Thankful Thimble Thursday: Trees, Trees, Trees

It's Thursday, and Thimble is of course ready for angel Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

Today, the tabby girl is grateful for trees of all types.

Thimble loves her cat trees, she loves her Christmas trees, and she loves watching out the windows at the wildlife in the outdoor trees.

Thimble and all of us here are also grateful for you wonderful friends of ours!

Tip of the Day

We're going to backtrack a little bit and give one more Christmas tree safety tip, based on something that we do here at our house. If you want to have lights on your tree, but burns or electrocution are a concern with your furbaby around, or if you are concerned about electrical fires, then perhaps consider using battery-operated lights for your tree. Our tree seen in the images above is lit by battery-operated lights. These lights come with a remote control, with a timer option, making it easy to turn them on and off, all without the risks of electrical cords. Also, to save on the cost of batteries, I use rechargeable batteries.

That all being said, though, always base such decisions on your individual furbaby and his or her personal behaviors. The battery pack for the lights we use is very sturdy as well as well-hidden, and the kitties and pup at my house have never proven themselves chewers of such things. For this reason, my particular furbabies accessing the batteries is highly unlikely. Nevertheless, batteries can indeed be dangerous if chewed or consumed, so do keep this in mind when shopping around for anything that is battery-operated. But, if your furbaby is a cord chewer, or if you have any other concerns of the electrical nature, then perhaps look into battery-operated or other safe lighting options for your Christmas tree.
