A Tardy Sunday Selfie

Hello, friends! For the first time in years, I almost didn't get a post put up for today. Shame on me. Some unexpected work showed up in front of me this weekend, and things just took a tiny little major detour. As I mentioned recently, my workplace will soon be interviewing a promising candidate to fill the void we have there, and then hopefully things can begin to return to some semblance of normal.

Anyway, since I showed up so late today, we're just going to throw in a photo of a cute kitty and call that good just for today. I'm working on our posts for at least the early part of this week now, in hopes of getting back on track with our preferred blogging routine. We really enjoy blogging over here, so we're eager to get back to it like we used to be able to. We'll get there.

So, here's a bright and sunny Thimble for you all.

And how about a flashback doodle to make this post frightfully festive?

Tip of the Day

We're on the 10th day of our 31 days of Halloween tips. Now, we simply couldn't go this entire Halloween month without mentioning none other than pumpkins! As most of you likely already know, pumpkin can make for a healthy treat for a kitty or pup. Plain, cooked pumpkin can be an excellent source of fiber. This can help to keep the bowels regular, and so it could be something to keep in mind for those furbabies with irregular bowel movements. Pumpkin and the fiber it provides can also help move hairballs more easily through those kitty intestinal tracts. Fiber, such as that from pumpkin, can also help a kitty or pup feel full for longer, which means that it can also potentially aid in weight loss. All of these benefits are on top of the fact that pumpkin is also high in a variety of beneficial nutrients, such as vitamin A and vitamin C.

That all being said, do of course ensure that you only feed your furbaby cooked pumpkin of the plain variety. You can feed your furbaby pumpkin puree from a can, of course ensuring that it contains no spices or other added ingredients. You can also cook up your own pumpkin and feed it to your kitty or pup as a treat. What's more, these days, there are many types of dry and moist foods, as well as treats, that contain pumpkin as an ingredient. These such foods might assist certain furbabies with bowel regularity or weight loss. Of course, if you have any questions or concerns regarding your furbaby's diet and digestion, discuss options such as pumpkin with your veterinarian.
