Thimble Cactus flowering accident how to pollinate?

Hi. I brought my thimble cactus inside just before temperatures fell below freezing, now it thinks it's late winter because of the temperature increase. Can I pollinate the flowers and get seeds? If yes, how do I do it? The flowers kind of look like this:

It was a complete accident that this happened, but sweet! lol Totally unexpected. What a wake up call.
So, help is appreciated.
Thanks in advanced.

Well, your picture isn't coming through, so that's probably why you didn't get an answer.

With a name like McGyver, I'd think you'd be able to figure out how to post a pic. LOL :)

Oh, I just found the problem. I thought that it was impossible, because that's usually what lack of responses means. But now that I'm on my school laptop, I totally see the problem. Sorry guys. lol Apparently this image isn't sharable. Oh well. I'll post the link so that it can be clicked on:
