Sibling Selfies

All of our furiends here know none other than little lady Thimble, right? She's the model of this family, always ready to pose for the camera. That's probably why she has this side shot selfie all ready for the fantastic Sunday Selfie blop hop, hosted by our Kitties Blue pals over a The Cat on My Head.

Thimble isn't the only tabby around here who wanted to partake in this fun blog hop, though. Which brings us to our next question. And that is, who here remembers Trapper? The short answer is that Trapper is Thimble's look-a-like litter mate, and he owns my parents (Thimble's Pawpaw and Gammy). When I visited my parents' house with my camera in hand the other day, Trapper was all over the opportunity. He realized Sunday was coming up, and Sunday means selfies, so he eagerly offered up this:

Can you see the resemblance? Trapper has 10 lbs on Thimble, though, being a big boy who weighs in at 20 lbs. But, that doesn't mean the handsome fella can't strike a pose like Thimble, or have the cutest little Thimble-esque expressions, or get called Thimble all the time by this here human because sometimes he just looks so much like the little girl herself.

Do any of our furiends have a doppleganger? A look-a-like? A twin?

Speaking of mirror images, here's our doodle for today:

Happy Sunday!

Our Tip of the Day:
Always consider whether even a seemingly simple or commonplace item in your home could potentially harm your furbaby. Just one example of this is a reclining chair. Such chairs, especially those that have a leg rest that swings out, could easily get a kitty or pup into trouble. A cat or small dog, for example, might crawl under the chair when the leg rest is out, which could lead to them not only being trapped in the chair but injured in the process. For that matter, even a typical chair must be moved with caution with a furbaby is around. After all, without caution, a chair leg could land on a kitty or pup's furry toes if not careful. Therefore, always simply be cognizant of the items in your home and how to keep your furbaby safe around them.


  1. We love that pensive "looking out the window" picture...but OMC, that mirror artwork is, well it is just PURRRRICELESS!!!!!!! It's not only your drawings are wonderful, it's the ideas behind them too! What else can we say, we are your fans, furrrrever!

  2. Trapper and Thimble do look a lot alike. We have a Mom and daughter here who look very much alike. Maggie and Mahoney. We do like the Mirror art very much. Have a great day.

  3. Wow! We totally see the family resemblance between Thimble and Trapper! Such beautiful siblings. :)

    Every now and again, there are cats at the shelter who remind us so much of some of ours, in looks and personalities. We end up nicknaming them things like "Little Moosey" or "Sammy Junior." :)

  4. I definitely see a resemblance. They are both cuties. Phoebe and Sammy look similar, but it is Sammy and Joanie that are litter mates. Very cute drawing. And an excellent tip, Jinx used to always get under the recliner when he was a kitten.

  5. It's lovely that they are both in the family, as it were. I wonder if they met again would they recognise each other? That would make a lovely Sunday selfie picture, just like your art work. purrs ERin

  6. We can't hardly see the difference between the two of them. Are you sure you didn't mixed up the pictures. Both are purrfectly... the same :D I have a Doppelgänger on IG, but you can see the differences immediatly :D Pawkisses for an Easy Sunday :) <3

  7. Oh you two do have a strong resemblance to each other, that makes you both beautiful!

  8. You really look alike, nice selfies ! Purrs

  9. They are both gawjus. We're both Rags, but we don't look anythin' alike. Least dat's what mommy says. Big hugs

    Luv ya'

  10. Holy cat ... they really do look similar! It's hard to believe there is such a huge size difference though. Lovely selfies of both Thimble and Trapper :)

  11. That is some beautiful face.

    Emma and Buster

  12. Even their cheek stripes are similar! That's pretty amazing. I keep in touch with the family that adopted my Patrick (the littermate of Fergus), and while these two kitties looked very similar as babies, they don't look that much alike now. Fergus is darker and smaller, and poor Patrick has deeply crossed eyes.
