Thankful Thimble Thursday

It's Thursday, which means we have some gratitude to share for Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

Today, tabby girl Thimble is thankful for sunshine, and for her adorable little face.

This here human is grateful for the same things, as well as for Evan's urethral obstruction recovery, and the overall good health of him and all of my furbabies and family. I'm also thankful that I'll be getting my car back today, all fixed up and ready to drive again. Thimble is admittedly not thankful for the car, as she knows that's the thing that takes her to the vet every year, but I can't really blame her for that.

Well wishes to all of you friends of ours!


Last but not least, let's share 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 recent earworm I had was _________.

2. I have no interest in reading _________.

3. I would give _________ in exchange for _________.

4. _________ is my favorite scent.

We'll see you tomorrow, friends!

Flashback Doodle of the Day


Tip of the Day

Today's tip relating to the care of ferals and other outdoor cats is to be aware of where you store potentially dangerous products. Antifreeze, for example, is toxic to cats and dogs, as you all certainly know. Make sure that you are not only storing such products well out of the reach of your own indoor kitties and pups, but also well out of the reach of ferals, strays, and even wildlife. Even if you have it in the garage or shed, do consider keeping it tucked well away, such as in a cabinet, so that nothing can reach it. Especially if you have your garage or shed door open at times, there is the chance that a cat or wild animal will be able to make their way inside and thereby have access to any products that are not hidden away. Also keep this in mind with pesticides, fertilizers, cleaners, oil, and other potentially dangerous products. Think of whether even an unsuspecting outdoor visitor might make their way into your garage, shed, or other storage area, and hide away anything concerning or questionable just in case.

Thimble, send some of that sunshine our way, please!
You are a cutie pie, and we are chuffed that Evan is better.

Thimble is a cutie. Glad Evan is improving, I love the drawing, gnomes are cute. The garage we go to has 2 cats and I worry about them getting into antifreeze.

Thimble, you are beautiful. I'm praying Evan stays well.
