we've all heard that cats sleep roughly 16 hours each day. Older kitties typically sleep even more than that, often 20 or so hours per day. Did you know, though, that this habit of excessive sleeping is more or less in a kitty's genes, thanks to their wild ancestors? Cats in the wild hunt for their food in order to survive, which can mean lots of stalking and tracking and running and jumping. All of that uses up energy, which means that when they're not hunting and eating, they need to rest up and conserve energy. So, our little domestic cats may not have to hunt for their food like their ancestors, but that doesn't mean that instinct and need to sleep isn't there. So, today's tip is a simple one, and that is to let a sleeping kitty lie. When you see your kitty resting or sleeping, although it might be tempting, try to refrain from too often interrupting them for cuddles and play and so forth. After all, a kitty needs her beauty rest! Unless, of course, you are concerned that your kitty is sleeping more than usual, in which case please consult a veterinarian.
