A Selfie for the Father Figure

We were going to share with you some selfies of the new kids today. But, then we remembered that today is Father's Day! Not that the kittens couldn't share some selfies for Father's Day, but one of the older furbabies, who really adores her grandpa, really wanted to share a selfie in honor of him.

The furbabies around here don't have a dad, but their grandpa is one of their most favorite people (I'm going to say this while pretending that Eddy doesn't hide from her grandpa every time he shows up at the door). So, to wish her grandpa a happy Father's Day, none other than Thimble snapped a selfie just for him. Grandpa has been known to ooh and aww over Thimble, and to tell her she's cute and pretty. Thimble knew, therefore, that her grandpa would just love to see an up close and personal glamour shot of her today for Father's Day.

There. Now Thimble's grandpa can ooh and aww over this Father's Day selfie that was snapped just for him. Enjoy, Grandpa!

All of the furbabies here wish their grandpa a happy Father's Day! Of course, this here human is wishing her dad a very happy Father's Day as well!

We are also wishing all of the dads out there a blessed Father's Day! Whether your kids have four legs or two, whether they're furry or humanoid, happy Father's Day to you!

P.S. Don't worry, you'll get to see some new pictures of the kittens soon!

Our Doodle of the Day:

You might have already guessed that this is the doodle this here human scribbled up for her dad. My dad loves to grill. Now, though, don't let this doodle fool you. He really is quite a master with the grill, and he does not allow any meals on the grill to suffer tragedy such as in that doodle above.

Our Tip of the Day:

We've talked about helping a new furbaby get used to resident cats and dogs, as well as children. In addition to all of that, of course also take into consideration a new furbaby's comfort and safety when you have guests over. Especially if the new cat, or new dog, is still getting acquainted with their new home, perhaps ensure they are somewhere safe, quiet, and secluded during a visit with guests. This way, they will not feel even more scared or try to escape when unfamiliar people enter their still new and unfamiliar surroundings. Of course, keeping a furbaby safe when guests come over is important whether the furbaby is new or a longtime resident.

Keep all of this in mind especially if you adopt a new cat or dog around a busy holiday, such as Christmas or Halloween. Knocks on the door, the doorbell ringing may, and guests coming and going may very well be more common during these times of the year. In addition, this also goes for if you are having home renovations done, or if any maintenance workers are frequently coming and going, or anything else of this sort. If visitors will be frequenting like this, and if a new furbaby is present and still acclimating to their new life, certainly take this into consideration and plan accordingly. Not only have a safe area ready for a new furbaby to spend their time, but, as needed, inform guests of your new furbaby and how this might affect their visit. The comfort and safety of a new furbaby in any situation is crucial to them adapting to a happy life in their new home. Again, though, take such care and precautions for any furbabies!
