Secret Paws 2022 Revealed

Meows from Mudpie!

I'm super excited to tell you about my Secret Paws package from the handsome Spike William and his mom Teri

Check out all the adorable kitty and puppy wrapping paper! 

The first package we opened was the big one at the bottom of the box. It contained this absolutely gorgeous, handmade crocheted blankie! We were speechless. I LOVE blankies!!! It's SO soft and warm.

The Merry Christmas tissue paper I'm partly on was wrapped around one of Mommy's Christmas gifts from the night before and I had commandeered it, but I immediately nuzzled up to my new blankie to give it a test drive while opening the rest of my prezzies.

The package I opened contained this cute little mouse. True story: we always have a have-a-heart mouse trap set up in our basement because every now and then we have some little visitors, and when I made a beeline for the basement the morning I opened my gifts Mommy knew something was up. Sure enough, we had a mouse! Mommy said I couldn't have him and took him outside, so I was happy to receive a mouse that was all mine!

I've been having loads of fun with these spring toys. 
I've already been tossing them around so much Mommy fears I'm going to lose one!

Yummy! Mommy got chocolate bars, and this cutie pie avacado cat toy looks good enough to eat too! (She's wondering if she could make some guac out of it...) 

Another mousie Mommy can't take away from me!!! 
It cracks her up how obsessed I've been with gnawing at the poor little guy's tail.

They got me SQUEEZIES!!!


Peeking at Mommy through the mesh...

Phew! All the prezzie opening excitement was pooping me out! 
I was ready for a nap on my new blankie.

On top of everything I got, Mommy also got a pawsome new cat book for her collection. 
We just love our loot!

In our greeting card Teri wrote that Spike William loves to make biscuits and nap on his own crocheted blankie, and she hoped I would love mine just as much. After we opened all our gifts Mommy sat on the couch and put the blankie on her lap. I hopped right up and started purring up a storm while making biscuits. Then I settled in for a long winter's nap.

Mommy and I both want to thank Spike William and mom Teri so very much for their thoughtful, generous, and purr-fectly wonderful gifts. We couldn't have asked for a better Secret Paws!


Many thanks as well to BJ Bangs for organizing this wonderful event that makes many blogging kitties very, very happy. Following the tragic death of Paula Gregg earlier this year we were afraid this wonderful tradition would fall by the wayside, so we're very thankful BJ stepped up to the plate.

Now I have a very important many days until Secret Paws 2023???

Dear Mudpie, you got the most fabulous Christmas gifts ever. So wonderful that you were able to open all these presents and find such good treats. And that your mommy got a couple too. After all has a human she deserves a few.

Wow, it seems like you and your Mom hit the jackpot, or in your case Mudpie, the mudpot. The blankie is very colourful and complex. It must have taken a lot of time for your friend to make. And you can have tons of fun with your Christmas bounty, Mudpie. Wahoo!
