Thankful Thimble Thursday

Hello, friends! We'll be sharing our weekly poem in the same post as our Friendly Fill-Ins challenge tomorrow. So, for today, let's get right to Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

Thimble is of course here to express some gratitude, and today she is especially thankful for her adorable face. I am also grateful for her adorable face.

Though Thimble is halfway wearing her furrowed brow in that photo, be assured that she is as sweet as sugar and wants nothing more than some cuddles and a belly rub. I myself am so very thankful for Thimble and all of my furbabies. We're also thankful for all of you wonderful friends of ours.


And now we have for you the fill-in statements for tomorrow's Friendly Fill-Ins challenge. My amazing co-host Ellen of 15andmeowing came up with the first two, and I came up with the second two.

1. A pleasant memory that I have from grade school is _________.

2. My plans this month include _________.

3. Please don't ask me to choose between _________ and _________.

4. In _________ years, I see myself _________.

We'll see you tomorrow, friends!

Flashback Doodle of the Day

Today's flashback doodle is another wishful autumn one, starring none other than my angels Sammy and Rosie.

Tip of the Day

Today's autumn pet safety tip is a repeat one all about those windows. After all, as the temperatures cool down this autumn, we might find ourselves craving some fresh air. Before opening any windows, though, 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 cool and crisp, never forget to take into consideration all potential side effects.
