We had expected to be having a Thankful Thursday today and telling you all about our Secret Paws gifts. But an unidentified kitty got into some mischief Tuesday night.






This is what Mom found when she went downstairs Wednesday morning. Not only was efurrything in disarray, but some extra-bad kitty had peed on the table runner. We’re pretty surprised we got our breakfast after this blatant display of naughtiness. Of course, we never tattle on each other. Even though we are not each others’ best friends, we have to stick together when it is humans versus cats.

Due to the inappropriate behavior, Mom said we could not have our Secret Paws presents today. She is letting us tell you who sent the prezies and show you her gift.

So, some cat, purrlease man the cymbals and tambourine and make lots of noise: Our goodies were sent to us by Mom Alana, Crepes and the gang from Cat in the Fridge. We think that is particularly cool as Crepes and Mau are both in the Worldwide Wildcats Troop and the Wolverine Patrol at Cat Scouts.

And here is the special gift for our mom from Mom Alana. Our Mom is over the moon with the super personal gift.



It is a exquisite sketch of Astrid drawn by Mom Alana. We apologize that the photo really does not do it justice. Alana is a much better artist than Mom is a photographer.

Purrlease keep your paws crossed that no cat gets into trouble overnight. That’s the only way we can hope to open our gifts any time before the New Year. Even if we do get to check them out, we won’t be reporting about it until next week.

We have a huge surprise for Friday’s post. We have some visitors who will share the holiday with us. We will introduce them to you in the special post. Some of you will recognize our visitors. But that’s all we are telling you now.

See y’all on the flip side.

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