Our Christmas eCard 2014 & Secret Paws Revealed

Last year we didn't participate in the Christmas card exchange and regretted it. We got a super early start this year and challenged Ann at Zoolatry with a very specific request. Since Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol is my all-time favorite story, I wanted Truffles' very first card to reflect that. What Ann created exceeded all of my expectations, and I hope you love it as much as we do.

Here is our 2014 eCard — feel free to take it if I haven't already sent you one! I have two different sizes.



And...while I was mailing our Secret Paws package on Monday, our own was being delivered to our front door! An amazing box full of goodies from our friend Julie's feline family at Our Church Cat Family! I told Truffles that she had to wait until closer to Christmas to open her prezzies, but she demanded the box as soon as she saw it. So I took everything out, and this happened:

"Mommy, did you have to take *everything* out???"

I don't often show love to cats, but when I do... it's to ones like you! Nice job on the card, and cute photo! Someone let the cat out of the bag... and into the box! *wags* - Gilligan from wagsahoy.com

We did the Christmas card exchange last year but didn't get asked again. I looked up Jazzi but with her recent loss I figured her mom isn't in to it. But Truffles sure looks like she's having fun, love the card! Love Dolly

We love your card! Dickens is one of Dad's favorite authors, too. We know it's not your actual present, but that box looks pretty nice, Truffles! :)

Lucky you, Truffles! We didn't even get a box from our Secret Paws. Just a kitty t-shirt in a padded envelope. But then, we don't need anything anyhow. Although a box would have been nice!

I love your eCard! So, so precious!

Caren Gittleman said...

Oh I love it! The box is always the best part! Ann did a catabulous job with your card! Love it!

Woah! What a great card, Truff! Everyone knows the box is the best part of secret paws. Unless there's a nip naner in it. Then that's the best part, enjoyed inside the box. - Crepes.

She’ll prolly like the box the best. We’re spoiled that way. Your card came out great. I’m writing mine now or at least my assistant is.

OMC, Tiny Truffles is adorable! How clever! And of course the box is the best part of secret paws, just like it is of any other shipment.

Truffles, can you figure out what you are getting by the smells in that box? Bet you can. And if not, at least you have the box to play in until you get your gifties! Ho, ho, ho, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
