Yet Another Wednesday in the Window

Ready for another new yet so very familiar shot of Astrid and her nose in that beloved window? Yes? Good, because here you go.

Astrid got a little tired posing in her window.

It's just so difficult to keep those eyes open sometimes.

Happy Wednesday, friends!

Our Doodle of the Day:

That there doodle is inspired by the little tale of Thumblelina. Want to know a fun fact? That mini kitty in the doodle is based on Thimble, because her name first came about thanks to the character of Thumblelina. When Thimble was found and my family started tending to her as a kitten, she weighed less than half a pound. She was the runt of her litter and downright tiny. My mom was the one who first mentioned that she was like Thumblelina, and then that name reminded us of the word thimble, and then we figured that Thimble was a perfectly good name for a tiny kitten. So, Thimble!

Our Tip of the Day:

In these last couple days of National Pet Poison Awareness Month, we're going to summarize some tips on how to help keep your furbaby safe from potential poisons. First, as obvious as it is, we're here today to remind you to use doors or other obstacles to properly block your kitty or pup's access to potentially dangerous products or areas of the house. For example, if your bathroom, laundry room, or utility closet contain dangerous chemicals, such as detergents, then keep their doors securely closed to bar your furbaby's entrance. Similarly, keep the door to your garage shut, in order to keep your furbaby away from gasoline, antifreeze, and other dangers that might be found in the garage. If you have a shed and your furbaby goes outdoors, keep the shed's door securely closed, especially if it houses fertilizers, pesticides, or other potentially toxic products. And don't forget to consider your garden, where toxic plants might grow, or where dangerous chemicals might be used. In such cases, monitor your furbaby while outdoors, and block your kitty or pup's access to the garden, such as with a secure fence. In short, consider all areas of the house and yard where poisoning or danger might arise, and ensure proper safety against said dangers.
