Thankful for Dragonheart, Merlin & Devi

Thanksful for Dragonheart, Merlin and Devi

You read right. This little ghetto kitteh is thankful for three Sphynx cats from Canada. Over the past six months I've been following Merlin, Dragonheart and Devi and you should too. For those who don't know, every year the blogging cats get together and do a Secret Santa that we call Secret Paws. I've been participating for the last four years and have gotten some wonderful prezzies. This year was no exception.

I could tell this package was put together with love. Everything was either made in Canada where they live or handmade except the treats. They really know how to make a cat feel special. There was a beautiful Christmas card and letter explaining what everything was. Their human mom is very talented. She crocheted a wash cloth and soap saver for TW and some toys and a super cool mat for me. Some of the cat toys were bought locally by their home and they also included some Ludwig Spice Noel Canadian dark chocolate for TW and Pop which was quickly devoured. My peeps said it was delicious and thank you.

There aren't many pics of how nicely the prezzies were wrapped cos Pop tore into everything without rhyme or reason. This image of several of the packages is a video still. I am biting Pop because he wants to unwrap one of the packages.

I may look like I'm taking inventory but I'm really eating some of those Greenies SmartBites. We love the Christmasy yarn the toys and TW's gifts are made with.

The crocheted chain was a yuge hit with this kitteh! These stills came from a video TW took of me in action. I don't go for wand toys but strings are among my fave toys. TW hides them unless she's around to play with me which isn't often enough for my liking.

Thanksful for Dragonheart, Merlin and Devi

TW put the mat on the chair next to Pop's chair cos I love to keep Pop company while he reads the paper or checks out his Facebook page. Here she's taking liberties with me while I'm blissed out. The peeps think this is a tender and loving pic. I'm appalled that it's here on the blog. It may ruin my reputation.

Thank you to Mom Paula of Sweet Purrfections for doing the heavy lifting to get Secret Paws up and running and for matching me with the cats at Chat Aux Sphynx. Thanks to Devi, Dragonheart, Merlin and their talented Mom C. who must want to remain anonymous.

I'm sharing pics and the video on the Secret Paws website so come over and visit me there. This is part of the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop at Brian's Home.

You sure hit the jackpot with these goodies, CK! I love that so many of them are handmade. How special! And, for the record, we are in love with that last photo of you on your mat. You shouldn't feel shame for being so cute!

Dragonheart, Merlin, and Devi said...

We are very glad that you like your presents, CK! We are also glad that TW and Pop enjoyed the chocolate - we are never sure with dark chocolate, but it was locally made and Christmas flavoured, so we took a chance! We are very glad to see you on your mat. The email we received said you liked pink, so that's why the mat is that colour and not made in the Christmas yarn. We are also glad you like the squiggle toy, but it is definitely an under supervision type toy! Enjoy your presents!

What a treasure trove, C.K. Such thoughtful gifts! We think all the photos are terrific. Enjoy everything. C.K., we did not get a snail mail card from you. You can rest assured we would have included it in our photo had we. If you still want to send one, we'd be delighted to get it. Sending best wishes for 2017.

Those are all great gifts, their Mom is very talented. I have been following them and praying for Merlin.

Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs said...

What great gifts and you do look very happy and content on your mat. We want to thank you for your card with your furs. We showed it to Daddy, we have been trying to explain to him how impawtant cat hairs are. He doesn't seem to understand that we put all our fur on his clothes for a reason. Maybe now he gets the fact cat fur is a treasure and should be saved for posterity and collected with care.

Three Chatty Cats said...

Those are awesome gifts! Love the stills of you playing with the crocheted string. And that mat is so pretty.

Jean Dion said...

What wonderful gifts! That blanket looks wonderfully warm and soft--which will be perfect for the cold months ahead. And every time you nap, you can think about the loving human who made it just for you. That's a gift that keeps giving.
