Thankful Thursday—Mail Call

Pumpkinpuddy in her stroller.
Last week I posted about how nearly all my toys had to be thrown out because moths had eaten them. For months, I've been chasing the mature moths for the peeps but we didn't know the nest was in my toy baskets until last week. After reading my post, some of my BFFs offered to send me care packages. The first package arrived on Monday, from a great Twitter furrend @Pumpkinpuddy and her sibs EK and Candy. They also have a wonderful blog, Adventures of a Suburban Kitty. If you don't know her, stop by and give her a shout out.

The package was pawsome! It contained a nip nanna, a kickaroo, some little silver fishies, a couple of brand-new Kong toys, and even one of her Toki Poki cards! Many, many thanks to Pumpkinpuddy and her Mom for putting my package together. My new toy basket no longer looks empty.

TW took a few videos of me smelling the package and the kickaroo.  She didn't give me all the toys so as not to overwhelm me cos then I wouldn't know which one to play with. The biggest hit was the little fishies. TW threw them down the hall and I was a blur as I raced after them. This was a fun game that ended much too early. TW says I went to the window and lost interest; I say it was HER who abandoned me. Then I had my way with the nip nana. There are no pictures to document it.


Anyway, thanks to Pumpkin, I now have some cool toys. You're the bestest!

A note about the moths: I've been chasing them for over a year, but the peeps couldn't see them with their old senile eyes. Instead they chose to make fun of me; even excusing me of having "floaters" in my eyes. "Oh look, she must be chasing those imaginary floaters again! Haha!" Then they said I was in "MoMo-land", wherever that it. Well, it might've cost me my entire toy basket, but I got the last laugh! HAH! Now when the peeps see my chasing something or staring intently at the floor, they pay attention.

  9. Probably a good thing there is no photographic evidence of your "nana-abuse". That's illegal in some states, y'know ...

    PURRS!

  16. Does this mean that Mommie will start paying attention whenever I stare blankly at the wall for long minutes at a time?

  17. Oh CK! Whenever there's video of you, I have to periodically avert my eyes lest I get too fainty from gazing upon gloriousness! You were so excitingly slow and deliberate in your movements today too--I could watch each little muscle ripple under that dense and delicious fur.

    I need to watch again pretty soon but The Human says I need a little break first.

  20. Yes we are able to see things like floaters that are much too small for the peeps eyes. Though you lost your toys you gained much more respect and got some nifty new toys out of it. Good going CK you can teach so much.
