Thankful Thimble Thursday: Waiting for the Man in Red

It's Thursday, which of course means Thimble is here to participate in angel Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

The little tabby girl is grateful that Santa Paws will be visiting very soon. She knows she's been a good girl, and so she expects the jolly old man in red to act accordingly.

Thimble is of course diligently watching out the window, in case Santa decides to visit early. All of this gets her so very excited, and we'll even share some adorable bloopers to prove that point.

Are all of you as excited for Christmas as Thimble is? She's wishing you a festive day!


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. I'll be _________ for Christmas.

2. I am eager to see _________ open his/her gift.

3. 'Twas the night before Christmas and I _________.

4. I _________ the day after Christmas.

We'll see you tomorrow, friends!

Festive Flashback Doodle of the Day

My intention is to finish a bunch of my Christmas works-in-progress and share mostly all new doodles this weekend and throughout the 12 Days of Christmas, which start on Christmas Day. For today, though, we have another festive flashback doodle. This one, however, shares the same kind of special guest as our Christmas card for this year. Though many of you have hopefully received our card in the mail for this year, we'll still be sharing it on our blog on Christmas Day. For now, though, here's this little something.

Tip of the Day

Yesterday we discussed unplugging Christmas lights and removing other potentially dangerous decor from your furbaby's reach in the event that they are not being supervised. Festive decor is not the only danger this time of year, though. As we all probably know, lots of snacks and treats come out of the woodwork this time of year. What's more, a lot of these treats are not healthy for our kitties and pups. Chocolate, alcohol, fatty foods, and excess sugar and salt, just to name a couple, can all pose risks to the health of our furbabies. For this reason, if you need to leave your house or in any way leave your furbaby unattended, ensure that they do not have access to your Christmas goodies. This could relate to any number of situations. For example, keep in mind snack bowls, food being prepared or cooling on the kitchen counter, a full table on Christmas Day, and even dirty dishes in the sink or food in the trash bin. So, if your furbaby is going to be left alone and unsupervised, remove food from the counters and table, hide snack bowls, clear out the sink, and take out or hide the trash. Our kitties and pups might find some of our Christmas treats just as delicious as we find them, but that doesn't mean it's healthy for them to snack on them. So, especially in the event that you will not be home or available to monitor your kitty or pup, think ahead and remove all food from your furbaby's reach.

Such a cutie. I know Santa will be good to you. Nice drawing and great tips too. That is one of the reasons I lock the kitties up in bedrooms during our parties -they would be into all the snacks. :)
