Sunday Selfie

Hello, friends!

Today being none other than the day of selfies, Thimble snapped a festive little shot of herself to share with you all.


For those who visit us frequently, you might remember that around here, Eddy is the resident Christmas tree climber. She is quite good at it. As along as there are no ornaments on the tree (ornaments now hang from garland attached to the wall), she causes no havoc. Did you know, though, that now Thimble has taken up Christmas tree climbing as well?

Don't tell Thimble I told you, but she is simply not the pro that Eddy is. Eddy knows to stay at the center of the tree in order to keep it from losing its balance and tipping. Thimble, though, she just flails herself at the tree and tries to climb the ends of the branches. There is much teetering and tottering during Thimble's wild antics, and so she usually has to be removed from the situation. Luckily, she allows for her removal from the tree, and also seems to only do this when I'm in the room to see it. I would get a photo of Thimble's arboreal adventures to share with you all, but I'm usually too busy having a heart attack.

That all being said, Thimble is of course sharing her Christmasy shot for the Sunday Selfies blog hop, hosted by the Kitties Blue over at The Cat on My Head.


Happy Sunday to all!

Our Tip of the Day:
Yesterday, we mentioned how to prepare your furbaby if you are leaving them to travel for the holidays. Today, we are starting a short series of tips on what to do if you are traveling with your furbaby. First and foremost, if you plan to take your furbaby with you on a trip this Christmas, or any time of the year, talk to your veterinarian. Discuss with them your furbaby's health and whether traveling is safe for them. Some furbabies, such as those who are geriatric or who are suffering from an illness, might not be good candidates for traveling, especially long distance. If you are in need of traveling with such a furbaby, though, have a detailed discussion with your veterinarian on what you must do to take all precautions to keep your furbaby as healthy and happy as possible during travels. In some cases, even for young and healthy kitties or pups, some form of sedation might be in their best interest for traveling. This is another detail that you must discuss with your veterinarian. It is always our furbaby's best interest that we must have in mind, so ask your veterinarian any and all questions you have regarding keeping your furbaby happy and healthy during travels.

I was the tree climber around here...so much so that I broke the branches in the tree. That didn't make the mom very happy. Now that I'm a little older, I don't feel the need to climb the tree, but I still love playing with the ornaments. ~Ernie

Well practice does make perfect. On the other paw, sometimes tree climbing is a spectator sport. Which is why I let the peep do it MOL

Very cute photo of Thimble. You kitties better stop tree climbing, Santa is watching you :) Adorable drawing. And excellent tips. Most cats don't travel well, but it seems like a lot of dogs enjoy it.

Tree climbing is an art. Some cats have it mastered and others don't. They both have fun though.

Have a purrfect Selfie Sunday. My best to your peeps. ♥

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

That reminds me so much of Eric and Flynn. Flynn would climb up through the middle and pop his head out at the top. Eric would try to climb up the outside and pull the lot over.

Goodness! Yes, Thimble's flailings sound heart attach worthy but so cute too. She indeed looks very festive here and very pretty too.

I took a look at your tip in yesterday's post for traveling and leaving kitties behind. Those are all very good ideas. I am definitely prepared but will miss them like crazy. Merry Christmas!

Hanging ornaments on garland has become one of our human's practices as well. Sawyer and Cooper took some interest in the tree in the beginning, but now we are all just ignoring it. Today's doodle is suer cute. Love Thimble's selfie. Those are terrific whiskers. Thanks for hopping.

I'd be too busy having a heart attack too! Mudpie has never tried any funny business with the tree, strangely enough!

None of us are tree climbers. Scratch that. None of us are Christmas tree climbers, I should say. My late sister, Beatrice, once climbed the Christmas tree, but that was years ago now. It was when she was young and light. Purrs.

Beautiful, festive selfie, Thimble! Oh, and no tree here to worry about.
