Hello, friends! It's Thursday, and Thimble is ready for Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.
This week, the little tabby girl is grateful for TV time. After all, it means a warm lap to sit on. When Thimble's in the mood for lap time, that is.
We'll see you tomorrow, friends!
Today's doodle is a new one. Well, it's new as in you haven't seen it before, but not so new as in I scribbled it up back in June. It was the drawing I used for my dad's Father's Day card, and it's based on a show our family has been watching lately, which seems apt for the photos Thimble shared above. Anyway, the show I'm referencing is called Trailer Park Boys, and it's all shades of chaos that my family happens to find funny. More so, one of the characters loves cats, and so lots of kitty characters make appearances. One of the kitties is a specially abled cat with a unique foot, as you can hopefully tell in this here doodle.
The kitties watching the TV are two of my parents' cats. On the left is tuxie Talon, who happens to be my girl Thimble's litter mate of a brother. On the right is Kipper, a dilute orange tabby of a color that none of my art markers matched perfectly, but that there is the best I could find. Both of these kitties find it so fun to sit in front of the TV at my parents' house, so obviously they made it into the drawing.
Today is our last tip relating to those feline vet visits. This tip actually far more of a general one, though. Today's tip is to remember your veterinarians, vet techs, and all of the staff at your vet clinic on special occasions. Whether it be Christmas, Veterinarian Appreciation Day (June 18th), Veterinary Technician Week (the third week of October), or another similar day, do consider sending some appreciation to those at your veterinary clinic. You can send a simple card, some flowers, a basket of goodies, or anything that demonstrates your appreciation for all they've done for your furbaby and yourself. Sometimes, being a veterinarian or veterinary staff member is a thankless job, or one that is forgotten in the shuffle. So, if you appreciate what your veterinary clinic has done for any and all of your furbabies, then do consider being one of those grateful customers who expresses their appreciation.
