Thimble doesn't mind that her selfie is shiny if it means she has a sun puddle to bask in. We hope the sun is shining for all of our friends out there!
Doodle of the Day
I scribbled up another little piece of concept art for today. Among other things, there's of course yet another kitty in this one, but this kitty is a bit, well, different.
That there is a robotic kitty, which I prefer to call a robokitty. Believe it or not, this is not the first time I've doodled up a robokitty. For anyone who might remember, a couple years ago I doodled up and shared here on our blog at least one robokitty. What inspired me to scribble up this robokitty? None other than Thimble! When Thimble was a tiny kitten, she had the gruffest, most mechanical sounding meow. She still has a meow that sort of sounds like that, but nothing as gruff and robotic as when she was just a few weeks old. I got in the habit of calling kitten Thimble RoboKitty, and now I enjoy drawing all sorts of robokitties. So, there's that.
***Tidbit of the Day
Today's tidbit relating to COVID-19 and our furbabies regards the symptoms of COVID-19 when it comes to our kitties and pups. During these times, it might be best to know the symptoms of COVID-19 in pets, especially in the event you think your kitty or pup was in any way exposed to the novel coronavirus. Symptoms include coughing, lethargy, and decreased appetite, but of course are not limited to just those. Overall symptoms will depend on the individual animal and their case. Should you see any concerning symptoms in your cat or dog, contact your veterinarian. As we've mentioned before, there are only a few rare cases of animals, mostly cats, contracting COVID-19, but it has happened. As we've also said before, it has been deemed that animals are more likely to get it from us than us get it from them, so it doesn't hurt to know the symptoms just in case.
