Sunday Selfie

Happy Sunday, friends! How about a selfie from Thimble today?

After quite a few days of 90°F temperatures, we're back to more like 65°F. That means we can enjoy some window whiffies, and we're loving it.

Wishing you all lots of window whiffies!

Tip of the Day

Today's tip is all about windows, is one we've mentioned before, and is one that you all very likely already know, but we'll say it again anyway. To begin, before opening any windows, be sure to inspect screens and take any and all precautions to ensure that no furbabies escape from any open windows. If you have an escape artist, perhaps block their direct access to windows, such as by putting something in front of the window that will prevent them from getting right next to the screen. Also never leave furbabies unattended with an open window, but instead monitor them closely when windows are open. Perhaps this all sounds like extreme measures, but a lost furbaby is a devastating thing, and it is always better to be safe than sorry.

That's not all we have on those windows, though. Also keep in mind the health of your furbabies, and yourself, when windows are open. Does your furbaby, or yourself, have asthma? What about allergies? If your kitty or pup has any such respiratory issues, open windows might not be an ideal thing. Allergens, dust, dirt, and all sorts of debris can enter through the window screen with the aid of the wind. This debris can lead to asthma attacks, itching, scratching, and other potential side effects in furbabies who do have asthma, allergies, or other similar medical issues. So, though open windows can be very enticing when the weather is nice, never forget to take into consideration all potential side effects.

Looking good, Thimble! Your weather suddenly changed, too? We were near 90 earlier this week, and but today is in the high 40s. Too cold for window whiffies!

We love window whiffies. None here today, it is chilly and rainy. I like the drawing and Thimble is always adorable. Great tips too. XO

Enjoy those whiffies, Thimble. It will probably get warmer real soon.

Precious selfie! It's been nice and chilly here for days but the news just forecast 5 plus days of 90s by next weekend and I hate it already.

Your eyes are laser focused on something, i wonder what.

We have had a blessedly cool time here, too, and we are very happy.

You are a beauty Thimble! We don't have to worry about open windows much here in Florida, it's way too hot most of the year. Thankfully the few times we can open them we don't have anyone attempting to escape or have any other issues.
