You know, just one of those days when you feel, well, grumpy?
As evidenced here, Thimble had one of those days recently. Being the model kitty that she is, though, she decided to immortalize that grumpy mug of hers in this sour-faced photo shoot.
What's more, Thimble informed me that she would be entering these grumpy selfies into the Sunday Selfies blog hop, hosted by the fantastic Kitties Blue of The Cat on My Head.
I hope our blog hopping hosts don't mind a bit of grump, with a little side of sass, because that's sort of what Thimble has to offer today.
Oh, and it doesn't end there. Thimble also advised me that today was a suitable day to whip up a little doodle of one of her celebrity crushes. And who am I to argue? So, of course, I obliged.
It's grumpy kitties galore today! Are any of our furiends having a Grumpy Sunday? We hope not! We're instead hoping that it's a happy and healthy day for you all!
Our Tip of the Day:Don't forget that even the kitties and pups in our lives can display a range of facial expressions. And, just as in humans, those furry expressions can be an indication of our furbabies' thoughts and feelings. For this reason, especially in new or uncertain situations, never forget to observe your furbaby and to use their expressions, of course in addition to other body language, as cues. Are your furbaby's eyes wide, for example, with the whites showing? If so, they may very well be feeling uncertain or fearful. Or is your furbaby's face relaxed, without tension, and therefore indicating contentment? In pups, this can even be in the form of what is often referred to as a smile or even "happy face", and is indeed that open-mouthed, tongue-lolling expression of joy. On the other hand, are you seeing furrowed brows, or other tense muscles on your kitty or pup's face? If so, they may very well be unhappy or irritated, meaning they might very well appreciate a little space or alone time. As I'm sure all furbaby parents know, cats and dogs can experience emotions just like their humans. So, don't forget to be aware of that, and to observe them for signs of what they might be feeling.
