Thoroughly Poetic Thankful Thimble Thursday

We've reached another Thursday! That means it's yet again the eve of Friday, as well as time for the Thoroughly Poetic Thursday challenge, hosted by none other than Angel Sammy and Teddy.

Though this here human has next to no experience with poetry, we're doing our best and are enjoying this challenge plenty! Continuing on with our usual theme, we have someone new for you all to meet today.

O’Malley the Ophthalmologist

I can see,
And you can see,
And for that we can thank Dr. O’Malley.
Whether they be brown, green, or bluer than the skies,
O’Malley the Ophthalmologist will take good care of your eyes.
Having trouble reading your book?
Let Dr. O’Malley take a look.
He’ll test how far you can see,
And how tired your eyes just might be.
You really need not fear,
And certainly don’t shed even a single tear.
After all, O’Malley the Ophthalmologist is the best of the best.
He’ll put your eyes through nothing but a painless test,
And after that will give them a rest.
Dr. O’Malley will know if you’re nearsighted or farsighted,
And then he’ll happily help you get that righted.
Dr. O’Malley will write you a prescription indeed,
If it’s a lovely pair of glasses that you need.
So do let O’Malley the Ophthalmologist take a look at your eyes,
For his knowledge and skill has earned him many a prize.

Our Dr. O'Malley was inspired by none other than Patty O'Malley, whom you can visit by simply clicking there on his name! And, here is O'Malley the Ophthalmologist in doodle form:

Of course, Thursday would not be complete without Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

Today, Thimble is of course bringing you our thankfuls. She is thankful for sunny weather and window views.

Thimble is also grateful for snoozies in the sun (snoozing while sitting up is perfectly normal, right?).

Do you see housemate Toby's whiskers yet again photobombing Thimble's shots here? Thimble is having trouble feeling thankful for Toby's photobombing skills, but she is nevertheless of course thankful to have family and furiends, like Toby and all of you!

Wishing everybuddy a terrific Thursday!

Our Tip of the Day:
Our next tip theme revolves around our furbabies eating and drinking habits. To start this off today, we’re here to remind you to be cognizant of what type of bowl you are using for your furbaby, most especially the material out of which the bowl is made. When possible, steer clear of plastic bowls. This is in large part because plastic can be easily scratched, and these scratches can harbor all sorts of bacteria and the like. This can lead to issues such as feline chin acne. Stainless steel bowls, or even ceramic, are often recommended. If you do use or have to use plastic bowls for any reason, be sure to clean them frequently, and to replace them as needed, such as if you notice scratches. This will help prevent bacterial growth and issues such as feline chin acne. Eating and drinking are of course crucial to our furbabies’ daily lives, so do be sure to pay attention even to details such as the types of bowl they are using.

What a great poem! Dr. O'Malley is quite the purrfect doctor. :) Thimble, enjoy your window whiffies...despite Toby's efforts to nose his way in.

Thank you for all the words of encouragement about Phoebe, you are giving me hope. Great poem and drawing of Patty O'Malley-nice choice :) Thimble is gorgeous, even when being photobombed. And that is an excellent tip. Most of mine seem to get chin acne when they use plastic. I only have glass and stainless for them, but I was letting some lick the butter off my breakfast plate and it took me a while to make the connection.

Dr. O'Malley sounds like a purrfect ophthalmologist.:)

And whisker photobombing ... that's a good one!

Thank you so much for your kind comments and purrs about our sweet angel Zoe's passing. We are so grateful for you, dear friends. Much love and hugs.

Dr. O'Malley can certainly see clearly...when there is a bowl of food to eat! Nothing gets between him and chow, believe me. Great poem, and adorable drawing. The Doctor and Thimble have a lot of the same coloring, even their eyes.
