A Christmas Package

The mom is good for her word and today she is posting about one of my packages that arrived in the mail. Of course she had to pose me waiting patiently for her to get to the important stuff, like helping me open it! You can see by my face that I was not happy about the wait.


Anyway, this package came all the way from The Creek Cats. I had no idea what was inside except that it was a present, ordered from The Creek Cat's mom's store Etsy, from my sister that lives in Italy and my nephew, Opus, and my niece, Olive.


. . . at last the box is opened! I carefully look inside and saw a Christmas card from The Creek Cats along with yummy Temptations and play mice. Then I noticed something that was carefully wrapped in bubble paper.


Once the mom here helped me get things unwrapped I saw a beautiful portrait of me along with notecards. You see The Creek Cats mommie is an artist and did this painting taken from a photo of me. What a wonderful artist she is! I kept checking out the painting and am thinking that I am one cute little kittie if I do say myself.


I am so happy with my present and thank the wonderful artist from The Creek Cat Family. Their mommie has a store, Etsy, filled with so many great items for sale so if you are interested in having a portrait of you made or are in need of special gifts go check okut things at her store.


The mom put the portrait up on our mantel, think it looks pretty good up there. I want to thank my sister, nephew and niece for this lovely present and also for the mom of The Creek Cats for her wonderful work! We all love my portrait!!!

One package down, and three more to go. Will post about those on another day.

Gracie, the Creek Cats Mom is the very best. What a great portrait of you. She really is a great artist. We have gotten a few things from her. You are a very lucky kitty to have your very own portrait. Take care and have a super week.

Hi Gracie! That is such a beautiful portrait of you! That was such a wonderful present!

I am sorry I am so bad about visiting lately - mom is so behind and busy, but I can't really complain because part of it is something she is doing for me.

Anyway, soon she will be caught up and I will be able to be a good boyfriendcat again!

Smooches!!
