Woof Woof Wednesday

Today, we have for you a couple of candid and bloopery shots of what happens when pup Astrid and a little tabby girl named Thimble battle over the window seat.

More often than not, Thimble wins the window seat. Astrid may have something like 75 lbs on Thimble, but the pup still just can't seem to win. Luckily, Thimble is usually willing to share, so Astrid can sit next to the little tabby.

Happy Wednesday, friends!


Flashback Doodle of the Day

I was going through old doodles and found this one from 2019. I remember scribbling it up as silly commentary on how there's so little time for all of the things I want to draw, write, and read. That still goes today, but I've been trying to use the last couple days of June to try to get ahead on both creative and business endeavors so that come July, that being tomorrow, I can hopefully be well on my way to sort of having my life together.

Tip of the Day

Is your kitty a chewer? Do they put anything and everything in their mouth? While we're sure you all know to keep potentially dangerous plants out of your home, do you have safe or fake plants on which your kitty chews? If your cat goes outdoors, do they tend to eat grass on the lawn? If the answers to any of these are yes, and if medical issues have been ruled out for any abnormal behaviors, do perhaps consider keeping some cat grass growing in your home. Even if any of the above statements aren't true of your cat, you can of course still offer cat grass. Cat grass is a safe plant on which many cats enjoy chewing, and which also serves as a source of fiber than can help keep things moving sufficiently through the GI tract. For example, cat grass might be able to help prevent issues with hairballs.

You can purchase cat grass that has already been grown and is ready for your kitty's chompers, or you can grow your own. It is relatively simple to grow, and is also typically cheap. So, do consider looking into keeping cat grass in your home, both for your kitty's entertainment as well as for their health.

How sweet of Astrid to let Thimble win. Cute drawing. And excellent tips. My niece's cat Nixon was a chewer in his younger days; he chewed through many phone chargers and spaghetti straps on her clothes.

What sweeties you are Astrid and Thimble. Thimble, if you can teach our cats how to share, I'd be grateful - MOL!

We're glad to know Thimble and Astrid sometimes share. :)

It does not surprise me that Thimble is willing to share as long as Astrid remembers who is the boss.
