Secret Paws: ChristMAUS 2009

We decided to jumble up all of the photos that Mom took of us openin' our Secret Paws packages for ChristMAUS this year 'cuz there were lots of photos an' Blogger doesn't make re-organizing them furry easy ... So, in no particular order:

Here's a photo of me on Boxing Day ... I didn't have anything to exchange 'cuz all of my presents are PERFECT for me (an' I'll even share with the boys). Now why is the photo sideways? Mom's iPhone an' the photo enhancement software make things kinda difficult ... So we're gonna leave the photos sideways. It just makes things more interesting. Right?
Sparky Fuzzypants is investigatin' the box that came from Hansel and Tesla. It had goodies in it like fev-ver butt FISHIES!

Samantha Black sent a Secret Paws box where efurrything was wrapped in tissue paper! Fuzzypants LOVES playin' in tissues, so he's havin' lots of fun here ... Mom didn't get a picture of Charmee dive-bombing Fuzzypants an' tissue flying efurrywhere ...

Ooo ... a fev-ver butt fishy is gettin' examined by Sparky Fuzzypants ... Fun!
This is a Watermelon Cat figurine that Mom's cousins, Kirsten an' Matt, sent for ChristMAUS. It's sitting in the china cabinet where efurryone can see him ... Oh, an' Kirsten an' Matt are the parents of Zoey, the Furballs, Cha-Ching, an' Tigger!This is what Samantha Black sent in the Secret Paws box ... There are toys like some 'nip wands (that smell yummy!) plus Sheba foods an' mousies, an' 'nip soft blocks, an' some Fancy Feast Elegant Medleys! YUMMO!
This is the card ... it's a non-vishus deer ChristMAUS cat an' a whole bunch of BOWS! Mom likes to stick the bows onto Charmee an' watch him shake them off ... He wasn't too enthused 'bout those bows.

This box of goodies is from our SECOND Secret Paws present. It came all the way from Iowa! Patches an' Nemo were our Secret Paws ...
If you look closely, you can see a photo of Patches an' Nemo. They are furry photogenic (an' give excellent presents). There's a turtle fishing toy an' nummy Temptations! Oh, an' some Tiki Cat foods ... Even two plushy 'nip toys called "Flea" an' "Tick" that we'll enjoy biting!At dinnertime, our Uncle James an' Aunt Lori came an' opened the Secret Paws present to our woofie cousin, Shadow. Hansel an' Tesla's woofie was Shadow's Secret Paw! Shadow got some cool presents like a plush LOBSTER!

All of Shadow's loot looked furry interesting, but we didn't investigate it 'cuz that LOBSTER looked mighty ferocious an' we were scared.
These are two of the FIVE boxes that we guarded until ChristMAUS.
This ginormous Gizzy-style quilt was made by Mom's cousin, Kirsten. It is a ChristMAUS tree made of hundreds of one-inch boxes of fabric. It must have taken a long time. Unlike our Gizzy quilts made by Millie's momma, our mom won't let us lay on it. She says that it is hers an' not ours. When will Mom learn that EFURRYTHING in the house is ours?
Here is Charmee searching for his blue fev-ver butt fishy from Hansel an' Tesla.
Oh ... THERE it is! Oooo ... an' that nifty catapult toy is attached to the front door's knob right now ... Don't tell Charmee, but I have plans for that mousie that's currently attached ... hee, hee.
This is the ChristMAUS letter that Hansel an' Tesla sent ...
Charmee is snoopervising the box's contents an' wants Mom to open the Catapult NOW!
Charmee checks out Patches an' Nemo ... an' the presents they sent, too! Hmm ... treats look furry delicious!
Charmee checks to see that all of the presents have been opened an' is disappointed to see that they have ... Charmee asks, "How many more days 'til ChristMAUS?"
Okay, back into the box. Charmee wants Fuzzypants' fev-ver butt fishy, too!
"Okay, okay! Keep your fur on, Charmee! I'll give you a fishy."
"Ahhhh ... There's nothin' like a cardboard box an' a fev-ver butt fishy!"
If Charmee hides beneath the tree, he thinks that he's invisible ...
Check out all of the tissue-wrapped presents from Samantha Black! Mom had a good time helpin' us to open them.

This is what the package from Patches an' Nemo looked like before Mom opened the photo an' the card. Thank you, efurryone! We will be sending appropriate "thank you" notes this week ... Smooches to Samantha Black, Patches an' Nemo, and Hansel, Tesla, an' their woofie!
DaisyMae Maus, Cocoa Francis Puff, Sparky Kyoot Fuzzypants, Pumpkin, an' Lucky Charmz (and Jessica, too)

You are very lucky kitties to get that many packages!

Zoey and the furballs (the Zoo Crew) said...

Yes you are furry lucky kitties, but I guess we are luckier because we do get to sleep on our Christmaus tree quilt. In fact, Smoke's sleeping on it right now. Tigger's on the standard efurry day quilt. Hey, how's Cocoa Puff doing?
