Friendly Fill-Ins

Hello and happy Friday! We're ready for the Friendly Fill-Ins challenge. Are you? Feel free to join us! My co-host Ellen of 15andmeowing came up with the first two fill-in statements, and I came up with the second two.

1. I am thankful for _________ and _________.

2. I look forward to eating _________ on Thanksgiving.

3. I didn't realize _________ until _________.

4. There's no shame in _________.

My answers are below in bold.

1. I am thankful for my human and furry family.
(I don't think this needs much of an explanation.)

2. I look forward to eating cranberries on Thanksgiving.
(Let me clarify that I'm on team jellied cranberry. Because nothing says Thanksgiving like a jiggly pile of gelatinized cranberries on your plate. And I love to mix them with ham. Is that weird? It's okay if it's weird. I can totally live with that.) 

3. I didn't realize how much I appreciate caring for special needs animals until I adopted Evan.
(I feel like I've given an answer very similar to this before, but it's true. I love all animals, but it wasn't until I met hind limb paralyzed Evan that I realized just how much it means to me to share my life with animals who are special needs, or specially abled, as I prefer to call it. There is just something so rewarding and inspiring about special little ones like my Evan.)

4. There's no shame in being a crazy cat lady.
(I've said this before. People often use the term crazy cat lady, or even just cat lady, like it's a bad thing. It's not a bad thing. I'm proud to be a crazy cat lady. It is, after all, exactly what I am.)

Now it's your turn!

Are you ready for your Eddy fix? Today Eddy wanted to share a flashback to express how happy she is about what we'll be doing next week.

That's right. Next week, the day after Thanksgiving, our Christmas trees will be going up. Eddy sure does love her Christmas tree. Honestly, do you see the look on her face in that photo? Here, let me give you a closer look.

Granted, Eddy has a year round Christmas tree in my bedroom, which is the room where she prefers to spend all of her time. But, I always deck it out a bit more at Christmastime, and that makes Eddy an extra enthusiastic Christmas tree climber.

Happy Friday, friends!

Flashback Doodle of the Day

Today's flashback doodle from 2018 is in honor of Thanksgiving, complete with the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade going on in the background. That's a Santa float going down the street out the window. I thought I'd clarify that, because I'm not entirely sure that's all that easy to decipher.

Tip of the Day

In yesterday's Thanksgiving tip, we mentioned how it might be best to keep those pecans and that pecan pie out of your furbaby's reach. Today, we're giving a reminder to be cautious with all nuts, especially if you're not sure how they might affect your furbaby. Almonds, walnuts, pistachios, macadamia nuts, and other nuts can all potentially lead to gastrointestinal upset, some potentially causing more severe reactions than others. The possibility and severity of a reaction also might depend on your particular furbaby, and their particular gastrointestinal tract. Some nuts, such as walnuts, macadamia nuts, hickory nuts, and the previously mentioned pecans, can also contain a toxin that affects the nervous system, especially if they become moldy. For reasons such as these, to be on the safe side, it is best to simply keep any nuts, and dishes containing nuts, out of your furbaby's reach. As always, it's better to be safe than sorry!

#4 is SO true! And Eddy looks incredibly happy :)

Those of us who are glad to be crazy cat people need to stick together (my Sweetie is crazier than i am, so it's not just the ladies).

Eddy is actually smiling at her tree, and i don't blame her.

Love the doodle!
