Gomer Pyle Says Surprise, Surprise, Surprise
CYNDI: Hey, have you guys noticed the dogs have been getting all the packages and having most of the fun for a while?
PERCY: I certainly have. But this is our lucky day. We have received our own package and I'm keeping an eye on it so it doesn't disappear before Jan opens it for us.
MICAH: What are Purr Packs?
RUSTY: I don't know. Let's find out. Oops, I don't think you should have gone to the litter pan, Percy. Looks like someone ripped a big hole in the box and started pulling out the stuffing while you were gone.
MICAH; *clears throat* Uh, that would be me. I was lying here using the box for a scratcher and Jan kept telling me what a good boy I am and next thing I knew all this packing just exploded out of the box.
PERCY: Ah, success. I got it, I got it. Ew, this box did not just explode. This is wet. It has Micah's slobber all over it. He was trying to pull it out through the hole.
PERCY: It's a Yeowww catnip cigar. It's filled with 100% organically grown catnip. That's what we could smell through the box. And I have it in my furry little paws. Well, it and Micah's slobber.
RUSTY: So what else is in the box, Percy?
PERCY: Some toys, some treats. Micah, you keep your distance! Don't come any closer!
MERCI: What are all you cats excited about? Can I look to see if there is anything in there for me?
PERCY: NO!! Cats only. Get out of the box, Cyndi. Rusty and I can't see through you.
CYNDI: I think I'll just lie here for a moment and take in the catnip aroma.
RUSTY: Let's see, there are several toys - a ball and a bracelet-type round one, a furry little one to bat around and ... what is this long thing? Oh, it's a dangly door bouncer. That should be fun.
MICAH: Treats, I smelled treats. What about treats?
CYNDI: There's a bag of grain and gluten free tender chicken Buddy Biscuits. We've had them before. They're good.
RUSTY: And a bag of tasty tuna soft Zuke's Natural Purrs. They also have cranberry for urinary tract health. They should be good too.
MICAH: What's this? Oh, Kitty Kaviar. Otherwise known as dried bonito. We haven't had this before. All natural. Yum, yum.
PERCY: Sorry, Jan, didn't mean to almost bite off your thumb. Mmmmmff good.
RUSTY: Yes, it certainly is good.
CYNDI: What does Jan mean about it not smelling like something she'd eat? It has a wonderful aroma. And the taste ... mmm mmm good.
PERCY: Well, this has been fun. An exploding box story Micah can tell at the Liar's Club, fun toys, and delicious treats.
MICAH: Yes, now we know what a Purr Pack is. It's a monthly subscription box. Don't worry, though, Merci, they are planning to have dog boxes before too long.
RUSTY: You can order one of three sizes - The Teaser Pack ($24.99), The Fun & Love Pack ($29.99), or the Multi-Cat Mega Pack ($39.99).
CYNDI: 10% of each retail subscription is donated to local and national rescue / shelter adoption programs.
PERCY: And now for the reason for the title of this post. (Some of you might remember Gomer Pyle from The Andy Griffith Show. He said, "Surprise, surprise, surprise" a lot!) We finished this and took a short break before scheduling it for after midnight.
RUSTY: We went to visit our friends at Manx Mnews and they had already posted their review. Imagine our surprise when we read there was a scratcher hidden under their toys and treats.
MICAH: So we checked under the main compartment and we have a new scratcher too. Jan would have found it before she threw the box away, but this is too good a story to waste. We will not let Jan forget.
We would like to thank Purr Packs for sending us a sample subscription box to review. We were not paid nor influenced in what to post.
