Thankful Thimble Thursday and the Letter V

It's another day of the April A to Z Challenge, this time with the letter V.

Our alphabetical theme is still of course All Things Cat, which means we're sharing doodles of random items shaped like cats. Today, for the letter V, we have for you a vinyl record.

We're going to ignore the fact that that record clearly wouldn't work on that turntable. Since it's shaped like a cat, it's an oversight I'm willing to make.


Now, Thimble is of course ready for Angel Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

Thimble found out that Eddy will be sharing bloopers tomorrow, and so she wanted to participate in that as well. That's why, today, Thimble is grateful that she's adorable even in outtakes. Here, you can see that fact for yourself.

Though it might be blurry there in that last photo, Thimble would like to remind you all that you're free to tickle her little tummy. She loves a good belly rub.


Last but not least, 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 find _________ offensive.

2. _________ is a good way to make some extra cash.

3. _________ makes me feel like I can accomplish anything.

4. I could see myself naming a cat or dog _________.

We'll see you tomorrow, friends!

Tip of the Day

Today's spring safety tip is another one we've very recently mentioned, but that we'll repeat again. It is to always be aware and cautious of the potential dangers of various fertilizers, pesticides, and other such chemicals that are often used this time of the year. If you plan to use any such products, do your research and try to avoid using potentially toxic variations. No matter what kind you use, though, to be safe, keep any such products stashed safely away from your furbaby's reach.

But, this tip also goes beyond what you might be using in your own personal environment. For pups or kitties who go outdoors, you should take into consideration that unfamiliar yards, parks, and other such areas may use products that could have toxic effects if walked through, ingested, and so forth. When out and about with your furbaby, or even just yourself, try to avoid areas where you know or think any unsafe chemicals are used. When you arrive back at home after a walk or other excursion, wipe off paws and shoes, so that you can do your best to remove any traces of fertilizers, pesticides, or other chemicals. There is no such thing as being too careful when it comes to the health and safety of our furbabies, so do all that you can to keep your furbaby protected from potentially dangerous chemicals this time of year, and all year round.

I love the drawing, so cute. And Thimble is a beauty I would pay to rub that tummy. Great tips too. XO

Just make the stylus arm a bit longer on the player itself and it would turn. Probably.

Anyway, Thimble is always beautiful.

Yes you are, Thimble! And I would certainly buy that record!
