Tabby Tuesday

Happy Tabby Tuesday, friends!

Thimble's almost always game for posing for the camera. She is, after all, the resident model. Today, she made sure to show off some of her favorite stripes. Now, though, she's curious which of her stripes you friends of ours like the most. Do you like her cheek stripes? Or perhaps those classic "M" tabby stripes on her forehead? Or, what about those little stripes there on her arm?

Is anyone else showing off their stripes today? We bet lots of you have some good-looking stripes. Then again, we also know that there some pretty darn good-looking torties, tuxies, toesies, tummies, and all sorts of cuties out there on this Tuesday.

Wishing a terrific Tuesday to all!

Our Tip of the Day:

As we mentioned yesterday, we're dedicating October to tips all about Halloween. We already discussed keeping wreaths, garland, and other similar Halloween decor either pet-friendly or out of your furbaby's reach. Today, we're expanding on this with a tip that we've covered in a variety of ways in past tips. We're talking, yet again, about candles. This time of year, candles often become more popular because of cool weather, and because of the delicious scents often associated with this season of autumn. What's more, candles often come into play when we carve jack-o'-lanterns. Jack-o'-lanterns can pose just as much of a risk as open candle flames. Curious paws or faces, or even wagging tails, could be burned candles out in the open or those in a pumpkin. Fire could also result if a kitty or pup knocks over a candle, or a jack-o'-lantern containing a candle.

For the above reasons and more, light plain candles or those in jack-o'-lanterns only if they are safely out of reach of your furbaby, even if that means lighting them in a room not accessible to your kitty or pup. It is also of course best that candles or jack-o'-lanterns be left lit only if you are available to monitor the situation. If you are not able to keep an eye on a candle, jack-o'-lantern, and nearby furbabies, then do not leave any flames lit.

Candles and jack-o'-lanterns can make for very festive decor. However, flames can of course pose a risk to your furbaby, and also to your home in general. Therefore, always put the safety of your furbaby and everyone else in the home first when it comes to fiery festivities this time of year.

Thimble, you wear your stripes well. We love them all. :)

Thimble, we love the M tabby stripes the best. But they are all good. And the pumpkin doodle is just terrific. Well done

Stripes of all kinds are lovely, and is Rosey’s pumpkin trying to play hide-and-seek?

My favorite candles are the battery operated ones — so much safer.

Love your Tabby Tuesday post. I used to have a Striped Tabby Cat before she died on 9-11-2015. One reason I love your posts.

Hey Thimble. If we had to pick a stripe we liked the most it would probably be the "M" tabby stripes on her forehead, but they are all good. Thanks for sharing the lovely doodle. Have a wonderful Tabby Tuesday.

All of your stripes are magnificent but we're especially partial to the "M" on your forehead...that stands for Mudpie, right?

Pam and Teddy said...

Oh you certainly have beautiful stripes and your "M" is so well defined....we tabbies have all sorts of "M"s but it all means the same - ME ME ME!!!! HAHA

Love, Teddy
