Thank you, Secret Paws!

Charlemagne and Tamar here.  We want to thank our Secret Paws, Iza, Ayla and Marley, from Mark's Mews for all of the great goodies!  

We ended up opening our presents a bit later because Charlemagne got into trouble.  He broke into a present for one of our kitty friends and ate an entire bag of Temptations in one night.  Oops!  Momma was worried that he would be super sick and didn't want him to be tempted by anything else.  

On top of that, Momma's computer is pretty busted.  The screen does't work unless you are pushing on it with one hand and where you have to push changes all of the time.  It makes it hard for her to work on it.  

Here we are next to our box while we waited for Momma to open it:

Here's a nice note fro TBT and the kitties:

Charlemagne says, "Oooh - what's in the box?

Tamar:  "Hey!  I get to see, too!"

"Okay, we can both look."

Tamar:  "Yum!  Salmon treats!"

Charlemagne:  "oooh and a nice box to play in and chew on!"

Here's all of our super cool Christmouse loot!

Tamar:  "Hey, I'm liking this catnip!  Normally, I don't care about it, but this smells good!"

"I'm glad you are happy with yours,  Then you can stay away from mine!"

"You can stay away from mine, too!"

Charlemagne - really getting into the nip zone......

"Really good nip!"

"Hmmmmm.  Mine seems to have worn off,  Bummers!"

Thanks again for all of the goodies, Iza, Ayla, Marley and TBT!

Mudpie's Secret Paws Revealed

Meows from Mudpie! The wait has been nearly unbearable but I *finally* get to tell you about my Secret Paws package which arrived in a ginormous box a full week before Christmas, but Mommy made me wait until Christmas morning to open it! She LIED to me and said maybe this year I could open it early, but then made an executive decision that it would be more fun to wait until Christmas. I bet many of you have been thinking I'm a spoiled rotten tortie who gets everything her little heart desires. Think again!
Okay, enough of my griping and on to the prezzies! I'm one lucky girl because my Secret Paws were Butterfly and Peekaboo from Musings, Meows and Memories, and they managed to fulfill my Christmas wish list to a tortie "T', starting with SQUEEZIES!!! Not only my favorite Delectables Squeeze Ups, but also the original Inaba Churus, which I've never had before. They're AMAZING and come in so many different flavors! I'm so happy I got a sampler pack so I can pick out my faves. (Who am I kidding? I love them all!)
Funny story about the wand toy that came in the same bag as this catnip toy: Mommy didn't realize the wand was made of a springy wire, so when she pulled it from the bag it uncurled and popped me right in the nose! It tried to attack me but it's lots of fun.
Hmmm...those packing peanuts look like fun too!
I love "little" toys that I can bop around the house, and Butterfly and Peekaboo sent me a whole box full of them! Mice, balls, feathers, pom many goodies! I took a long time inspecting each one thoroughly before pulling some out to play with. Mommy has a feeling several of them will be missing before the new year!
Blurry tortie action anyone surprised?
All this loot...for ME!!! Tons of toys, treats, a warm blankie that's super soft, and Mommy got a lovely Christmas candle too!
After I got through checking everything out I was absolutely exhausted and couldn't wait to take a nap on my new blankie. Mommy and I stayed cuddled up like this on the couch until 1 AM!
We want to thank Butterfly, Peekaboo, and mom Tessie so very much for their purrfectly wonderful gifts. We couldn't have asked for a better Secret Paws!
Many thanks as well to Truffle and Brulee's mom Paula from Sweet Purrfections for organizing this wonderful event that makes many blogging kitties very, very happy. Now I have a very important many days until Secret Paws 2020???

Our Secret Paw Package!

Secret Paw

IZA:  Our Chissymouse timing was a bit bad this year.  We all slept late Chrissymouse day and felt SO lazy we dint pay much attention to it.  And Dad has been fussing with a new puter and the little workers in the big box aren't workin.  Then this morning, when we were bright-eyed and ready to go, the flashy-box died and Dad had ta feed it through the wall.  And Dad had ta go hunt fruits and veggies and a chicken.  So by the time we all ate, it was dark.  So we were actually "late for Chrissymouse".

But here we go...

Our Secret Paw is Valentine of Noir Kitty Mews.   And what a good Secret Paw he was!    We got the box a week ago, Dad hid it.
It was FULL of stuff.
I checked it out immediately...
The first thing out was a big ball of cloth.  Box padding maybe?
Ohh, there are kitties on it.  It must be something for US!
WOW!  Its a giant mat.  Look how biggly it is...
 Here's a nose-down view of the kitties...
Bast, I could roll on this for days!
All mine, Bwa-Ha-Ha.  What Dad?  But I found it first!  Oh allright...
ACK!  You CAN fall off the edge.
And then there was all the OTHER STUFF!  Some even wrapped (Oh Noes, I just realized we forgot to wrap our own Secret Paw stuff).  
 Dad set the foods and the kitty-crack aside so we would pay attention to the wrapped stuffs...  Marley heard the crinkling and came out to inverstigate.  He really liked the kitties on the papers "Ohh that white one is a cutie".
But he did some serious sniffin...
And found the crunchies.  He is cukkoo fer crunchies.
So Dad opened something and gave us each a few.  I went right back to the pile.  I mean, there is UNOPENED stuff.  BTW, Ayla is being a pill today and keeping to herself in the bedroom.  
I'm sniffin something unusual at the corner of this package.  It smells like Toy...
Dad, come and open this NOW!   YES, NOW!  "Open... Now".

I never learn.  He is nearly unbiddable.  I know, I know, "Firm Voice, Brief Sound Gap, Short Words".  But he pays no attention to even basic commands when he's not in the mood.
He thinks he's so funny sometimes.  He opened all the OTHERS, singing that "Anticipation" song from the ketchup commercial...
Finally!  And I was right.  But a weerd one!  Its a SnakeSharkCat and it has a mouse in its jaws...
I WANT that mouse Mr SnakeSharkCat!
Hmmm, he has a good grip on it.  It may take months ta get that mouse loose.  I'll have ta KICK a lot.  And then I'll eat HIM too.  I want him to live a bit knowing I took his mouse!
What next?  Well, I'm being careful of that  round knit thing.  It looks suspiciously like a collar, and we all KNOW what Beins do with those.  I BET whicheve one of us carries it around first has ta wear it.  OOH!  I gotta plan, hehe.  I'll tell Dad that since Ayla "missed out" on the unwrapping she "gets" ta wear it.
Meanwhile, there is crinkly paper ta play with too.
I'll just grab some and run off with it...
MARLEY:  Now that Iza is gone (she is SO possessive) I can look at the goodies in peace.  Oh wow such neat stuff!  Ans Dad dumped all the good-smellies and drugs down so I could sniff them.  He gave me some of the Nip, but says we will have a Silverine Party New Years Eve.  OK, that's only um "one littlle piggy, two little piggies...", FIVE nights from now. 
I'm NOT touching tht collar!  I heard what Iza said and she's probly right.   If Dad asks, I'm tellin him it is more "girlcat" size.  Yeah, that should werk...
So that was a great Secret Paw package and we are all thrilled.

Thank you so much Valentine!
