Thanks Bubbles!!!

Wow! Our Secret Paws presents arrived! They actually arrived last Friday, but Mom was out of town and then took her sweet time uploading the pictures. Fortunately she took lots of pictures. When we got the box we saw that Bubbles was our secret paw! He did such a great job and we want to make sure we thank him lots! Here is how it all happened:

First Harlie jumped right in and took over as she tends to do. I had to wait my turn.

She really got right in there so she could pick out her favorite toys first.
She found her most favorite toy of all time... a fuzzy mousie with a feather butt! She pawed around in the box 'til she found it, then ran off with it!
That gave me a chance to look things over my own way... nice and slow and careful.
Oh my goodness! There was so much in there that even Harlie had to walk away from her fuzzy mousie to come back and look. Look at all of this loot!
Then Harlie grabbed this thing too and was rubbing around the floor with it and Mom had to take it right out of the package so she could run off with that too.
I mean look at all this stuff! We got cosmic catnip (oh so good!), TWO cans of Fancy Feast which Mom and Dad say we can have for Christmas dinner (we've never had Fancy Feast before and we can't wait!), TWO fuzzy mousies with feather butts, a yellow smiley ball, a foil crinkle ball (one of my favs), a great pink shiny ball with a bell inside... and a great fishie with catnip in it... oh and the squirrel that can be stuffed with nip!
Can you even believe it?? We think Bubbles was so so generous. And we want to thank him very much... and his lady as well (and of course Mrs. B and LT). This was so much! When we were done, Mom gathered everything in the middle of the floor again to see how long it would take us to play with everything... and we played with every single toy within 15 minutes! It was perfect!

Thanks everyone for your helpful suggestions about Harlie. I'll update on that again in a few days. Oh and Mom FINALLY got our Secret Paws present in the mail. The mail lady said it should be there by Saturday, but she couldn't guarantee it. I hope it gets there in time!

Advice for Harlie

Hi everykitty. I first just want to say thanks for your concern and well wishes for my Dad. He is doing just fine... just a little uncomfortable and tired today.

Today I'm turning the blog over to Harlie. She has a few things she needs to say. From now on she'll write in red... because that's her favorite color.

Hi all kitties and beans and other fluffies. I wanted to write today because I'm having a bit of a problem and could use some advice. See, I've always been a mischievous kitty, and everyone in the house loves that about me. But lately I've been naughty... and I don't know how to stop! I've started biting fingers and toes again all the time. I try to eat things out of the sink. I keep getting into the garbage so much that now the garbage can is locked in the bathroom at all times. I know all the things I'm not supposed to do, but all of a sudden I can't help doing them! I'm sick of getting sprayed with water and told "No" and being removed from surfaces I don't belong on. It is a little hard to live up to Mattingly's reputation. Mattingly is very smart and learned all his lessons quickly. I was learning them too, but now I keep forgetting them! Can you offer any advice? I know Mom and Dad still love me, but I don't want to keep disappointing them.

Thanks a lot for any help you can give. ~Harlie

Early Tummy Tuesday

I know it's a day early, but we wanted to participate in Tummy Tuesday this week. Mom didn't think we'd get a chance to post tomorrow though because Dad is having a bit of surgery. He has to get his kidney stone removed. So anyway, Mom came across this picture of me as a kitten and just needed to share it right away... so here's my Tummy for Tuesday!
