Well, we got to see first-hand tonight just how happy the Goody Exchange can make you.
Beauty opened the most amazing package from JB, Misty and PooPoo, and I don't know who was more excited - Beauty, me or Mama!
The package was actually sent to both Beauty and Rugrat, but we know how special our dear Rugrat is. She lives in a bedroom closet and she only comes out in the middle of the night. We tried to coax her out to open up the package with Beauty, but she was too camera-shy. Mama brought some of the gifts up to her and she's playing with them right now next to Papa's slippers.
Anyway, Mama put the package on the kitchen table with Beauty and sliced the sides of the box open so Beauty could smell what's inside. Well, I have never seen Beauty so buzzed. She was sniffing that box and rubbing herself all over it. Then when Mama opened it, Beauty jumped right inside it and started twisting and turning all over the place. She was so excited!
Inside the box was a really nice note from JB, Misty and PooPoo written on cat stationery, some balls, a Cat Dancer toy, Fancy Feast in four flavours, and all kinds of snacks. There were even two metal catbowls. And the best gift of all: CATNIP! Beauty and Rugrat love catnip and I'm beginning to see why. Haw haw...
Anyway, I think that stuff went right to Beauty's head because she started acting like a real silly kitten. I knew she'd lost it when she started sprawling across the table and kicking her little legs out and rolling her eyes. And she was all twisted up like a pretzel and her tongue was spinning around. Geez, she scared me. I've never seen Beauty so - I don't know - happy!
Mama was laughing so much. She also never saw Beauty let her furs down like that. Then again, Beauty's never been around that much catnip before!
Mama put some of the food in her new bowl and she went at it like a crazy maniac. It must have been pretty delicious. I gave her my best Boxerbrowneyes but she wouldn't give me any. Then Mama put one of my cookies on the table so I'd have something to eat too but I wouldn't touch it. That's how good Beauty's food smelled. Or maybe it was the catnip. I'm not sure.
All I know is that I had the hugest spit dribble hanging out of my mouth. It was so long that right after this picture was taken, it touched the floor.
I didn't get any of her food so I walked away, and suddenly I was lying on my back and kicking my legs up in the air. Then I konked right out and had the sweetest dreams...it was the strangest thing ...
Later I saw Beauty fast asleep right there on the kitchen table, all tucked up with her catnip pouch, looking so content. What IS that stuff??
Oh here's Beauty now. She wants to say thanks to JB, Misty and PooPoo:
