Another good thing about today? The Friendly Fill-Ins challenge, hosted by our friends over at 15andmeowing and McGuffy's Reader!
We really liked the looks of the fill-ins our hosts created for us this week.
1. My favorite line from a film is _________.
2. Other than blogs, a website I visit often is _________.
3. When I feel down, I _________.
4. If I could _________, I would _________.
Aren't those great? I don't know how great my answers are, but I sure enjoyed mulling these over.
1. My favorite line from a film is, "Just keep swimming."
(I have a lot of favorite movie quotes, and even more favorite book quotes. But, this is the one that jumped into my head for today. It's from Finding Nemo. The message is simple, but also perfectly profound.)
2. Other than blogs, a website I visit often is Pinterest.
(I didn't jump on the Pinterest bandwagon until just a few months ago. I didn't think I'd like it all that much, but I was wrong. I love scrolling through Pinterest, filling up my boards of cute kitties and cute puppies, finding new recipes, arts and craft ideas, discovering new books to read, and so on and so forth.)
3. When I feel down, I cuddle a furbaby.
(Or two, or three, or four. For me, furbabies are just about the best medicine there is.)
4. If I could find a forever home for all cats and dogs, I would do it in a heartbeat.
(I know I'm not the only one who feels this way.)
So, who knows what's up next? If you guessed Eddy, you're right!
The active little lady sat still just long enough to let me snap a couple of shots of her in a state of rest. It didn't last long, and I anticipated that, so there was no time for changing any camera settings for much of a decent shot. But, when it comes to Eddy, if you get a shot, you just take it. Beggars can't be choosers.
In case you're wondering what that white thing is on the floor in front of her, it's one of Evan's tufts, a product of a short grooming session. Eddy thought it made a great toy.
Happy Friday, everybuddy!

Our Tip of the Day:
While seasonal shedding and even the occasional lost hair tuft are normal in our furbabies, excessive hair loss, such as in the form of large clumps of hair, could be a sign of something more serious. Of course, parasites such as fleas can cause hair loss, as can the fungal infection known as ringworm. Allergies to food or other products can also lead to a balding kitty or pup. The list doesn't end there, though, as poor nutrition and even certain diseases, such as those of the thyroid, could cause your furbaby to lose hair in an abnormal abundance. A cat or dog's coat is often one of the first things to be neglected in the case that their body is fighting an ailment, and so symptoms such as hair loss, dull fur, and feathered fur from dehydration can often be seen in the case of an unwell furbaby. For such reasons, always monitor the state of your furbaby's coat. Is there an abnormal abundance of shedding? Is their fur clumping, or are they losing an excessive amount of tufts? Is the fur dull, dry, or oily? If you notice any such changes, do be sure to note them to your veterinarian.
