We want to thank a few humans and bloggers today for some very nice things they have done for us recently.
Our friend Mark gave us some dog and cat food last month, and Jan's friend Johnnie drove her 30 miles (each way) to pick it up. Thanks, both of you! We're just about halfway through it, and we sure are enjoying it!
Cyndi is checking out the stuffed lion KC's ML bought in Katie's auction and sent to us.
Doesn't Sam look cute here? He's checking out the lion too. The little one is a key chain. With these, Katie sent 10% of her auction proceeds. Very thoughtful of each of you, Katie & KC's ML.
Our friends Bill and his Peke Little Girl gave us dogs a bag of Hill's Science Diet t/d for treats to clean our teeth. We would have taste tested them but Jan couldn't get the bag open. She said she'll open it later.
And this package arrived today from Molly, Shadow, Troo & Jake of The Misadventures of Me blog. As you can see there was quite a bit in it. For us cats, some fresh cut cat mint, all natural Chicken Bite treats, 4 pouches of moist food in gravy-- mackerel & lobster, chunk tuna, whole sardines & squid, and chicken & salmon -- a light chaser toy and 6 mice. We dogs got a big bag of pork flavored rawhide links, a bag of treats and a plush dog toy. Thanks so much. We will really enjoy it all.
They let us know they were sending something but when it arrived today, we were surprised to find it was a Paw It Forward box. We were very touched since we weren't able to participate in that. But their note said we aren't to paw it forward.
Percy: Now, if you look closely, you will see where two of our mice went before we cats even had a chance to sniff them. Guess Sam was trying to stock up before dinner. But Jan rescued the slobber-covered mice for us.
It was really hot and humid today and we're not fond of the flashy box, so we cats hung way back until Jan opened the cat mint and gave us a leaf. Cyndi was the first to reach it. Crystal is the one with the glowing eyes behind the scratching post. Then Cotton, Percy & Cyndi.
Wonderful presents and surprises. Many thanks to all of you!
And we'd like to remind you to vote for Merci daily in the Cutest Dog Competition. Those of you who read the original post missed this part because we didn't think to add it until a few hours later. But -----
"We took a vote and it is unanimous. Should we win any week's competition, we will donate 10% ($50) to a blogger in need or a rescue or ..... We won't try to be specific as needs change and emergencies arise, so it will just be a need we are aware of at that particular time. At the moment, we are aware of Katie n da Katz, Romeo the cat's monthly fundraiser, a Poodle Rescue Houston in dire need of funds....."
We hope you will take a moment to vote. This is the direct link to Merci's voting page:
Angus Mohr left a comment that he's not only voted for Merci, but he's added her voting widget to his sidebar so he won't forget to vote daily. If any other blogger wants to add it, give us or Angus Mohr your email address. Angus noticed the code on Merci's voting page is too wide for the sidebar and had to be modified.
