Thoroughly Poetic Thankful Thimble Thursday

We enjoy so many fun challenges and blog hops each week. One of these is the Thoroughly Poetic Thursday challenge, hosted by Angel Sammy and Teddy.

Today's rhyme time brings us to the letter R. So, are you ready to meet our R of a someone?

Ruby the Radio DJ

Do you have a favorite song?
It doesn't matter if your tune is short or long.
Whether it be a guitar ballad or a pop jingle,
Or even a famous one-hit single,
Ruby the Radio DJ can put it on the air.
She knows how to treat good music with great care!

Really, please, do not stall.
Give Ruby the Radio DJ a call.
She takes requests night and day,
And any song she will be happy to play.

Are you in the mood for jazz or blues?
Or perhaps one or two country tunes?
Do you prefer rock or pop?
Or maybe even a bit of hip hop?
No matter what music it is that you like,
Ruby will never tell you to take a hike.
She can mix songs of any kind,
For Ruby the Radio DJ is a musical mastermind.

To visit the real Ruby, just click on her name there! And, of course, here is Ruby the Radio DJ's little doodle:

Now, of course, Thimble is here for her time to shine. Literally, as we recently had ourselves a day of lovely sunshine.

Today, of course, the clouds and rain have returned. But, we'll just wait for the next chance we get to bask in the sun.

Thimble wants to share her happy sunny days for Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

We are all grateful for the sun when it shines. Then again, we're also thankful for the rain that makes things grow. And, as always, we also are so happy to have so much else for which to be thankful, including family and friends like all of you.

We are wishing all of our friends a beautiful day!

Our Tip of the Day:
We've talked about protein and fiber in pet food, and now we're moving on to fat. Fat, like other nutrients, plays important roles for both us humans and our cats and dogs. Fats are yet another source of energy for the body and its cells, they aid in healthy skin and coat, and they are also important for growth overall. In pet foods, some fats can come from the protein source, such as chicken and beef. However, there are also other potential sources of fats in our furbabies' food. Fats can of course come from oils, such as fish oils or plant oils. The important thing is to make sure that your furbaby's food includes good quality fat sources, and in a healthy balance. For example, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which often come from sources such as fish or plant oils or chicken fat, are very beneficial, but most importantly so in proper amounts. Less quality fats and oils would include lard and other similar ingredients, and therefore do be cautious if you see these on a pet food label. Of course, any fats in too large of quantities could lead to health concerns such as obesity, so even healthy fats should not be consumed in an overabundance. As we've said before, try to educate yourself on your cat or dog's health and the best nutrition for them, and of course discuss this with a veterinarian as needed.
