A Selfie for the Father Figure

The furbabies around here don't have a dad, but their grandpa is one of their most favorite people. A certain someone around here wanted to wish her grandpa a happy Father's Day with a selfie of her adorable face, and that someone is none other than Thimble. Thimble's grandpa has been known to ooh and aww over Thimble, and to tell her she's pretty darn cute. Thimble knew, therefore, that her grandpa would just love to see a glamour shot of her today for Father's Day.


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

All of the furbabies here are wishing 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!

Doodle of the Day:

Today's doodle is one I created specifically for my dad. As I've said before here on our blog, my dad used to read J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit to my sister and myself as a bedtime story. That is one of my earliest memories, and it's one I will always cherish. My dad, my sister, and I all still share a love for books and the fantasy genre, of course including The Hobbit. And all of that is why I doodled up this for my dad:


For those who don't know, what's meant to be emerging from that book there is a traditional hobbit house. Also, in case you were wondering, yes, my dad is a cat guy. He is, after all, owned by 12 cats.

Did you know?
Did you know some sources cite that male Siamese cats are the most likely feline fathers to express an interest in, or fondness towards, their kittens? As is the case with many species, most male cats don't display much interest in interacting with their kittens. As previously mentioned, though, some sources indicate that male Siamese cats are the most likely to break this mold, being the most likely to show affection toward their kittens.

A very bright, sweet selfie indeed. I'm with my dad right now, wedged between his thigh and the arm of the rocker as I help him post comments. Wonderful artwork as always.

Thimble, you are a touch of elegance. Your grandpa is a lucky one to get to spend Father's Day with a houseful of pussycats. Happy Father's Day Wishes for him! Purrs.

Great photo.....and hobbit doodle too! We celebrate Father's Day here with me always getting my Dad a card AND Mom making a "whatever you want for dinner" for Dad. My Dad takes me for longer outside on the leash walks than Mom does so he's my pal. HAHAHA Glad you enjoyed celebrating the "Fathers and Father figures" in your family on their special day.

Hugs, Teddy
