Tabby Tuesday

As many of you probably already know, Thimble is our resident model. She loves the camera. Then again, it loves her just the same. That being said, Thimble is almost always a willing and eager participant in photo shoots. This time around, she agreed to strike a pose for Tabby Tuesday.


Thimble is quite proud of the classic tabby "M" on her cute little brow. Here, would you like a nice little side shot of it, too?


We want to wish a happy Tuesday to all of our friends, tabby and not tabby!

Our Tip of the Day:
Today's tip is yet another reminder on how to keep an eye out for signs of an ailing furbaby. This tip focuses on the mouth. A cat or dog's mouth can give some relatively obvious signs that something is amiss. For example, if a furbaby shows an unwillingness or inability to chew or eat, this is clearly a sign that something is off, especially for furbabies who are typically more ravenous eaters. Other signs to watch out for include if a previously tidy eater begins having food or excess saliva falling from their mouth, either during or after eating. Such an issue could arise from infected, fractured, or otherwise damaged teeth, as well as a mass in the mouth or even painful gums. And don't forget about that breath, as foul breath could indicate an infection in the mouth or any number of other issues. Any such oral symptoms could of course arise from diseases or injuries directly related to the mouth, but they could also be a sign that something is amiss elsewhere in the body. In cats, for example, kidney disease can lead to characteristic malodorous breath. So, whether it be a bad breath, difficulty eating, or any other abnormality, do be sure to consult a veterinarian with any concerns about your furbaby.

Thimble is a gorgeous model. I love that M, sh should join the tabby cat club. Adorable drawing too. And that is an excellent tip, it is so easy to miss things in their mouths.

Ooh, I want to put some smoochies on Thimble's 'M'! And now you've got me thinking of taking Angel to a veterinary dentist, since she grinds her teeth and always has.

Mee-Yow! This is our first visit to your blog. We wanted to say hi and introduce ourselves. We are four cats, one woofie and two giant horses who live in France. Would you like to be friends?

Thimble is our favorite supermodel! We're no stranger to dental problems around here ... Bear's lost a ton of teeth even though I brush them every day. I've tried to start brushing Ellie's teeth once a week - but more toothpaste ends up on her face than on her teeth!

Wally says that if you look at that M the right way, it's really a W. For Wally. :)
