A Present From KC

It arrived! It finally arrived last Saturday and the mom is finally posting for me. You see my good friend and coworker, KC, emailed the mom around the Christmas rush telling us to be on the lookout for a package that she was sending to me. I wasn't her secret paw or anything like that she just said it was something she wanted to do since I had been working hard at the shelter and auction. Isn't that sweet!?!



Here I am checking the package right after the mom took it from the mailperson. I am checking out the box and I think I get a scent of KC. She smells really nice. I tried to open the box myself but I needed help so the mom helped me.



To my surprise the first thing that I saw was the most beautiful, soft, cuddly, leopard print blankie. It is beyond soft I must add. Purrrfect for laying on while catching some zzzzzzs I soon found out.



There were many things inside the mailed box. I had holiday colored toys such as many balls (some were shiny, some with bells in them, and pretty colored ones), little micies that I just love, a little toy Chrismouse, toy candy cane, and a tin with a chocolate cookie inside. I need to add that the mom wouldn't let me have the cookie. She was mumbling something about my deleciate tummy and to save me from having a tummy ache she ate the cookie. I don't think that was fair after all her name wasn't on the package. I might register a complaint with the postal office about that.


Inside the mailed box was a smaller white box with a card on it from KC to me. I tried my hardest to open it up but again I needed the help from the mom. Which makes me think I should reconsider a complaint against her with the postal service. If they throw her in jail or something than who would work for me? I guess I'll just have to let the cookie thing go.



The mom was taking too long, I just couldn't wait to see what was inside. I think the mom might have had an idea because KC gave her a heads up on this. The mom is good at keeping secrets because she wouldn't give me a clue. I thought she would never get this opened but when she did . . .



. . . oh my, oh, my, oooooohhhhhhhhhhh mmmmmmmmyyyyyyyyyyyyyy! A real Squillion! I couldn't believe my eyes! These Squillions are so rare it's impossible to find one. I don't know how KC found my beautiful Squillion but I am so glad that she worked her magic. Now that the gift was open the mom shared with me an email that KC sent. KC said that because I had been working so hard at the CB VSquillion as Shelter Keeper she felt it was right that I should have a real one. Somehow she located one waiting to be adopted in, you will never guess, Europe. Do you believe it! My Squillion looks like me as we share the same color and stripes. (My Squillion, doesn't that sound nice?) Now I have a sibling! This is something that I have wanted for awhile and now it is true. I will post later to let you know the name of my Squillion and how he/she is adjusting to life in the good old USA.



Here I am checking out all of my new gifts! I spent so much time playing and throwing the micies and kept hitting the balls all over the house. The shinny balls were so much fun to throw up way high in the air and then pounce on them when they would try to roll away from me.



Thanks so much KC and KC's mom you both have made me one happy kittie!
You're the best!!

What a wonderful parcel from KC, we can see what fun you had with such lovely gifts. The cookie? well, sometimes you have to indulge the apes, it keeps them happy and ready to serve at all times.

Thank you so much for your kind words of comfort to us on the loss of our darling Angel. We miss her so much and it helped us lots knowing that you cared about us at such a sad time.

What a wonderful package. But best of all has to be the real Squillion. OMC, you lucky kitty.

I am still waiting to be able to adopt my Squillion. I have an idea you and KC might want to consider - I bet kitties would be willing to pay a small amount, like a dollar, for adopting their virtual Squillion, and those monies would add up and be able to be given to a real shelter.

Wow, KC and KC's Mom are so very generous! I guess they really appreciate everything you did, Gracie. You are one very special little one! I can't believe all that nice stuff you got -- looks like you're partial to the mousies.

And that Squillion that looks like you -- how thoughtful! Someone to keep you company all the time.

TwoSpecialWires said...

That bunch of pressies made us happy too, 'cause we liked seeing you in all the pictures! You are quite the photogenic almost-birthday girl!

We made our way over thanks to Asta and Eric. We're the wirey sort, just like them. And tho we've never met any kitties face to face, we're pretty sure we'd love to cuddle up next to any one who would let us. We're the furry fuzzy friendly sort of terrier.

Happy First Birthday, Gracie! We're gonna TRY to make it to your party.

Love
Jake and Fergi xxoo
