H is for...

If you usually visit us on Thursday to read our wacky poem for Angel Sammy's Thoroughly Poetic Thursday challenge, we'll be posting that on Sunday. We're doing that only for the month of April, since the A to Z Challenge occurs every day in April except for Sundays. Our regular programming will return in May.

Speaking of the A to Z Challenge, are you ready for another letter of the alphabet?

We've reached the letter H. What's more, it's finally time for lunch in our theme of "A Day at Rosie's Restaurant". So, what meal is kicking off Rosie's lunch menu?

Would anyone like a serving of honey glazed ham?


Now, of course, Thimble is ready for Thankful Thursday.

What is Thimble thankful for today? She's grateful that she's even adorable in bloopers. Thimble doesn't often get to share bloopers, since Eddy is the resident blooper queen. So, Thimble wants you all to see her bloopers from last week's photo shoot. She wants to make sure you all know just how cute she is even in bloopers.

Ready for Thimble's blooperest blooper of all?

Thimble hopes her blurry bloopers made someone smile today! We wish you all health and happiness!


Last but not least we have the fill-ins for tomorrow's Friendly Fill-Ins challenge. Ellen of 15andmeowing is the mastermind behind the first two, and I came up with the second two.

1. I am never _________.

2. For Easter (or Passover) this year, I will _________.

3. I would want the Easter Bunny to leave me a basket filled with _________.

4. When times get tough, _________.

We'll see you tomorrow!

Tip of the Day

Let's talk about ham today. We've talked about ham before, and we've talked about it more than once. Can you remember what we've said about ham in the past? The long and short of it is that it would be best to avoid feeding ham to your kitty or pup. While a tiny taste isn't likely to do much damage, ham still poses a variety of risks to our kitties and pups. Two of the primary dangers of ham are the salt content and fat content, which could lead to not only general intestinal distress, but also potential pancreatitis. Pancreatitis can cause vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, dehydration, weight loss, and overall can be a very serious and potentially deadly disease.

The salt and fat content of ham are not the only possible dangers of ham. Ham prepared with other spices, herbs, preservatives, or any hazardous ingredients could pose other risks. For example, yesterday we mentioned the dangers of garlic and onion, which can cause serious issues such as anemia for cats and dogs. That means ham prepared with garlic or onion has the potential for causing this sort of ailment as well. All in all, to be on the safe side, avoid feeding ham to your furbaby.

Luv your bloopers Thimble! And I could definitely go for some ham once I feel better.

Love your drawing, but we would like our ham without the honey glaze please! Well, I mean our mom, she doesn't like honey glaze on stuff. We never get any ham because she says it is not good for us.
