Woofie Temptations

Hi, This is Sam with today's post on the new box the kitties have to play in. After Jan empties it, of course.

Percy: It was full of interesting things. And see, we got Temptations.  What did you get, Sam?

Hey, Jan, the kitties get Temptations. Where are the woofie Temptations?

Cyndi: Here, let me check. Sorry, Sam, there are no woofie Tempations in the box. But there are treats for you. See, some movies on DVDs.  You like to watch movies.

Maybe we woofies didn't get any treats, but we do get to share something we really need. See, if we can figure out how to use it, we can use it to blog and to earn millions of pennies so we can buy kitty and woofie treats.
A very generous blogger donated a used laptop to us. It's freshly loaded and ready to go. All we have to do is figure out how to hook it up and use it. And we're not going to ask Jan to help us. She's still trying to figure out how to open it. Okay, that's a slight exaggeration, but she's afraid to open it because it's full of butterflies. No, come to think of it, she said the butterflies are in her stomach. Her only experiences with Vista go back over a year ago. On the other paw, we furries haven't had any experience at all with Vista.  This should be an interesting learning experience.

For some reason Jan is really happy to see the array of t-shirts and other items that cushioned our new laptop as it traveled. I spent the afternoon guarding the box. For this, I should at least get a handful of Temptations, don't you think? (I'm a big guy!) But, noooooo! Cats only. Sigh!

We're not going to embarrass our friend by naming her but we certainly appreciate everything she sent. And we're thankful for the others who offered in different ways to help our computer situation. You all know who you are.

Well, we all hope you will remember to submit your entry to our Summer Fun with Pet Humans photo contest. It ends midnight EDT. The prize is a digital camera from Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover's Soul. What do you enjoy doing with your human in the summer? Lazing by the pool? Playing catch? Helping dig in the garden? Boating ... napping ... riding in the car ... Take a photo and visit this post for details and to leave a comment when you've entered. Have fun and good luck.

And ... oh, gotta go.  I hear Jan rattling the woofie treat bag in the kitchen. Bye.


  1. What a great bunch treats, y'all hit the jackpot!

  2. What a brilliant box of surprise treats!!! Me and Charlie love the shirts and yummy goodies!! And a lovely laptop for the wonderful Jan!! We didn't like Vista but are now very used to it - although it's taken a while!

  3. We are so happy you got a lap top and we will get to see more post from you soon. We know that y'all will do fine with it, tell those butterflies to get out of Jan's stomach and come visit our Butterfly Garden instead.

    It goes to show that the CB is a great thing to be a part of!

    Happy Weekend to all the Funny Farmers.

  14. What an awesome box - but too bad there were no woofie temptations. And don't worry - Vista is super easy! You can learn it quick and then you can teach it to Jan!


Thanks for coming by for a visit. We love to hear from you.
