So the first thing to report because I should have reported it days ago is that I got my Frends of Skeezix package!! It came.....um I don't know. Dozens of naps ago, but first I didn't have the pictures off the camera and then the OTW was hogging the computer and then I forgot. I'm sorry Skeezix. I don't think I deserve to be the President of your Canadian chapter since I can't even remember to say I got your great buttons.
This is me with the package. The Big One made the OTW wait and wait and wait until I was done napping so I could open it, and he wouldn't let her do it. I think all the training is starting to take on the Big One. Though I don't know why she just didn't wake me up and tell me the package was here! Naps are important but so is my package from Skeezix 'cause it took so long to get here. I think the man in the blue shorts up here has to bring it by dog-sled!!!!
Here I am admiring the buttons and the really good paper to lie on.
I was right Skeezix! They do make great hockey pucks!!! I sniffed them good, and batted around them a bit.
This was me when I realized the OTW stole one of them and put it on the fridge!!!! It was the bestest one, that had the big picture of Skeezix and was a good hockey puck whichever side it was laying on, too!! As you can see, I sat on the rest and glared so she couldn't steal anymore!!!
The second bit of news is that my peoples are safe home. They even came back when they said they would! I couldn't believe they left though!!!! When my OTW snuggled me just before leaving, she told me she would miss me lots (well, I knew that!!!) and that she loved me (again, not so much with the surprises there, human!) and that she'd be back the very next day in the evening (which she was) and when she put me down I jumped straight into the little box and started gnawing on the flap which makes her laugh, and she picked me up in the box and I licked her nose and was the sweetest, bestest, most adorable cat that ever did live, and she still left!!!!!!! And she called me a monster on the way out!!!!!!!!!!!
When she got home she said they were safe most of the way even though they saw three vishus moose-deers, because most of the way they were driving really really fast. She said the Big One drove one hundred and twenty kilometres per hour!!! She said if I'm going to tell my friends about it, that one hundred and twenty kilomtres per hour is about the same as seventy five miles per hour, which is very very fast, and the vishus moose-deer only glared at them 'cause they could never ever ever ever catch them when they went that fast. The Big One says, "unless the vishus deer start mating with cheetahs and making vishus cheetah-deers" and laughed a lot.
Well of course that would never happen because cheetahs are VERY BIG CATS!!!!! Even bigger than Kismet!!! And you know what else? Cheetahs eat vishus deers! They do!!! Vishus gazelle deers!! I will tell you all about vishus gazelle-deers in my new, expanded Vishus Deers of the World booklet, when I write it. And I'm thinking of writing a Vishus Deer Attack Survival Guide for Cats, too, and I will study how these cheetahs kill the vishus gazelle-deers and we can learn their techniques!
And the third bit of news is that my peoples said they went away to pretend to be Vikings, but they gave away the real reason for their trip when they came home!! They were hunting our Chritmas Presents!!!!!! The Big One said it! He came in the door with lots of bags and said "You monsters had better appreciate us because we went away all weekend and spent all our money on you two instead of ourselves!" And Grumpybutt says he swears he smells catnip! And he'd know, 'cause he's the Drug-Sniffer Kitty!
And the fourth bit of news is that KC's mom says anyone who wants to use the little graphic she made for my Vishus-Deer of the North Pamphlet can, 'cause she made it just for me!!! Purrrrrrs, KC's mom! You're the bestest!!!
And Sanjee, maybe you should put an classified ad on the Blogosphere about you're seeking a fully-qualified ginger cat for a new position as starter-upper of Ginger Cat Wednesday. I think we know several cats who are probably qualified for the job.
Also, Welcome Moose, Nala, Turtle, Chase, Millie, and Pumpkin! I'll add your links to my list in the morning before I do my blog rounds.
Right now my OTW is very tired and I want to go lay on her 'cause I missed my warm spot between her knees last night, and had to settle for burrowing under the blankets by her pillow. And 'cause she gives us treats before she goes to bed and I didn't get any yesterday. So I better get last night's treats tonight. And some extra for letting her go away overnight. And some extra treats to soothe my outrage over her not staying because I'm cute. And some extra treats 'cause she called me a monster!
I'm so happy KC is getting better!!!! I'm doing the Happy Paw Dance!!!!
