Friendly Fill-Ins

Hello and happy Friday, friends! We're ready for the Friendly Fill-Ins challenge, and we'd love for you 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. My favorite character from a film, TV, or book is _________.

2. The one word I would use to describe myself is _________.

3. If I had to give you my best piece of advice, I would tell you _________.

4. _________ will never compare with _________.

My answers are below in bold.

1. My favorite character from a film, TV, or book is Eeyore.
(To be honest, Eeyore from the Winnie the Pooh franchise is probably not my all-time favorite character. I don't even know if I have one of those. But I have always loved Eeyore, all the way from when I was a very young child. After all, he embodies what I do often root for or find endearing in a character, and that is the lovable grump, or the underdog.)

2. The one word I would use to describe myself is me.
(Is that corny or what? But, it does relate to one of my favorite quotes, and that is Oscar Wilde's, "Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.")

3. If I had to give you my best piece of advice, I would tell you to be yourself.
(After all, Oscar Wilde was onto something. I'd also tell you to get yourself a cat, or a dog, or some furry friend. They're the best. Hence my #4 below.)

4. Life without cats will never compare with life with cats.
(Cats, and all animals, bring some much happiness to a person's life. I'm sure I don't have to tell any of you that.)

Now, are you ready for your Eddy fix. It's another one of those days when, well, Eddy just couldn't look at the camera.

Sorry, friends, but there have been snowflakes in need of watching, so that's where Eddy's attention has been.

Here, we'll give you a closer look at that adorable face of Eddy's to tide you over.

Warm wishes to all!

Flashback Doodle of the Day

Tip of the Day

Today's National Pet Poison Awareness Month tip is about the toxic gas known as carbon monoxide (CO). CO is not only dangerous to us humans, but also incredibly dangerous to our kitties, pups, and other animals. CO most often results from car exhaust, fire/smoke, and when generator systems fail. When a large amount of CO is inhaled, this can lead to cells in the body becoming deprived of oxygen. CO poisoning can thereby result in life-threatening effects on the cardiovascular system, neurological system, and other important systems of the body.

Needless to say, do all that you can to prevent both your furbaby's and your own exposure to CO. Set up CO monitors in your home, and ensure that they are always properly functioning. Of course also ensure that you have functioning fire and smoke alarms. There are all-in-one alarms on the market that detect fire, smoke, and CO. In addition to this, properly maintain any generators that you have, and do not use them if they are in any way malfunctioning. Also, of course, do not let your kitty or pup into a closed, unventilated garage where a car or other motor vehicle is running. CO can be a silent killer, so do all that you can to protect your furbaby, as well as yourself, from it and its deadly effects.
