Secret Paws 2018 Revealed


Meows from Mudpie!

The wait has been nearly unbearable but I *finally* get to tell you about my Secret Paws package which arrived 10 full days before Christmas, but Mommy made me wait until Christmas morning to open it! Multiple times per day I would walk by the box and nuzzle it, but it didn't do any good. 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 the kitties of Three Chatty Cats, and as soon as the box was opened I dove right in. Here I am reading my name on the envelope.


We thought it was the cutest thing in the world that each of the kitties picked something out for me. The first gift out of the box was Woodrow's. That handsome mancat got me a new nip nanner! I won't even tell you how nasty my old one looks, so it was desperately needed. I couldn't wait to get my paws on it and it almost rendered me unable to keep opening my gifts! Well, almost...



Harley and Dexter have kept me supplied in Temptations treats for many months ahead. I got a nice big bin of both tuna and chicken flavored treats, which both got opened on the spot. YUM!


Feathers!!!

But wait! There was more! Fellow tortie Olive sent me a fun and versatile Jackson Galaxy Air Prey wand toy, and Sophie sent me wand toys from Patch Cat Wood & Fibers. Two of the toys are mice with feathers, and the other set of two have a great scratching material I can sink my claws into with raffia hanging from them. Lots of crazy pants antics will be had thanks to these toys!


Even the wrapping paper was fun!

Can't pose with the shirt, Mommy...distracted by feathers.

The last package in the box was from the Three Chatty Cats' Mom Rachel to Mom Melissa. When Mommy opened it she gasped out loud. You know how often she complains that it's impossible to find anything tortie-related in the stores? Rachel found a darling purple t-shirt with a little tortie popping out of the pocket! It was one of the highlights of Mommy's Christmas and she can hardly wait to wear it out and spread the tortie love!


After every thing was opened I had to take a rest in the pawsome box everything came in and just take it all in.


Mommy and I both want to thank the Three Chatty Cats kitties so very much for their purrfectly wonderful gifts. We couldn't have asked for a better Secret Paws!

**************************************************************

Now would also be a good time to reveal that we sent our Secret Paws gifts to the Farm Cats of Broken Teepee. They wrote about their package here and we're so happy to see how much everyone loved what we picked out.

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 question...how many days until Secret Paws 2019???

Mudpie, I’m so glad your mom finally let you open your presents! We were sooooo excited when we found out we got to buy presents for you! Have fun with all the toys and don’t eat all those treats in one sitting. Hugs to you and your mom. And Happy New Year!
