Sunday Selfie

Today's selfie is a plain and simple one, and also a tad bit off-center. It's also, if I do say so myself, a downright adorable one. Thimble hopes you enjoy it!


We're wishing you all a fantastic Sunday!

Doodle of the Day

Today's doodle is not a blatant winter one like most of the ones we've been scribbling up. Nevertheless, it was created in December. Exactly a month ago to the day was my dad's birthday, and it's a tradition that I always doodle up a card for him. Since my Christmas doodles kept me from sharing anything non-Christmas in December, I thought today, exactly a month after my dad's birthday, would be a good time to share his birthday card. I hope no one is offended by the nature of this doodle. It was based off of an inside joke, which also happens to be the reality that is my dad's life with his 12 cats.

Tip of the Day

Today's tip relating to the care of ferals and other outdoor cats is to be aware of where you store potentially dangerous products. Antifreeze, for example, is toxic to cats and dogs, as you all certainly know. Make sure that you are not only storing such products well out of the reach of your own indoor kitties and pups, but also well out of the reach of ferals, strays, and even wildlife. Even if you have it in the garage or shed, do consider keeping it tucked well away, such as in a cabinet, so that nothing can reach it. Especially if you have your garage or shed door open at times, there is the chance that a cat or wild animal will be able to make their way inside and thereby have access to any products that are not hidden away. Also keep this in mind with pesticides, fertilizers, cleaners, oil, and other potentially dangerous products. Think of whether even an unsuspecting outdoor visitor might make their way into your garage, shed, or other storage area, and hide away anything concerning or questionable just in case.

Great selfie. I love the drawing too- too funny. I made a litter box cake once for the vet office when my niece worked there. I put a cake in a new litter pan and on the frosting I put crushed cookies to look like litter and melted some tootsie rolls in the microwave :)

Your selfie - being off center is very artistic - is wonderful. And your tip is important to remember.
