Thankful Thimble Thursday: A Feathered Fourth Day of Christmas

It's Thursday, and Thimble is of course excited to participate in angel Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

Today's, Thimble has some bloopers to share to express her gratitude.

Those little feathered birdies are just two of the toys the kitties received from their Secret Santa Paws. We'll very soon be sharing the full jackpot the kitties hit, along with the identity of our Secret Santa Paws. For now, though, you'll have to excuse Thimble for only sharing these bloopers today, because she was so thankful for and was having so much fun with her new toys that she simply couldn't pose for the camera.

Thimble and the other kitties can't wait to show you the rest of their Secret Santa Paws goodies. And Thimble hopes you're all having as much fun as she is on this Fourth Day of Christmas!


Now, 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. The best part of 2023 was _________.

2. My focus word for 2024 is _________.

3. A new year is a great time to _________.

4. You don't have to wait for a new year to _________.

We'll see you tomorrow, friends!

Tip of the Day

We're starting a series of tips on how you can assist strays and ferals during the cold winter months. Today's tip regards feeding strays and ferals, and it is to make sure you understand the pros and cons of feeding dry versus moist food during the winter months. Dry food often takes more energy than moist food to digest, and animals need to conserve as much energy as possible to stay warm in the winter. However, that being said, moist food that is not immediately eaten can freeze during the winter months due to its high moisture content. For this reason, it is typically best to ensure that dry food is offered to strays and ferals in the winter months, as it will not freeze and therefore will be readily available even after sitting out for some time. All in all, though, it is possible and often beneficial to feed both dry and moist food to outdoor strays and ferals. Tomorrow we will further discuss how to successfully feed moist food to strays and ferals in the winter.
