Thimble Thursday: Fun in the Sun

On Monday, Evan showed off how good he looked in the traveling sunglasses of Phoebe from 15andmeowing.

When Thimble saw her orange brother posing, she had to get in on the action, too. She marched right on over and demanded that her auntie, who was lending Evan her opposable thumbs, stop putting the glasses on Evan. After all, Thimble's the model around here, and so it was clearly her turn.

A girl doesn't just put on her wardrobe without inspecting it first, though.

A good sniffing was in order, obviously.

Sniff, sniff, and then sniff some more.

The glasses passed the test, and so Thimble's auntie was ready to fit them on this little model. Thimble had other ideas, though.

A girl doesn't wear glasses, silly. She rubs them all over her face!

And then takes a rest in the sun with them. After all, they are sunglasses. Duh.

Oh, and Thimble was happy to learn that today is the Tocktober celebration, in memory of Derby, who loved to show off his rear end.

Thimble told me that I was allowed to snap one shot of her usually shy derriere. She stuck with her sunny posing, decided on a tooshie side view, and gave me this:

And, now we have today's drawing for JNW's Halloween Challenge. The prompt for today is fog, and I told Thimble that she could keep this day completely and totally to herself, so she gets to be the star. We tried to get a bit extra artsy fartsy with our fog, and although we aren't quite sure of the result, here you go:

We hope all of our furiends have a lovely day!

Our Tip of the Day:
Always remember that cleanliness of your furbaby's rear end is important. With the close proximity of all the parts and pieces in that area, a UTI can result if the area is not kept clean of fecal matter and such. This is especially something to consider with animals that are on the highly furry side, as urine, feces, litter, and other debris can get trapped in the fur there and contaminate the area with bacteria and the like. And of course also consider the possibility that some animals, such as those that are obese or affected with arthritis, may not be able to reach the area to clean it themselves. Therefore, always monitor your furbaby's hind quarters, especially after they've had a potty break. If they are unable to clean the area themselves, carefully wipe it for them, such as with a fragrance free pet or baby wipe, and also consider keeping the fur in that area trimmed back.

Thimble, we love your "sunglass wearing" style! And you have some cute tocks too.

Thimble, great tocks and you almost wore those sun glasses. Glad you had fun trying. Have a great day.

Thimble knows what she's doing!

Aw, Thimble, good job with the traveling sunglasses. Too bad we didn't get to see all your tocks but a side view is still cute. You look adorable in the fog!

Very fashionable. You only need to show that you have sunglasses. You don't actually need to wear them.

Phoebe and I both thank Thimble for trying the sunglasses- she looks cute smelling them. And that tock is just too cute. Excellent tip too. And I love the fog drawing.
