ChristMas an' Secret Paws 2010!

Today is ChristMaus an' Mom finally relented an' let us open the package under the ChristMaus tree that had OUR names on it. It was from the Chesney Cats who live in the midwest. Mom said that it's cold an' "wintery" at their house ... an' that they probably had a "white ChristMaus" 'cuz of snow. We don't have snow, but we do have ice ... in the water bowl.

Anyway, Charmee an' Sparky Fuzzypants were furry excited when Mom finally got up at 11:02 AM ... They were all about opening that package.

Mom didn't hafta help them, 'cuz someone who is mostly white an' has a long black tail that he got from KMart decided to sneak peeks into the package at the back part where he thought that no one named "Mom" would look (but she did!).

The package had a box inside an' there was a card with a picture of Emma, Sammy an' Festus. They look furry pretty on their card.

In the card was some coupons so that Mom can use 'em at the store if she ever goes an' gets us any stuff (Mom here: In my defense, I stocked up in September/October and have a cabinet full of stuff for them to eat!)

Their cousins in Oregon ... Zoey and the Furballs ... sent a package with a 'nip toy in it, but as soon as it was opened, Charmee made it disappear somewhere an' no one can find it to take a photo!

So that was what we did today .,, We played with the toys that the Chesney Cats sent in our Secret Paws: Fev-ver butt mousies, a 'nip pillow, an' four super-cool handmade Squiggles! Squiggles are the BEST!

Thank you!
Ho, ho, ho ...
