Thankful Thimble Thursday: Belly Dance?

Hello, friends! I'm sorry for all the late posts this week. The going is getting really rough at my work place, but that's okay. Here we are now, ready for Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

Today, a little tabby girl named Thimble is grateful for a lot of things. Such as, how cute she is.

Thimble's also thankful for belly rubs, which always make her do a little dance.

Thimble would like to know if this is the same as a belly dance?

Thimble also wants to know if her kitty friends out there like belly rubs as much as she does? She knows that belly rubs are a no-no for a lot of her kitty siblings, but as for Thimble, she loves them.

Happy Thursday!

Flashback Doodle of the Day

Tip of the Day

With February being Spay/Neuter Awareness Month, we are giving some tips on this significant topic over the next couple of days. Today, we have a few words on how a kitty or pup's health can benefit from being spayed or neutered. Just to give a couple of examples, spaying a female cat or dog can eliminate the risk of uterine cancer or infection, and can reduce the risk of mammary cancer. For male cats and dogs, neutering can eliminate the concern of testicular cancer and can reduce the risk of diseases of the prostate. Of course, pregnancy itself can be risky, so a spayed cat or dog is also free of unexpected pregnancy and the dangers that come with it. There are a great many other health benefits that can potentially result from having a cat or dog spayed or neutered. Due to their reduced risks of various diseases, spayed or neutered cats and dogs are sometimes more likely to live longer, healthier lives. So, for the above reasons and more, spay and neuter your pets! And, as we mentioned yesterday, also consider assisting with or donating to the neutering efforts of feral colonies, so that these furbabies can also live as healthy of lives as possible.

Thimble, how delightful that you enjoy belly rubs!
CB enjoys a rub when he's mostly asleep; when he's wide awake, he's a bear trap.

Mikey used to like belly rubs, but none of the other cats do. Thimble, i'm glad you enjoy them, it's one of life's guilty pleasures to be able to give a cat a tummy rub.

Thimble is a cutie. My Rosie loves tummy rubs, but she does not like her head touched. Cute drawing and great tips. XO
