So Mom wanted us to post this yesterday…on Thursday. That does make sense, but we were mad at her and so didn’t.

The grudge we’re holding began on Wednesday after we got a package in the mail. It was from OuiOui, Mica Minnie Moo, Carl and Julie from Twinkletoe TAils, one of our super fav blogs.

Our Goodies!

Our Goodies!

Mom won some calming collars in a drawing at Twinkletoe TAils. She was probably more excited about this than anything we’ve won in the past. She wants to put them on Mauricio and Fiona. She hopes that the collar will help Mauricio stop spraying and meowing incessantly and that Fiona will stop terrorizing Astrid. The package says it could take from two weeks to one month before we might see a noticeable effect, so you will need to wait for a report as to their usefulness. Mom says that if they work, she’ll be buying them by the case.

Our kitty friends added some goodies to the package: two toys with feathers and a pack of treats. However, we only got to see these things. Our mean, old mom wouldn’t let us play with the toys or nibble any treats. She put everything away in a kitchen drawer.

The scene of the crime after being cleaned. Didn't the culprit pick a great place?

We think her reason for depriving us is totally bogus. She says it’s ’cause one of us left a huge projectile hurl for her to clean up. Whoever it was, and we’ll never tell, managed to hit one of the carved oak columns between the dining room and foyer and lots of hardwood floor.

Since Chris had been here to clean on Wednesday, Mom was all wound up. When she had to use about half a roll of paper towels to mop up and then a ton of Seventh Generation™ Disinfecting Multi-Surface Cleaner and a toothpick to loosen and dig the vomit out of the nooks and crannies of the columns, we knew those toys weren’t going to be distributed anytime soon.

So, we are really thankful to our friends for sending us such great goodies, but we’ll be even more thankful when Mom forgives us and we can have them.

Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
