A very merry Christmas thanks to Laser, McLaren, and Carry

I always forgot to promptly create a Secret Santa Paws post for the one and only Secret Santa Paws blog. Shame on me! We may be into the New Year already, but our season is still very merry and bright thanks to Laser, McLaren, and Carry of Carry Loves Cats! Indeed, they were our Secret Santa Paws. And let me tell you, they know us well, and they spoiled us!

I adored even just the wrapping itself. It's so pretty! I won't even hide the fact that I kept all of those beautiful, classic tags on the gifts, and they're going to be turned into some sort of Christmas craft or decor for next year.

The kitties loved the wrapped presents, too!

Poor kitties, having to wait for this human to snap roughly a thousand photos before they could open their gifts.

Finally, though, we started ripping into the goods! Guess what the kitties got?

Just look at that feathered kicker toy! It's also infused with catnip. Since kickers, feathers, and catnip are some of the kitties' favorite things, this is a hit! But guess what?

The kitties don't have to share a kicker toy. Why? Because each kitty got their very own kicker toy!

In case you haven't noticed, we're including bloopers in this post. There wasn't much choice otherwise, because the kitties were just that excited about the purrfect gifts they received from Laser, McLaren, and their mom Carry.

As if each kitty getting their very own kicker wasn't enough, they also got an entire treasure trove of toys!

There is literally something in that box that every kitty in this house absolutely adores. Needless to say, the kitties emptied that toy box all on their own very, very quickly.

And do you know what else? Laser, McLaren, and their mom Carry even sent a gift for the kitties' pup sister, Astrid!

I don't think we've mentioned much on our blog what kinds of toys Astrid enjoys, but Laser, McLaren, and their mom Carry somehow knew that pup Astrid's most favorite kind of toy is a plush ball. Astrid knew it was for her, too, because she swooped right in and grabbed it up. Are you ready for another blooper?

Just like Laser, McLaren, and their mom Carry sent the kitties and pup Astrid some of their most favorite things, they did the very same for this here human.

Let me tell you, that sketchbook is not only all sorts of adorable, but it arrived just as I'm finishing up my current sketchbook. I was just thinking that I needed to order a new one, but now I don't have to. I cannot wait to scribble up all sorts of doodles in this adorable sketchbook!

Oh, but that's not all.

First of all, when I saw that little black envelope, I loved the mere words on it. Since I go by the moniker The Menagerie Mom here in the cat blogosphere, seeing La Menagerie on that little envelope sure made me smile. I smiled even wider when I opened up the envelope.

Is that not one of the most beautiful pieces of jewelry you've ever set eyes on? This is a purrfect piece for a cat lady's collection. I'll be showing it off plenty, that's for sure!

Truly, our wonderful and fantastic and amazing Secret Santa Paws clearly know all of us very well, and we could not be more happy or grateful. Thank you a million times over, Laser, McLaren, and Carry! You made our Christmas so very merry and bright!

If that's not a classic, happy Christmas morning sight, I don't know what is.

Merry Christmas season to all! And a huge thank you to Paula, Truffle, and Brulee of Sweet Purrfections for organizing the fun and festive Secret Santa Paws!
