And now, two days later, we're back to nearly 90°F. It's hot and muggy, and the sun is more or less making us melt.
My thoughts exactly, Thimble. Seriously, Mother Nature, what's the deal? Is anybuddy else at war with Mother Nature these days?
Well, even if it doesn't feel like autumn, we still hold out hope that one day it will arrive. Thimble is like her human of a mom and loves the cool weather. She loves the open windows, and the brisk air makes her extra playful. That's why I told her that she could star in today's drawing for JNW's Halloween Challenge, given that the prompt is fall/autumn. So, this one's for you, Thimble.
Wishing all of our furiends a beautiful Tuesday!
Our Tip of the Day:
With cool air upon us, those with fireplaces might be considering lighting them up soon, if you haven't done so already. Today's tip is an obvious one, and it's to please practice fire safety around the fireplace, as well as around any candles and other open flames. For your furbaby's safety, please make use of a gate or another safe enclosure for the fireplace. Also please consider not initiating any playtime with your furbaby by the fire, not only prevent any accidents, but to also help them learn that the fire is not something to take lightly. And, of course, please consider only lighting up that lovely fireplace when you can monitor it and your furbaby. Even the most wise and responsible of furbabies can find themselves in trouble if left unattended in a risky situation. You and your furbaby can indeed stay warm and cozy by the fire, but please make sure this is done safely!
