Did you know that we have a frog in our very own family? Those of you who have been reading our blog for a while now might remember meeting this frog in the past. It's an old frog. As in, my family adopted this frog when I was 10 years old, because a friend of a friend was going to flush it. Why? Because it had a tendency to eat fish. Well, we informed these people that they better just hand the frog over to us, and we would let it live in a tank all to itself, therefore solving the fish-eating problem. Anyway, that was something like 18 years ago. Yes, the frog is somewhere around 18 years old. Oh, and the kitties just love trying to make friends with it.
Now, though, hopping to our next bit of business, we land at the Friendly Fill-Ins challenge, hosted by our friends over at 15andmeowing and McGuffy's Reader.
We have some great fill-ins to work with this week, thanks to our fantastic hosts.
1. I don't understand why _________ is so popular.
2. My in case of emergency person is _________.
3. There is so much _________!
4. I would be lost without _________.
I don't know if did these justice, but I sure tried!
1. I don't understand why plastic surgery is so popular.
(I've always been of the mind that aging gracefully is the way to go. I understand that in some cases, cosmetic surgery is for legitimate, reasonable, and medically sound reasons. However, when it comes to augmenting certain parts of the body just to go up a few sizes or to match some arbitrary societal standard, I don't get it. I simply cannot wrap my head around it. So many celebrities do it these days, and I find that sort of disheartening. Why would someone want to look or feel or be plastic? There really is so much beauty in aging gracefully, if you ask me.)
2. My in case of emergency person is my mom.
(My mom, my dad, and my sister are all listed as my emergency contacts in various cases, but I think it really comes down to my mom. Honestly, I still have to call her to ask what my bank account numbers are, so I think she's the one for the job.)
3. There is so much to learn!
(I realize each and every day just how little I know. Between work, my furbabies, my family, technology, life in general, and all the in between day-to-day stuff, I will never stop learning. And, honestly, I'm okay with this. I think it would be quite boring to know everything. I think that uphill battle of learning life's lessons is often exactly what we need.)
4. I would be lost without my furbabies.
(Really, I don't know what I'd do without them Who else would wake me up at 4 am by stomping all over my face, just to make sure that I'm still breathing? And who else would remind me what time breakfast is, and second breakfast, and lunch, and snack, and second and third snack, and pre-dinner and dinner? In all honesty, though, nothing says unconditional love like those sweet little furballs in our lives, and I really would be lost without them.)
And what's next? Eddy! Well, Eddy heard that Evan and Thimble, and even sort of pup Astrid, all showed off their peepers this week. So, although sitting perfectly still was not quite possible for this active little lady, Eddy did her best to snap a shot of her little green eye to share with all of you.
The eyes have it!
We are wishing all of our furiends a happy Friday!
Our Tip of the Day:With Spring comes the shedding of your furbaby's winter coat. This time of year, when your pup or kitty is more heavily losing their fur, do be sure to regularly groom them. Combing your pup or kitty helps keep them from having to remove all of that excess fur themselves, which can in turn help prevent vomiting and other consequences of hairballs in the gastrointestinal tract. Combing also of course helps prevent tangles and mats, which can be uncomfortable and even painful for your furbaby. In addition, regular combing can help your furniture, rugs, and clothing to have maybe even just a tad bit less hair buildup. And don't forget, for furbabies who might not always enjoy being combed, toys, treats, and short bouts of combing can help get the necessary job done. Groom away!
