We got prezzies in the mail on Friday and Saturday! Well, if we are going to be truthful, Mom got prezzies.

First was the No-No bracelet Angel’s and Isabella’s Mom Sharla made for her. You may have seen it on their blog, Beaded Tail. Isn’t it beautiful? It’s in Mom’s favorite colors of aqua and purple. Lily picked it up in her mouth and tried to walk off with it last night. First words out of Mom’s mouth were, “No No.” MOL.

Yesterday we received the two items Mom won in the auction for Katnip Lounge‘s The Baby.

Zen of Max


One was the book, The Zen of Max, by our furiend Lou Belcher, who has painted portraits of some of us. This package and book smelled of Knuckles and Bugsy (formerly of HH and the Boys and now part of Lou’s personal blog, Lou Belcher Fine Art). We kept trying to open the book and turn the pages to see if they had sent any furs along with the book. They didn’t. Phooey!

BlogPaws Quilt 2014All these prezzies have had the most seductive smells. Best of all was the one from Ms. Stella O’Houligan, on a more personal note. It contained one of the premium catnip quilts Stella’s Mom Stacy made to commemorate the 2014 BlogPaws Conference. It even has all our names on it. Mom still insists, however, that it is not for us. She says it is going in the guest room so we don’t fur it all up. Sheesh…has the woman never heard of lint rollers or washing machines? It’s imbedded with catnip. It’s for the cats! She claims to want it as a good souvenir of her trip, as opposed to the bad souvenir…that stoopid scorpion sting. We suppose that makes sense. Double phooey!

As Calista Jo demonstrates: The aromas are irresistible and pure heaven! (If you don’t want to hear the television in the background, turn off or down the sound on your computer.)

Mom sees the vascular surgeon this afternoon. She promises to let you know tomorrow how her recovery from the scorpion sting is progressing.

Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
